Boost and Wheels
Two questions, from what I. Have read here and on other forums in standard form the 700series 660cc 3 pot in my Gino turbo should be able to take 1bar. Also as my car is lacking the minalite wheels I have bought a set of BMW MINALITES . 15" , I hope that they fit . I had been reading up on the Pcd and offset I think they will be ok . Has anyone fitted BMW wheels?
Yes it will take 1bar of boost but the fuel cut is at 1bar, I wouldn't suggest running 1bar with out a induction kit, free flowing exhaust and a larger less restricted intercooler as the standard turbo start to drop of boost past 8.5ish bar so no point running any more boost, with the above mods and a good electronic boost controller you can use the boost controller to work it's nuts of to keep a more stable boost level but it will still drop of boost past 6000rpm.
I think the pcd is 4x110 as the same as the mira avanzatos and older daihatsu models but the centre is only 66.6mm
Hope that helps a bit
This is what I was hoping as the wheels I ha e bought are 4 x 100. The car is stock at the moment so undecided about the boost mod as I may sell when I get back yo the UK. Depends on my other projects I have in the pipeline..
