But you dodged a BIG bullet with the churbo btw. The CXracing churbos were CRAP - crappy enough that I just threw it to the scrapper over offering a ~3k mile turbo on here for $cost of shipping.

To sum up what I've been getting PMs about:

Non-standard size, non-standard bolt holes, non-standard EVERYTHING.

Anything about it is one off, and it sucks horribly as a trubo since it's smaller than a 2560 size-wise but spools slower than a GT35R or something equally ridiculously large on a Miata.

Oh, and it has several cheap chinese bolts/studs broken off in it, which are going to run some $StupidCost to have machined out (See: Curly's dilemma about busted bolts/studs with his T25)

I was just going to say that the wastegate didn't look like it was gonna work once clocked, but apparently it does.

Yeah, just one cost me $70.

Why didn't you return it like me? Did you wanna just try it?

Yep, works perfect. Best fitting wastegate I've had yet - the wastegate mount attaches to any 2 of the six bolts on the rear of the compressor housing..

I got an offer/ended up selling my previous turbo setup for more than the previous turbo setup cost plus alterations I had to make for the new turbo setup, and I HAD to make a choice right then and there with what I had on hand. I said eff it, and went with the churbo because in the end, it contributed some cash towards this new turbo even throwing the churbo away completely (Read: Free churbo plus some cash towards this turbo setup!)

This was back when I converted from my 1.6 to my 1.8 engine as well, please remember. I also changed full turbo setups, engines, etc.

I'm very interested in the results of this thing I can't wait to see how it does. Although soviets dyno is amazing I'm still on the fence about what turbo I want now that I have a built motor.

Latest update:

Scratching my head on this. It builds boost so goddamn fast it overshoots the target boost, and hits overboost control basically as fast as I can hit the gas pedal.

How does one properly adjust an adjustable wastegate?

Wastegate actuator is it right now - no MBC, no EBC.

Wastegate diaphragm holds pressure? Signal source?

Yeah, and signal source comes from the stock location on the turbo.

Everything's stock - I'm just trying to figure out The Right Way to adjust the wastegate.

I'm not certain - but when I couldn't build boost very well (Read: Wasn't tightened down. At all.), it held around 9psi of boost stable once the turbo had finally spooled up. The turbo I got comes with base pressure wastegates between 6-12 psi, sadly my reseller didn't include that information with the turbo I bought.

I went from no preload to 3.5 turns of preload as per suggestions from the internet. Likely, that's too much preload, but at this point I have no futzing idea.

Well, you need to loosen it until you're not over boosting, then snug it up until it just barely isn't cutting out.

Roger, thanks Curly.

Read: Keep loosening it until I reach the boost psi I want? Seemed intuitive, but the source I read was pretty clear about 3-3.5 turns of preload, which made me worry.

Just got off the phone with precision.

They include either a 6-8psi actuator and a 10-12psi actuator. Sounds like I got the 10-12.

There should be no charge to swap that out, right?
