I am glad I pushed you. Haha. But thanks in return for finding a good alternative that will cost less because the cost of redoing the turbo and a tune is full price. Its not a retune when you upgrade the turbo. You pay for a new license.Storm Tropper,
Absolutely, no replacement for AWD. The EVO sounds like fun, I'm getting ready to pull mine out of storage. Might drop it off with AMS and have my Cosworth cams installed but other than that gonna be super busy getting the Juke running before the end of the year. Turbo should work out well, I don't have crazy goals. If I can hit maybe 280-290 w.h.p. on the CVT I'd be happy. Highest I've seen on the stock frame turbo for a CVT is around 255 whp.
Yeah, turbo should be a fun little project. Thanks to MacGyver for pushing me to try the Turbobay w/52mm wheel, but this is $500 vs. spending nearly $1000. I like running stock frame turbo's, keeps the engine compartment from looking like a science project. The CVT can't handle much more than a 16g sized turbo anyway, so for us CVT owners this might be the simplest solution. Wish Mamba would just sell the dang turbo like this from the get go, they have all the parts already. Might be worth asking them to reconfigure the turbo this way.
They don't right now but that might change. You could always buy the turbobay version which is pretty much what I’m building. I think they run $1,000 to $1200. They clip the turbine wheel so it’ll spool a bit slower then mine. I was looking at some guy who ran a 23t compressor and a TD04hl 9 blade turbine and put down like 360 whp on a Ford Fiesta 1.6l. I prefer bolt on turbos for the OEM fitment.So does Mamba make the Full blown better setup that you can just buy? I would rather keep my old mamba as a backup. Its not too hard to unbolt rebolt.
Probably could vent it if I ran the synapse diverter. Little bit loud for my taste so I’ll be recircing it. I like the stock fitment of all the hoses and all that stuff plus it causes fewer drive ability issues.Why not delete the return side of the by pass valve and vent to atmosphere
Sounds very interesting. I'd say start a thread on it then I'll definitely have questions.What if I show you my secret setup that I never share with forum, it's been on for over 1 year and still works great not to mention you can tune sound and it's all off the shelf turbosmart stuff!
