    Thread: Eaton guys represent...

    1. 04-02-2006 10:18 AM #51
      sounds like you've got pretty good reasoning behind your dislike of the eaton replacements...
      it is sture, the eaton is not the best replacement for the G60.. it's not as efficient for one, but.. when it comes down to it for me.. price is a massive deciding factor... and reliability. after having my charger rebuilt by Gruven back in the day.. and having it fail 8k miles later, pissing oil like there was no tomorrow (just out of their 6 month warranty), i sent it to Oliver @ ORZ. The guy hooked me up, but now, somewhere around 15k later, an apex seal & wave-spring decided they didn't like their home, and chooched a displacer the price of my M90 conversion was somewhere around $800(ish), including a new IC, and paying a friend to do the welding... i've already beat the snot out of it, and while the car is now almost uncomfortably loud while driving, and the performance isn't what a g60 would show me @ similar boost levels, the price is right, AND more importantly, it keeps my car from being a slow-azz NA dog.
      just my input, take it as you will

      i think that is pretty reasonable, forgot all about gruven and the g40 main shaft bearing shim job they got caught doing, i think seals on rebuilds probably don't last as long because the traditional rebuild does not involve welding up the old seal grooves in the main shaft and then have them reground, i know BBM and ORZ used to do it as an additional feature but i think few people were interested in spending the x-tra $200
      if your car has gotten to the the point were the noise is annoying, it may be time to move the t-body this will elliminate the blower whine and reduce parasitic drag, although this depends a lot on whether you have the integral bypass
      i try to spend a fair amount of time at New England Dragway on the open track nights, im me the next time you are the mood to flog that thing, as i would like to see you you managed to cram the 90 in that space [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      oh, i love the noise gives me a big 'ol hardon most every time i drive it.. but it's certainly not a car to go and pick up a date in... not unless you KNOW she's into cars.. couple that with some solid motor mounts, and the cabin vibrates.. alot.. actually had one girl squirmin on the seat one day.. guess her jeans were too tight
      next time i'm headed to NED i'll try to remember to give you a shout.. kinda a long drive from here though.. friggin 4+ hours oh well.
      as for how it got crammed in there.. well.. a BFH came into play a few times.. as did a grinder.. and a plasma torch [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] she's ghetto, but it'll be happier once i make new brackets & such @ work..

      you know how to quiet the eaton. turbo on the intake, and turb on the exhaust. better than any silencer kit muahaha
      seriously the turbo does a helluva job on silencing the eaton. i was shocked at how quiet the car was, i thought i was driving a 2.0T(FSI) no lag no whine

      i agree.. thought about going that route, but.. turns out i not only was pressed for time.. i was broke too .. got better things to do right now.. like build an engine that will fully appreciate the eaton

      i think it was customers, not workers... and i hate to use the term but.. "typical mkIV owners" was the feeling i got.. and since there was a plethora of rennen banners slathered on their cars, shirts, hats... i was left with a nasty taste in my mouth..
      oh well.. i'll visit someday.. when i feel like paying for the fuel for my hungry corrado to drive the 2 hours to portland..

      I just came across this and thought I should comment. Niether myself or my partner (the 2 owners) attended the Windsor show this year. Although I did hear of some ranting and inconsiderate words that were thrown around at the awards ceremony that we spoke to some people about. PLEASE dont confuse this with the thoughts, opinions, and actions of our shop. We have a strong appreciation for the time and effort that goes into building aircooled cars and applaud anyone in this industry - water or air cooled - for the time, patience and money that goes into building these cars. I assure you had we been at the actual show, we would have made a statement against these particular individuals. Feel free to come up and visit us anytime so that we can meet you face to face and hopefully you will leave with different thoughts about our company.
      Thanks-

      Ok, Ok, Ok... back on topic. We may be re-registering and insuring the werewolf to go to the OSD event in Seekonk on april 23rd. That'd be a good time to get it dynoed and if that offer still stands (peter?) we'll do it!

      I know nate, the m90 setup looks good and from what I've heard should be a good replacement on the g60 as hes had problmes with g60's. I would be willing to go down with ya and dyno so these guys have some dynos to compare with as we have pretty much the same stuff done, and run about the same psi, I might run more then you but im not sure i run upwards of 19+ psi on my 65mm, I also have a friend from mass with the turbo swap done, would be nice to have all 3 of us there to see what we make for power. All we would need is a lysolm for all 4 options. Should make a day of it!

      I know that the actions of a few individuals can make or break it for many others, but even knowing that, i wasn't thrilled. It makes me very happy to see your response regarding it however. When i make it down to Portland to dyno w/the corrado, i'll be sure to swing in & say hi!

      Wow I come back and there are two pages
      Its cool to see a few setups and more than just a few with interest. I know a few of you have been following the thread in the Corrado forum and just to inform everyone else, the M90 kit got the green light.. Its looking out to be a complete charger kit for under 1000 bucks and you just have to do piping.. We chose the M90 not because of size, but because of availibility [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      man just do the piping to complete the kit. even if its a low $$ option.
      i'd also do a FMIC option as well (with piping). since the eaton makes more heat a good fmic would go on there as well.
      don't forget to offer S Porting of the eaton and such too.
      every bit counts

      That is true however I am not sure as to the cost of the machine work yet.. I dont want the cost of the kit to deture anyone, so I guess I will have to see what the price will be to do everything..

      If it's going to be a "cheap" Bolt on kit, then just try to tie it into the factory, or eurosport tubing, then have something for an air filter.

      156whp isn't bad consider most g60's are in the 160's on a good day..
      i bet if you setup the choices of boost at the same 15psi you'd get a +/-10psi spread at best.
      but the cost to the pocketbook spread would be much wider!

      Sam, are you still doing the custom G60 chips? I've almost got this M90 retro done ( raising a little girl and countless other things had me stopped for a while ), and I REALLY would like to get in touch with you on this...
      Would you please IM me your phone #? I used to have it a while back, but I've lost it. I know you're the man to talk to about the G60 management system, and if you still have the desire and the equipment to make those custom chips, I'm in the market.

      To explain things a bit here is why I decided to go eaton.
      First reason...they are cheap and releable. If by chance i do blow one up its easy to find a replacement.
      Second reason, while the lysholm does yeild more power, that damn whine would drive me NUTS, while the eaton's sound is MUCH less ear pearcing
      Third, with my head porting I was only seeing 10 psi out of my G60 with a 65mm pully, so if i can get that out of an eaton as well ill be making the same power and staying in the eatons happy range!
      Now then My original plan was to use a M62 at 10 psi and then slap a turbo on top of it(and try out some different layouts and configurations to see what works best) in an effort to bust jwatts balls and make 300whp.....it could happen!
      That M90 just kind fell into my lap to i figured why not try it out as well, and compare it with the M62 and G60.
      Anyway I have two chargers laying around and my car is still at the bodyshop so the waiting continues

      Lysholms don't whine, BBM kits whine.

      because the kenne bell package is an oem replacement for the eaton that would hvae existed on the car previously.. and they DO have a "silencer kit".. it's called putting the throttle body prior to the charger, and having a bypass valve. soon as you hit WOT or somewhere near it.. any kennebell package is gonna whine like a mother.. it's a side effect of the internal workings of a twin screw compressor.
