Hows yours coming along ??

Quote from: Dave on February 19, 2014, 21:36:25 PMOn a turbo car the turbo is what dictates the character of the engine, people talk about compression, cams, inlets etc etc but the turbo will have the biggest effect on how the engine performs. So the turbo choice is critical!A GT2860RS is no good for a 24v by the way, your looking at something like a GT3582 or similar. But again it depends what you want from the install as to what turbo to choose.So mods to get the right turbo to fit are well worth it!What ever it makes on the dyno I will tell tom just to set power to around 350bhp no more so I'm not looking for big numbers just a good engine that picks up when you give it a boot full , just like it did before doing a piston !!Quote from: v6gerry on February 19, 2014, 20:47:40 PMThanks for that input Dave yes I can see where your coming from , will talk it through with tom , may have to alter my inner wing to get another turbo to fit .

Quote from: Dave on February 19, 2014, 22:52:37 PMA dyno graph would be very interesting to look at because that turbo should not be able to flow the exhaust output from a 2.9 V6 at high revs.At a guess I would say it spools very early, loads of low down power then drops power as the exhaust starts to choke up.Graph would look very much like a supercharger one, which would explain why you like driving it on the road. Hi dave here is the R/Road graph from emeralds the first time it was set up .
