Started on the air inlet to the turbo today, first job was to weld the ally donut halves together with the TIG. Seems a shame to grind them off afterwards!
Seeing as cyclonic “pre-filters” are de rigueur at the moment I had a scrat around in my piles of useless rubbish I seem to accumulate and found an item from a 1.6D “CS” engine. I’ve had to trim a little from the inlet and similarly from the airbox too and I’ve packed the air box brackets away from the chassis a little to get it to work. It’s a mock up, I may not use it yet if it causes any clearance issues, but, looks okay at the moment!
