New turbo project started

(1/3) > >>

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.....

One thing for sure. When Walt puts his mind to it hang on!!! Looking forward to following this build for sure.
