Oh I got confused by "spaghetti " pipe as the small one that goes into the top of the nipple of the dump valve.  Makes sense now.

I'm happy where everything needs to go now apart from just need to see a pic of where that small one goes from the nipple to the inlet manifold. I should be able to reuse that thin hose that is on the nipple of my current dump valve at the moment.

I've ordered the 008 and 3m of silicone hosing. In case I need spare etc.

I need to get that OEM pipe that goes into the blank charge pipe to the side of the DV.

Very nice mate! Those silver braided hoses you have on the left side near the coolant. I was looking at black braided  ones on eBay to replace those pipes but wasn't sure what size they are?

Been looking at induction kits. Saw the ram air one. I've got a pipercross panel filter at the moment.

I had that RAM custom made, wasn't checp but was assured it wouldn't heat soak but I am not convinced it didn't tbh.

I cannot remmeber the size on the braided lines sorry pal, I bought them 2nd hand.

Under neath the inlet on the opposite side to the throttle body youll feel where two vac lines go. One of the should go to youve dumpvalve

One last thing so i can ask TSP for the pipe, whats the name of the pipe that usually goes from here to the recirc valve 008. 008 has arrived but cant fit without that pipe!

Ricerc pipe to turbo outlet should get you the correct one

Whizzed down my local breakers and grabbed one.

008 all fitted now with into the OEM position. Also found out i had a tear in the small blue 3mm vaccum hose so sorted that too. I thought i had heard a faint hissing.

Going to take the car for a spin and see how it feels.

Thanks for the help guys. Next i will do the N249 bypass and been looking at the SAI delete but heard mixed things about that one...
