I hate screamer pipes. So much.
Possibly something to investigate on lupo.. and make its outlet 3.5" into its 3" system when it goes full fat k04 hybrid shortly..
Cant see how it wouldn't be a gain even if only little
Ah I thought we were talking about the downpipe welds
Nearly a week without an update! Will this be ready for Inters?
Yes i want to see this beast on the strip kicking 7 shades of sh!t out of most things there.
im excited for stacey so much!
Its biblical. The money and time gone into it, it will be awesome to finally test it on the strip!
Come on stace updates
The fag strip? surely get it on the track?
Nah Stacey can't do corners very well
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
5minutes? Probably took him 20 to type out the thread at the top of the section about mapping
Oi cheeky ****er....its sods law you happened to come out with me in the only occasion ive ever spun my car
I did see somewhere he wrote about an up and coming welding marathon in the last couple of days
lol... but not whilst @ work I did'nt... Created that over several evenings actually
bah.. poo bag
and as if by magic and between fecking dozens of interrruptions by phone calls, deliveries etc.... its finish welded.
lambda boss's and egt boss to add only now to this bit.
Tial gate to attack next and oil drain and lines.. (going to be tricky as **** the oil drain!!)
Undo the bolt, watch it drain, eat some indian while its draining, do bolt up and fill?
or am I missing something?............I know, the exhaust is in the way?
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.
Good luck :thumbsup:
bill do you sell those egt bosses??
they're m10 x 1.0 aren't they??
i need one. or tap my manifold, not sure
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.
There's a spider in there!
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
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.
Looks lovely bill.....can't wait for it to turn over and know "its alive"
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
£15+postage btw and in stock
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..
scotch mop debris
didnt doubt you for a second bill :thumbsup:
Yeah do know theres more to it yet but just getting excited
I would like to think everything is leak free but its easy to forget to tighten the odd thing or make a mistake so affraid as much as id like to I cant promise you that one
its not leak free already btw.. your PAS drips
going home knackered........
I know ive got a slight weep on the PAS pump as has always been damp in that area but have been trying to locate a seal kit for the pump and is on my to do list
Looks sexual and sits nice and tight to the floor pan
Yep by design I might add.
suffering with muchos hay fever today which has'nt helped.
Tial project tomorrow.. and it looks pretty fiddly.. then oil drain, and coolant lines...
Did you have a minimum boost level in mind? Not checked the tials opening pressure as yet.. will do that tomoz.
Looks gorgeous up close stacey! I can't wait to hear yours! I posted a vid of mine on bills FB.
