yeah, I've given up on the 4288 for a secondary. With us moving in 6 weeks I don't wanna re-invent my secondary charger system and in light of no favorable turbines for it, it would take a pretty extensive re-work and R&D time to get it right. So my plan is to leave the 35 on top with it's modified turbine, and an unmolested BHTB3 on bottom (or side LOL). This way when I pass through Vancouver, I can dyno a 160 pumped, budget twinned truck to see just what the combo is capable of. I'm pretty maxed out everywhere that most guys would do with a budget in mind, so this test should be the end-all for the small pump, easy twin applications. So let's hear some horsepower guesses (always a fun Q) for #2 only, and then squirted with methanol. I'm hoping to crack 500, and would be happy with anything above or around that for now. Once we're settled, the march will continue.
oh, and BTW.....back to the original post, a thin bead of high temp silicone sealed up the compressor fine....but without caging the retaining ring with machine screws, the tendancy for it to pop is still there. I check it now and then and it does move around some with the high pressures.
