Woo, inches.

On another note, time to get my head around the T3 water-cooling lines..... This engine is going in a (what is/was) a K-jet 240, so it wont have radiator plugs for the T3's water cooled lines. Oh I love plumbing....

Stock Volvo hard lines work plug and play with a Volvo cartridge (), with the Ford cartridge you need to use banjo bolts in m18x1.5. I can't find the pics of how I did it, just drilled the holes in the Volvo line banjo's from 16 to 18 mm with a stepped drill and used M18 bano bolts..
For the rest, just 940 cooling hoses.

Doesn't sound too bad - I'll be going all braided high temperature hoses for the oil feed anyway so would make sense to use 940 ones.



I'll most likely be using a Ford cartridge, saves on having to buy a Volvo T3, then a Cossie .48 housing, blades, compressor wheels and compressor housing....

I believe America put the first man on the moon using Imperial measurement, so hopefully for those that were taught Imperial, not a lot ;) I know I think and imagine in Imperial. A lot can and has gone wrong when I mentally shift to metric mode

Sort of

"With respect to units, the LGC was eclectic. Inside the computer we used metric units, at least in the case of powered-flight navigation and guidance. At the operational level NASA, and especially the astronauts, preferred English units. This meant that before being displayed, altitude and altitude-rate (for example) were calculated from the metric state vector maintained by navigation, and then were converted to feet and ft/sec. It would have felt weird to speak of spacecraft altitude in meters, and both thrust and mass were commonly expressed in pounds. Because part of the point of this paper is to show how things were called in this era of spaceflight, I shall usually express quantities in the units that it would have felt natural to use at the time." Source - http://www.doneyles.com/LM/Tales.html

Even NASA engages in mixed measurement protocols

Keep up the good work Turbobricks!

My car was original fitted with a Garrett T25. For the Cossie T3 I organized coolant hoses like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Turbo-Water-...CL73zQ&vxp=mtr
I remember that I needed a lot of copper washers and also removed some material from a screw at the backplate of the compressor side not to clash. Should have made it like JW240 described above with
drilling out the original banjo´s.
If you want a more power with a little more lag you can take a T34.48 turbo (Sierra hot side, Escort compressor side... see passionford). Don´t know if the compressor side interferes with the exhaust manifold.

That does look good - might see if I can make it a bit safer, barbed fittings hmmm! Does the T3 not have an access point on the compressor housing to take a line to the wastegate actuator? Curious to see your T-piece in there.

Yes, it has a fitting at the compressor housing. I installed a 3 port boost controller. The blue hose is used to bring the vented air back into the system.

Tell me more about these 3-port BC's.... Never come across them myself. I was planning on just putting a simple ball-and-spring one in myself.

A bleed valve is a 3 port boost controller.

1.6 FWD Escort turbo, all the Cossies, Saab turbo all years and some others use this:



Round white thing on top the intercooler..



The heart of the "mid-range overboost" strategy....
boost limited to XX boost util certain rpm (say 4000) and then ECU sends signal to electromagnet in the Amal valve, steel ball lifts up and the manifold pressure goes out the other hole---which model to model have different reducer bushings pushed in, which delays or restricts the pressure the actuatore sees and that means -...as they say in TB talk: MOAR BEWST.

Made way out West in a wide spot in the road called Åmål
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%85m%C3%A5l

Right down the road from Trollhättan, where the other funner-er Swedish car was traditionally made

Amal valve replaced is crazy boost applications with this to very very accurately meter mainifold pressure to actuator:

Sounds interesting I must say - might be too much for a daily driver though...! Thanks all for the info though. I picked up an A cam this afternoon with perfect lobes which I think will match the Cossie T3 (when I find one) quite well.

I just bought another one for a reasonable price from RS Classics.

What a Cossie T3? There's tonnes of them about. I was offered a TB0384 rebuilt with 360 thrust bearing for £250 I think. Fair price?

I will when the money comes around to fetch one - RS Cosworth Breakers Ltd are only 25 miles from me and they always have either a Sierra 4x4 or 2WD in, so I can always ask Gary if he has one available.

Another question; porting the .48 Cossie housing? Would be interesting to see if it could be done. I'm sure someone has...

Mine was ported to hell, and it developed a crack. This round, I'm going to leave it alone (minus the V-Band off of the compressor)

Jesus no wonder you need a new hotside. Think I'll be a bit more conservative with the porting, if I get round to it. I don't think it really needs it anyway, but I have seen one or two put Stage III turbine wheels in .48 Cossie hotsides. 3" downpipe aid as well, or stick with the Cossie 2.5"?
