talking of wheels, took my minilites off for a thorough clean and put my banter winter wheels on, big banterrrrrrrr, looks stupid on thin and high wheels!
Indeed it isDude that's a precision peice of kit... Which is new... and ur taking it apart.. wtf. Please tell me that ur not rotating the shaft oil free as well. Also without sounding terrible t25 isn't all that big. Its probs a really good size for the micra. I shall be following you in to the realms of t25
Ohhh I see. Good man. Yeah I suppose room wise its big ish. Yeah t25 is the next step for me. I will let you know how it boosts compared to the t2Indeed it is
Well it was completely rotated the wrong way for the way I plan on making the manifold... so as least now it will just be a small adjustment rather than a huge one.
No I'm not rotating the shaft I'm simply rotating the core of the turbo so the oil lines are correct...
Need to find me a way of plumbing some nice coolant lines to it too.
It is pretty huge against millie mate me and chloe were under the bonnet and thinking DAMN we need to make room for this haha.
Before I rotated the oil lines were horizontal now lovely and vertical.Ohhh I see. Good man. Yeah I suppose room wise its big ish. Yeah t25 is the next step for me. I will let you know how it boosts compared to the t2
Well the car isn't going to be used for track days I just want to be able to hold my own against other faster cars... get millie to pick up her skirt and run so to speak.Might be a bit late in the rev range you will pick up boost. But when you do it will hit hard . if my understanding is correct and I haven't forgotten the numbers
wiring it shut stops any boost creep tom, because as you can see the actuator starts to move before the desired boost level is achieved (unless you have a sophisticated boost controller)My understanding was that the wastegate regulated the pressure when your off boost? So with yours wired shut I'm guessing this stopped lag time?
I kind of want to extend its life lol ill still be venting it don't want to weld up a new oneThe excess boost will surge through the turbo BTW tom. But due to the larger nature of the turbo and the low boost produced. It won't be too critical.. If anything I would still vent it and do it properly. Saving the turbo and extending the life.
