I am not talking about making more power. I am merly saying we should move the powerband lower to gain more response. That being said I know if we do make the powerband lower it would hurt the top end a bit but seeing that the turbo is already kinda big i dont see how it would choke up on the top end. Theres alot of guys in the DSM community that use adjustable cam gears to spool big turbo's quicker seeing how they have small motors. Just a thoughtYou may be able to squeak some power out of adjustable, but for the most part they are a waste of time w/o some cams to pair up
I reused stock CT26 WG actuator with additional spring pulling back the WG to make it stiffer, so it started to open at 15 PSI if I remember correctly, but that didn't help much with the turbo lag. I have a manual boost controller, so either exhaust gas pressure is opening the WG or the turbo itself is the issue. I'm going to try dual port actuator with EBC and hopefully rebuild the turbo by putting in ball bearings.So going threw this entire thread, it still hasn't been answered. Has the WG issue been solved? I am not against using an external gate if someone can figure out exactly how it should be done? Also, what DP are you guys using with this?
No, worse. 60-1 in a CT-26 housing is destined to fail quickly.Not sure if anyone has seen the Kinugawa ct26 60-1 turbo, Might be a better alternative to the Cx Racing one. Has a 1yr warranty. Here's a link to it at the manufactures website: http://shopping.kinugawaturbo.com/kinugawaturbochargertoyotasupra3sgte7mgtect26upgradewgarrett60-1450p-1.aspx
They also sell a compresor wheel and cover kit for right around $200 and an adjustable wastegate actuator for around $130 which their 60-1 turbo comes with.
I bought one and had it installed along with a pipe-Kit, and MAP ECU3 computer piggyback. Problem on first high boost run: Disabled AEM Boost controller to let it release at stock 8lb of boost (which it did) but never got boost after that because I think the Wastegate never closed after that.Might be that the acruator arm is interfering with the New oil-return line flange (VERY close-by. Yet to be determined. Have seen posts by others about same issue, so it may be an inherent problem. We will see. Anyone else heard about this?Is it balanced?
Lots of fabricating. Gt35 turbo is so large that the header/exhaust manifold provided seems to.be in the way. The only way to fit the turbo on 'he heade and bolt it down is to hammer 1/8th of an inch on one port of the header and insert a miniature heat shield betwee. The header and turbo. Oill lines? You wwondered how well the stock lines bolt up? Thry dont. This turbo is 100% oil cooled and the cx racjng company provides you with oil fittings for the turbo, but they skimp you the fittings for the block which you have to get at a turbo performance shop e.g. Turbo Technology Tacoma Washington. After fabricating oil lines so that the ones that they provided given fit the engine block, then you have to customize the downpipe to fit the escape rear side of the gt35 godspeed turbo. I made a 90 degree 3 inch bend insert into a clamp that clamps the rear turbo exhaust escape side to a 3inch exhaust adapter. Anyways long story short i am positive that the kit is worth $800 . Email me or reply if you need help or have any questions.I don't see any water ports...I don't even think the stock oil lines will work on it. I imagine it is a t3/4 center section..
I can't wait either since last time I ran a big mouth it was amazing. I plan on going big mouth since the divorced wastegate models don't seem to line up terribly well with the exhaust housing itself.You're on a stock elbow?
You should see quite a difference when you get rid of that.
And possibly the quality because I have had almost no issues. Just needed preload, and had to have a custom slanted oil drain flange/nut made by my local guru (Mark you rock!) to hook up my -10 drain line, and I made my own intake pipe section. Otherwise this thing is pretty awesome. We will see how it goes with the dyno, and a before and after on some mods.Too bad the price doubled on them.
