Stripped charger down for bearing replacement and seals etc found on Google a lot of folk saying main shaft has 3 bearings.mines has only 2 with a spring loaded coupler anyone confirm if this is original.cheersffc0471f9bf2610ce556184b656fe4d9.jpgbee8b9a85b76b8499a37e232f2daabbd.jpg

Bearings removed were bog standard no angular contact ones.looks like they use the spring loaded coupler for any floating in bearings under boost think I'll keep the coupler get 2 new angular contact bearings and do a rebuild new seals new o rings and fresh oil.

Sounds like a plan, 

what width is the spring loaded coupler, if it's about 10mm then its been used instead of the 3rd bearing.

This next picture is depth of housing where one bearing and coupler sits

It will push on the spring coupler on assembly it looks like it is there to stop the strain on the bearings under force from boost pushing side on.

oh sweet, enough to get your running at least, would recommend getting a custom map off Vince though for optimal gains :)

Yeah I was thinking of going that route once I get running see how things look then get it mapped.i presume it's a case of pulling chip out to map as I don't think you can write to chip via diagnostic port on obd1?

The UM chips are "protected" usually so you wont be able to make any modifications, I will show you what mine looked like when I opened the ECU, it was like a sandwich !

 

Vince generally uses a emulator to map on the fly, and then writes the EPROM and installs at the end of the mapping session.

Anyone know if you can get the idler pulley for tensioning the belt in metal rather than the plastic/reinforced fibreglass type it's the multi rib one I think it's the same as original tensioner

Just noticed pulley on charger is wrong one I'd blow charger up its only a 20 tooth and that was Robert at ruf kompressor that gave me it.



What's the max these can take ? You'd probably need high speed bearing kit to go with smaller pulley
