Ok well, I know most people don't like reading threads about half built setups, so I waited until it was basically done to make my thread.
Before anyone comments on anything saying it looks like ***, I know. Most of the welds were done with flux core before I got gas and started using solid wire.
I also know that there's several things that still need cleaned up, such as head sheilding, putting the IAT sensor in the piping, and various other crap.
However, here's the basic rundown of my setup:
-Freshly rebuilt 1.6L with new piston rings and forged rods
-DIY head cleanup/small amount of porting
-Ilovetaco ebay cast iron t3 manifold
-T3/T4 chinacharger, will get specs later
-HKS RFL BOV (I know ricerish but oh well)
-Tial knockoff external WG with real tial spring in it (VTA for now)
-3" downpipe and exhaust with v-band connector and smallish magnaflow muffler
-CXracing i/c and piping kit
-Megasquirt MS I that I assembled myself
-550cc rx7 injectors
-AEM UEGO WB
I have a few things sitting waiting for me to get a weekend off to be able to install it also:
-DIY WI setup, based off of this site:
Do It Yourself Water Alcohol Methanol Injection | Before You Begin
-1.8 rear-end swap (I will be doing this before I drive the car too much)
One other thing, I know the front bumper is cracked and hideous, it will be getting changed with a stock one when the car gets repainted.
Also, I haven't been a member here for 4 years and had no turbo setups, this is my 4th setup on this car.
Pics of minor headwork (most of these are before final smoothing):
Next was the MS, which you all know what it looks like, but oh well:
Next was the exhaust and downpipe, in this picture the exhaust wasnt quite done:
Next is the somewhat haggard DP (ignore the paint):
First weld I did after I got the gas (sucky):
Wastegate hole cut in manifold and everything welded on, then wastegate dump tube made (will route into downpipe eventually):
Motor in finally:
Pictures of everything "done" and a few other random pics (this is when it gets ugly haha):
Ok I'm done finally, also, sorry about the crappy cell phone pics.
If you have any suggestion please let me know, but keep in mind I'm aware that I need heat sheilding and other odds and ends, they are on the top of my priority list.
