Awesome work.

Also, I'm a big fan of these sorts of detailed picture-heavy updates that show & tell what a person did, with what bits, why, challenges faced, etc.

:thumbs:

Welcome to Club VF52 :lol:
Like what Yowie said, great to see such detailed photo's and a run through of the experience. I'm curious to know what Subaru Workshops use to loosen the spring clamp on the oil return hose.. I think it reduced my life span by a year trying to get it back on.

Well done Pete! A great job that will be worth the effort :) When is the tune planned?

Great work
Its going to be a beast once completed and tuned :)

Thanks guys, the tune is booked for this weekend! It's going to be an interesting drive to Thomastown without boosting.. :lol:

Nice one mate, finally got it on there! Interested to hear your review versus td04 once you get it tuned :thumbs:

Thanks Clay! I have driven Toby's SH with the VF52 for about 5mins; from memory, it was heaps more kick, more top end and to be honest, there wasn't that much of a difference when boost came on.

Good work mate.

Will be much better for PI, lots more top end.

Thanks Kyle. Unfortunately, looks like I won't be doing PI this year, I'm going to have a year break from racing. It would have been nice to test it out with the VF52, but I guess I would just hit speed cut earlier down the main straight haha. Next time! :thumbs:

Thanks guys! :drinks: yup, it's not all colourful rainbows and blue skies! :lol: I don't know what they do either but I used a small piece of wire and tied the spring clip open. Then using a coat hanger, I hooked it on this small piece of wire. Once the turbo was installed, the oil return line was in its hose and I was happy, I pulled the coat hanger, which pulled the piece of wire out and the spring clip closed.

The dump pipe and turbo beanie are on! I had heaps of fun getting one of the nuts on due to the wrapping making the dump a bigger diameter and the threads of the aftermarket hot side housing longer (unconfirmed).

I started her up and everything seems alright. I mentioned to Toby that the exhaust at startup was a fair bit louder with the TD04..

I'll update properly and with pictures when I'm on the laptop next time.

could you put the turbo beanie on and wrap the dump without taking everything off?

You probably can... but you'd definitely should take the TMIC off at least to make things easier. It will be tight, back sore and a bit of swearing but it's possible I reckon.

If you look at the DEI wrap installation video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sT6JnrncUSI); you'd be doing the same except on the car. That is, estimating, cut, 'priming' on the car.

I found the turbo beanie install a bit awkward - it was straight forward but if you see that photos that I will post below, there is no real cut outs for the top oil feed as I think these beanies are a 'one-size fits all' approach..

Last night after work, I re-installed the dump pipe and I installed the turbo beanie.

I let the photos do the talking first and then give my comments afterwards.

As stated in the above post, I found installing turbo beanie a bit awkward. As you can see, the top oil feed line is almost right in the middle of the turbo beanie and I found it easier to install the beanie with out the dump pipe attached. Then you have to pull back the beanie to install the bolts.

I bleed the cooling system this morning and took it for a drive around the block to see if everything was normal. There was a bit of smoke coming from the turbo area. Initially, I thought it was the usual excess WD40 burning but the burning continued after an extended amount of time. Reading through a few threads, some suggested it was the oil return hose leaking. Concerned, I jacked up the car and had a look at the oil return hose and its clamp. I played around with it using a screw driver and made sure the clamp was on properly and tight. I ran the engine until 94/95 degrees with no smoke signs. (I later came to the conclusion it was the DEI exhaust wrap smoking in its break-in period)

I went for the tune today but I forgot to tell the tuner I had installed a 1bar/14psi actuator, so the tune isn't complete and I will have to go again once he has finished adjusting the tune to accommodate the new actuator. In other words, no real boosting yet.. :lol: Nearly there!!! Can't wait!

Cheers,

Pete.
