thought i would do a bit of a up date.

I fitted a new K&N filter with a cold air feed from the bumper, and a 6 speed conversion

Just had around 3.5 hours slog at wrapping the manifold. not to bad i think, its the first time i have wrapped one in about 4 or so years.

some pics are with the flash, so they look a little different.

first 2 pipes


the last 2


all most finished, as need to lock wire it all now. but the wrap is on so the hard part is out of the way!

next on the list of things to do, was to use the DEI turbo insulation kit.

I have the dei kit, and some dei heat tape.


I first used some magma exhaust wrap on the turbo elbow where it joins onto the down pipe, and the tan mat is from the dei turbo kit. I use some stainless locking wire to help hold it in place.




next was to stich the outer section of the kit with stainless cable ties. i also used a little heat tape on the edges to help them from coming undone.


the finished shot




all in all, i think it has worked well, and it covers more of the hot bits than a off the shelf turbo blanket would on this turbo.
