    I'd jut like to point out that the EGT sensor wasn't found where it is in that picture, it was hanging down by the dog bone mount but I put it up there for the pic.

    I am a bit annoyed that I didn't think of it on Tuesday when I was messing about trying to get the mani off. However nobody else bloody thought of it did they lol

    Niki showed me this the other day -



    It's on Ting-Tong's car so he's just using it as a test bed **** about; it's a K04-023 in the same state of tune as Westy's and a similar power with no intercooler. It makes 12psi at 4800rpm when stationary!

    Ting Tong's car has had such a hard life lol. Its' like the kid you used to bully at school; it just keeps coming back for more and eventually you start to love it.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Wow. 4 WMI inlets. Wouldn't want the WMI failing on that lol.

    Did he tell you what type of AITs they were seeing?

    Knowing how unreliable my WMI has been since fitting it in January I think I'd still like a FMIC as a failsafe

    He didn't tell me the figures, but I'll ask next time I speak to him. He just said "and it doesn't get hot", so I'd presume they are pretty good. Ting Tong's car is always mental, he just gets Niki to put whatever he fancies on it and run it at it's maximum so that they can learn from it.

    The spool up on that car is unholy, totally unlike anything you or I could comprehend on a K04. It really puts into light the criticism that our turbo's get for not being up to the job, actually they can be made pretty bloody brutal (as per your car) if you know what you're doing. There are a couple of videos on facebook I think.

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.
