SE5A 4.0ltr Rover V8 Upgrade

Stunning rear lights. They really bring the rear of the car to light.

SE5 with Omega power

For some reason only known to my friends in China on the exhaust splitter the in let is 2.25'' but the outlet is 2.5''. Not being the proud owner of any 2.3'' pipe I decided to reduce it back to 2.25''. So a bit of slicing and dicing required to blend the two together. 2017 Dec 12th 002.JPG 2017 Dec...

SE5 with Omega power

Mike I did consider the angry grinder option to flatten the flanges but I managed to get my hands on a 4 foot belt linishing sander and it made short work on flattening the flanges. Big Bob I did have a similar thought on the threads but it came down to what I had in the garage on a days holiday. I ...

Photobucket

As far as I am concerned Photobucket has done me a favour. I always found it a bit of a pain to add photos as it took so long. However The team on this forum have done an excellent job on the new photo system it is a joy to use. It is completely hassle free and so easy to use it is encouraging me to...

SE5 with Omega power

Well I decided to well all the joints except one on the basis clamped joints are more likely to leak and if I do it properly I will never need to take off the exhaust again. I have taken off the exhausts several times today as it is easier to weld on the bench rather than on the car. It all seems to...

SE5 with Omega power

The rubber hangers (PU) were only £2.50 on Ebay. I bought a metre of 10mm stainless rod and bent them to shape. It seems a bit OTT but was as easy as using anything else. I have finished the other side tonight and it seems sturdy but allows some movement. I am just trying to decise on the advantage ...

SE5 with Omega power

Having mocked up the exhaust over the last few months it is time to mount it to the chassis rather than allow it it sit on the adjustable props on the floor. I welded on some M10 stailess bar to act as supports Dec 6th 2017 002.JPG A couple of bolts welded to the chassis complete the middle mounting...

SE5 with Omega power

Not much progress today as curing the leaks in the garage roof. I spent a bit of time reworking the rear bracket for the gear leaver mounting plate so it should bolt to the transmission tunnel. Sorry I did not take a picture. A friend walked into my office on Friday with the elusive part I have been...

SE5 with Omega power

I managed to fit in 2 days holiday this week on the pretext of replacing the roof on my garage to prevent the rain pouring in. The good news is the floor is on a bit of a slope so it runs out the other end. But this is no good so off with the roof. While I was collecting new roofing sheets I dropped...

Time to adjust the gear stick position so it is returned to the original hole. The Omega gear leaver extension is about 80mm to long depending on the position of the engine. I thought I would need to trim out about 85mm which would have been convenient as Vauxhall provided 2 spare holes. But I did n...

SE5 with Omega power

Well I dumped the engine back in. Engine removal/fitting without the body and any connections is a nice operation! I turned a piece of bar up on the lathe and welded on a couple of nuts to hold on the old ABS sensor as a feed for the speedo and I think it may be needed for the Engine ECU. I need to ...
