Default Port and polish turbo??

Hi

I've seen this thread on this subject:

Port and Polish stock turbo

But, it only talk about benefits and the thread go fast off topic.

Then, i want to know how to make a good, i mean a PERFECT, port and polish job for the housing of my stock VF48. I know that i have to disassemble, but i don't know where i can remove material to keep solidity and increase velocity of exhaust gas. If you have before and after pictures, it would be the best to see what is the purpose of this job.

Any input ?


thanks

This is an art and REALLY should be farmed out to someone who knows their ass from a hole in the ground like Grimmspeed. Haters are gonna hate on me for saying this, but you CAN make your turbo perform worse by grinding the wrong area. Think of it this way....I can give you a blow by blow with pictures on how to make your own guitar, but it could still sound like a plastic one from the drug store.

Thank you for warning, but i know that i'm an enough artistic guy for doing this.
I will not show my resume, so just trust me. And it's MY VF48 that i will grind.

As you said in this thread, in the post #2 :

Can you help me ?

OP browse through this thread and you will get some ideas. http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...=729711&page=7

Soobaviator is the man when it comes to P&P. I haven't seen him on anymore though. Good luck and be safe. P&P'ing can get dangerous with all the metal splinters. Wear your PPE.

thank you oguitar.

Pour les autres petits comiques, je vous inviterais à vous abstenir de répondre tant qu'à ne pas faire avancer le sujet et à discriminer certaines personnes qui n'utilisent pas l'anglais comme première langue. Je suis déçu que ces commentaires proviennent de modérateurs. Ça confirme votre ouverture d'esprit. J'imagine que vous n'êtes pas capable de déduire le sens d'une phrase s'il y a un mot qui n'est pas correct.
