    The 888 No Longer sneezes

    Well tonight I managed to figure out relevant piping to get the original OE dv piped back up, seems the spring is still in there as absolutley no turbo stall now it seems, the baileys is still on the boost pipe, but no longer dumps (due to it not having a vacuum line to it) car is sooo much smoother now its unbelievable.

    Jury is still out though, as only had a range of 30 mile and a driveway covered in car parts

    Shame I wont be able to scare the kids in the road anymore though

    They play chicken with me in the street, or just ignore me.... Quick tish and brown marks hit the road and kids hit the pavement.




    Could always install one of those speakers that do the dumpvalve sound? lol

    Smooth is good, just feels weird it not going tssh no more lol.


    The Baileys was connected just after the rear bcs on the connector that ordinarily goes to the OE dv, so now its back to going to the OE dv instead of the baileys.

    Luckily spring was still in the oe dv

    Worryingly, these are like 8-14 year olds, think its great to just sit at top of road (cul de sac on a hill) when they know I drive up to top turn around and back onto drive (pretty much only way I can get on without scraping to buggery!) they either skateboard towards me, or just sit IN the road :| like helloooo roads are for cars before children.

    If 888 parts werent so hard to get hold of, im sure i would of had a new front end by now lol.
