Small BUICK V6 Spooling a GIGANTIC 91mm Turbo

Early launch tuneup tests after the discovery of the n/m dt als, and before incorporating the later to be discovered afterburner augmentation. A 224cid Stage One BUICK V6 on alcohol using port Nitrous oxide/methanol injection to spool a GARGANTUOUS Borg Warner AirWerks S510-91mm turbocharger.

Turbo Nitrous/Methanol Anti-lag System with Afterburner Augmentation
A new breakthrough discovery that further increases the affect of the newly discovered Nitrous/Methanol Anti-lag System in a drastic way. The afterburner augmentation was set at a low test setting for this particular video. This test was performed with the transbrake engaged. If I had kept my foot in it, who knows when the rpm and Boost would have stopped climbing. A drag anti-lag system that gives smooth, consistent performance and won't damage the engine, turbocharger or Exhaust system. This is going to change turbocharging forever. Update: Aug. 15th, 2010: Latest testing of this new system has resulted in over 6200 rpm and 220 kPa MAP, and still climbing, after only 2 seconds on the system. This is with a: 224 cid V6 3200 stall torque converter Airwerks S510/91mm turbocharger. This is a turbocharger that scares even large V8s! Simply amazing. Some exciting test-n-tunes coming up.

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."





Part 25: Turbo Manifold Fabrication - My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration
Episode 25 of my '76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo restoration is another long one, covering in its entirety the fabrication of the turbocharger manifold. Suddenly the engine bay started to look a little cramped when I began to position the GT3076R, so it took some plumbing to build the required manifold. Constructed out of 1.5" SCH40 304 stainless steel pipe, it was fully TIG welded with an argon back purge. Yes, this is another long episode because I wanted to show the manifold fabrication process in glorious detail so that this video would be a useful resource for anyone wanting to build a custom turbo manifold. So as I say, grab your favourite adult beverage, sit back, and enjoy. Included in this episode: fabricating a 13B Exhaust flange, fabbing a merge collector, positioning a turbo in the engine bay, measuring, cutting and fitting stainless pipe and els, tacking in position, setting up a back purge, final welding, port matching, custom heat shields. A huge thank you to ATP turbo ( http://www.atpturbo.com ) for helping out with some of the parts used in this episode.





DRW / Buick V6 Alky v3.2 20L video test
My first in-car video. Preliminary tuneup with a new combination. First video since the change to the Borg Warner Airwerks S510/91mm turbo. Still chipping away at the initial spooling problem. Slowly, but surely making progress, though. Have you had your daily trip down the track yet? Kick back and get out your National Dragster or favorite go fast parts catalog. You'll be sitting in the staging lanes for a little bit. Shortcuts: go to 6:30 minutes, or 7:02 minutes. Barona Drag Strip!

The Ultimate Turbo Anti-lag System
A close up encounter with a new turbocharger anti-lag system that will soon change the face of turbo drag racing forever. A 224cid Buick V6 spooling a monster Borg Warner Airwerks S510/91mm turbo. These tests were performed with the afterburner set at a low initial setting. The full potential and limits of the afterburner feature are yet to be explored. This system is very capable of pushing the 3200 rpm stall speed (no Nitrous, zero Boost) of this torque converter to over 6200 rpm stall speed in 2 seconds, and in the same time generating over 220 kPa manifold pressure. Impressive only if you fully understand the demanding spooling requirements of the Airwerks S510 turbocharger. Pro light launch tests with the newly enhanced Nitrous/Methanol ALS coming up next. Update: Latest performance of the car, 2/12/11, 5.57 @ 126 mph in the 1/8 mile. 1.27 60'. The ALS activated for only 1.7 seconds, and shut down before launching the car from the starting line. In the comments section I have made entries that give detailed descriptions of how this system works and basics on how to set it up. This system is far from optimized. Hopefully others will play with this system and make further impressive advances with it. Warning: For Advanced Tuners Only! Update: There was a substantial leak discovered in a tee fitting in a MAP signal line that, at the time of this video, fed both the fuel pressure regulator and the Boost gauge. Trying to judge the Boost level with the fuel pressure and Boost gauges in this video would be inaccurate. The Boost level that was recorded by the ECM during these tests was in the range of 14 psi. The Boost gauge in this video (upper left gauge) is showing only 6 or 7 psi Boost due to the signal line leak.

Discovery of the Nitrous / Methanol Drag Turbo Anti Lag System
After fighting with the installation of a larger turbo (B/W Airwerks S510/91mm), trying to find a way to quickly spool this monsterous sucker with an automatic transmission and a tight torque converter (in this paricular test, a 2,800 rpm torque converter stall speed), we finally stumbled across a very interesting tuning discovery. We've always used Nitrous to help quickly spool whatever turbo was on the car, but this is something different. This is more than just simply injecting Nitrous. This video shows the point where we had become aware that we had discovered a new type of turbo ALS (anti lag system) that we ended up developing further to become the Nitrous/Methanol Drag turbo Anti Lag System with Afterburner Augmentation. Probably the most significant advancement of drag turbo anti lag technology in the past decade, not to mention the advancement of the use of Nitrous with methyl alcohol (methanol) fuel. Our spool assist valve was not used in these tests. Through special engine configuration and tuning settings, oxygen is chemically passed to the Exhaust system without the need of having to cut the ignition to any of the cylinders, thereby providing a simple, ULTRA smooth and quiet turbocharger anti lag, or quick spooling system. This turns out to be even more effective than just using Nitrous injection in the more traditional manner to spool the turbo. This allows a small engine using a Nitrous/methanol mix to spool a large efficient turbo with a turbine side that will provide the much coveted crossover affect, opening the door to more radical turbo camshaft designs. Nitrous/methanol mixes have come to be known to provide sub standard hp levels for a given jet size rating. Particularly when large shot sizes are being used. This system recovers all of that lost rating in a very beneficial manner. This system does not use the common pop and bang als method so often seen in turbo drag racing today. It is much easier on the engine, Exhaust system, and turbocharger. This new turbo anti lag system was accomplished in spite of the fact that we are using a distributorless wastespark ignition system. Or, maybe because of it? I expect only the most adroit tuner to truly grasp the concept and significance of this new system. Warning: This type of turbocharger drag anti lag system is for the most skillful tuners only.
