Glad you have recovered from the vid!well i recovered from covid somewhat and got this thing mostly running again. some thoughts after my first test drive:
Oil pressure dropped a LOT after adding the turbo. should I be running a restrictor on a journal bearing turbo? or reroute the oil system? the way it is now, I teed the turbo oil feed off of the oil pressure sender port. I can see why the oil takes the path of lease resistance so should I separate the two or run a restrictor in the turbo feed line?
EGT's are high, like 700-800 on the flat highway at 55mph and jumping to 900-1000 with just slight throttle input. I used 2.5" tubing for the first half of the exhaust, i think i will redo it with 3" and use a less restrictive flange at the back of the turbo.
I think my exhaust V1.0 is way too restrictive (at least i hope that's what it is)
this is the turbo i have for reference again, It was suggested to me in the G-turbo alternative thread. I didnt think it was too small? I mean people put disco potato T28's on 1HZ's. https://shop.mambatek.com/TOYOTA-13...46-65-Turbocharger-001-0923.htm?categoryId=-1
I have a 7lb spring in the wastegate and saw about 6.5PSI boost during my first test drive. would increasing the boost lower egt??
