    Still working away. Ended up removing the whole engine so we could work on an engine stand. Just honed the bores and about to fit IE rods. Engine should be going back in around midday tomorrow.

    Nice one mate, decent progress!
    I thought you would end up removing the engine, makes sense and you can actually see what your *** doing...

    We're all in the cafe at the moment waiting on some big fry ups to fuel us for the morning.

    We had an issue with 2 of the 3 inserts on the turbo (to mani) had come out but the bolts were still in them. We left them to soak in penetration fluid all night and they came out this morning.

    Today we need to sort out the XS manifold. It's so difficult to *** fit.

    Should have the engine back in by this evening

    Leave it out you hounds lol

    All I can say is "I hate XS power"! I don't think they could have ever fitted one of their manifolds and DPs to the same car at the same time! The fitment is frankly gash.

    Lol. I told you it was tight! It was a massive arse ache on mine.

    Also make sure that it is as far away from the heat shield as you can. There's an annoying heat shield bolt in there, which will create an annoying rattle. You'll need to modify it probably.

    Good luck mate

    Engine is all done and in the car. We have spent a stupid amount of time struggling with the top DP bolt to the turbo housing. The bolt just won play ball and we're starting to think part of the thread on the turbo is slightly worn. Once this bolt is in we can start connecting hoses and cables back up.

    We ended up removing the entire block in the end Bill so we built the whole thing up out the car then craned it back in. Currently trying to fit the DP partly from the top and partly from the underneath.

    Not trying to be a c**k in asking this question, but did you trial fit the downpipe to the turbo while the engine was out to make sure it fitted ok? or is it at a funny angle now it's installed and hence the issue?

    Yes we did mate. We had to grind away the top corner of the DP to get it to fit properly. We are about to try and drop the sub frame to get more room.

    Scott- pi55 off with the pics. I've got over 100 pics but I'm kind of busy at the moment to upload them

    Just stopped for a pot noodle lunch! We finally got the DP back on with the sub frame lowered. All my workers have left for Sunday lunch but Tam will be back in a few hours. I've now got to get the drive shafts in and then it's just hoses and electrical connectors before start up
