By improved efficiency, I mean that the larger wheel will require less exhaust manifold pressure to maintain a given level of boost. The lower exhaust manifold pressure will then allow a greater mass air flow through the engine for that given level of boost. For a visual comparison of the size difference between an L and an HL wheel, see this post



I've presented data in this discussion (post #381) showing that it is possible to hold 20 psi of boost to redline with a ported housing and clipped L wheel. This should also be possible with an H/HL wheeled unit. Some will argue that you are just blowing hot air when doing this, but I would propose (and the data I've collected support this) that since the 19T compressor efficiency is ~70% under these conditions, the limiting factor is the turbine wheel and/or housing which results in excessive exhaust manifold pressure.

If the turbine wheel is large enough, it should be possible to reduce the housing limitation by using an EWG. However, the clipped L wheel does not appear to be large (efficient) enough to benefit from removing the TD04 housing limitation (by using an EWG)... see post #876



I suspect that the relationship between exhaust manifold pressure and boost pressure is not linear. In other words, at a moderate PR, say 2, the relationship may be 2:1 as suggested by Blouch. However, as you approach a PR of 3, the relationship may be growing exponentially. Although I have not measured it, I would not be surprised to learn that the exhaust manifold pressure is well over 50 psi at high rpm and boost levels with my clipped L wheel.

I suggest that if you are not compressor or compressor housing flow limited (as I believe is the case with the 19T upgrade), that the relationship between exhaust manifold pressure and boost pressure will dictate how much peak power is achieveable. So while its possible to maintain target boost to redline, there will always be MAF taper due to the increasing EGBP to maintain that boost and the flow limitations of the cylinder heads.



Again this will only work if the turbine wheel is large enough to maintain target boost at the lower EGBP made possible by using the EWG. If it is, mass flow through the engine will increase due to the reduced restriction and the additional overall benefit of venting the excess pressure to atmosphere.



Depends on your objectives. EWG with a smaller housing (in some cases) will provide better overall performance. This obviously, is not always true, but can be with carefully chosen components (and likely a lot of trial and error to get to those components).

Can't argue though that the small 16g is a good bet if cost effectiveness and plug and play are your main considerations.



I suspect that there is a potential 5-10% peak power improvement to be had with the larger wheel. Hopefully the turbo failures are behind us and you and xsnap can get the data to show if this is possible
I'm in agreement with everything here. Except something about using EWG on 31lb turbos making 240-280hp seems like a waste of $. Why not just port the IWG hole or upgrade the IWG afterward you'd think this would be good enough.

Default Pink Vader Stage 2.5 Upgrade

Not dyno porn, but subie porn none the less .

Enjoy (sorry cell pics).

http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...eat=directlink Basically as is stock FULL 02-03 rex swap (besides 2.5RS bumper, 05 STi hoodscoop, and HID headlights, amber corners, clear lower blinkers, clear side blinkers, JDM tail lights)

However, he did say that going to an EWG could make it possible to run and hold 20psi+ from 3500-7000rpm, but the tuner would be THE KEY to making it work. The tuner would have to manipulate WGDC and actually open the EWG at higher rpm to alleviate the pressure, but not reduce the gas velocity. Unfortunately, at that point, one would have paid for:

TD04H/HL-19T turbo(~$450 from Blouch)
EWG up-pipe($200)
EWG ($350)
Great tune(varied price)
…plus the turbo is being worked HARD.
Hey Ryan, check out my WTi prototype DP (link in post #1202)...

PT Monstah TD04L with 19T/H wheels ($422 shipped)
Vishnu DP ($50 used -estimated because purchased with a TBE for $150)
TIG welding done by Ted at Native Sun, CO 80487 ($140)
Tune this week by Harvey at Boost Creep Ltd. ($350)
...plus I'm only going up to 18psi (not being worked HARD).

Tyme will tell .

Haha, finally, you and I have found a common ground!

I agree, a USDM 2.0L wrx stage 2 TD04 only needs a IWG.

With my set up, I really would like to do some HEAVY porting in my IWG.

I was talking with Harvey (owner/tuner of Boost Creep Ltd.) last week. We talked about the reasons that there isn't much difference between the PT 19T/H-HL and the Blouch 19T/L-clipped (on the same 2.0L wrx set up).

The bigger H-HL-TE04H wheels in the hot side should help for sure but needs to be fed, otherwise you will not see a lot of difference. Porting the IWG will make a way to get the wheels up and going. He has never heard of anyone, ever, doing a set up like my prototype... he is thus stoked to see if it yields a decent gain. The EWG will help out for sure, but costs a lot, and still may not show a difference (PT or Blouch) it will just help WGDC/psi-responce. Using the adjustable actuator will not be fun when driving under your set spring tension... and that is just going to affect WGDC. Both paths (EWG, actuator) will help gain some head room, but will not really show a big difference in awhp/awtq dyno numbers --- when comparing Blouch or PT TD04's. The issues being trim-size, back pressure, WGDC, all affect how the turbo will perform as is. The IWG is such a different world from a EWG. When using either you are thus in one of those two worlds, and you tune accordingly. However, they are still on the same small TD04, and we are still not seeing any difference in dyno numbers...

Food for thought; being put to the test THIS week .

Cheers,
~Wolf

Default PNK-VDR Update

Hey everyone,

Tune Date is set:
-Saturday @ 6pm
-The boost Creep Ltd (Longmont, CO)
-Harvey tuned (owner)

I should be able to fire up Pink Vader tomorrow, to see what the VTA-IWG-DP sounds like ... but the IWG's dump pipe is about 10 inches above and about 5 inches to the side of the axle boot haha it is always something when it's never been done before! So I am probably going to need to fab a heat shield now.

Also --- she maaay be changing to a Stromung axle back, but definitely needs a different mid pipe with a flex section (which I have now).

This leaves me with some spare time.... meaning I should have time to do the FAT turbo timer install --- including the dremmeling of my dash vents to allow it to be flush with the bezel (under the red JDM hazard button), and I'll then be able to wire in the red push start button start (yes, I have the big STi starter key lol).

Cheers,
~Wolf

Well is been pretty hectic at work since I've been back. Got my extra spring in my EWG this morning, cleaned off all the flanges and got everything ready for install, and then inspected the rebuilt turbo.


There is a scratch on the compressor wheel, and I noticed that the wheel has the letter "Y" stamped in it. Its about 35% done uploading to youtube now. Just interesting observations. Perhaps someone can determine whats up with the letter "Y" thing.

Ok just got off the phone with PT, and James said that the scratch on the 19T wheel won't hurt anything. Let's hope that's accurate.

Off to o'reilly's to get some gasket paper to make an oil drain tube gasket.

Hopefully I will have this car running this evening. I also tested my EWG and currently have a spring pressure of about 16-17 psi, so hitting the higher boost targets should be easier now.

When Harvey tunes your car, do some 20 or 22psi runs but have him set it at your preferred boost afterwards. That way your tuned for that much later if you up it and also to have similar comparisons with other turbos. 20psi is usually the magic number. I'd hate for you only to push 16psi and then say "if I had 4 more psi it would put the same down" when it probably wouldn't. Also to see how fast it spools 20psi vs vf series or other mitsu turbos.

cliffs
Your motor stock can handle 400hp, your mods compliment your turbo, so why not run 20psi just for the dyno and scale back boost where you really want it at..

Wolf,

you better not come up with another 'excuse' to not make your tune! save all that extra 'cool' stuff for after the tune! I NEED SOME PORN IN MY LIFE!

that is a crack! not a scratch! it is too ridged and has too much of a 'zig-zag' patern to be a scratch!

send this video to James! And closeup photos! Let him know what he has sent you. and so he can guarantee the wheel and your warrantee!

I am an engineer...my father is a metallurgist....we both agree that is a crack!

caution!!!!

The video is a bit deceiving on the "depth" of the crack/scratch. I'm going to try and get a better pic of it with my digital camera. Its tough to get the right lighting!

The thing is.....is when I called James, he said he remembered accidentally scratching it during machining/assembly (something with putting it together) but said that it should be fine.

I'm guessing this 6-month warranty doesn't cover blown engines due to turbo failure huh?

Guys I'm really unsure of what to do. If I send this back, that's it. I'm done with Performance Techniques and the 19T. Its on to a small 16G for me. I'm tired of my car being down for so long. I'm also tired of shipping costs and the turn around time. I want tried and true OEM quality and reliability. I'll be happy to give up another 200 RPM of spool for that.

I'm not complaining about the customer service. That's been great, but I just don't know if this is the right turbo for me.....

[Reserved for more pictures of compressor wheel]




Well what do you guys think?

I really don't want to put this thing on, only to have it blow to pieces in a thousand miles because of this scratch/crack. There is also quite a lot of wear and pitting on the compressor wheel itself. I can't really explain this, except perhaps its not brand new. I took both of my old 13T's and inspected them up close, and to be honest, aside from a bit of residue on the blades, the metal itself was in BETTER condition on BOTH wheels than this new 19T. One 13T had 40k miles, and the other had 100k miles.

I just don't get it.

I need to sleep on this. I'll decide what I'm going to do tomorrow.

Do you guys think asking for my money back at this point is a legit request?

yeah, its time to ask for your money back. it looks like a crack to me in one of the pictures and the video. i also would wonder what a "scratch" like that one would do at 170k rpms. how thick is the blade compared to the depth of the scratch?

do you live in a place thats 100+ in the summer? to be honest what would the IATs be at 20 or 22psi in 100+ heat using a top mount? i really think any td05 is gonna solve alot of the heat problems with little notice to turbo lag.

I'm not sure how thick the blade is. Can't really get my calipers down there.

It can get above 100F in the summer, usually around 90F though. Intake temps can easily be 100+F. I'm running a heatshield, and have a good top mount (spearco) with proper ducting, but ya....things still get hot under there.

Not sure how you think a larger hotside is going to solve any heat problems though, or why I would even have a heat problem.

With my 4EAT, I would honestly not expect full boost (20 psi) until 4,000 RPM in 2nd gear on the small 16G. The way the transmission loads the engine is a bit funky in the lower RPM's.

This is one of the subjects that made me want to tune w/ Harvey. He loves subies; I think almost as much as I do . I've had 12 in the past 8 years, really! We are basically starting at a bar of boost and going up from there... We also agreed that at some point, the benchmark of 20psi would be ran for a pass on the dyno, so no worries. As long as my PT doesn't end up bombing or my prototype just being "a lot of hot air" (pun intended ha) then I should be wiiicked happy with my set up!

its like a 35lb/min compressor compared to a 31. your not going to have to run 22psi to get the same cfm. is there a special reason to run 20 or 22 psi?

I will for sure Milo!

I originally planned on running the corn (this is why I'm using PE650's). However, I am moving in a week to Cali, where E85 is 20 miles away (as the closest station). Where I live currently in CO, I have a Shell just .5 miles away!!! I'm super bummed on this issue. This is a GF8 (wagon) so I was dabbling with the idea of transporting (a big container) the E85 to a 55 gallon drum in my garage in CA...

BUT for now, unfortunately, I am going to be using Shell V-Power 91 .

I am going to be tuning at aprox 4980 ft above seal level, at 6pm MT. For those reading who are not living in CO, this means that if I had my tune anywhere around noon the temps could easily be 90 deg, where as at 6pm... the temps will be 50-60 deg !

(Also, at this elevation there is no such thing as humidity )

Cheers,
~Wolf
WTi

P.S. You live in Steamy-B? Wiiith an 05 STi HTA68'd on corn? BTW then that is the same Shell station where I fill up at lol.

I have a FULL 02-03 wrx wagon swap... I know my motor is tip top, even at 120k (mechanic who swapped her, fully broke her down and replaced what was needed) I even have a tighter clutch close to stage 1 spec, but the tranny is what I am most weary about. I would never go more than 300 awtq with a bug eyed tranny --- with this many miles... I would LOVE a JDM 5 spd, if anyone has one just lying around for me . BTW I planned on doing the "scaling-back technique", I'm tuning at 5k ft, Steamboat is 7k ft, and I'm moving to Cali at basically sea level, so I need some head room to allow for change in humidity/elevation for sure.

Just got off the phone with James. I have some pretty important info.

-----------
James is no longer going to make the 19T upgrade for the wrx. (Yes you heard me right)
-----------

He was very pleasant to work with over the phone and customer support was not an issue with him. However he said the forums were causing him a "pain in the ass" dealing with all the problems. He said people are sending back their turbo's and asking for refunds because of the failures presented in this forum.

He is going to give me a full refund, so that's nice. I told him that I was just too nervous about that gouge in the compressor wheel to run it.

I'll be going with a small 16G myself.

Sorry to hear this as their customer service and desire to make things work seemed to be top-notch. I still 'd at the bolded part. The forums have never been the problem. The problem is that everyone in this thread who bought one of their 19T turbos seems to have had trouble with it. Its not our fault that things failed and we are discussing it. I wish them all the best with future turbos, but don't blame us/our forum for your misfortune.
