Gilbz, I'm not interested in the turbo, or the bathroom scales any more ............................ PLEASE JUST TELL US WHAT COLOUR YOU ARE GOING TO PAINT THE BL00DY WHEELS :jmpg:jmpg:jmpg:jmpg:jmpg
Considering I don't come on here that often I seem to have acquired a strange reputation LOL:I remember the picture with the scales....and I quite literally lashed out loud.
I know the feeling bud!Yes bud I know. I follow you on Facebook. I've also promised myself a run down to santa pod, all because of the racing you do, that I've been following...ok, so now I sound like I'm a stalker...I promise I'm not. Lol
I know the feeling bud!
I've been collecting my turbo stuff for 5 years like I said. I've read through these pages so many times, watched Brooksters videos more than I like to admit.
I feel I know the guy on a personal level.
What makes me have a little chuckle is when Brookster is going through his turbo conversion on the video. He says 'as you can see' quite a few times.
When I watch car programmes they use this phrase all the time so it's reassuring we're being educated by a person who has a mass of knowledge :ILU:T:A:
LOL:Sorry Gilbz, did not want to get you some sort of weird reputation; but we seem to be lacking 'real characters' on here.
Interesting point about the 'as you can see' syndrome Don't think I said that too much when I was presenting on Granada Sky ................... must play back some old programme episodes and double check though LOLLOL:
Apologies to Brookster too, no disrespect to the project thread ................... it's epic, and must have encouraged many others not to give up on their 2.4 T:T:T:T:T:
Yeah that's correct but I don't have that metal fitment!Not sure what you mean gilbz... That's the pipe that runs to the waste gate right??? If so, then it looks right to me, as all you need to do is put the pipe there?
And another from this threadBeen for a test drive and the van now pulls like a train , 0.5bar max at the moment and EGT's are below 500deg C. *<>
Hope this helpsT:One item that helps when fitting the Turbo conversion is the installation of a Boost Gauge but also a EGT Sensor and Gauge to monitor the Exhaust gas temperature .
The max temp should not be above 720 deg C , anything above that and yo fuel maybe too high or your timing is retarded too much .
It does help when fitting 155bar injectors to advance the timing 2 deg .
