Re: Best T3 manifold for the money?

I ended up using an emusa cast manifold but had to Port the **** outta it on all runners and the wastegate outlet. At the end of the day I believe it was choking my exhaust at around 320whp....I just removed it and I'm selling it, along with the custom downpipe and knock off tial wastegate setup. Fo...

Re: Thought I'd share $198 obx t3 manifold

Just wanted to give an update, I was going to use this full setup with my 4 bolt holset hx35, my plan was to ust remove the 5 bolt flange from the downpipe and weld on a 4 bolt... but upon removing the flange from the downpipe I realized the piping looked kinda narrow... Measured it and it was barel...

I haven't logged in here in a long ass time, but like others have said....very nice to see something different being done.

I myself am finally getting around to working on my 240 now that I'm unemployed 🤣

Re: Timing chain symptoms?

Funny I never thought about the firmware....I have to give that a shot! Appreciate your offer to share the tune but I got a bunch of stuff to try first!

I personally feel that it is a mechanical timing issue but I have to verify its not drifting at high RPMs....wish I was back in fl to work on it 😑

Re: How to run LS1 Coils

I had a similar issue with the coils seeming kinda weak and not much of an improvement over the stock system. Then I decided to wire the power source for the coils directly to the battery in conjunction with a fused relay system. I ended up being able to run 18 psi on a .40 gap with a t28. These car...

Timing chain symptoms?

Been a long time....I know. Some of you might remember my t2 setup in the dyno section making 280hp 340tq. Alot of folks said I should have been able to crack 300....never happened. Torque just fell of a cliff after 5000rpm like most stock 240s do. I got to briefly play with my new hx35 and tomei 27...

If your engine is healthy, just rebuild it with fresh gaskets, rings, bearings and a felpro head gasket with ARP headstuds. Lots of folks end up spending thousands on forged inter...

Re: Thought I'd share $198 obx t3 manifold

Don't know yet, still haven't gotten to finish my build and tune on current cast manifold....I want solid numbers and logs before I switch so I can share real world numbers.....this was just too cheap to pass up as a backup.

Re: 1,000hp ka24det

So 250hp per cylinder is no easy,reliable or cheap task.

And honestly I don't think a KA is the best choice...add a few more cylinders to divide the stress and youre goal becomes much more feasable.

Mind you I'm also a big ka fan.

That's a good fun turbo setup, with a proper tune you'll make close to 350wtq and around 260-300whp with stock cams and 100 octane.

Still here, working...not giving the 240 much love...its sitting in the garage with the new holset hx35 setup. Just no time to finish it.

My wrx got totaled by a deer about a month back on my commute home
from work. But i got a new stinger gt1 to replace it.

Hope all is well with you fellas.

Re: What Boost gauge do you use and why?

All their sending units have extremely sturdy weatherproof connections...and if i remember correctly..the gauges can be daisy chained for easy installation. Speedo was nice with its gps connection not having to calibrate anything or worry about my j30 diff and wheels throwing off the speedo.
