Oil catch can is finished, turbo will be mounted this week then final hose stuff and custom dash next week. I'm starting to write up a base map for startup.

Today got long nose 1000cc injectors and ordered a twin plate clutch from the states so I will sell my unused Exedy 6 puck and Findenza flywheel and my old 540cc injectors. So let me know if you are interested.

DD Performance made 600 wheel HP on 14 psi so hopefully I'll get similar results with a few more psi given my turbo is a little smaller.

Getting really close to the end now.

Some things that were done last week:
- Heat sleeved all the cabling and pipes that are close to any heat source.
- Completed the piping from headers to turbo and fitted the turbo.
- Started to move all the fuel lines and filter etc to the other side of the engine away from the turbo.
- Write a base map for startup.
- Purchased Yokohama AD08r's 235 rear and 215 front

Remaining things:
- Connect the tubing for the intercooler heat exchanger to the water tank and connect the water pump.
- Power coat all the alloy parts silver or black to match the theme.
- Finish the fuel setup.
- Install twin plate custom clutch, and Quaife LSD.
- Reconnect everything and startup test.
- Tune.
- Odd and ends.
- Cut and polish.

Also would really like to order the GReddy three piece bodykit but that is probably a little bit too expensive for me.

Very cool build sir!
How's the intake manifold gonna be at handling boost?

Also with your turbo facing that way I thought you'd go for a nasty side vent exit exhaust :twisted: :lol:

Thank you very much, I know my car isn't everyones cup of tea but I'm trying to keep the outside as stock as possible.

Haha that would be really amazing! But maybe a bit loud as I still want to sometimes drive to work on a nice day.

Here is a better view of the setup to to turbo.

Thanks Michael, just looking forward to going on cruises with you all.

Decided to paint all the alloy in a dark grey.
