new boost build thread/still in the makes

Well I am planning on boosting my svt swapped zx3. I thought I would share with you guys and ill provide prices on everything I have purchased so far. Obviously it will be ongoing as I am not done yet and still need a few things. I am trying to accomplish this as cheap as possible while still having a quality build.


The turbo:
A T3/T4 Garrett .57 trim compressor, .60 A/R, .63 hotside
-Made boost but smoked, needs seals $55 shipped to my door, rebuild is $85 with a 360 deg. thrust washer/bearing. $65 having it rebalanced, when all is said and done ill have ~$200 in the turbo.

http:/



Manifold:
A cheap home made job, a simple log made of 1.5" steel.
-Got it in a trade



BOV
A turbonetics raptor
-Got in same trade as the manifold



Fuel Injectors
-Siemens Deka 60# with 4K mi. on them $75 shipped to my door

Diablosport Mafia
-Used for a month until the motor blew, $60 shipped to my door

Diablosport Predator
-Bought brand new online for $279 shipped.

Oil pressure gauge
-Autometer sport-comp digital. came from the trade with the mani and bov.

I believe thats all I have so far.

Things still needed:
BAP
J&S (most expensive)
Wideband
Wastegate
Intercooler
Piping
Down pipe and eventually 3" exhaust
Oil feed and drain lines.
Tuning
Let me know if I am forgetting anything.


Total so far is $641
I traded a NOS kit that I got for a ebay header and a home made o2 cheater and a stock dogbone mount with poly inserts for a honda turbo kit. I sold everything but the Manifold(for a zetec), the BOV, the oil pressure gauge and some oil lines and fittings.

I will update as more things are purchased and I get closer until it is finished.


Thanks for looking,
Brandon

Congrats on the build and good luck. I started mine a while back but because of fiances had to stop it and go another way. I hope your build all works out great. I'd highly recommend Tom for the tuning.

And I hate to be that guy...but I have a good number of the things you still need to buy for sale in my Turbo part out thread. You should take a look at it.

Depending on how much power you make you may not need the BAP.

I'd stop around 250 if you dont have a Torson or Quaife.... but thats just me.

Also dont forget that at 250wtq the stock clutch tends to fry itself.

thats been gone long time ago. i have a CM stage 3 with their aluminum flywheel now. I figured whatever it makes on 15 psi is what i will be at. I dont want to go over that for fear of wasting a motor. Wasn't it you who ran 19 psi on a stock motor for 2 years and then turned it up before you blew it?
