Re: Project Lex

Just ordered up a couple more things from MAP. Great prices thanks Chris!


Pro Sport Boost Gauge (30-0-30):

Depo Wideband Gauge/kit. Helluva price, never seen a WBO2 kit (w/ gauge) for this cheap before. And the gauge is a perfect match to the Pro Sports :

WOW that's a great price on that wideband. I'll have to keep that in mind.

Good price indeed, although an AEM is only 10 bucks more now-a-days.

Re: Project Lex

Yup, but on the Depo one, the gauge is the same as the Prosport, which is why I chose that. I'd like to keep all my external gauges as similar looking as possible, rather than having a hodge podge of different brands like I had in my Talon (SW, Greddy, Autometer, PLX...). Trying to keep it as clean looking as possible

Ha, yeah I hear ya. I actually spent a bit of time trying to figure out what to do because ideally I'd want a gauge that goes to 35 or 40psi. Problem is, I wanted to keep my gauges as similar as possible. So I didn't want to end up with another 40psi Stewart Warner, with some other brand WB, and a different brand EGT, and some other brand Oil Pressure. And I didn't want one that is boost only (no vacuum), so finding one greater than 30psi that also shows vacuum, with other matching gauges was hard. So I just settled on this as I will have a loggable MAP sensor in Megasquirt which will tell me my boost above 30psi. And I'm thinking since the gauge is mechanical, that if I go beyond 30, the needle will continue to wrap around. So I can see 35psi on the MAP sensor, and look at the gauge and just note to myself that "35 is when the needle is on the 's' in boost" or something, so I can still kinda know what's going on there I don't ever really plan to go much beyond 35psi. If that day comes, well then that may be the day I decide to go with a different boost gauge. But I forsee this one being just fine for me in the end

Re: Project Lex

I run 37psi on my 30psi gauge, works out great, lol, just pegs at 30 the whole time.

I am in the same boat though, can't decide what to do for a gauge that reads up to 40-45psi and a matching AFR one to go with it...someday I will get around to buying that stuff.

AEM maybe? It's one I am considering, I think their gauge goes up to 35psi or one of theirs does.

Re: Project Lex

Is yours mechanical or electronic? The one I got is mechanical, so I'm hoping the needle continues to sweep past 30psi, and doesn't just peg at 30.

You could consider wiring in one of the Evoscan NAV displays. It'd read your MAP sensor for voltage and you'd do the conversion.

Re: Project Lex

Mine is electrical which is why it stops at 30...the mechanical one keeps going, at least Jakes did in his evo.

The evoscan thing seems unnecessary.

Same reason I got all amber Prosport gauges for the Evo, that way they match each other as well as the gauge cluster. Cleanliness is like godliness, and godliness is, well, what we Mitsu (and ex-Mitsu) owners do best.

Re: Project Lex

I have a couple goals. Goal one is to just have this running decently on WG pressure this upcoming summer. And at that I hope to be in the 350-400 range. Then the following summer (when I have money and time to upgrade the drivetrain) I hope to turn it up to around 35psi and get 600-650 out of it. Then will probably turn it down to 30 or so for a safe street tune.

I think both those goals are very achievable, especially in the hands of Shane on the dyno He's magical!

Re: Project Lex

OK so like it was pointed out earlier, I got the wrong WG for my manifold. It appears mine is flanged for a 50mm HKS wastegate from what I've been told.

My question now is, from what I've read the HKS 50mm gate is supposed to have a firing ting that is built into the flange. But my manifold flange does not have that. So WTF? Stupid Chinese maybe? I'm about ready to say screw that flange and cut it off and have someone weld on a flange for a Tial.

Here's a picture showing the firing ring built into the flange that I thought this is stupposed to have:

Re: Project Lex

That fire ring piece does not get welded to anything, it just gets put in between the manifold flange and the wastegate.

It shouldn't take anywhere near 35psi to reach 600whp, unless your turbo or the rest of the setup really sucks. You can reach 600whp with a 4 cylinder with less than 35psi.
