    And then spray it with the COOL IT thermal paint to make it absolutely perfect and you will never see it deteriorate. That's how we do it. All you have to do is ask about it.

    i will look at my supplier for the brand, as far as the crossing, just look at the manual and it says everything pretty clear.

    We are putting my brother's car inside the shop for the following maintenance today, and some other goodies.

    TRD differential with new bearing and seals, with Castrol RS diff fluid
    TRD strut brace
    Goodridge brake lines and fluid change
    New Boostlogic turbo blankets
    Oil Change
    Oil filter change
    Boost solenoid install, and tuning at 1.5 bars
    New tyres 235/35/19 front, 295/30/19 rear
    inspection of every nuts and bolt on the front and rear subframe
    Allignment check
    Brake system complete check up
    TEIN suspension check and rebuild if neccesary
    HKS midpipe (he had an exhaust shop made one, but it looks like $hit)
    Air filter clean up
    IK24s replacement
    Compression check, leakdown check and shimming check of valves.
    HKS triple clutch check and retighten
    Complete instrument cluster carbon kit install
    HKS manifolds retighten, turbine housings retighten, wastegates retighten.
    Inspect all the t-bolt clamps on the IC pipes.

    The one year basic maintenance and some more stuff.
    It should be interesting to see if at 1.5 bars, we run out of injectors on pump gas. I'm pretty sure we will, so we might reduce our target to 1.4 or 1.3. We'll see and act accordingly. Should be back on the street by mid next week, hopefully a lot faster.

    I was specifically told by Zircotek NOT to wet the wrap. They said the reason is that it retains moisture, which then obviously boils off when the manifold get's hot, and can cause the manifold to crack.
    Otherwise yes it would be much better to wet it, as it's a real MOFO to come into contact with when it's dry.

    How many days were you itching after the wrapping, I hate wrapping, that's why i charge the customers about 300-400 euros plus the wrap in order to do the job.

    First of all, when I went to fit the banjo fittings after putting the pump assembly into position and fitting the retainer ring (here's a tip, if you're struggling to re-fit the retainer ring try running some grease on the thread. Not too much mind, you don't want to be getting it in the fuel tank!) I found that as the banjo fittings sit very close to the top of the retainer ring, they fouled it. So I had to relieve some of the upper portion of the ring around each fitting:-

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6..._1873Large.jpg

    I then found even when just using banjo fixings and not the 90 degree bends that I'd originally hoped to use, it still fouled the inspection cover. To get around this I initially tried turning down the head of the -8 feed bolt. But it still clashed with the inspection cover, so there was nothing else to do than grind a small hole into the top of the cover. By the time I'd finished it was a not so small hole. It's not very neat but it's got the job done. If I were doing it again, I would just drill a hole just big enough to fit the bolt head through. I also drilled a 6mm hole through the inspection cover and fitted a gromet for my ground strap to go through:-

    I've fitted the ground strap to the ground point on the rear bulkhead. I've given myself enough cable so that I can tape it to the floor of the boot so it won't catch on anything:-

    I also fitted the fuel feed up to the fuel filter and produced an exact list of components that I've used for my fuel line set-up that I'll post later.
    2Tlicense, can you help me plz:

    I am going to do smth the same on my Evo and I found almost all parts of the connector, but I cant find how to fix the terminal in fuel pump hanger. can you please check picture of what I need (marked red), may be you ciuld give me a tip where to get it.



    also is there any "gasket" supplied with



    thanks a lot,
    Misha
