  1. Thanks mate, and yes v power, I honestly weren’t expecting it the car still had teething issues but I saw my arse with the car and thought this is literally make or break 😂 had numerous issues on the dyno and romain wasn’t best pleased but with only some minor tweaks he managed to turn the session around and start pumping some life into her. He seemed keen for me to sort the last few niggles and come back and get her turned up some more so might see what next year brings😂
  2. 4 years later… build complete. few niggles but she cracked the goal I had in my head since I started which was 300 at the wheels and we finished off with 305whp 274wft-lbs nice graph also for an old td05 coming onto boost relatively early anybody who has had any form of input on this build no matter how small I can’t thank you all enough.
  3. cheers mate look forward to seeing it! https://youtube.com/shorts/Snqe8_-9bN0?feature=share or YouTube ‘Maz Broon’
  4. Finally after pretty much 3 years, I finally get to drive this thing again! still on a basemap tuned to suit gate pressure 0.8/9 bar, 5k safe rev limiter still until I do a few more hundred miles bedding the motor in but it feels so good to be back advans straight on and time to clock up some miles.
  5. So bit of an update pretty much ironed all the creases out and motor is almost bedded in. Been doing some gentle boosting today and loading up on the dyno to finalise the basemap off and she’s coming onto boost earlier than expected. Can’t wait to go for full power on this thing. IMG_2605.MP4
  6. hi guys getting irregular fuel pressure readings on idle, fitted brand new sytec adjustable fpr and brand new 340lph pump from TD, car has ID 1050cc injectors and is on a haltech ecu. fpr set to 2.3 bar and one minute it reads 3bar next can be reading 1bar. sometimes car wont even start. anybody had anything similar? cheers
  7. Cheers bud, I’ll get sommet sorted. Thankyou 👍🏼
  8. Cheers mate I’ve even been told to just spot weld the banjo bolt sealed, then drill a 1.5mm hole in it as it could have the same effect. don’t suppose you had any smoke prior to attempting this did you? Did doing this make any noticeable difference ? Cheers
  9. Hi guys, sorry if this has been covered before but I’ve got a GReddy TD05 18g, Recently started my fresh 5e build with this turbo fitted that’s just been rebuilt by midland turbo. upon startup there is a constant stream of white smoke, led me to believe headgasket but compression test results come back bang on and now the mapper is pointing to the turbo which makes sense as the white smoke does smell strongly of oil. now I’m getting mixed answers. some telling me that journal bearing turbos do not need restrictors what so ever, some may need one, some come with t
  10. Thankyou mate it was, teething problems means unfortunately she didn’t run for very long but we will get there
  11. BIG UPDATE SHE RUNS! IMG_1975.MP4 Absolutely over the moon, for the past 3 weeks or so I’ve been stuck with not getting a spark, trying various dizzy’s and different dizzy wire layouts I could never get spark, a good crank signal and a good cam signal all at once. Crank signal was good from the start, cam sensor was too intermittent, and I’d only get a spark by spinning the dizzy by hand 🤨. after countless hours with Rob from racecal on the laptop via teamviewer we never made proper progress. And with changing the dizzy that many times I broke the plug. So it was call
  12. It’s going to racecal mate don’t think I’d go elsewhere now.
  13. Still here chipping away, cars had lots of wiring done, ecu can now be read on the laptop and the car turns over and builds oil pressure relatively quick🤞🏽. All it needs is tps adjusting and a quick double check then she’ll run. Managed to hook the hosepipe up to pressure test coolant system, leaked like a sieve at first but managed to stop them. Left to run for 2 hours under quite a substantial amount of pressure and not a drop leaked🤣 ghetto but works. Also got a pillar pod with a wideband, oil pressure and oil temp. and another setback was car needed new win
