04/03/13 - Izuzu engine conversion - part 2

Have turned the turbo compressor housing and refitted the manifold you will need to replace the dump valve acuator pipe as will not be long enough. I found a piece of blue silicon hose to reconnect it and some M5 socket head cap screws to replace the god awfull Torx screws fitted on the IHI turbo housing. Whole job realistically took just over an hour to do, luckily Isuzu use metal laminated gaskets that you can just re use so the cost of doing this mod was virtually nothing

Quick update on costs so far as weighed the Vauxhall Astra shell in this morning, im doing this conversion on a budget so here are the figures so far
Car £300 inc delivery from Bridgewater not bad considering that 120 miles from Denmead :)

Sold wheels and tyres for £50
Tail gate gas struts for a £10
Pumped 40 litres of diesel out of the tank a rite bonus £56
2 Brand new wiper blades now residing on my Hilux must be worth £10
Scrap value from EMR £141.50

Total £267.50 back for car and bits sold giving a spent cost so far of £32.50 for the engine and ancillaries i think that has panned out fairly well :)
