  1. I was hoping for some feedback on these as I know nothing about them they are more expensive aren't they? Block was built to handle 1000hp. I'm in no rush and sounds great txs. My car has sat in the shed on stands for 18 months another few wont hurt. Only concern is u have 2.5 L mine is basically 2.1. Who is building yours and running it. Are u worried about getting e85 now? How did u establish it's the best turbo for spool up? Going to stick twisted setup for now too much work relocating to fog light cover area is what I think your basically saying.
  2. Not in my experience to be honest, car has been tuned by: GCP DTech HItech None of these locked the ecu. Haven't heard of them, dont mind travelling if tuner is worth it.
  3. Maybe I need to just keep the flexi fuel and go g30 . Nice video , haven't seen that before dont think i would use pbms was going e and h but the fact they lock the ecus after tuning has stopped me.pickimg them too. 340 kwatw is good just wished he stated boost pressure. As mine is not a daily i should probably stick to g30 770. Need to find tuner now.
  4. Thanks some good videos. I am leaning towards going g25 660 as I want better response. The last video is with a gen 2 version of my turbo, I only have the gen 1 turbo so perhaps this would give me what I want on 98 Ron and same boost. Seems g30 660 definitly would. I'm not that bothered about higher hp up top, more interested in response. 400wkw is quick enough really. Just unsure if the g25 will get there on 98 and not the e85 I needed on the old 3071 turbo.
  5. Haven't been on here for a few years but I'm out of touch of the current turbos on offer. I'm looking to get the car retuned, remove flexi fuel and upgrade turbo but I would like to hit same power on 98 with new turbo as the setup with e85. The car has had everything modified on it, the short block is built to take 1000hp but I only run it at 405kwatw on e85 30psi boost on the very first gen gtx3071 r turbo with 0.63 ex housing. I want to replicate these numbers but with a new generation turbo which should give at least 20% power increase over current turbo but been out of touch so interested what the beat choice would be these days, I'm leaning towards g30 660 or 770 options but open to all turbo types. Even thinking gt25 would suit. I Got no interest in Steve murch turbos so discount him. Help would be appreciated. Txs
  6. I bought from kelford, they are described as 6 degree radius beadlocks, there were 11 bucks each not inc gst. Will be more now as all the other things I bought were, this was a year ago. They are far bigger than OEM. I bought the same crank for mine too mo brainer , cheap really considering it's OEM. Wish u could just insert pics in these posts the link to url is a pain in the ass.
  7. I bought kelfords beehive springs, larger tappets, their valves and cams. Put these in my car and it didn't make a huge difference to power levels around extra 10wkw. I did have reprofiled cams before though through Franklin so didn't expect too much. Getting the larger tappets In which hold the springs in on the valves is a bloody hard job, they are around 50% bigger than th OEM part. I've built my own heads a number of times now and these are way harder to assemble but are worth it as they are far better at holding the valve, spring etc in place, reccomend them. I line bored my crank too and has extra dowels In there to help hold it together.
  8. Already did last page it seems, cant remember doing it.
  9. Mine is 403.5kw now, but doubt this is updated anymore.
  10. Gettint rid of my daily forester 97, manual turbo. 225k. Is it best I just list as a dollar reserve on trade me. Car needs Cambelt change, new oil pump, hardline coolant hose from turbo to header tank, and gearbox bushings. Not going to lie about condition of car just want best price. Should I consider Turner's or scrap yards? Or go trade me as u wont beat the price on there?
  11. Good call on normal cars but mine has a 5 bar upgrade and aftermarket ecu, I was always told it's not safe above 25psi on 98. You are on water/meth which may give a bit of security, I don't know much about water meth setups.
  12. I only have 0.63 turbo housing on my car and got decent power, but I agree would be a lot easier to make power with 0.82 housing just have to way up the lag aspect.
  13. I put money on the fact the 272 Cams if from Franklin are not what they say they are if regrinds. probably stock lift. I got rid of mine as they were called very mild as I had them checked by kelford, mine supposed to be 276 but weren't and basically lift was left stock. How much porting on ur heads? I don't understand why everyone praises v3 heads, I've seen them next to other heads v6 etc and there is no difference in port size, I don't get it. Late model Legacy heads 2004 ish are far bigger ports from factory and when ported more flow a lot more than v3 ever would. I would have thought u hit a higher number than that, one thing that worries me though is that no tuning shop I have used would go above 25 psi on 98 fuel as its too much of a risk.
  14. Aftermarket equal length bought from a rally car in Christchurch, custom made down there by engineering shop but nothing special really 1.5 inch runners I believe, 4-1 style 2.5 inch up-pipe. I have been told to buy a late model legacy twinscroll headers they are cheap and great upgrade for twinscroll setup, I'm still single scroll. Racefab quoted me 3k for headers only, twin scroll type, so didn't bother. I don't think the OEM setup u going for will restrict it that much so depending on turbo can't see why u can't hit ur number. Intercooler and radiator is just cheap type from redline performance still use OEM fans and shroud never had overheating issues, and exhaust is 0.63, yep its a big limiter on power maybe. Who tuned ur car?
  15. In case anyone cares the stuff at gull e85 is only registering as e60 now, no where near 85%.
