Breathing life back into this thread and hopefully my seemingly gutless abb....

Iím getting all the bits together for this conversion and am pretty much there now but would appreciate any pointers possible for the airbox to turbine induction pipe/fittings and whatís worked for you?

Iíve got the old style cylindrical air filter in the barrel type air box and would like to keep as Ďstockí as standard if possible.

The van came with a piper filter and I was glad to get back to standard and away from the roar of the Ďupgradeí

Am I right in assuming I need to get from 70mm from the airbox to 50mm at the turbo flange through a couple of bends in the process?

I only intend running at 0.6 boost so hoping to avoid an inter cooler if possible.

Any pointers from your induction setup/experience?

Cheers

If you have the original pipework from the donor you should find that you can use a mix of the aab airbox and a combination of the pipework from both. That's how mine works anyway.

Good afternoon everyone

sorry i havn't been on here for a while i've been busy this year with the Business & Dragons Den - https://youtu.be/8PxE0bQX_ww



You shold be able to run 1bar boost with no intercooler and no major issues , if your getting loads of smoke at 0.6bar you need to turn the fueling down or increase the boost to burn the excess fuel .

Fuel feeds boost but if your on STANDARD wastegate pressure you will only get 0.6bar max no matter how much you increase the fuel and the EGT's will increase due to the excess fuel.

Fit a manual boost controller for £10 to increase the boost

Thatís helpful, Iíd wound the wastegate rod pretty much to the end of the thread without any obvious variance.

One other noticeable issue is juddering at low revs, Iím enjoying the improved Ďpullí but find the van needs far more work through the lower gears when driving round town.

Any link to the above/fuelling?
