    Thanks boss. It's quite surprising looking at the drivability side of things - it rides like a stocker too, but I do miss the boost factor of the raptor...

    So, a lot has happened since I updated on here last. I've went on a buying spree and purchased a few necessary parts:

    2x bosch 044 fuel pumps
    1x 2L surge tank
    4,224 x speedflow fittings (roughly)
    10m x teflon hose
    ASE billet fuel rails
    1x Magnafuel fuel regulator
    1x Tial 44mm wastegate
    Genracing Intercooler kit
    Genracing turbo manifolds
    1x Turbonetics Y2k T88 turbocharger
    1x Turbosmart Race Port BOV
    8x Injector Dynamics 1000cc injectors
    1x turbo beanie
    1x turbosmart Eboost 2

    Bayside Performance Services in Cleveland, Brisbane are going to do the tuning (continuing on from last time) and supplying/installing a NPC copper mix clutch.

    Nice job mate, looking forward to seeing the results from the turbo.

    I've always liked the Thunders.

    Thanks boss. Provided the fuel system bits all arrive this week I'll start fitting it up - should have it finished by sunday if all goes well, then It'll be 2 weeks or so and I'll install the turbo, get RCVX to make up the exhaust and have it tuned.

    Yeah not too keen on it myself, it's a >5 year old can that's been sitting outside my new work shed, I'd only use that crap as a size reference that's for sure!

    Yea I didn't even pay attention to that lol that's a pretty decent size turbo!

    How come you only went for single turbo?

    It's much easier to buy single turbo manifolds off the shelf, and it would have cost me twice as much for the turbos, oil drains, and made intercooling a bitch.

    I have a question, I'm a bit confused about the fuel setup you have going on. Theres 2 Bosch 044s correct? On a y piece going into 1 hose...shoudnt that hose after the y piece be bigger? The pumps would not be flowing at their maximum capacity? Almost fighting each other? Makes sense to have a bigger line so that it flows heaps better?

    To put it simply the second pump is only there to keep the pressure of the fuel up - admittedly if I was going for 1500hp I would have used an AN-8 hose after the Y-piece but there's no point in my installation.

    T88's are a big turbo.

    When are you expecting too see full boost?
