finally got my arse into gear

Post  STEVEGTI on 13/09/10, 05:21 pm

had a long ass weekend not because of the turbo bu because the water pump decided to give up after a day of being on axle stands and not running loool Very Happy. all is done apart from the oil feed line to the turbo. i dident make it well but i have a suspision that i have the wrong line for the ends.










just gonna run 10psi on the chip as its my daily and shes on 150.000 miles Very Happy and still going strong gonna dyno and get a video up soon as i sort the oil line and put my gagues and the other finishng touches in

Congratulations on your turbo conversion mate, nicely done. But, as I remember most of the conversions I've seen have the turbo inlet facing the other way, thats probably why u've got the air filter problem. N e way, I'm sure u'll work it out.

the emerald k3 can do 3 maps on a switch and more on your laptop. but theres a k6 out now which has more gadgets and a built in m.a.p sensor. The hankooks are amazing compared to the T1rs no competition i will stick with these hankooks i paid 200 for the tyres delivered and i dont pay for fitting so all in not bad.

i think the T1rs are good, better than the s-drives i had anyway.
really grippy in the dry not so easy to spin but i think there slighty worse than the s-drives in the wet tho.

Like the new top pic sketch of ur bay, how did u do that?
