    Was is the right word, now they are impossible to find. They have a valve which is activated at around 1800rpm which changes the mount stiffness.

      You can also use K16-6721. It's much bigger turbo than K14-6707. Compressor and turbine side.
      We used this turbos at Fiat Uno Turbo years ago :-D

      My father has this turbo in his Uno, running around 150hp but more is possible...

      Very robust turbos, do the upgrade to Billet wheel!

      I hope you check the chassis next to the steering rack, is offen broken at the V8 under the "enforcement" sheet.
      Can look for pictures when you need.

      Good luck!

        Thanks Acki, I already have one rebuild 6711. it is getting ridiculously hard to maintain those cars, could not find the turbo mounting kit in Bulgaria so I'm waiting for it to be delivered from Latvia...

        Got the new turbo hoses.

          Got everything delivered and now the turbo is installed but still boost only to 0.3Bar. Now we have to check everything, MAP, N75, and all the vacuum lines.

            We have Boost

            And one more grapgh from 1000rpm

            I did a log from 2000 to 4500rpm and you can clearly see how laggy those old engines are, I floor it on 1900rpm and it still spools till 2500rpm

            It was all fun and games for several days tull yesterday when I've noticed white smoke when I accelerate, and this morning 300mL of coolant were missing.

            Now I have another upgrade on my mind - ARP studs and MLS gasket

            Here I was cougnt in action while fixing a friend's UrS6 wiring.

              I did a 0-200 test and the results look pretty good for 1.7ton car with heavy 18' wheels and tires (the tires are Pirelli P7 225/45 RFT).

              Also did a smoke check, it looks pretty smokeless for a remapped AEL which is good

                It is always fun with those old cars. Hello white smoke... It is not oil, and it is not coolant. Now lets see which is the culprit. My bets are 80% on the injection pump and 20% on the injectors.

                It ran a 17.2 where it should do16's

                So the injectors and the pump got out. The injectors were sent to a specialit to be refurbished and the pump will be checked when I come back from vacation
