i was wondering if i buy a turbo that is both water cooled and oil cooled . would i still have to conect the water or can i just use the oil?
a k26 is large enough to go without the coolant lines. just let the car idle for a minute before you turn off your motor. most factory turbos come with coolant lines. if you do decide to use the coolant lines, just take the coolant line that runs to the throttle body.It's a KKK K26, it's off a porsche 944
that im not sure. id like to see the size compared to a t3/t4. i do know that the 944s ranged between 2.5 to 3.0 liters. and porsche isn't known for undersizing their turbos. but then again the max they where running off of these turbos was around 250 hp @ 6,000 rpm, so rpms might take advantage of it. im very interested to find out. looks like a nice turbo.drunkinmaster1
thanks man 4 the info. so you think the sohc will have some pull with the k26 turbo?
I completly agree...Hook them up i say.The real question is why on Earth would you not want to connect the water lines???? There is really no good reason i can think of not to put in the small amount of extra effort and a few bucks for the lines to hook it up the right way.
