    Seeing as @nick-b isn;t making any updates, I thought I'd throw a quick one in.

    As you may have read he had issues with the transponder / immobilizer / ECU not playing nicely. But it seems that was not the case, as a mate of his came through today and confirmed he is getting spark when turning ignition. Seems now there is an issue with the fuel pump not getting power or the ECU is not talking to the fuel pump. However, by connecting a second battery direct to the fuel pump, the car started no problems and I can say that the replacement engine purrs very nicely.

    Here's hoping Nick can get the fuel pump issue sorted.

    I don't know the wiring so well from memory on the older cars but I think the points to check will be the Main Engine Relay, the circuit board for the Main Engine Relay and the fuel relay.

    Thought i had better pop an update in here as things are slowly moving forward......

    OK so I have almost got all the kinks out of the B18C4 install, interior is stripped out and I am in the tedious process of removing the sound deadening. I have my rear disk conversion sat in my garage waiting to go on, along with the rear ARB, LCA's and bracing, just need the hand brake cables and braided lines and then I can crack on with that.
    So hopefully this weekend i can finish the clean up inside the car, ready for paint next weekend.

    Another update...... wow 2 in a week? must be losing it lol

    Did a little more work on the weight reduction, stripped out the sound deadening and more interior, started painting the inside too. Just need to remove the sunroof, fit the blanking plate and finish painting.
    Hopefully will have lockup soon so can start the rear disk conversion, and fit all the braces and roll bars.

    A track weapon in the making! The engine bay and highlights really pop with your choice of colour scheme, looks great.

    A lady from our crew at work drives her sons modded EK4 (as he totalled her car!) definitely the coolest motor in the night shift car park. Unfortunately it may not pass MOT this time round, so glad to see the work progressing to augment and preserve your EK, shame they are a rare sight these days.
    Fingers crossed that you and Roger get your work space soon.

    cheers bud, I have always loved matt black and purple, so that is the colour scheme that i am going with on the whole car. The engine is going black so it gets rid of any dirty old looking marks.
    Fingers crossed we get the lockup on friday and then we will have a few loooooong days working on it lol

    There goes the diet lol, spent the last 6 weeks shedding a stone and a half, don't want to put it back on. Can't put my Civic on a diet if I'm not prepared to lose some too lol

    Might just have a chicken kebab with no sauce and no chips, will be a little bit healthier lol
