  1. 370 single rear mount for ease of construction and maintenance
  2. Unless you bought a R33 a few years ago and you'd be quids up.
  3. Just finished welding up the pipe from the IC which goes to the turbo, it misses the ARB, Lower arm, steering rack and max travel of the wheel now I'm on the home straight to the rear of the car. Nice easy long semi straight sections.
  4. Thanks again mate hope to see you at some of the shows
  5. Looking for a pair of Cats for an upcoming MOT let me know if you're willing to part with yours. For a DE
  6. First dibs on this where are you located mate? Massive thanks in advance.
  7. Cheers mate, will hopefully have some more time this weekend to crack on.
  8. Sorry mate just beat you to it You can follow my build process, I may also be able to provide help (No guarantee) it's all new to me.
  9. Fabricated a blanking plate out of aliminium for the stock cold air feed. Mirror polished it to fit in with the rest of the bay, all needs a good clean for show season but that's a job for another day.
  10. I couldn't help myself no gaskets or oil feed. Disclaimer: (it is full of oil and bunged off only run it for about 20 seconds) before someone comments that i damaged the turbo
  11. Test fitted the pipe all seems good need to slightly adjust the rotation of the 3" exhaust flange since I tacked it blindely. But not bad for a first attempt Test fitted the IC pipe everything seems to fit perfect so onwards with more piping I'm going to mount the pipework to part of the subframe just above the lower arm since I'm using smaller 2.25" pipe I've got plenty of room. ** excuse my DIY blanking plates for headlight washer deletes **
  12. Cheers mate many, many more bends to come
  13. Couple more bits done got to take some more pics tomorrow. Firstly started bench testing the oil system for the turbo gotta play around with it but atm got it set to 45psi to the turbo. Also drilled and mounted the small oil resorvoir i made to the crash bar using 10 nuts and bolts just to be safe Also first time making AN hoses by cutting them and adding the connectors to the end luckily I've had my tentus booster shot because I got pricked and stabbed roughly 200 times while trying to fit them (give or take a hundred) Also started routing the pipe work from the intercooler around and over the lower arm. Complete pain in the ass as I'm sure any of you that have done a rear mount will know, working out the max travel distance of the wheel, ARB, lower arm, steering rack etc. But i think I'm home from tacked everything together will test it tomorrow and if we're all golden I can then continue the fun only another 4 odd metres to go... And finally welded together the pipework for the exhaust side of the turbo, had to do a bit of make shift forging with a couple of butane blow torches heating and hammering the 3" pipe into a rectangle shape so it would fit the flange and still be round enough to weld other bits to. Came out alright if I don't say so myself
