If i was to do it again i would seal the underside first, then cavity wax.

The cavity wax seeps through the seams and over the bodywork. If you was to under seal first it would allow the cavity wax to spread between the joints but no further.

Thanks guys!

The smartest thing would not to be driving the car this winter, so I won't. I don't drive the car much anyway during the year unfortunately, so I think this can stay for another year.

Winter 2020-2021 would then see all front, rear, inside of the car out, to strip to bare metal the whole underside and the engine bay. Car paint is great so I won't touch it. Interior is great too, so will leave it. However, while everything is out, might forge the engine to take a bit more power in the future, and powder coat all mechanical parts, take care of the rusted bolts etc.

Just throwing out ideas here, as I cannot do it this winter, I will have time to think about it and make a proper plan.

Woke up early to have empty roads, managed to do few pulls using Virtualdyno. I did them in 3rd gear with correct tyre size and gear ratio, all rest of Virtualdyno parameter default, here are the results (I didn't use the exact same stretch of road, but they were all pretty much flat):



And because I woke up so early I could see the sun rise, perfect occasion to take few pictures. Here is a try at a HDR photo:



Next step will be fitting 3 port boost solenoid to try to improve turbo spool, and a GM 3 bar map sensor. Then I will turn the boost up a bit and see what happens!

Happy!

Had a bit of a surprise today while removing the intake hose to fit the 3 port boost solenoid:



Turbo has some axial and radial play. Nothing too bad, I don't have oil consumption or smoke, and car is making great power so its not on its last leg, but I don't think oil there is normal Its quite artistic however haha. I planned to rebuild the engine end of next year, so this turbo will probably get replaced then

As for the 3 port boost solenoid, I didn't notice any improvement in turbo spool. Quite surprised actually considering what I've read or heard. Even with wastegate duty at 100% until 3500rpm the boost curve is the same as with the factory solenoid.

P.S.: What would be a safe boost to run the car at? I am running 1.1bar at the moment.

Very artistic

I have seen turbo inlet pipes a lot oilier than that, though that could be coming from the turbo oil seal given the way the oil has been sprayed out. There isn't very much though so i wouldn't worry about it just yet.
