I'm going to try to fit in a visit to Powerstation in Tewkesbury sometime soon:



This is where a lot of the other UK 850's have gone to be dyno'd, so should allow for direct comparison of results.

I'll donate $20 to Turbobricks if anyone guesses the crank horsepower that the MAHA RAM3000 declares.

Current state of the engine:

H-beam rods
Ported head with back-cut valves
VXR injectors
Enlarged MAF/intake pipework/throttle body
19T with the angled flange outlet
New wastegate actuator
Ferrita 3" downpipe with 100 cel cat, 2.5" cat-back exhaust
Ported exhaust manifold
Tune to support the above.

I'd say 280-310 is in the right ballpark.

So, what did it do?

Not made it there yet, I'd hope for a bit more than that (measured at the crank).

I'll try to get there in the next couple of weeks.

280-310whp is 330-360bhp. That's really good for a 19T.

With your bottom end a 2871R or 3071R would be insane. Ask me how I know ;)

How you doing mate? Its finally all red again then. My 850R is coming off the road week after next for 'UPGRADINGS' haha. I have K24 and lots of other goodies to go on, should see me make good HP then.
Then i can see how the AWD likes that...

Damn that was a long time ago. I remember a particularly fun night where that car scared the **** out of a few unsuspecting cyclists.

Got bored, sold it. Bought a C30. Had a baby, now I need a wagon again. Typical story...

Sticking to my "once every 18 months" updates, to say that my turbo (a 19T) is very poorly.

It is very rapidly approaching Norwegian Blue status, so I need to replace it.

I'm thinking about the following options - help me decide, Turbobricks Hive Mind.

1. Replace the 19T with a new one. Simplest and cheapest option - £900/$1,400 and ~340 bhp at the flywheel
2. Replace the 19T with a new one, and replace the intercooler, all pipework, larger MAF. £1,800/$2,800 and ~370bhp at the flywheel
3. Garrett 2871R, intercooler, pipework, yada yada. £2,500/$3,900 and ~400bhp at the flywheel.

In each case the car will be mapped for the application, and the engine has rods etc already in place.

Open to other suggestions, also - and if anyone in the US has a 2871R still in the box that they are currently using to prop a door open, please feel free to send it my way.

Do you race road bikes? Sweet wagon and great color! My dad and I picked up an 05 R in Sweden and went to the Euro GP at the Nurburgring too, way too fun! Though a Volvo wagon gets no cred on the autobahn, nothing like the 02 911TT we picked up, people got the hell out of the way then!

What road bikes do you ride? You should put a rack on that car!

Ok, I am now at "grasping at straws" level of diagnosis.

Problem: turbo should make 1.4 bar, it's making ~0.8 bar.

Shaft spins freely, no play. Waste gate sealing well, 100 cell cat checked with bore-scope and was peachy.

No boost leaks.

Removed line from BCS to actuator- still not making boost.

Bad turbo? Bad actuator?

I would vote bad actuator. Try wiring the gate shut and carefully see if boost builds. The mitsu's in general had kinda weak springs in them. Might need to step up to a better actuator.

Car in neutral, bonnet open- revving it up to 7k and you can see the actuator arm moving ~10mm with the line from the BCS off.

To me this seemed to suggest the exhaust gasses are blowing the waste gate open. However, that might be total rubbish.

I'm beyond my capability level here I freely admit.

I'd toss an MBC on for testing purposes. If it doesn't build the boost you set to I'd go with bad WG. Can also pressure test the WG

Checked out the wastegate when the downpipe was off- looked and felt like it was "good", didn't pressure test it though. Did test with MBC- did not build boost correctly. Very slow to build the boost it did, also.
