Moved to the darkside! or is it the lightside? New to turbos
Been a blower guy all my mustang life, just bought a new car with a turbo and just have some quick questions
brief run down:
Boss Block 347
Vic Jr style Intake with 6061.com Elbow
Stage 3 ported Trick Flow Heads
ARP Head Studs
1.6 Roller Rockers
Custom Turbo Cam 565/565 Lift 244 Dur.
2-255 intank pump
New MSD 6AL
Built AOD with Lentech Valve Body
Eboost street boost controller
PLX wide Band
Turbonetics T76 with an F1-68 turbine wheel. ball bearing .96 A/R turbine housing
Right now the car starts up great, no smoke at all, if you give it gas(turbo spins up it starts smoking out the tailpipes) I believe this to be a sympton of a bad seal in the turbo. Motor seems strong, oil pressure, no ticking/knocking. I plan on taking it off and sending it off to be gone through. What would be a FOR SURE way an amatuer like myself could tell it was a seal, not cracking open the turbo could tell? Just take it off and fire up the car with it off and see if it smokes?
Also with the above specs how much power can this turbo make to the wheels realistically on a hyradlic roller, street mannered setup.
93 Cobra #738 Black/Grey BOSS 347(352ci), PT7675CEA, FB AOD, F.A.S.T, #160, E85/70
Built @ Kurgan Motorsports. 820rwhp @ 22 psi.
