    WH1C/HX40 Hybrid

    I'm looking to hear about people's results with performance with a similar turbo

    WH1C/HX40 Hybrid

    I understand that, but the difference for me is between getting the center housing machined, and also not having a backup turbo in case anything happens to the one I'm trying to mod

    Thanks dude. I'm gonna continue gathering hypotheses to test this weekend - which is when I'll have time to work on it

    WH1C/HX40 Hybrid

    So, I've been toying with the idea of an intercooled hybrid turbo setup for the winter. I know most people will go with an actual HX35/HX40 hybrid, but I've been looking into doing a WH1C/HX40 hybrid since I can pick up the turbo itself for fairly cheap, and get a 60mm wheel and housing from...

    I didn't think to bench test the new starter first, cons of being soaked and wanting to get the job done with I guess. I'm really not trying to take it out again, since it was a bear to do the first time. As for load testing the batteries, that's on my to-do list for this weekend

    I thought the starter had a new solenoid with it? But shit can come bad from the factory I guess. I'll be sure to check that

    Yes, and it still would just click

    Everything that got disconnected got reconnected to it's happy home, so I'm not sure about that.

    It clicks, which is good because before I changed the starter out, it wasn't even doing that. On the matter of fuses, all of them are good. I'll check the voltage at the terminals as well. And no, I haven't tried rotating the engine by hand yet.

    So, about a week and a half ago, my starter decided to die. I ordered a brand new AC Declo one, and put it in yesterday. After charging the batteries AND boosting them with another vehicle, we still couldn't get her to turn over. All of my connections are tight, and all of my fuses are good, and...

    Loss of Boost/Harder Starting - Possibly related?

    Well I tried charging it, but i realized i was hearing the fuel pump priming the system, and not the starter solenoids clicking, so I think I've found the starting issue

    Loss of Boost/Harder Starting - Possibly related?

    Well I went to start it today after it sat for a few days, and after the glow plug cycle, she just pooped out and clicked. I think I've got a voltage drain somewhere, since I put in some new lights, so time to go check the wiring there....

    Looks like it might be time to try my hand at making a data logging cable, if the stock actuator doesn't work out. We'll see what happens with that. I'm not going to be driving it enough until this weekend to get any results anyways

    Don't have access to that for awhile, I'll try the regular holset actuator, and see what that will net for results.
