I know most people perform turbo tuning with bolt-on modifications like intake, turbo, intercooler & exhaust etc for good reason.
But does anyone use traditional, internal methods like big valves, ported heads etc? How do they get on?
Understood. I was just wondering if the turbo rating took the type of engine into account, or is it just a function of the turbos in isolation - inducer diameter, mass flow capacity etc? So are the TTE1000 turbos comparable to a pair of turbos that would give 500bhp in a 4 or 5 cylinder car...
What is it about this engine that allows it to generate so much higher specific power than any other engine?
What's it got that a Golf R or RS6 doesn't have?
On the face of it the ingredients aren't all that great - split pin crankshaft, no block girdle, nightmare inlet and exhaust...
Been wondering about this for a while - can you elaborate on that comment?
JE seem to have a decent reputation.
Have you had a bad experience with them?
Can you recommend other alternatives?
Is there a better place to discuss this?
Yes indeed, but has anybody done that with pump fuel and no spray?
A very fast ten-year old car is a hobby, not just transport, and I'm looking for another challenge.
I avoid complication for the sake of it, but charge cooling has some fundamental advantages:
The IC can be optimised for cooling...
I'm interested in using these turbos in a slightly different installation.
Even upgraded intercoolers seem to have limited flow and cooling capacity for these blowers, so I'm looking at charge cooling instead, with custom coolers on top of the engine.
Would it be possible to configure the...
