I am about to put my turbo on, and this is what it's compressor flow map looks like:
It is a "little baby" turbo. An IHI RHB5, that was the original turbo in the old BEGi kits.
As you can see, I'll be really pushing it to hit 10psi. Therein lies the problem. I've got an MS standalone setup, and 460cc injectors, so nothing should hold me back, and I really want to be around 200-220hp.
So I'll do what us guys have always done, find ways to improvise when perceived size isn't enough.
I am trying to fill in where the compressor leaves off. Especially above 5K rpm where this compressor will fall flat on it's face.
Enter WAR EMERGENCY POWER, or water injection.
These parts came in from cardriverx today. Includes pump, a Y and two fittings, a solenoid, and an injector.
I plan to do something like Joe Perez's setup, but probably not as involved.
As MagnaMX-5 recently put it, WI is scale-able.
(I think he actually said: "You can do a big setup, or a little setup, boiled setup, grilled setup, fried setup...)
I want to just deal with water, unless I start sourcing a good meth mix.
Either way I'll start with water.
I do want to do table switching.
I've been trying to read up, but just got into this, and worked a lot over spring break, so please correct me where I'm off base. I honestly have nearly no idea what I'm getting into, just that it will kick ***.
I want to run a pressure switch that turns pump on at 5psi, and another switch in the water line that tells MS to swap to a more aggressive timing table.
I don't plan on it being progressive or upping boost (can't do) when WI hits.
I'm not sure how to do this with MS, or if I'll even be able to use existing circuitry. The rest should be pretty simple.
What I know I need so far:
Any help and guidance appreciated.
