The question will it be coming home with me? I am headed to the Bay to pick up my latest Craigslist find, he has a job, intelligent, has a family. He has never ran the turbo but he worked on the car it was on, was rebuilt (old VW talk). I will post pictures tonight.

What a day full of emotions, I hate to wait. Call I will be at you house in an hour not a week..... Mad This thing makes up for the last couple of bad buys. This same system is for sale on Las Vegas Craigslist $1500.00 no this was not it. And no I am not telling. Its a pretty big Dellorto 45??? RaJay turbo it was just rebuilt prior to changing back to carbs. Nice and tight. RayJays have Carbon seals so you can blow through, or draw through. The header is in the garage I will clean and mount it tomorrow. It has a waste gate attached. All I need is a down pipe I know where to borrow one.

And I do believe I may be able to pull the whole thing in one shot. Rolling Eyes No disassembling







I will do better tomorrow



My wife was not to happy, when she saw Chris and I doing cart wheels she simmered down some. I will take her dancing Friday. Even that is not punishment when they are all Zumba instructor. cheers Very Happy

After 39 pages on the shop talk forums about turbos.. I will be building a blow thru not a draw thru.. and yes.. you NEED a carbon seal for the draw thru!

Sweet set up! Hope the price was right.. wait a minute, who an I talking to.. Dave.. of course you got a deal.. buy low and sell for 3 times high...LOL lol!

That looks pretty sweet Dave. How much HP can you expect to gain?

PostSubject: expect   Thu Mar 03, 2011 12:51 pm

I expect nothing, that way I am never disappointed. Plus I am not a numbers guy, I cannot remember what I paid for my 914 Turbo set-up. That was 6 months ago. Selective amnesia.

My son will not be controlling the boost so we will be running a low number say 7 1/2. I am sure it will spoil you pants. Without boost it was scary with should be nuts. As a gag gift for my birthday I got a package of Depends so I will put them in the car for passenger use bounce

Eric says I may have some issues with this setup, it has a tendency to load up idling I have tons of carbs to experiment with. So if it not spot on I can change it to a blow through.
