When it comes to the actual turbo specs and technical stuff call a turbo dealer the combinations are endless.

A stroker motor usually has really good bottom end power. In my setup I tried getting a cam that I can spin about 7500rpm and I'm tring to match a turbo that will help me more up on top and my mph.

I didn't realize in the galleries that there are these two pics showing a BAS header hooked up to a turbo ... exactly what I was thinking of.

Anyone know who this car belongs to ?

Thanks

Sandeep

Sandeep,

Keep me up to speed with your T4 turbo project, I've been thinking of doing this with my 914.

I already have the SDS PEFI system and if I get the Nickies I'll have no sealing issues.

On the exhaust you have to have good sealing heavy stub pipes on the heads, exhaust leaks are a killer.

Well, on a turbo'd engine that remains to be seen of course. Even Porsche had sealing issues with about 10% of their Nikasils cyinders on the 964 N/A and replaced all of them with an extra ring in a groove in both the head and the alu cylinder.
I believe Charles does offer an extra sealing ring of inconel that resembles Porsches solution to the sealing problem.
In the far future, I want to try it (nikasils with a turbo without extra grooved sealing ring) as well tho...
Greetings,
Walter

Mark Thurston's Oval

In a past issue of Volksworld, Mark Thurston's Oval in the UK is using 103mm cast iron cylinders with a T03 turbo to produce about 270hp, with an 74mm crank.

I wonder how that engine is holding up....

Here is a pic from the LBC2racing.com website of his engine .... looks like this is what I'm going to do as far as turbo placement is concerned... another example of BAS header with a turbo.

Hey sandeep, I noticed you mentined you can get turbo "ready" IDF's. Where did you find these? I've been looking for a while for these so I don't need to notch the shafts for O rings on mine or get the nitrous filled floats. Awesome news!!....but where? Been planing on turbon' my T4 for a while, glad to see others are to.

Turbo prepped IDF's are $1000 from Competition Engineering ... to expensive for me .. at this price I will have to look into an EFI setup ... but I have time ... lots of it... the T4 runs fine right now and with all of the advancements in the industry so far, another year may prove to be worth the wait.

That motor of Marks is one of Russ' cast offs.
The Eurorace heads and 3 season old barrels if i remember right.
The system is one Russ made in stainless, Yup that grotty thing is stainless steel!!
I recall it made 20 horse more but with 3 mill longer stroke than Russ ran.

Talking Moving forward

Look what I scored ...

48mm Throttlebodies






Pressure ducting





Now I can start mocking up the turbo system ... The T1 manifolds I will keep and the TB's have a boss which will be machined out for the injectors. Whatever I can't use will then be for sale

Now I just need to look for the electronics to run it all.
