 Post subject: Turbo Technics Kit
PostPosted: Sat Oct 11, 2003 10:05 am 
There is a guy selling a tt kit but he wont go under £175 for:

Some pipes
Carb and manifold
Some dodgy rst intercooler
fuel pump
fpr
Original filter box whatever use that is
Some copper pipe from B&Q supposed to be for the return
Throttle cable and bracket

Im peed off with mfi and would be glad to get rid but £175 just seems to be taking the proverbial...

How much is it worth?

Dave.

Depends on what anyone's willing to pay.
'Personaly' I'd really want a complete kit.

Most of the major parts are missing by the looks of it.
The Dizzy is missing from that list aswell as the Turbo, the plenum and a few other small things, so I'd say around £50.

Just put a kit together yourself, might be easier in the longrun.

Jason.

The plenum is there!

From the above list I could get all the bits easy but what carb do you use and what mods need done to it?

Dave.

As far as i remember Dan telling me, and Geoff from TT, the DFT is the way to go, as it's already sealed or somthing. all you gotta do is get it rejetted. I *think* you can use the DTMR as well....

Dan will be along in a min tho i'm sure

ideally, you want a leanburn engine with a rejetted dft carb. The only useful thing on that list seems to be the plenum and teh 'some' pipes. i wouldn't pay more than £50 for it.

In that case, I'd revise my price to £75.
As for the carb and mods.

It's all in the TT manual, which is available for download off my site.
I'm surprised you didn't know Dave. It's not like I've never mentioned it before!

Jason.

Dan i thought you'd tried the DMTR and it wouldnt work? wasnt it your TLDM that you did your power runs with - as its me who's been saying the DMTR is no good after thinking i heard you say that lol

dans rite,
sorry it woz a long day yesterday.
i did convert a dmtr carb to work on my tt xr2, but every time it come on boost it cut out, it woz floodin, i spent a few late nites tryin to sort it wiv no success, so i put my tt tldm back on and it run perfect again, i tryed the dmtr, cos i had one spare and its a bigger carb, in which i didnt think the tldm could get the power, but it woz well up to the job.

I'd be inclined to agree.

granted the parts that are there do look in good condition from the pics, but there's nothing there that is really worth a lot aside from the plenum - which at the end of the day can be easily welded up.

I also paid £50 for everything bar the dizzy module and a downpipe - with a fooked turbo.

The real money in these kits is with the TURBO AND MANIFOLD (well designed manifold, proper T25, fits snuggly in an XR2) - i would happily pay £200 for a kit like mine was, but KRS did me a favour as i'd been asking for him to sell me it for so long lol!
