T04E Super 54 trim with .48 A/R Stage III turbine







Kai can fill you in on the details.

$5 says he loses traction in first gear once it spools. :D

Gee, I would hope so! I, with my meager upgrades, lose traction on the 2nd gear...and if the ground is a little wet, all the way to 3rd!!!

Nice and clear pictures!

Well hopefully the torque steer won't put him in a ditch, lol.

Hehe..thanks for posting the pics. I think it's .63 A/R Stage III turbine, though. http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif I need to double check that later today.

Re: Needs More Boost! (The_one_n_only)

Sigh...
SUPER!

To be honest, I don't understand a thing about these turbo's.
The inlet diameter looks a lot smaller compared to the 19T compressor.
Can you post any measurements?
The 19T diameter is ~1,875"
A/R .63 should make it a high rev spooling turbo.
Probably above 3500 RPM.
I guess this is what you want for dragging?

Here is says .63, inside the turbine inlet.

LoL~! Yes, it's a lot bigger than just 1.875 inches for the inlet. According to Turbonetics' site, the one I have 2.75 inches. I'd hope it's a lot bigger than the 19T. http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif

Not necessary just for dragging, and I hope this turbo will not going to be just for that. If I was going for that, I'd have gone even higher A/R or just simply a straight T4 and no ball bearing option. It would have been a lot cheaper and easier. http://********************/smile/emwink.gif Or T66? http://********************/smile/emcrook.gif

With the 19T the S60 topped the 300 HP barrier today!!
302 HP at the wheels!! 338 lb-ft of torque.
I didn't believe is when I saw it....

Re: Needs More Boost! (JRockCLS)

If I had to guess I'd say Kai was on the high side of 350whp before he went back to regular 94 Octane and put the cat on to go pass the emissions test.

I can't wait to see what the new turbo brings.

Re: Needs More Boost! (Johann)

That's pretty decent for that tiny turbo~! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Yeah, if the silly internal wastegate was able to hold the boost, I'd like to find out what kinda power I was pushing. The speedo and the tach was moving a lot faster than most of the ones I've seen. http://********************/smile/emwink.gif

This new turbo should be interesting. http://********************/smile/emlove.gif Can't wait....

I think I'll just have them installed the unit along w/ the external WG, then let TurboXS guy do the tuning.

BTW, JRock, there's a topic about the CL-S 3.5L conversion in the car lounge session, maybe you want to share something with people there. http://********************/smile/emwink.gif

Re: Needs More Boost! (The_one_n_only)

It looks like the standard solenoid can't hold the boost.
With the BC and it's solenoid I do not have any boost problems except some whobling behavior at half throttle where it looks like it can't get a constant setting.
this is only when I run the 1.3 bar setting.
With 1 bar and 1.1 all is fine.
The wastegate itself (300/70) can hold boost without problems.

Re: Needs More Boost! (Johann)

I'm not too sure if that is the problem, though....since it's still holding up when going upwards near 1.5 bar. Hard to say...we'll find out soon enough. Just need to pass my emission test first before any more funky stuff.

Re: Needs More Boost! (C70SPEED)

You will not be able to fit that 19T on your C70, and with the money you are going to spend, why don't you get something like the one I'm selling. Not simply advertising what I'm trying to sell, but just confused me why people are spending all these big $$$ buying factory turbos.
