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

Bigger than I thought it would be but will see how it performs if I don’t get my results I’m after I will change it next year to a precision or g30 and maybe get the gravituned tubular manifold but I’m told It will get me My numbers

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
Cheers

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

Was hoping to get more done but got rained off, still at least that’s one job done just looking into what’s best pipe to use for custom coolant lines at least now I can look at getting the fmic pipe work ordered up and fmic fitted

Is there any difference between using the oem n75 valve or or something like the aem one?

Hope you got some sense of satisfaction when you sat back and took that photo of the engine in place.
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

Nice one... the CHRA looks like it need clocking round though

<tuffty/>

Yeah will be able to do that in place should of really done it before but the test fit was that tight didn’t want to take it out again

Nice work though... I suspect I won't get around to starting mine now until the new year... especially now I have changed my plans a little

<tuffty/>
I’m sure once started it won’t take you long at to be on road again,

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

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.
