    Good work but.... I must say that fmic is tiny, especially as you live in such a hot place too!
    and
    your intercooler pipework should be a little bigger too. 63mm i would recommend. even more so if your plan on running high boost for big figures.

    Well done though. youve turned the car around in no time!

    Update time :)


    So i did nopt end up getting the water meth kit as my phone was stolen, so the cash will go to that.


    As for the car:


    Just some general pics of the TIP being made and complete, the DRIFT DV, DRIFT Air filter and a new 4 wire Bosch Lambda.

    Also the car was started today, all seems good, just an oil leak either from the sump or the oil feed to the turbo, also the timing belt is tensioned too tight :p sounds like i have a supercharger. That is it for now.

    Ok so i have been quite lazy lately, but here is where i stand at the moment.


    Some pics of the TIP sprayed and final fitting.

    Then i decided it was time to install a bigger cooler
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Got a nice Intake temp drop with the cooler and picked it up for a steal.


    Hit the 1000km mark on the motor and did an oil change.

    So seems like the Turbo on the car is basically given up. Starting to smoke more, oil in TIP and boost pipes and very noisy. Such is life, now to recon one :sadlike:

    Ok firstly, the turbo seems to be holding up, just a bit noisy and slight smoke every now and then.


    Now onto other things i have been busy with.


    DP had a crack in that so it got fixed on Friday last week as well as a few boost leaks that were found.


    I also got a new set of tyres for the 18's Achilles 2233 (big thanks to Collin at Rivonia Tyres)

    Next i got my hands on a WMI kit (Snow Performance)
