Turbo Melted... Stage 2 in progress and more! Updated 13/11/07
Two weekends ago my ol Ko3 decided to give up and die in a rather un-spactacular way. I started the engine from cold and as far as i can tell the bearing collapsed.
As i said in a early post i was thinking of building a large turbo conversion on the cheep around the £600 all in price bracket..... Well seeing as the turbo melted it was the kick up the ass i needed to get the project going.
Around the time of my last post i found a suitable turbo:
Its a T25/28 hybrid, 28 compressor with a 25 exhaust.
Then i was deciding on a manifold to carry this nice bigger turbo. Then after a post by Billybravo and his KO series manifold from THS i looked on the THS site and they do a T25 footprint manifold for the A4 with external waste gate option :arco: So being me i looked around ebay and found THS have an online store and were selling them at £110 but i got it for £90 :icon_thumright:
So now i need to get out and rip the car apart.. to see what else i need ill keep the thread updated on how its going.
Oh and compleatly non related:
Looki what i bought off ebay very very very very very cheeply:
These are only the front seats but i have the whole interior inc center consol and other trim parts.
