    Was yours the turbo one that never seemed to like maintaining oil pressure?! Yeah keeping busy, been on here a long while. Fountain of knowledge in its members.

    Yeah it won’t hold oil pressure when it’s warm - *NO SWEARING ON THIS FORUM* me off now so I started playing with the focus instead

    I would stick a camera through each branch and check for any blow through or debris if they are feeding turbos. :thumbup:

    There’s a little bit of both. Not too bad as I’ve used the thicker walled sch10 stuff.

    No idea how I’m gonna clean them off, might have to buy a finger sander or something.

    Either that or I’ll sacrifice the turbos to the power gods with a view to upgrade them anyway :clapping:

    finger sander well worth owning ...can also cut a slot in a bar , fit that in a drill and wrap emery paper in the slot so its like a flap wheel

    Finger sander is what I used on my bike header. I gave the welder a bottle of argon especially to use as a purge and he didn't bloody use it :mad::mad::mad:

    Took me ages but I got it all.

    You must know Lorcan Parnell!

    Unfortunately I don’t think that will fly with the exhaust I have planned - and the much wider rear axle lol
