Such a nice morning decided to get on with the fitting :p
Got a range of clips and a 7mm driver

First disconnect the maf and n75 care with this as they are easy to break and £40 to replace


Next remove the air box


This gives loads of room to get at the old tip I then cut the bands holding
the n75 waste gate actuator pipe in place

and finally its out after removing the bottom hose clip
Comparing the two side by side

Now I actually get to see my turbo for the first time ever :eek:




Gave the area a bit of a clean with degreaser before I put the new tip on
But when I put the SFS tip in place I noticed the gear shifter cable bracket
Had a very sharp edge quite close to the wall of the pipe :(

so I split a short bit of plastic tubing and stuck it in place with glue to protect the edge

put all the clips on it in the right place

and then made certain the lowest clip was the correct distance from the edge and nipped it up

that's it all done



Finally got rid of the horrble clips :p


Overall the job was quite easy much simpler than I thought it would be
as there is quite good accessibility once you get the air box out of the way :mrgreen:

and the pipe was a good fit as its a cupra type "R" one and mines a 225 bam

Next job is the cold side diverter kit hopefully that will arrive before the rain comes back :?

Just went for a quick drive and I AM impressed tubo does spool up quicker car pulls better
and you can hear the dump valve more with the windows open kinda addictive to
slow down and speed up again so you can get to hear it more :mrgreen:
it was worth doing I think :p

great post and pics/text. Mine (forge)is on order and hopefully will arrive in the next few days. I'll have this howto handy for the install.

what did you use to snip the oem clips? basic wire snips?

cheers.

just a pair of wire cutters they are only soft alloy no challenge
the purpose of fitting it was to improve turbo spool up time by allowing better ventilation and i have now driven car more and can say it IS better

Awesome write up mate.

But from the looks of your air box...more holes are needed!

;)

I did follow the original WAKBOX formula but I could drill more no problem :mrgreen:
I will do that when I do my next install the cold side relocation kit watch this space
as soon as it arrives I will be fitting it and will of corse do a photo session at the same time
as I know you guys like photos :wink:
I even put a light coating of grease on the forge dv so its easy to
remove in preperation for the CSRK [smiley=idea.gif]
