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

Re: Uno Turbo Daily - Build Thread...

Right update 2!

First nice simple thing first, getting rid of my old knob as it was a bit blue for me..



Nice little carbon number to replace it



Next up was to put a proper Turbo boot on, this is the one that come with the car, looked great but prefered the turbo look



Weight of the stock metal boot



Weight of the new fibreglass turbo boot



And fitted



Much better!





Next up was fitting my new boost controller, using the original clock location



Perfect fit!





I still wanted the original digital dash boost gauge to work, so i used the original MAP from the Uno Turbo ECu with a 5V step down power source mounted to the back of the clocks



Cut down



And fitted





Next thing to replace was the original black carpet with a red turbo item



Stripped out and cleaned the floor and protected







Here you can see the original sills, the previous owner regularly waxoyld it and you can tell... no rust!





Now thats a carpet!



While fitting the carpet i decided to add the turbo door and rear cards along with electric windows.

This is how the cards were before...



First up was putting relays in each door, made up a little aluminium mount



All fitted and wired up







Turbo door cards, electric motors and rear cards fitted



Looking smart now..





Rear door cards



Last few bits was to make a mount for the boost solinoid





And also fit my new clutch slave as the old one started leaking.. new braided stainless line too...







Thats all for now folks!

Re: Uno Turbo Daily - Build Thread...

Right update time!
First the Speedo stopped working! Looks like the original Sharp optical sensor had started to break down

IMG_5613

So replaced with a modern sensor, was very tricky!

Next up was a wheel change, got some Strada 14" Speedlines

IMG_5876

IMG_5875

This is how they come back

CF8F002E-745E-4518-938B-E3B708DCDA21

IMG_6094

Next up was to change the rad, i want a 50/50 split with the intercooler. I looked at a few options but in the end went with a 4 core 60mm thick Civic radiator.
So, here goes...

Stock rad

IMG_5946

As the radiator was rotated 90 degrees i needed to split the radiator flow path, so gap cut

IMG_5975

Plate slid into the gap

IMG_5976

Welded up

IMG_5980

Temp switch bung welded in

DF934471-16FE-4D3E-80BD-D6D6CB60A458

Mount added to top to connect to slam pannel

BCEBC23B-880A-44EB-B9C1-AAC557611DE2

Bottom rad hose fits perfect

IMG_5991

Top rad hose needs some work

IMG_5992

Made a custom top alloy rad hose and added an outlet to the top of the rad

IMG_6123

As the rad was moved right to the passenger side i needed some very small trimming and wanted to push all the air through the rad

Trimmed up

IMG_5993

TIG welded in place

IMG_5998

ground back

IMG_5997

Primered

IMG_6002

and painted

IMG_6018

Radiator wiring done, all contained so a direct plug in connection

IMG_6116

And all completed!

IMG_6136

IMG_6133

IMG_6132

IMG_6131

Here you can see the area left for the intercooler

IMG_6139

Last mod was a little anti social...

Welded a T into the downpipe

IMG_6049

Welded in

IMG_6058

and fitted

IMG_6061

And done
