    Turbosmart's OPR T40 Turbo Oil Pressure Regulator

    Found the best spot for this install - it really is a tiny little device!
    (Oil and water lines being worked out today for the GTW3476..)

    Turbosmart blurb:
    "Revealed at SEMA 2016 in Las Vegas, Turbosmart’s new OPR T40 is an oil pressure regulation system for your turbocharger. It helps prevent compressor or turbine stage oil leaking or smoking, and takes the guesswork out of oil restrictor sizing for more efficient and effective oil delivery.

    Providing an aftermarket turbocharger with the ideal oil pressure has always been a challenge. Traditionally, the turbocharger's oil feed has relied on a restrictor system, which can be difficult to set up correctly, and are often the cause of turbo seal leakage and blow-by.


    Turbosmart's Turbo Oil Regulator ensures the oil pressure going to the turbocharger never exceeds 40PSI, regardless of engine oil pressure. The result is an oil delivery system that is more reliable, easier to set up and less prone to leaks than a standard restrictor system, reducing blow-by and seal leakage".

    Turbosmart External WG45

    Purchased WG today after some deliberation. The 38mm WG was going to be recycled from the previous build but I don't think it would have been up to the job. Easier to step up now than have to modify the exhaust manifold and re ceramic it.

    Still a construction site! welding, finishing, ceramic coating and cosmetic work still ahead..

    Skoda's New Bonnet Vents

    Ford Focus RS mk2 style - spent a long while looking for vents and the possibility of a carbonfibre bonnet but settled for these.
    Seems to be popular solution..

    Not sure how effective they will be but hoping for some airflow to keep things a bit cooler while on the move.
    At least it should allow some convective flow from the engine bay at the end of some hot laps! :-)

    Placement was chosen to avoid any of the bonnet bracing.
    To be fitted this weekend.
