    Non-Westfield build

    Oh dear lord I love this thread...more pics.....dont forget a video of that V6 singing....IMHO one of the best sounding motors ever! So many fond memories of my 3.0 Alfa 75 and the handbrake that bit you to keep you awake...classic.

    Aim mxs info thread

    Not sure if your ECU has CAN bus output? If it has then its just a matter of connecting the data wires together between dash and ECU then bobs your uncle.

    Cutting exhaust/inlet holes in a bonnet

    I used a mix of Permagrit tools from Easy composites, never chipped anything once...awesome stuff! They do needle file, dremel bits and jigsaw blades. Wouldnt use anything else now...goes through fibreglass and CF like a dog eating hot chips.

    First pic shows the slightly extended mount....but it was only a small mod to get the width right.

    I used Sigma mounts from the factory on my ecoboost which is the same block, one side was extended slightly to get it to fit correctly...so I would ring Westfield and ask.

    Help! need some electrical wizard. I've got some of these (as below) and the guys at SCS have gone home so i cant ask them whats going wrong. http://www.mouser.com/ds/2/187/honeywell-sensing-speed-sensors-1gt-series-3231520-947405.pdf Cant seem to get a signal out of it on the bench when connected to a 12v supply. Signal is supposed to got to 0v ish when it detects a metallic object but absolutely nothing is happening. Do i need a pull up resistor?...not sure that would help as i;m not really seeing any change in voltage between signal output and ground/ or power when i place a metallic object in front of it. Help! as i have 4 of these on the car Why does everything else (kind of) make sense but electrics are the spawn of the devil!
