Me sorting out the oil cooler and re mounting it so that i can fit the Frontera front mount. I went through the whell arch, have made sure it will clear the fog lights (which it does, if not they will be removed as never used) it rejoins to standard pipe routing after this.

This is the pipe work. As you see more than clears the wheels. Arch liner still off, PS we removed the arch liner as the engine came out through there.

Finished off the oil cooler, moved power steering pipes back too. Note the multi coloured cable ties. Crystal palace FC style:(:(

Sorry I couldn't make it today guys, my neck is a tad painful at the moment but it's feeling better than it did this morning. Judging by the pics it looks like you've done a grand job indeed :beer:.

If you need a hand tomorrow then I'll be able to pop up for an hour or two in the afternoon... yoooooouuuuuu liiiiiiiiiiiike?

What's left to do?

Rob as said earlier not a problem. Left to do is wire in ECU, could do with your knowledge. Fit injector rails and injectors. Get cam seals and do cam belt. Put plugs in, lead and dizzy. Mate the exhaust and fit the front mount. Also got to sort linkage, daddy cav has some so need to contact him tonight, see if i can get it tonight!:)

Best off seeing if you can get hold of some proper vacum hose. I'm not sure but Halfrauds may sell some stuff.
