If your looking at getting a Garrett T04e/T04R they are huge. Will be creating lots of power. If your only looking to use standard injectors and going for a lower power then the turbo won't even spool. A smaller turbo which will be constantly "spooling" will mean a much more fun car!
What do you think to this manifold: I need an external wasteage with my turbo:
hi guys (again)
anyone know about fitting secondhand volvo turbos? i believe they run some t03/t04 turbos, and the intercoolers are big too? anyoine know which models people use to get the bits off?
Don't have a clue about the volvo turbo's. Get an evo intercooler they are dirt cheap used, thats what I've just bought. Then just modify the bumper etc to make it fit (well force it) haha.
thanks jackharding, ill look for evo intercoolers.........what turbo set-up are you looking at? and what sort of power? as for standard injectors, i hear some ford and volvo injectors fit and are around 35-42 lb ones? thses should help with increase with the hp fuel pump. if needed , ill look into a head gasket to lower the comp.
for a manifold.............speak to hamadhayyat on the forum, hes done his own one and i asked if her would build another manifold and he said he would, might be a good option as this guy is running a turbo set-up on his bmw with home made manifold.
Turbo - tad larger than a garrett gt30
42lb denso injectors with bosch seals
0.140 mls headgasket & ARP studs
Megasquirt system for tuning
Anything else you need to know?
Your meant to use the ford/Bosch injectors but I just went with the deno's because they were so cheap (and without checking). So will have to change the seals as they won't fit into my injector rail (but thats only £10-£13 on seals)
