Then looked out the window
Maybe I'll leave it for a bit.
big garage required!
Been sunny and hot all day over here
Well I fitted it up while the missus made dinner.
Kit was well put together and the hardest part was removing the old airbox especially when I dropped a screwdriver between the airbox and turbo. Damn hot down there I can tell you. It was a doddle to fit up and a quick drive round the block revealed, well in all honesty very little. There is little induction noise but you can hear the turbo spool up now and the recirc valve is heard continually pliffing away. Seems to sound best when being brought up to about 2-3psi as it just gives a subtle Darth Vader esque breathing sound.
Will see how it goes with regards to heat soak and will add giving the MAF a squirt with electrical contact cleaner as part of my monthly maintanence regiem.
