lnf setup update with track times
Saturday, May 19, 2012 10:32 PM
so after having the saab settup and being unhappy with wastegate creep i decided to try the lnf setup on my dd... besides slight fitment issues with the trans hitting to t stat housing everything fits and works much much better... its a 100%overall improvement in power spool and peak boost at redline... im using a trifecta tune which i would never ever recomend trifecta to tune any vehicle due to poor service an response time.. it takes weeks to get email responses and everytime you need something fast they are on vacation or buying houses or abducted by aliens.... point is with a real tune i would see much more results and be able to make more boost.... my crappy base tune which ive had 3 updates in the last 3 months and still isnt anywhere near right i flash 10.0 under 8 psi.... but i decided after a few decent worthy cars got beat i would finnally try and get the car to the track... on 6-8 psi (due to change in temperature) the car went from a13.9@104 on the first run to a 13.5@105 on the third on street tires and a crappy tune with a 2.3 60 foot since i didnt feel the need to kill the clutch and trans.... so basically it comes down to thi!!!!s its as cheap if not cheaper than the saab and will outperform it any day... no spikes or wastgate creep you can make a downpipe for about 70 bucks in your own yard 3" and you can also upgrade to the lnf 20G from hahn that bolts directly onto the stock lnf manifold and uses all the same lines and piping( according to hahns website) so for all the budget turbo builders looking for info this is the settup to go with.... the lnf turbo efficiency on a 2.2 is 15 psi (compressor map) so there is much more power to be had with proper tuning.... i look to be going to hpt very soon and breaking the car well into the 12's on street tires.....

did you end up using the 90 degree elbow? or did you make a new downpipe from the the turbo down?

im using the 90 and it fits perfect with no a/c and no head, but it is getting a little tricky since i reinstalled the a/c system. more so with the heater.
Post some pics up of your setup.

Be careful on stock tires...

Now if only I could get it to hook....

wheel hop does not just happen because of stock tires. Bad: strut mounts, motor mounts, control arm bushings etc.. can cause it.

i used the stock lnf 02 housing and a zzp exhaust flange... i had wheel hop my last run and i let out of it and still ran13.8@105 but it had gotten alot colder so i believe that woulda been my fastest... anyways i was on continental contisports 17's so it was a def improvement... and ive had my gears shoot out of the trans on my ln2 many many times and once on my eco so i was trying to prevent that... no more burnouts or launches there just no need to do that anymore.... ill get my video uploaded on youtube soon

that and the lil difference in displacement, i finally got all my pieces to make a real downpipe from the turbo back. THe lnf o2 housing has to dang close to my steering rack and was rubbing my a/c lines. SO i cut me out a flange and got the 3" pipe to make the full downpipe, then to the exhaust shop to get a full 3" back. and weld in the new bungs for the o2 sensors and wideband and egt sensor.

then to tune the 2.4 computer

haha sorry i kinda forgot that j body existed for a while.. i never figured out how to post pics on a forum.. i havent drove the car in prob 2 months its needs a trans idk what happened i went into 3rd and it went in but grinds real bad still moves and drives till you give it gas then it grinds like its a big rig haha.. so new trans next week and ill be back at the track i hope for one more try at it... my plans over the winter is to put rods and pistons in it and a clutch and maybee hit 20 psi next spring.... im sure thats gonna push the lnf turbo on a 2.2 but doesnt hurt to try....it just sucks i gotta pull the engine out since the shift linkage bracket hit the o2 housing on the install snowman said his fit fine but mine hit really badly i have the bracket ground down into the threads actually... as for pics my settup was a quick and cheap one since i didnt have a good job back then and the saab turbo was just to inefficient for my driving lol..... my buddy offered drag radials if i ever wanted to try them so i might try them with 10 psi or so and see what happens...all in all i love that turbo setup my only complaint is the high compression making it spool im 5th gear so when passing or cruising you cant get to into the pedal but obviously thats the downfall of having a small turbo with high compression and bigger displacement.... im still not sure how to run a real intake tho theres no where to plumb it... any pics snowman? suggestions?
