can buy a hardpipe with map sensor on from forge motorsport :) they are in the traders section on here
to get the squashed pipe out you have to drop it yes, but i just cut mine out as i knew i would never use it again.
i used to run 2.5" piping from turbo to inlet mani
on your intercooler piping you want to get rid of the squashed pipe going inbetween your subframe on the passanger side - massive bottle neck
also, beed roll your hard pipes to stop them popping off under load :)
looking clean fair play, very tider car
welcome to SCN by the way :thumbup...
i have a AYP block sat on a pallet in my garage with 67k on it :)
Seriously though, better buying a complete doner car, stripping it down and putting it in yours, transfer the ecu, loom, engine, dash, pretty much everything :thumbup:
few minutes further down from wrexham and you would be on horse shoe pass - pretty similar to snake pass near sheffield - good road ! (near oswestry)
good luck going past tywyn, i think sheep outnumber people their 13-1 - watch yourself on them roads, i took out a badger just the other week...
unplumb the valves but leave the electrics plugged in - extend the wiring and move the valves to hide behind the scuttle panel
iv heard of resistors messing up ECU's, not alot of them, but it has happened a number of times
could have been wrong resistors or incorrectly installed though :shrug:
