Or just put in a switch like prawn did to run on actuator pressure? Or is that too low for you Miggz
was suppose to do it but when i remembered i closed up everything already lol
so one day when i feel like opening it again ill do it
Glad to see things are getting sorted dude. Nothing worse than running into issues.
yeah dude i hate it hey! thanks bud
hows your coming along?
Was hoping to get it back this weekend but theres a delay with the shipment of the pistons
So just have to wait a while longer
That's a kak one!!! What pistons you putting in?
Decided to go with JE.
Was told this morning that they arrived yesterday afternoon so they gone to engineers for balancing. Motor should be ready by early next week and I should have her back by the weekend.
That is so awesome dude very happy for you, hope it all works out for you dude
Thanks dude. Really appreciate it man
If you need anything give me a shout dude will try me best to help
Thanks for the offer bro. Will definitely keep in touch if I need anything:icon_thumright:
so turbo is in, battery moved and WMI racetank fitted. ill take pics of how it looks in the boot soon enough lol
here is the turbo after it came back from the engineers
thats how much oil came out of just the cooler :Flush:
then on saturday night while driving to a mate our lovely road works constructors decided to dig a hole across 6 lanes of traffic without even a warning sign or lights and i hit it damaging my rims!!!
original wheels for the win!!! im sure reps would have broken into a million pieces and i would have been stuck on the side of the road like the other 6 or 7 cars that were there.
Turbo look like new!
Sh1t man harsh luck once again with the wheels this time... I still dig the colour of them. Such a pity!
Lets see pictures!!
I need to tile my garage floor :thumbsup:
Will take pictures tomorrow I promise lol
Going to the exhaust shop as well tomorrow I need more loud lol sounds like a stock car
Bwaaahahahahhahahahahahahahahha really!!! All that's happened and you want a tiled garage lmao that's funny
We all know loud = more speed:thumbsup: But I'm with you hey, I want to do the same. Car is way to quiet
so took resinator out..... no difference lol car did not get louder hahahaha
but took 2 quick pics of how the race tank and the battery sits
yes i know there are wires open and bla bla but still busy with removing the wires for the big sound install i had and corner that section off so i can still have some boot space
next question does anyone have a link for a t2 or t28 actuator diy for a ko4?
Your car is looking more and more ready for the track! Epic dude...
So your exhaust didn't get any louder? How many boxes/ resonators are you running now?
And what is this DIY you speak of? Stiffer actuator for for the k04?
dude, just buy an actuator.
Get yours off, cut of off the bracket,and all will become very clear Cut the arm off yours and weld it to the arm on the new one at the right length.
the actuator itself should be able to just be drilled and bolted to the stock bracket after you cut the old one off, proper easy job.
Yeah thanks nick was looking last night how to do it, made this post before I spoke to you
ok so got stuck in this week with my car trying to get it ready for track day on sunday!
1st up was doing a actuator upgrade, thanks to dan and nick for the info on it, thanks to sidey for having one and thanks to gizmo for forcing me to do it lol
this is a 14psi t28 actuator
so started cutting the old actuator off to get the bracket to use for the new actuator
now the t28 actuator is shorter then the k04 one so had to extend it
test fit on my spare k04
it def feels better and holds boost for longer with out having that uncontrolled spike
next up was boost leak test (thanks to gizmo once again)
and so much of fail when i did this, system could not hold more then 0.6bar without finding leaks everywhere
tip was leaking
3 leaks in the welds on the boost pipes
map sensor leaking
tappit cover leaking
fixed up all the welds
then i took map sensor out and retapped and actually used proper bolts and not self tappers like the people that made the boost pipes
then nick was too kind to send me this little box that was packed so well i needed a electronic saw to cut it open lol
lol he even gave me 5p in change hahahahha
next was replacing oem tappet cover gasket and repairing the leak on the oil return line from turbo
made my new tip
been having issues with my catchcan as its not catching the oil as it should its just going straight out the other side lol so did an experiment to see how it works
made the inlet stick out furtherr then the outlet
then put a wall of sponge to "filter" it
im busy spraying my porsche twist track wheels white with plastidip, will finish up with them tonight
thats it for now!
people to thank!
gizmo (tiaan )
sidey ( shaun )
Nice progress bud, hope she pulls proper and strong on track sunday!
Damm dude you have not been having much luck with your car. Gald to see you are on top of it and sorting it out :thumbsup:
Here is to no more issues
Loking awesome mate!
are you on actuator pressure only with the new actuator on there? or have you tried using full boost too? Does it still control it OK? or has it upped the boost over all?
thanks dude tested last night against a k26 8l a3 last night and gave it a good hiding car feels very strong but at in 4th at 5700rpm it felt like it pulled back, could be the coil pack wiring screwing me around or it was pulling timing
thanks james!!!! even me i hope so
Top stuff bro. Glad to see things being sorted.
im back on full boost have not tried just actuator pressure yet will try it tonight
it does not spike or anything and it holds boost so smoothly
Awesome!!! Soooooooo happy she is running better.
Awesome stuff Miggz!
