well everyone, the turbo build has begun for myself. after extensive research and planning, i think we can build a kit that will be a great competitor in the future in terms of reliabilty, longevity, and of course huge power! we will be building a single based turbo setup, which will be tucked up right after the headers. it will have an external wastegate as well. from there it will be piping all the way to the front mount intercooler, where the charge air is cooled and then returned up through the same path a cold air intake would take, passed the bov, the maf, and to the throttle body. there will also be a 4 bolt downpipe made to bolt up to the factory exhaust system, as of now with out the cat. soon we might decide to add a high flow cat for emissions purposes, but for the sake of power, we will be using no cat, as well as a custom exhaust all the way back for no backpressure. be aware that we will be manufacturing this kit and duplicating it for mass production. however, we will not start that until our kit is finished, tuned and dynoed. Tuning, that will be a surprise. we'll let you know when the tuning has finished before we release the specs on that. but pictures of our progess will pop up here and there on this thread. the first pictures should be coming soon, perhaps this weekend, perhaps into next week. i'm not going to be a liar, so i'm not gonna tell you exactly when everything is available and promise things without bcking it up. but i'll give you as much as i have at that point in time. hope everyone is ready for this, and this isn't a bunch of crap either, so honestly there should be a reason for excitement. because this kit will make it to the market. also for assurance, anyone in the chicagoland area...... when the build is finished, probably within two weeks of tweaking and such, people who live in chicago could come by and check it out. i'm not sure if tuning will be finisehd in two weeks, but if you care to come see the setup, your more than welcome to check it out. ask questions, i'll be checking every now and then.
