Have you got a cool running stat? and an m-tech cooler fan switch?
I put these on my LET and it never ever gets hot... Even on hot summer days in traffic.
The car is a credit to you though mate. I like clean cars lmao

Thankyou, looking forward to seeing yours again
Update time again:
First off i gave the rad i good polish 50/50:
Fitted my 12" Fan with proper fan ties
New Genuine Fan switch
and all fitted
Since the engine build I sometimes get a small "puff" of blue smoke high up in the revs, I don't think its valve steams as these are new as is everything else on the engine! At TVL i got talking to steveboyslim and he advised me that sometimes the kkk16 turbos can suffer with excessive oil feed and said regal used to sell a restrictive banjo bolt which he now sells and happened to have one on him, so i thought i would give it ago as its the easiest option!
Standard oil feed vs modified feed
Ill keep you posted how i get on
I then re routed the throttle cable
TB cable looks much better, told you it would.
really like the attention to detail with this build, mine will be nowhere near as tidy!
I re-lubed my cable as it too was stiff routed round there it was fine after that.
I used a teflon lube from a motorbike supplier, can't remember it's name though.
Update time again
Right its been really busy weekend/week, I had him rolling roaded on Sunday but had a small mishap when the actuator bracket bolt snapped! it did a total of 6 runs at 15psi! He made 256 hp @ flywheel 224 hp @ the wheels and 256.8lbft at 33.2 C which was ****ing hot before the bracket bolt went but still managed 242.5 hp @ flywheel 210.7 hp @ the wheels 249.3 lbft after! I have since replaced the bolt which I had to drill and helicoil but its fixed now and I'm booked back in tomorrow night to have the boost turned up
How it started
onto the rollers looking evil
The Graphs, you can see the blue run is where the bolt snapped as the boost isn't as high and drops off!
Back at home the next day Removing inlet housing ready for drilling
And its all back together ready for tomorrow, hopefully have more luck then
good luck for tomorrow dude!

Daily - Vectra C 1.9 CDTI (120bhp)
Track - W Reg Mk5 Zetec-S Fiesta
Nice power tho,
Good healthy power that Dale. Good luck for the next run, cant wait to see the results
is the turbo less smokey now with the bolt??
Roll on LET power....
thats very good power considering, good luck with the next runs!
Bit of a late update:
Well Wed 18th I was back down the rolling road
Am alot happier with the results although its only 2hp by looking at the graphs but its the way if drives now and holds boost! It now makes power all the way to the 6,500 where before it would drop off at 5,750 and this was before the bolt snapped! Boost now peaks at 17psi and holds 15psi! I also fitted a MBC but was unable to turn the boost up more as we found the exhaust was too small causing to much back pressure! So I am looking into buying either a longlife or bluefame 3" system as the backbox is still a jetex "of the self" item which isn't design for a turbo and has a small outlet! The other problem We came across is the "chips" aren't the best, i have to have my AFR at 11:1 at idle to make it stay in the 12/13's high in the rpm, otherwise it goes too lean! I am unsure of the chips as they came with my engine when i bought it a few years ago!
Since then I have bought Genuine Phase 3 EDS and saab red injectors and have looked into the exhaust more!
Final Figures for now:
BHP @ Wheels 219.6bhp @ 6,004rpm
BHP @ Flywheel 260.6bhp @ 6,235rpm
Torque 243.1lbft @ 5,041rpm
The reason for the rush was it was this was happening Saturday morning...
And a picture I took:
Then Saturday evening I was off to a tunnel Run Again and heres a few of my car:
