I imagine that the inlet and outlet just have to have a decent vertical gap between them to promote flow?


Youll see in the Milner photo quite a large bleed tank.
Im not sure exactly how large one should be :(

The most important thing is to have it above the highest coolant point in the engine bay, so air heads up to it, and cant return.
Higher up the better.

Yeah mine is definitely at the highest point, so that isn't a problem. The extra capacity, (Up to 4 litres!!), is there for more extreme motors, (or conditions), than mine I believe so I guess it will be ok. It is after all, over and above a standard set up so it cant do any harm.

No you didnt. Youve made up a simple bleed tank.
A nice looking one though :)

A swirlpot looks like these:

So a bit more like this? :D

Added another inlet to my bleed tank for the air to go to. Man, cars are gluttons for plumbing once you add all the stuff I have!!!

Wow, I've never seen a FMIC shaped like that. Really cool idea!

Sorry been awhile, anyway update time!

Got my dash back from being recovered.

Really happy with it. Short length suede in black with red stitching.

With the gauges in place.

DSC02068.JPG


My upholstery guy couldn't guarantee that the suede would stay stuck down in the windscreen vent area due to the heat of the sun and the small contact area so i made up some slotted curved pieces of aluminuim and got them powder coated and screwed them in place.

No the screws aren't rusty! They are bronze coloured. I couldn't get black and I actually think they look quite good!!

Also been working on my bonnet. I needed to put some venting in it. I made these about a year ago.

They were to go in my original bonnet with those ugly vents in it, (see on the first page).

DSC02081.JPG


So I figured I can still use them in my new set up. Time to break out the cutting wheel!!

Vents installed temporarily cause of paint etc.

They look a bit square in the photo but they are tapered. You can see better here,

Here's a view from the back.

The hope is that it should allow the air flowing from the front out and take some of the heat from the turbo with it!
At least when I park up the heat can escape from under the bonnet, and the rain wont fall directly on my turbo if it's raining.
I dont know if thermal shock is an issue on a turbo but if I can avoid it why not?

nice work. I've always wondered about the potential of thermal shock on the turbo with the 185 RC vent.
I will have to consider a beanie to introduce some protection.

Seems that I am also modelling my pipe routing from your layout as well. Keep up the good work :)

I just wanted something different. It came up on our version of ebay . If you dont know it's from a St162 Corona. I had the grille dechromed and painted it black as were the indicator lense surrounds. I saved a bunch of weight by getting rid of the pop up lights as a bonus.
I have plans for the bonnet including a colour change!!


I had made this suggestion to people here in the US as a modification to make and everyone thought I was crazy. Glad someone did it and showed just how damn sexy that can look. I don't get everyone's attachment to the flip up headlights. I look at that and say it looks much more luxurious, modern, and it should also be looked at as a performance piece as it will drop weight AND net you better light output than the sealed beams. Even converted sealed beams.

Will you go with an aftermarket HID kit? I would if I were you. Just don't get any blue colored HIDs.

Thanks for all the comments guys!!

Yeah DEE CEE I might invest in a beanie as well cant hurt to keep the temps down as well as protect the turbo.

Toxygene I will stick with stock lights until I get it all running sweet. Easy upgrade later!!

Since I am getting my car wired at my work by my boss, and my other workmate broke his leg this meant the work piled up so my car got pushed to the back burner. Such is life!

I am trying to source some manual window winders and are also looking at removing the sunroof mechanism and bonding the sunroof in. I never use it and it's starting to rust so if I am gonna pull it I may as well upgrade it. There is a guy in poland that was selling fibreglass sunroofs, hopefully I can get in touch with him and source one.

Will update when I can, thanks for your interest!
