    Decided to go with JE.

    Was told this morning that they arrived yesterday afternoon so they gone to engineers for balancing. Motor should be ready by early next week and I should have her back by the weekend.

    so turbo is in, battery moved and WMI racetank fitted. ill take pics of how it looks in the boot soon enough lol

    here is the turbo after it came back from the engineers



    thats how much oil came out of just the cooler



    then on saturday night while driving to a mate our lovely road works constructors decided to dig a hole across 6 lanes of traffic without even a warning sign or lights and i hit it damaging my rims!!!





    original wheels for the win!!! im sure reps would have broken into a million pieces and i would have been stuck on the side of the road like the other 6 or 7 cars that were there.

    Your car is looking more and more ready for the track! Epic dude...

    So your exhaust didn't get any louder? How many boxes/ resonators are you running now?

    And what is this DIY you speak of? Stiffer actuator for for the k04?

    dude, just buy an actuator.

    Get yours off, cut of off the bracket,and all will become very clear Cut the arm off yours and weld it to the arm on the new one at the right length.

    the actuator itself should be able to just be drilled and bolted to the stock bracket after you cut the old one off, proper easy job.

    ok so got stuck in this week with my car trying to get it ready for track day on sunday!

    1st up was doing a actuator upgrade, thanks to dan and nick for the info on it, thanks to sidey for having one and thanks to gizmo for forcing me to do it lol

    this is a 14psi t28 actuator



    so started cutting the old actuator off to get the bracket to use for the new actuator





    now the t28 actuator is shorter then the k04 one so had to extend it





    test fit on my spare k04









    it def feels better and holds boost for longer with out having that uncontrolled spike

    next up was boost leak test (thanks to gizmo once again)



    and so much of fail when i did this, system could not hold more then 0.6bar without finding leaks everywhere

    tip was leaking
    3 leaks in the welds on the boost pipes
    map sensor leaking
    tappit cover leaking

    fixed up all the welds
    then i took map sensor out and retapped and actually used proper bolts and not self tappers like the people that made the boost pipes



    then nick was too kind to send me this little box that was packed so well i needed a electronic saw to cut it open lol





    lol he even gave me 5p in change hahahahha



    next was replacing oem tappet cover gasket and repairing the leak on the oil return line from turbo

    made my new tip











    been having issues with my catchcan as its not catching the oil as it should its just going straight out the other side lol so did an experiment to see how it works

    made the inlet stick out furtherr then the outlet



    then put a wall of sponge to "filter" it



    im busy spraying my porsche twist track wheels white with plastidip, will finish up with them tonight





    thats it for now!


    people to thank!

    Loking awesome mate!

    are you on actuator pressure only with the new actuator on there? or have you tried using full boost too? Does it still control it OK? or has it upped the boost over all?

    thanks dude tested last night against a k26 8l a3 last night and gave it a good hiding car feels very strong but at in 4th at 5700rpm it felt like it pulled back, could be the coil pack wiring screwing me around or it was pulling timing
