  1. I'm parting out the clubbie as I plan to sell it soon unfortunately Nm engeeniring carbon intake for R56 FJCW with MAF price 300 Intercooler, now I bought that as I suspected it was a Borg Wagner and I was correct.I put it side by side with an actual one and they were identical. plus i could the the wagner logo was scraped off.. this is the competition version supposedly only for 2010+ models but I fitted on mine witch is a 2009 after I vandalise a bit the front bumper. Performance is as expected hands down the best I've seen without meth! at summer I stuggle to see +10 or +12 from ambient. 4k miles on it price 150 Oem downpipe with the cat removed no welds for a stealth look, if thats what you're after price 100 Defi Racer 60mm oi pressure gauge with 2 alta style 3d printed gauge pods for free 120 Prices ex shipping

    Turbo oil drain

    car was parted out, is a rolling shell nowdays why would I go backwards to internal wastegate? It is far superior in accurate boost control and helps out with the performance especially if the exhaust is somewhat restrictive, like it was on mine! funny story, I was looking for manifolds to be adapted to the head with the appropriate adaptor plate, and stumbled on your project thread when you where moking up the D16!

    Turbo oil drain

    Before I killed mine on the new engine I made the return like this, I had it too in the oil sump as everyone this was the only place with room for the starter to be removed etc
