--Quick Build Update--
Sorry that ive been quiet guys... quick update and pics on the build.

-Turbo Mods-

When i bought this t25 turbo i was faced with 3 problem. one being it didn't have a vacuum nipple on the compressor housing for boost signal to waste gate, i didn't have the correct size oil return flange and finally had to sort out how im running coolant through the turbo parallel with my heater lines.

with regards to the oil return flange it was a simple fix, just drilled the original holes bigger and slotted the flange so i could use a bolt and washer to lock it down.
Image
Image

With the return flange done, i needed to grind two m14 fittings so that i could simply hose clamp normal radiator hose from a t piece fitting running inline with the car heater (bypasses heater)
Image

Now the fun part. Taping the compressor housing. using a 8mm drill bit and a 1/8npt tap you can make a threaded hole which almost any vacuum nipple you get will fit.
Image
Image

-Some Inter cooler prep-

Using a dremel or any other rotary tool you can cut away at the front grll to make space for the inter cooler and piping.... i could of cut i little less of the grill of near the sides but i went a little crazy whilst cutting. none the less im sure it will still look great when its all in. I had to cut away at a part of the front impact bar to make the intercooler fit snug.

Build is coming along. dont expect project to be 100% done till July.. doing it bit by bit as i can but im sure it will be done before august. will upload more info and pics as build progresses as always

-Some random build pics-
Image
Image
I needed to cut an old induction pipe so that i can connect it inline with a oil catch tank to where the positive crank valve would be to drawer constant vacuum from connecting it to the pre compressor side of turbo. the oil catch tank should do a decent job at preventing oil from hitting the compressor blades and doing possible damage, whilst keeping my car emissions friendly

Had time to do my intercooler piping this Saturday, Was pretty basic..i used silicon hose primarily. you will need 8x 90degree 50mm bends, 1x45degree 50mm a bend, 1meter straight silicon pipe, numerous connectors and hose clamps, realized i need a 30cm straight aluminum pipe, to connect the BOV t piece to the intercooler bends so it passes the radiator hose.

To cut the silicon i found the best and simplest DIY way is just placing a hose clamp on the pipe where you have measured for your desired cut, tighten the clamp and run a Stanley blade along the hose clamp for a smooth finish.

Image

The intercooler itself fits very snug once you have cut away the grill as i have, it does not require you to remove the front bumper to mount the intecooler, just angle it and press it in. i find installing the pipes onto the cooler to be easier than trying to put them on once the cooler is mounted in place
Image
This is how the intercooler bends look wen its not on the car
Image

Space is a bit tight as the turbo will be behind the engine in the most common setup, with the charge pipes coming over the engine/cam pulleys and down next to the alternator, it requires one aircon pipe to be bent out of the way, it will not break as long as you dont over bend it, just enough for silicon pipes to pass.

As always ill keep uploading updates as build progresses.
