I know a couple of guys asked about turbos. This one is just the install but not tuned yet but interesting how he does it. Not for keeping it all under the hood though.
Watched them all last night. I cant remember what video it was but he did speak on grabbing the head off the 08 and doing some port work and maybe put it on the 05 motor. Like you said it won't work but we'll see where he goes with that. Hopefully he finds out sooner than later that picking up a good running 08-09 i6 will be his best option. I sure hope he does go all the way through to the end of this project.Cool. He's just not working on that turbo build though. Sure hope he doesn't try to swap in the 05 motor into the 08 electronics because we all know that won't work. I'll bet he's gonna hunt for an 08-09 motor if he can get the body and chassis together.
@limequat Would you please explain more about the E67 capabilities (and limits) as a forced induction controller?I mean, not the way I would have gone but kudos to him for doing his own thing. The 05 PCM is virtually not tunable for boost. But the 08 PCM (E67) is almost as versatile as an aftermarket ECU.
Hi Rick,@limequat Would you please explain more about the E67 capabilities (and limits) as a forced induction controller?
For example, are there additional I/O's available, can some I/O's be reassigned, can boost control be achieved, what are the absolute pressure limits and so on.
I happen to have a 2wd controller out of a 08/2007 TB. It has a tiny E67 stamped on the backing plate, so I'll assume it's the controller you mention. I'm interested to work with you when it comes time to address power adding mods using the stock ECM.
