Buried a crank? And are you suggesting that because you have built one fast car, that this one will succeed the way you've explained?

Hmmm, no not by any means, I just think its funny that a few people are up in arms over this. I've got a few parts and I'm going to have some fun toying with building a little turbo set up. I'm no master and I don't pretend to be, I would hope that you would interpret that I come from a world where we don't buy bolt ons unless we have to. Hand build most anything and enjoy it just like most people do. English wheel for the win, right up there with all the rest.

Also my rod isn't fast , its only around five or six hundred hp so its almost quick. I don't want to have to run alch or 130 ack, but I'm like the rest out there just having fun with a little roadster. Just seems like people want to flame every one else instead of giving constructive advice?

Burying a crank, "history lesson..." back in oh, well before we could buy headers they would bury the internals because constant temp stress relieves the metals. 9 months later your crank etc. is born to a happy family : )

Dude, get this. None of this is remotely relevant to what you're attempting.

As to my credentials, I doubt any of that is relevant either. Even though my profession is about as close to cars and racing as the average car enthusiast ever gets.

Rodger Dodger ^_-

I'll run a new thread when I'm done with the manifold/turbos/bovs bolted on to my xtra head for mock up.

Still would like any input from Tim though considering hes done this successfully!

More power to you if you can pull this off. Common sense says you cant, cause I have a feeling you're actually a retarded teenager trying to act as if you've been doing this for years.

Looks like I hit a nerve? I guess you could say I've been building cars since I was a kid, so maybe around 15 or so years, you know drag racing, road racing, a little SCCA, some sport driving, maybe spending some time working on that old 9.3l 460 stroker, or that cute little tt 350z, I'd rather work on the 50 fleetline though, after all who doesn't love a mighty mouse ehh? "Turns around looks at full G-force fire suit hanging in closet..."

But seriously I'd love for you to explain to me, "in detail," how engine building has nothing to do with fabricating a little forced induction set up? Granted we are now straying from actually getting things done, gathering info, sharing ideas, and exp, to a flame/pissing contest? If it makes you feel a better go for it... I personally would you rather not waste my time

Crew, this isn't being flamed. More progress pics and less HD sticker pics will help your cause.

I tried to share my ideas, look at my posts above on using the wastegate. But you apparently know everything about turbocharging since you built a 1939 Nash from the ground up.

EDIT: Werent you the one wanting to use an exhaust cutout for the same purpose? Posted on miata.net a while ago?

Damn guys, lighten up. This guy is obviously not one of the common noobs we get here. I say give the guy some credit and time to see what he comes up with.

Wreck, some of the guys on here are super insecure and need to e-thug to make it through the day. Dont let em get you!

lol, of course that was me, however I trashed that idea based on gear drive issues + parts are available right off a supra. And your idea was bad at all, but I'm not starting with sequential, I just tossed the idea out there for only cutting off part of the exhaust flow from the secondary to play around with building boost. There would be a limit however on how much based on the pressure in the charge pipe, so on. I haven't done the math on it yet so its still, "just an idea." After I get the mani tacked up on Saturday I'll post a couple more bits up, I am going to run the twin Greddy bov + an oil cooler in line to the oil feed for the turbos. I'm waiting on the oil filter bypass adapter from summit though, should ship by the first of the month, "out of stock for the lose."

The parts I was talking about earlier for the valving are the, Exhaust Gas Control Valve, "EGCV," and the Intake Air Control Valve, "IACV." Both of these are rather easy to source and are operated by vacuum actuators. It's actually kinda simple, check out the diagram.

There are worse rockers than Harland's so don't sweat it. My twins are plumbed in parallel.
