  6. ive also ordered an air con pipe B082P4379F but this isnt available any ideas A082P4383F
  7. bit more done today between jobs . selling these if you want a pair new turbos back
  8. Also my v8 did the same I had little blue hot spots appearing on the flywheel face I put this down to the friction plates slipping I had the face skimmed by 0.003 mm and took the high spots off I never got chance to test I was waiting for my helix upgrade to arrive before the other issues but I'm hoping this was the problem the torque is huge so an Un even surface half's the friction foot print allowing it to slip worth a thought
  9. Those clamps never seemed to work for me either if you tighten them loads they just seemed to squish the pipe and they would still turn round I welded a small rod between them to give them strength as the weight is held off to one side hence why they droop . Get them in position barry and tack a bit of rod between them
  10. so turbos have been posted back to me complete strip and replacement of parts lots of damage . new actuators as well as they couldnt get the forge ones i had low enough for sensible boost levels i think the chap said 0.7 to 0.6 was the lowest they would go this time so they have been taken off . new k nuts for the manifolds 50 quid for 8 holy cow they are not cheap !
