    Yep they can, not long replaced the one-way valve in the line whilst chasing a boost issue that I never really got to pin point the cause of, but it went so happy days....

    Right then.....All back to normal, suspected boost leak found on one of the only 2 joints that don't where mikalor pipe clamps,which was missed as when my home made custom rip pipes were fitted at york raceway a couple of years back, I didn't have anything to trim the fan/radiator cowl back, so used the original clip. Well the cowl is now modified to allow the last remaining mikalor clip to be fitted and thing are running fine again.......A word to the wise for people with similar issues, I ran around in the car for about 3 days, limping here and there, so when then pipework was refitted and the engine run, It does take a fair while for the ecu to get itself back to normal (no mil lamp on last run and only 4-1-4 and 2-2-1 stored and not relevant) but slowly and surely she returned to normal idle and is as responsive as before, just needs a full shakedown run in the next day or 2, to fully confirm were are totally back to normal, not that I have any doubts on that now.


    Whilst the pipes where been played with, I thought it was a good time to fit the intake temperature sensors in to the intake pipe (blue) and just in front for the throttle body (red), wiring and internal installation to be completed in the next couple of days when it's warmer..?

    looking like it, got a load more bits to do yet, sorting out niggles and rattles, also swapping some parts for better items and general tidying up as I go through her over the next few days.

    P.S. Got you bulkhead pipes/fittings here sitting in a box still, pm me an addy and I'll post them if you not up here for a while.

    Arduino is getting there, at the moment going through the code to see if I can make it faster and add some menu functions to control the exhaust flap automatically.
