If it has a seal on the rod side yep that would be perfect!I'm going on a holiday soon so not right now. Once all my boost control issues are sorted i will send it back
IJ. Something like this might solve the problem of boost control
I Think i'll be going down this path guys.
seen this done with evos. IMO it would be easier to just weld the internal gate shut, and fab the wastegate onto the stock manifold.Is there any reason that we couldn't run an external wastegate on this turbo?
Since the turbo has a proper cast divider between the exhaust/waste flow, with a proper divorced Downpipe with the integrated true divider. (not just a flange piece of metal)
We could remove the flapper for the internal gate, weld a flange for the external gate to the wastegate pipe, then fab a dump tube with an external wastegate in between. Does anyone see any problems with this?
Just a thought...
This weekend at the track:
I'm at 12psi now max with a MBC and its almost out of adjustment. I will pre-load the current gate another turn and a half and see what I can get to but yeah it appears to be too weak. I'm curious to see how that new internal wastegate works out that could be a great easy to add solution.
Looks promising got a graph? Numbers are higher than mine at those levels! get it fixed and get some video's!Sorry guys, have been uber busy,,,,, ok so with boost leaks still, a shitty tune and 5 psi, i made 258 and 262 trq. sadly i couldnt keep it to hold 10psi, so im guessing it was somewhere between 7-10 and made 300 flat with 278 trq, now heres the kicker. we ran it to 6k, it was still climbing VERY steadily. no drop off at 6k. so the turbo is definately performing well, especially being that its barely waking up. i appologize for still not fixing the leaks lol but it should give you an idea. i have two more couplers to replace, i want to give her a tittie bit more pload and try again. im wondering if it wont hold boost because of the mentioned weak wgate spring. i suppose we will have to find out. im going to ask the guys at the shop to send an email with the dyno sheets so i can post them up. Oh yea, and this was on a mustang dyno, which i hear read low. just fyi
I know my greddy type s controller has 3 ports on the solenoid, for internal or external so there may be a way to make it work. i will prob pick up that turbonetics dual port next week.Sean, the turbo is blowing out it's wastegate causing your slow spool and appearance of late, high-rpm power. I've cranked mine down and got it to 12psi and will try tightening it a bit more before replacing the wastegate actuator. We will never see quick spool if we are cracking the WG in the Mid-RPM Band, which is what I was, and still am experiencing after 12psi. My turbo still spools better than you described and I have not sealed the turbine housing yet. Car is noticeably faster than CT26 60-1 at same boost levels. We will look forward to all of ours being remedied once we get a suitable actuator replacement plan in place. I'm down right now with a stuck/collapsed lifter or a valve problem and have taken the car off the road for the time being. I'd like to know more about which boost controllers are designed to work with the 2-Port style Turbonetics Actuators which seem to be the best bet for any high-boost internal WG turbo.
i have now drived with mine over a year, and its still perfect, its boost actully pretty fast
Eh. its ok. i was kinda expecting it lol. but its getting to the point where its just too cold to drive a car with no heat anyway so perhaps its for the better. i just wish the transmission hadnt dropped out of my truck the day after...lolThat sucks Sean
I got my cooler piping welded up and mine will be back on the road soon.
And that my friends is what it really means to be a supramaniac. Love hate relationship 24/7Argh, sorry to hear that Sean. These cars are *always* f^#$*ng broken. We spend so much time, money and effort for the most minimal of satisfaction. Mine was running great after my 3500$ put into it this year getting a MAFTPRO, Larger Injectors, Speed Density and supporting equipment installed and I ran it for a few weeks just barely got it tuned in right and now it sits useless again with a sticking valve or valve lifter that I have yet to fully diagnose. More money to get my friend to tow it 200 miles back to our shop and I've had no fun at all with the car. I brought it to the strip a few weeks ago and had about as poor 60 foot times as you did, worse even, but I admittedly do not know how to drag race (read, launch) very well at all yet. I feel like I'm in this endless loop where my car could not be sold to anybody because of the mods, yet i've got too much into it to give up, yet its rarely ever a fun, reliable, drivable state where I can take it on vacation and enjoy it. And for the amount I pay to fuel it, fix it, insure it and store it I continally say... WTF?!
