ok , ive done a fair bit of searching for info on the VJ11 here on feoa an so far it seems to be a choice of preference .

I recently acquired a VJ11 with the MX6 inj , FMIC from a Mercedes SLK
i have the BP26 GTX mani ( from yoda ) ,RX7 Vaf , ill be running stock EGT ecu ( w/FMU for now )

Some have said the VJ 11 is a waste of time for a BP is this fact or myth?

i am able to acquire a Vj 16 for a hybrid upgrade later on.

tips tricks an idea's , opinions would be awesome .

i cant wait to join the dark side :twisted:

so a VJ 11/vj16 hybrid would be a good idea i suppose to make up for where it drops off?

i figured a stock VJ11 would be a good choice to learn to crawl with since the vj20 is hard to get up here.

this is good anyone else ?

i dont know why everyone shits all over the VJ11, it's essentially the same damn turbo as the VJ20. the compressor and turbine wheels are the SAME (interchangeable even). the only real difference is a slightly larger exhaust housing a/r on the VJ11 which theoretically should result in better high rpm power, the trade off being a marginally slower spool.

hmm nice discovery :(


elongate the turbo side holes? shouldn't hurt it any . continue the holes to the ends so its more like a slot instaed of a hole ( maybe make/use some triangle corers )

or
make a adapter plate


VJ-11 pattern vs VJ-20


1 bolt holding VJ-11 to GTX mani for picture purposes ( aww i cant wait for that scene to change of an over view in the engine bay 8) )

Forget that. VJ-11 are dirt cheap, just get a new VJ-20 gasket from CS and elongate the VJ-11 holds.

This has been done in the past a long time ago Elongating the holes or just cut off all the corners or cut from the corner to the center of the hole.

wow i never knew the vj-11 was slightly bigger than the vj-16..gues it makes sense as it was on the 2.2 and the 16 was on the 1.8. guess even people who have been on here for years learn something new everyday.

lol you confused your self vtec-this lol the vj-11 an vj-20 are simalar with the excpetion of the vj-11 having a slightly bigger hot side but hte flanges are different but locations of everything else is identical the vj-16 is a compressor upgrade option for the vj-11 an for the vj-20 if im not mistaken.
