Congrats man, I just picked up a TurboBay BWS and waiting to install as well! As for tips, make sure you break in the turbo lol so many people get on it right away=smoking/short life turbo.
very nice. My new S257sx-e showed up this week. I haven't installed it yet. Of course the week i buy something for the car, something else goes wrong with it...Update
Agp s256sx installed and I got agp's break in of a hundred miles on it before I got into any boost at all and WOW just WOW!!! I only got a 150 miles on it so far. What a difference in car completely. Fully spooled by 3600 rpm. Haven't did much boosting at all yet but what I have done total smiles all around.
I'm trying to get about 500 miles on it before any real wot pulls. Loving the external waste gate!!! AGP FTW!!! Install was a easy with agp's kit. Amazing quality very well made. I will make another update in the coming weeks. But so far so glad I chose this route.
I'm still driving it, but something is up. I was headed to work the other morning and all of a sudden i started having really high hanging idle or super low lumpy idle. Its throwing 2 very strange codes P1187 & P1854 which even if i clear them they come back immediately. It also seems like it isnt switching between closed and open loop when i accellerate as the AFRs stay lean (upper 14's) even if i try to boost. I havent really had a chance to look things over very in-depth. But i want to get it figured out before i swap the turbo.Definitely keep me updated on the s257sx-e curious in your opinion coming from the 256. Hope nothing to major happened. To your ride. And also best of luck getting it going again. Seems to be the way of the srt-4 get it going good. Buy something new for it. Then bam 3 to 6 other things happen. Lol gotta love it.
Yes was already thinking the same on a blanket for it. Thanks for the advice. Which intake did u go with?Looks nice. I’d recommend some sort of heat shield around your exhaust housing. I run a cheap generic turbo blanket and it works great.
I also had to order a new intake for mine since this s257 has a 3 inch inlet vs the 4 inch of my s256.
Until now I’ve always run with a k&n filter straight on the turbo. I’m piecing together my own 3-4inch carbon fiber intake. I’ll post pictures when it’s done.Yes was already thinking the same on a blanket for it. Thanks for the advice. Which intake did u go with?
