Hey folks just a quick update for the three people following me. The Turbo is being redone, and will back to me in about a week. I will update this post with regards to the bits that I have procured to help me manage boost, temperatures and pressures etc....
So considering I have a bit of time before I go boosted, I decided to taking the log boat from China approach. If I can wait a month to get the sensor, I can save myself a lot of $$. Like a map sensor for $10 instead of 50 etc etc.. I ordered many of these as soon as I received the shipment of parts. I am on the fence about these things, but the saving grace will be the exhaust temperature sensors, they will be the last line of defence to make sure nothing gets melted in case something goes wrong. I can setup a failsafe in the computer if any of them go over a particular temperature it will go into safe(er) mode. I am on the fence about drive by wire for my throttle body. Kinda techy, but it enables me down the road to do a rudimentary traction control system if/when I get a driveshaft speed sensor, and wheel speed sensor. It also lets me to do LHM in case anything goes wonky.
The only other thing I am trying to figure out is doing boost by gear. The problem is letting the computer know which gear I am in. The G245 has no provision for it, and I am not sure if/how I could build one. But I am getting ahead of myself. Here is what I have so far.
So here is the 3 bar standard GM MAP sensor. $14.51 for the sensor.
Here is the Gm style inlet temp sensor. $25.64 for the sensor and plug, $15.05 for 2 bungs. I may get a second one, that way I can put one before the intercooler and one after, to see how well it is doing it's job. I already have the GM style coolant temp sensor, so I am good there.
Here are the EGT sensors with fittings to tap into the exhaust housing. $37.33 for four of them
Here is the canbus interface for the EGT to get the information into the computer. $116.00
Here is the 3 port boost control solenoid. There are 2, 3 and 4 port. I did the three port one as it works best with the blow off valve I have. $24.75. I took a look at tons of them, they are all the same format and design, so I can only think that they are likely re-branded from this company in China. Some were charging $200 for the same one (it appears). We will have to wait and see how it turns out.
Here is the corn controller. It is a standard GM style ethanol sensor. $29.03 for the sensor, $4.11 for the plug and $26.35 for the 6an adapters (best price I could find) . I will have to replace about 20 feet of hose to run E85, worth the investment to experiment with this. Also it will allow me to automatically adjust my tune based on what fuel I actually have in the tank vs. what the pump says.
Also I got some microswitches. I am going to program this to flat shift, which means that I can set how high my revs go when I put my foot on the clutch. Essentially I can put my foot to the floor and keep it there and shift through the gears without it redlining when I depress the clutch. Less laggy, more boosty... at least that is what the internet says, and for the $2.00, it is worth the experiment. People who do this also play with anti-lag, I am not sure I want to go down that road until I upgrade my internals.
Here is my IAC unit. Tom at 02 again of course makes great stuff. Here is the adapter on the jeep IAC unit. $14.19 for the IAC unit. It was $69.90 USD for the adapter. I am not sure what that works out in CDN, probably about $100 with duty, taxes and shipping. This of course is just mocked up.
Thanks, and that is it for now. I will show off the rebuilt Turbo sometime next week (hopefully), and go into what housing I am using as well as the compressor wheel.
Still waiting for the MS gold box, I will take a look at it on black friday, still not anywhere close to swapping out the intake.
I am looking at a new/rebuilt steering box yet to be installed, along with correcting a problem with my heater valve, then looking to get my diff rebuilt with the ghost LSD insert, then I realised my clutch master is toast, which means I might as well do my pedal box as I have had the I.E kit for a year... and of course might as well put in the performance brake booster pivot sleeve while I am at it.(I have had that for a year). And then finalize a couple bits on my A/C and re-install my console, and then... and then ... and then....
How did I get here again?
