Ja i know what happened to your ride...:thumright:

Tuner 2 should have done the neccessary logs to see what was happening and if it wasn't 100% then he should have walked away. :thumleft:

i heard that with chip upgrades, most of the time, the boost pipes leak cause they can take the pressure, true story?

Some pics I took of the motor being assembled

Seeing as I use the car daily I thought it would be nice to have 3 different maps, cos during the week I spend alot of time in traffic and the lady is already heavy on juice, below is the GIAC handheld controller, I must still order it but it has 3 modes, stock, pump and race mode :twisted:

Motor finally back in the car, reason for losing some time was due to some problems encountered while fitting the turbo, problem has been solved :thumleft: if all goes well turbo will be fitted tomorrow and the rest of the parts and we hope to start her up Saturday :cheers: , the car wont be boosting high as I have to drive her in for 1000 km's but ive already have a couple of routes planned so that I can do it in 1 week, after that the car will then be tuned again.

Update: Slight delay, waiting for another intercooler, tuning started today.

On the dyno :D
Image

Until the GIAC controller arrives to save the 3 maps the car will have the 1.5 bar boost file on that will be good for 280 kW, when the controller arrives the race map will be loaded onto it which boosts 1.8 bar :twisted: which I will only load for special occasions such as dyno days as this was the main reason for the build so who knows I might even hit the 300 kW mark at Dynotech as there is a 10 kW difference between Racetech dyno (which I use) and Dynotech.

Some updates: Decided to buy the V-maxx coilovers, they are only height adjustable, also bought a BSH catch can, decided to take the 19" BBS wheels but that will only be on the car in a week or two, below some pics.

My coilovers look similar to these
