Perseverance ... Or just too poor to get it finished quickly haha.


Yeah its already quite unique due to the design I've went for, not only thinking about a neat set up but making sure the flow is going to be smooth and short from the turbo :)

Hopefully the new colour will set the car off and give it a completely new look :)

God damn !
Wrong threads, and i wouldnt have fit on thanks to the compressor housing.. And im not taking it off just to fit it lol

Image

Honestly, ive spent more money than what the turbo cost just to get all the fittings.. And now ive just had to order an m14 to an6 straight and an an-6 to an-6 adapter to bring it out past the housing and to give it more clearance as its going to be too tight if it was to screw right in

Image


But it does look like the water lines I got fit perfectly, good job i bought the longer banjo eye for the bottom of the rad :)


Image


Also made an attempt of temporally holding the ic in place by hanging it on rope untill i can get someone out to weld brackets up, which helped me get the pipes on etc.. Sitting squity just now but nothing i can do untill i get it mounted solid :)



Image

Started to rain so had to call it day at this point, once the other bits come i can hopfully get it fired up !

Figuring out fiddly bits like that is a total pita. Trying to suss out the drain arrangement for my wash tank is being incredibly difficult!

Yep ! Total pita indeed lol.
Its anoying tring to figure out the thread pitches etc, ive had to do some backward research and then a lucky guess on the radiator banjo.

Hopfully the bits i bought for the water return on the turbo will extend enough to get a tight fit without being to close to anything :)

What trouble are you having with yours ?
