One hell of a turbo

Ok guys this might be mine in a mere 27 minuts.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=190002076994
this turbo will easily hit 10 psi with very little tuning involved
projections could be 100+hp boosted with little work done to the engine to raise compression again.

Re: One hell of a turbo

Good luck! These engines love boost, respond well to it. If it stays together, it'll fly!

You'll need an MSD Boost Timing Master so detonation doesn't own you (I'll show my pistons on request), and more fuel, as the stock 14# injectors won't hang. An adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator and a bigger pump will be needed, because my stock pump was played out at 6 psi. There are no FPRs available, I took a Kirban unit for a Mustang & adapted the fuel rail to fit.

Worth. Every. Minute.

Re: One hell of a turbo

its stil comiing round the mountain to me, there were sum utter compliocations with the sellers paypal rofl, she thats right she left the payment unclaimed for 3 days rofl. anyhow i already been tracinkg it it will b ehere early next week. the good part its its got the flange on the turbo and the bov scrue tunable "i belive rofl" onboard the turbo. i mean fab aint the hard part, geting home with the pistions still in the engine after beating the **** out of it is. anyhow this motors old and needs to blow anyhow. problem is i think shes gona take more of a beating than i think she is, who knows maybe i can really hit 290hp now lol. in any event its gona be fun.
as for the fuel ive got my turbine pump maxed out at over 30psi and and broke a autozone carb fuel pressure tester, with just resistors i can get the car so rich it wont even start. steady black smoke stains everywhare. i think i can tune it to handle 5-7 psi before it goes lean. then i might need a few 19 lb injectors, well see. be a nice way to test out my resistor theory.
