Two part video showcasing the sounds of my car with a turbo and without.
The 'without' part - car still has turbo bolted on however the piping before the MAF has been disconnected, and a prototype maf fitted in it's place. Air filtered and base fuel pressure adjusted, the car sounds ace.. This is even with the turbo manifold being a restriction, the ecu's timing automatically retarding alot above 3000rpm and the Exhaust note very much muted from the turbo itself. The engine note you hear is exclusively generated by induction noise only. I can only imagine what it'd sound like with an extractor setup...
How to get turbo flutter on an S15 Silvia 200SX

iBoost - Turbo your Car!
Make your ride sound turbo? There's an
app for that. iBoost: available on
the App Store: http://bit.ly/getiBoost.
Using iPhone's built-in accelerometer, iBoost works like a real turbo by calculating how your engine would be Boosting as you drive. Real sounds are
played as you accelerate and back off the throttle of your car, as well as
a realistic working Boost gauge on
Guaranteed a laugh every time you shift gears.
• Boost gauge with black or white
face to suit your dash
• Illuminated gauge mode for night time driving
• Induction, flutter and blow-off-valve sounds
• Adjustable blow-off-valve for selecting different styles of sound
• Easy one-step calibration
• Portrait and landscape mode supported
• Adjustable settings to tune sensitivity for your car
Plug your iPhone into your car stereo and confuse your mates - PShhhh!

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
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
Loud Toyota Supra Scares The Crap Out Of People
Is this the best toyota supra You've seen? if not please put up a link in
I'm not a toyota fan but I would drive this car any day, can someone tell
me how much horse power they think it has?
wanna c a faster supra?

How to change turbo actuator?
The simplest closed-loop control for a wastegate is to supply Boost pressure directly from the charge air
side to the wastegate actuator. A small hose can connect from the turbocharger compressor outlet, charge pipes, or
intake manifold to the nipple on the wastegate actuator. The wastegate will
open further as the Boost pressure
pushes against the force of the spring in the wastegate actuator until
equilibrium is obtained. More intelligent control can be added by
integrating an electronic Boost
Standard wastegates have one port for attaching the Boost control line from the charge air supply
line or Boost control solenoid. This
is the most common configuration and the only type of configuration found
on internal wastegates.
A dual port wastegate adds a second port on the opposite side of the
actuator. Air pressure allowed to enter this second port aids the spring to
push harder in the direction of closing the wastegate. This is exactly the
opposite of the first port. The ability to help the wastegate remain closed
as Boost pressure builds can be
increased. This also adds further complexity to Boost control, requiring more control ports on
the solenoid or possibly a complete second Boost control system with its own separate
solenoid. Use of the second port is not necessary. Secondary ports, unlike
primary ports, cannot be simply attached to a Boost control line and require electronic or
manual control to be useful. C02 can also be used to apply pressure to the
second port, to control Boost on a
much finer level.
A wastegate is a valve that diverts Exhaust gases away from the turbine wheel in a
turbocharged engine system. Diversion of
Exhaust gases regulates the turbine
speed, which in turn regulates the rotating speed of the compressor. The
primary function of the wastegate is to regulate the maximum Boost pressure in turbocharger systems, to protect the engine and
the turbocharger. One advantage of
installing a remote mount wastegate to a free-float (or non-WG) turbo includes allowance for a smaller A/R turbine
housing, resulting in less lag time before the turbo begins to spool and create Boost
Evo X BOV Surge/Flutter Dump (Recirc BOV)
hey guys, Im noticing some BOV surge when i get on the throttle... When I
floor it, there is no flutter but anything less than flooring it, I get
that flutter. Is there any way to tune this out myself or do I have to go
to a shop? Thanks guys
