Its been a while since I updated anything. The engine went into the 205 weeks ago and had it fire up and run. Been slow progress at the moment on waiting for delivery on boost pipes intercoolers (had a escort cosworth to begin with but was to big)

Modified the 205 exhaust to fit to the turbo. (the car came with a powerflow exhaust) The welding doesn't look that nice - I had thick wire and had to fill 10mm gaps.

Boost pipes routed.

Plan was to make the car look completely standard from the outside, and you can't see the intercooler at all.

The standard rad is being reused. Its lowered to clear the boost pipes and will have a slim line fan. Just need to weld on the other side bracket.

Still a couple of jobs to do - mostly the water pipes.
