    I agree now, the end of the caliper sits at 40.8, but the '0' sits at 43.8..

    Nice work mate, are you even going to get a chance to see a difference with the Mani and inlet cam before you rip it all to bits for the bigger blower goes on

    This is all moving so fast ;)

    Cam went in on the weekend, mani should be going on tonight. Blower won't be for a couple of weeks really, by the time all parts are gathered and sorted.

    To be fair, you are 1/2 blind.

    Didn't get the part number.

    In other news, I have sourced some 630's for the new turbo :rock:

    All over the place.
    It comes from selling other parts, some money I had saved for changing the car (which I'm doing, in a way) and the bits that I really want impulsively go on the credit card. 0% ftw. Anyway, pretty sure I saw a picture of a massive collection of parts you had?

    The only additional cost on top of what I hope to recoup for the turbo change will the injectors as everything else should get covered.
    Inlet mani was cheap to do, and I should be able to sell the S3 one on.

    I was foolish giving this man a tab. I don't charge him a lot as I feel sorry for his general downyness.

    Coming from the man that tried to do a burnout in his S2000 but left the handbrake on and ended up smoking the clutch not the tyres

    You surely had me confused last night. I'd concluded someone sold you a plain ole 1.8T cam. But the new pix show the dimensions you'd expect. Deduct the 36mm base circle dimension to find actual lift.

    As you can see, mani was fitted Friday evening.

    Car pulls really really well all the way to 7k now, with a noticeable increase in performance higher in the revs.

    A little video on a racetrack I found near to me :whistle2: Excuse the quality towards the end, another car was on the racing line.

    That was only 80 miles after I'd put £25 of V-power in, with what I would class as pretty sensible driving

    It likes fuel, a lot.

    Now if Karl's man maths in Staceys thread are to be believed, you can get a slight increase in comp ratio by using an N/A head gasket instead of a 1.8t gasket.

    The question is, will I actually notice a supposed .35 increase in comp, and fo I really need it? I know comp ratio is seen as the way to really push the k04, but as you get into bigger turbo's it becomes less important as it'll run more boost. Opinions?

    higher comp in badgerwagen 9.5:1 on its hybrid gt35

    its less reliant on turbo spool and boost for response which is why I built this engine that way. Last one was 8.5:1
    more torque earlier on this one

    Forget the comp rating mate. I was told 300bhp wouldn't be possible with BAM pistons due to the CR :ninja:

    If you're sticking with the K04 you're going to max it's flow capabilities before you need to worry about CR.

    Interesting, and as I guess they are probably the same price I don't really have anything to lose. I like the sound of more torque as well.

    I'm not mate. Garrett bits are already being collected.

    I have found the limits of my K04. About 234 g/s. Won't flow anymore really, probably would with a refurb but not a lot of point.

    Don't forget it, Westys car WOULD be better with 9.5:1 than it is at 9:1, it's an unquestionable fact :)

    Not that it's not still fantastic, but 9.5:1 would be better. It's an increase in efficiency, in it's simplest form.

    forget overall power figures.
    yes it can only flow so much.

    but

    less lag, more torque, more responsive.

    there are no downsides. and an N/A gasket is like 20 quid. theres no reason not to

    You're getting almost as bad as prawn with regards to bigging up comp ratio's now!

    N/A gasket is added to the list.

    Until I see evidence to the contrary I will continue to big up the high CR crew!

    AGU engines make higher figures time and time again compared to their low CR counterparts.

    Lower compression is only ever desirable if you're running into DET, which doesn't happen at our lowly levels with a decent tune.

    I think Dan's new hybrid lump is running AGU pistons too, and he's getting no CF's at all at 286g/s or flow, so why would you ever go lower?
