    Hello chaps, About to rebuild my engine in preparation for going turbo, stock bottom end as I'm not going mental however ARP head bolts are in the post. Got an OEM gasket set on the way, but a few people have recommended fitting a thicker head gasket as it will lower the compression. I have...

    Hi Guys, my 1.6 eunos is soon to be turbo'd and im thinking it would be silly not to upgrade the brakes. Just wondering what everyone's running and what options are available without spending thousands of pounds? I'm more fond of the idea of getting a big brake kit for the front rather than...

    In the process of collecting parts for boosting, managed to pick myself up a TD04l-13T. Ill be aiming for around 240hp at the fly wheel, and a few friends suggested upgrading some of the gaskets which would be more comfortable coping with the added pressures that come with boosting. My question...

    The turbo conversion is coming in the near future and I've decided to go for the TD04-13t as my weapon of choice. Where is the best place to get one from? I see G19 Engineering have a reconditioned one up for £370 (out of stock however), and similar places generally up for around the £400 mark...

    Hey guys, two weeks ago I put the car under the knife and a turbo conversion done by the M-Tech Automotive.

    Come on own up, who has gone FI and not done a boost leak test? I've been boosted for almost a year and only got round to doing it today. My setup is below: It consists of a PVC end cap which has a tyre valve and a pressure gauge screwed into it. The tyre valve is ideal as it has a nut on...

    Unfortunately I will be breaking my car so for sale is my full turbo kit built up and improved over the years. I've been running this at 10psi producing ~200bhp flawlessly with a lot of room to improve with a decent tune and more boost! This is not a cheap kit and will be capable of providing...

    I have build my own over the rad IC for my rotrex SC c30/74, I'm getting about 1.1 bar boost. The problem is that my IC seems to be to small. My IAT rises from 40 degree Celsius to 65 in no time under boost....I've used an IC from a maserati. Now I'm looking for an upgrade but don't know what...

    Which boost control solenoids are people using with enhanced MS2's etc? Rev says any with 2 wires. Are there usable ones from a factory vehicles that are easy to get hold of in the UK? Cheers guys.

    OK this may seem like a weird question, but hear me out. For those who don't know, 'scramble boost' is a function, usually button operated (though sometimes operated from a detent on full throttle) for when 'MOAR' is needed from the engine. Usually found on turbo engines, the basic principle...
  19. Forced Induction & N/A Power Mods
    I have the chance to get my hands on a IHI VF24 turbo and I am interested to know if anyone has used one before and how they got on with it. It seems to be comparable to the TD04, so I'm hoping that it would see roughly similar results. I also want to know why people haven't used them as I...
