    also got a chance to pay a bit of attention to the intercooler piping, and cut stuff properly to size. 3" hose/pipe isnt small, and im not exactly blessed with space here! pretty happy with the way it all lines up though. nice short run from the compressor outlet to the throttle over all.

    W2A core fittings are 3", so post cooler piping is all 76mm stepped down to 70mm with a silicone reducer immediately before the throttle body

    Ive got an 80x26 oval section in my sights. Ive ordered a regular 63mm 45deg bend for now, and see how it fits, but the oval is there as plan B

    the 'wobbly' oulet fitting in the fuel filter has been weighing on my mind. Internet says this is pretty common, but theres also stories of the things leaking and spraying fuel... something id like to avoid from an 044 on full noise. so bought a slightly different fitting with a longer shaft that seats on the internal orings. checked the position and conditions of the o-rings in the filter (which is new) and everythings Looks as it should. gut feeling reckons the new Fitting is more stable, but it still has a bit of play. not really sure theres much more i can do, just suck it and see.



    also started tacking the exhaust together. somehow teh HF Start on my welder seems to have died? nee to scratch start a TIG - which sucks. at least im only tacking at present.

    3.5" OEM Dump Pipe - not bad for a factory config on a relatively small turbo!

    (edit, Jesus i need to take some pics in daylight. my eyes!)

    hopefully the lighting isnt as shit in these photos...

    3.5" dump to cat, v-banded, flex-piped. tacked ready for welding. not really much of an exhaust system to speak of!

    would just keep the compressor outlet pipe the same size till it's over the engine then try and spread the size transition to the cooler over the down-leg distance say down to a 2.5 90' and then into the 3' cooler

    did some quick BOTE maths...

    1.5mm walled 80x26mm oval has a sectional area equivalent of a 49mm OD 1.5mm walled tube (46mm ID) = 1657mm^2
    1.5mm walled 63mm pipe (60mm ID) has in comparison a sectional area of 2827mm^2

    Sunlight!

    Couple of pics of the new firewall and how clearance to the seat worked out (with my new seat brackets lowering and reclining the seat a chunk over stock)

    It's going to be so satisfying to jump in and drive it I bet. Small exhaust is a light exhaust. With these small cars its worth the effort to get the seat back and down as far as possible. And a good weekend trip to the ring once it's sorted will be in order.

    H2 Hummer Airbox is a tad bigger than expected. Not too bad, but still impressively large. Filter outlet fitting is a random 108mm - matches perfectly to my 80mm MAF and 60mm compressor inlet. lol. Need to figure how best to mount it, but for now I just want it bodgied together so itll run

    Yeah I agree...intake off the rear in all that turbulent flow might not be the best?

    That airbox does look comically large compared to the teenie weenie turbo

    Overall it's looking very purposeful ...the wheel/paint combo looks awesome.

    One option originally was maybe a side duct feed, but its too obnoxiously large for that. Like I said, not sure how to mount it now. Something neat will sort itself out

    Wont have a pic for a couple of weeks, but trust me, it wont fit even sawing off the curved duct (which will likely get chopped anyway).
