    Bit more progress today... in between helping Bill with the Lupo I managed to get a few more things sorted...

    Cut the angled alloy pieces I needed for the charge pipe and trimmed the hose from the turbo to suit...









    Unfortunately ran out of argon for the TIG so couldn't weld them today but plan is to flush the welds before painting...

    Next I fitted the manifold/turbo into the car to make sure everything fits and to work out the wastegate... fitted coolant hoses and the elbow for the TIP...



    ...just need to connect these with a little bit of 100mm alloy lol...


    ...so, a little work to do lol...


    Next I played with the wastegate... I am a little limited due to the lower position of everything... so ended up with this...




    ...the extension was required to clear the gear change cables...


    So of course the next thing is to paint the Tial a decent colour lol....

    In a rare change from the norm, I think I prefered it in Purple

    Not that it doesn't look good in silver, and more in keeping, but I think some bling hidden away could have been like a treasure hunt for us at the shows!

    Today I have been doing a bit of finishing up on the B5 Lupo... mainly sorting the cam cover (that of course I painted lol) and the heatshielding...



    Did a few little things on mine today... the way the cover sits bothered me... it was never right since I fitted the new inlet and modding the charge pipe bracket made the cover sit lower and touch the charge pipe so I drilled out the spot welds holding the cover locating tab and tapped for M4...


    ..this lets me adjust its height...


    ...then flattened out the little brackets that the front clips of the cover fix too...


    ...redrilled the hole to retain positioning and trimmed off the rest... painted them black (of course)


    Cover now sits better (much more level) with clearance for the charge pipe...


    Last thing I did was to drill and tap the turbo's compressor housing for a boost take off that will be used by the N75... I did this rather than have a stub welded onto the charge pipe as its one less thing to weld (they are fiddly little things) and keeps the top of the engine free of pipes etc... obviously I painted the brass fitting


    Charge pipe and throttle body should be welded up tomorrow... throttle body is just getting a few beads welded on to stop the hose from popping off..

    Charge pipe will be flushed/smoothed before painting

    Must be pretty scary taking a drill to a brand new GT35

    Looking good PT, I honestly didn't expect you to be carrying on with the OEM appearence when going GT35 and top mount, most impressive!

    So... it is the end of my christmas holiday... back to work tomorrow to deal with creating data exports for the crazy french

    Anyhoo... at a point where there are loads of small jobs to do... Bill welded beads onto the 70mm throttle body which of course I then painted... before I could fit it though I had to re-drill the adaptor plate for the 70mm TB... I had already had the bore taken out to 70mm so I marked up the holes, drilled and tapped







    I have now also removed the penetration from the welded beads and finished the inside of the TB a little to clean it up... Bill had also welded up the charge pipe so set to work flushing, filling and painting that..




    Looked at the oil/coolant lines too... oil feed test fitted... will make some brackets etc to hold that securely..


    Started on a coolant line but tbh I am not happy with it so I have ordered some more stainless and going to have another go...


    I really need to add a flexi in but seeing as I had a small incident involving fire and stuff with a burst 'flexi' on my last setup I have some better ideas on that but as Bill did point out I would be better off getting the oil drain done first as this dictates the clocking of the CHRA... once done then the coolant lines can be sorted...

    Got a few other small things sorted and made a list of stuff to order next week... charge pipe was dry but yet again the bloody paint reacted despite me trying to be careful this time (other stuff turned out fine) so fitted it to the engine anyway knowing it will need sorting later...








    So thats it for now... need to order a load of kit in the week including stuff to make the oil drain, some seals and stuff, clutch plate and exhaust boxes to make the back box... heatshielding should arrive in the week... going to use a combo of the OE one as its not bad on K04 cars and sure it up with other tactically placed shielding as required... plan is to turn key early February

    My feet are actual killing me with all the standing up lol... not used to it at all :D

    Small update... a few parts turned up this week...



    ...made a start on the back box...


    ...and roughly mocked up some tail pipe options in photoshop... these use tactically cut 3" stainless bends..




    Slash cut and cutting to follow the bumper profile may be a bit more of a challenge...

    hope to get a bit more done tomorrow... ideally the oil drain mocked up ready for welding and coolant lines... need to get this lot done so the welding of the manifold can be finished and I can get it off for ceramic coating...

    Still waiting on a few other parts but hoping to have the engine in for the end of the month so I can get the DP and exhaust etc finished ready for first start!!...

    Little more done today...

    Coolant lines...




    Oil feed...


    Oil drain...


    There are of course a couple of gaps to fill lol... these will be filled with PTFE lined flexi's...

    Now that the lines are essentially done the mani can go off for the final welding and then off to be ceramic coated..

    Getting there :D

    Day off to day to go a do some more... the build is at the loads of silly little jobs stage...

    First job, tailpipe... had a go using two 90deg 1.5D bends...








    ...put the back box in place to get a better idea of where things were likely to end up...


    Next I knocked up one of the hangers...






    Bit more to do but parts of the box needs final welding now before I can do the rest and the DP needs fabricating before I can see what else needs doing to mate the back box to the centre section


    Last job of the day... using a section from one of the tailpipe offcuts I made a bracket for the coolant lines...








    Just need to make a little clamping bar to hold them in place and job done...

    Getting there :D

    Not that many tbh... I measured the gap between the pipes on a miltek to an S3 Bill has in at the moment and used a flat surface and a set square to make a mark to cut... used the chop saw to start the cut (its a little brutal) and finished off with a hacksaw...

    Then ground it a little finishing off on the linisher to get the mating surfaces flat and bingo...

    Took a little effort to get it to where I was happy but its worked out ok...

    If you are passing then all good but no need to make a special journey mate although obviously always good to see you... I can get a slash angle from the miltek on the car thats in but yours has the 'special' tailpipes so dunno if there is a difference..

    I think I am just going to stick to the slash cut rather than the slash and bumper angle as it looks a real c*ck to do and I don't want to end up scrapping these and have to start over...

    Just make sure it doesn't stick out too far. That's the only thing I don't like about the Milltek "Special". An inch off it and it'd be way less Nova.

    Will try n pop up if I can I'm not sure what difference there is if there is any... But always around to offer help where I can!
