i can't get boost in first gear, it is a t/4 xs power turbo on a d16z6? any ideas?
Should have gone with a smaller turbo...I know people who are running a t3/t4 with a d16z6 and they don't seem to have trouble, but then again their engine isn't exactly stock. How much boost are you trying to push?
xs power t4 eh
let me guess. you were searching for turbos on ebay and you went with the biggest one for the least amount of money. alright. this is something everybody should know.
Ebay XS Power / SS AutoCrap turbos ARE GARBAGE. Their seals are practically blown out of the box, and I'll almost me damn certain that you did not prime the turbo before the initial startup after you installed the setup.
BUY A GOOD TURBO from cheapturbo.com or atpturbo.com or full-race.com and throw away that garbage dispenser.
I agree 100%
I just bought a 93 Prelude with a ebay XS Power turbo kit and I've had nothing but problems. My manifold cracked all to hell, and my turbo leaks oil (oil comes out my exhaust and goes all through intercooler pipes).
exactly. your seals are fuuuuuuucked.
this kid speaks the truth.
first of all, thank you for the info. and the turbo was on the car when i traded my screwed up hatch for it. and i am looking to get a new turbo, (a smaller one), because it doesn't do much for me unless i am on the highway and hallin ass. so if i get a different turbo, would i have to get a whole new set up? manifold intercooler piping,etc..? and the motor isn't completely stock, it has been totally rebuilt with vitara low compression pistons, but with stock rods and crankshaft. oh yeah, i am only running 8 psi.
sorry, just wanted to add that i also have oil all over in my intercooler piping!!!!!!!
you won't need a new manifold as long as you buy a turbo that has the same T3 bolt pattern, which is very widely used. you may need to modify the piping SLIGHTLY but not much at all. you've got oil in your intercooler piping most likely because your turbo is leaking oil (blown seals).
here ya go: quick spooler right here for ya. brand new. Garrett T3/TO4E 50 trim w/ .48
If you look at the maps I would suggest the T3/T04E 57 trim over the 50 trim due to the better resistance to surging. I'm using the 57 trim on a D16 and I have no problem spooling in first. You have to have all the parts work together. Make sure you have at least 2.5 piping for everything. Mine builds boost at 2K with 2.5 piping and I'm upgrading to 3" with the new motor that is going in.
I have a t3/t04e 57 trim on my d16z6 and spool up isn't a problem! If you want to go even bigger go with a BB t3 60-1, which is still an over kill. T3/T04e is probably your best bet!
Try stayin away from t4 turbines!
