Well you won't get away with running 7 PSI on a daily basis with standard compression, so your gonna have to lower it.antony_aiken said:if
so im after a small turbo, probs one not capable of any more than 10psi.. and would run it at no more than 7,
Ian you say that with NO experience at all. I guarantee I could make a CG13 last on 7psi on standard compression, I guarantee many other people have, on other engines its common. Please dont make sweeping statements like this.Ian said:Well you won't get away with running 7 PSI on a daily basis with standard compression, so your gonna have to lower it.
Davey will be able to answer this fully. Im guessing it would be stock compression. Mr Grassies turbo was running this, but with a thicker head gasket to help things a bit.dlongmu said:you have stock compression dont ya?! how does it hold up?! also how much you think this turbo build was done for?! im assuming the exhaust mustve been the most expensive bit no?? where'd you get your manifold from or was it custom too?!
yes i have stock compression, its holding up ok so far (find some wood to touch everyone) lol.dlongmu said:you have stock compression dont ya?! how does it hold up?! also how much you think this turbo build was done for?! im assuming the exhaust mustve been the most expensive bit no?? where'd you get your manifold from or was it custom too?!
haha dont mention engine popping :upside: ... erm, id be fittin the parts myself for sure, i was a bit worried about the intercooler, prob chargecool it if it was up there and opt for a GTiR item, or something with a bit larger capacity; 50 quid is average for a BOV, i got a forge one for 40 quid for my 200sx and it runs a peach; manifold at 250 thats a good sum; the honing?! what needs honed? mapping, yeh ill prob have to get that done for me it would seem..... though Greddy EM's regularly go for 200 quid 2nd hand.... as you say though it is nice to have a comfortable safety pillow outwith your parts budget ... prob what id do, is spend 200 firstly on body repair to make it mint, then mibbe 100 on wheels/tyres and buy the key parts ill need, then save up and buy more as i can afford em and once all the parts are ready test fit etc .... but as i live waaay up in the highlands of scotland i cant forsee there being many people around that could map my micraIan said:Depends if you fit it yourself. A head gasket could cost £150/200 for fitting... £50 seems a bit cheap for a BOV, i would rather get something more expensive thats tried and tested as not too leak.The manifold i think was around the £250 mark, and hoses arent cheap! Mapping is rather expensive.
TBH i would wait until you get closer to the 3k mark. If anything goes wrong like if the engine pops. Your stuck with a car that can't go anywhere.
