well ive changed lots of stuff to reach 435hp. Changed the turbos, new exhaust (as you can see in the pics), My friend tuned the ECU (not an electrical guru so i dunno how he did it, but i saw it he did it with the dyno and a computer). overall the turbos spools up fast and the sound is orgasmical 🙂

How do you change the turbo in a Naturally Aspirated engine? Also, ecu mapping? Lol

Could you take a photo of the engine? I would like to see the setup to arrange everything, like where the turbo is, where is the intercooler and such?

 

Edit: and a 2007 car is already 12 years old. That's quite some age now.

435 hp out of a that V6 isnt that much tbh, ive seen GTIs with 400hp out of 2.0l four bangers.

But i'd like to see that engine bay as well, Im curious how they packed it in there, I know these engines are quite packed in there.

I'm sure you could make more but 400 is plenty on the road if we're being realistic.

@Milli Cars from the past 25 years seem to be hanging around longer than cars from the previous 25 years, there seems to be more longevity in cars from the late 90s-00s. I still see 20-year-old 206s on a daily basis... none as pretty as mine was mind you 😉

The biggest concern is the fact that the car is highly modified. And usualy, highly modified cars when get sold, is nothing but a bucket of problems.

It is not everyday that you see a car from 1957 in the streets, i suppose. Plus, i believe these were really popular back then, no?

 

The Morris Minor is consider THE 50's car of Britain, everyone over a certain age seems to have had one of have good memory's of one. 🙂 

I used it every opportunity I could last summer, nipping to the ships? Excuse to drive. Local car show? Excuse for a drive

With Nick1999's A6, I don't doubt its highly modded and i bet its a rocket on the roads!

Where I am chipping and modding anything German is all the rage. Silly power can be gained from just plugging in a laptop, let alone throwing parts at it.  Ages doesn't play much of a part in it either...One friend is running a highly modded B7 RS4 with no problems,  yet another has a Mk1 Fabia VRS and yet its problem after problem.

Probably because RS4 has a V8 which is durable, four bangers arent as reliable especially when you start extracting crazy powers from them, pretty much only reason im keeping my Golf on stock power.

Seems like I go through cars a lot these days lol. I no longer have the Mustang as I was having problems with things like the A/C, radiator hoses and a lot of other things that were getting annoying. So I decided it was time for something a little more practical. I searched for a long time before I found this mint Mk7 Golf GTI. 16k miles and all stock.

Meanwhile in 86 news, I got my new Corbeau seat installed, then we had a long spell of rain here in Southern California for 2 months that meant it had to stay parked. Then when I went to start it it had a fuel leak so took some time and finally after months the 86 is back and healthyish. The timing is off at the moment so I need to go in and check it out when I have time.

Haven't posted on here in ages. Almost bought a late 2008 BMW 330D LCI back in May this year, but there was a problem with its history which I found through doing a car check even though the dealer said it was all clear when I was looking around the car - always do your own checks no matter what. To be fair I don't think he had done as indepth a check as I did so he was unaware and refunded my deposit no questions. Normally I'd do a vehicle check before even setting off to see the car, but experience showed that these E90 330Ds don't hang around when they're a decent specification. I also expressed interest in a house around the same time (my first home), so after the car ended up being a bit of a flop I just gave up with looking for another car for the foreseeable and as such I'm still rolling around in the E46 after almost six years. 166,000 miles now...

Long time no post from me too... what to say? I'm alive, Ive made changes to my 'fleet' of cars...

I've used my Abarth little to none this year, I sold the E36 I had as well (its in good hands...long term members here can maybe guess who has it!) , I still have the Minor and since then I've had two major changes...

I had a 2.0 Golf '3.5' 2.0 Convertible as well as a Astra G estate...

The golf was a great lil summer machine...

The Astra is a proper mile muncher being the 1.7 DTi...

In the 3 months Ive had it its done little over 4,000 miles (Its less than 500 milea from 200k as of now!)

Hi! It's been a while since I posted something on turboduck last time... anyway, that's my car. Some may say it's a finacial mistake, but for me it's fulfilled dream and every day motivator.  🙂   Even if that car costs me a lot of money and sometimes also my nerves, I never regret owning her.

'05 Alfa Romeo GT 3.2 V6 (Busso engine) with some minor mods;

  • added limited slip differential Q2
  • modified (larger) intake manifold with bigger 89mm throttle body from Porsche 
  • modified air intake for bigger throttle body + pipercross filter
  • CF2 exhaust manifolds (decated)
  • exhaust 2x2.25 -> 2.75 on 3 silencers + Ulter duplex at the end
  • AP coilover suspension
  • and few more mods

You just started your real TDU life. Lol, like, literally. 

Yea, kinda yes. Unfortunately I don't have as much money as I own in TDU, shame because it would be handy too. :x

Having owned a fair few cars, some that are 'financial mistakes'...The good times out weigh the bad! Just be sure to make sure it wont cause actual financial problem! 🙂

But a real engined, Alfa GT! I do envy you, the sound of them alone is epic!

Nice to see you're still buying quality cars @calster17 ! 😛

Bloody hell it's been a while. Last time I posted I'd just bought a 350Z... unfortunately I sold the 350Z in August 2019 - I got a new job where I got a company car so I figured it didn't make sense leaving the Z in the garage never being driven. I quickly got bored of not having a fun car though so went in search of a MK1 MX-5, something cheap and old school fun. But then I went and won a Mk3 MX-5 on eBay which was right near my gfs house, so this is the 3rd one I've owned... ffs lol 

It's a 1.8 Niseko edition, I've done a few things to it but still lots to do... primarily, it needs lowering desperately! Looks like an SUV. This lockdown has slowed progress down considerably but anyway, here's a very dirty picture of her:

Once again it's been awhile. Growing up means having less time to do things I'm afraid. Since the last time, I blew up the 4age in the 86 and had to park it for awhile. I finally decided on doing an engine swap, and I was originally going to run a 4age 20V with ITBs, but for the same money and more power, I decided to go with a 3sge Beams instead. Swaps currently getting done at a local shop and should be done very soon. To say I'm excited is an understatement. Should be somewhere in the area of 210 crank horsepower and weigh in around 950 kgs.EVWRucHU8AAmyNE?format=jpg&name=900x900  

Extremely candid shot a Corolla friend of mine got when my car died.

Apparently the yellow 240sx is Tanner Foust's old Formula Drift car from back in the day.
