Thank you Sir...

I feel bad I can't do a proper write up of this project but I don't have the time with work...
Eric from Rotary werk has done a great Job and has put his heart on this car also to make sure everything is to par..

It feel's great and it is a great turbo for the street...

I have the .91 back housing I am thinking to change to the 1.10 before tuning....
The turbo lag is not that bad in my opinion.....

Update:
Erick decided to change the thermostat on the stock radiator and the temp when down from 88c in heavy traffic with AC on, to 82C flat all day long...

For me was very important to have A/C in the car here in Miami Florida, and able to drive the car in heavy traffic without hiccups...

We have manage to solve the temp issue and keep a steady Amp ( volts) supply after the E-fan install by upgrading some parts..
Soon I will have her home...

estevan62274 videos are coming soon...

Good new after 5 month..... SHE HOME.....

I got the FB yesterday afternoon from Erick at Rotary Werks.. Car feel's great and drive good... Need little tweaking on the tune for street driving but nothing major..

Still breaking in the clutch, no boost only a few psi ..

The response on the BW S366 turbo is great in 4 gear a see positive boost on the street at 2200 rpm I can even hear the tial blow off valve discharging...

More to come...

If you are planning on running more than 26 psi I would suggest you to run a 1.00 or 1.10 back housing ,

Thanks for the compliment...

Yes stock wheels... Sleeper look for now ....

Eric shop is around Tamiami airport I am usually around there on Wendsday on my day off ... My idle is high (1600 RPM) when my air is on... The car has a idle control valve install wire to the Microtech that we need to adjust and play with it...

Thank you Sir for the reply...

I will get one 1.10 from Mike Turbo before going to the dyno for big boost..... I will also be installing two more 1000cc injectors as my primaries injectors and having 4 2000cc in the secondary rails.

What will be the lag diference between the .91 and the 1.10?


Will you think it will be that notable....

I try searching but no back to back dynos from a .91 to 1.10 in the same car..

When I dyno my car with the .91 the turbo wouldn't make no more power after 28 psi, and on the street after 120 mph car wouldn't keep pulling due to much back pressure and I was running the .91 with 3.5 exhaust.

I think with the 1.10 it should start to spool 400-500 rpm later than with the .91.

Day off today.. I got some little things done..

Exhaust housing 1.10 order today..
The 1000cc injectors are inn..

Short shifter install also... I love the short shifter...

We change the BOW spring today and program the Turbo smart E-boost on low boost ( 12.0 psi) and the car feel and drive much better and the turbo is much quicker to spool up ...

Ebay special for Turbo II... The divided one...

The manifold ports were clean and the WG position on the manifold look good..
So far so good .. 12 PSI of boost at the moment..

Almost forgot Erick ( Rotary Werks) welded some support to help with the heavy BW turbo..
