I'm with you now, thats the crossover pipe that you have cut and welded the AN fitting to. What did you do with the port that goes from the thermostat housing to the water/vaccum pipe connector? Block it off?

You can't block that off unfortunately, and if you're planning on having heat, that is something you'll need to keep there. However you can modify it to remove the vacuum pass through, but you'll also need that if you're planning on running the vacuum pump with the stock hoses to the brake booster.

Break in the engine at low boost, and a lot of finishing/cleanup type stuff is left.

Ive only just read the whole build thread. What happened to the DAP video updates? Have you got any pics of the engine bay with the coolant tank and rad hard pipe plumbed in?

We have more videos coming out soon.

Don't actually have any other pictures of the engine bay. I'll try and take some tonight.

Whoops forgot to take more pictures, sorry. Should be around the car again Saturday.

In the meantime we made a video about the car, covering some of the work done on it. A bit different from the rest of the series, but oh well. Hope you don't hate me too much I'm not usually on camera

Found out if you do a vacuum pump delete you also need to block off the oil feed for it.
