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...

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.

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/Manua...spagenameZWDVW

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

all I need is oil. I will be driving tomorrow

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.

THIS IS SWEET!

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. 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!
