Nice work there. Are you going to be able to dyno the truck after engine mods?

I like the porting and controlled turbo ideas!

I have the opportunity to put the truck on the Dyno and I should be able to also log the information where I will get the EGT the boost and RPM, so then I'm also able to tweak the tune where all my parameters should be in check

Found some Recaro seats on Ebay...woohoo

They are not exactly for a Defender, but affordable. I am waiting for UPS to pick them up for me, so i may start to see what could be done to make them near perfect additions for my ride.

I also was given a free center consol seat combo that should fit with a little fabrication work done to the lower bracket.

Pix to follow delivery of parts.

My bulkhead repairs will start next week once my parcel clears customs.

I also fixed the rear box where the a-frame connects to. Had a few holes and we welded them shut with 3mm pcs.

As a bonus, i wish i googled before i went balls to the wall with Alive. I found a Billet cartridge from turbo rebuild limited for around 200gbp.

https://www.turborebuild.co.uk/webshop/pro...ridge.html

I may just buy the cartridge, and install it on my 10p engine, then over the summer, swap the 10p for my ported 15p with hybrid turbo and see what it brings to the table.

Just need to find a stage 1 chip for my MSB ecu...
