I haven't seen that one yet! It's pretty amazing that it just ate through the gears like that.

I did that to my Bus a couple times before I put on solid shafts, totally sucks changing oil pumps in parking lots in rainstorms, lol...All it took was a N/A 2-liter w/Engle W100 & HD singles.

Certain parts like lash caps can bind the gears and break the pump drive tang or cam. I always run a screen now.

CB deep sumps allow running the stock screen. This supports the pickup tube so it doesn't work loose where it presses into the block.

Yes that is the same cam I am running but this is on a type 3, so a lot more tinwork to remove to get to the pump.

Screen is in there, that's why I was surprised to find that clip in the pump and chewed up bits of metal in the filter.

I had a stock screen-too...both times, I've since picked-up some cow-magnets too. I think because of the greate distance to the umbrella objects are more likely to slide off the inside of the case's opening and wedge themselves between the tube and screen until they work their way past...You know, I think that motor had stock 043 duals afterall.

What is a cow magnet? Never seen one or heard of one.

IMHO screens are to restrictive,, Here's what I've been doing :wink: I always check for leaking pickup tube where it enters the case ,soapy water and put a lip lock on it :lol: ,If I see bubbles :cry: I remove and JB weld it 8) and Braze on the extention and JB it too :wink: attach a Magnet I've notched with a good clamp,Madmike

Hi all!

I thought this would be the best place to vent frustrations rather than starting a new thread. There are many reasons why not to turbocharge a stock 1600, but throwing caution to the wind I did it anyway. I have a turbo slightly larger than a gt1544 which I thought would have good spooling characteristics, especially with a ceramic turbine wheel. After hours of checking and sealing intake and exhaust leaks, I still can't achieve better than starting at 3400 and full boost at 3800. I was hoping for 2800 and 3200. Oh well back to the drawing board of smaller turbo or larger engine.

I will be using a .36 a/r exhaust housing on a t3. I am hoping for early spool as well. What exhaust are you using? Off the shelf or custom? With what tubing size?

There is nothing wrong with a garrett t2. Boost is boost and the t2 has worked well for many people. Check for exhaust leaks in you header. are you using a turbo header or a home made unit?

Hi,

The header is poor quality "bugpack" I did weld thick flanges in place of the standard. The j-tubes also have welded flanges with metal gaskets. I welded a 2 inch up pipe to the turbo from the collector mandrel bent. I have tested the header to 15 psi along with the intake manifold and intercooler piping using compressed air and pressure gauge. While doing this, I found MANY leaks and sealed most of them, but it will not hold perfect pressure such as a tire would at 32 psi.

So in short I don't expect much with the money I've spent. "Speed cost money... So how fast do you want to go?"

Here is a datalog I took on the way home from work (third gear pull). I'm running the wide band before the turbo (I know big NO NO) which is why I allow the engine to run rich at higher RPM. I'm very pleased with the air to water intercooler though. I boxed in a nissan SR-20 240sx intercooler and run water through the area that would normally be cooled by ambient air. Damn thing works allright!

The first IHI RHB5 turbo I ran on a 1600 would give me full boost at 3500-3800 rpm and it had 2 inch diameter compressor inlet and turbine outlet. I would get a little lag when shifting into third gear but I attributed that to going lean at that time also. It was a lot more fun than a stocker that's for sure.
The turbo I am now running is also an IHI RHB5 and it has a compressor inlet and turbine outlet of 1 3/4 inch and it is pretty well full boost at 3000 rpm. My header is a cobbed together cheap sedan header and homemade up pipe.
It's not ideal but it didn't cost $500.00 either.
Don't give up too soon. Make sure your AFR's are good and since you have FI you can play with the fuel and ignition and might get it to work better.
I sealed most of the joints and gaskets of the header with a thin coat of copper seal and it does the trick.

Just be careful to not use too much so that chunks squeeze out and go through the turbine on the way out........
