After getting sick of driving an insanely slow car I decided to bring some boost into my life. My original plan was to buy a JRSC but after doing some research I decided to go with a snail.
I spent a lot of time working on eclipses and talons since I used to own one and I have always been a fan of the 16g turbo. The only problem with that is td05 manifold/downpipe availability for the NB. I found an OBX downpipe for the NA which fits the 16g outlet and I have been building my kit around that. Heres the list.
OBX manifold (ebay) for "94-97" I had to go with this one because I need a top mount setup for the downpipe to work.
OBX "NA" downpipe. Hopefully this will fit.
I have two sets of Injectors. 7MGE 315cc and some blue 330cc injectors a friend gave me. The blue ones will probably end up sitting in my garage forever.
Here's my flange that I have to weld to the manifold.
I have two j pipes that come off the turbo with different angles just in case.
Mishimoto 24x11x3 intercooler. (measurements may be wrong)
Egay intercooler kit
RB midpipe and Greddy TI-c that I ordered before I knew I was going boost.
Cheapo boost gauge with map sensor.
Right now the plan is to weld the flange to the manifold so I can get an Idea of how much room I'm working with. Once I have an Idea of that, I will measure and order some oil lines. When the lines come in I am going to order a oil pressure gauge and sensor. From there I can tee the feed line, drill and tap the return and cap both while I save money for a tune. For Management I'm using a DIY from Braineack.
My goal is to have the car boosted by March. I still need to get my hands on a clutch and some spark plugs too. I'm hoping to get 8psi to start, maybe more if the setup can handle it.
If anyone has any advice or anything, please chime in. I'm open to criticism.
