Default I'm....... BOOSTED!!!

It's awesome. It spools pretty quickly seeing how I have the wastegate ports wrong so that it never opens. Gotta fix that. Hit overboost protection when I had it at 180 kPa and it's a 7 PSI gate. Put overboost to 200 kPa and hit it again, then I knew something was up. But wow, 200kPa on this turbo is uh, fun. Starts to spool around 4K, then it's like a rocket till it hits overboost around 4500.

That has got to be the ultimate tease. wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, WOOOHEEEE, oh crap.


Now that you've got a whiff of what that tease can do I bet you are a little more motivated to get her done and running right.

Yeah, this is awesome. Put some miles on it and got the wastegate fixed. It's a beast for 7 PSI. Haven't got on it hard in 1st, but second is Saweeet! And third is too. Need to do some tuning though. That will come tomorrow. It's running ~12.5 in boost right now. I want it in the 11's though.

Here's the timing map I'm running. I made it on my own, but then I pulled a bunch of timing out. Pulled 4 degrees out of everything that's boosted, then a degree out of every cell above 5K in boost, then another degree out of every cell above 6K in boost, etc to 8K. Figured I'll get AFR's dialed rich, then get spark closer, then get AFR's back to 11.5 or so.

ALSO: I still think it's funny that I posted pics of how I hooked the wastegate up and NOBODY ever mentioned that was wrong.....

Congrats man. That is awesome.

It's very cool to see some of you guys getting close and getting there. It's definite motivation for those of us just starting down the long road to boost.

Can't wait to see vids once you get it all ironed out.

Good job man, glad you finally realized the supercharger setup was bogus and went this route.
Isn't it better to be boosted then trying to figure out how you're going to rebuild an old shitty SC?
Congrats.
