    The life of... SharkyUK's Trophy

    This right here. This is the lie you keep telling yourself. You decided on making it a 'tad' quicker with ITB's and then that didn't go exactly to plan and you let garage A convince you to up the ante on the build. That didn't get finished and you let garage B convince you to up the ante on the...

    threaded M12 is definitely turbo oil return. AN8 is too small for that. AN8 likely a sensor - or catch can return if its set up to do that (not a good idea IMO)

    Wouldn't even bother wire brushing it, once up to temp on the car it will very quickly oxidise again.

    Rear beam favour?

    Hey guys (and girls?) I don't suppose anyone has a rear beam local to hull/brid (ish), I could grab to refurb with the pms strengthening kit and poly bushes and then give my beam in exchange? The car is my daily and so can't take that one off and don't want to end up paying Renparts £90 for...

    @NorthloopCup is really the man to comment on this I believe
  14. fake ben taylor


    Some of the benefit of the fatty and ktec setups is the longer intake runner which affects the pulse wave tuning of the engine (same as a changing trumpet length on itbs) and this is why the ktec showed gains over otherbinduction kits. The battery relocation and 'neater' setup is a shorter...
