    i'd move that rad away from the slam panel if i were you.looks like it will end up rubbing through.

    did it have the missfire before doing the turbo conversion??i know this will sound obvious but if not then,go back over everything youve removed/moved or adjusted.

    if they are new plug leads,try the old ones back on,if you changed the cambelt,check its timed up correctly etc...

    looks good btw...

    EDIT:is that an icv pipe coming off the manifold thats left disconnected??not sure whether these have a maf or afm,but if that were the case you'd be taking in unmetered air through that pipe,hence crappy running.not a definate fix,but something to look into.

    Right ive done some trouble shooting, 100% no ignition at no one cylinder!, the car had developed a random missfire where it would drop to 3 cylinders for a few seconds 2 weeks before i did the conversion.

    I have got the new outlet pipe welded see new pic all pipes have been connected. new pic.

    i changed all the spark plugs to ones out of my s15 so i know they work.

    Number 1 is not firing so not sure if its spark, or fuel related. going to check for a spark tomorro grrrrr

    Riiiight I have been literally too frustrated with not having my car and losing it to a mysterious illness.

    Anyway, it has now had the misfire fixed only to find that the turbo was not viable so had to scope out a new one...

    Word of mouth is amazing, chatting to a few at the Drift-Inc odc sesh on Sunday and Ali (hope it's spelled right) volunteered his t28! Awesome and relief are not good enough to explain how I feel lol

    So now, I'm having a t28 instead if the t25.... I'll keep updates after the fitting this week lol

    Was the misfire due to the coil not grounding on the wing properly perchance? ;)

    coil was fucked in general, the multimeter showed a voltage drop from 12v to 6v when cranking so it was not amplifying anything.
