Just sitting here, waiting on my customer to get out of finance..When he’s done, It won’t be that much longer before I’m gone today..
That wastegate is supposed to show up today. I’m actually almost Jonesing to get it bolted back into that s tube, and do the pressure test..And hope that it holds pressure. Then mount it.
Then not be able to drive it for a week...Coldfront coming in tonight.
it was 70 on mon, 70 on tues, 70 on wed.
It’s raining and 65 today..
Tomorrow through.......fck.....the next ten days....it’s either rain, or like 45 for the high..
It may as well be Dung Fao...( For all the names these cameras are coming under..they all seem similar to me...Actually I think the name was Asko...maybe... ) The Amazon camera had the most bang for the buck. It came with two batteries, a waterproof case, a wrist band remote, and several mounting solutions.I guess you're not getting the ice storm we had overnight here. Actually at one point a Thunder Freezing rain storm @ 4 this morning. Luckily, we were just south of the freeze line. The trees got about 1/4" of ice on them but the roads this morning were clear.
So what brand of faux Pro did you buy? I was looking last night at Amazon...one that has decent reviews AND has an external mic would be good. I'm looking at Amazon and got a headache because they all have names like Zumee, or Blubee and look the same but the specs are all the place. I got a headache and went to bed.
it’s 469.00 direct from a turbosmart dealer, turbosmart.This one is for sure turbosmart? Can you lap the seat with some valve lapping compound? Hell at this point just buy the cheapest Chinese one you can find and see if it leaks
Yes...I’m positive that neither the first, or the new one are Chinee...It’s the seat/flange.Hmm, exhaust valves don't need heat to seal. Are you certain you didn't get another Chinese copy of a turbosmart gate? I'm certain the one I bought is Chinese so I guess I need to see how bad it leaks.
I have no idea. The Hot Rod Lincoln engine is going to be my first turbocharged engine that I've ever owned, and only my second time dealing with an aftermarket turbo.But what do I know just ask matt (I think I'll refer to him as 'mutt' from now on.)
I drove the car home slowly back then. Comparatively, it was a 350 hp stock headed windsor. The plan for the monster is to drive it as fast as it will go up to 7000 rpm. A cold, potentially wet road isn’t the best place to be trying that.And no drive yet? You drove a Mach 1 on slicks in the winter in Counciltucky.... Get out there and see what’s what, just watch out for the garage door frame.

OEM turbo setups from BMW and Hyundai just... work... for the most part (the N20 from BMW is the only thing I've replaced a turbo on in the 13 months I've been there).
This kind of ish is why I lurk in Mike's threads so much, so I can get me some learnin' done.
