so, cheesy title, I get it.
Anyway, heres the documentation for my build thread as it slowly comes together. It came together quickly but the installation will probably be over the next months time in an attempt to get the car together for August 28th (local event with about $10K in prize money).
Everyone laughs when I tell them what size my turbo is however I bought it for $50 and then I mostly get nods of "**** it, why not?" Which is why I bought this setup, I was looking for a moderate boost in power from my weakazz m45 setup and when the turbo came up for sale I figured now was the time to pull the trigger. The only thing cheap (read knockoff) about the build is the turbo, Everything else is pretty quality as I only like doing it right once.
Anyway, enough backstory here's what's happened so far.
This is being replaced:
T04E ( .57 trim .48 compressor/.64 turbine a/r)
Tial 38mm wastegate
1.6L M-tuned shorty manifold w/external gate
quickslvr's megasquirt with boost controller/IAT sensor (to run map)/ and a ford tps
LC-1 wideband controller+305cc injectors
boring boost gauge
460cc injectors as 305's wont be enough
full 3" exhaust (vband?) driver side exit with a special sumthin sumthin.
I plan to patch the hole on the pax side to make the drivers exit look oem just for something different instead of just cutting the bumper up.
I think thats it I plan to have it tuned at the shop by our dyno guy for cheap/free and then I'll be the snot out of it. I have a spare motor, which I'm cleaning up the head currently to swap on, then I'll do a full build on that after the car is all sorted and such.
