    thanks for the nice comments, its made from 1mm ns4 aluminium which is very hard yet light, get it free from work [ordered some extra sheets in for a job as you do ] next job is to join the front to the back just working out a heat vent for the gearbox and dif through the boot, the exhaust will be lagged

    sounds good and looks nice n professional... just don't close the exhaust in too tightly, as my mate was working for a carbon company and they made a prototype diffuser that was a little too close for a porsche turbo and it kinda had a minor case of terminal fire ...maybe carry the ducting from the gearbox etc around the exhaust too?

    im making a 'cup' to enclose the bottom of the exhaust leaving an air gap to aid air flow, and it will be lagged with 25mm thick superwool [ceramic] also im a sheetmetal worker by trade

    fitted a egt probe boss for the vems and it gave me a good reason to remove my old exhaust wrap and check for cracks on my diy topmount and found none


    just starting the re-wrap in blue to match my samco's

    That manifold looks just like mine, although the turbo might be a bit higher

    Great work so far buddy. Just a suggestion but will you support the turbo any further like the YB cosworth peeps do (supports from the cam cover) ?

    the small 13Lpm pump just pumps around the engine/matrix the secound big pump operates off a thermo-couple fitted into the rad feed pipe from the rhs of the head [funny shaped casting which has the turbo water pipe fitted to it]
    and has a digital adjustable controler
