That sounds like a good plan, I use an emerald ECU with Jenvey throttle bodies on the K Midget. The Emerald setup is well proven over on the K Series conversions and I find it really easy to use, they are pricey though.
Thanks James relaying your experience.

Emerald is one I am considering.
Last year I spoke to someone who has done a few Astra turbo builds.
He thinks that Emerald is one of the better ones and concurs with your observation about ease of use.
Another I am thinking about is Omex.


I favour buying a complete set up from one source. That way you know you are getting compatible components.
:( The internet is full of stories of the difficulties encountered with mix and match EFI set ups.

A lot of it reminds me of folk buying £100 mirror lenses for their cameras and then being annoyed that the results
were not as good as the professionals like Laurie Campbell or Niall Benvie. They professionals were spending
£4-5K on a single lens for a reason.....

No. 3



Not good news I am afraid.
Have made a start on the nearside, cut away a section of (the remnants of) the outer sill
and while expecting it to be bad, was surprised at how bad it is......
I am not sure, should I be warning they folk of a nervous disposition to look away?

This is the front where it meets the A-post. Water had crept below the tread plate and the sill is rusty on the underside too.
The middle (diaphragm) sill here has vanished.

Looking up through the sill into the B-post, no less.
I made the hole with just my fingers :( . Whilst not actually holed the adjacent areas are very thin (and would undoubtedly
look like a string semmit after shot blasting :shock: ).

The C-post to sill join, doesn't look too bad, but however the hidden top outer sill has rotted away.
About 20 years ago I broke a W reg Dolomite 1300 for spares. The back passenger door wouldn't open,
on removing the door trim the reason became apparent, the linkages inside were disconnected.
On opening the door I was greeted with an almost non existent C-post.



Whilst the outer sill is worse than expected, at least most of the inner sill is intact (except for the front).
I will fit a full outer sill. To this end I have ordered one. It is a £174 cost I wasn't anticipating but these knocks are to be expected.
