  1. Turbo Charged build thread...

    Well it’s back, and not all is great. The HX35 Holset just can’t flow enough air through the exhaust turbine to keep up with the engine. So for now it’s time to use the car for a while. These numbers do not tell the whole storey, the power curve was just ridiculous at 2bar peak boost, and as revs climb boost just dropped off. Boost has been turned down for now to a peak of 1.5bar dropping off to 1.2bar A new Precision 6266 Turbo has been ordered and will be fitted at some point later this year, and then 600hp will be achievable with a superb power band.

    And for those wanting to do the ICV delete themselves using tunerpro, here are all the tables and values you’ll need. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Mate your gonna hate me, I binned mine 2 weeks ago [emoji24] removed then when installing the intercooler. I’m so sorry you could of had them for free Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. BMW 330ci clubsport help?

    Has the correct trim, rarer Clubsport interior, silver bevels, kick plates too. Big give away is the steering rack should have a purple tag, and the engine undertray is lower than a standard one and has CS embossed on it [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Turbo Charged build thread...

    There’s been a load of further updates, now running N55 coil packs. Air filter has been installed and located in the bumper where the brake duct used to be. Dump valve has been relocated hot side of the intercooler as was causing too much turbulence as it was too close to the MAF sensor. IAT sensor has also been relocated as was suffering heat soak and not reading accurately. All issues addressed, it’s been dropped off for final tuning. Updates to follow next week [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Still mapping [emoji22] but the exhaust is now sounding superb And gives me some noise level options Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Turbo Charged build thread...

    At 10psi I had 4 leaks that didn’t show on any smoke tests I had performed. These have now all been fixed, just silly things like a clamp not being tight enough, a couple of bolts were letting air past through threads etc. So now I’m currently back to wastegate spring selections and continued road testing and mapping. The end is hopefully in sight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Turbo Charged build thread...

    Still mapping, still fixing teething issues. Boost keeps dropping off at high RPM, I’m battling 2 issues, high exhaust manifold pressure caused but the turbo being a tad too small, normally wouldn’t be an issue, but as the wastegate is so large the force applied on it is greater and is getting forced open. So in an attempt to combat this I’ve had another exhaust system made. It’s not helped at all lol. So made a test rig up that clamps to the front of the Turbo to pressure test the entire intake system fully. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Turbo Charged build thread...

    It’s been a challenging few weeks, wet roads, snow roads, salted road etc have all hampered progress. But finally upto 22psi, but it’s not been easy. Have had wastegate issues, and a very hard to diagnose lean condition. Wastegate now starts to open on a bench test at... After a number of smoke tests which none of flagged any issues, a high pressure smoke test finally found an issue The block off bungs I had installed had not sealed, so each time I was closing the throttle at high RPM un-metered air was being sucked in and causing the car to lean out and occasionally stall [emoji849] Hope this is fixed now, but need some dry roads to fully test, at 22psi this thing will spin the tyres in 3rd gear pretty easily on a dry road [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
