RE: Red Devil - a Kadett 200iS Story
She has started up , all is good. I removed the engine and stripped it apart, sent the block in to skim the deck.

Put everything back together after a heat up start to check for leaks i found a leak that seemed to be water coming out between the block and head to the outside, i removed the head and installed a normal carbon gasket, after heating up the same happened but found that it was a water pipe behind the head.

Now still a few things to do.

1. Relocate radiator fan
2. Upgrade brakes
3. Wiring and programming Dicktator ECU.
4. Exhaust
5. Charge Pipes
6. Piggy bag fuel pumps.
7. Modify and spray front bumper.
8. Replace front doors
9. Replace rear Bumper

So she is up and running currently. Running Std management and std Injectors for now, will run like this for about 1000 Km then i will start with the mods on the nose for the Intercooler and the plumbing..... Cannot wait to go boosted, have done about 100 Km and all looking good, had some issues here and there with hoses, replaced them and went on. It has been a journey so far , the build started in Nov 2016 , learnt a lot during the build and glad i did not give up. Will update shortly after running in.

Just a short clip after the first successful Start-up.

Exhaust was not connected yet.
