AGP Wastegate Actuator Instructions - The Be-All End-All - SRT Forums - SRT4, SRT6, SRT8, SRT10 & Dodge Forum
If you plan on running a new waste gate without a tune to incorporate it into the ECU the link above provide instructions and answers to many questions on this.
Here is some info on our turbo.
Stealth 316 - Turbo Upgrade Guide
Basically the TD04L-13T will flow about 385 - 400 CFM and is capable of about 256 Hp. I cannot find if this rating is for the crank or to the wheels.
Another interesting note is, In fairness the stock turbo does not live long if pushed this hard, at 18 -20 psi everyday.
These two sites were a great read and gave me a somber out look about the power potential of the stock car. I guess upgrading sooner than later is in my plans.
So all those people that are pushing 20+ PSI were all gonna feel it soon and figure out how long our stock turbos will last.
Hard Figures Update
I did the math for the 22 Lbs/Min flow rate for the PA re-flash and got 318.073 CFM using the 18 - 20 PSI PA Re-Flash at 6000 RPM with a Temperature constant of 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
So in a matter of estimate the PA re-flash is making the turbo flow 318 - 330 CFM which is on the edge of its efficiency but still within acceptable limits.
Post from another site that helped me convert:
I apologize to those who already know this stuff, but for me it was a great learning experience, so I wanted to share. First, here are the formulas, where P is absolute pressure and T is temperature in degrees Rankine (Fahrenheit + 460):
To get pounds of air (lbs/min) when you already know the CFM:
P(psia) x V(cu.ft./min) x 29
(10.73 x T(deg R))
To get the volume of air (CFM) when you already know the lbs/min:
n(lbs/min) x 10.73 x T(deg R)
(29 x P(psia))
Someone had asked a question on converting a 36 lbs/min flow rate to CFM and after doing the calculations, the numbers I arrived at didn't look right. I e-mailed the author of the page, John Estill (a very nice and helpful guy, BTW) and he set me straight:
If you are trying to convert a lb/min number from a compressor map to cfm, then you are using nontypical values, which is why the number is lower than expected. 15 psi gauge, or 15 psi boost = 29.7 psia, which is not what you have at the compressor inlet! Turbonetics maps are done assuming a standard inlet pressure of 13.949 psia (about 1.5" Hg vacuum) and 85F. At these conditions your 36 lb/min of air flow = 520 cfm.
So, in summary, when using these formulas to do calculations on lbs/min and CFM, use 13.949 for psia, and use 545 (which is 85 degrees F + 460 to get degrees Rankine, or deg R, in the formula) for the temp value. I don't know if I can answer detailed questions about this info, but I'd be happy to try. You can always e-mail John Estill about it, too-- his e-mail link is at the top of his page (the one I provided the link for above).
