    Right!

    So plans are a foot!

    Bill has sourced me a large port head because he's good like that, which will shortly be refreshed and made ready to go on.

    Bill also has a Frankenturbo k04 hybrid sitting on the side with no car to try it out on. So it is destined for my car, the Cr hybrid will be taken off, the new hotside will be put on to cure the need for the stiff as hell actuator and associated problems and I've found a willing buyer :eyebrows: Can't wait for the outcome of that...

    In The Cr hybrids stead will be the Frankenturbo K04 hybrid (I think its called an F23) I'm not too sure if anyones really used one in this country but it'll very interesting to see how the two compare. It'll be given the best chance with the big port, exhaust mani and WMI which will be turned up so it's not starting at 9 psi - as it is I destroy water meth so easily! and if Welly can last a week so can I :)

    Yep, it gives Bill something to test the f23 on and letting Bill use my car in the past has worked pretty well for me :)

    That turbo it's from slappy_dunbar, I was just waiting for that, because Bill and slappy do talk a lot about turbo stuff... I hope it works good because I also want to buy a hybrid.

    What capacity are your nozzles for the w/m? The fellow here in the States running an F23 had started with 225s on either side of the throttle. We then upped to 375s but he feels the ecu is struggling to deliver a proper fuel mix. So now we're back to fiddling with it again. This time it'll be 375cc upstream with a 225 after the TB.

    It's the middle size nozzle from the aem kit but I don't know the cc size, Bill will. Were using one nozzle sounds like your using 2?

    Its located in the post fmic piping here
