Sorry about the bad video. It was taken on my iphone. This is about the 3rd or 4th RB swap I've done in a s13. I didn't like any of the motor mounts out there so I made my own ( even molding my own urethane parts) along with just about everything on the car. Including the turbo heat shield, and other covers out of SS. I stitch welded the entire uni body also. Also went with an external coil pack to forgo the prevalent problems the rb's have with the COP set up.
How To Clean a Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF)
Here I demonstrate the simple steps involved with cleaning your mass airflow sensor. In this particular case I was troubleshooting a rough idle on a 2006 Chevy Colorado 3.5, but these steps can work for almost any vehicle. If you have any questions feel free to post them and I will do my best to help!
RB20DET and HKS Cam gears
Sound of timing belt with cam gears?!
The Timing belt and tensionner/idler have been changed since then
This video shows the sound coming from a somewhat loose timing belt.
I found out when replacing the belt, that the belt skipped a tooth on the intake side, which might have been the reason why it looked so loose.
2010 update: the motor is still doing good, but the HKS GT2535 turbo need a rebuild after almost 100000km (60k miles) of lapping and abuse.
currently, a stock GTS-T turbo is in. and the car is still fun to drive, just less extreme
Rebuild is going to be done soon,
stay tuned for this project as well as other turbo/ tuning oriented projects
Fujitsubo 3" RB20DET
Some video from an ebay auction I found of a RB20 with Fujitsubo 3"
This video is one of my examples of how different Exhausts sound on RB's for a thread on Nico's RB Forum page. Please see some of my other videos to see examples of my car and some of my friend's cars. Content is purely for reference...
SR20DET Compressor Surge
Compressor surge is a phenomenon experienced when Boost pressure inside the intake tract builds up and has no convenient relief method. This is usually caused from the throttle plate closing quickly. Changing load conditions (off throttle) resulting in varying amounts of Exhaust gas can also simulate such conditions.
In such a case, the pressure takes the only way out through the turbocharger compressor housing. The unique sound is caused by the pressure charge encountering the spinning compressor wheel on its escape from the engine.
Compressor surge goes by many other names such as compressor stall, turbo dose or dosing, pigeon, turbo flutter/chatter and sometimes mistakenly wastegate chatter.
The car was thoroughly warmed up before filming. The Boost controller has been disabled allowing the car to run directly off wastegate pressure. The body panels have been removed due to a slowly progressing facelift. For more info on my car:
Props to Salman, my cousin, for introducing me firsthand to this wonderful, ridiculous phenomenon and also to Quail from sxoc for doing this s**t ages before I did. ;-D
