I didn't think you had the turbo installed yet.... remember your turbo blew and hit the car behind you.... :P

 

will be a a sweet ride once you put the turbo and injectors in, and it is back on the road!!!!

Trying to get some injectors now so I can tune the car, then:

 

- 1.5 way Kaaz diff

- Oil cooler

- Brake upgrade

- Surge tank

- Cams

- Forge the engine

- Paint the car

 

That's whats on the list for now. Would ideally like to engineer the car, but we shall see how costly that one turns out to be....

at this stage just putting this turbo in:

 

ATR28

 

Also getting Nismo 740cc injectors, then getting it tuned again. It should make 200rwkw on 14 pounds.

The turbo is in, and the car is back on the road! Just need to run it in with the 7psi actuator, then after 1000ks change it to a 14psi actuator and get the car tuned! Can't wait to see what power she makes.

 

Big thanks to Kroupa for putting the car together - you are awesome!

 

So here are some pics of the standard turbo compared to the new one:

Very Nice. Just make sure the rubber pipe from turbo to the actuator doesn't touch the manifold. Also if you can get a Z32 AFM it will be great, the size of stock AFM on the intake is too restrictive.

 

Yeah I will be changing that to a braided line soon.

 

I have a PFC D-jetro so not actually running an AFM (even though its plugged in).

 

Turbo was a very good fit though, and i like the dose its making - it hasn't even been tuned yet and the car sounds good lol.

because that line is so close to the manifold i would also recommend insulating it

u can buy a insulating rubber sleeve from pirtek which just slips over the hose and it works very well at reflexing heat

 

i run all braided lines on my turbo's and ive also insulated them just for that extra protection

i really like what youve done with it so far vessi :) makes me want to buy a 180

 

the insulated braided lines are a great idea too. for the cost and effort involved its much better to be safe than sorry

 

keep up the good mods as youre turning it into quite the weapon :)

 

plus one from plus plus :thumbsup:
