Thanks for the quick replys,
The motor is a 79 3.0 L carerra motor. Looking for 40 or 50 hp increase from stock- maybe 230 or 250 @ the flywheel? Nothing crazy, just some Turbo punch.
The turbo and headers were pre-purchased by me, the 3k was for install and sorting it out only, which never happened completely even after 2+ years in the shop!
The power loss/sputtering happens when the wastegate opens at @ 10psi.
she runs @ 210 when cruising down the highway at 70mph in 50 degree weather.
My cooler is in the pass. front fender well and is the updated carerra type, not a trombone style. No aux thermostatically controlled fans though.
No inter-cooler, aav and csv removed to make it idle down close to norm.
I will include pics tomorrow, please keep the questions and help coming, I need them desperately!
Pics tomorrow and thanks again!
'77 Ice Green 911s Targa that's almost a 930
