OMG! you are so close! what r u waiting for!!!! haha

getting it tuned will be fun.,.

then do a skid! then again, the way the weather has been lately........hmmmm

also take the rockercover/head cover off.. looks way better showing the leads ("the twincam valley")

brakes have been upgraded, time will tell if it was enough tho!!!

decided on an 80mm throttle body instead of the xf so had to ge the plenum modded to suit.

got the leads custom made, just have to fill the gearbox up with oil, source an engine dipstick (somehow lost mine :S), put the plenum back on, source a 3" to 87mm(ish) silicon adaptor and i can turn the key
i got a dipstick is it for a 25det? i think i got one on my other motor itll cost ya a skid tho

burgo: cheers for the offer dude but i actually need one for rb30, i'm assuming they are different. also a skid will prob cost me about $300 lol!!

genki: cheers yeh she's close just ran out of time on sunday night. i will keep the cover on, imo it makes it look incomplete having 6 dirty 10mm leads tangled everywhere haha

thanks mate! fingers crossed she starts no drama's on a rb25 base map. as soon as it does i'll book it in to be tuned for a couple of weeks after, give me some time to neaten everything up and triple check it all, then the fun begins. it owes me LOL

Well guy's I'm happy to announce that after 1 years, 6 months, almost to the day, my twin cam vlct finally purred to life (or growled). Video below, we got it all ready to start at the death knock this weekend and luckily she came through for us.
Points to note before any comments are made:
- yes we had to short the starter motor to fire it up, I haven't hooked up neutral start and ignition because we still have a B&M to put in
- yes i can see the smoke
- no there is no radiator cap or overflow hooked up, we really only just wanted to see if it would go before the night was through.

It sounds like an animal with the cams, granted there is no exhaust hooked up but...

Enjoy!

Good to see my dipstick works! You get the indicators sorted? And did you need to thaw out after the bike ride back from my place?

exhaust and shifter is in, just gotta finish the interior and minor elec stuff.

drove it round the block yesterday - incomplete spec.
sounds like nothing i have ever heard, not sure how to describe it, sounds kind of confused lol.

run in tune next week

the 910cc injectors were hard to get the base map running nicely, fouled 3 sets of plugs.

it shoots a constant flame out the exhaust ..
