Post subject:  Finally - boost!

The tune is very rough at this point, but I finally managed to get the new turbo setup into boost, making around 4 psi. This one's very different from Wayne's turbo build that I started with. Wayne's K-car turbo would build boost at 1500 RPM, but start running out of breath at 3000. For this new turbo, 3000 RPM is where the party's just getting started. Here's some pictures of the new build, a comparison of the turbos, and a screen shot from the data acquisition.

That TE04H was almost too small for a 2.5L, I think as is they are good for maybe 250Hp IIRC........

Congrats, Matt! Long time coming, so hopefully the party will continue with gusto from here...
