Starting a turbo build...Videos of it running :D
« on: September 24, 2008, 10:12:01 pm »
Today I cut some excess off of the Intermediate shaft. I didn't try to lighten it as I am not too concerned with weight. I basically left it the same size as the small end. I didn't even take out the casting marks. Much better spinning...I don't think it would have been worse if I had chucked a thorny locust into the lathe and spun it  :lol:  I will post pictures of the finished product maybe tomorrow.

what do you think of the line where the seal ate into the intermeadiate shaft? All the pictures of the head and engine are before I took it to the machine shop. Hopefully they will look better when they return.

The line looks normal. How deep is it though?

I can't tell I tried to use the calipers on it. I am guessing about .020"...you can't get the calipers into the grove really. here is a big picture.


I could blow any of the other pics as well if needed like this one, you can kind of see the line.



I just thought that was cool. I balanced the thing and still you can see the casting numbers and GERMANY. I took quite a bit off too.

what do you guys think of the rusty bottom end? The head is going out here soon as well. As soon as the guy northwest of me gets back with the cost of a built and ported head  :twisted:

Just got the call from the engine borer... the crank and bores were fine. He was considering honing and putting it back since he couldn't find pistons for it....but I had given him pistons to bore the motor to. He eventually found them. He said it would be about a week. He also found a sleeve for the intermediate shaft. THe mains and rods he said showed little to no wear at all and I could reuse the thrust washers :D
    I also took apart the head last night. I will hopefully be sending it and the IP out tomorrow. FULL PORT and undercut valve job for the head and GILES for the IP and injectors...you only live once right? I am breaking the bank for this so I hope all goes perfectly and no problems or do overs. I am hoping with the Giles IP and injectors and the fully ported head to make some more HP over stock, but still get some mileage. I will post some before and after head port pics as soon as I get it back.

Looks great!  Everybody is turning down their IM shafts, I guess I'll do it too.  :P

I have a 86 jetta. It is nothing special but I am going to try and make it look like a respectable car. It has some serious issues with the pass rear fender area where someone hit it, but other than that is the most solid vw I have ever owned.

My head is now at air cooled engines plus getting the full treatment of some under cut valves and a port and polish. AND about 4 hours ago I sent off the Injection Pump up north to a man named Giles. He also has my injectors as well. Still waiting on the engine.

I won't be able to afford it now, but when I can would this be "the best" intercooler for my 86 jetta that my new turbo is going in? if not please let me know what would be.

I am all for good quality parts that work...I know absolutely nothing about intercooling a car, please help.

I know very little about intercooling as well, apart from my research here.  However, that intercooler seems excessively large.  It says it is rated for 800 cfm.

If you use the turbo calculator here and type in the specs for the 1.6: http://www.not2fast.com/turbo/glossary/turbo_calc.shtml  You will find that a 1.6 boosting 30 psi at 6000 rpm only uses about 300 cfm.  :shock:
