  1. 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
  2. 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

  5. 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
  6. Is this almost finalised? It’s looking great [emoji106] I’m sending you a PM Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Andy's Imola 330Ci

    The HSD are great for track, but the ride quality on the road is shocking, guess that’s the trade off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks, I can get a new one on eBay for £80 for my 330, I’ll look into it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Great work, how much did Pirtek charge may I ask? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tuning is going well, still only on low boost, 10psi, and very rich but it’s looking promising Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Been busy doing the miles, have checked head studs and all good [emoji106] Made a gauge holder, looks much better in real life, the pics make it look a bit s**tty [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Rear parking sensor removal

    With M-Sport bumper you have to remove complete bumper, it really is a very easy job, 5 minutes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. M52 manifolds & exhaust on M54 car?

    It’ll work fine. I had fitted catless headers to mine a while back. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hawks, Clubsport, Better pics.

    Looking very good, what’s the cost of these set ups guys ? I paid £1000 for my used yellowspeed, front 6 pots rear 4 pots. But yours looks better than mine in my opinion Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Turbo Charged build thread...

    Basically it’s the best of a bad situation, there’s just 2” of clearance from the mouth of the turbo to the back of the headlight, I will be getting something fabricated but it’s currently a work in progress, the mesh is just so I could get it up and running [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
