    You have to set them up correctly otherwise you can have issues. Need to make sure it's not on an angle so it binds and they need to have 2mm of preload otherwise bleeds off boost.

    The key is to buy the good ones also and not China ripoffs

    Can't remember chuck, just cheap so I clicked and bought

    Another busy afternoon. Replaced those missing nuts and stud on turbo. Then fitted up the catback exhaust, I cut off the front section as I need to swing it to the drivers side. Needed a bit of chopping to fit and maybe a bit more.

    Finished off the transmission mount and made sure it was centred in the tunnel, height wise isn't 100% finished as I need to see where the tailshaft sits.

    Also mounted the powersteering rack and the lines. Fits up fine to Barra side. Might need to move it over as taking up dump space. That and probably ovalising the 3.5 dump. Also almost done the transcooler lines, all cut and just ready to flange the Barra side, then done

    Nice progress.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    BOC TIG's go alright. I've had my 200ACDC SmoothArc for many years. Trusty steed, never let me down yet.

    Yanked the diff tonight to drop off for torque lock/bearings and LCA bushes.

    Also got some cooler piping so finished the cold side of intercooler and also airbox. Put front bar to see if piping is out of the way and it is.

    Need to sort some gas for the tig and start welding up exhaust and one cooler pipe. Also swap inlet and outlet of new alloy radiator

    Then hopefully attack the wiring. Well still waiting for ba manual

    China rad arrived, fits fine and much larger than the V6 one. Just need to chop the inlet and outlet, swap them over, up and down
