Default ArtieParty's Turbo Build

Well I guess I should finally start my turbo build thread here. As some of you may know, I am having TurboTim / Shore Motorsports build me the components for my turbo kit. Tim is making me the manifold, downpipe, and full 3" exhaust including metalcore cat and muffler. Tim also ordered the turbo and all the lines I need for it. The turbo is a GT2560. Here's a list of the other things that I sourced already and are waiting to go on:

* Ebay 18x12x3 (core) intercooler
* 2.5" stainless intercooler piping
* FM Blow-off valve (thanks Yoram!)
* RX-7 460cc injectors recently cleaned by Injector Rehab
* Vishnu dual feed fuel rail
* Toyota Coil-on-plugs (COPs)
* Prosport green/white boost/vacuum gauge
* Protege valve cover
* ACT HD clutch

I guess I should mention that my car is a 95 (R package for those of you who care). We recently swapped in a 99 head and deleted the a/c system. I am running a 94/95 Megasquirt (MAF deleted) and have a AEM UEGO wideband O2 sensor.

Here's the pic's I just got from the shop:

Update-

Installed the 460s, the Vishnu rail, and the COPS before I gave it to Tim. Tim had the car for a couple days and finished up everything he was doing for me. I had the car towed to a friends house and am ordering the couple extra parts I need now that the turbo itself is in. Tim and the shop say its his best exhaust to date. ( and I agree). Ill try to get pics of the final product soon. All I have are pics of the manifold and turbo in the car. And the turbo is actually clocked a different way then in the pics. its pointing more towards the fender now and a little up.

I hope you like it and everything went ok at the store. Remember to tighten all the nuts and bolts on the turbo (inlet and downpipe) after you have a few heat cycles in there. They will be loose. Just make them "tight" using a regular wrench and one hand, do not go apeshit on them with a long wrench/ratchet or bounching your weight onto the wrench.

Let me know if you have any questions or need any help with the intercooler plumbing.

What happened to your stock exhaust? Do I need to drop that off at your house?

Yes, EVERYTHING is for sale for the right price!!

Everything went smooth at the store. I picked up the exhaust and took it home in the 96. AAA came in about 10 min after i called them to pick up the car.

If he put all his weight into something on the car, I would be more worried about him blowing the tires and bending the wheels.
