It's alive!

On Wednesday evening I was ready to fire up the engine for the first time after rebuild.<div>I was pretty confident that the shortblock was ok was but the real test is always when turning the key.</div><div>To build oil and fuel pressure I disconnected the signal to the coils and cranked it for 20 seconds.</div><div>When I tried to fire it up with the coils connected the car started with a super load bang with fire balls coming out the exhaust. Thats what happens when you have fuel from 20 secs of cranking in the exhaust pipes…</div><div>But after the initial boooom the engine started and purred like a kitteh. No strange noises or irregular idle. I had one small coolant leak from the mixing manifold gasket. This was missing from the FM rebuild kit so I used a thermostat gasket instead. Obviously it didn’t fit. </div><div>
</div><div>The car will be running N/A while I get it trough the annual PKK test here in Norway. Hopefully that will be taken care of this month. I need to fix some cheap LED parking lights and mount the 225 R888 on the 6UL rims and its good to go. </div><div></div><div>
