I remember there was already a little debate in here about those VTG chargers. It becomes more interesting at the moment since they can withstand the high temps of gas engines in the meanwhile..
But you would nee to have a little black box which will control the exhaust paddles in the turbine housing in corelation to the boost...
If you are an electronics guy it might be easy...

Off the top of my head, I don't see why you couldn't have a map sensor that controlled the vein of the housing.

Anyone brave enough to try this?

A MAP Sensor? No, a PWM controller is needed. BTW, there are already threads started on this topic.

For real? That would be great if someone would make that finally.
That makes things much more easy as today with the WG etc..

That turbo uses a pressure actuator. A boost controller could control it so long as you had a pressure source.

That turbo does not have a titanium compressor wheel either.

and you thought a standard GT47 was heavy.....

Daniel, what is the target market for that unit? All I'm familiar with are Rexroth-controlled units...

that wheel is the billet 71 wheel that many including myself have run on our cars. Its made of billet aluminum and cut on a 5 axis scale....The only thing different on that turbo james is that it has the vnt chra and the exh housing is something enormous.

Dont even bother guys.

maybe the parts might not be the same but the concept might be and the turbos are from garret which are on the ford s and garret is a pretty well known company if you know any thing about turbos . all im saying is the concept or desing used in the ford s which ford also uses on the international big rigs is the same style of turbo that just aint working so well the turbo has been redesined three times already they have gotten better but still aint very reliable in my opinion.
