Yeah thats what im thinking! I best crack on and remove them just to check. Im hoping so just to save me £115 lol the up pipe has just aved me £50, or possibly £150 if its a decent one. This could be my day.... Then I have extra pennies to be spending on other bits Smile

Yeah it is a Lamba sensor.... providing its de-catted and standard diameter I will keep it any how. Just hoping my headers are ported now. I will give them a go tomorrow morning before work. Thats heat shield is really pissing me off though. All the bolts are corroded and the last 2 are too tight to get with the grinder so Im thinking about drilling them. Wrapping the up-pipe and headers will tidy the bottom up a huge ammount and a new sump plug washer and oil filter by the look of it

Received my hose kit today, only the start to my engine bay makeover. Only cheap hoses but seem strong and thick enough. Im not sure I would go cheap on intake hose.

If my dress up kit arrives tomorrow I will update some more photo's plus if my paint arrives some of the FMIc pipes will be finalized and fitted too.

Pretty happy chappy this morning! Apart from being burnt several times by shrapnel from drilling and the headers falling from the car and landing on my head... overall a good morning! It is a slip jointed up-pipe and also Im sure the headers are ported! I removed all the rusty heat shield and the new heat wrap is in the post Smile Here are some photo's anyway of the aftermath and the headers and up-pipe etc.

The aftermath...

What a relief I took the headers off because they were full of coolant, when disconected the turbo the hose must have pointed down the up pipe :/

Can anyone identify if these have been ported, I reckon so..

I have adapted my K&N Typhoon to fit my car by removing the pipe which takes it through the inner wing to this....... but is it just me or is that cone too small? If so I will just sell the full unit and buy a larger cone and trumpet. Cheers

Looking at your headers it looks like someone has started porting one side and not the other, is that just the pics or are both sides the same?

Its looking as though after I fit the headers and up pipe the project will be going on pause due to lack of funds. Think I will just get her running again and remapped then all the respraying can be done nearer show time Smile
