Custom turbo build
Ive decided to build a custom turbo being i can get the parts locally(jamaica) for a fair price but i have some questions.

1. wats the best management to use(very important) the higest grade gas we have here is 90.
2. wat r the parts exactly i need ie: turbo, piping (various degrees bent), downpipe etc.
3. i only want about 210-225whp n about the same torque i would be very happy n no more than 10psi.
my mechanic is very helpful but he said management & tuning is the most important factor. would the xcal2 help?
thanks for all ur responses

Here we go, did you do some searching on the site, you can find a lot of info cuz you are not the 1st one doing this.

Well I can say you are spot on about the tuning. 210-225whp should be easily attainable but with only 90octane gas you might be alittle limited. The xcalII won't do any actual tuning itself but you can have someone tune it for you, load it on the Xcal and then load it on your car. Just do some reasearch and look around the site. You'll find everything you need.

ok guys thatnks, but seriously where should i look on this site?...i've tried searching but end up with limited info...can the tuning be down directly to the ecu?...meaning using a lap top n dyno without the xcal2?

i believe you need some type of tuning device unless you have a chip burner...i may be wrong though

jamfrank 01-30-2007 05:04 PM

tuning device?

cayres 01-30-2007 05:28 PM

sct xcal 2 or a diablosport preditor.

jamfrank 01-30-2007 05:56 PM

ok, so it's best to get an xcal or diablo n then upload the tune there n plug n upload from the device? also where on this site i can search to find the parts needed?

jamfrank 01-30-2007 06:14 PM jus tell them wat u've done, they write the tune, u get the xcal2 n upload the the tune?
