Most likely a deposit from a bin chicken passing overhead. I’ll go out and scrub it with acetone and a nail brush. :shock:

Managed to design and machine up a few more bits and pieces. Made a little vacuum block (still needs welding) to supply the two extra map sensors. The BOV line will feed into it and exit out to the side. Ive done it that way to keep it as flush to the rear of the manifold.
Also started to design a turbo heat shield which wraps around a bit better. Will have it ceramic coated once its finished. Though not sure of the longevity of cardboard.

Very neat work as always.

Is any of that stuff experimental catch can / PCV lines restrictions, or is it too early days for that?

The cardboard one would be lighter for better performance. You could brush it with oil so any rainwater just beads off it. What's the worst that could happen really?

:lol: I like the oil idea but can't help thinking aluminium foil would be better ( could add a frypan on top for a hard earned meal after a drive ) - if there's a group buy on the horizon then count me in
Ps nice work as always Tobyo

Nice work mate. Will the heat shield fit various turbos?

I’ve been researching this fabulous material called asbestos. Has the most versitile heat resistant properties. Really hard to find in the stores, but I can get heaps from China.
Will blend it up and mix it in with papier-mâché to form the ultimate composite.

The heat shield is based on the OEM bolt locations and dimensions which i can guarantee will fit the TD04, VF52 and Blouch 1.5.

I haven't started machining the restrictors for the catch cans yet, but will get onto them soon. I just noticed my F-piece has a crack along the top of the mold parting line. Glad I made the aluminum T-Piece, as Im certain the factory one will tear when being removed.

Finally sorted out how to mount the Pierburg 3-Port. Will cut it out of stainless and bolt it down.

One of the smaller details that really had my OPD (Obsessive Perfection Disorder) :lol: ticking over, was the different hose diameters between the Pierburg and factory boost controller. The intake return, waste gate and turbo line were all varying sizes and needed reducers to go from 4mm to 3mm. The line from the compressor to the solenoid was the only one I could get away with using a 4mm hose for the whole length.
The intake return is 3mm (2.8mm exactly) on the Solenoid, but the intake pipe has a 9mm diameter fitting :shock:
So I made a press fit insert to go into the silicone intake with a 4mm diameter barbed fitting. I’ll run a 3mm hose from the pierburg to another reducer which will step up to the 4mm. I feel the 3mm hose might be slightly restrictive, hence stepping up to 4mm.
I bought the thick walled Turbosmart silicon vacuum line which should last till the next nuclear winter.

Your OPD never ceases to amaze :) Good work!
