“Turbo Upgrades, but they won't ship to Canada.”
Thanks Jay, I’ll check them out.
“Someone on here had his upgraded to a 19G wheel,
Help with tuning the upgraded Greddy T-19 Turbo”
So did you search this or have it saved?
“What are you wanting to accomplish with the wheel upgrade? More power? The TD04-15G is going to be good to 270-280HP as it sits.”
I have the time and money to upgrade, so looking at options before I make any changes.
“You'll find there was a purge in the forum a couple of years ago, so there might be some information lost. For the remaining information, you'll just have to wade through the *****, the search is only going to be so intelligent.”
Wading is what I’m trying to avoid.
“You've been living in a cave (igloo
) if you still have the wastegate that came with the kit. I replaced mine and it went from a really jumpy boost gauge needle (like +/- 3 or 4psi) to a rock steady needle, higher than I wanted it to be. So its not only a convenience upgrade, its for engine safety too, you could be boosting higher than expected.”
Still researching options for wategate control.
“Are you dead set on improving the greddy turbo only?”
No. I am currently doing many things, and still making plans.
“ There are other upgrades that can give you more power and torque;
Bigger exhaust with hi flow cat/muffler”
front mount intercooler (FMIC)
Bigger injectors 460 or 550's PnP options look at the turbo FAQ
Going to a complete standalone will give you gains as well as being able to run the said injectors (can have one built for good price)”
“You can get a new turbo mani with more flow, therefore more power
and Water Injection will lower your intake temperatues allowing you to increase timing “
Mani probably wont change, WI I’m still deciding the route.
“with all that said above you will be around low to mid 200's of course with a good dyno tune. You will need a wideband oxygen sensor and boost gauge before you do any of this”
I have an Innovate WB, I know all about tuning.
“What do you mean about the wastegate flapper letting air in? “
If exhaust can blow out, pulses can suck clean air back in raising the O2 content in the exhaust pipe. Exhaust leaks anywhere before the sensor (WB or NB) can disrupt the readings.
“The solution to the loose/rattling flapper is to tighten the WGA rod slightly, just enough that the flapper is held shut against it's seat. I completely agree with curly though, the original WGA has to go. I'm using the one FM sells (the one without a bracket, with a straight arm). You'll need a rod extension kit (atpturbo.com) and then fabricate your own bracket to hold it on.”
Having not run the turbo yet, I don’t know that it rattles. That’s not what my concern is with the flapper shaft. Thanks for the good info on the WGA tho.
“This is my old greddy kit.”
Yes, and thanks again Jay
“I had the stock wastegate can on it with a helper spring. Would hold 9psi with out the MBC all day long. The helper spring in my opinion made a new wastegate can unnecessary.”
I will probably let the MS control the WG, and therefore I am undecided on WGA choice at this time. That’s a whole different topic for the future.
Thanks to everyone for the responses, but I would still like to see some search tutorials.
