If any one has any questions that they can't seem to answer, feel free to drop me a note at mntepnr@sympatico.ca. I done the conversion last fall and all has been great for about a year now. Once you get boost you will never go back!!!

I would suggest even less boost. 6 to 7psi at most. Lenthen the wastegate arm a little bit so it opens sooner. Very hard to do properly, but goodluck.

Well I have read and read, and I'm still scared but I'm doing the turbo conversion in 4 days now.
Is there any more little pointers or anything any one wants to share???
Wish me luck......I'm going in.
P.S How the hell do you get at that knock sens?

You are crazy to run 17 psi. Did you change internals and head?

Ah, I run 10-15psi regularly, and have had no issues with my turbo'd N/T. The motor was rebuilt 130000Km's ago with N/T pistons. I put new oil pump gears, rebuilt the tranny, and removed my b-shafts before the conversion, and have 30000km's on conversion with no problems and compression above 195psi dry still.

Are you guys monitoring knock?
Maybe the knock sensor / timing retard is saving your motors for the time being...

No I do not have an SAFC to monitor knock, yet, just the indicator light, and it doesn't stay on, and the plugs have been coming out brown. I have also rewired my fuel pump, and pulled timing back 2 degree's.
