    Ooo nice choice mate.

    Are you going to activate on ignition or have a manual switch?

    Oh OK cool. 👍

    I've seen some setups on a timer, so the accumulator pressurises the oil system for 5 seconds or so before start.

    I'm keen to see how your setup works. 😀

    Had to take a rest from the build for a while!
    Things starting to happen again. Mitch had a major rethink about locating the accumulator. Now going in engine bay in front of gearbox and lowdown.. pictures of that to follow later when installed.

    These switches being wired this week;

    Modded Spulen Oil Breather Plate

    Lines for the Spulen wouldn't clear the fuel rail, the ports were chopped and refitted at about 20 degrees

    Boost Creep fix 45mm to 50mm EW

    Skoda build was completed last week. Road testing/tuning revealed only one issue - boost creep. After exhaustive analysis and consultation the problem pointed to the wastegate being too small. To test the theory without having to rebuild the manifold a borrowed 50mm wastegate was installed with a custom designed 45 to 50mm stainless adapter. Tested last night and it works perfectly :-) . The wastegate pipe is now being modified to suit.

    45mm EW


    Custom designed/machined adapter flange 45 to 50mm
