G werks Dont do G40?
« on: November 11, 2010, 03:24:29 pm »
Looking at getting the charger rebuilt,
But want it stage 5 porting,
I emailed G werks because ive heard bad reports about Jabba
They emailed me back saying they only do G60's?

Who else can i use?

Cheers

I can service it myself just after the extra porting
Basically gwerks version of the R1?

Gwerks Website
60/G40 G-lader Full Service Porting/Polishing (Stage 5)
Additional porting work is undertaken to increase the air flow through the unit to maximise performance.
£560 Inc VAT.

It says they do it aha

Do PPP Port?

Cheers

just the porting?  as its intensive, for not a lot of coin.  I've spent about 10-12 hours on a charger before!  I hate the job!

you might struggle - but dan barnes had his lader just ported at g-werks... try ringing?

or try jabba?  their porting is not the most extreme but by far the neatest i've seen

Cool, I would prefer to service myself, learn in the process.
Also I always think I'm being done over, because you don't know they actually replaced everything unless you open it

Just the porting don't have the tools and don't trust myself aha

I will give them both a phone call tomorrow.

Thanks
Rich

Just do it yourself dude. Take it slowly and carefully and good results can be achieved. Be sure to use good quality parts though. This R1, stage 5, full blend crap is seriously overpriced as far as i'm concerned, especially considering the miniture gains.

Yes I was going to ask you for a full rebuild kit, I Asked jabba and they said they can port it to R1 spec for 3 hours labour which is £165 including VAT

I don't have the dremmels, and equipment needed to port, although instead of paying 165, I could but a dremmel kit and do it myself it would be OK if i had something to copy.

I'm based in Rugby, got a mate in sheffield uni though so could come in handy cheers.

Its fairly self explanatory once you've cracked the charger open as to what amount of porting and shaping you can do to it.  I think i spent about 6months constantly refining my first charger (kept splitting it open) from its initial jabba R1 in 2001 to a twin inlet and alot of inspiration and ideas fine tuning it taken from my then just completed aerodynamics paper.  Got 100% for it though... the paper that is! :)
