Yes Mr Colin CHAPMAN : light is right
Car interior did not receive big modifications or updates. The entire harness has been swapped for the VTEC one and a lot of time has been spent removing blaxon after a complete strip down.
The way to follow ? The “Chapman way” : LIGHT IS RIGHT
Checking engine parameters on track is mandatory ! I got rid of my no-name oil pressure gauge and installed a set of STACK gauges to monitor :
- OIL pressure
- OIL temperature
- WATER temperature
One gauge prepared with its own harness. All wires are connected to a custom removable plug for an easy access and removing.
And even if the engine is ‘stock’, I took the opportunity to install my Innovate AFR gauge. I was wondering if my old narrow lambda were still working well and this will be very usefull later with the incoming upgrades …
… Content of the box. A complete system ! You can just read the value on the gauge, send it to the ECU and even connect other plugs to have a working closed-loop installation. You can also rely on a good sensor : BOSCH.
And something that was absolutely not in the shopping list for the car : a Nardi 350mm leather deep corn steering wheel. And after 10.000 kms with the car I have absolutely no regrets for this ‘error’ hahaha !
