ooohhhh, you mean the turbo is supposed to hook up to THAT part?

Then what's the boost gauge going to hook up to?

I hope nobody **** on MY coat.

Might be better off flipping that IC upside down from how you have it now and using two 90* couplers right off that inlet/outlet to hook those pipes up.

Well I was intending on just doing the hot side "over-the-top" because the AC dryer is in the way of doing the same for the cold-side. When i feel like gettin dirty again I'll check out that possibility tho

Ah, makes sense now. I think somepeople bend that dryer out of the way, no idea how easy or possible that is in your situation though.

nope unfortunatly havent had time. I did think of one thing though and anybody correct me if I'm wrong: In order to do a proper MAF emulation via the MAP sensor, at first I'm gonna have to boost the car with the MAF hooked up (recirculated BOV too) and drive the snot out of it in every sort of condition imagineable (uphill, downhill, slow, fast, city, highway) to get the data I'll need. At which point, I can plug those datalogged values in for the MAF map. In addition, i'll need to make some educated guesses on the areas outside my proposed boost limit and fill those in (just in case I get a boost spike, etc).

Then I can go MAP and atmospheric BOV.

I've pretty much decided my car isnt leaving the garage until a turbo is strapped to it unless my other car takes a dump or something.

Yeah got a little carried away. Probably could have done it with a 90 and a single pie cut but you can never have just 1 slice. :gay:

Did some more work on the hot-pipe, still gotta make a few more cuts/welds for it.

The cold pipe is now going into the engine bay, so it's 1/2 done.

Did the dual feed fuel rail.

Installed injectors

Got oil return done

removed all stock exhaust.

So my list of things to do is shortening:
1. get some fittings to do the feed line
2. Figure out where the turbo is gonna go and finish the manifold
3. Get a GTX PCV valve
4. Make downpipe and exhaust
5. Make Intake
6. Finish hot and cold pipes.
7. Tune.

You have them backwards, hotside is from the turbo, coldside is from the throttle body. It looks like functional DIY good stuff. I envy your shop. Things would be so much nicer to just be able to have a floor jack instead of a scissor POS for example. Let alone a welder, chop saw, and enough room to string my **** from hell to high water.

hahahah goddamnit. I knew that i'm just retarded. Yeah I looove having a garage and room to work. My wife has been a trooper and has been parking her car outside for the past 5 weeks so I'd have room to work. The red MIG is technically my brothers but i'm borrowing indefinitely.

The chop-saw I got for $65 at an estate sale. The floorjack was like $30 at wal-mart.

My first evar turbo install was done behind a muffler shop over 2 weeks in the freezing *** cold.

Second turbo install was done at a friend's apartment complex parking space. Third was done at my previous apartment's parking space which was for some reason half sand and mud. I've done a few friends' turbo kits in their apartment parking spaces.

Fourth and now fifth are done in my garage. Before the garage the only power tools I owned was a corded drill and a dremel.

I borrow my roommates cordless drill, use my dremel, otherwise a scissor jack, ramps, and a set of metric wrenches get me through the day. I'm fortunate to have a sloped paved parking spot. No dirt and clay for me.
