  • Twin Charged

    So parts have been coming in last week and fedex just dropped off a bunch of parts today. Project started yesterday will the tear down.

    G60 Corrado Lysholm 53mm pulley currently boosting 20 psi at 6000 RPM, 12 psi at 2K. Going to try and help that a little with this.




    .60/.63 T3 Turbo will be compounding the boost and hopefully bring up the bottom end boost numbers and maintaining the pressure all the way to redline without sacrificing lag.

    Day 1

    (or night1) one damn intake bolt stripped on me and I was fitting it for over 2 hours. Needed a break and to collect my self so a late night Taco Bell run with the girlfriend and came back with a new game plan. Got the bolt out, I guess all I needed was a little food in me and she is sitting with the intake, exhaust manifold, and down pipe all on the floor next to her. Hopefully tonight I can test fit the turbo manifold and bolt up the turbo.

    Day 2.

    Jake came over to play a bit. We bolted up the turbo manifold. Its just an 8v manifold so nothing special. Fit was dead on so I thought we were doing good. Well, that thought didn't last long. After clocking the turbo and wastage there is just about no clearance on the cold side to the firewall. Jake started taking apart the interior and became spiderman and crawled under the dash to see how much inside clearance we had to "move" the firewall. After a hour or so of figuring we wouldn't hurt anything, we broke out the 5 lb and a 2x2. Some persuasion and the firewall was a lot further back than we thought we could move it.

    So next was bolting the turbo up again. Perfect!!!! (so we though). There is now enough room to stick your entire hand behind the turbo. Next was to test fit the intake manifold. We cut off a tab that was not needed (what really is needed on the corrado intake manifold anyways). Surprising a cutoff wheel is slower than a cheep wood hand saw lol. Set it in and ... crap the .60 A/R cold side it hitting the intake manifold. After countless ties to take the turbo out, reclock it, put it back loose and clock it, there is no way to get it to clear. I was just going to get a smaller turbo :cry: but Jake wouldn't have it lol.

    We decided that we can space the turbo back (towards the clearance firewall we just made). So this morning I'm having a 1/2" spacer cut and if anyone has a t3 inlet gasket for sale, let me know. I clearance some firewall some more so hopefully, we will still have room with the spacer.

    Here she is though in there. Looks like the intake/charge pipe and down pipe should be relatively easy to route. Crossing my fingers

                    With only one stripped bolt you are off to a lucky start. Old rounded out allens are the bane of my existance!

                              Welll.... I may have laid on some plastic things and broke some flimsy shit.... but we figured if we sacrifice some cheap plastic to the volkswagen gods they would be kind in return and not let any expensive stuff go out.
