    Wife and son went to a kiddy do today. Car time!

    Managed to fit the brakes.

    The brakes to be fitted, HEL lines fitted.


    Stock brakes, with AF billet spacers (soon to come off)


    Opps caliper fell off..


    Oh there it is next to the TT caliper.


    Had to use a puller on this disc to get it off


    All ready for new setup


    Had to cut some shielding off to fit the new discs and TT calipers.


    New disc on


    New Caliper on


    New Remsa pads installed and locked.


    Fuck yes.


    Time to bleed the brakes with the power bleeder, which kicks arse!


    No issues with the stock shitty wheel, comes close to some balance leads on the inner barrel though.


    I also fitted HEL lines to the rear too. Took it for a drive but had to bleed it a 2nd time. After that time.. farking hell! Those shit tyres are really letting it down. Thankfully Rob is hooking me up some RSRs for the new wheels. Pedal feel is like brail and strong. Very happy.

    Thanks guys. Still waiting for my new wheels to show up. Getting some RSRs from Rob to go on them.

    Need to convince the wife that finishing the conversion will help in getting a house sooner..

    Got wheels today!

    Will try and get to Rob's tomorrow to fit the rubber.

    Specs are front 18x8.5 +40 and rear 18x9.5 +45. Would have loved 9" look on the front but they just don't clear the brakes.

    Fronts


    Rears


    Rings in place


    Fuck yeah!


    Getting close!


    Mega flush brah!

    Business case. These are also lighter than stock. The stock fronts are 19.9kg with tyre, the bigger and wider Enkei's are 19.5 with tyre. Safety first.

    Looks great! The staggered wheels look good with the big front brakes. The front brakes also came up a treat

    So thought I'd do alittle go instead of show.

    Took my cheap arse turbo and manifold around to RZ's place. I had a issue where I have a T4 exhaust manifold with a T3 turbo housing. I did get an adapter/converter thing but that ending up putting the turbo into the next postcode due to the manifold design. So I asked RZ to help me. Ended up he tapped new bolt holes into the manifold for the T3 bolt pattern. Works a treat.

    However, that left a bit of a right angle step inside the manifold as it went from T4 outlet to the T3 inlet of the turbo. So plan was to remove some of the T3 housing so it flows better into it from the T4 manifold.

    I had to open up the wastegate hole anyway as it wasn't the biggest and didn't port match the wastegate as all.

    As you can see.

    This is the turbo exhaust housing with the gasket template marked out.

    I know the gap between the inside and out is alittle thin but I think it should be ok.

    So, why does finished have "? Well I fucked up, used the wrong side of the gasket as the template so the hole is now offset. Yep, clear fuckup but this is where I'm glad I get a cheap noodle turbo. New exhaust housing for it is $99. So will order another I think and give it another crack.

    Was the turbo made from cheese hence easy to port?

    Cast cheese yes! The shit gets everywhere. The wife thought I smelt of blood when I got home. Had a shower and I think I rusted.

    I saw this in the flesh yesterday. The wheels are absolutely spot on size wise. I have serious wheel envy.

    If you can be assed, I made my own out of a cheap as Bunnings weed sprayer, a piece of 10mm ally plate and some neoprene sheet and a couple of bolts. Agree only way to go doing brakes on your own.

    Car looks ace mate, wheels are perfect.
