I've tied it to the chassis here and it's pretty secure nowPaul please make a simple bracket to support the weight of that MAF and give your TB hose a break
I honestly believe it will help no end, especially at Blyton where its quite rough on the old surface
dunno. it came as 10psi and I'd like to keep it at this safe proven level, don't fancy ruining the turbo.What is the maximum safe boost levels to a t28 hybrid
This sound like the performance I want. Safe levels at around 10psidunno. it came as 10psi and I'd like to keep it at this safe proven level, don't fancy ruining the turbo.
for optimum operating range, I've read it's recommended to look up the compressor chart of the turbo for the sweet spot.
too low and it'll be inefficient, sluggish and under-used.
too high and efficiency plummets and just heats the air with no further benefit causing more issues and wears it out faster.
a-ha I think I've found my turbo off this website.according to the original turbo kit ebay listing it says T2/T28 garrett hybrid.
a T2 compressor end with a T28 exhaust end.
yup turbo works for now, tis good to finally find an affordable source for a new fresh turbo if it decided to fail or I felt like impulse buying once income improvesDidn't realise how different the T2 exhaust flange was to a T28... why not make them all the same bolt pattern :/
Either way Paul.. your turbo works well
Also on the pedals. I have an interesting development that may or may not have some physical form during your visit you can ponder over
and their pdf catalogue saysThe S116 utilises the standard T2 unit but is supplied with a larger compressor wheel and housing, to increase power, and is matched to a larger turbine housing which will increase flow, with minimal effecting on spool up times. A fully screwed down 270 degree thrust bearing is used, enabling higher boost applications, while helping to keep costs down. The unit comes supplied with a dynamic seal to help improve response, and an uprated actuator means this unit will safely run up to 13PSI. With minimal engine and fuel modifications, this turbo will flow enough for up to 150BHP maximum.
Lol my t2 is still boosting with 3mm+- play on the shaft... I call my turbo... "The Grenade"found my turbo spec.
remember my actuator plate said turbo technics part # S116
and on their website its a S116 Renault 5 GT Turbo Stage 1
View attachment 35913
and their pdf catalogue says
Renault 5 GT turbo stage 1 hybrid
T2 with 60 trim / 0.47
rated 130-150bhp (so I'm running at it's limit)
Impulse buys are my weak pointyup turbo works for now, tis good to finally find an affordable source for a new fresh turbo if it decided to fail or I felt like impulse buying once income improves
ooh always looking forward to ur surprises when I pop over.
I just brought afew things off chris recently while he's breaking his 4 k11, including all the pedals, non-abs brake servo & pipes, ht leads, bonnet hinge & hub/strut nuts
according to alexias post it may snow in Nov? it better not during our trackday although it's getting chilly now :/
see ya on saturday with new tyres.Impulse buys are my weak point
Hopefully I have something mocked up for you to look at. Like you say there's always something here
Yes apparently so. And heavy snowfall at that but people have noticed its near on identical released the same day as last year
There's always next year, even the refresh of the injectors is a step in the right direction ready for next years summersee ya on saturday with new tyres.
bah I was hoping to get to push this new stronger setup this year on a dry hot track. goodbye summer
she had a chance at cadwell but literally "blew it" under pressure (getit )
