have to do a bit of maintenance as the gasket between the turbo and manifold gave intoday on the big Z after lap 10 ... but she was as reliable as a hammer today!
will post some pics of the repairs tomorrow...

Do you gave a bracket to head from turbo and bracket from downpipe to block and a flex joint installed?

The heat and stresses on turbo flange bolts from the turbo and down pipe causes movement on gasket and fails after some time.

not yet, but i will be fabricating these tomorrow and post some pix, should've done it looong ago but my saying is: "ry hom tot hy breek dan weet jy wat's fout... :lol: "

have to add though, it took quite a beating on the track....
