I have just have a few... here they are, as said above car seems complete. I was surprised at speed sport's speed of installation, yesterday night parts were in the box and by today evening it was all set. Waiting for this car to fire up now.

Cheers

Sweet stuff. I am not sure but I have heard that the Teins could be pretty harsh in terms of ride quality but they are fantastic for track use,nonetheless super choice for coilovers.

Thanks Amey, I was told Teins are amongst the "best in the business" & are needed to be able to handle "brute forces", so went ahead. I certainly hope they are not too harsh. Ya the Turbo is a T20

How's your build coming along, at one point I was going to go for a stock Cedia & TC it with forged internals. But then thought Swift is more do-able as I already have the car.

I like the extractors.
But, whats with the Jugaadish "Garrett" Intercooler?
Can you have it replaced?

India mein Jugaad to hota hi hai !! Now that it is in India it's taken on the influence LOL

On a serious note, could you kindly enlighten me, as to why you think it is "jugaadish" ??

Thanks in advance

YIKES!
I know of el cheapo inter-coolers that are made from cutting cores out of large, used heat exchangers and this "charged air intercooler" reminded me of those.
Do please check on the genuinity once more, Speedsport.

Good choice on the ECU. Does it come with a plug in harness or do we have to do the wiring?

I think it has a plug in harness, not sure though, as I did not see the wiring.

@phil

Could you please answer that one ?

@nitrous

The source of these components is way beyond doubt, that is one thing I can be sure of. I hope you do not have any doubts about the other components




Cheers

@crazy diablo: not plug and play , have to sit and figure out the wiring.

Installation is top notch. Nice manifold also. Excellent progress, I am keeping a keen eye on this thread.

Wiring is going to give you a headache. Maybe you can make your own harness and sell it as a product. Thumbsup for the build so far.

DIYPNP guys sell MS kits which you can assemble and use as standalones and they give a compatible socket which plugs in the stock harness.Maybe you could order just the socket which will make your life easier while wiring up the ecu.
I am sure you are a pro and know what your are doing but who knows,it might just make things easier for you,thats all.

Excellent progress on the build and nice choice of parts too,way to go!

Teins are awesome sir,never meant to say they are bad,no way!
All I meant was that they are stiff and could be annoying at times,again this is what I have heard and read,I could be wrong.
Nice choice for a turbo,not too big not too small,should spool fairly quick avoiding the annoying turbo lag.

My build is progressing slowly but steadily.Since mine is more of a DIY thing, it was going to be a slow build since I haven't given my car to a tuner who would have definitely done things faster
Braces are done, shocks have arrived so installing them is underway.Once that is done,we begin the turbo plumbing since turbo,wastegate,BOV,injectors are already here.Once that is done, the most difficult part remains,tuning.Then when base tuning is finished at 5 psi with stock internals, its time to go forged and 1bar boost. Once that is sorted out, the car goes for paintwork and new shoes.

Lets hope things go smoothly.
