Turbo conversions, Rally preparation and service stop work. And Motorcycle engine tuning 2 and 4 stroke. More engine work to be fair, but im a dab hand at chassis's too.
Been on the dole fer 16 months now, Got made redundant, then lost my license a few weeks later (driving a mates car without insurance cos he was drunk) Losing that is a real set back cos im struggling to get in anywhere! Even jobs I dont need a license for!!
#1 - I feel for you bud, its amazing how everything you've worked for can go wrong so quickly, it seems a waste to the country/ society that someone such as yourself with your skills and experience is on the dole, i hope you find something soon, I see seemingly incompetent people (from my perspective, anyway) in good, secure, well paid jobs and i often wonder how they got them - maybe its true what they say - its who you know not what you know, or the ones who are most "economical with the truth" on their CV gets the interview, and the best BSer, gets the job.
Ive dabbled a bit in motorsport, and am wondering if you could help me with my little project -
I think i have pushed the little GT20 turbo about as far as it can go - i have a fully adjustable boost controller and i seem to have reached a "plateo" where i am increasing the boost but not getting any more power gains, the power drops off at the "top end" - i would like to extend it its a low budjet project and i want to retain the stock injectors, exhaust manifold (i have a second one, with turbo/ actuator etc- which i plan to ceramic coar and/or heatwrap, i have a 8mm ss EGR blanking plate (which i plan to fit the EGT sensor to) and an EGT gauge). With keeping the stock manifold i would probably be stuck with the stock turbine, (its a fixed vane) but would like to fit a larger compressor wheel & housing, but here is the thing- i don't want to significantly increase lag / raise the boost threshhold so im looking for a compressor(+ housing) that will icrease the gas-flow/ top end power without doing that - any comments appriciated (i can move this (#2)to my build thread)
