You know the snappiness might actually be coming from the colder air too.
Where is your IAT sensor located?


true.. IAT is in the stock ford location in the lower intake on the LHS.

well either way, always been happy with how it performs as is. Just love the tweaking when, where and if required. I think the driving is just a by-product of the tweaking. I love just being in my garage and doing something especially late at night just before midnight while everyone is tucked away and im dropping spanners and swearing or talking to myself.

Yeah I was doing that last night. Did a fairly nice job of hooking up the front section of the battery cable if I do say so myself.
If I get the earth sorted today I can actually start the car again yay. Radiator has passed through customs.

Ok.. like hybrid and cage, a small update.

Last piece of the puzzle is my new discharge pipe and bov i got for my bday.

Here is the old factory bosch (25mm) compared to the new 50mm


Thanks to my ol mate who supplied the pipe i traced my flange and cut her open. Filed her nice and smooth ready for attaching.






While hybrid was welding his fancy radiator pipes he kindly jesus welded my flange


I positioned the hole so it can be mounted in many positions comfortably

Installed!



Works real well. Very responsive operation and from what the logs are telling me im seeing boost alot sooner.. may or maynot have had a leak in this area. Either way works well. Geeze these paxton/vortechs push alot of air!!

Today ill update the vacuum line to suit and im good.

Next update my alternator fusable link to suit my alternator and what im generating..

Nice work as usual, no need to brag about your prowess on the bedroom though. Snigger

Engine bay is very nice. When are you going to throw an intercooler into the mix

We don't talk about intercoolers Snigger

They are painted..rustic orange..

To be honest im avoiding touching them.. kerry went to a lot of effort to sort out the alignment on my hood so i dont want to take them off to paint incase when they go back on something goes screwy.
