Replacing original fuel pump with a CIS version as this system works with higher pressure instead low pressure injectors.

wire harness from donor car was , as you can guess fkd up --that why its called a fairy tale-- again dissapointment.
I kissed that dead chassis many times but it did not wake up :joker


Preparing a new connector cable and we should be able to finish installation next weekend.
then only few steps away from testing pressures on the fuel system. :jsmile

Next time I know for sure I am picking the correct time period donor and base instead of upgrading and downgrading complete cars. :conf :pale

How do you say that again???
I don't think I heard you right!!!

John,

The Turbosystem and the donorcar are both 1980-1985 era with the mechanical high pressure injection called CIS.

My Cabriolet is a 1991 and already new type everything , like fuel rail with injectors etc etc.
So in ways I am actually downgrading my car to become time correct :wtf :help

Sometimes I wished I bought a complete programmable standalone system but I am going for the nostalgic looks and drive.

Do you hear me now :h6 :jsmile

Are you going to make your own wiring harness?

I am going to make a connector cable factory look from "new to "old" :hi

The motor wire harness from the "old" engine was -lucky me- plug n play to the fuse panel.

Preparing the car for its journey to the exhaust wizard :cool

He is going to fit a new downpipe to tail and fitting the Turbosmart wastegate as this has different flanges that the original.

after that I should be ready for the first time startup :conf

Yesterday , the car was parked again.

Oil was draining out of the intercooler :rmad

I decided to look for the ultra rare non AC version intercooler which is front mount instead low mount.
and found one !!! speaking of luck :beer and it is shipping as we speak

What's the source of the oil? Location and orientation of the intercooler may not be a factor.

The reason for this trouble is probably because I included the carterventilation on top of the valve cover to the vacuum system en this is good with natural aspirated engines but when you put pressure on the ventilation the oil return gets clogged and therefore pushed out at turbo inlet and in my case I think also crankcase seal through to the clutch.

When I start working on the clutch I can convince myself I am Mega stupid
Untill then I ignore my mistake :-)

The non A/C intercooler is almost as rare as the 100+ intake so I needed to score anyhow
