Yes, the smaller the restrictor the more boost ot will take to open the wastegate. So more boost will build up.

You can hammer on the restrictor once you have taken it out, but only SLIGHTLY. This will reduce the internal diameter of the restrictor. But be gentle, a small difference makes a big difference in boost. Monitor the boost level while doing this or you could fùck up the car. You can go up to 1,3 with OEM ECU. But dont exceed 1,25 or you will get fuel cuts when weather is colder

Do you know the diameter of ralliart restrictor? http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle > So I can change my restrictor...
Thank you

Dove sei in Italia?[/QUOTE]

Oh...bene! http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/Happy.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| middle > Ho visto il tuo profilo, sei di Monaco. Si sono italiano. Ho appena controllato la T che sta a pochi cm dalla wastegate. E' difficilissima da levare. Un mio amico ha tolto un restrittore da un'altra parte. Seguendo il tubo della wastegate a monte si trova un cilindretto con un'entrata ed un'uscita. L'entrata proviene dal collettore d'aspirazione mentre l'uscita va alla wastegate. All'uscita c'è un restrittore e lui l'ha levato. Pare che abbia in overboost un picco maggiore....chissà se è vero!
Grazie, Giammarco

For a reliable daily driven car, based ion what HH6 and Evoboy and all the others here in the most helpful of forums have advised me:

1.) full exhaust upgrade to 3 inches (downpipe, de-cat, midsection piping, muffler)
2.) intake upgrade with cold-air box, crucial!
3.) front and rear strut-tower bars
4.) better brakes/brake pads/ss brake lines
5.) upgraded shocks / suspension / bushings

and the most crucial, to make a proper synthesis of everything that is there, A DAMN BETTER DRIVER!!!!

Non parlo tanto bene l'italiano allora continuamo in ingliese ok?

So you found the restrictor and your friend took it out?? Or did I get that wrong? Put it back in there!! If you get fuel cuts, you reduced the diameter too much! Try to open it a little bit with a little screw so the boost goes down a little. You should monitor the boost with a boost gauge or a Blitz Dual Turbo timer if you do not have a turbo timer yet.

Take care

No. The restrictor that he removed, is a little cylinder that you can find in the pipe of wastegate, not near to wastegate (this is what we are talking about) but near to right suspension. In that place there are two pipes that enter in a big cylinder. The small restrictor is in the lower space. The other pipe (upper) go to induction manifold.
He said that in overboost the engine has more boost. [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/embarassed1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >
Do you know anything about it?
Thank

Yes, I know. People on this forum call it the grommet. It is some small plastic thing you have to take out, gives you more boost. I thought you had already done that, that's why I didnt mention it. I am not sure if it's good for overboost or sustained, but you have to remove it. Your friend is a good friend.

YES, it is! This cylinder is in plastic. Now I want to make a new restrictor, just a little bit smaller.
I noticed that the restrictor (near to wastegate) has a way to be positioned, if I reverse it?
Thank you Claudius!
PS: Grommet

So you forget to mention Wallace. Where is he located under the bonnethttp://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/wink1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >?

You won't believe it but I've got a pair of Wallace and amp;Grommet socks[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >. Was a present from my landlady during my stage in the UK.

Cheers

Thanks for all the replies guys.

I think now in light of comments made, I will not go for the Haydon and amp; Scott exhaust, but will go for the Blitz Nurspec-R instead. With this fitted will I notice the power difference ?

I dont know what happens if you reverse the restrictor, I havent tried it. Could be you get a bit more overboost, because of the way the restrictor is designed, getting gradually smaller, not the same as hitting a small hole (please take this as I mean it).

Grommet doesnt mean much as you can see from the responses above, it is mainly a way of differentiating between the restrictor near the wastegate (restrictor) and the one close to the suspension strut ( Grommet ).

Just a question, how much does it cost che RalliART Sport ECU in IRS Japan?
Are there problems with the idle stability when I turn on my A/C?
Is it true that the ECU works lean?

Thank you!
