My Bf Xr6 Na Engine With Turbo

Recommended Posts

Na not yet. I'm holding off for a little while. Hopefully at the end of the year I'll get a new turbo, go external gate and new exhaust.
I think I've decided on a turbo, S300SXE 91/80 with 1.00ar rear housing.

Looks like the coolant line from here.

both of them are in compromised positions, but of course you're right that the coolant line is more in a risky position for heat purposes.

Had the powerglide serviced and checked today. It's been really good, no issues but it's done nearly 1000kms since we built it so thought it would be worth being check. All good, looks healthy. It's catch can is empty and there's no leaks anywhere.

Finally got a dyno sheet printed out haha, torque drops pretty quickly towards to high rpm but apparently due to turbo not keeping up.20200702_131909.jpg20200702_131621.jpg500d4f14ac13c4e7f11abf7e574f280c.jpg

If its the factory turbo and not the baby FG one, it wont be the turbo holding it back. Shows a nice 20psi constant.  It will be the 2 speed box and converter affecting the torque.

It drops to 17psi, you can see it start dropping off at about 4500rpm


It's a GCG built Garrett GT3582R

I've been looking at the BW S300SXE 91/80 with 1.00ar rear housing

You dont need to change the turbo.   You are making good power at 20psi.  The graph just reflects you gearbox  and torque convertor

Moved house last week, new house has a bar/recreation room and a workshop attached to the garage. Pretty neat setup

Also picked up a trailer for drag week next year for $180, done bearings and changed the wheel hubs to suit Ford wheels. Got rid of the rust and gave her a paint job.
