I'm getting really bloody confused with al this turbo nonsense and could really do someone pointing me in the right direction.
Jabba are telling me they use a VF34.20 on their conversions which should be the turbo fitted to the black car that I've just killed. According to Jabba, they run at 1.6bar and are very (cough) reliable! only caused to fail by running aftermarket dv's.
Cue TD05.....ok, so I have a TD05 16g which I'm going to convert (well I'm not, Andy Forrest is) to front entry and is exactly the same size as the VF34. Ideally, I'd like to run this as an 18g but I don't know if this will fit as the housing is larger.
Jabba have said they couldn't get the TD05 to work as well as the VF34 unless it ran loads of boost (as if 1.6bar is low!) but I have conflicting reports from other people saying the TD05 will still spool quickly and make the same power as the VF34.20 even in 16g form.
I've spoken to Bill (Badger5) and got his input so can anyone else add some reliable info to this as we (I mean Bill) are only going to do this ONCE as funds aren't bottomless and don't know whether I'm keeping the black car which puts the rods on hold for now.
