Have turned the turbo compressor housing and refitted the manifold you will need to replace the dump valve acuator pipe as will not be long enough. I found a piece of blue silicon hose to reconnect it and some M5 socket head cap screws to replace the god awfull Torx screws fitted on the IHI turbo housing. Whole job realistically took just over an hour to do, luckily Isuzu use metal laminated gaskets that you can just re use so the cost of doing this mod was virtually nothing

Recently the radio has started cutting out after 10 to 15 minutes of operation, it sounds as if the amplifier section of the radio is overheating as all the functions work, there is just no sound coming out.
Anyway, Halford spotted one lurking on Ebay and I won it for Â£16.50 (Thanks!).......
I noticed that one of my rear shocks was leaking so was in need of replacing. As I have the mantra of replacing with quality parts, I initially decided to go with Rough Country shocks (no lift - standard length), but unfortunately, didn't fit correctly.
