Talking I like turbos

So I finally got my kit finished today. Best 700 dollars I ever spent.

back before I started lurking around here I picked up what I thougtht was a greddy kit. Well its not a greddy kit, I have no idea wtf it is, but its some kind of td04 and it makes my car go fast

will post pics soon but right now its really hot and I dont feel like it.

um all signs point to greddy kit. sure its not a modified one? Downpipe and intercooler upgrades are very common so look at the turbo and exhaust manifold. What makes you think its not a greddy?

How are you controlling fuel and/or ignition? Wideband, or are you flying blind?

Ya, Mongo like turbos too. But Mongo thinks Zarniwoop make a stupid thread. Mongo hate Zarniwoop and don't care about it being too hot or that Zarniwoop didn't feel like taking any pictures. Mongo like pictures.

Mongo think temporary bannage good punishment.

yeah i know, must have pics. I already took most of them but I am moving and I cant find my card reader, or any damned usb cables. I will get my dad to hlp me out tonight probably.

I dont think Its a greddy because its a 3 bolt flange and I thought greddy was 4?

I really just wanted to share my giddyness with y'all and I will satisfy your bloodlust for pics soon


I promise



really

ok I know these pictures kindof suck, but I did not take them I will try to post some better pics of the turbo and some other things soon. Like I said before I am pretty sure greddy is 4 bolt? wtf is this rusty 3 bolt cast iron thing that I have. well at least it fits

here is most of what the kit came with.
http://www.photolava.com/view/6ba4.html

I got it for 500 with turbo, mani, charge piping, intake piping (k&n was way to big so did not use)

had to buy a vortech 12:1, got a free dsm, set my timing and thats about it so far. With all the bells/whistles/vac lines/drill bits/drils/food for friends/gas in that damned 94 land rover i was driving, it came out to around 700 give or take a few bucks.

I have never seen that manifold or flange type, ever. Must be something before my time or maybe it's the kit off the early GTX.

here is the shitty blurry pic of the turbo.

I know I should just not bother to post the pic if its that bad but oh well, its something.

http://www.photolava.com/view/6bc6.html

it says tdo4 under that plate and next to it in a little circle it says 2g. Oh, and there is a bunch of funky pipe welded to it(not by me because the quality is way too good and I dont weld aluminum)

ya thats sortof a funky flange, might it be a greddy or some other manifold that has had a new flange welded on? I think subaru turbos might have that inlet flange on them ... damn ... now that I think about it I think that might be it. I have an uppipe in the shed im gonna go look at it.
