Manifold is all done now.



Took me a while to reply cos I'm so blown away by what you're doing here Oliver! This manifold is so freaking awesome mate - it looks like something our butcher would churn out of his black sausage machine - good enough to eat!

Great job! A mate of mine has put an OM606 in a Suzuki Vitara! It's a beast!


Every great journey starts in first gear and by releasing the clutch....

Well shes all back on the road taxed and MOTd. Just running the new clutch plates in but all working well so far. Had a slight tapping till I realised a glow plug was loose and a fuel leak from a loose banjo but not bad as far as teething problems go. And had to put a bigger boost gauge in as the old one didnt go high enough. Its a bit loud for my liking tho so I think I might put another silencer in.

2.5 bar at the mo. Old gauge only went up to 2. Il run it at 2.5 for a bit then swap the external waste gate springs and run 3.5 bar. See how much difference it makes. Its fast enough now tho tbh
