is the engineer happy with cutting holes? ages ago when i was talking with Archie in Bayswater he wasn't keen on chopping anything.. i did thump the shock tower on the passenger side for the 10mm clearance to the air con pump (on the 1UZ). he didn't seem bothered by that but i never got around to finishing it or taking it to him to "assess" (it fitted without the den't but didn't have even 3mm i guess)
Yeh the engineer is perfectly happy with cutting holes as long as they are reinforced 'by sandwiching or welding/rolling a pipe thru hole'.
This thing is going to be engineered down to the last nut and bolt, don't want mr over exuberant cop picking on anything.
hey mate! love the build, im going to do similar in my xb, is it a fg turbo or ba/bf ? ive heard the fg is smaller housing and has more clearance on the shock tower with a fg mainfold - can you slot the holes and move it across 2mm?
The turbo is FG and yeh they have smaller housing for quicker spool. I could slot but just not worth it. Massaging will work fine. Then tune it to max out the turbo.
