First things first i got the inlet, intercooler pipe work, and turbo stripped off her
I then went on to strip down the inlet manifold to be cleaned and painted. I stripped the throttle cable spindle out of the one throttle body.I also stripped the turbo from the exhaust manifold to inspect the exhaust housing for carcks to give me a rough idea as to wether a new turbo would be needed as supposed to a rebuild.
The turbo looked in not bad nick so ive opted for a rebuild on it
Any hows a few weeks have flown by and i haven't had much time to get any thing done as such. Ive managed to get the small vacume ports on the throttle bodies tig welded up. Those are used for the pcv which i have blanked off( just incase you dont know that). This is a bit of a trial and error situation, im pritty confident it will be ok and there will be no air leaks.
Last week i managed to find a couple of evenings to get my throttle bodies and inlet painted and built back up. I also made my self a new gasket for my idle control valve.
I made a start last night fitting the inlet back on, ive also ordered up some silicone elbows to change my intercooler pipe run. I will keep updating as work progresses! Any ideas and feed back welcome!
