I like that, different engine choice and I like the side stripes

One question, on the intake side the duel pipe in red, is that to a different intake setup like a bypass or something?

That's just a Y splitter going to the intercooler. The BOV is attached too it also.

Cool that you stil have it and keep on improving it!

Did you fit low compression pistons for the turbo? And how much boost are you running?

No, compression is 10.5:1 and running 0.9BAR right now but can run upto 1.5BAR.

I would expect that compression ratio to be much too high to run with that much boost. There's no knock at 1.5 bar either?

No knock at all in fact 10.5:1 is a bit on the low side compression wise. 12 would have been better 😀

Nice car. The size of that turbo I thought you would have a load of boost.

Doesn't mean you HAVE to use all of it it's rated for upto 2BAR but I'm pretty sure the head bolts wouldn't like it much though!!!
