Re: Turbo technics spec

Hi folks. Does anyone know the turbo spec used on the TT single kit (2.8)? I would like to know the turbine A/R and Compressor A/R. I did email TT but didn't get a reply....... All I seem to get able to find is that it was a T3..... Alternatively, if anyone has fitted a T3T4 hybrid, what A/R worked...

Re: Exhaust recommendations

In my experience, Powerflow items themselves actually restrict power! When you think how much time and money goes into designing an exhaust system for a specific car, how good are custom made systems and do they really work that well :? Stock exhaust manifolds and 2x 2.5" marine grade stainess stee...

Re: Use Allen Heads

You could use Allen head (socket hex head) bolts. They need to be 10mm x1.0 pitch. They aren't easy to find but I found them somewhere as I have four in my desk drawer. I'll try to find out where they came from here in the States. I presume you are in the States? Don Remember to use extra high tens...

Re: 2.8 Camshafts and timing gear

V6T21 Is one of the best cams there is available if you want power and torque. Valve duration is perfect there is no overlap in that cam type. I am making over 600nm torque at 4900rpm and fuel economy is pretty good at 1800 to 2200rpm area. It is drive-able at 1600+rpm. Idle at 900 to 1000rpm. Avera...

Its good for camshaft and rockers, especially for older engine and to car that doesnt' have catalytist converters. ZDDP reduces alot catalytist converters lifetime. Thats why the won't use ZDDP a...
