Ok ok, you're all right.
bet he's not 24psi @ turbo!!!! AND, given you made the comparison earlier between 2 std k04's, his is a HYBRID!!!!
muchos pressure drop I predict on multiple intercoolers- turbo working well past 2bar I predict if checked. (32psi is my guess)
instead of fixating on just one thing.. temps - consider flow.. and pressure..
Flow makes power. Pressure pushes thru the flow.. Excessive pressure makes unwanted heat for no flow benefit.
my mantra remains "its all about the flow"
minimise losses, work things more efficiently, then heat management becomes less about dealing with the consequence, and optimising what you have got... and ultimately making more power than joe bloggs who just cranks up the boost and everything is quietly nuking itself to death.
The 3" TIP is perfect example of this approach "Efficiency in Action"
Have you thought about some aftermarket DRLs to stick on your boost pipes to act as fogs??...
Yeah I like to think that Dave's turbo is working its tiny nuts off
You're right Bill it's time for me to start enjoying the thing now. The car is running well, sounds nice, and is keeping up with other cars I didn't expect it to, I am happy, believe it or not :thumbsup:
Get a miltek... do it!
When I get home tonight I'm going to look at the possibility of getting something like this to fill the gap a bit:
BLACK PLASTIC RS4 R32 LOOK RACE MESH SUIT GRILL BUMPER on eBay (end time 29-Jul-11 14:23:56 BST)
It's not so much the lack of fogs that bother me as they never really got used. It's the bloody grate gaping holes where you can see the clamps and hoses.
I dont need a Miltek. I do however need to get my 4 pots on the car next.
Yeah you do, the noise is brilliant!
I dont need noise, I'm too old for that you young derailing boy racer My un named DP and de-cat make enough noise.
I'm a danger to myself and to society
Yay, this is it's first official outing:
Sik Paintshop Skilz
Yes blud!!!! I is wicked wot?
Fecking derailers, Sling ya ook.
I would get Jase to tidy up this thread from all your crap but it'd only be 4 pages long
Oh come on!
Lol well if it is 32 psi its doing well as its been like that well over a year /15000 miles,
I do need to check it and will at the weekend, if its anything over 3psi drop i will look at a different set up, i dont mind being wrong, im no tuner..
If the psi was that high surley the intake temps would be through the roof and the manifold on meltdown?
LOL, I would hate to see what you're like when your unhappy - lmao
nope.. with that many intercoolers, the air will come out cooler.. for sure.. The qty of air which makes it out however wont be as much, dropping pressure as it does..
and that 32psi is what Danes CR was doing on the shyte AH small core! Its not a wild arse guess.. it was sadly oh too real!
Neil you moan worse than biatch you know that . haha.
I've been a busy boy again tonight. I wasn't happy with the gaping holes left by the fog lights so I decided to have a crack at trimming down the old fog grills. I'm quite happy with the result:
I've also been out logging again..... I know, I know, I should just enjoy it but I thought I'd try Tam's AIT sensor and also see what difference the rain made to the AITs. Logs to follow
ooh eyebrows smilie...
Here they come sucker:
Right first off went for a blast with Tam's AIT sensor and got the following results. Ambient temp was 14.5 degrees and it was raining lightly:
Check out the MAF reading
I pulled over and swapped to my AIT sensor and got the following:
So safe to say the sensor is fine.
It's difficult to tell what difference the rain on the FMIC makes but I'm guessing it must be a couple of degrees.
Go and drive damn it!!!!!
Hello airflow! Nice work all round dude
Great results mate, what psi are you running now?
my logs have been aborted due to terrantial rain fall...i will try tomoz night, if not it will be the weekend,
A bit of WMI should see you close to 300..
It's peaking at 21psi Dave. I didn't want to pump the boost up too high as I only have standard rods. If I get my rods changed I can push a little more power out the old girl.
The trimmed fog grills look loads better to!
Yeah I'm happy with them. At a glance it almost looks professional
now go and enjoy it!
LOL @ Bill. Yep GO AND ENJOY!!! Looks OEM and goes very non OEM!
You are getting as bad as me.... lol
So would you not be able to fit the fogs withoutthe grilles mate? Sorry if youve already said but on iphone and its a ballache trailing frow pages.
There's no going back to the fogs. I had to hack out the brackets and clips for the pipework to fit. My attemp with the grills is as good as it will get. It definitely looks better with the grills in, the photos dont do it justice really.
What if you were able to weld reducing 45deg pipes onto the end tanks, as in cutting the pies at an angle so they are swept back from the bumper. Would you have been able to keep the fogs. Just trying to find ways of getting away with not loosing the fogs.
Not unless the end tank diameter was taken down to 60mm and you would have to use 90 degree because 45 degree would hit the back of the fogs. The core size is spot on its just the in/out is a bit too big for the fogs.
