  1. Cool. Keep us updated with photos and stuff. I'm now going one step further with a mickey thompson 32x14 and narrowing the 8.8 another 16 inches.
  2. Can you repost the photo? It's not found. Thanks.
  3. Been reengineering the cooling system. Probably gonna need a looser converter too.
  4. Check out the jegs website. They are jegs ladder bars. I wouldn't want to quote you wrong.
  5. Close. Had to hammer to make clearance

  7. Well my current turbo is worn out. It has in-out shaft play as well as up-down. I've noticed max boost has been falling after nearly every run. I made several runs on 12-15-18, first pass max boost was 27psi, next two runs were 25psi. Then raced on saturday 1-5-19, max boost was 24psi. That's when i decided something must be wrong and gave the turbo shaft the wiggle test. Please explain the "quick spool valve". Thanks.
  8. Thanks. The borg warner 177281 comes with an open .88ar turbine housing. I can't find one for that model any smaller. I had a .82ar on my tc4305 and spool was around 4500rpm which is a little late for 1/8 mile drag racing. The BG turbine wheel is bigger and would technically be heavier and harder to spin but it seems also that it would drive the compressor wheel more easily? I guess the L28 is too antiquated to find someone actually drag racing one with the BG turbo lol. So I guess I'll be the guinea pig. The 2jz and rb guys use them frequently but I don't think those engines compare. As for injectors yeah I just upgrade from 550cc to 750cc. Went from 95% duty cycle to around 85% so They may need upgraded again.
