I've barely touched the Roadster over the last month as I was avoiding sorting out a nasty noise from the front Off-side. Yesterday I bit the bullet and changed the hub/bearing and gave it a vague clean, so it's back on the road and I've have taken some pictures as requested.
And yes...I do know the T3 gasket has gone already...from my scouting on here it seems that it may be better to not run a gasket,so I'll pull the turbo and try that. At the same time I'll do the relief cuts between runners.
Anyway here's the pictures. It's not pretty, but it does the job for relatively little outlay. Only hassle really is modifying the downpipe, and PAS line had to be rotated and it's bracket cut down.
The (Messy!) Bay:
It's up a bit further but clear bonnet no problem:
Inlet clocked upwards slightly and actuator shuffled round:
T3-T25 adaptor stacked onto Ebay Cast T3 manifold, this also shows cut down PAS line bracket which I need to tidy up.
The cast manifold flange is angled downwards approx 45deg compared to the horizontal flange of the GReddy Manifold, it's also located a few Inches further forwards (towards the front of the car). As a result the outlet flange has been rotated and moved forwards:
The Turbo relocation means more space for the downpipe routing, less bends required. A total of approx 90deg worth of bend sections removed from the GReddy downpipe and a straight section welded in. Hopefully this will also make things easier when/if I get round to making a larger bore downpipe.
Centre exit exhaust with ickle silencer. It's probably too small a bore as well but it will stay for the moment:
And for good measure a few random images of the car:
