Which Forge? 6cm^2 on B235R

I've decided that I'm going to try one of the Forge WG actuators.

Which one's correct for a Viggen running a hybrid 19T running (clocked 9000 6cm^2 turbine housing)? Right now I'm running the stock B235R actuator with a bend in the shaft.

Do you have the compressor housing from a 9k too? Or just the exhaust housing? If you have the 9k compressor housing, then the straight 9-3 TD04 actuator will be too long. I've been tweaking a standard 9-3 TD04 actuator to work on a 9k compressor housing (did the bend and everything).

Since it's adjustable, the 900 might be a better fit but not sure. I can hold up my T25 actuator and eyeball it tomorrow afternoon if you want.

hmm... I'd think you'd want the one from a 9k aero? It should have the correct bend in it to accommodate the 6cm housing and such

my 19t with the 7 cm housing uses a straight shaft. but the wg actuater bracket is adjustable

edit:the link you posted for the one from the 900 is for a t25. I don't think you will have a very easy time trying to bolt it to the compressor housing of your turbo.

this is what the actuator on my aftermarket turbo looks like..

Thanks y'all. It's good I didn't get the T25 version lol.

I'm running the standard B235R 15T center section and cold side (machined internally for the 19T of course), and just the 9000 6cm hot side. To make that work I bent the original B235R actuator and it's been working great.

Hmm.

I talked with Steve tonight over text and he's going to dig some old turbos out of storage and take a look. I think the question that I really need answered is what's the difference between the bracket for the B235R vs. the B234R actuators. I betcha I need the bent shaft of the B234R version with the bracket from the B235R version, lol nothing's easy.

Turbojohnny, where did you get that 7cm housing, and do you know if it'll work on the standard 15T center section? I'm running a big clip on the turbine wheel and the 6cm, but going to 7 or 8 would be totally great.

You could always get ahold of Dave Kennedy. He knows this stuff better than anyone and always loves to chat turbos.

I actually found it on eBay. It is a china part, but I've been running the setup for about a month so far, over 1k miles on it without any trouble. And yes it will work on a regular 15t center section.

There is about ~inch difference in needed between the 9k cold side and the 9-3/9-5. The 9k actuator arm is shorter. For those that wanted to know.

I don't think you could use a 9k compressor housing even if you had it just because the intake pipe wouldn't fit. The Viggen intake is clamped while the 9k compressor slips on with a coupler.

It works, just a very tight fit.. that is how mine is.
