Uno Turbo Daily - Build Thread...

Hi there guys

Note been here for a while, but back in the Uno fold!

So, here is what i brought, a Uno 60 with a Punto GT engine conversion.

I wasn't really looking for an Uno again, however this was absoultey mint! Never seen a welder, been waxoled religiously, was just too good to pass up...

Anyway, here are a few of pics of from the previous owner.

Pre conversion





Few pics showing how clean the chassis leg's were!







And a few of the conversion parts







And a few of the pics of how i brought it..







When i brought it, it had a few issues i wanted to sort, firstly a really unstable idle, and a few bits that i wanted to re-do to my spec. Firstly the fuel system...

This was how it come



Firstly, i got a Mk2 Uno Turbo fuel rail





So, cut off the fittings and TIG welded some AN6 Fittings on



I also changed out all the lines to 8mm nylon front to back



Next i needed to make up a mount for the FPR







Next up made up the lines and fitted









At the fuel tank end i replaced the original turbo tank with a baffled tank. The days of an undertank fuel pump are gone what with the invent of high flowing in-tank pumps

Old tank



Old vs new pump



New in-tank pump


And fitted


Next up was sorting a pet hate of mine, bad wiring...
Stuff like this





And after



Before



After



Next up was the engine loom, i wanted to clean up the engine bay, move the ECU and relays into the car and make it look clearner

Here was the loom before



Old plugs



Making a template of the original loom



Mid making



And done, lovely MIL spec connectors







ECU, Relays, Fuses, and Bar sensor moved into the car.

This was the location when i brought the car.



And after, tucked under the dash.





Sorted a few other bits while the dash was removed, fixing previous 'wiring'

Before



After



Also fitted central locking





Next changed a few other bits like the throttle cable as it was ropey..

Old and new





Next up was sorting the lack of any kind of ducting on the intercooler and oil cooler, seen the difference a well ducted design could make on my Supra so figured i would fabricate some up.

Before, you can see the gaps all around where the air would escape





TIG'd up some ducts from aluminium





Oil cooler



New ducts and stainless hardware





Next up i wanted to make an AFM mount as it was just floating about, so...



Picks up on original mounts



Also made up a cable mount



Also TIG'd up some new boost pipes to replace the original mishmash, also changed the filter to a stock air filter housing

Before



Making the new pipes up



ICV Spout



Swage the ends



Fitted and done



Last job was fitting a light grill i got from italy along with Mk2 Sideskirts
