    Lee: What is a bosch "red top" injector? Part numbers or the car they came from is more useful, as the same color is used on lots of injectors.

    Yeah sorry, I've been a bit nonspecific. The injectors are Saab 9000 turbo red top injectors (you recommended them Aragorn remember??). Not got the part number to hand but I'll post it later.

    Hopefully the Saab reds will be sufficient for my setup.

    Just ordered turbo to manifold bolts, turbo to exhaust outlet studs, turbo to exhaust outlet nuts and an oil drain flange with barbed end. That lot came in at £53 delivered.

    Waiting for a few oil feed components from Earl's too.

    I have been thinking about getting bigger diameter intake hoses (bigger than I bought for the other Garrett) as the inlet on this turbo is a fair bit bigger but I think I'll just stick with these ones and get a reducer to fit to the turbo inlet. The main reason for not being too worried about increasing the diameter is that all of the FMIC pipework is 50mm/51mm anyway so I can't see that there will be much to gain (cheers Mark lol).

    Downpipe cut, marked up and ready to be welded.

    [​IMG]
    Note the themed alignment marks lol

    [​IMG]
    Finally got the correct oil feed connectors, adapter and oil drain.

    I'm nearly ready to bolt it all together (I think..) :happy:

    It's 3" to 2 1/2". The 5 bolt flange will only weld to a 3" diameter but my exhaust system is 2 1/2".

    Having said that, i'm hoping i can run my V8 on a single 2.5" pipe, so perhaps its a useful demonstration if yours makes 300hp on a 2.5" exhaust!

    I've done a bit of research and there are a fair few 200SXs running 2 1/2" exhausts with identical turbos to mine which are producing around 300HP so I'm confident(ish).. GULP!!

    Revo specify 2.5" Exhaust for there GT28 file. A GT2871r will push 400hp with the right supporting mods so 2.5" should be plenty.

    Hell Im running 24psi on my 71r with stock exhaust system with decat :)

    cool

    A8 runs two 2" pipes right thru. I've not really got the room for a twin pipe system on the defender so i'm going to Y it down into a single pipe. 3" would have been ideal, but the stock TD5 system is 2.5", and it would save me some cash at least initially if i can hook it up to the stock system!

    I will hopefully be collecting the downpipe next week and then it's about ready to bolt on (I think??)

    The oil feed is a custom made one which was originally designed to bolt to the old Garrett that I was going to fit; I've utilized this by making an adapter with components from Earl's and GB Enterprises as the two turbos have totally different threads and seats (links)..

    http://www.earls.co.uk/index.php

    http://www.gb-ent.com/

    A few places will make you a custom oil feed but I'd definitely get quotations first as they can be pricey.

    I must've spent the best part of £100 just on aluminium connections for the oil feed/drain and that doesn't include the feed pipe as that came with the old turbo :ohmy:

    I know mate, the cost just runs away.. I've spent probably 3 - 4 times the cost of the turbo on components to make it fit (and work) properly!!

    You won't get any of those programs on that old ECU, you will need to find somewhere that can do a custom map to suit the add ons assuming you are able to orientate them correctly to connect them up and fabricate the required pipeworks

    I'd be seriously tempted to drop a TT ECU in, assuming it fits.

    Bit of an update..

    I've got my downpipe back all welded up (pic to follow) and ready to bolt to the turbo (thanks to Byzan A4 :icon_thumright:).

    I now need:-

    Manifold to head gasket.
    A few more silicone hoses.
    A replacement (angled) oil drain connection to turbo as the straight one is catching the actuator arm!
    Manual boost controller.
    Another ME3 ECU as I sold my other on ebay the other day!?!?

    Hopefully I'll get it all fitted over the next couple of months.

    Yeah it's an M18 boss that you want for the lambda sensor.

    No updates yet as I get married the week after next so it's a bit hectic at the moment. When I get back after the wedding it'll be full steam ahead.

    I have been mostly doing this..

    [​IMG]

    ..Now I seem to be suffering from a faulty bank account!? I top it up and then next time I look it's empty :think:

    However it is my intention to get back to the turbo again over the next couple of weeks.

    I want to get the exhaust manifold studs, nuts, washers etc on order. Can anybody confirm that the correct part number for an exhaust manifold stud is N 0445203 ? (AEB engine)
