Well, Yesterday after gettin bk from war the day before!, me and Gnasher decided to change our intercoolers! I had a lovely upgrade to a nice Courtenay FMIC and he had the stnd one put bk on!
Got there bout 1000 and straight off to a flyin start, bearing in mind when i do something it always goes wrong! Bumpers off... mine came straight off, Gnasher's bolts seized and we had to 'manipulate' it out of the drivers side!
Anyways, bits started comin off left right and centre with no other probs except we decided half way thru that while all the gear is off, we should do the Precat at the same time! The bolts were rusted stoopidly! Gnasher had a go with a spanner and a hammer ... only snapped the bolt! and and
OOOOooo almost forgot, thanx to Gnasher's mrs, Mrs Gnasher, for the sarnies, jaffa cakes, pepsi max and oxo cube in hot water
Get on with the IC we said so go all his fitted and then got all pipes fitted except the IC and as always the great british weather decided to pi55 it down! only a quick shower then bk on with it.
So we got it all fitted and decided to get on with the prob of the Precat, basically me lying under the car and only snapped off the other two bolts with use of jus a 13mm rachet and my man mountain arms! So off we pop to an exhaust place for some bolts, got out of Gnasher's estate, onto the dual carriageway, onto boost and off pops his pipe off the turbo! the numpty said "yeah that aint comin off" , so limped home, got his mrs' linea rossa and got the bolts. Fitted the precat, nice so got on bumper! ... Jus the screws to secure it .... TERRENTIAL RAIN!!! it wasnt gonna stop so we were fitted all the screws, lieing in the puddles gettin it done!
Anyways, i had a quick blat on the way bk as a test and the GSi seems faster in 3rd and 4th! cant wait to get it on a RR to see the power out put! Spark plugs then CS2 here i come!
here we go
Gnasher stubbed his finger ... yeah on the first screw!
had to stop for the rain!
Gnasher's car 'put bk together'
Hangin on Precat
With and without GSi grill, i dont know which one i like!
