The turbos look too small lol !


Yes, but low torgue is much better now!  ;D

puuhapete

Ready to install.

No problems as yet.


Tomorrow we go to Jyväskylä and enjoy the rally. N.O.R.F. I hope your country drivers succeed and glory.

Dave


Wow you're getting on with this!

Top job  ;D

Be back on the road in a matter of days at this pace!

Good work!!!
Show us a road movies where you make some liquorice!  :wacko:

Thank you guys. Close to already have that can be run.

I like it Pete  ;D

Currently I am doing what you have done with your air filter intakes.

Once I have done that the engine can go back in.

Sucking air from outside the engine bay should make a difference.

The last dyno work I did I monitored it all.

Ambient was 26 c, yet as you progressed through the power run the intake air at the filters hit over 40 c.
Turbo discharge temp increased temp by an even higher percentage.
The intercooler was good enough to get it back down to normal so actual air intake looked o.k.

However the chain (filter intake to cooler) shows a big problem that will hold the turbo's back & loose efficency.

That's why I am attacking my car with the grinder & going to suck in my air from the bottom of the bumper.

Will look just like yours. Top job mate! :mellow:



Dave

puuhapete

Yes, this is sometimes to think about and the best way is to put the air intake below the bumper behind the headlights, because there is plenty of room for the filter and the engine room of the heat is not there.
The box around the air cleaner I have to be even better. Sand accumulates in there quite a lot.
I have to clean them several times.
I hope that you understood that what I'm trying to tell you.

Thanks for all the comments. =)

Dave

Your english is fine mate I understand & agree.

A basic mistake by a lot of people & tuners.

The turbo sucks in hot air that is already expanded so low in density, when it compresses it the air gets even hotter then the cooler does it job.

You may get good intake temps after the cooler but the turbo compressor will be struggling & will not be able to match it's expected compressor map as the intake air temp is way beyond the STD for the map.

Most but not all maps are based on around 20 degree C intake temp.

= big pressure loss, bad efficiency, low power outputs & disappointment!

Setback yesterday. The radiator is leaking end = poor welding thank you "techWeld" soldering experiment. Fix it now, tig welding.
In addition, interior cools the leak. It needs to be replaced, now I put the u-tube hoses that go between the inside. =)
Opel TRW1 electro-hydraulic power steering pump worked fine.
TRW sound electric forklift  ;D

Dave

Sounds an easy job to fix for man of your talents.

The steering is noisy, don't you think it will annoy you after a few miles?

Yep, I am the actual Bob the Builder  ;D
I drive a few hundred meters and the power steering is no sound anymore, because the engine as a powerful voice to win.

FoMoCo Track Day Ahvenisto weekend behind. Settling in driving the motor. All worked perfectly. Smiles are not run out yet. I like that myself engine. Torque and power is sufficient.
Event photos here, but I have not filmed.

Headgasket dead passenger side. Maybe knock to boost. Shit lucky.

3 door 4x4

That's bad luck  :'( :'( :'(

I'm sure you'll have it fixed soon...

Bob the builder, can we fix it?
Bob the builder, yes we can!

It has risen from the dead. I make 1.0mm x 0,6mm groove in block and i put in steel wire there. Normal head gasket up.
First I made tool what I did manage to block the grooves.

Looks good. Lets hope the gasket holds this time.

Maybe the old head gasket patent better than a bag of new ones. Let's hope the hard

Dave

I thought you had already done this Pete?

You will not have anymore trouble with head gasket now.  :mellow:

I love the fact you made your own tool, very BOB the builder mate  ;D


Simple head lift you can see water has entered the cylinders & cleaned your pistons up nicely!

earlier groove block and cu rings and the masses, now assembly Navaline with loose steel rings,  three nails and masses, but i dont no why go wrong. But maybe this road is right.   

whiteestate

By looking at the picture you see there is not much meat where the gasket failed that looks like a weak spot the 12v engines as Dave knows always suffers due to the poor head designs and low clamping forces !
Glad your working it through top job

Thank you.
Here's how it surely is, then. I look forward to the future Saturday because the cars power measurement event at the time. I do not expect any big nothing, but I'm involved. Perhaps of more than 500 hp will anyway ..
The car is working well and drive it to work every day.

This today then?

Best of luck Pete, big numbers I hope ;D

Certainly be on here later to see how you have done.  :mellow:
Dave

puuhapete

Yes, today.
But big horse power waiting again. Maybe exhaust pressure braking this.
Boost is now 1.8bar



and shoot out video.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UUr76Ng_WM&feature=youtu.be

With 500 hp and 711 nm you got a start.

Dam why don't this make high numbers???  :rolleyes:

So 498bhp / 525 ft/lbs on 26 psi.


What turbo's you got on it & what fuel was it?
