    Somehow I completely forgot to mention it’s getting turbocharged…

     

    I have a tb25 off a 2.8 diesel patrol and will be running 10psi to start with.  That’s what the 044 pump is for.

    Be running a water to air intercooler. And a 3″ turbo back exhaust.

    Ordered a 2L surge tank today. Local tuner guy says I can use my stock engine mounted fuel pump to fill the surge tank and feed the 044 from that. Be more reliable as a gravity feed than trying to draw the fuel from the stock lines in tank. Should see the carby swapped over in about two weeks time.

    my mate dropped back my intake and holley carby today, after making me an adapter plate and carb hat.

    ill be painting as much of it black as i can in attempt to keep a stealth appearance in the bay, no big shiny pipes or anything obvious.

    small update

    got my wideband kit, turbo, and surge tank yesterday. its coming together pretty quick. my main holdup from here will be the time it takes for my ebay dump pipe to get here from china. this is it here for those who wanna see it,  http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/301454591099?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

     

    otherwise, heres some pics

     

     

     

    2L surge tank

     

     

    GT2871 turbo. after getting the TB25 apart, its full of carbon/diesel buildup. and stupid me, dropped it and bent fins on the exhaust turbine, so figured id just go new and upsize a little.

    Haha thanks I think, pending on how this responds to boost I may decide to upsize turbo again but for now I’ll stick with the 8psi actuator and see how she does

    things happened.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    it just fits.

     

     

     

     

    modified linkage using stock rocker welded to the holley’s one.

     

     

     

    and the best bit.

     

    it runs!

     

    todays job entails pulling the rocker off and painting it up all pretty in black wrinkle paint.

    Took it for a drive today. Much better power delivery in the low to midrange revs, drops off at 5krpm where before it would pull right to 6k but I’m ok with that for now. Lower rev power has improved alot.  And idles so much smoother than it did.

    Simplified alot of the vacuum system.

    Had a quick look at turbo position while I was in the bay.

    Going to have space issues low mounting it so plan is to either mod or recreate the exhaust manifold and make it high mount instead.

    Are you going to run an intercooler?  Apologies if that’s a dumb ass question btw, I know next to nothing about turbo set ups.  Any thought to making it a rear mount turbo, just wondering if that may be easier space wise?

    Would be massively easier to mount it low and rearwards but then I’d need oil scavenging bits.  So as long as it phyically fits as high mount I should be ok.

     

    Going to run water to air intercooler so a small barrel will get mounted low and rearwards.  Haven’t decided exactly how or where it will go but I’ve got some ideas.

    Heat exchanger will go up front in bullbar.

    … but then I’d need oil scavenging bits.

    Any chance of you edumikating me, what exactly does that mean?  I have this stupid half ass idea in the back of my head to one day do a full rear mount turbo on mine blowing through my ITB set up.  Nfi if or how it would work, or if I would ever actually do it, but always nice to learn what problems etc that causes.

    Turbo oil relies on gravity to drain away,  so to have it level with or below the oil level in sump requires a collection point and then an oil pump to return it to the motor. Otherwise it backs up in the bearing and can blow seals. Usually shows up as smokey exhaust as it burns the oil

    So does that mean if you run the turbo right at the rear of the car there has to be an oil return line all the way to the front to the sump?
