Ok ive only quickly glanced at the page, but i can see a discrepency.

Its says this at the top of the page
Quote:
Displacement: 3.0L (2962 cc)
Bore x stroke: 86 x 85 mm
Compression ration: 7.8:1
Power: 150kW @ 5200 RPM
Torque 296Nm @ 3600 RPM
and then this further down

Quote:
From the factory it had 150kW of power @ 5600 RPM and 296Nm of torque @ 3200 RPM.
Other than that all good.

Ohh yeah the second statement is correct too, @5600rpm.

looks good, and as others have said it's looks very usefull and deserves a link from the main page, it might even stop some of the more annoying "how to convert" threads..

Thanks for the feedback guys

I know how hard it was to find information on converting my car, so I thought why not create a website, with a central location on all the info needed..

RB30-POWER thanks for finding that fault I will update it with the correct information...

Hope all u ppl that are wanting to convert your car find this site handy...

Great site!!! Well done!
Hey in your news and update page u read somewhere a n/a throttle body is bigger than a turbo 1. This is not true, the throttle bodies are identical.
It's not nessassary to u/g the t/b until u port the head and/or fit a bigger cam!
Cheers!

WHen you did your conversion did you use the turbo oil pump??

If not how long as your engine been going with the n/a pump, as a freind of mine who didnt change the pump has now got a knock in the bottom end. Im just trying to figure out if its from not having the pump or just being a worn bottom end.

From the large amount of information shown on his web site, he may have told us if he did use it, then again i could be wrong. But if the oil pump goes, the whole engine goes doesnt it? so perhaps the knock isnt caused from the na oil pump, then again im probably wrong.

My question is, I know the torque must be higher after the conversion, but is there 150kw as with the standard vlt? Tah
