    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    Default 2.2 tunning under way, well i've got some bits LOL

    Well ive been waiting a fare few months for this to arrive and it came the other day, behold the 2.4 manifold (forced into it by Vid I might add).



    Also bought this 2.4 TB from Vid as he now has a 2.0 SC one.



    In the pic I also have a blanking plate to get rid of the EGR as the 2.4 manifold does not support it, and a nice 70mm silicone 90 bend for the TB. Unfortunately the 2.4 TB will not work at the moment as it throws an EML at 3600 rpm. This should soon be sorted by the nice guys at Courtenay Sport who incadentally supplyed the manlfold.

    No point trying to get the air through the manifold and getting it choked at the filter, so found this on good old ebay for £14.



    The Cotton Green filter comes with a heat shield, but as you can see its a nasty red, so that is ither going to get polished off or painted. Its a sealed unit so some nice cold air.



    And just to make the bay shine that little bit better I won this rocker cover for £12. It was a dog when it arrived but its getting there. Only one cam done so far and that still need a final polish.





    So ive got loads to do, still waiting for the paint I'm getting made up to match that dash for my sat nav mod and then there's still the VXR mesh to carry on fitting to the pre facelift front end.

    So far 120 grit to 1500 grit paper, a dremmle, rotary, megs #83 and megs NXT metal polish, but I think I might have to invest in some Autosol to get that mirror finish.

    Sure is, but its a tomtom. His navman would turn on and off with the ignition but the tomtom will only turn off so I'm having to involve a switch in there also. Trying to use the original tomtom switch as its the same colour as the dash.
