As my car will be going off the road at the end of this month to shelter her away from the sh1t weather i thought id treat her to a nice new T04z when she comes back out around March or so.

The T78 that on just now is chromed (see below)

and i was wondering if it would be possible (and should I) to chrome the new turbo and who could do it?

cheers,
Andy.

T78 shouldnt be laggy on the quarter? If you launch right its not the issue, and it shouldnt be an issue on gearchange either?

T4Z will be loads nicer allround tho.

Anyhow, chrome compressor housing, no problem really, any place that can chrome any other bits.
Take the compressor housing off yourself, few bolts, 10mins work.

Are you still only revving to 6.5k?

What times are you doing?

Taking it to ~ 7-7.5k

You dont want to know my times!:eek:
Best so far is a high 12, been either bogging down on the start or missing 3rd. :mad:
Need to get a lot more practice in though.

Does anyone know what times i should roughly be running with ~650fwhp?

I think that with your build taking it to 8.5 on the drag strip now and again wouldnt blow the motor. That extra .5 revs when changing up might make a real difference.

I said it to Marc about setting your rev limit too low. Half the fun is revving the RB up.

What ECU do you run and have you had it mapped and rolling roaded...?

Its an Essential piggy back ECU just now but will be a Apexi as soon as i decide whether to buy Asims Pro or whether to get the Djetro:confused:

Dont want to put too much load on it until its properly set up but it would be nice to see it running some nice times.

i'm doing roughly mid 11's on twin 2510's (i do sprints over here, and they say .5 diff between that and 1/4 mile) so you should be doing a lot better than high 12's! Mine revs to 8000rpm.

12.6 on std turbos with bad stock clutch and worn tires at the time.
Now have nice twin plate with stickier rubber, dying to see time improv.
Yes, you should have a better time than that with a T78, chromed or not.

Lovely engine bay BTW.

With that sort of power, you should be getting close to the 10s!

I was getting 11.4s with GT-SS and 460 ATH with mine and that was only with high 1.6 60 fts...

T04Z would be nice though and dead easy to chrome...

Didn't **** run a 10.6 in his gold T78 R32 ?

I know it was / is VERY stripped out, but shows what can be done.

Rocket was running a T78 I believe as well ... and was running low 10's.

I don't the spec of the car in question here, but it shows the potential....
