Day4 progress - induction hose test fitted, inlet manifold all wired in and bolted down then got most of the rest of the bay back in and relocated the coolant overflow reservoir in a nice polished mishimoto tank and started on the 3port oil catch can plumbing. Waiting on mishimoto to deliver the intercooler hoses then can get the last few bits done and test fire her up!

I see you took your intake manifold off , how long roughly and how much of a pain in the !Removed! was it ?

Getting the old one off was a bit of a struggle as you need to unclip every single pipe and wiring connector in the engine bay and undo alot of bolts in the engine bay to get it free and even then have to wiggle it about quite a bit to get it free from any other parts. I labelled up most of the pipes and wires with a marker pen and masking tape to get it back to together correctly. p

Putting the replacement tgv delete inlet back on was a lot easier as I tidied up the wiring loom a lot before fitting and working with silicon pipes instead of the old rubber/plastic ones made it a bit easier too as the plastic oem intake pipe is just horrible. I'd say it's close to a full days work to do just the intake manifold.

I'm looking at getting tgv deletes for mine but trying to figure out if it's really worth it , but it will give me the opportunity to paint my inlet tho so not sure

Picked up something similar to that epoxy you used, but Unibond. How did you fit it back on your intake delete? Did you cut it for fitment so it sits snuggly in and then epoxy it, or did you cut it bigger and have it sitting over the hole and epoxy? If that doesn't make sense I'll see if I can show you what I mean?

I only did mine because I knew it would give me lots off access space while I was doing my other bits especially the induction pipe and that was the time change it if I ever was, in terms of performance gains I don't think there is much of a noticeable difference to see. It's kind of like one of those last things to do if you have nothing left to do or need it off for some other reason

I cut it to fit over it rather than in it as that was much easier then bonded it on

Day 5 Progress from yesterday drilled the mounting points for the 3 port catch can, secured it then connected up the 3 ports and directed the breather underneath the car, still awaiting a new intercooler hose set but got impatient and wanted to test fire up the car so built the majority back up to test and found the fuel injector by the airbox is leaking so need to see if the seals are damaged or whether it just needs reseating correctly then will check again if the car will fire up

Day8 progress: Absolutely chuffed, bar a few seized bolts on the old turbo and exhaust that I needed a hand getting off it's all my own work and it's now ready to go to Andy Forest for mapping! Over the moon it's all running ok. It's been a busy weeks work.

Picture below of it stripped out last week and the end result!

It certainly was, 345bhp is the end result which I am happy with! Completely different car to drive now, pulls very nice and smooth at a lightning pace
