Not today but earlier this week. Too much Gin + eBay is not a great mix.

New turbo core fitted, turbo assembly fitted, turbo primed, all rebuilt.
Scariest restart of a car ever.
Still made a damn racket
Sit and pondered life lots...
Saturday I took the turbo out to check it was ok, it is thankfully.

I then decided to hunt this sodding boost leak down with gusto.
I took the intercooler out, both boost hoses and the EGR valve off, and built this

Now, MDF can only take 20PSI on its surface before it leaks out to the sides :lol: Added a bit of palstic and all was well enough to get the system to 35psi and saw this
Image
Cant tell you how happy I am to see a leak!!!!! new seal on order, rig kept in tact so that the new one can be tested prior to install.
That is amazing! Well done!

Had time to rebuild the car at the weekend.

No more boost leak!!! whistle gone :D
Only mild concern is it appear to have chatter/surge when lifting off :S
