First of all a 50mm dump valve by turbosmart


Also a turbosmart boost controller to suit


also in the next two weeks the engine is getting built with 86.5 pistons

Yo yo yo they call me chris JD,

I build cars for my turbo frog,

The turbo i run is the size of your face,
and still i get people who want a race!
Anyway, right now i gotta dash,

manifold is done, bit more mock up too.



also getting rid of the grill, gonna try and duct air to the cooler, and also gonna chop out the steering oil cooler and put a lil square cooler behind the offside fog light area, ducted too. and gonna try n put a 19 row engine oil cooler behind the other fog light area also ducted, then the horns will be relocated.
so this is how the front looks atm.

What size did you end up going for with the thermostat outlet?

I'd still be interested in one of those, as I'd prefer a larger diameter than the 32mm 205 outlet that's used with the bbm adaptor.

Bit of an update. the engine is still at lynx. not totally finished the exhaust manifold yet as i think i'm going with a v-band turbo with a 38mm wastegate so the elbo may need re desinging but the collector is staying as is. the inlet manifold is totally smooth now, better than the pic above. The aorbag circuit has been fully removed too. dash is out ready for flocking after i have paid for my engine and thats it!!!

Why does it tickle you? We were thinking about putting it where the down pipe meets the manifold but this is the quickest an easiest option plus i think it looks awesome.

Theres a few big power Zetec Fiesta turbos that have the turbo mounted over the gearbox, again, for packaging reasons, plus it makes the turbo a doddle to change!

Looks great, good to see folks doing different things.
