    When I did my GT4 turbo, I used ceramic coating and a jacket...the jacket didn't look great...

    @<tuffty/> I’ve just been informed that the variable valve adjusters should be all the way to the left when doing the chains is this true? I hope not I don’t think it was in the workshop manual if it is

    Looks like it’ll perform well on your setup.... not a turbo I’m familiar with, does look meaty

    All my fittings were o-ring type (on the IE fuel rail)... obvs you don't use anything when attaching hose fittings to the AN male fitting as they are friction seal...

    If they are straight fit like on fuel pumps etc then you would typically use copper sealing washers... if they are taper fit then oil/fuel resistant thread seal (rather than thread lock)... I have used whatever Bill had kicking about at the time... was an orange coloured thread/pipe sealant by Forch iirc...

    Yeah it’s just the threaded part I’m on about not sure if they are a taper fit will check and see If I can pick some washers or correct thread seal up locally

    So when dressing the turbo I noticed the ports aren’t drilled through luckily I was paying attention, anyway I’m going to use the vacuum port but are there any benefits on using the speed sensor port ? Or is it not needed for my goals?

    It’s in :yahoo: but as always one step forward 2 back it’s very tight fit and is touching the heat shield and also looks very tight where downpipe / wastegate will go but hopefully do able

    I will have to look al
    T some hard piping to replace the coolant feed pipe from the header tank as the oem pipe sits to close to the turbo for my liking and looks a mess tbh

    Definitely did, You start to realise how close you are to finishing when times I’ve felt out of my depth, few bits of coolant pipe to change, bit of wiring, fmic pipe work, tip, fuel feed to sort and can get it fired up before it’s off for custom downpipe I’m hoping @badger5 has more
    Ecu’s in by soon aiming for start up for new year

    It’s amazing how much room it takes up, when I saw PT’s it looked like there was ample room. Getting there

    Those that have done the carbon canister delete, do you have to put a resister in the electrical plug or can it just be tucked away

    You won't need a resistor if using IECU... you can just un route it in the map

    So finally got the 4motion TB fitted and finally have some clearance the csf rad definitely made things tighter, 601A9430-C179-49EA-90B7-4BC66D095CED.jpeg
    66E8FFB0-5F2A-4BA7-9819-272CE9FE6D3C.jpeg

    removed the carbon canister to de clutter the bay abit but might try and fit the fpr in there as it’s a ****** big thing
    Can a fpr be fitted on the side? And does the inlet have to be the bottom port so it’s pushing towards the fpr for a accurate reading or could I use the bottom port as a return?

    I plan on venting of the rocker cover straight to the tip I have fitted a new rubber in the pvc valve but not sure weather to fit a catch can aswell, how much do they actually catch?
    Have ordered a boost solenoid from badger5 and went on a mini spree also have ordered
    Black fmic pipe work kit and also ordered some proper clips for the joints
    Silicone 90 from turbo
    Silicone coupler for turbo intake
    8mm Ali pipe for coolant tank return
    16mm Ali pipe for coolant tank feed
    More 6an fittings and fuel line
    102mm id proram air filter (it’s huge)
    Silicone hose for vacuum
    And arranged getting the 8 pot calipers posted for painting all while telling the misses I don’t need more parts good job we don’t have a joint account

    I was emptying my catch can every 1000 miles. There would be around 50-100ml of oily watery liquid in it. I don’t plan of plumbing mine into the TIP on this build. I had been advised by various people including those in the motorsport industry that plumbing it back into the TIP means your engine has to burn it off, oil fumes naturally reduces the octane...... how much of that is true I’m not 100% certain. But I wouldn’t want my engine burning off the **** I find in my catch can personally. I’ll be venting to atmosphere, many are concerned with the smell, I didn’t really notice it with mine.
