    Lol Iom...i think like that too..

    actually the latest Wildtrak has TWO turbos already fitted so i think that 3rd 'turbo' might be overkill.

    What sort of performance increase is he getting from your 'after-market add-on?

    I'm guessing not as good as the Carlos Fandango ultra-wide wheels with the negative camber, but marginally better than the go-faster stripes...

    to keep on trak... wildtrak... is your son's car the vehicle in question.?

    i prob should have started a new thread for this... ahh well...

    Review pt 3, initial design considerations as detailed in post #199

    Plumbing

    27. separate systems for black and grey water
    Check! The separate 'systems' are in place but at present the meet up later on their way to the drain field

    28. all black water furniture to be against or very close to external walls
    Check! the design kept the WC units on or v close to the external wall to minimise cross-floor piping that might unexpectedly fail or block, distributing that black water through the ceiling into the lower levels

    29. three smaller septic tank arrangements, passing the fluid element to a single tank adj to the drain field
    Partial! 2 zones completed, 2 septic tanks fitted. The 3rd will follow once we start zone 2 in the new year

    30. water holding tanks to regulate the supply to the house
    No..not this one! It was dropped from the original plans but now... after that power cut stopped water getting to the bathrooms, maybe we will look again. could probably conceal a water tower tank on the mango land once the trees grow back up


    External

    31. provision for swimming pool later
    Check! there is definitely space, provision, desire and commitment for that swimming pool. the design is more lagoon pool than rectangular box. hopefully start that when i get there permanently. i will dig it myself, then get K.Pot to assist with the construction, etc

    32. privacy with perimeter wall, after house is constructed
    Check! 2.5M perimeter wall constructed, CCTV in place, solid gates at all openings, spiky plants planted, crocodile on order


    33. Japanese-style ornamental fish pond (no...not a fishing lake, PJ) near to dining room
    No...not this one! but... there will be. once the pool is constructed, we will have a 'bridge at one side and on the other 'side' of that bridge we will put the fish pond.


    Princess Joy's requirements

    34. Buddha room
    Check! Buddha room was in the plan and has been built (and used already)

    35. privacy
    Check! top half of the house is private.
