But it worked.....almost,,,,I assumed the Audi used the same turbo, Does it not? Mechanical specs matched closely.
It uses a K04 but that info sheet lists three different "Versions" of it and they all are a little different than the one on the LNF.
Also, this is the turbo map being thrown around the Cobalt SS forum (Which is also an LNF powered car in 2009) and it looks very different from the turbo maps in that link.
Which is why I ask the question. I don't know enough about turbo maps to make the call and hope someone else who knows more may offer some insight. Like I said in my first post, I'm still pretty new to this whole turbo thing too. I have some stuff down, but some stuff I'm still learning. Turbo maps are the latter.
What I DO know about turbo maps is you want to keep your boost output within the Turbo's efficiency range. That range is represented on the map by the complete "circles" in the mid area of the map.
I look at that map and think of it like a topography map where each line represents an elevation on a topographical map (and may be why they call it a map...who knows). You see how some lines are not complete and tend to run off the scale while there are two in the center which you can see are complete and make a continuous circle. These "elevations" are your Turbo's operating range.
I also know there is what is called a surge line and you want to stay on the "circle side" of that surge line. (If I remember correctly, the surge line is the very first line on the left of the plot area of the turbo's operating range and is darker in color than the rest of the lines...but it was a while ago I read this stuff so I'm not certain of this.)
Now there is a formula for figuring out...based on engine displacement and boost levels with possibly a few other variables...where in that map your current boost level falls. As a matter of fact, I'm going to need to figure out where my boost level falls within this map based on my engine displacement.
That said though, which map is right and are the maps different because the Audi uses smaller displacement engines (1.6 and 1.8L) than the LNF (2.0) or is there another reason? I thought a turbo map was for that turbo and the engine displacement only came into play when figuring out where on the map your current setup falls.
But like I said, I'm still new to this and am trying to figure this out as we go along in this thread too.
