First time the bumper has been back on in a while.



Big GTX35 still fits



New radiator support for more clearance.



Cold Air intake is possible now with the smaller 3" intake turbo.



I changed the lower intercooler pipe routing, much shorter, this should make a noticeable improvement in spool. Not that it was a problem but improvements can all ways be made.

What a great way to spend a Sunday morning. Just devoured 28 pages and loved every bit of it.
Well done mate.

I got a temp gig running an automated TIG setup, I underestimated how challenging it actually is. This is not car related but some fancy sprinkler systems. By the time I finish this 100 some part order I'll have the hang of it.

Got the parts back from powder coat, installed. Ran it around for a quick data log season with Moto East. He recommended I cycle through this tank of gas as its a bit old. Because of that I have not hit wide open just yet but I can tell you now this 28RS rips! I hooked up my eBoost2 controller and it made a massive improvement, I'm in love!

Don't Under Estimate the DISCO POTATO!!!

Used braided line and heat sleeve for the eBoost2 control solenoid. Why risk it.







Dialing in the boost controller is incredibly good fun, what an improvement even at the same peak boost.
