Remote mount turbo project
« Reply #460 on: 08:18:42 PM / 14-Aug-10 »
I went with rustoleum, their gun metal is way darker. I have had it on there for a year with no clear coat and lots of dirt road. Paint still shines great.

i found the new site,it looks great.....i upgraded to a 90 amp Maxima alternator and sent the T3 for a overhaul..he did a great job..i can finally reclock the in/out oil ports to the correct position.

Unfortunately the turbo didnt last a day...it stopped making any boost and started to smoke...i dropped it down for inspection, which is a breeze with a remote turbo, and there is major play in the shaft...up and down play....i called him up and he was already pushing the blame on me...old oil...old oil lines...to much back pressure from cat...he says he is sick of working on these turbos and its to much trouble?..i wish he would of told me that while i placed the order...anyway,its on its way back to him,hopefully he does the right thing!!....i reinstalled an old spare turbo and its boosting great..i should of just used this but after reading all the positive feedback at z31performance.com it seemed like a safe bet...
...i will say the Maxima 90 amp alternator is working excellent..its making a solid 14+volts.

Should have had Iggy do it. I'm sure he wouldn't of said he is tired of rebuilding "these" turbos. What ever that means. As far as I know the center section on your turbo is very common and comes apart and goes together just like any other Garrett. I would have told that guy if he is tired... retire. Anyways I hope it all works out for you. I enjoy reading your thread so keep us updated.

i had to repair the AFM again...it seems a down side of a blow through set up is the AFM lid keeps popping off under boost...since it was apart, i decided to make a internal connection to monitor its output voltage...inside the AFM are tabs that can be accessed for a clean installation...i drilled a small hole in the lid and fed the wire through...made up a stronger batch of JB WELD epoxy to seal it shut!

i got the turbo back and installed and its running great again...he went through it again and shipped back at his expense...it cost 265 total,which included rebuild,extracting 5 snapped bolts and shipping to NY...He said it was oil starvation to the bearings....i have increased the feed line from 3/16 to 1/4"...i'll be monitoring it closely.
oil feed at 12:00

so far i'm happy with this turbo...reclocking the oil lines to the 12 and 6 has eliminated oil problems...i can hear the BOV releasing the backup pressure earlier now.

The Mocal pump started to get leaky again...instead of buying another rebuild kit i decided to try a Shurflo 8000-643-210 unit...its recommended from the LS1.com users who run remote setups... its also a quieter pump.

i took my Eclipse 1G turbo bov to a exhaust shop and had it mounted on a correct size pipe for my set up...i needed a upgrade over the Saab bov because it wasnt holding the increased boost...1G are known to hold much better.

i like it...you cant hear it running/vibrating as loud as the Mocal pump....seems to be working great...no smoke/leaks[keeping fingers crossed].

..the Ig bov is installed...T3 is overhauled...new oil return pump....filled the alky injection reservoir with 100% meth and set it at 2psi activation...set the timing at 22...dialed the boost to 15psi....and took it for three 0-60mph runs...best was 5.2 seconds....clutch doesnt want to hold the boost anymore!!...its time to upgrade.

..i put together a better air inlet for the turbo...eliminated the 300sx multi-bend pipes and replaced with a shorter and straighter pipe...it feels much better...comparison of the old and new.

i started pulling off the upper intake today to prep it for the ACADIANAMOTORSPORTS HEAT SPACER kit...i decided to block off the EGR port, remove the fuel pressure hot solinoid, and bypass the coolant that feeds the passanger side of the upper intake....i have deleted the T/B coolant lines in the past and with these new changes it should make the upper intake much cooler.....while i had the T/B off, i port matched the the intake so it matches perfectly with the 60mm t/b gasket..Dremel tool did it fast!!
