Free mods turbo

All the time i've spent reading/trolling/wasting away my time reading about the free upgrades, i've NEVER seen a suggested turbo.

I know a turbo isn't free, but i would think that with all the money you save on the free mods, a turbo would be very possible. Plus i think it would be a good idea. I know with the free mods, the stock turbo can get out of its use, and the engine can get very hot, especially if you disable the waste gate.

theirs not really much you can do with the stock turbo as far as 'free mods' go.

You can drill out the wastegate hole so that it vents all 6 cylinders and you can actually control boost when your moving alot of fuel

You can also clean up the turbine casting a bit to help flow

same turbo on the 24v vp trucks other than the autos which used an HY35, basically the same thing with an even crappier (smaller) turbine housing

Their are HX35/40 hybrids available and they are somewhat reasonably priced compared to someof the other turbos on the market

really?:doh:

hell, we get the worst IP, and the worst turbo too?:banghead::S:
Gotta love emissions! 01-02 autos got the lovely hy35 9cm, the rest of them got the same ol hx35 12cm

Could you elaborate some on drilling out the wastegate hole and cleaning up the turbine casting?

The wastegate flapper is on the back side of the turbo. The exhaust is diveded totally into 2 banks, cylinders 123/456. the wastegate only vents the rear bank of cylinders, thus, with alot of fuel the first bank of cylinders can easily overspeed the turbo.

Basically what you want to accomplish is venting both banks. You can either ram a drill bit down the wastegate hole and drill through the divider, or i have also seen guys grind the divider a bit between the manifold and turbo.

As for cleaning up the casting, its just that. same as doing a port+polish on a head, you want to get rid of any casting flaws and polish that sucker up so their is the least ammount of restriction and turbulence

High Tech Turbo

You can buy the wheel and comp housing from them to 'DIY' or get one already done in various configs, but the center section does require some machining and the assembly should be balanced

oh so then it is slightly smaller than a 62. would a truck have any trouble spinning a 62 series turbo with just the free mods?
