    Sounds like a good idea but may just leave it as a future project

    Will start shopping for break down cover that will still cover you without a spare as AA refused in the past

    On another note has anyone ever seen evidence of where the standard lines start to become a restriction?

    Nylon braided is pretty reasonable and easier to cut.

    Think must be around the area of where standard lines will start to become restrictive?

    What's nylon braided its not something I've noticed before? I've seen plenty of stainless braided rubber hoses and ones that are ptfe/Teflon lined (which is what I was going to use

    Managed to make a start on the car today

    Started by preparing the storage area and chucked the interior in the loft



    Spent quite some time trying to plan routes for pipes and just trying to work out where things will sit and fit

    Had a look at the amount of room under the washer bottle and it seems like there's less room on the 8l platform compared to golfs, also due to where the charge pipework runs



    Then played with the intercooler inlet and outlets as the inlet hasn't sat well ever since I got it as pointed down ever so slightly and the elbows stuck out more than desired making the bumper really tight and not sit properly

    I had to allow some extra clearance for the 70mm outlet and used a mallet to aid shaping the pipe







    Messy work area during the day



    This is as far as I've got for now which leaves all the exhaust side of things to do tommorrow



    Car filled with crap lol



    Hoping to have it out tommorrow and see if a friend will lend a hand with his van to swap the engines from home to work

    Got to admit its nice to be able to have some although technically only 2 of the 3 spaces i'm stretched across are ours

    Cant wait to get it on the dyno although i'm pretty nervous as Bill is now doing the lines it now means i cant turn it over at all myself

    Always looking forward to your updates with it constantly evolving and the oemness of your build

    Cheers mate am extremely excited

    My friend was going to do all the lines but once priced up and with all the mucking about of getting the engine back and forth to him ive now decided to just go ahead and Bill will do the lines his end

    We've been given a rough moving date of start-mid june so knew if its not done before then it will get put back and back until god knows when so will be borrowing some money to get it done before hand

    Its booked in with Bill for the 3rd of may so have really got to get cracking as its all the custom pipework that will take the time and have got to work out lengths and fittings required once its in

    Yeah the wastegates pretty big although majority of its made up of the pneumatic piston, it is quite old tech and comes from the audi quattro/rs2 as well as the turbo being simular

    When i get the man cave (garage) i will kit it out with plenty off material in the background to keep certain people amused lol

    Got the box off today and clutch and fly's not looking to pretty, the fly could do with facing off but think may leave it as will have a day or two turn around and can't do myself as the work lathe is ****e and not accurate enough





    Wired thing is how the springs have worn?



    The other casualty of the day was a ball joint where the nuts were seized and I had possibly over tightened them



    Am hoping to get the new engine in tommorrow all being well?

    I think cars get to an age where people tend to fiddle about with them a bit more. I used to own a 16 year old Renault 5 Turbo and used to be a member on RTOC. I don't think there was one guy on that forum who hadn't had his engine apart! The 1.4T block used to explode frequently so engine rebuilds were a monthly task lol

    Glad it's coming together nicely even with a few slight issues.

    To be honest i like hearing other people having issues with there cars as it makes me feel better and that it's not just my car that's fighting against me :D

    Am happy to have a run at inters with all you guys, its all in the name of fun....absolutely loved it last year

    Looking forward to what sort of times will get as got 13.02 last year so would have thought 12's should be a shore thing?

    There's always issues with all builds and hurdles to get over some of which only need a hammer and others which make grown men cry lol

    Engine ready to be mates to the box



    In and hanging off the 2 main mounts



    Clearancing was needed for the comp cover which was a slight adjustment with a mallet



    Inlet mani vac source and iat sensor are definately going to be in the way off the charge pipe as suspected so the smaller washer bottle will aid this



    That's all for now

    Your "detailing" will end up being cleaner than the day it rolled out the factory!

    I'm with you on that mate. I got told I should have painted this and that but we were doing a massive amoun of work in only 3 days.

    That engine looks soooo sexy though. Love the ceramic coated mani and turbo.

    even I painted everything on mine shouldn't have bothered though. 4k later it's filth.

    Looking very very good matey, incredibly excited to see this come together, I think it's one of the ones everyone has been waiting for
