    right, i removed my rocker cover, charge pipe, inlet manifold and throttle body today, and have dropped them off to be professionaly mirror polished.

    ive also ordered a load of 3mm, 5mm, and 8mm blue silicone. to replace as much as the grotty rubber as i can.

    got myself a new rocker gasket set ready to go on.

    but need a bit of help on 2 things.

    what size nuts and bolts to i need to refit everything? i want to get stainless, as the standard stuff is all green lol.

    also, the silicone from charge pipe to dump valve. i think its about 25mm ish, but has quite a bend in it, so can anyone tell me what style of hose is best for this ie 45 degree bend, 90 degree?

    hoping it will all be done for this time next week :yes:

    cheers

    I wouldn't bother fannying about with making the 2 hoses that go from the charge pipe. You can get silicone replacements for £20 for the both on eBay.

    I'd love to see the mirrored stuff when you get that on. All my hoses have now been done, next weekend I'll be doing my cam adjuster gasket and cam gasket and paining intake mani and rocker cover.
