    No gauge!!!!!!!!

    First rule of owning a turbo, fit a gauge!

    Can do it other ways, hell you might even have a boost leak like me :p

    Yeah it's bedding in nicely tbh, Doesn't half howl when you floor it, but cruising throttle is fine.
    lol yeah downpipes are a joke!!
    Maybe if i was going stage 2 I'm in no rush though that might wait till next year.

    Manifold splits
    Wouldn't have been long till it was full circle.
    My mechanic said some bolts were loose, gasket between turbo/manifold leaking.
    Also it wasn't all as it should be under there, by the previous owner over 3 1/2 years ago!! but it is now :D

    Wife is cynical as it all started after we had the 2 1/2" system fitted, women eh ;)

    Some pics for your pleasure

    EDIT also thanks to Pete for the manifold :D

    Pete, if you shine a torch into the chamber and block where the turbo bolts on, you can see the light right through.
    Told you it was loud ;)
