Re: 3D Printing windsheild scuttle

They can 3D print big parts like that. I've ordered some prototype parts that are quite large. They're always a number of smaller parts that fit like a puzzle and then are are glued together to make one big part. Anyone willing to pay a couple of grand or more for a windshield scuttle? That's what ...

Re: Stock boost gauge more accurate than you think?

Mine was off a few PSI when I checked with an autometer gauge. Stock gauge was reading lower. I think its a car to car basis on whether the gauge is accurate or not.

Don't listen to anyone that tells you that you can use chassis/suspension parts off of a fwd VW on your rwd Merkur. ...

Re: symptoms of a blown turbo?

I see you have a dual piston bov, Im assuming from merkurdepot. If so, when was the last time you cleaned/lubricated it? They need regular maintenance to function properly. I had mine stick once or twice limiting me to 5-8 psi because it was leaking boost. I used dielectric grease as a lube for it.

Re: symptoms of a blown turbo?

He said he heard the buzzer once, Im guessing it overboosted, and cause a boost leak somewhere. Is the car intercooled? Check all your piping connections if so. If not, inspect the turbo to throttle body hose carefully. Its also possible that if your vacuum lines arent all secured that you may have ...

Re: Which turbo?

pretty sure people have hit those numbers with the stock turbo and cossie exhaust housing.

Im a big fan of my t3/4 50 trim .48 ar exhaust housing. spools nice and quick like stock. Not sure how much power I could make with it though.
