    New (old) boost gauge fitted, and set up a duel stage boost control as well as the mbc, so now I can have standard mapped boost of 1.3 bar or when I flick the switch it enables my boost pressure switch which will trigger 1.6 bar as soon as it sees 1.1 bar which should mean less wheel spin in first and second as boost is limited and then all boost after that hopefully make launching at Shakey a bit better next month

    Not really done anything to the old girl, just drive and maintain, but today I made a start on new boost cooling.

    Well, that seems to fit much less boost pipe now.




    Another little issue I've had is a knackered thermostat, but unfortunately one of the previous owners have mullered the screws, so not wanting to leave myself without a car, I've bodged a Renault 5 in hose thermostat into the top hose

    Charge cooler all finished (bar a bit of tidying up) Now I just need to monitor the temps and set the water pump at the optimal flow for best results.

    To get a bit more air to the filter, I'm afraid I had to pull out the angle grinder

    OK, update on the charge cooler, initial monitoring has shown up a couple of interesting results, firstly, I've made an airbox so that air from the bonnet vent can go directly to the filter, inside the ducting there is a small fan that I can switch on when the car is stationary (works really well) the first surprise is so far I see no correlation with the temp of the air going into the air filter and the air going into the intake manifold. (I'll do some more testing by blocking off the bonnet vent and taking the airbox lid off so that the air filter is again taking in engine bay temps) engine intake temps seems to be a steady 6 to 10 degrees hotter than the outside temp.



    Two red gauges are temps in and out of the charge cooler, the blue gauges monitor engine bay temp and airbox temp.



    One more result I wasn't expecting was, the fan on the radiator actually seems to have the opposite effect, (I've made sure it's blowing through the rad) when I put it on, it seems to cause heat from the cars engine coolant rad to be drawn into the charge cooler rad. I have a cunning plan to get over this small issue
