So i thought some of you guys might like to see the turbo build im doing on my jeep. Now i know its not a miata but still its turbo.
So here is the life story that goes along with this jeep.....
So i got my 95 YJ back in 07 from a customer when happen to blow his motor as he was pulling in my repair shop. After telling the customer it was the motor and that he would need a new one he handed me the title for the jeep. So i got a new motor for it along with a new trans, clutch, brakes, and tires. So a year and a half later i meet my now fiancee and one night as she was driving the jeep she lost control of it and landed it into the woods off the highway.
Once i got the jeep back to my shop i saw the real damage to it and say it is totaled. Here are pics the day i got it back to my shop.
So this past summer i found a deal on a yj that had a bad frame but a body that was useable for $700 bucks.
I didnt take any pics of the body swap to the old frame but this is what it looked like 5 days after i finished everything.
This is when i had just a 3" body lift and no suspension lift on 33s.
Here are the most recent pics of the new bed liner paint job and 4" suspension lift giving me a total of 7".
Now for the turbo stuff
So here is my spare motor on a stand with what i have so far with piping and what not.
Here is a quick drawing to show what im doing for the turbo inlet.
The spare motor that is going to be getting torn down once i finish the piping and brackets for the turbo. I plan on getting forged connecting rods and pistons along with 505 performance race head for the 2.5l. Once that motor is finished i will be seeing what it takes to blow the stock 2.5l up on the dyno.
