After abit of advice...
On turbo selection...
So car is a 93 1.6.
It had i believe a chinese gt2860r

Which i feel is too big for a 1.6 and staying stock engine.

So my choices are gt2560r and gt2554r.
BOFI have been very helpful and recommended the gt2554r.

Im assuming will fit straight in..

There is a slip joint on the downpipe so can be adjusted closer to smaller turbo...

The car has running stock clutch and was running actuator pressure on an external WG ...no idea on spring pressure.

Any wisdom greatly appreciated.

Ive got zero chance of mapping atmo how things are but be nice to get up and running and check engine ok. Will be mapped when clutch done.

very good chat with Daniel at Bofi!

its getting a gt2554r.. ordering the turbo thursday.(payday, ive been on ssp for 6 weeks!!!b4 this virus back at work check im getting paid!) Due to this virus Danial has offered remote tuning to get me up and running.

whizz it around at 170ish on standard clutch check all ok then fit clutch and source a 4.1 torsen and go back for more boost later. hopefully on a track later in year.

Ive got the buckets and harnesses from the fd to trial fit and once sourced some oem seats for that.

1 day off so its arch rolling on agenda and junking these awful fibreglass wings. :D

So cracking on going over install.
Ive found a prob i jeed help with...tidying up intercooler install noticed iac air hose badly kinked and no clips on it...on removal just pulled off..it is just 3/4 id hose...
Looks like i need a standard hose but im assuming wont reach the tail on the bofi intake pipe. Been awhile since i had mk1 1.6 so cant remember what plenum is like...looking at piccys online the plenum tail looks higher....any help appreciated.

Found 1.6 mk1 piccy...totally different...so no point buying standard hose.

I reckon i need to buy a silicone 180, a 90 and a 45 some alloy couplers and see if i can join up some configuration....problem being loads of joins...not good for elimating boost leaks.

I was under impression was a bypass for idle when throttle body closed? Car is mafless so could block ic....
depending on ecu, you could remove the iac completely & rely on the throttle-butterfly (& iys bypass screw) for idle adjustment (sorta what I've done but left it attached as still using a standard ecu & didn't want fault-codes)

I've also removed & blanked the 'thermo-valve' on the inlet manfold (by number 2 injector) and deleted the smallbore coolant pipework :whistle:
