im pretty pissed off right now....


cleaned the bay on the weekend... spend real long with brake cleaner, soapwater and ****... looked pretty good as new... but then the water dried.....

Now it looks like it did before... not dirty anymore but stubby paint.. which looks exactly like dirt on good 412 paint...


anyway... did the oilcooler plumbing with my dad.. those hoses arent controllable when youre alone... messed up 2 feet trying to manage it on my own ;)











So.. im between the fronts now... fabbing upper mounts to the bumper or to the GFK stuff? You can see a stripe of tape... like this or better to the bumpers rear aluminum plate

A bit off topic, but I see now the very nice lip under your bumper...from where it's coming?

it was in there 3 times now


but finally i realized my enginebay is not getting nicer so it stays next time i'll put it in there... have to do some electrical stuff @ first and its so much easier to work in the bay with harnesses and stuff when the plant isnt in there...


And yes, i can ;) its pretty tight, though but with no problems interchangeable..

But im concerned about the filters behaviour.. hope there will be no problems regarding flow, pressure level... its off a pt cruiser 2.4 ... we'll see..

Put it in the airflow, so not behind the bumper (in my opinion)...

yeah... you see the 3 inlets? the cooler couch potatoes directly attached to them ;)

my question is where to mount the upper brackets... like the strip of tape or against the grey surface you see which is the rear of the bumperframe

Willet Run ? YES !! :D





No leaks so far... but the gauge on the FPR leaked as hell.. so i fixed it on 3bar without vac pressure and unscrewed it.... bloody thing...


Dont shoot me on that generator pulley.. i am 100% sure that i tightened that thing up before reassembling... maybe... not tight enough... i dont know... im sure i tightened it up.. but that was 8 months ago :D


BTW: the sound of a 16v Turbo is... AWWWW
