It's particularly bad in 1st gear when pulling from a stop. Feels like the pinion angle is off. I'll grab a dial indicator and let it boogie.

Such a nicely kept 242, love the things you've done to it.

Run the power for the pump right off the alternator stud

I like everything that is happening with this, I am particularly fond of the small Supertrap on the WG dump.

The wheels look awesome, and I am jelly of the headliner insulation, I don't know why I didn't do that when it was easy.

What is the scoop on the alt? I need to look into some upgrade options....

The alternator is cool. You flip the tensioner, grind off the thicc part of the tensioner ear, grind the case, add some bushings, put on a secret sauce pulley, longer belt, better wires, and presto!

Well if THAT'S all.....




Yeah, that's kinda the same scenario I was getting with the retubed driveline and that wasn't even on a T5 swap.

That is indeed what it is!

The only other thing I imagine it being is the play on the trans countershaft bearing. It's the one thing I did not set when I refreshed my T5.

That wouldn't really be a low rumble though, and it would do it in neutral as well, as long as the clutch is out.

ATP Turbo sells T3/4 housings with the mount for the external gate already welded to the housing.

T25 flanges only. T3 ones are really expensive. Cutting a hole and welding on a flange is $60.

True true. There are dudes on the sloppy mechanics saying putting the wastegate off of the exhaust housing hurts turbo efficiency. Probably a bunch of internet bull****. It does make for a nice slick looking wastegate install.

Probably bull****. This turbo is larger than my GTX, with journal bearings and a cast compressor wheel. Spools as fast or faster. Got datalogs to prove it too.

PS, took the car out at 70-75 on the freeway. What I thought was wind noise all these years was tire roar. Interior is a lot quieter.

Driveline still makes a racket. Once that's fixed this car should be very civil at freeway speeds. I'm excited to road trip it once that's done and A/C is installed.

I hope you solve the driveline issue so I can mimic your setup in the future. My Getragged 79 242 turbo was so annoying with all the noises it made and I am hoping to avoid that this time with the T5 setup.

Agreed. Ok want to know a resolution. Awesome machine you have created. I have followed for along time, but never commented. Sweet. Must say though, if you are correcting colors of wheel centers, you have won. Hahahaha
