Thanks mate. Cool to see the Porsche all in one spot - will be good to follow it
Looking forward to getting it in (giggity) once I can work out the best time - I'm away for the next 5 weekends so those are all out of the question, and with a potential new job starting in the first week of April with a few weeks away that pushes things back further. We'll see.
Ok, not so much, but I did receive some parts off a slow boat from China...
New reducing elbow for the 80mm TIP and a Coldside DV relocation kit as I've decided I can't be bothered to try and cram it all in on the hotside as that corner of the bay is tight. Won't look quiiiiiiiiiite so clean, but with a bit of work should do the trick.
Quick test fit (using 63mm charge pipe as I don't yet have a TIP made up...):
Initial impressions are decent. Hoses are nice and thick/stiffer than many I've used/seen before, despite costing a fraction of the usual UK prices. I'll likely cut down the DV takeoff on the relocation hose as it sits a little high (below) but that can wait until it's in the car. Excuse the fact the DV itself is in the wrong way, was only really there to hold things together!
Need to get the metalwork welded up (annoyingly I don't have the skills, which would speed things up a bit) but then it shouldn't be too long before I can think about getting it in the car. Only minor issues being I have no free weekends for the next month and potentially start a new job at the start of April with a month away from home - doh!
