So yeah. That was the beginning.
I then set about pulling apart the spare block and checking all the specs and giving it a good clean and honed the bored.
Everything looked great.
I also ported the head and fitted the mls head gasket and built the engine up.
I used my injector tester to see how the stock injectors flowed. I got 210cc from them but they were not too even. Within 5% I’d say.
The turbo I am using is from a 1.5 cdi Mitsubishi colt. Or smart car 1.5 cdi. Got the car togeather and first start she was purring like a kiten. After 50 miles and 6 heat soaks of the new engine I changed oil and filter and started to put the foot down a bit.
Instantly it was lean. ( I use ld performance wideband)
I decided to check the fuel pump and sure enough it was going bad under load. ( this caused destination which squished the rod bearing. Causing low oil pressure spinning the shell and destroying the crank as per video)
I didn’t have a spare fuel pump that would do the job so I just stuck on an aem 320lph pump. Haha mega mega overkill. It flowed so much that the stock fuel pressure regulator couldn’t handle it and the fuel pressure was up at 60 psi base.
I then installed a set of red rx8 injectors that flowed 302cc at 3bar. These atomise better than the stock ones.
As you guessed. Suuuuupwr rich.
I then installed an adjustable reg so I could reduce pressure to make fueling a little leaner. Idling at 9 afr isn’t good haha.
Then I installed a walbro 255 pump but it is still flowing too much fuel. Even at 10psi base fuel pressure.
I then bought a 110lph pump that I’m still to fit.
