    It is a bit Dave, however, I shall reform it!

    I won't thrash it so much all the time, and I'll be nice to it, so as a result, it shall reform from it's slaggish ways and decide to stick with me for the remainder of it's life

    Bill -- how's the fit here? I've machined these to fit that terrific Elizabethan collar of yours. Good? We found a bit difficult getting the early prototypes sized properly.

    I'd rather know first what value they provide independent of the F23. What kind of a value would they be? I don't yet know.

    Why are you stuck? You don't want to simply use the stocker? I've found it works pretty well. All the dynos we have published are using it...

    What turbo are you running anyway? What specs?

    anyhows... anyone spot what the problem is here? (another fault found on the w/g, and why it was sticking open, sometimes and not others..)

    oh joy!
    beware folks..





    Runs also a Phenolic insulator gasket, which has been "tufftied" into a transition gasket (smallport to largeport)

    Also, a couple of hoses for DV and N75 have been replaced for Forge silicon ones, as what was on there was splitting.

    New oil filler cap ordered, new N75 fitted, fluided up, dogbone bushed... Just waiting for the new larger AH FMIC core to arrive. (the one which should be come AH's std S3 offering thereafter) - tests will be done of course to see p_drop etc etc

    Yikes! thats terrible isn't it!

    Thanks for the other bits Bill - I knew if I left the oil filler cap long enough something would present itself.

    Have you heard anything from AH fabs?

    I can't wait

    AH may be doing something with it... which tuffty might hear from them about in a day or so..

    Should be interesting to see how it performs

    If your hotside had inserts to bolt up to the mani rather than threads straight in the hotside then chances are its a KKK one and all should be good...
