yeah... i can't take it being slow any longer. I have a t3 and supra ct26.. I'm using the t3 for now. I'm waiting on a rebuild kit for it. It was nice and tight but didn't want it blowing smoke on the exhaust side.

Having experienced what the turbo does for my little SAAB, I would love to have a Turboed 1FZ. Or a turboed 2F, if I still had one.

Wes....I forgot to tell you that the new speedometer came in yesterday. Did you want me to bring it by?

I need a sticker from the Homegrown crew to go across that shiny alum tube...

I'm undecided on a spedometer right now.. That one still doesn't go above 35 ;) :lmao:

I'm going to get a dual westach for the TDI we have. I'm undecided too if i'm going to put the pyro in the 3bt manifold or the exhaust pipe.

How about this one? and....we do have the 26mph gauge in stock if you need a little more than the 25.

I finally got the bung tig'd on the pan... I need to get a 45* oil drain fitting. Button everything up and figure out something for exhaust. I can't drive it without at least some kind of downtube off the exhaust housing. I'll do a whole new exhaust but I need to be able to get it there somehow. I need a 90* bend right off the exhaust housing with about only 4" of room to do that so it's gotta be tight.

Wes,
Let me know when you want to haul it and I'll come up with the flatbed and lunch money! :thumb: :cheers:

wes - do you have the ability to regulate that vacuum pop-off/wastegate? best thing I ever did was put on a variable boost control valve on my porsche.. run around all day at 3psi boost in town, and slam that baby up to 21 for the twisties...

wesintl
11-26-2007, 09:26 AM
The waste gate is 7 psi IIRC. I thought about getting a manual boost controller so I could regulate up to 10 but realistically i'll probably be fine and I don't see boosting much past that. I want to drive it and see where i'm at before I jump.


I was probably going to go with A&A. I've heard good things and they are just down broadway which is easy to get to. Thanks UB and Tree, I might have to take one of you up on it.

Beater
11-26-2007, 09:36 AM
you won't ever go back if you go manual. The thing is, you can run 0 boost around town, or low psi, and save fuel, run 3psi or so for long flat highway and get better mpg, and dial it up on the hills!

It's the cat's meow...

wesintl

This is a way different beast than a Porsche though. I would NEVER run 0-1 psi and be miserable when I have boost under the hood. It'll still get (at least from what I hear) 22 mpg. It's kinda like the TDI's or the 760 volvo's. It needs a turbo just to be drivable esp out here. I could see running 7 all the time and controlling it to 10-12 on the passes. That's about it. Those suckers aren't inexpensive. My plan is to drive and see and then maybe adjust the wastegate so I get up to 10 if i'm on the throttle.

wesintl
11-26-2007, 03:46 PM
This is what i've been thinking.. This kind of manual boost control. I've seen way more expensive but with my boost gauge I'd be fine.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Manual-Turbo-Boost-Controller-Red-STi-Lancer-EVO-A4-MR2_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33742QQihZ008QQitemZ180183614708QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

some of the turbo smart controllers is more than I want to spend right now.

yep- just make sure you use real tubing, not what they supply. ask me how I know...

all I need is oil. I will be driving tomorrow :eek:

Thanks to Jim for helping me cobble together a piece of exhaust for it. It won't be permanent but mucho helpful to get a test run and to the exhaust shop.

Has anyone in the club done this on a 2F? That could be one cool project down the road.

We'll I did 65-75 from santa fe up to kipling on c470 and I seemed to still have some power. Man the turbo whistle is schweet. I managed to only finger tighten the oil feed on the block so I managed a full rust proofing underneath. :rolleyes: It's a mess.

I still need to tune it, ie adjust the fuel for my new found amount of air. get an exhaust, put the pyro on, add the boost gauge and manual boost controller.

remember to go heavier on the fuel than you think at first, but then, you knew that right?

John, this is a diesel. Running too rich on coal oil will make EGT's soar! Wes knows what he's doing! ;)

Wes you gonna get it over Vail pass for some skiing? PM me anytime.

wesintl
12-17-2007, 10:22 AM
Thanks Farnham, If I do get over the pass I'll let you know. I didn't get a buddy pass this year :( Unless I score a cheap CL ticket etc. $80 or whatever it is at the window is gonna hurt. Do you have any discounts through the shop?

I'll be at winter park (find me at eagle wind lift), Monarch and CB. Wife doesn't want me backcountry skiiing right now. If I do I have to up the life ins premiums significantly.

wesintl

egt's are a little high but overall it runs good. I'm just going to bag the boost controller and probably not hook up the wastegate. :hill:

Window price is $92 per day. I had some discount tickets for $40 but my friends have used them already. If I get anymore I'll shoot you a PM.

OMG.. I could have done a bad thing. I got a custom 2 1/2" straight exhaust with no wastegate and now I'm boosting up to 25psi :eek: The work scott did at AA on broadway is exactly what I wanted. 90* mandrel off the flange and routed inside the frame rail next to the t-case. No muffler. I think my previous set up which was a literal 90 out and down probably restricted my flow to such a degree I was only getting maybe 15. Once it opened up to a free flow I got me some major boost. I gotta adjust the fuel but I make 10-15psi like it's nothing :D

There will be no passing me until I bend some crank rods :o

I gotta look at blow off valves or something

I have a fuel cut off switch left over from my porsche 931. you are welcome to it. set to 1.5 bar, it is a manifold pressure control. it sends a signal at 1.5 to cut fuel until it goes back to 1.3... eliminates a lot of problems. you need to put a fitting on the intake plenum, but it's worth it.

not a boost control, but it eliminates the harsh wastegate cutoffs. wastegate or blow off happens, not as harsh.
