Stuff in the Mail too...
« on: January 10, 2005, 03:26:00 PM »
My FK badgeless grill just went in. Very nice and much needed.
My New South Powergasket just arrived and will be going in.
I have a Dawes Devices Manual Hybrid Boost Controller on its way.
I have Denso 252cc injectors coming as well- compliments of Rusty.

Some more work is coming in Feburary and then I'm going to get dyno'd to see where I'm at and what I need to do to get where I want to be. But the plan so far is putting me VERY close to my target.

I'll keep you all updated once the installs begin. And the butt dyno is finished :wink:

Did I mention I just scored a huge metal bench too? That's going in my garage. Obviously.

Nice!  I am ordering a chip today for my Coupe and in the next few weeks will be ordering some smoked e-code headlights as well.

I am only doing the above because it's cheap. The chip is less than $50 and the lights are like $200.  Of course the chip gives very minimal HP and Torque gains but provides better performance through higher rpms.

That's awesome Jay...the coupe is going to look sweet with smoked  e-codes.

My current modding process is stupid cheap too. The injectors were free, the MBC was $40, and the powergasket was $60. The gains I expect, while not huge, will be well worth the money.

Rusty said since the injectors have a different spray pattern than the Bosch, they produce a rough idle. He also said it didn't bother him at all, but Chas tried it out and didn't like it. If I get the 5-7lbs psi gains I'm hoping for, than I won't really care. If not, I can always change it up.

This will hopefully put me at about 0.8bar=12psi boost. This should be good for me until my turbo goes out then I'll look at increasing from there. Combined with my Feburary mods, I think I'll have the HP and torque I'm looking for, but we shall see.
 
I'm waiting to mention my Feburary mods to make sure everything goes through okay. They're not huge, but they're significant.
