Doesn’t seem to be many boosted board members with Gti’s/Gt’s, especially from the US or Canada, was wondering how many there really is out there !?

Would be nice if everyone with boost could let us know a few bits of info about their cars, I am especially interested to find out how the T28’s compare to T25’s or equivalent. I Think this has potential to be a good thread as we can see what works and what doesn’t so please post away !!

let us know:

What engine management are you running ?
What’s done to your engine ?
How much boost ?
How many horses you got at the wheels ?
What octane fuel ?
Which turbo/supercharger you using ?
If Turbo what manifold are you using ?
What RPM do you start pulling boost ?
And anything else you think might be worth sharing !?

Will get the ball rolling with mine:

EMS = DASTECH UNI-CHIP (piggy back system)
Engine = Stock
Boost = 10 Psi
WHP = 164
Fuel = 98 Ron
Charger = Rotrex Supercharger SP30-74
On Boost = By 2000rpm but as the boost delivery is linear it’s very low at that RPM

Would also be great to see some dyno sheets for Turbine Tech, SSGti.com and other off the shelf systems !!!

Here's my Turbine Tech setup...
EMS = Link A/F correction, Manual Distributer retardation
Engine = Stock
Boost = 7 Psi
WHP = Unknown
Fuel = 98 Ron
Charger = TD04H
On Boost = Spooling at around 2.5-3000rpm
Manifold = Turbine Tech Non-Equal length runner style
Anything else = Cultus inlet, air filter infront wheel arch, turbine tech intercooler

I think thats it just for now.

That is Cause only Turbo cars in the US/Canada were G10T Sprints. Swifts never came here with Turbo's

Phil,

Hope you don’t mind me summarising your info :oops:

EMS = Link A/F correction
Engine = Stock
Boost = 7 Psi
WHP = Unknown
Fuel = 98 Ron
Charger = TD04H
On Boost = Spooling at 3000rpm
Manifold = Turbine Tech (which one !?)
Anything else = Cultus inlet

Don’t want this one to turn into a list of modifications as I am sure most people with boost could fill a couple of sides of A4 :twisted:

As for making it go faster a trip to the rolling road to get the car mapped or at least the timing adjusted will make a huge difference. I am amazed that you have not been to get the car set up properly the difference will be more than worth the money !

A Ron is unit of measurement, so 98ron in the UK would be 98ron in the US, just like 1Mph is 1Mph no matter where about’s on the planet you happen to be !?

Kento,

Same everywhere in the world all boosted swifts are aftermarket conversions there are probably only 5 Gti’s in the UK with boost. This is why i am currious to compare results !

Thanks

The car is no longer for sale and i don't think i'm ever going to sell it now. Its in the process of getting a complete new engine rebuild. I'm wanting to hit 12's on the track when i get finished.

this is my homemade setup. might be the worst of the lot, but i think the cheapest :-P
costed me just over$2000 TT, about $300 us includes doing over the exhaust to 2 1/4 "
EMS= stock
engine=stock
boost= 7-9 psi
WHP= unknown
fuel= local premium, unproven 95 RON
charger=toyota ct-9
on boost= about 2000-2200 RPM
manifold=homemade logstyle :cry:
anything else= 2 stage homemade boost controller, stage 2 chip, evo 7 recirculator, polyurethane packed mounts, coolant temp mod with TPS switch to activate it at about 60-75% throttle, ACT clutchplate, custom short shifter
i may have forgotten other small DIY mods. the engine has been runnung well for the past 18 mts with no probs, until my MAF got screwed.


plans for the next few months

megasquirt EFI on its way
custom runnerstyle turbomanifold
turbo off a subaru WRX sti
custom downpipe
60mm TB with cultus manifold, will later be replaced with ITB from a 4AGE 20V with its injectors
larger fuel pump n adjustable FPR
custom water/alcohol injection, pump is on its way
ACT heavyduty pressure plate

after that , or when the engine blows( knock on wood) will put in forged pistons from the webstore, and start saving for a LSD unit.

interested on hearing about other setups

No problem, you can summarise as much as you want.

As for tuning on a rolling road, there would be no real improvement as my car is at the moment by cause my car is street tuned to the exact a/f ratio I want and is monitored live constantly.
As for timing I am awaiting a MSD BTM, as my base timing is retarded to 2 degrees, so with out risking detenation there would be no increase in performance without risk of damage. When the MSD BTM comes I am installing a knock link which then I can advance timing back to stock and use the BTM to retard per PSI and monitor knock.
Street tuning is much more 'real world' than on a dyno (without slagging a dyno off, because yes they are good tuning tools). Some good tuners always recommend after tuning on a dyno to go out and tune on the road, because the dyno can produce different amounts of load on the engine which spools the turbo up different. And yes I will eventually go to a dyno when it's worth my while.

As for the RON measurement, USA do not use RON and their fuel quality is also different, so when someone from USA quotes a octane it is different to ours. e.g. 98RON = 95PON

EDIT: Forgot to add that my manifold is non-equal lenth runner style.

This is my set up
Even though its not running now $%^#@&*

EMS = Turbo Link spark/ fuel/ boost correction. +12 Base timing retards as required to about -15deg at 12 PSI
extra injector for fuel - Stock fuel pump and rail - pressure is steady!
Engine = Stock + 1999 16VSOHC pistons / lower compression
Boost = 7-14 Psi
WHP = 125- >??Unknown Gtech run coming - when its running%#@
Fuel = 91 octane
Charger = Garrett BBGT/T25
On Boost = starts at about 2000/ 5 PSI about at 3000rpm
Manifold = Cast AVO/ SSGTI not equal - but long runners
Anything else = Apex springs and 25 mm swaybars

I was getting 45-47 MPG on high last trip 70mph

My turn!

Ok ok, first a disclaimer... although I have a turbo swift... it' rarely runs.
(do a search on my posts, you'll see :( )
It's haunted...
so maybe you should avoid this set-up... I dunno :P

EMS = Split Second fuel controller, Manual Distributer retardation.
Engine= stock stock stock...
Injectors = see "engine"
Boost = 6(ish) Psi
WHP = this thing hardly runs enough for me to drive it on the street, let alone to a dyno.... Good estimate would be in the 150-160 area (i HOPE)
Fuel = North American 92 Octane (i don't understand the whole RON/PON deal)
Charger = T20/25 hybrid
On Boost = Zero Comes up at about 2000rpm, hits peak at 3000rpm
Manifold = Turbine Tech Econoline special... 4 ports and a spot for a turbo at the bottom....simple.. elegant...works!
Intercooler (added this) = Turbine Tech Custom... fills the whole front mouth and then some.
Else = Walboro Pump, Fuel Pressure Regulator, Hydrolic lines for the remote oil filter that cause SOOO many problems. Ceramic Coated Piping.
and an Airfilter that lives in the Front wheel well!

The car is SUPER fun when it runs... pure driving bliss.
Unfortunetly this is rare... it's been very problematic, and i'm hoping to just make it more reliable then fast in the coming months/years.
It's had some close calls, and one blown turbo already.
But all in all i wouldn't trade it for the world.... which may explain the empty wallet i'm riding right now :(

Although not strictly on-topic, I'm going to add my G16B SOHC turbocharged Vitara.

What engine management are you running ?
Custom Megasquirt board with Megasquirt'n'spark-extra firmware.
MSD 6A CDI ignition.

What’s done to your engine ?
Combustion chambers reshaped, ports cleaned up. Pistons reshaped in a lathe. 8.5:1 compression or thereabouts. Head studs.

How much boost ?
As much as I want, 18psi is good.

How many horses you got at the wheels ?
No idea, but I'm probably making close to 200hp at the crank on full boost.

What octane fuel ?
98RON

Which turbo/supercharger you using ?
Garrett VNT25 off a Shelby turbo IV
Using a wastegate off an Audi 5000 turbo to vent off in the top range when the vanes don't flow enough to keep the boost down.

If Turbo what manifold are you using ?
Home made mild steel equal length header.

What RPM do you start pulling boost ?
2000rpm

And anything else you think might be worth sharing !?
It's considerably faster than most off road trucks in Iceland. I haven't tested it on the track in current trim but it should do low to mid 15's on the 35" tall off road tires (which weigh 37kg each if I recall correctly). Definitely has the potential for 14's if put on some smaller tires. Has launch control and flat shift triggered by a clutch switch, makes the full throttle upshifts so much smoother. I only rev the engine to 6000rpm.
2.5" muffled exhaust, sounds quite good. Not too loud.

piston have been plane to lower the compression
mopar 510cc injector , Supra fuel pump ( low duty cycle )
double pressure plate
intercooler

boost up to 16 psi

dyno tune have done 213 WHP and 200 WTQ at 15 psi
With a AFR of 11.5/1,

with 94 octane fuel, don t know how many PON it make

homemade manifold with a garreth T3 turbo with D.E.I. exhaust wrapping

boost start to 2250 and max boost to 3750

Gauges: wideband AFR , Msd Knock alert , oil pressure , volt

on SDS LCD screen : Boost , RPM, water température , AIR temp.
Duty cycle, timing , Throttle position

Blitz electronique dual solenoid boost controller (4 stage)
peak hold function , warning and limiter prevent over boosting


I got the dyno sheet but I don t know how to post it .
if someone want, I can send it on a email and you post it

Have seen this topic lately and as my car is running on boost (finally after running in)

well to get to the point:

What engine management are you running ?
---------------------------------------------------
Stock ECU With apexi safc in combination with an JR FMU.

What’s done to your engine ?
----------------------------------
Rebuild engine, low compression pisons ( rematched on a lathe. ) Ported head and combustionchambers, complete custom exhaust header and system ( specially for the supercharger. ) Offcourse the eaton M45 bolted in place on a custom billet alu struth. custom belt tensioner. Generator put in front of the engine on a custom made brace. Custom made blowoff-valve specially made for the ECG-EBL system. Custom made intercooler piping. Unnown brand of intercooler.
To make some room under the bonnet, the battery is placed in the trunk.
Custom made billet/nylon solid motormounts.

How much boost:
--------------------
Still on 4 psi Max on safety reasons ( BTM not working at the moment. )

WHP:
--------------------
Don't know, "Randy regel die testbank nou eens...." ( sorry a little dutch..)

Fuel:
--------------------
V-power Shell ( ron 97 )

Charger:
--------------------
Eaton M45 Supercharger

On boost:
--------------------
1 psi at 1000 rpm 4 psi availabe at 1800 rpm. ( more possible by pushing a few buttons inside the vehicle. ) up to 16 psi.

Manifold:
--------------------
Custom MP-R header ( lager displacement header then stock.)

Other:
--------------------
A lot! A few of them: ECG-Electronic Boost Limiter. Made for to replace the stock boost limiter of the eaton supercharger, only now, fully electronic, and adjustable. A cheap blow-off valve :lol: A vortech/MSD BTM and tachadapter.

Hopfully soon a split second......

Ohhh i haven't been in here for a while so here goes
my car is under stage two which involves remaking the exhaust manifold (Sorry Jarda) and bolting up a T28.

What engine management are you running ? - Microtech LT-8
What’s done to your engine ? - Vitara pistons.
How much boost ? - 9psi (low) 19psi (High)
How many horses you got at the wheels ? - Not tested needs tuning
What octane fuel ? - 90 :puker:
Which turbo/supercharger you using ? - turbo Garrett T28
If Turbo what manifold are you using ? - custom
What RPM do you start pulling boost ? - 3600RPM still needs tuning
And anything else you think might be worth sharing ! Water injection and oil cooler fitted

The cars timing figures will have to be sorted as the first figures that i have were low and now with this larger turbo i will have to advance the timing under no boost to aid with fuel economy and response.

i will probably start to pull timing at about 5psi probably 3/4 degree per pound.
I will also have to adjust the point at which the water injection comes in.
I will try and keep you guys posted on the new developments

for any quick question PM me or email me

Well, this project is 9 months in the making, and i'm happy to say i've got it running very good. Bare with me, i'll try to cover the details of my setup.


What engine management are you running ? - For fuel control, I'm using Apexi S-AFC II. For timing, I'm using a Vortech (MSD) BTM. Retarding .4 deg/lb boost.
What’s done to your engine ? Vitara pistons, 3Tech reground cams 210(duration at .050")/.340" lift profile, p+p head w/ 3 angle valve job, 1pc ss exhaust valves, and all bottom end components + fly wheel are balanced/blueprinted. Udp from Adam, and filter relocation kit. Mitsu 3000GT VR4 Injectors (370cc), Turbinetech fuel rail, rrfpr 1:1, refilled motor mounts (Hard! ... Loud!). Added today was a 2.25 mandrel bent exhaust w/ magnaflow muffler.. one of the most beautiful exhaust tones i've ever heard.
How many horses you got at the wheels ? 201.9
What octane fuel ? US 91octane + booster
Which turbo/supercharger you using ? MHI TD04 14t - Intercooled by a Turbine Tech FMIC.
What manifold are you using ? Turbine Tech Hybrid
What RPM do you start pulling boost ? 2300rpm 10psi around 3300.
And anything else you think might be worth sharing !? Upgraded to 10psi, then drove it 1900 miles to put it in storage while i move..

Got you beat. I have the most homemade system here :) (Cost with the car + turbo, mods etc is $1400).

EMS = stock
Engine= stock
Injectors = stock
Boost = ?? (LOTS!)
WHP = ?? But I easily crushed a MR2 Turbo over and over...
Fuel = 94 Octane
Charger = CT10
On Boost = very very early, around 1500-1900 RPMs?
Manifold = homemade by nososwiftgti
Anything else = welded the wastegate shut (so LOTTA boost). Stripped!

Runs good, very strong, has a few oil leaks from oil inlet, no worries whatsoever.

I did it mainly because everyone said you need engine management, fuel mods, this that and the other. I've put about 5K of really ABUSIVE driving on it and it's still good. (I pulled the turbo for the winter to fix some of the little oil leaks etc).

When will it blow?????? I thought about selling it many times, but why? For the price it's easily the most fun car I have owned.

(My other car is a 94 RX7 TT)

Here's my low budged SJ4.13 4X4 turbo set-up except for the ECU system.

What engine management we are you running is the? Adaptronic 420

what’s done to your engine? We run a standard G13B engine, we used a bubble head gasket to lower the CR to 8,5:1. no mods what so even to the engine.

How much boost? 15psi@3600 until the red line

How many horses you got at the wheels? 152hpatw @ 12 SPI from 5100Rpm until the red line and 210Nm @ 4200Rpm.

What octane fuel? 98 Bp Ultimate or SHELL V power when we run @ 15 PSI and RON 95 @ 9 PSI boost for normal use.

Which turbo/supercharger you using? TD04H-13C-6CM2 360 CFM @ 15 PSI.

If Turbo what manifold are you using? Home made exhaust manifold with 3in dump pipe.

What RPM do you start pulling boost? 2000 RPM 3 PSI, full boost @ 3600.

And anything else you think might be worth sharing!? Closed loop boost control done by the Adaptronic 420 working with a BOSCH 3/2 boost control valve.

And the rest!
Turbo Accessories
TD04H-13C-6CM2 360
Front Mount Intercooler AUDI A6 2.5 TDI
BOSCH 3/2 Volkswagen TDI boost control valve
K&N air Filter

Fuel System:
700hp Bosch Fuel Pump.
FORD ESCORT COSWORTH STD BLUE INJECTORS

For the rest:
At the moment we are running 15 PSI for sprinting. For normal use we adjusted the Adaptronic waste gate controller to 9 PSI.
We had some problem with the clutch on the Dyno due to a coolant leak otherwise we were able to puss up the boost I bit further on the Dyno.

The total cost for this project for the turbo set-up was 400 Euro for the engine.
The Adaptronic 420 and all that goes with are like MAP and air temp sensor was about 900 Euros.

It really fun to drive and even with 9 PSI you can out run most GTI and Honda stuff.
Fastest G tech time @ 9 PSI was 6.2 seconds zero to 60 miles. Nod bad for a off road car.
