    I'm not sure how to have a real discussion on this subject when presented with platitudes, 3rd party anecdotes, etc. Hastily engineered homebrew turbo kits (with no fuel tuning and no timing...

    Normally a journal bearing turbo should not need a restrictor. A ball bearing turbo perhaps. However on a PRV engine might be a good idea.

    With a -AN4 feedline I tested cold/hot pressures at...

    I upsized to 3/4" hose and ran straight into the side of the pan, and clear tubing showed this was enough, although I may graft on a 300 to 500mL vented drip tank for really really cold mornings. ...

    I've never taken a Rajay apart, but Garrett used either an "encapsulated" seal which is a sealed unit that is pressed in/out of the backplate, or a multi-piece seal that is integrated into the...

    If there's no obvious damage I wouldn't be too concerned about balance.




    Right on! My own T3 was "professionally rebuilt". I had to re-rebuild it because the professional screwed up the...

    Typically they're reverse threaded, so that's an important tidbit :D

    You definitely want to use as perfectly sized wrenches as possible. I would clamp the center section in a vice so you can...

    Dryer to evap removal can be made easier if you pull the fuel pump access plate. Gives you a straight shot to the connection. I saw a lot of posts about how scary that fitting is but had it removed...

    I built this little guy about an hour before driving to DCS2016. Aluminum bar stock and 3M trim tape. With a silicone case on my phone it friction locks into place.

    Many - if not most - aftermarket car stereos have separate Antenna and Remote (amp) triggers. The last 3 stereos I've had in my DMC have been that way.

    EV6 vs EV12 dual cone test. Not super scientific but satisfying to my own curiosity.

    EV12 look good. Seems the vast majority of "in the wild" EV12 are dual cone but both cones spray the valve...

    I'm thinking the 031J from the Audi TT turbo is a winner as the TT makes 225HP with 4 of them @ 3b fuel pressure and takeoffs are plentiful.

    You should shoot me a price of what you offer so I can...

    They do seem like they will fit. I will probably have to swap one of the compressor bracket bolts for either a smaller head or an allen head. Or just remove it entirely since there are 3 other...

    Bosch EV12 injectors?

    Seem like a good candidate for Kjet heads. Anyone ever try?

    I picked up a p/n 280157012 just to eyeball it. They're a fairly easy to find VW/Audi part. 4 hole injector, end cap looks to be the...

    Island / BAE have a Hobbs pressure switch (or two) installed to force the system to go open loop and add fuel enrichment on boost. The "book" method of installing them is bad as it cut/splices the...

    There have been some turbo setups out there that use the CSV as a 7th injector for enrichment but I'd want to see the data on how effective it is. A FrankenCIS or UTCIS should be superior. If it's...

    It seems to be intended to help bleed a fuel system under vapor lock, adding just enough fuel to get things moving.

    Ok, that's a lot of mods :D

    Sounds like it's set up for manifold vacuum instead of ported vacuum. Island has you make that mod but BAE didn't. I'm not sure that it's particularly...

    Passenger side sputter may correspond to driver side vacuum issue. I can't tell exactly but also a bit of a misfire sound even at idle?

    I can hear a whistle like a vacuum leak. Did you...
