Re: 4.0l el turbo setups

Hi there Gli 5 Speed, do a search on 'EF/EL Turbo' on these forums, there are many discussions on successful setups, tip and tricks. I hope this helps :)

Running 10's is a big ask, you will need alot of work, but it will certainly be worth it in the end.

From memory, Air Power Systems ,CAPA, Jim Mock Motorsport or Redcliffe Dyno would be the best place to start.

Good Luck & keep us updated on your progress :)

Re: 4.0l el turbo setups

Speak to GM DESTROYA and he could probably organise the whols setup for you. There are a lot of changes to be made in the driveline to be able to handle that power but he know's all the tricks.

Re: 4.0l el turbo setups

I really doubt you'll get into the 10's for $15,000...

Re: 4.0l el turbo setups

as far as the driveline is concerned i would propably run a tuff c4 with a big stallie and a 9"

i would say 25-30lb boost would be needed to run a 10

but what do i know i have no experiance with it.

you will also need to strengthen the chassis

Re: 4.0l el turbo setups

15k is not enough for 10's dude first just the turbo is about 2.500$, then 2k for an intercooler, then about 3-4k for a tricked FMX or toploader (add a triple plate clutch), 3k for a programable ECU and you are not left with much for a stronger diff and all the little shits needed like exhaust manifold, exhaust system inc a big cat, then the engine :) the crank should be ok, rods as well just get better bolts, pistons ummm .... ARIA's are ok but they clap too much, now spend about 3k on the head and you say bye bye to about 20K.

if you want 10's with under 30k i think a HR32 GTR (20.000$ with new 15year rule) then 10k on mods will give you a mid 10 sec missile .... and even that is pushing it.

I hope you understand how much power/torque you need to move 1.5 tones of metal over the 400m line :)

Re: 4.0l el turbo setups

GM DESTROYA had a 750hp rated engine with all the fruit for about 4500 and specs for a diff to handle similar for about 2500. He's been playing around with 32psi at the mo so try him first and he might even have half the stuff there.

I think that engine is sold! Troutman off the forums is buying it I think?
