soooooooo - ive been distracted with an engine change up. Pulling this. . .
from the daily
and polishing this.
All for the caddy - Damn EW - why did you have to go and develop this nice VR mount kit and complicate my project.
After spending a bunch of time - and ordering a ton of parts. I decided to stick with the 1.6, and have some slow n low fun times. I change my mind alot
Hope to have photos of an engine in a bay, by next weekend. I've wasted a bunch of time going back and forth on plans. Hoping to make dust off and madness.
Picked up this diesel turbo kit for a dasher, a lot of the parts wont work (longitudinal styles). Although, it's a new turbo, and a box full of quirky nos, era turbo parts I didn't want to pass up. Local to boot.
The manifold I got is from a brazilian company that specializes in turbos. turbo anhanguera, I'm having a hard time researching them, as I fail at speaking portuguese.
I'm mainly looking for a wastegate that will fit this crazy a s s flange of the manifold. If I have to, I will weld the holes and re-drill/ tap to fit whatever round flange type WG I find.
And yeah - these directions specifically are a joke.
I basically just need to plumb/ source a few bits, oil feed, return, and make up a DP. I have to make it as bolt on as possible before I can test fit it. I only get to travel/ work on it for 2 days a month of so.
Diesel looks boss

looking good homie!
not going to lie, when i saw you might be putting the vr in it i was like...
but the lump you chose looks perfect and will be a blast as well, good call....
a few main engine components are PC'd and the parts that can not be are painted with 3 coats of por-15 - then some are top coated - some are raw por.
Planning to do the same with the wheels - the inner barrels and interior are coated in por-15 - only the face is raw.
