    He neglected to respond to my claim against him so paypal refunded my money. I hope the rest of you are getting somewhere with your cases.

    Has anyone had any progress? I've got lines on people who had previous experience with him to see if they have information on him. I think it's funny he's contacted a few of you but not me. Lol It is weird though, he looks to have been a positive member of the San Diego dsm and drag racing...

    Btw there's at least 2 more guys that purchased stuff from him that have messaged me but they aren't posting in the public thread.

    We need to compile everyone's cases against him. Compiled I'd think there's a better chance the authorities will make a serious effort at arresting him. He's a f***ing scum bag. Selling that intake twice is blatant scamming.

    Derrick Delaossa (WIKDGSX619)

    Well that's not what I wanted to hear. The more people I find, the more of the same story I hear. I bought the magnus v3 intake with all the accessories and a new s90 throttle body. Sounds like you were promised the same intake. If you haven't already I suggest you file a paypal claim on your...

    Difference between 2ga and 2gb AWD rear Knuckles/Spindles

    Does anyone have a photo reference of the difference between the 2ga and 2gb rear knuckles or spindles, however you like to call them. I have been told that the AWD rear suspension I just pulled from my 95 gsx parts car already has the 97-99 spindles. I would like to know how to tell the...

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    Thats the thing I don't think its a healthy turbo for whatever reason. I have wanted to do another test with the pcv and everything disconnected like I did before, take a video of just how much air blows out the crank case breather. Its stupid how much comes out of there. I've been BLTing to...
  15. NightRider97

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    Yea and see I've for one eliminated the PCV from the system during the tests. I went through several tests before determining that the blowby is coming from the turbo oil drain. Thats definitely where its coming from, I don't know why but thats for sure where its coming from.
  16. NightRider97

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    Yea I have spoken to Nate or something like that at FP and he argued with me on the phone about it leaking so much boost through the drain. They insist that there's no way it could possibly be leaking that much through the seals into the crank case, but I've got the thing right here and it does...

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    Thought I'd update this. I put a thermal exhaust on the car and that helped but it still didn't boost right, it would work for a while then wouldn't and it got extremely annoying. I discovered literally 99% of the boost the turbo would build would go right into the crank case. I did a BLT at the...

    do you guys think this evo x is worth it

    Honestly dealerships don't like modified cars. I think he's pulling your chain. When you modify a car, unless you find someone that wants those specific mods done to it, you take value from the car. This is simply because you have limited the market for people who might have been interested in...

    Who's the guy that builds Ford Turbo Coupe's / SVO's?

    I know there's a very respected member here that builds and modifies Ford 2.3l turbo coupe thunderbirds and SVO mustangs. Can anyone send me his profile? I need to talk with him about a friend how inherited a turbo coupe and wants to start modifying it.

    Officially Bankrupt

    I'm sorry, but its difficult for me to comprehend how our legal system can justify that as fair? I work my ass off 56hrs/week almost 1/3 of my paycheck goes to taxes or gov funded programs I will never get to use. I live within my means most of the time. When I don't I bite the bullet and sell...

    Engine acts like theres a vacuum leak, but no boost leaks?

    No I've been told for some time that it smokes blue on acceleration. But I always thought my blue smoke and crank case pressure issues were from bad rings in the engine, but my compression test came up perfect so I'm back to thinking for some reason the turbo seals are not sealing.

    This boost leak test has me stumped

    I did exactly that, tested at the throttle body and I have no blowby coming from the valve cover breather anymore. Test it from the turbo and all the boost leaks out of the valve cover breather. Here's what baffles me. There's no shaft play in the turbo and its always had a FP restrictor on it...

    Looking for puller fan recommendations

    Get a single Syclone fan install it on the passenger side of the radiator, it will pull more than enough air for your car. Its something like 2100cfm. Moves a hell of allot of air. Its big though and requires it to be mounted on the passenger side of the radiator.

    This boost leak test has me stumped

    I'm having this exact same issue with a FP3052 that has always had a restrictor on it. Leak down and compression tests on this engine are perfect. The air is definitely leaking into the crank case via the compressor side of the turbo. So I'd honestly like to know, why did this happen? This guy...

    Engine acts like theres a vacuum leak, but no boost leaks?

    Found what was causing this today, plus more. The EGR blockoff plate appears to have warped and is leaking quite fast. I also discovered that when I boost leak test from the throttle body I get no sign of crank case pressure like I do when I test at the compressor housing of the turbo. So I'd...

    Engine acts like theres a vacuum leak, but no boost leaks?

    Even if the only place its leaking out of is the valve cover? Basically if I don't plug the valve cover breather port it just constantly leaks out of there and if I shut the air source off its just gone in less than a second. If I plug the hole it will hold boost but as soon as I open the valve...

    Engine acts like theres a vacuum leak, but no boost leaks?

    This engine has never ran "properly" its always been a problem. I bought it from a professional DSM mechanic and it was not as it was sold to me as being. But I've done my best to make what I have work, until now, it just doesn't want to let me find whats causing this issue. I can't move on in...

    Engine acts like theres a vacuum leak, but no boost leaks?

    I've had several threads over one ECMlink for a couple weeks asking about what could cause my issue but no one ever responds, if they do its something completely unrelated to my question or problem. Like the title says I have an issue with my engine it started to become obvious about 2 weeks...

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    Well Im not sure what I did, but all of a sudden it started boosting. I laid on it last night and it backfired pretty badly, so I babied it til I got home. Nothing looked amiss so I think my tune just isn't very good for this new turbo. I took it out this morning to check the tune and when I...

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    Well is it really safe to disconnect the down pipe from the O2 and run it open for a few miles to check it out? I don't like how the O2 exits above the oil filter, it makes me nervous, but if others have done it without issue I might try it.
  31. NightRider97

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    Hey Justin, the first filter, we will call it the primary, is just a generic Aeromotive inline filter, there is no restrictor ports in it, the second one is the FP filter with the restrictor in it for the ball bearing turbo. So essentially only the secondary filter has the restrictor in it and...

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    I checked my oil feed line to the turbo today and its flowing oil, plenty of it, so I don't know how that could damage anything. From what I've read, over pressurizing the oil passage in these will only make it burn oil and not damage anything. I'm a little concerned with running with the O2...

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    What do you mean blown? Excuse my ignorance I mean no disrespect. Just trying to understand. How would this turbo be blown and show no other signs? I'm not burning oil, I saw no more than normal oil residue in the compressor housing today, I'm running the proper oil restrictor and always have...

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    Holy crap! I think you just solved my extremely high engine bay temps! OMG. I never knew they would do that. Good thing I have a new Apexi down pipe and thermal exhaust waiting to go on the car. I wonder if this will even lower my engine temps because my engine keeps over heating.
  36. NightRider97

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    No cat but yea theres a flex section. Why do you ask? I've pushed my BLT to 30psi, over that I've got one pipe that blows off because I ran out of t bolt clamps. It takes about 15 seconds to leak back down to nothing. But its leaking past my rings and out the crank case vent.

    Garrett GT3076R Cant build more than 10psi boost

    Alright I've done search after search and read through a bunch of threads, I can't seem to find an answer to my problem. I have a Garrett GT3076R DBB turbo with a special mitsu flanged, internally wastegated exhaust housing that has been on my car for about 500 miles. I cant seem to get this...

    Just bought a used FP 3052...opinions?

    Dang, you have the exhaust housing I want for mine. lol. I still haven't installed mine but I know that exhaust housing alone costs more than what I gave for my 3052. I did allot of research before agreeing to buy it. The 3052 is all around one of the most desired turbos for our cars. Its big...

    Thermostat and coolant temps

    I'm going to keep an eye on this thread because my car has been doing the same exact thing lately. Only with my car I think I've let it get hot enough to over pressurize the radiator cap and it blows half or more of the coolant out on the ground causing it to over heat more. I didn't notice it...

    Hallman Pro Boost Controller Failing to Regulate Boost

    Doing what wrong? The MBC is hooked up to the turbo compressor housing, hose comes out of housing nipple, into bottom of controller, hose goes out of side of controller into the wastegate. Pretty simple. I wasn't born yesterday and this is not the first car I've ever built.

    Hallman Pro Boost Controller Failing to Regulate Boost

    Alright someone is going to have to explain boost creep to me because the search function on this forum sucks. I can't believe all the crap posts it shows. Stuff that has nothing to do with what I searched for. I checked all the vacuum lines they are all still attached, my MBC is properly...

    Hallman Pro Boost Controller Failing to Regulate Boost

    Got a weird one here guys. I couldn't find anything anywhere on the net like this. My car has a new engine that I'm trying to get dialed in, but I noticed over the last few days my boost has been getting higher and higher. Tonight it was crazy. I have a Hallman Pro manual boost controller...

    Need to Vent. New Engine, Low Compression.

    I did a breaking period on it just for the heck of it when I got it in my car. Never figured it wouldn't take, or had already been screwed up. I down shift with it once a day to help ensure the rings are seated. Aside from rings, it would have to be valves not sealing properly. Honestly I...

    Need to Vent. New Engine, Low Compression.

    It was a fresh rebuild, I know the engine builder and the mechanic that installed it, that was put into another guys car for a few hundred miles. He decided that the engine didn't produce enough horsepower so he pulled it and sold it to me so he could build an all out race motor. I've had it...

    Need to Vent. New Engine, Low Compression.

    I just had a fresh 6 bolt engine installed in my GST, probably don't even have 1000 miles on it yet. I started to notice my EGT's were getting high during cruising conditions, so I started to investigate the cause. Began to think my cams came out of time somehow, but sure cant find any signs...

    Wont rev past 7k

    My car wasn't touched in terms of wiring so there's no harness side faults, and I purchased the dynatek wiring harness that is plug and play for a 2g dsm. I even sent the entire harness back the last time the box fried and had them test it. They said there were no issues with the harness. Its...

    Yea right. You deal with sending in your amplifier 4 or 5 times, having you car down a month (for turnaround time) each time, and then report back how good their "SHIT" is.

    Wont rev past 7k

    On a side note, cus I'm not sure whats causing you to stop at 7k at this point, ditch the dynatek. I was one of the first members here to run one and they are junk. I've never had one last more than a couple thousand miles. I've burnt out 4 or 5 since I've had mine, 2 of them this year alone...
