    Im bored of not tinkering with cars so im going to spend some of the Silvia fond on the old girl.

    Well she failed her MOT because of the power steering pump which was fine when i took the car in but anyway while the font of the car is off im going to replace all the belts including the cam belt, water pump, intercooler hoses, induction hose, dump valve, N75J valve ( can increase boost by 2psi), actuator which is very floppy, 3" cat replacement, front sunb mount (get rid of unwanted engine movement), possibly colivers, full milltec cat back, and maybe a front mount IC :) here are some pics so far.

    I have orderd most of the bits pics to follow.

    Got the air con condensor and rad, bumper and other **** out the way now i have total access to the front of the 1.8T lump :)

    While fiddeing with the water pump i noticed it was very stiff so could be the cause of my slightly lumpy idle, its being replaced anyway as its sill not to do it as you have to remove the cam belt to change it.

    [​IMG]

    Rusty old actuator getting replaced for sure the thing flops about all over the palce, it can't be holding me any boost

    Air box out giving me more access to the downpipe and turbo :)

    Yeah been playing with cars for years, i will always attempt these things myself to save a few pennies that way i can spend them on nice bits :) the only bit i am not looking forward to is the coilovers.
    On my last A4 it took me an hour to drill out one of the bolts as it was rusted tight as a nuns chuff :(

    oh bugger! what are you dump in her? a K04 maybe? :idea:

    thanks for the pics mate!

    its getting better by the minute! just watching you is giving me more alot more confidence to work on mine.

    where did u get the snub mount?

    I take it the turbo is directly attached to the CAT?

    cheers.

    Im thinking K04-15 as this is my daily driver and i do 400 miles a week and dont want it to drink to much petrol, and my fun car is going to be another Silvia so this just has to be nippy i am tempted by this though. http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/m...&Product_Code=ATP-VVW-150&Category_Code=VVWTK
    Been in contact with rippinralf on audizine and hoping to get one of his job lot if there still about.

    Got the snub mount from awesome GTI cost about 21 quid i think much better considering how **** the original one actually was, Audi could have done much better.

    Yeah the turbo is connected straight to the Cat, which i may replace as well, seeing as the wastegate has put holes in it.

    not bad, you should change your name to Kerbside Motors. that's a far bigger job than i'd undertake without a garage.

    love the dishwasher thing too, lol, oven cleaner indeed !!!

    LOL and i said i would not do anything to this one and wait for another Silvia oh well that went out the window :)

    I know what you mean im used to it though had my old Silvia in pices becaus of turbo trouble so its all to common for me now, only thing im having trouble with is the cam belt which i have a mate popping round to look at "i hope" :)

    Yeah the dishwasher is great at getting things clean with a bit of extra oven cleaner chucked in for good measure :) just dont put any fairy up liquid in.....

    Good progress.

    Did your old car have a K04 as well or were you planning on getting one before? I remember speaking about it with you.

    FMIC has arrived, i am very pelased with its quality overall and esp the core depth it should keep temps down nicely. I have a eye on the pipes im going to use to get the IC connected as well utilising most of the existing Boost hosing from turbo to throttle. I dont think its at all bad for £70 :)
    Im going to pressure test it at the weekend ;) i dont fosee any problems
    K04-015 has also been ordered from America KineticMotorsport very nice chaps so this should be with me next week :rockwoot:

    Did you phone Kinetic Motorsport to place your order?? Or did you do it online? As i cant seem to select UK shipping.

    These Ko4-15 turbos are a direct bolt on correct?

    You need to mail them directly speak to this guy devin.wing@kineticmotorsport.com
    and say your dealing with an order for Mark Bishop already so they know the business is coming :)

    All in it was 400+ cant rem exacylt i have asked them to label the box as second hand car parts as well so it may slip through the net ;)

    Answering your question it is a direct bolt on replacment for the K03

    it something like tihs.

    say if its £400, the add custom fees% (varies depending on part usually 2-10%) x 17.5VAT

    is it coming via ups? if it is they add a broker charge!

    the hoses i ordered they forgot to declare freight! what a cock up!

    hoses cost £130 + £30 delivery

    imprt VAT cost £13
    broker charges £11.79

    on the package it said car part samples usd declared amount $40.00, rang up UPS and they said zen racing dint list freight so customs estimated this figure of £45!!! doing this from memory.

    lol cut long story short they wanted £58+VAT to recalculate!
