Well, I had to service the car since it had been sitting for so long, and I figure since I'm replacing the coolant I may as well pull out the turbo and get it ceramic coated since I can't install the lower heat shield.. and.. well, if it's apart why not try a new CHRA?

 

Mamba turbos (apparently the guy from Kando/Kinugawa) 11 blade billet GTX wheel + a 9 blade turbine.

 

I'll keep you all posted, I'll likely have it dyno tuned after I get it back together, rego'd, and buy some new tyres.

 

(Also thanks to Dale at Ceramic Coat Australia, he did a great job and even re-tapped the O2 sensor bung hole for me!)

Hey doom was that coating pricey? I’ve had mine priced and it was way too expensive.

But I’m at the point where I need to find a way to cool down my temps even more. So I’m thinking of biting the bullet

It was pretty damn cheap, only cost about $160 to get the turbine housing + the dump pipe cleaned, prepped, and coated.

 

I think the housing by itself was about $120? But they charge by the metre for things that are basically straight pipes so it was only $40 or so for the dump pipe.

I header wrapped and exhaust painted my front pipe to keep the heat out of the oil pan but I kind of regret not making the effort to take it to get coated when I had it out of the car cause it's so cheap!

Kinugawa evo 3 16g. Never really had it tuned (165kw atw at about 5500 rpm / 12psi at run-in, about 350nm of torque). Will probably get better numbers with the new turbo but really I'm more interested in spool characteristics.

I'm slack, I'm re-painting the boot lid and I'm also trying to finish a build on a "vintage" motorcycle, I'll get it done eventually haha..
