seems like one of the old un-exciting updates i used to do on an old thread from a few years ago........

v-band adapter and clamp came this morning from aet turbo's. great company to deal with incase anyone was considering it. i got all the unions, oil restrictor etc from there for the gt35r.

bad news is i have had to come home from work to go to the doctors, maybe hospital. went over on my ankle yesterday dont think its broken but i cant walk on it. maybe ligament damage. either way, probably wont be getting anything done on the car this weekend unless it gets better and fast.

aint broken my ankle. just seriously bruised, swolen and badly sprained. signed off sick for a week which is no good really as sick pay is a load of bollocks.



got an alloy twin core rad for a nova will fit nicely give a bit more cooling also. std corsa rad worked fine tbh, it was just probably 10 years old and marked to hell. just waiting on a wastegate arriving hopefully this week then as far as i know thats almost all the parts to finish the car.

yeah the shaft snapped as i was leaving town to go home. pulled out to over take a car that was doing 30 in a 60 and had no boost. got home and took it to bits to find this....



no beef as new turbo is a fair way better made......

150 ish from america. advert said will run 32psi and do 500bhp. for the price i cant argue with it giving up. it had a hard life and had started to smoke a bit anyway few weeks before it snapped. bearings were fine in it, seals had gone. it did itself proud sort of. bhp on a budget. sadly im passed that these days. everything is now becoming a bit too costly.
