yup, gonna go gte. heres what im thinkin....its a k03 from an audi/vw 1.8L. (Freakin Tiny) Depending on what the stock wastegate spring is, im either gonna change it out to something smaller, or install a spring that pushes in the opposite direction(IE 8Lb spring-5Lb counter spring=3Lbs) Its a 1g Dsm SMIC, with a 12" fan from a mazda.The fansgonna be mounted underneath the IC, with a water sprayer/squirter in between the fan and the HE. Thats just a cheapo ebay bov, but ive modded it so that the plunger wont get stuck on the flange, like ive heard some people complain about. People on the dsm forums have been talking about these boost controllers, so i guess ill give it a shot. its a ball and spring type, and it looks like itll work. Im thinkin 4 pounds at first, just to have a little extra, but stay in one peice.
Heres my question...what sort of management would be safe. ive heard that 4 pounds isnt enough to justify megasquirt, so should i look into an fmu, or can i cheat, by upping base fuel pressure and clicking the afm back a tad? if i get greedy, which i prolly will, and blow the engine, im gonna keep the same setup, but rebuild with gze internals in a 7 rib block, and then i will look into an ems.
what do you guys think?
