    Just decided to give it some love seeing as I'm half way there. . . Plus don't think I've spent enough on the thing for a few months . . .

    For anyone interested in getting the Borgwarner, I helped Rossco rotate the compressor and central alignment for his manifold today.

    For a direct down compressor outlet app the wastegate was absolutely spot on to snug fit beside the recirculation valve.

    Like 2mm gap thankgod!

    I've never seen or obviously set up one like that but was perfect!

    Yeah looks pretty good now all set up to mount up to the old dts manifold and safari front mount intercooler. Pretty lucky with everything seems to fit perfect. Reckon if we didn't have the outlet facing down would be getting very close to the block with the compressor side where it bulges out as dts doesn't have much angle facing out in the flange compared to the factory turbo manifold at least.

    Got all fittings from Pirtek just need a couple of crush washers and 4" to 2.5" silicone elbow to go from airbox to turbo.

    Drop the head off on Monday to Omar from go2 engines see what he thinks. . .

    How's this thing going? Any more updates? Cleanest GQ I think I've ever seen.

    Oh yeah so. . . Had been meaning to give a bit of an update with the old thing but been kinda flat chat with things lately it's been crazy . .

    So I ended up getting a little bit carried away with the motor and after pulling the head and and doing some cleaning of the block found a bit of carbon scoring in the bores (only a couple). Did a leak down test using some 2 stroke held fluid pretty well but one thing led to another and pulled the motor down for a strip and rebuild. Taken a while but should be ready to pick up tomorrow hopefully. Think I figured that while I'm here do the head, then thought half way there to do the bottom end too, plus kays were getting towards 400 and keen on doing some big trips in the future so will be good peace of mind knowing its all fresh. Keen as to get it going, has been balanced so hopefully is a bit smoother than before.

    Everything is ready to go back together now, had to repair a couple of threads in the bell housing from when my mate just smashed a couple of bolts in with the rattle gun. (grrrrrrr )

    Anyway should be up & running by easter then get some kays on it before a tune hang'n to get back into it TBH.
