Re: Pictures of Completed Turbo Install

Klem,
Wondering if the dual throttlebodys offer more hp. That is a sweet setup. I am glad you guys finally jumped to the dark side with me. I know you will not regret the power gains. The hardest part is wiping the smile off of your face so you do not have a dirt smile.

Re: Pictures of Completed Turbo Install

Just got back from Florence. The car worked great and it hauls. I do feel the dual throttle bodies do offer a performance advantage but I can't prove it with any data. I do know that the stock Redline throttle bodies do work and work well. The boost was at 15 to 16lbs. The clutch worked great too. Both the primary Comet and the secondary Team. Didn't change a thing Except the weights in the Comet. The weather was fantastic on Saturday and was able to get the boost all dialed in. Then the rain came in and ended the weekend for us old fare weather dudes. Didn't have time to get the clutch weights completely dialed in but it is very close the way it is. Just a matter of a couple grams on the tip. The entire install worked out perfect with no problems. Frogger had his new NOS on bored and after a few minor repairs had it working great too. He was right beside me up comp hill every time. The big advantage of the turbo is you have the torque and the horse power all the time. That NOS kit that he got does work for alot less money though. Major Mayhem was there with over 200hp on tap and that big RSR-S can cook. He beat us up comp hill by about 2 car lengths. I'd like to thank him for all the help on my turbo set up also! Well Klemdotter and Jtap are going to be turboed soon now too. They can hardly wait.

Re: Pictures of Completed Turbo Install

Woops. I need to read a little closer. So, Pilot, I have been fighting the rev limiter since day one on mine. Did you hit the limiter on top rpm, ( run out of gear) ? On mine I thought a little weight to the tip would fix it and then it started killing me on bottom end. Just curious what the full senario is. Maybe I should go back to square one and start filling out pages 3-6 in the log book. Any help to put this to rest for me would be appreciated.

Re: Pictures of Completed Turbo Install

sandracer1, Let me start by saying that I appreciate all the posts you have shared with us about your turbo project. I feel that you have way more time behind the wheel with a turbo than I do, and you know first hand what your car is or isn't doing. Maybe I have one advantage over you from being with Major Mayhem for the last year on every trip to the beach and have tried to help him with all his problems and I have learned some in the process. His RSR-S is powered by the same Weber turbo engine that we now have. If I were you I would put a tach in your car that read the actual rpm. We are using Autometer tachs that are set for 4cyl 2pulse setting to read properly. Second I would adjust your waist gate linkage by loosening the turnbuckle so there is free play in the linkage, then turn it till the free play is gone, then turn the turnbuckle another 3 full turns and lock the jamb nuts. This will give you close to 15lbs boost. Your waist gate bracket has been spaced over towards the waist gate to make clearance for the silicone pressure hose mounting. Your linkage was too long because of this and you said you had to shorten it. It may still be too long. If you can't turn the turnbuckle 3 full turns, you will have to shorten it more to get the proper adjustment. There isn't a set length to go by unless the bracket is mounted in the stock position and ours are not. Your clutch weight is not going to be easy because I feel you've changed more stuff than needed. I'm sure you will be different than mine. You posted several months ago that you were at 46 grams. Recently you posted you were at 59.4 grams. Thats a huge change. I'm closer to your 46 gram weight but thats not important. I'm wondering if you are not actually hitting the rev limiter but the waist gate is actually opening and closing too early from not being adjusted improperly. You posted that you adjusted it to a specific length and I don't think that is how you should adjust it because of the modified installation. The actual rpm that you are reaching would be nice to know also instead of guessing from the Redline tach only reading 1/3 the rpm. I'm assuming that you still have the factory tach. All this is my opinion only and I'm not telling you that you have to do anything or it will not work. I'm just giving you some suggestions from my experience working with Major Mayhem on his car and on my own recent turbo install on my Revolt.
