It makes a bit of a rumble while driving around now, mainly cause of the header. With the new piping I noticed the tone got quieter and deeper. At idle the car's almost silent. All you can hear are the fans going, the injectors ticking, and a bit of rumble in the muffler.it probably sounds like this.
just like mine.
how's it pull now? i have EXACTLY the same setup you had with the awful minnam d/p. it spools, but SLOWLY, and it's only gonna get worse when i add the FMIC.
and, what do you think about that nasty compressor housing?! way to ruin that with the 90 degree elbow welded on there. i've been real close to machining that off so that i can have more options.
The header's 1" tubes going to what looks like a 2" collector. I decided to go with 2.25" up and down pipe tubing. My ultimate goal is to build the other engine I have for a nice 15 lbs, so this piping will still be adaquate for that.reason is spools slow is minnam uses a 2.5" uppipe. you really need to use a 2". It will make the turbo hit full boost almost 700rpm faster.
Oh OK. My turbo still appears to be clock-able, which is actually something that will eventually need to be done as well, but everything still fit back in for the time being.no, sorry.
the 90 degree elbow on the compressor inlet... you know, most compressor inlets are straight in... yours and mine have the 90^ elbow welded to them, so that it has to be clocked in only one position.
i divorced/externally dumped my tial w/g last winter when i replaced the deltagateII. it was mounted backwards, with the exhaust flow BEHIND the valve, dumping into the w/g. was awkward and ugly, so i just cut off the recirc portion, TIG's a patch over the hole, and used the piece i cut off for an external dump.
it's my automatic hooptie exhaust mod now. make no mistake folks, externally dumped gates are LOUD!!!
mine starts cracking about 1psi in the lower gears, then i'll see 6 psi in 4th and 5th. i just picked up some tubing to plumb in an EBC to be controlled by my haltech ecu. 8^) hoping to fiddle with that some later this week. 8^)
really nice work, btw. loving it. keep it up.
