      you gotta put the turbo on it first and see where your exhaust and intake piping will be that way you know where to put the wastegate. you don't want to get it done and find out its going to be in the way.

      Truth, this man speaks it.

      Yea def a good idea, so I should probably buy a flange and a wastegate. I already have this setup in my mk2 except with a g60 block and mk2 head. Mine has a T3 Super 60 with an internal wastegate on the side and I hate it. I need something better.

      Intercooled, 440's, good turbo, c2 programming?... you should be able to run 20lbs of boost.

      no c2, been on megasquirt for almost 2 years. turbo should get the job done for now.

      Something about an aba turbo makes me just want to hug it. Its just such a wholesome beast of a setup. I cannot wait to swap an aba into the next mk2 I find.

      It's DONE. just took it for a quick spin around the block. still need to figure out fueling with my g60 injectors since the #42s i got from a vortex member seem to be clogged. I set the mixture plenty rich but im still leaning out at full boost 13.4 i'll tweak it some more tomorrow and see what it does. video coming soon, just need to find someone with a camera

    25. 05-12-2009 12:10 AM #50
      I'd go bigger than 440 if you're going to buy injectors again. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Siemens 60lbs would be good.
