vlwagz VLT WAGON
this is my new setup it started of N/A then i put a sc14 supercharger on it i made all the brackets and everything my self in the shed it took me 3 months. I left it like that for about 6-7 months but it was to unreliable and wasnt the most attractive engine bay so i bought a turbo conversion and a series 2 motor i took the old motor out and a mate painted the bay for me then i dropped it off at my mech and had him fit everything for me. its just a standard turbo setup with a gktech front mount its a standard series 2 motor. my waste gate isnt shutting all the way at the moment so im only getting 4psi till i get a new actuator which should be in the next week or so but it made 115rwkw on high tech dyno. Cant wait to get the new actuator though.

cheers let me know what you guys think.

looks good dude! how does it go compared to your supercharged setup?

how do you go closing the bonnet with the pod up so high? :p

vlwagz 20-11-07 12:54

its alot smoother to drive than my supercharger but power wise im not sure yet but i think this setup is quicker but it is only running 4psi so the 10psi i plan on running should be alot better.

yeah the bonnet shuts fine but i want to get a polished pipe made up to sit it lower.

_Calturb 20-11-07 13:34

Thats awesome man, how much power were you making with the SC setup and what did you do with it?
Engine bay looks real neat, new washer bottles would finish it off nice!

vlwagz 20-11-07 13:39

i sold the supercharger setup to a mate. im not sure about the power with the supercharger setup but it was only running 4psi aswell.
yeah washer bottle and a polished intake pipe and afm in the piping should be happening soon. but i want to get the rear bodykit soon ive been meaning to do that for ages.

RB JET 20-11-07 16:09
