    Smile new parts fitted

    well finally got my new hoses yesterday. so i thought i would put them on 2day. done all the hoses, front a rear bcs and reverted back to the oe dv.

    also i did by pass the rear bcs and put the oe on the fpr and run my boost guage from where the oe use to run 2. but i had a slight problem my guage would only read -40 hkpa when it used to be -60, so i thought i had a leak some where but i couldnt hear or see anything. any ideas?

    after all that was done took off for a little test drive. all was well till i put my foot down, well i must say that was the best sound iv herd from a turbo spoiling up. pulled over and noticed the smic hose fell off, must of not done it up enough.

    so of i went again and wow the car pulls like a train much better than having the aftermarket dv on. but i do still get a slight chatter think its the oe maybe split but cant get that dam rounded bolt out.

    picys below

    Looks good, however the hose from the AFM to cross-over pipe looks an odd shape compared to the OE & Samco hoses. Never seen one that shape before.

    i was thinking that i may have it round the wrong way. because if you look at the afm it slopes down and that hose goes has got a litle curve in it. ill have a play with that 2morrow see what happens if i switch it around
