Manifold looks awesome Tim, very nice. Looks like insane spool and transient response are both in your near future



I'm curious how the turbo will tuck underneath without touching the mixing manifold or anything else (not sure if you have ps/ac still)

Thanks Vlad, I'm super keen for some insane response!

It sits high enough to clear the mixing manifold, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work with power steering. I've still got A/C.

I'll get some pics soon, the manifold will be sent off to be coated though.

Cheers

Manifold and dump pipe are off getting ceramic coated. Charge pipes and intake are done.

Here is the water pump inlet after modification, as well as the heater hard line after adding a -6 fitting for coolant return:



The mangled blue fitting was welded up to make a temporary cap and the stock MSM coolant return barb has also been welded up.

Next up is oil and coolant lines!

Cheers

Wow....

Any particular reason for the step down on the exhaust?

Just to mate up to my existing exhaust, only the first 1/3 of that dump pipe is new.

That manifold is truly gorgeous. It appears we are on the route for a similar outcome. Continue the progress!

Not sure Ian, I'm kind of ignorant when it comes to these coatings. I gave it to these guys and told them it was used for sprints so I wanted something durable:

Competition Coatings QLD

They seem to have a good reputation around here, time will tell I guess. A friend of mine used them for his high powered Supra and it seemed to hold up fine.

Cheers

Manifold looks balleur, hopefully it stands up to track abuse.

Very nice build

Every time I see a nice compact manifold like this is makes me worried about how far my EFR is hanging off the side of the block.

Good show though, I can't wait to see how this thing spools

It's getting pretty close now!

Jason at Automotive Plus is making up the turbo lines for me. Left to right is coolant feed (-6), oil feed (-4), coolant return (-6) and oil return (-10):



Banjo fittings on block showing coolant and oil feeds (top to bottom):



Modified heater hard line to move coolant return (-6):



I like the fire sleeve he has used over the braid. Hopefully this is the right formula for maintenance free lines!

Cheers

Game on:



As you can see, there's tidying up to do. I'm just running the thing for a week or so to make sure nothing leaks and it behaves itself. Then I'll get the charge pipes powder coated and fix up the vac line and EGT probes.

I have a Koyo Hyper V radiator coming any day now, so hopefully I can throw that in while the pipes are off getting done.

First impressions of this turbo - DAT RESPONSE! I have no preload at all on the gate, solenoid isn't plugged in and I'm running the low boost actuator. If I breathe on the throttle it sounds like a jet turbine and goes straight to 100kPa (absolute), then with a tiny bit more throttle it will hit 150kPa effortlessly.

This thing is going to be an absolute beast when it is dialled in with EBC!

Cheers

Haven't had much time to work on the car with other stuff going on, but I have been driving it to work the last few days.

This car is just ridiculous! It is still running the crazy conservative ignition map from my MSM setup but with extra fuelling and no EBC, and it spins the wheels at any hint of throttle. Even 4th gear is really sketchy. I can't even imagine what a 6758 is like but I do not want to go there!

It should be awesome on the track with some semis though!
