    I believe Bill has been welding over the past day or so as the weekend was taken up with mapping cars and fixing other stuff...

    I know the next things on the list are coolant lines and the wastegate pipe work...

    There will no doubt be an proper update from Bill when he has five mins :)

    Havent got a lot to update (car related) im affraid as usually hear through here and facebook....the race against time is now on though to get it done for inters as prepaid for sprint runs and not sure if can make it there without the car :(

    Plus theres no better time to show it off lol...well apart from the used and abused exterior look

    On a side note have now moved house and got our own place (well 25% at the mo) but have got my own garage, drive, garden and of coarse am detached so can appreciate my music again and turn the wick on the sub up :)

    lool.. yea kinda missing something dude.
    Oil Drain line Stacey has asked me to do.. and its going to be a right pia as its access to sump from where it is, and the many tubes, tial wastegates, and downpipe obstructing the path are going to make it hell to come up with something.

    oil drain I can manage. :) Its the hex thing on the bottom of the sump I think.. It might be the dingle fulrum tho.. Hmmm I best be carefull. :p

    If you mean for std egt vw/audi probe they need to be a counterbore type special fitment. Not screwed into a plain threaded hole. I have these made for me. M12x1.0 thread but there is a counterbore onto which the probe must sit against which seals it. Not just the thread.

    yeh oem egt probe. dont remember it needing a counter bore in the turbo hotside, looked to me as thought the probe just sits flat on its nut. Il have to have a look this weekend. Ive 2 options, manifold or downpipe, but if you do the bosses i may be in touch about one
    thanks

    edit: confused now:http://forums.audiworld.com/picture.php?albumid=84327&pictureid=200171

    double edit: AH i see! against that seat that moves up/down the probe.

    I do kinda know what I am describing here Karl ;)
    Its not a collar which slides up and down. Its fixed to the probe and must sit against a bottom counterbore to be clamped tight and sealed

    there's a few steps between here and there Stacey.
    Hoping the build and first startup is problem and leak free.
    times going to be incredibly tight to complete for inters as is.
    Still working towards it.
    getting there slowly..
