Doc, do you think any actuator for a Garrett T25 would fit? or are they specifically rated for certain boost pressures?

oo- you,d best ask one of the "nutzers"- they are better clued up on their turbo,s- but i "think" they are adjustable (and sticky)

Paul, sorry I didn't say cheerio but I didn't notice you had left :cry: We'll get more time for a blether next time. And yes, Andy and Stevie are well worth knowing for their advice and expertise-cheers :lol: . I can feel a rather large spending spree coming on (next year). I now want roll bars, bigger wheels, a super duper turbo pooper scooper thingy and stuff :lol: You guys are a bad influence you know. It's a hard choice between diamonds and car gizmo's

Starting with what you have, once fitted with FI (either turbo or S/C) you will have one megga car and once driven you won't want to go back.
Once the dark side calls you must obey :twisted:
Lorraine, I saw it in your eyes, it's too late for you already, you will answer the call :P

If I could start again I would use 1.8 sport as a basis.

Ca canny lass :wink:

Rough, that's me :wink: I wouldn't complain about getting a stone for £2000 but it looks like the Pram is going to win this time round. I can feel some overtime coming on :roll: fingers crossed anyway otherwise this could be a long term project

Well home now 386 miles later and a lot happier than this morning when I left the house at 7:00. Didn't think I was coming last night after shredding my newly fitted supercharger belt last night at about 8:00, always keep a spare :D
Great to finally meet everyone and thanks from Wes and myself for making two south of Scotland members most welcome.
Special thanks to Andy (rockdoc) for organising the day and helping adjust my supercharger belt today and all of his great advice in the last couple of weeks on various mods that I have done, or struggled to do.
P.S car drove a lot better on the way down so belt must have been slipping again on the way up but not anymore 9 psi + where did the extra psi come from, I don't know or care just glad it is there.
Hope to see you all again soon.

Paul, you say the nicest things :wink: All of a sudden, the dark side seems a nice place to got to and Clare said she would start with a 2lt sport and work up but I ain't getting rid of Elsie that quickly, there is still only 3976 miles on the clock and she is 2 years old :cry:

L111TCH, thanks for meeting up and showing us how to get there and back through Aberdeen, sure I would have got lost.
Great day, great banter and a wonderful drive if a bit foggy from Aberdeen to Arbroath.

The difference between Turbocharging and Supercharging ( For the Pram)

Both systems force air into the engine by squashing the oxygen before it mixes with the fuel. In a Turbo, the compressor is driven by waste exhaust gas, so it's efficient, but prone to lag. ( Lag- The time between putting your foot down and the car accelerating)

A Supercharger is driven directly by the engine for better responses, but at the expense of economy.( Supercharger belt driven by engine, and no lag)

So buy a Supercharger Lorraine :lol: :lol:

Ah, I see now, thanks Stevie. As for paying for it, I'm not sure what the going rate is on the "shore". It might take some time to get enough :?
