can i install turbocharger in my BMW Z4?
can i install turbocharge in my BMW Z4? if so how? where? can i have some info? do the public auto garage do it for me if i pay them? im willing to pay for the turbocharger for my z4 but....where? how? what shop? :o
The best place to install a turbo on a Z4 is either in the trunk or on the roof. Bring it to my public auto garage and we can do the job for only $10,000.
what about between the two seats? :D
Holy crap, that looks like a real install on a Camaro or Firebird. That sucker must have some serious lag. WOW. 8O
I thought turbos were supposed to be mounted a bit closer to the actual engine than that.
Hobo, it is, i've been told that it's an "LT1 turbo kit"
don't know if it's true or not
EDIT: seems it is true 8O tryin to find the info right now
yes Bav, turbos are supposed to be mounted as close to the engine as possible, technically as close to the exhaust ports as possible, the farther away the more heat is lost, the more heat that is lost increases the lag of the turbo
also, the more heat that is lost, the less efficient the turbo is
figures that it's a bowtie-boy doin that type of install
oh jeebus cripes....
i found it
well, one of 'em anyways
go to www.camaroZ28.com
do a search for "STS turbo"
places selling 'em :rolleyes:
can someone say woman driver? :D
As an engineer i can respect the inginuity of it however i can't understand why on earth you would put it way the heck back there i mean howmany different joints must there be for the boost to leak outta? I wonder if it really gives you 60% hp and tq gains like it claims that seems a little gratuitus.
As long as it's installed correctly I think it'll work. It'd just take some gettin used to.
Satty the engineer speaks. What part of it will "take some gettin used to".
I don't know. I had just woken up from a "nap" at school (Spanish Class) and decided to go on here for a little while. I don't remember this post at all. intresting.
29 minutes between posts...and both are "after" the nap?
Looks like a good engineer could design a douuble wall exhaust pipe to eliminate the heat loss?
