Default 13 club edition 2.5/ Fab9 build

Just finished my 3rd turbo build. Started with a 2013 Club PRHT Edition In pearl white.

Sheís got Ohlins coil--overs, 17Ē RFP1s with Michelin Pilot Super Sports In 245 width.

The stereo system stem is a Kenwood Excelon DVD with JL Audio components in the doors and parcel shelf, 900/5 amp and a kicker sub. The car is connected via Maestro RR which retains steering wheel controls and allows the Kenwood to display gauges. In the far left vent is the SGC-1 gauge displaying afr and boost.

The motor is a 30k 2.5 from a late model Fusion. Turbo kit is from Fab9- Gleason manifold, EFR 6758, custom prototype intake manifold, 3Ē Stainless exhaust all the way back. All V-band. LARGE Treadstone intercooler, CSF Aluminum radiator, ACT clutch and flywheel, dynotronics tuning via ECUTEK cable, large injectors, fuel pump, yada yada.

The battery has been relocated to the trunk. CarbonMiata floor mats should be here any day.

Now for some pics:

Itís also got a Vibrant catch can attached to a Radium Engineering Crankcase vent plate.
Has the IC coated on one side so it didnít look like braces.
Gauges on radio...
Ohlins
All new audio wires and cables run

The 2.5's on boost usually see 350whp on a dynojet on 15psi and 93 pump gas. Carnut will likely get a nice bump from that intake manifold, and I wager he may try pushing more than 15 pounds into it...

'Sup Nut! Glad to see you over here on the MT side

Thanks guys.

Yeah, between 350 and 400. Had the EBC set to 4% duty cycle.... Joe wanted a couple full throttle runs and I hit 23psi (whoops). Turned the duty cycle to 0% and now seem to be peaking at 18ish. Itís super super quick.

1-2-3 happens quick. Just hang on and shift. In 4th- 6th it feels like a Tesla s if youíve ever had the pleasure. Iíll get it on a dyno after joe works his magic.

I assume you are on the stock 4.1 rear? Are you considering going with a 3.7 or something else?

If you're hitting 18psi on spring pressure (EBC = 0% duty, assuming no gain and also solenoid engagement at 0psi) then you may want to check the WG preload and back it out a few millimeters.

Preload is really easy to get to. It's a (IIRC) 9mm nut, you'll need two box-end wrenches to make the adjustment. Jacking the car up onto stands will take longer than the adjustment itself. You could probably just put it off until your next oil change.

well.... I was shipped the wrong exhaust housing. It was for an external wastegate, not an internal one. Not fab9ís fault- he was billed for the right one and the wrong one was drop shipped. I didnít know as Iíd never used an EFR before and was just told that the wastegate was in there.

Hooked up the ebc to the port on the bov (looks almost identical to the wastegate in innovateís instructions). So Iím not sure how I didnít really see a big boost spike unless the way the bov was plumbed created some air leakage. Thank god for that! I had zero boost control!

pullednthe housing tonight- little pita but not horrible. Bryan is sending the correct version. If you get this one, donít install it!
Waiting for the proper housing...
