went down to Autolusso in Bourenmouth today..Turbo off and over to Turbo dynamics in Christchurch for a look at the VNT and stop screw calibration, once again it was noted that the variances on the Garret factory spec is HUGE! some adjustments were made and i am happy to report it has been a great success , the turbo pulls harder and stronger for longer, throughout the rev range...the car feels like it has gained another 20 HP! spool is now happening at around 1600-1700 rpm so the car is now on boost a good 300 rpm earlier than before.
well worthwhile looking at this again, so thanks to all the lads at AL Bournemouth for getting the turbo off in double quick time ,lending me a giggle of a GTV to drive over to Christchurch with the Turbo and putting the whole car back together with fresh oil ,filter a nice clean K&N and also removing the anti shudder flap from inside the inlet mani....needless to say the car is EPIC!..
I also bought a set of powerflex bushes for my upper wishbones (which I promptly left behind)
also thanks to Matt at TD for good advice and getting the re-calibration of the turbo spot on!
Now very much looking forward to Friday when I go to Autolusso in Houghton Regis for my GTA clutch and SMF kit and a bit of mapping, happy days!
