dont quote me on this, but i think that if you ran your stock injectors, you could drive down to Evans, just make sure you dont go into any boost. just having the turbo installed shouldnt hurt anything.
If you hit the freeway, you're gonna come outta vacuum, or at least get damn close.

You can run the car on stock injectors making sure that the intercooler pipe is disconnected as you drive to jeff evans. I've done it MANY times before. At the shop that you tune, you can then put in your injectors at the time of dyno. You will not "overspin" the turbo and as long as you keep yourself under control, you'll be fine.

This is Nate's boy, some pieces he snagged off of kids used but in almost mint condition, some are new.. depends on what he could get. It all depends upon how much your looking to spend. He is already over budget but for the parts he bought they were better then what he was planning on getting. Ill call him get him on here...

Thanks J-dawg! Yes ive been pieceing this kit together for over a year. Some parts were found used on here, HT and a few other sites and then NOLIMITMOTORSPORTS helped me out greatly. We should see if we can pick them up as a sponser. Parts were next'd day'd to me. which was sweet!

TheShodan (turbomaster) - ive read a lot of your other posts and you give a ton of great feedback and great advice, i would trust the possibility of driving like you said but my boy has a trailer with a power'd wench so were prob just gonna use that.

Azpoolz - take your time and search for good parts, if you have to spend a little more to get the quality stuff i would suggest it...

A little sneak peak for everyone...
YUMMY..

Mani before #1...

Mani before #2...

Mani fresh out of the shop... (special coating)

k3nny- They dipped it in a material to help dissipate heat. It looks crome but its a silverish color. When i go to install ill get better pics of everything!

CryFarKilla - What setup does your buddy have? how many lbs of boost is he running and does he have a dyno sheet?

This project will be on going, i want to get it up and running for now and i will add it more goodies later, but there are more important things i want to focus on before i just go all out on my car. I will own this car for a longgg time comming and hopefully i will be able to join my buddys race team down the road. We will see its still a ways down the road. Thanks for the comments fella's.

Yep between me and my friends we have spent the past year and within a weekends time we can have a car up and running..

We did his DD during spring vaca in 2 days. His other car is the monster drag car that is comming along quite well.

Im awaiting a few little parts and for my oil lines to be made and then it should be setting up a day. But i dont think its going to happen until the july'ish timeframe.

I stay far far away from anthing that remotly made me think it was ssautocrap... i spent a little more then i wanted but it was all for the better. And its should last me way longer then just one day...

Im not sure of what material it is but it was about 300 bucks for the exhaust housing and mani to be dipped and what a difference it makes... i saw it for the first time in person today.. all i can say is AMAZING!

Turbo teardown begun today. I got everything off, Ac and radiator is out, the exhaust header is out, all old motor mounts are out, Safc2 was pulled, Autometer A/F was removed..

Hastport race mounts are in, Manifold was test fitted, Walbaro 255 fuel pump is in, Oil pan was marked for oil return line, oil lines were partialy built, parts were ordered(couplers, t-clamps, 3" thermal exhaust, water temp gauge, boost gauge), we made a homemade vac unit like golden eagles... (ill post pics later)

I forgot my camera but i should be returning up there in the next few days.

Thanks to my AFAP Racing LLC Crew they are the best! Shirts, hood spacers, and vac units will be up forsale soon!




BTW this is our main car for our AFAP Race team... (a lot more has been done since this pic)


Enjoy!! Ill keep updates as i work on my car!
