Re: WW2

Mine is a little louder than i anticipated.

And heres some new info i logged today, hooked up a vsm to data log. Here is what we saw.
Baro..13.45
Ebp....13.5
A couple runs around his shop. These runs were with in 1 psi. From the screen shot comparisons.
2800 rpm
79% throttle
28 lbs boost (analog)
22 psi ebp (after correction)

Not bad for a stockish turbo. Less than 1 to1

thats the way i was planning on doing it, some ppl said you had to remove the turbo, but i didnt think you had too, should i use any lock tight or anything to put the nut for the wheel back on or is the few hits from the impact enough?

Re: WW2

I started it by hand untill the the shaft starting spinning. Then hit it with the impact untill i could see the same number of threads protruding, which for mine is 3. I see no need for loctite etc. as the wheel tightens as it spins during normal operation. I seen a guy on youtube do it... I was just very careful holding the impact to not put pressure on the shaft.

I did however have to pull the top rear oil plug on the head to get my angle socket in and remove the bottom rear cover bolt, and had to remove the crank case vent box to fit the impact.
It maybe took me an hour with my buddy handing me tools while i laid on a sleeping bag acroos the top of the motor.
I turned the speed down when installing the new wheel, billet aluminum vs. a steel shaft may not be the ideal situation when using an impact. But it worked for me.

Re: WW2

Don't Loctite!

I did when I rebuild my turbo back in August . . . it was not fun to put the Gen 2 WW on the other week, lol.

The wheel spinning is in the "tightening" direction of the threads, so no worries there about it coming loose.

Re: WW2

Please don't ever use an impact gun on a turbo. It causes tremendous stress on the shaft. I know it's a pain, but pull the turbo. If you hold the turbine wheel shaft with vise grips, you can unscrew the wheel very easily.

And like others posted.... Don't use lock-tite.
