That turbo is turning into a right slag....
It is a bit Dave, however, I shall reform it!
I won't thrash it so much all the time, and I'll be nice to it, so as a result, it shall reform from it's slaggish ways and decide to stick with me for the remainder of it's life
Prawn get a sticker that says 'turbo slag' its a must!
It has to be done i'll cut you one if you want!
Prawn will enjoy these pix..
new BW hotside before I set to it porting (well almost.. I started then thougth doh before picture!)
Then after Porting (not hogging out, but porting. w/g size is stock, not enlarged, just flow to it ported.
The turbine on the CR1.2 unit
and for Dane.. (well it is his thread - lol)
Nice New F23
and the manifold "prettied up" bead blasted
Bill -- how's the fit here? I've machined these to fit that terrific Elizabethan collar of yours. Good? We found a bit difficult getting the early prototypes sized properly.
snug on the new ones... the early on is too tight on it.. new one in the picture.
Any idea on overall bhp and torque figures for the f23 bill?
i have an idea yes
FrankenTurbo Home for more info and specs
Wow this build is getting sexier by the day. Can't wait to see this in action.
I like those pics VERY much
Looks awesome Bill, both mine and Danes (which is infinitely more shiney!)
That reminds me, I need to PM you about a strategic dent!
Are you selling the Manifolds separately slappy?
I'd rather know first what value they provide independent of the F23. What kind of a value would they be? I don't yet know.
im interested in the manifold to!
They would provide me plenty of value, as im stuck at the moment (and have been for 18 months) so i can move on and get my car custom mapped....i will be your hybrid tester....
Why are you stuck? You don't want to simply use the stocker? I've found it works pretty well. All the dynos we have published are using it...
What turbo are you running anyway? What specs?
No i dont want to pay for custom mapping on the stock manifold.. its a cr turbo ko4 hybrid, ported wastegate, unclipped.
anyhows... anyone spot what the problem is here? (another fault found on the w/g, and why it was sticking open, sometimes and not others..)
Runs also a Phenolic insulator gasket, which has been "tufftied" into a transition gasket (smallport to largeport)
Also, a couple of hoses for DV and N75 have been replaced for Forge silicon ones, as what was on there was splitting.
New oil filler cap ordered, new N75 fitted, fluided up, dogbone bushed... Just waiting for the new larger AH FMIC core to arrive. (the one which should be come AH's std S3 offering thereafter) - tests will be done of course to see p_drop etc etc
Yikes! thats terrible isn't it!
Thanks for the other bits Bill - I knew if I left the oil filler cap long enough something would present itself.
Have you heard anything from AH fabs?
I can't wait
Bill/Dane does that mean that Tuffty's old AH core is now available again?
I bet you are hopping from one foot to the other rubbing your hands with glee....
Good spot their Bill, that explains a lot.
You knows it, I think I'm on my bike the next few days though. Lol
when did you guys decide to get a bigger FMIC core again? i thought you were happily using Pauls old one still?
Neil: probably not no - sorry
AH may be doing something with it... which tuffty might hear from them about in a day or so..
They may stick it on ebay to sell it on - possibly
I sent an email to AHfab using their web site to buy the first edition of the intercooler, but they don't answer to the emails, do you know how to contact them????
By phone works for me...
Ok but I'm in Portugal e-mail is much more cheaper....
Is the shaft worn on the wastegsate then or is it missing some circlips...
Cheap ass hotside by the looks... the KKK hotside has a crimp at the top... the franken looks much better too tbh... no circlips or owt on these it seems...
ill be checking my bleeder tomoz then.....getting tempted by this franken as the days go buy....
Should be interesting to see how it performs
If your hotside had inserts to bolt up to the mani rather than threads straight in the hotside then chances are its a KKK one and all should be good...
Alex is a bit rubbish at replying tbh... I have sent him a couple in the past and had to chase over the phone... keep at it, I am sure he will get around to answering
nothing missing.. its not been on long enough to wear! faulty out of the box.
Pretty poor then for the labour time/cost it takes to get them off and on, just checked mine and there is no play...
mines got nutserts
waiting on arrival of AH fmic currently.
not going to be today as hoped..
Saturday (so say!) - dissapointing
I'm now waiting on the results of this too
Saturday... bummer, did they give a reason?
Cheers for the update Bill saves me giving you a call when your busy
I guess this means it's unlikely that I'll be seeing Dane on Sunday if he is still carless!
AH fabs have made prawn sad
Oh he does have a car ;P
