Yea, me too bro. I just have to grab a T3 turbine housing for my GT2871R and a TIAL 44mm gate then the fun begins.looks good sox, cant wait to see it finished! :dance:
:yeahthat:have you dynod the gt2871r on your greddy manifold so we can have real data on how much power the F-R manifold gives you. I can't wait to see the new setup.
:woowoo:Warning: this thread is liable to contain lethal levels of WIN....
Yea, GReddy just isn't cutting it anymore. Even with the upgraded turbo, the greddy mani is strangling my motor and my fuel mileage is not where it should be. The upgraded flow of this manifold combined with the MUCH larger T3 framed turbine flange will just let this motor breath soo much better. I'm also doing 9.0:1 forged pistons and forged rods in my extra Z3 block at the same time. No more messing around with the high compression. 20psi here I come. The GT2871R should make minimum 400whp EASY at 20psi. :dancing:uh oh!! another greddy owner-boost addicted is comming out and play!! awesome man congrats! like to see what happens!!!
That was the plan but I would actually have to have it tuned to be able to get a true power number. Since I added the Apexi AVCR my boost is WAY more stable and at the higher RPM it is going way lean. And It's just too risky to go WOT to the limiter without proper tuning. The other problem is I will have different internals when this is all done so there will be no comparison. I don't want to have to drop the motor twice.:yeahthat:
Mike it'd be a huge help to the community if you could do this before and after dyno for this part. Of course we know it'll make great power, but the proof would be awesome. I'm sure FR would appreciate it as well
Unfortunately no. I was planning on getting it tuned once I got a real boost controller but now I don't want to waste the money on it. Also, see above posts for further info on this subject.also, did u ever get a chance to dyno your current setup?
