Oooer! Just keep an eye on the turbo drain line. Those braided hoses don't like hose clamps haha. I had a couple of hose clamps (temporarily) holding the braided lines to my transmission cooler, they didn't hold up too long and leaked ATF everywhere!

Really? If it was my own car (and after my trans cooler experience) i will never use clamps on braided lines again haha. You might be better off getting a lump of that fire-proof, high temperature, high pressure, bells and whistles rubber hose.

By the way, the rest of the setup looks mint, great work! :D

That's a tidy set up. Great work. Did you alter the compression ratio? And, are you going to improve the brakes?

the turbo is a Garret TO4e supplied with the snort stage 2 kit.

the engine is standard tickford unit, no alterations, am looking into upgrading the rotors front and rear with slotted jobs, as i need new ones anyways..
