its a series 3 petrol exhaust.
when the engine was in the daihatsu, i drove it and at about 2000 revs
you felt a very noticable boost ( turbo)
now ive got it in the series coupled up to the series exhaust and took
it for a spin.
nothing, no noticeable boost as before. the engine was took out, sat
for 6 days the lifted and put in, i havent alterd anything.
before i rip the exhaust off, which took me 3/4 of a day to fabricate,
can some one explain to me the technicalities of why ive lost my
why would altering the exhaust affect the turbo?
