GC8 Engine Rebuild – Part 4

With the Legnum back together enough to get it out the workshop, it was time to bring the GC8 over and start working on it.

The engine bay is filthy, so out came the brake cleaner

A little better, but still filthy to be honest.

Time to add some more things to the motor.

This inlet pipe will no longer be used, so I have to plug it.

Random slug of alloy in the lathe.

Plug done.

Intake pipe fitted to the turbo.

The fuel pump is going to be upgraded, so it was time to pull that out.

Pretty neat and tidy from factory.

And the assembly comes out without any real issues. Someone has previously added a DW65C pump, which is boarder line for our goals, so we will be replacing it with a Raceworks 340LPH E85 pump.

I also had the Ryder Racing billet AOS back plate kit arrive along with their Fuel pump wiring upgrade kit.

Till next time.
