New turbo project started
« on: October 04, 2012, 07:25:15 PM »
I'm not your normal guy, I just don't/can't leave stuff alone, a while back I built a nice little 2.0L for my 72, it turned out great, runs good and looks killer...
 

 
but good enough, sometimes isn't enough...  here's a picture of my future intake, I already bent the alum for the plenum, the tubing (1.75 od 1.5 id) and will be 4 velocity stacks tomorrow, the flange was cut off a stock intake and machined flat, and the alum plate 3/8"x 4" wide, will end up being the bottom of the plenum
 

 
the next picture, is a box of schedule 10 304 stainless steel tubing, elbows, all 1.55" ID and 4"x3/8" for the head flange, I already made the merge collector, I bought a T25 flange and gasket off ebay,
 

 
It'll all be controlled by Electromotive Tec GT setup just like my 71 turbo car...  I have a nice used set of 5.5" Crower billet rods and Vonolia pistons I'm going to use if I can find a block that will bore 0.020 over...
The pressure will be handled by a EFR 6258 turbo, (I think, I haven't purchased it yet) this will be a true street car, with small runners, small turbo, a A4LD tranny (Overdrive) and 3.73 gears.....

Made some progress,
Tomorrow I'll angle cut the velocity stacks to 20 degrees to match the head, and make them all equal in length, more to come.

 

 Getting closer, next I'll cut down the plate and the get the plenum welded on...

Well it's up and running with the EFI setup, I still have to add another vacuum port in the intake for the valve cover breather and make a better Cold air intake setup.
Next will be installing the A4LD, custom convertor and 8.8 rear, have yet desider if I am going to run the 3.73's that are in the 8.8 or install the 4.56's I have. the 4.56's would wake up the bottom end and still run down the highway at the same rpm as it does right now with the C-4

Now that's is a thing of beauty, for sure.. I think I see room, for a nice turbo with a custom header in there as well. 8)
