then i took it all apart again to have the vband on the turbo changed. and to check out a possible leak on the radiator

I've seen folks take a stock manifold, flip it upside down, cut the collector off and weld a turbo flange before. That's what i was wondering is if he did that. :yes:

I believe they used a stock manifold on the driverside that feeds around back instead of up front, and build the log style manifold for the passenger side. Believe it was Michael who did it who is co-owner of a fab company.


 


I could also be completely wrong though....

i like that piece of piping you made from the turbo to the intercooler. keeps cold piping short as possible. i heard you can set that controller to only cut boost from a lean condition after a certain boost level. like they said you can safely run 13.0:1 up to around 5psi to spool bigger turbos then richen it up past that point. if your still lean past the point you set it to then it'll cut boost after that. kind of hard to explain. this video i watched on youtube explained it a lot better. but it sounds nice to be able to run it a little leaner before you really start pushing boost in order to spool up quicker
