Looks in good condition, but if repaint ever required, these look good in two tone red/silver over black:

i kinda like the small dents and scratches.
My son and I dropped it off at Woolf mufflers today to get the exhaust manifold made.
hopefully its not off the road for to long.
going round to a mates tonight to cut the TB off and weld it to the other end of the intake manifold.

and it doesnt work low mounting it. the turbo gets a bit close to the alternator and the intake is too close the the radiator pipe.
will probably have to remount the wastegate actuator as well, but thats easy.
i am thinking it will be a top mount and run it close to the brake resivoir. headers, and dump pipe will be HPC coated and then wrapped. then some sort of heat sheild made up.
i really dont want to have to get another turbo........ but it maybe easier.

it could just work/be a pain in the arse to change spark plugs. but that is cool.

you could simply elongate the distance between the head and where the turbo bolts on.
thats what i was trying to tell them.
i dont think they listen to me, cos i turn up dressed in my fancy work clothes.
next time i'll turn up with with my overalls on and hands covered in oil.

what i was planing on doing to my exhaust manifold is:
heat treatments, to stress releive the manifold.
HPC to coat the manifold
then wrap the manifold.
should i wrap or not wrap?
