Relay unit deleted from bay.
Injector loom tuck almost complete, just need to extend the harness slightly for injector connectors. Solder sleeves in progress at the dining table! :)

Thanks pal.
All back together now, with resistors built into oem mating connectors on all deleted items.
Was planning to fit battery and turn it over today, but the weather had other ideas! Will try steal away some time tomorrow. So close now

It's alive again!
Fired up eventually and died a couple of times. Then idled OK when up to temperature.
I was beyond nervous with the key and panicked a bit when it started stuttering. Quite relieved but it'll need a good run sometime soon.

Found a slight leak at pas reservoir. Not sure if the pipe fitting has cracked or the pipe has a split. Think I'll replace the reservoir and trim the pipe slightly just to be sure.

Never fully resolved the pas leak, might tackle it again over the winter months. For now it's re-taxed and will be finally reassembled at the weekend for use over next few months. Ran out of funds for paintwork, but just want to drive and enjoy it in 2018!

Retaxed and taken out for a spin at the weekend. All good. Then used it for commute to work today... Had to stop not long after leaving home as CEL came on, with 8 fault codes!
18010 standard :)

I had cranked it over without the fuel pump fuse, which may explain some, but the SAI has been coded out, odd that came back. I also recently deleted evap canister, had hoped resistor would do the job! :(
All codes cleared and not come back since.
It also made some funky sounds when I parking it up, seems my half refitted bumper (no valances) results in a rubbing arch liner :D

SORN and tucked away for winter tinkerings. No MOT this year as EML on, suspect original Sai delete isn't quite right now after I redid resistor and connectors, and evap delete may need coding.
