      I would have already put on a vgt if it wasnt for a such a space issue. the only way i see that happening is a top mount and some kind of short runner on my car.

      For all the garrett snobs out there, the wheel size on my hx30 is between a 2871 and a 2876.

      Ebay, freshly rebuilt for 250 bucks. Came with the high pressure holset actuator for some shenanigans later on.

      Not a c-hair of shaft play either. They are tough to find, I know they were used on Case tractors, and I think the 4bt cummins from the frito lay trucks. Mine also has an anti-surge housing as well.

      is that dayly driven vehicle,how is the low down torque and how quick does is pickup when downshifting,like when you try to pass a semi on the highway?

      I'm building my kit now i want to run a hx 35 but the internal wastegate is set for 25psi and I'm planning on only running 7 or 8 to start off with. People say that you can wield the cup part of the wastegate shut ao you can run a external one but the whole is so small you might get boost creep?? What would I be able to do to run lower boost?

      You really need to know what kind of pressure your motor makes before you slap a restrictor on there. The oils specs are posted on the first page.

      Mine isn't running yet with the hx30, almost though.

      ok so this 7blade HX35 has some odd measurements... a 54mm inducer and a 76mm exducer...i thought it would be the same as the 8blade (56mm inducer/ 82mm exducer) with one less blade...can anyone else confirm the size of the 7blade? googling just shows a bunch of copy/pasted info saying it should be 56mm but no real confirmation.

      Sparknock there is a ton of info out there on that turbo. Afew sites like turbotalk.org, realhomemadeturbo.com are just afew sites. On rhmt there istalk of using arduino and ms to run a pwm table adjust the a/r side of the turbo for maximizing bspool and efficiency. I really suggest you check them out.

      yeah thats cool. would like to see some one get the VE working with the smart module on it. i have seen a VGT just like the one i have using a waste gate accuator like the vnt. worked well on the ISB cummins motor. i think they said it was hitting 25-28 psi by like 1800 rpms or so. i wonder if this mod was done could it be just as effective on a gas motor.

      Best price I've EVER seen. I wanted to wait another couple months but couldn't pass it up. They usually sell for twice as much or more.

      That and I lined me up a local second-hand supercharger off of a gt, once he gets the 4L whipple on there.

      Sparknock just go on turbotalk.org, realhomemadeturbo.com or homemadeturbo.com and search for user "aero"

      His is on a 2g dsm, running a 14b actuator to control the vgt and a tial to limit max boost. He was seeing ridiculous boost pressure under 3k.....how many 500whp turbos can do that?

      EDIT: this is the thread you may want to investigate http://www.turbotalk.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=4

      PSH it's just a gt42R. With both the supercharger and the turbo it should be fairly manageable

      did you ever get a chance to measure the wheel on that?

      Quintin do you want the turbine wheel measurement or compressor wheel? i had to change out the rad cuz the end tank dident want to live anymore so its back in the shop and i could pull the DP off to measure the small end of the wheel if you want.

      if you're really concerned about it, you can always buy a non-wastegated exhaust housing. i can't remember where I found them, but they were close to $200 new. just a lil fyi...

      Pretty interesting thread on a g6o with an 8v head. 280whp on 24 psi. I still have the stock holset actuator as well so i will be there at some point, and I should see over 300 whp with my 16v head.

      check my build thread, granted it hasnt been updated in a while. You can use another wastegate actuator from another car that has an adjustable rod and go from there. I got mine from a Saab 900 with a t25, and got a metric eyelet rod from ebay.

      I think its set for about 8si. If it doesnt work then tial and screamer pipe ftmfw

      On a second note I just got some extra v-band rings so i can have a nice open exhaust for H20
