Elegance. its happening.


Tomorrow night im cutting off the T2 flange and modifying the manifold to work with the turbo, then taking it to the welder to have them TIG it.... i dont have the proper gas for my MIG and i much prefer a nice clean weld for something like this.

from there i need to see how the downpipe is going to work out and hopefully everything will line up, but that may be optimistic.

planning on being boosted next week and then i will head to the m-tuned shop for some dyno time.

Just a verbal update... been driving the car for a few days now... ~1200km...

the car is just as responsive if not more responsive than before.
with no boost control setup, i am getting full boost off the wastegate spring (10psi) at 3600-3700rpm. (2871R 0.86TiAL exhaust with 56 trim compressor wheel)

only difference besides that is the vband flange on the turbo manifold and i modified my downpipe to be externally vented since it was being a royal pain to setup and it keeps me a little more sane on the street.

Any updates on this? How are things going? Did you get a tune done yet and if so can you post a map?

I'm thinking of possibly a 2860RS or 2871R with a .64 tial housing on my 1.6 w/ built head. Think it could be quite the hot setup.

either he popped his motor or the turbo was nowhere near its efficiency plateau and didn't make much power

.86 hotside I think is too big, should have went .63 the power difference isn't worth the lag associated with the .86. Numbers don't seem right though, I made 60+ whp more at only 3 more psi then you with a .48 hotside

You 2871 guys make me hate my turbo. However I\'m a ***** and scared of breaking drivetrain.

when actually driving my car it was very fun. im not worrying about the response. change your driving style a hair for a larger turbo and you will be ok....

my engine blew, so im done for the season waiting for a rebuild or some swap.

I'm torn b/w a .64 and .86 housing. I don't want to make a mistake buying the wrong one since the housings are like $350. I wish more 1.6L guys were running real turbos.

My head is good for 8K+ but I will most likely run the hard cut around 7600ish RPM. I need the extra RPM's for my local track with my rear end/wheel tire size.

get the 2871R 0.64 housing then... if you were to run the engine up to or over 8 grand then you would need the extra flow of the 0.86
