I'm using a Garrett TB0350, which is pretty similar to the original TB03 but with a bigger compressor wheel. I went with that because I wanted an oil cooled turbo
Good luck! I've only seen two of these kits in Australia ever, one is mine, and the other is in use by another forum member. They seem to be more common in Sweden if you're prepared to do some international sleuthing. I can tell you though as I have been on this journey, some parts you can replace easily: Turbo Air…
The pin is definitely connected internally. Whether it does anything or not, I'm not sure. I get your line of thinking but coming at it as an engineer it's generally not safe to make those assumptions. If the ECU engineers did not intend for the WOT pin to be connected, but did not go so far as to delete whatever…
Why would it be programmed to ignore a signal it never expects to receive?
The ECU has some special fuel map for WOT is my understanding
Turbo models use low impedance injectors (green tops) so they also have extra wiring for the ballast. If. Using high impedance injects eg red tops from a V70 T5 then you do not need to add the ballast wiring. Other than that, as others have said, only differences are AMM loom length and deleted TPS WOT wire. I have heard…
Love a good vax N wax
Fuel system muddling continues. Supply and return lines removed, I noticed they have a bit of rust so maybe it was time anyway. I also pulled the vent line but it is in good shape so I think I will just re-fit it. I had to pull it either way as I'm re-arranging how the lines are grouped under the car, the vent line will…
I've now updated this thread - Nationals has moved from November 2021 to April 2022!
They shouldn't have any difficulties getting them flat, it's not exactly rocket science at the level of precision needed for a manifold. FWIW I once had to machine a head's exhaust flanges as they weren't flat and had pitting causing leaks.
If you want a good all-in-one portable kit I'm a big fan of the 106-piece Bahco set https://www.totaltools.com.au/69265-bahco-106-pce-1-4-and-1-2-drive-socket-and-spanner-set-metric-and-sae-s106 Like @Spac I started out with a 1/4 and 3/8 Kincrome set and it was many years before I bought a 1/2" set
