Cheers. The ones I've seen that use an aftermarket ECU, have the IAA blanked off. So they don't have my issue. My problem is that I don't understand what these two devices need to function. Is it plumbing to the turbo-throttle pipework or to the plenum, or in the case of the IAC, is it both.

Sorry for hijacking your thread Crouchie.

If it's anything like the normal ET one, you've got one (electrically heated) valve that provides the cold idle speed lift, and the other than does the "damper" on overrun? They both (I believe) need the same paths in the end - either side of the throttle. I'm guessing (without pics) the plate/housing provides the plenum side so the pipe side would go between intercooler and throttle body (or is there a tap on the bottom of the TB itself - been a while since I looked at one)?

Found an exploded diagram on the net with a quick google, but might not help much:

Cheers Phil. The air regulator (IAC) on the ca18 is directly connected to the IAA, that's where I'm getting confused. That diagram should help.

I found a good clear picture, then realised it was from Craig and yes, he's got the IAA blanked off :mrgreen:

Thanks fellas, I really appreciate the help, all sorted now.

Please could one of the mods lift this thread hijack into my projects thread and get it out of Crouchie's way. I'll then add the pics Darryl has sent me. Done

Not done much with the Scim recently, but we now have most of the bits to start building up the spare engine complete with the Canadian manifold. That should start tomorrow.

In the mean time I've been preparing the S2000 for sale, which included getting through another MOT and doing odds and sods on the cleaning front. However, due to the current climate I think I'll be keeping for another a year as I really don't think social distancing is compatible with selling cars.
Whilst I was cleaning it I noticed a rust scab had formed on the OS wheel arch (very very common on these things) and the same arch had picked up a scratch :evil: . So I set about treating the scab from both sides, undersealing the wheel arch and getting it ready for paint. I forgot to take any photos of this. I then had a can of paint made up just to touch in the bits I'd treated. Unfortunately it stood out like a sore thumb, as the paint was a shade out. So for me the only solution was to do the whole panel. This sounded like a great idea, but as I've never really done any proper car spraying, it was going to be a bit of challenge to get it to look OK.

When I bought the car last year I knew it had been touched up in the past, as most of them have (It's 17 years old and made of tin foil). It came with a can of solvent based paint, so as the rattle can plan had failed I bit the bullet and bought a cheap economy mini HVLP gun to fit to my compressor.

So here is today's effort, it's not perfect, but it's a lot nicer than it was :-

Looks pretty good from where I'm sitting, Steve - particularly if that was your first proper effort with a spraygun...

Looks plenty good enough.
I've got several cheap mini guns like that,Chinese knock offs of Devilbiss, or yours possibly Sata.
Really come into their own doing wheels when you are trying to get into small spaces.
If you are doing quite a bit of work they are cheap enough to have separate ones for primer,colour and lacquer.

It’s a belt driven Clarke, and I thinks it’s 50lts 9cfm. But I could have that wrong, I’d need to check. It produces way more air than the paint gun I used actually needs. In fact I had to gag the pressure back quite a bit.
