Hi id like some advice of you guys please, for the last couple of years iv been fitting a Volvo 850 t5 into my BMW E30 3 series, and im getting pretty close now.
Iv been looking on various forums at tuning advice for the T5 and getting lots of conflicting information on things ie. maximum safe boost pressure and the dreaded con rod problems! So id just like to ask you's a couple of questions.
(Engine and ECU came from a M reg police spec....lol 850, and the turbo i belive is a 15g)
1, What is the standard ECU boost limit?
2, What is the standard maximum boost pressure?
3, What is the maximum boost pressure that the standard engine, ecu, turbo ect can be set too?
4, I will be useing a electric controlled boost controller, how should I set it i.e what pressure at low RPMs
5, What is wrong with the con rods lol, i mean what kills them? and how can i keep them in my engine?
6, What would be the next step for my engine? id like to get around 300 BHP at the wheels, but i cant afford a fordged bottom end.
