I was thinking more of 1998I just posted over on Kappa Performance -
Yes, our website is very "1999" as you say but it works, is secure and is easy for me to update which is why we have kept it that way for so long. We actually had contracted a so called "developer" to create new site, well 2 years and a couple thousand dollars later I had nothing so I still have a bad taste in my mouth from that and am very apprehensive to get in bed with another "developer"
With that said if you know of any site developers that are willing to tackle an upgrade for us, maybe for some car parts let me know, I am very interested in getting in into your 21st century or whatever century this is here...
I will start our own thread in our section regarding our bolt on WR series turbochargers, sorry not changing the name.Dave:
If you do have those I second the motion to change the name.
Also price wise there is a bit of difference between you Wr3 (New EFR-6758) and the ZFR-6758 from ZZP.
Why the difference if they are both EFR-6758 bolt ons?.
Also do you have Dyno numbers base on the bolt on WR3 (EFR-6758)
Thanks for posting this over here :thumbs:. For the others that don't know, yep that's my car. I've lurked here awhile but just registered so that's why I posted it on CSS.net first.
Well the way their exhaust housing rotates the turbo so that the outlet lines up with the stock piping puts the wastegate right where the power steering bracket it. By moving the wastegate they only had to relocate the powersteering instead of modifying the whole bracket like people before me had done when trying to install a ZFR on their kappa. I know the power is low, especially the dyno'd numbers. On the dyno we couldn't get their fans set up so that there was decent airflow through the IC so the IAT2s were going through the roof. Like I said in my thread on css.net, I plan on picking up an intercooler this winter (maybe pwerks will have a black friday sale ) and I already have their IM spacer. With a retune, that should help me make a lot more top end power.I am still not sure why ZZP when installing this had to change/modify the Wastegate on the turbo.
Also although the IC should be upgraded with this larger turbo, is my understanding the Cobalt/HHR IC is the same as ours.
I just do not think the ZZP tuner was to familiar with our ECM vs the Cobalt/HHR, or there is something else going on here.
Our drive train loss is about 17% vs the 11% on a front wheel drive, so it would be interesting to see the Dyno graph with this tune.
