Yes, this part number came from a volvo/deutz excavator. Turbine housing looks nice for our purposes: (still will give the HX40 a try though)

Part No:


Angle α (Compressor Housing): 21
Angle (Turbine Housing): 356
Back Plate: 167744 (166537)(1253200300)(304020003)

I have been driving the car for the last few days, all is well.
Just some lifter tick on cold oil.

Got my wheels back from the coater and had the tires fitted.
245/40 in the rear and 225/45 in the front, Vredestein tires.
Payed a bit with the shock settings, handling is quite good, although a little tail happy.
Might delete the rear sway bar.

Pictures suck, as I have the cheapest, oil stained phone you can imagine.
Will try to get some decent pics, these don't do the car justice.

Also, I have some more electrical work to do. Have to switch the fan relay using a 5V ECU output, so I will use a transistor circuit for that.
In addition, driving without tacho sucks, so I made this: (yet to be tested)

Next up: finish electrical work and install 302mm front brakes.
