You've ridden in it and didn't know it was a SE, not a Spec V?iczer200sx said:i've ridden in jim wolfe's disco potato spec v. runs strong, mash the throttle and response is instantaneous, hardly any lag, kinda like a v8 but of course better.
So they have a Disco Potato Spec V or just a boosted Spec V? I know they built a Spec, but I was under the understanding that the SE was the Disco Potato because of the paint job.david said:Actually they built 2 turbo b15s. One was the SE they built way back when and the other was a spec v they built.
Both are nice cars.
um, of course i know the difference. the one i rode in was red, broken motor mount, stock suspension, fuel light on, fully built bottom end, and hauled ass. =)Mr Sentra said:You've ridden in it and didn't know it was a SE, not a Spec V?
I guess I called the B15 SE that JWT had the DP and didn't consider the Spec V the DP, but in fact it has the DP turbo in it. Sorry about that.iczer200sx said:um, of course i know the difference. the one i rode in was red, broken motor mount, stock suspension, fuel light on, fully built bottom end, and hauled ass. =)
thanks man, i've been looking around for turbos and i haven't heard any reviews about this turbo, what sucks is i just order a 3in downpipediscopotato03 said:Yes , I got the first one in Australia . This turbo is really good , very free flowing on the exhaust side . With this turbo forget how to spell lag because if your engine is tuned properly and the exhaust adequate the results are excellent . Only two things I found were a problem .
(1) The increase in exhaust noise esp with 3" pipe - if there was a next time I would use 2.5" , because lets face it for 280 whp all 3" tube does for you is act as a megaphone !
(2) The 3" air inlet is also overkill . I found that my charge temperatures went up noticably off boost and at lite load compared to the much older Nissan ball bearing turbo (R32 RB20) . I put this down to heat radiated into the larger back plate and compressor cover , good heat shielding should fix this .
For an alternative turbo to the std DET this turbo would be very hard to beat and would be my no1 choise . Have fun A.
