Pretty decent power curve, you got a pretty flat power and toque curve between 5700 and 7000.

Cleaned air flow meter, cleaned air filter. Tightened up all hose clamps etc....

 

Also polished stock black hot pipe, now a nice silver to match the rest of the piping.

 

Still waiting to fit rosejoints

Can hear/smell an exhaust leak from the engine block>exhaust manifold gasket. Effecting boost and response a bit. Will have to wait till the weekend.

Put the gasket in.

Factory solid lines to the turbo are hell to put back on. I recommend everyone go braided lines, I will be in the future.

 

Unfortunately a stud pulled out with a nut. So i got the stud back in using two nuts locked together, however the nut on top has stripped itself and will not come off grrrr

 

Been so close to finishing the job then some little thing goes wrong and stuffs it all up.

Gives me time to order some new gaskets and other bits and pieces.

Where you get the black intercooler piping from? Can you get this for a blitz fmic? Nice ride btw. YELLOW is the best in the s15 imo.

Wouldn't it just flake off aluminum? My pipes are aluminium.

it isnt the most resilient paint, I think once the paint gets hot it sets much better, at least with the stuff I bought.

A good paint job is all about preparation, get some wet/dry sandpaper for metal and get it all nice and even, start with like 300grit then move to 600. Then clean with mineral turps.

Braided turbo lines :D

Got my manifold off, found the real problem which was a cracked dump pipe, the turbo>dump pipe studs and bolts are pretty shitty and the turbo>dump gasket was about to give so ordered a GKtech dump pipe which comes with new gaskets and studs.

 

Tried fitting the lines to the turbo, insanely easy to put on compared to solid lines, took me 5 hours to get them on only to have coolant leak out.

Recommend braided lines for everyone

You may as well whack on a bigger turbo now since your t28 is off anyway? :D

 

Btw was it hard to get ur turbo off? I'm looking at removing mine in the next couple of weeks. I looked in the manual but it seems a little vague. How long does it take? What tools do you need? Do you need to drain the coolant like it says in the manual? That would be a pain in the ass.

 

Sorry for all the questions. Just trying to gather all the info i can get :D
