    Gaz,

    Aiming for this Friday. The methodology is as follows;

    1. Engine on bench dyno, wiring/Megasquirt experts to attend, complete 80% tune. So drive-able and safe. hopefully this Friday.
    2. Check engine, valve clearances, etc.
    3. Put engine in car and service. One to two weeks. Car needs new dash, new steering wheel and a few other upgrades including the completion of the sports seat install.
    4. Take car to wiring/Megasquirt experts for final 20% tune on their rolling road.
    5. Road test.

    So probably a month in the process but hopefully starting this Friday.

    Hopefully you are driving it soon. It should be a beast. I finally got my e34 running sweet after 3 years of stuffing around. I’ve even got rid of all the error codes. The wait is worth it, even tho it has been as u know a pretty messy process. To do car upgrades one character it teaches you is resilience.

    Engine on the dyno. The megasquirt guys will wire up today and tomorrow and 80% dyno run as early as tomorrow. Then we'll put it back into the car along with new;

    1. front recro sports seats.
    2. steering wheel.
    3. dash.
    4. 300km/h gauge cluster.
    5. 2 by plx gauges.

    Then off to the megasquirt rolling road for final tuning.

    It is hooked up but needs further plumbing. The first bench dyno will be an 80% dyno only. We'll then put the engine in the car and take it to Megasquirt's rolling road for the final 80%.

    Just called the engine builder. Some minor wiring to complete and he has called the Megasquirt guys who have stated are available this week.

    Here's hoping.

    While I'm awaiting the ever illusive engine dyno my gauge cluster finally turned up today. It turned up in Jan but then got sent back but finally, after turning up in the Netherlands 2 weeks ago, is finally on my desk. Apparently 2 old waxed banana boxes were used in the packaging and Australian Customs were worried something may have crawled from a banana 20 years ago (these were old boxes lying on the floor of Ivo's BMW shop for years) and into my gauge cluster. So we Fedex'd it last week. Here's some pretty picks of it on my desk. RPM and speed to match the projected engine results.
