When you install a boost kit...   2004-01-18 15:33:00 <Cully Paterson>
I find it advisable to actually connect the correct hoses in the correct place. That way when you select 'LOW' the controller doesn't attempt to hit 35psi every time you put your foot down... <blush>

Anyway, the EVC-IV is in place and working properly now. It's damn cool to be able to hit the scramble-boost button and watch the needle rocket upwards as the express train collides with your kidneys :)

Cheers
Cully
(now playing on a road near you at 17psi once more...)

Sounds good cully.

Would you have an idea on what you could expect, in rwd kw with the folling set up (on the 7M of course).

3inch exhaust from turbo,
pod filter
550's
lexus afm
boost tap

and whatever small bits you need to crank 18psi??

running on 18psi!!

cheers

Yep, you could expect a blown turbo fairly quickly... A CT26 won't handle
18psi for very long.

You might squeeze 240kw out of it.

What about with the T04 compressor wheel??

It's not the compressor end that's the problem - it's the crappy turbine
end.

does having a big turbine end (on any turbo) a good thing? I mean it would
mean it would spool up faster right??

um, slower.
much more rotational inertia.. the whole reason for twin-turbos.
