  • Part 3 - Semi professional looking... Kinda.

    I wanted to keep the flame tube from the original design for two reasons, 1) That is where it would mount up to the frame, and 2) I really couldn't be fucked making another one and doing the calcs to work out and then drill the primary, secondary and tertiary holes all over again.
    I had to get a new combustion chamber rolled up from a local fab shop as well as the reducer to feed into the turbo, which was worth the money, not only because now it looks pretty cool, still managed to reuse some of the original fire extinguisher as a collar, so it still lives on, only just.
    Then the new inlet to the combustion chamber was made from lobster back pieces of pipe to get those tight radius bends, but they look like shit due to my sub part welding, but it doesn't leak, so it can't be half bad.
    It also got a new fuel nozzle, it turns out that just a piece of copper tube with a bunch of 5mm holes was a tad too ambitious, and the new one only needing 6, 1mm holes to feed the fuel into it
    But the fact everything now seals up well and makes it start a bunch easier and smoother, and with lower exhaust temps which will help that nasty eBay turbo live a little bit longer.

    A lot of effort for a piece to collect dust in the garage.... #DIY #turbo #fire #flames #gasturbine #diygasturbine #hot #combustion #boost #welding #rookie #fabrication #homemade #weekendwarrior #253 #308 #holden #repurpose #mitsubishi #scrap #junk #weld #diyproject #turbine #engine

  • Part 2 - Electrickery and stuff ups.

    I had gotten to a bit of a hurdle, to make it all run it needs both 12v and 240v, rookie mistake but it's not going to be propelling anything, just stationary to make noise and heat.

    The 12v part of the system comprises of a jacobs ladder circuit board for ignition, which is used to run a wasted spark coil pack from a V6 commodore

    It also needs to power gauges to keep an eye on, boost, oil pressure and temperature, that's the 12v sorted.

    It runs!! Kinda, was a real pain in the arse to get going using a leaf blower to get the air flowing thru the combustion chamber while I pump in LPG to fuel it. It was very crude, would fire up with a massive bang that would scare the shit out of me, and the only control of fuel was a ball valve, not exactly precision tuning. Not only that the rear wheel of the turbo was getting stupid hot and it would throw decent flame out the nozzle.

    After close inspection found the fire extinguisher combustion chamber wasn't sealing properly and was creating issues, instead of fighting it, it was time to just make a new one, this is where the DIY part went out the window.

  • Part 1 - In fear of fingers or fire.

    Always liked to tinker on pointless little projects in the garage, so a few years back when I actually had spare time, I had a crack at making a gas turbine engine from whatever I had around at the time. An old eBay turbo, fire extinguisher, countless bits of scrap from my steel bins, a V6 commodore coil pack and a Jacobs ladder circuit board.

    It was "agricultural" to say the least, no fancy CNC machine work or lathes here, a plasma cutter, five inch grinder, and a DC scratch start TIG.

    Oil system, knocked up a sheet metal oil tank, it's probably way more oil than I need, but I guess less chance of it getting hot that way. I begrudgingly had to spend money for the oil lines and the pump setup, the cheapest POS drill I could find will do the job of spinning a Mitsubishi power steering pump to feed oil to the turbo.
