I can keep a close eye on things. Namely the rubber band holding out engines together.

I think it was called, "High Deep Blue"...I just checked Columbia Coatings site and they don't show that colour...I would call Brain at Columbia Coatings and he'll know which one it was...

They do show a sharp "Super Mirror Blue" and "Reflex Blue" that look great!

Mike- thanks

TonyG-any negative to running without the covers? I am thinking of doing this as well. You could check it so much more often.

Luke, how often has a rock gotten caught in your AC belt? I venture to say probably never. Then again, it is not toothed either.

Guess I've been lucky for years and years.

It would be very difficult for anthing to get into the timing belt. Take the covers off and look... It's damn near impossible.

Now.. add in the bottom engine trays and what exactly is going to get in from where?

It ain't gonna happen.

But will happen is when you have the covers on you can't check the tension, you can't check the condition, and you can't get a jump on any possible faulty water pump.... with out having to take the time to pull the covers.

I've seen a few times where the balance shaft belt has come apart and the belt and gotton tangled up with the cam belt causing the cam belt to break. If the cover wasn't on there that would not have happened.

I've also seen where a balance shaft roller bolt has come out, and the roller and the bolt, and the balance shaft belt were a tangled mess sitting there rubbing against cam belt. If he covers weren't there it wouldn't have happened.

I could go on and on about what I've seen in the cam covers..... and it ain't good.

With the covers off, I have very easy access to visually inspect, which I do on a weekly basis.

Hi Tony,
OT question. I've a 60-1 hifi stage V turbine trim in a #8 hot housing.
Would it be possible to bore out the #6 hot housing to fit the stage
V trim. I was thinking this might give me better boost threshold.
What's your opinion on this ? Oh, I plan to run max boost at 18psi.
Thanks

Assuming that you could, and I think you probably could, what you would end up with is exactly what you started with - - - a #8 hot side with a V trim turbine blade.


So I guess the answer to your question is no. Your boost threshold would be exactly the same. :-)


The thing here is that the difference between the 6 & 8 is the opening diameter of the turbine where the exhaust exits. The turbine blade is in this opening. So the only way you could fit your stage V turbine blade into a 6 hot housing would be to open up the diameter of the housing to the diameter of the 8 hot side (which you have now). And that puts you right back to square 1.

Yes, it is just a starting point, but it is a brand new 3.0l
