As most of you know i have a 929 with the crappy old JE V6 in it, ive finally bit the bullet and im going DOHC JE-ZE. Should be fun

well to cut a long story short the crappy old SOHC JE V6 motor went bang and it seems to ave fucked a valve, well what better time to replace it with a DOHC JE-ZE that pushes just over 200hp..

wish me luck.

here is a pic of the whore:


in order to use the DOHC motor we had to get a loom and computer for it, what a job that was!

here is the donor motor for the loom that i want down at U-pull-it wreckers:


the mess that is the loom:


the motor after the loom was removed:


here is the computer:


hopefully next week ill be getting the motor, ill keep ya's posted

well turns out ive had a stroke of luck, Fours N More which is a very reputable workshop here in adelaide has done a few conversions on the HC 929 before and it turns out that the 929 down at the wreckers was in fact one of their conversions, so, by accident i pulled out the loom thinking it was the DOHC loom when infact it is a custom made loom that actually lets me bolt the DOHC motor straight into my car.

Thanx Four's and More! 8)

yeah that was mine, the only reason why i bought it there was because i had already paid for the SCS tickets and my RX7 went off the road so i had to use the tickets haha

yeah 9ine, im going to get the exhaust custom made if i cant find a proper DOHC one
cheers, Nick
