Brandi has earned that space... I suppose we are still waiting on information or something on the turbo's.... Can't wait to find out their recommendations...

I'm going to send Corey an e-mail for an update later today...

Thanks Mike, It's good to hear from you... I'm really glad to be back, though it is proving to be quite brutal... I didn't realize how much of a couch potato I had become...

The work pace is killing me, but I'll plug along as best I can... We did finally pass the acceptance by Pemex and we go on contract at midnight tonight... I imagine there will be a fleet of work boats showing up tonight and tomorrow... oh well...

Are you still enjoying the new job...???

Following are e-mail exchanges between Corey and I...


Hey Brother...

Wondering if you have any updates...

The turbo's are in process, been billed for them already, not sure when to expect them. The delrin finally came in so I can make your rear diff mount and get the diff installed. Trany is still waiting to go in as well. The holidays of course were a mess but things are getting wrapped up finally on some lingering stuff laying around. I think next week I'll be able to get everything but the turbo's installed on your car unless they come in by then. The inlets are bigger so I'll need to figure out the silicone couplings once I have them in my hands. They should bolt right on though, no major mods, so that is nice.

Couple of things...

I am going to order an AMS 1000 when I get home... Would it help to go ahead with that and set the turbo's up with it rather than using the springs since we have it apart... If so, I'll see if I can go ahead and order it from out here and have it drop shipped unless you have a good contact for that.. Precision??? or one of your other contacts... Cheapest I've found it is a lil over 950.00

Do you have the pieces we need to add in the oil cooler/s so that we can move that big goofy looking oil cooling thing off the block and away from the Turbo's... If not, can you order that as I'm not sure what to get, and maybe re-evaluate the location of one or if needed, two oil coolers... If you feel comfortable with it, go ahead and order the oil cooler/s after you figure out the size we need and how to mount them...

I am trying to do whatever is needed to prevent any further damage to the turbo's...

I am supposing since you only mentioned the inlet size, that everything else is the same???

RE: The turbo's being modified... Well, everything is different, but the flange locations on the exhaust housing are in the same place. It's just bigger on the inside. The center sections will be the same ones we sent in. The compressor will be bigger, but we shouldn't have trouble fitting it once that cooler POS is out of the way. I have everything but the cooler we would use for the oil cooling system. Looks like I can save you $50 on the AMS 1000. It will certainly be better to plumb that up now while we can reach everything. I'll get to measuring this morning and will get the oil cooler plan in motion.

Corey


Looks like I'll have the turbo's today or tomorrow. AMS 1000 is ordered.
C


The 67/66's you have now, are rated at 930ish per turbo... Not that we'll have to push them that hard

O......... M........ G....... Wow, cool deal... Hopefully they'll withstand the heat being thrown at them...



Turbo's are here. I need to modify the compressor housings, and figured we should coat the exhaust housings this time.... Just got off the phone with Rob, he'll be by tomorrow to pick up the housings.

c




The diff bushing is 98% done. I'm waiting on the correct drill bit (should be here any minute) so I can make the internal dimension correct for the steel inner sleeve. Then we're good to go on the diff project. I'll know about the oil cooler I want in the morning. I'll have to order a couple fittings but that isn't a problem. I need to stock up on some stuff anyway. Boost controller is in the mail already...We're doing good.

Corey









Ok, the delrin bushings.....CAME OUT PERFECT! I know, I know, I told you it was almost done already. Well, it's done, and it's f***ing sweet. Nice and tight,

Corey

nice! cant wait to see some pics of the install of the controller for the turbos. I'll be getting bigger turbos soon enough and am seriously considering upgrading to the AMS1000. I'll let you be the guinea pig for testing

Hope everything is doing well down there!

I was looking at the AEM TRU-BOOST gauge.. but this AMS-1000 looks awesome... do you think it is worth it to go AMS.... the other seems to do what I was looking for.. electronically control the boost... but I have not really gone indepth in reviewing and comparing the two.... thoughts?

and what is up with this oil cooler?
It is in the way?... it is on the back of your block?
I think mine is near the radiator.

Am I reading it correctly that the turbos are giving off too much heat and are heat soaking the oil coolers?

I think we are going to have the same turbos Robert... time to compare notes..... and by that I mean... help me out with Coreys secrets. ahhaha

If i remember from the pictures, isnt your oil cooler right next to the transmission? We put mine right above the intercooler behind the front bumper. Havent had any issues with the turbos heating up and getting them messed up. hope its not something i might be dealing with in the future!

Depends on what you want to do. The AMS-1000 is the best boost controller out there (at least until the AMS-2000 comes out... soon).

If you are are really serious about competitive racing, then the AMS-1000 is the way to go. If you're going to be doing 95% street driving with occasional track says and money is an issue, then you can get a much less expensive boost controller that will do most of what you want.

Kyle, it's almost scary that all the stuff you're looking at is exactly what I was researching at about a month ago.
