Don't forget I have a clutch to run in too though.
ok so dont launch it...
Reading that link it seems to based on bike engines which in my experience are quite a bit different and I did used to run them in a similar way to what has been suggested.
what clutch is it eddy? jbs kevlar one?
Spec Stage 3+
same as I run then....
works fine on mine since installed. (and abused)
does'nt need running in btw.... unless your puks are not like my stage 3+ ones.
Any day now! There's been a slight hold up sorting the boost hoses and also a larger turbo than the one shown in the previous photo's has now been installed which required a couple of further tweaks to fit.
The ceramic coating of the manifold has been scrapped due to problems on the test manifold so instead my new manifold has been ported and polished.
larger.... wonder if mine prompted something bigger
can't wait for mine running again. well keen to see how the new turbo works.
I'm very excited, I really cannot wait to get it back.
What turbo is it you've gone for now?
he's not telling but by the above it's very big,ihi/mitsu? Got to be rx6,t67 or td06 25g.
Or perhaps the RCM ihi/garrett hybrid.
tell me more?
Exhaust turbine is a lot bigger than the ickle PE/VF34 I have been running. Cant see much back pressure coming from this baby.
All unknown at the mo as to how it will or wont work.
I may yet about it or maybe about it
I cant let Keith Murrays A4 quattro romp away from me down the straights now can I (which he does currently)-thats the plan anyhows.
Running in going to be a bummer tho eh!
how frustrating is that going to be.
its going to haul arse me thinks and scare a load of unsuspecting fast cars on the highways. 4wd too.... oh I wish...
what power is he running bill? must be bloody quick to pull away from yours? is it still a 1.8t
gt30/ihi hybrid with p18/p20 ihi exhaust housing not sure on wheel specs,suppose to be good for 450bhp.I'd rather go 20g.
It will be very frustrating I'm sure but I'll do my best to cover the required miles asap.
it's all gone quiet eddy any updates?
Sorry, been busy. Picked the car up Thursday, ran it in by Friday night and had the oil changed Saturday afternoon. Only running 0.7bar at the moment and have only made the journey home since being allowed to use all the revs. The work has been done to an excellent standard and under the bonnet looks very OEM apart from the blue boost hoses as the engine cover still fits and I've gone with an OEM airbox. I'll try to post some pics soon.
any updates? been following this thread, good reading looks like an incedible good setup
I'll get round to do a proper post at some point but for now; The boost has been upped to 1.3bar last Saturday and it's now much quicker. The haldex 4wd is doing a very good job of putting the power down although I've not done a full on standing start launch yet as I'm working up progressively to see how the drivetrain handles it.
