@Wheezy depending on who manufactured your turbo, there may well have been impeller options. With Kinugawa there certainly was. From recall, I selected the "middle spec" turbine which was 11 blade (stock being 12, and 9 being the highest flowing + lightest), and "standard" 6+6 compressor.  There was also a full 12 blade billet comp impeller option for high boost applications.  Thrust bearing was about 270 degrees for all units.

With all of that, I ran the 11 blade turbine, 12cm housing, standard 12 blade comp, and the compact comp cover.  Main target was decent turbine flow efficiency, and a modest power requirement under 400rwhp.  It performed the required task, reliably.  And there was room for much more.  Boost response was satisfactory, not "awesome".  At the price point there was little to complain about.

I reckon yours will be a good thing, interested to see whether it can run to your power target.

What I really like is your choice of Emtron and some decent sensors.  Suggest you ditch that OEM CAS.  I found greatly reduced timing scatter with a NZ Wiring sensor kit, if that's any help.

Mines a genuine Trust turbo. So whatever they did back in the day.

RE: CAS, will probably go the High Octane kit.
Probably not happening before tune, perhaps that way I can keep the power down for now and get used to driving it I guess :)

Came so close to starting today.
Has fuel, but no spark.
Spun the CAS by hand, but no spark.

Coila have 12v on the multimeter.
Ran an ignition test on the ECU and the coils fire.

Noticed the battery voltage goes to 11.7v when I crank.
So, charging the battery up to be safe, but it's brand new.

Looking at ECU settings to see if there's something going on to disable the spark.

Spent the day flushing out the old fuel and putting some new E85 in it along with some fuel doctor.

Based on my digging through the logs and talking to my tuner, it looks like the emtron is designed to suit the Neo CAS.

Will double check with Emtron, but probably I just need to do a pin swap for the signal wire and trigger wire and she should be good to go.

Engine bay back together more or less.

Apparently the Pyrex Gas Lens for my Tig is turning up this week so I can finish making my new intake pipe.

 

Then it just needs the panels put back on, clutch and brakes bled and a new fuel pump for insurance and it's ready for the dyno.
