truthfully, the only greddy parts I'll be running are the turbo, exhaust mani, and oil feed. kind of hard to still call it a "greddy kit".

I can't wait to get my car back and install my toys on it, like a wideband, O2 clamp and Greddy pressure sensor . Then with those 3 items on my 91 BRG, I should be able to properly tune my car. Thanks for the update Stephanie.

I know things can change, but are the plans for a divorced wastegate setup? 2.5" or larger or starting 2.5" and bigger after the firewall? Inquiring minds want to know.

I will look into exact sizes. But i did see the mock up on the car this morning. It is a divorced gases downpipe. Wastegate gases tube is 1.5" and the other tube I do not know yet... I'll find out and let you know.

turbo, manifold, and oil supply. If I were to do the build from scratch, I think I'd just start with a BEGi mani and a nice ball bearing T28 or T3. Final cost would be about the same.

This other pic is on the BEGi website:


Nice eh?

Also, Corky built a larger diameter intake tube. Its purpose is to speed up the transition from vac to boost. I have one coming to me for trials, so I will report back my findings.

Anyone have an idea how the intake tube will look? Will it have the same placement as the BEGI kit, right behind the headlight?

I think it's a direct replacement for the intake tube between the stock afm and turbo inlet. It is just larger diamater.

Is that a water-cooled CHRA on the Greddy turbo in the pic?

Also if the manifold was replaced will this fit the Greddies running the cast mani?

I was always under the impression that the cast version and that version manifold had the same specs as for turbo placement. It is supposed to be a direct bolt-on replacement. It sure looks a hell of a lot better though.

Its obviously a direct drop in for the cast greddy manifold since it used the same downpipe.

It better be, that would suck to buy the ETD Racing "direct" replacement manifold and not be able to bolt up your DP and pipes.
