Try to find a greddy manifold/downpipe/turbo or T25 based stuff?
Ok, so I've been dicking around for a while and since I have a DD now I'd really love to just boost what I have (134k mile 1.6 in decent condition) and build my other motor later and then go for some serious power.
I'm shooting for maybe? 220ish on this motor...but it'd be nice to have a bit of room.
Right now I have:
-Brianeack PnP MS
-550cc Injectors (needing to be cleaned, and a rail to make dual feed with)
-Just picked up a 11x12x3 (CORE) IC, pipes/couplers, and a turboxs RFL bov (which...might make me want to kill myself)
-2.5" Test pipe and exhaust
-ACT XT Clutch and stuff
-Mazdacomp motor mounts
So its not like I have anything left to replace except the motor...and maybe the diff mounts :(
So the question is how decent is the greddy turbo and manifold? I'd really like to find just those two pieces for cheap, do the DIY feed line replacement, and a new drain line and some sort of downpipe...BEGi? Racing Mazda is by far the cheapest though.
-How much do you think I could find those pieces for?
-Is it worth it? Or should I just try to find a T28, Begi Manifold/Downpipe and do the same thing?
