...boost control once mapped properly
Do I need the 0.8 bar actuater tuffty and get rid of the standered one
Can the actuater be fit with turbo on car or when I'd everything else Christmas time
Based on past experiences with hybrids you should fit a 0.8bar actuator and ideally have the wastegate ported to prevent boost creep which seems inherent on these turbos...
There is no need to fit it right now as this will give you more boost which you currently don't need and you can leave it until you have the rest of the hardware in place and are ready for mapping...
Thanks pal leave it how it is for now then and the wastgate is ported pal I tuck some photos if u want to see them
Well as for my hybrid build iv bought a few bits.
as well as that iv been to Rs tuning Friday and had a chat with Paul
very helpfull had it smoke tested and straight away **** loads of smoke came out of the intake pipe at the bottom where the reducer meets the turbo apart from that no other leaks he did try it again after and there was only a bit of smoke don't get it.
Next he put it on the dyno and wow did I craped my pants when it got going but then the trouble started one side of the car was pulling to one side wich he said don't think one of ya brakes are working So straped her down then the surge started and Paul said cannot push her anymore it's not safe so packed up and had a look at the map I had on it.
well what a pile of **** loads of boost no added fuel and or timming 13.5 lambda and lots of other **** and he said no wonder it's surging like that.
Paul advised me to put it on a standered map till I get it mapped in a few week standered is bab but safe full boost holds at 12 psi runs nice as well 210 bhp wooooo.
