but had an issue with one of the intercooler pipes blowing off just after i had the 3" mandrel bent exhaust fitted. I limped her home and fixed it
but now a couple of days later she has developed a misfire.
I say you're right Mark.
She would have gone rich real quick when the cooler hose blew off.
Do you still run the screen infront of the afm? As mounting the pod on it like that can cause uneven flow across the sensor.
We used to run the afm on the pressure side of the turbo after the intercooler for that reason.
Another tip if your going to use worm drive cooler pipe clamps over T-bolt clamps, apparently hair spray on the inside of the silicone hose makes them slip on good, but then sets and makes them hard to get off again.
I've got a funny story about testing out a VL turbo 'trailer' car one day. Blowing a cooler hose, bonnet catch broke, limping the car home when on the last stretch of road a car full of police detectives drives past and notices my lack of number plates
That was an expensive exercise.
Also, how are you controlling boost (wastegate etc) and where are you getting the boost feed from for the controller.
