Default Hi from England

Hi all, been lurking for a while and finally decided to sign up to get some answers to the few question i've got left before I go turbo.

Going to be using MS PNP, with LC-1 WB. T25g from a Nissan Silvia, Begi Manifold, Nissan Pulsar intercooler, Supra 320cc injectors.

I'm going to get a custom downpipe made up and use the Racing Beat/HKS exhaust that I've got for now.

Here's some pics of the car as it stands now.

Hope you're not going to be boosting too high with the 320cc injectors, or have plans for an AFPR.

Those 320cc injectors are going to limit you to about 7-8psi... which will be good for about 170-180whp w/that turbo. Upgrade to 460 or 550cc and push 14psi... make 230whp.

I have been thinking about going for the 550s because to be honest that's the only thing that's going to limit me. Oh and i've not got a proper turbo exhaust yet either.

Thing is the longer this project runs the more power i want. When I started out i was only looking for 170-180 at the fly, now i want 220-230 really. Need to get it done soon, before i decide i want 300bhp and need to build an engine lol.

Nearly there now, a friend is sorting out some intercooler pipework for me, and then i just need a man clutch and off we go. Plus i need to sort out the money situation as there's bound to be things i've forgotten.

Yeah got Megasquirt PNP, i'm by no means pro, have had a play with it while the car's been NA so I know how to get it somewhere close. But i'm going to take it and get it properly mapped once it's all done. I do 70 miles a day and I need to know it's right.

That's my trip to work mate. Sucks but houses are so expensive I can't afford that either. The way the price of petrol is going tho, I think it's going to be cheaper to buy a house lol.
