(skip ahead to hear that turbo)



If your setup sounds anything like that, oh man, I'll be in love.

Had to order a new spring for the TiAL wastegate......

I guess she blew a gasket the other day..... too much boost.
The spring that comes w/ the wastegate is 1 bar (aprox 14psi) too much boost.

So I ordered a .4 and .5 to try for normal city driving, and a .7 for the track.

are you only running 10 psi because that is all that the stock manifolds and stuff can handle? or did you have to upgrade to get it to be able to even take 10 psi?

I've had Black Magic for the past few days while Knight Fire is in for some basic maintaince.

She'* only boosting 1-2psi because she'* not completely done yet, but you can still feel a little bit of power.

The turbo creates a huge amount of heat under the hood, infact the hood is really hot to the touch above the turbo even after a short drive.

But her growl is gone..... replaced by a 'whoose' of the turbo. She'* not even 1/3 as loud as she used to be.
