1969 Opel Gt 1.9 Automatic
Where did you buy the turbo from?The turbo came in today.
As expected, I had to re-clock the center section in order to orient the oil feed and drain lines correctly. When I re-clocked the compressor side of the turbo, surprisingly the wastegate actuator was pretty much just where it needed to be without binding. I may have to adjust the preload tension on the actuator, but it all JUST fits in there.
It did dawn on me that this setup won’t fit the early 1971-1973 engine mount brackets, only the 1974-1975 brackets. The waste gate actuator is nestled inside the engine mount practically!
Anyway, first impressions are that for $236 (delivered), this turbo doesn’t look too bad! I was expecting far more flawed castings and impeller wheels, but it didn’t look half bad. Time will tell however. View attachment 437054 View attachment 437055 View attachment 437056 View attachment 437057 View attachment 437058 View attachment 437059
The engine looks very nice!
Also how much hp do you think it will make?
