EA Progress

Hey Guys,

I've actually pulled my finger out and I'm starting to do a bit to the EA. The engine went in today for all the machine work to be done. My boss is reco'ing the head on the weekend as well as giving it a port job and removing the ridge in the combustion chamber to help lower the compression. And last but not least I bought a KKK K27 Turbo of Walkinshaw that should be here by the end of the week :)

I have cleaned up most of the interior and am in the process of putting it in. I have come across a slight problem though......the interior I have is out of a Ghia wagon, so the rear seat hinges are slightly different which mean I will have to somehow swap the ones over off the old seats, shouldn't be hard hopefully.

I am also after some opinions on what to do with the big gaping hole in the rear door trims where the ash tray/elec window switch are usually positioned. I am thinking of tidying the edges up by putting some of that upholstery tubing stuff around it as well as getting a thin piece of MDF and putting it behind the hole, spraying it the colour of the car and putting a badge of some description on it. This way the window winder won't hit on it. Does anyone have any pics of other ways of covering it up???

I also read in the Haynes manual that CFI engines supposedly have more compression than MPFI engines. CFI has 1040kPa per cylinder and MPFI has 1010kPa per cylinder, is this correct?? I've never heard of it before. If it is, how do they raise the compression for the CFI's?

Re: EA Progress

I'll check the Ford manual but I'm pretty sure the comp is the same.

The combustion chambers in the heads are a different shape.

Re: EA Progress

Compression Pressure (Min):
3.2 + 3.9 CFI = 1040kPa
3.9 MPFI = 1010kPa

Re: EA Progress

I still havent got it back but as of Friday they starting putting in the new ECU and only had the ECU, cooler piping and fuel system to go so hopefully it will be finished by this weekend.

Then I need to sort out my transmission which is slipping, Hopefully I can do that cheap. Then once I get my new motorbike registered Im going to take apart an engine and rebuild it like your doing.

I cant wait to get it back.
