That car would look so badass with a rollbar.

Nice big pipes over the radiator...do those hit the hood? I guess not...??

I like the setup, but man put a heatsink or something on your wideband. It's way too close to the turbo.

Unfortunately it does. I'm going to chop up the inside of the hood which should give me 1 1/2 inch clearance.

I'm actually going to redo the downpipe in the next month. Will add a blanket and wrap.. should be enough.

nice setup.......can you take a closeup of your charge pipe routing? specially ahead of the radiator? Those pipes look like 2.5" OD. How about posting a list of parts you used?

He made the inlet you can see pics of it in the thread. The outlet looks like the one from ATPturbo.

Just to clarify what I meant. I wasn't referring to your controller. The sensor should be 36" away from turbine outlet to keep heat from damaging it. When you redo the downpipe, weld a bung like 6" before the exit flange, anywhere before the cat if you have one.

36 inches????? Are you reffering to the wideband or o2 sensor? O2 sensors are usually safe anything after 8 inches.. and widebands.. well get em as close as possible.

I'm referring to the wideband. Excessive heat will damage the sensor.
From AEM's instruction manual:

Quote:
A weld-in M18 X 1.5 boss is supplied for sensor installation. Mount the O2 sensor in the
exhaust system at least 18 inches downstream from the exhaust port. If you anticipate
high EGT's (over 800C), run a turbocharger, run at high RPM for extended periods of
time or plan on running leaded race fuel then you must mount the sensor at least 36
inches or more downstream of the exhaust port as all of these can cause the sensor to
overheat.
On turbocharged engines the UEGO sensor must be installed after the
turbo charger, if not, the pressure differential will greatly affect the accuracy of
the unit. For accurate readings, the sensor must be mounted before catalytic
converters and/or auxiliary air pumps. To prevent collection of liquids between the
sensor housing and sensor element during the cold start phase, the installation angle
should be inclined at least 10 from horizontal with the electrical connection upwards,
see below. (Figure 8)
From Innovative's manual, they also refer to the high heat damaging them, though they give no measurement:


Of course it's purely your decision where you mount the sensor, if you can afford frequent $60+ replacement sensors then it's no big deal.

The way I see it.. the closer it is the more accurate. And its not going to get fucked up that fast. It'll probably take a year (3000-4000 miles minimum until it gets messed up).


I look at all those supra's running the LC1 same bosch sensor directly onto the turbo.. and running C16. Ya it'll definately get messed up eventually but I'd much rather have a fine tune and pay $60 every other year than pay AAA to tow my car. Plus I doubt it'll get fucked up while in my possession ( plan to sell the car after I track it).
