Went over to Drews today with intention of fitting my FMIC and helping him remove his head
We attacked my bus first. Proved to be about as complex as I thought it would be to be honest... some chopping and a bit of creative fabrication required
The Star Silver Brothers...
Making a start...
Right, first thing was to get everything out of the way... leaky intercooler included.
Fabbing the brackets to hang the IC off the crash bar and secure the aircon rad...
FMIC in place. Now to figure out the pipework!
It became apparent that there was no way the pipe to the throttle body was reaching the intercooler without a bit of chopping. So out came the airsaw
And there we go
"Err, why won't the bonnet close??"
"Hang on, I'll pull the bonnet release..."
"Oh! That worked!"
The finished article. Completely stealth apart from the shiny pipe behind the grill. Hmm, might have to fix that
