Sweet. Looks good.

Are you trying for 13's for $1300 or just budget hack?

08-10-13, 07:27 PM
Both, ill run my budget to 1300 on go fasts first. See what happens, then continue for circuit work
I reckon I can force a 13.9 on stock turbo, I have a wolf ecu. Ill get some rx7 injectors and run e85

so i really didnt want to follow in Cracks footpath (no offense) i wanted to take my own path and try a different setup.
BUT Crack is a champ and offered me parts for cheap, and i found my own parts cheap, so hot side will be Cracks manifold, my own sourced Rx7s5 turbo, and his injectors.
no clearly his car was seup for as light as possible and drag numbers only, where im hoping to dip into 13.9s in street spec and do some circut work later
so depending on how driveable i can get it with this sized rear turbo, it may just stay on there!

now i picked up a pair of turbos tonight, a S4 and a S5 $30 for both! S5 is a little sloppy
now the S4 has a corner of the flange different, and also a smaller scroll section, i was hoping i could use this as it looks like it would spool faster, but ive been told there may be more to it then that. plus it appears only 1 scroll is ported to the wastegate flap.
the s5 has ports from both scrolls to the wastegate flap.
anyway. some pics of shit

14-10-13, 10:56 PM
lol, technically you had a GD w/ a S5 RX7 turbo long before I did, so I was in fact copying off you

15-10-13, 06:13 PM
Thus is indeed true lol

15-10-13, 06:16 PM
Still need rx7 injectors?
I can give you 3.5 550cc s5 injectors for cheaps

Wes Mantooth
15-10-13, 06:29 PM

15-10-13, 07:24 PM

This is cool. Ill be keeping an eye out here.

10-11-13, 06:07 PM
slow going, no time really, mounted the cooler and am doing cooler pipes this week,
will be using 2 inch intercooler piping on this side, from the standard turbo, will go 2.5 when i upgrade turbo
this side will be 3 inch, way oversized for stock turbo, i dont really care, easier than reducing it down off the cooler
plus i have heaps of 3 inch bends to use

10-11-13, 06:09 PM
and after searching non stop for blinkers, i bought some off a dude with headlights for 99c after he refused my $50 offer for the blinkers only

14-11-13, 05:45 PM
What happened to the indicators?

14-11-13, 06:30 PM
Fucks me, came that way.

24-11-13, 08:34 AM
removed the fuse box and all the bracketry, and relocated here

24-11-13, 03:00 PM
Fuck yes. Much anticipated.

24-11-13, 10:53 PM
Got side is done also

Andy Skidmore
28-11-13, 02:39 PM
more bush mechanics required, it all looks a bit sanitised currently

07-12-13, 06:35 PM
I have access to one of these with a BHG, is it of any interest to you? Auto though.

07-12-13, 07:53 PM
Umm not really, I have a complete spare also, minus head
Cheers though :)
Lol Andy. Dodgy is coming. Tek screw boost cut defender, and 3:1 rising rate reg for fueling over 12 psi

07-12-13, 07:55 PM
Silicone was $18.99 each delivered.
And spare car was free so, doing well in the coin department so far. Plus I've decided not to run the wolf ecu . I'll get a 13.9 my way here.

I'm DJ!
07-12-13, 08:16 PM
Keep at it
