    I wanted to start a thread about my car to get some opinions about it, feel free to say anything you like about the car.
    I'll also make this thread to a little project.
    And I'm sorry for the spelling!

    Here's the picture from the ad, bought it 2 days later, june 6th -08.

    Then it became winter and the ice came!

    Then the turbo gave up, so I decided I would go a bit further with the project and this is now, she's quite sad:sorry:

    New turbo, manifold, VR6 throttle, 3" downpipe, FMIC. And there will be some other small things as well.

    Thank you, love your car as well!

    Yes, he's a very good photographer!

    Can't afford that, and it's an all day car so it would be much work to change engine every year. :)

    I bought a quite cheap turbo just to try if it will hold up. And the VR6 tb is bigger than the stock one.

    Exacly!

    Pics of those parts.

    looks good, what A/R or trim is it?
    reason I ask about the TB is that the general consensus from people running much larger turbos (GT35 etc) at very high power (500bhp+) is that the Throttle body makes little difference in power output.
    there are much more restrictive aspects of the inlet tract than the throttle body.

    I would send you a link to a very interesting trhead but the search function on Vortex is down.

    I'm sorry but you will have to excuse me.
    But what do A/R mean?
    And I'm not really sure what you mean about " much more restrictive aspects of the inlet tract".
    But the maf will be modified to 3,5", it will be a new air filter and the piping to and from fmic will be all new also, the intake manifold will be just a little bit modified to match the tb better.
    Again, sorry for my english.

    Love it.

    It looks spot on. Subtle but different without being too much.

    Mine still is and will still be a all day car (when the engine is running again ofc), but I always find new things to do. But who said everyday cars couldn't be fun?:whistle2:

    the A/R gives the ratio of the turbine/compressor wheels to the housing and gives an indication to the flow capability of the turbo. usually expressed as a decimal less than 1.0
    i.e GT2860 turbine (exhaust) A/R 0.56

    the restrictive bit was about the inlet system as a whole. Excluding the MAF as that needs to be bigger to feed the turbo, but there no point having a huge 3.5" throttle body if your intercooler outlet pipe or any I/C tubing is 2.5" or smaller than the TB.
    your most restrictive point is where your pressure and limitations will be.

    Okey! 0,63 A/R.
    Well, the IC tubing will be the smalles part, but I got the tb free, so I don't loose anything to use it.

    Thank you :sm4: That's nice, have you mounted the led's yet?
    I didn't buy it from ebay, but it is a cheap turbo, so this is most to learn how to build. But I think the turbo will work, I'm not plannin any huge hp.

    that looks like an eBay chinese stainless special.
    I bought one a whie back but they had cunningly photographed it so as not to show the dreadful welding under the merge collector.
    wil do the job if you can get it checked over and stop it cracking.

    Ok! I just gave it to a welder to weld on a T25, and I asked him to check all the welds when he was on it. :sm4:

    So I got the manifold from my neighbour today, he replaced the T3 with a T25. I also tested how it would look with the new wastegate on. I'll mount the head tomorrow.

    And I will adjust the boost with this.

    It's not ugly, just not different ;) Thanks by the way!

    I don't have the tuning on yet. I couldn't afford the rest for the moment, I'll start with it again sometime at the winter.:unsure:

    My car the day after the accident (no one got hurt).
    [​IMG]

    Stripped it down, it wasn't so bad.
    [​IMG]

    New and fresh.
    [​IMG]
