Blackcatn2o's turbo build thread.

yep it's true i'm going to go turbo after owning 2 focus's.

the plan is to shoot for 300/350

mods will be:
ported head
1.5mm bigger intake valve
2mm bigger exhaust valve
Crane STG 2 cams and springs & retainers
adjustable cam gears
Cosworth ITM
eagle connecting rods
Supertech pistons.
ARP head & main studs
Ford ranger crank keyed with the Cosworth keyed sprocket
Aluminum flywheel
haven't decided on a clutch yet
tubular turbo manifold
the "uh oh" turbo
oil cooler with sandwich plate.
don't know what injectors to run yet, Cosworth has a fuel rail an injectors but it's a little pricey.
HKS super sqv bov
Massive speed system Oil baffle & BSD kit.


and i know everyone loves pictures so here is the 2.3L engine that i ripped apart this weekend.










Tom i don't know how you do it but a stroker kit for these has got to be pretty damn close to touching the walls.

Looks good

Looks like you're gonna be putting down some serious power. No ARP studs?

i'd just follow along the lines of what this guy did (other than his stock bottom end) because that power curve looks damn good. another ~4lbs of boost (12-13) and your into the 300s.

the thing about that is if a turbo is rated for 360hp an you decide to want to make more like 350, now your going to burn the turbo up faster at full boost. it's like running around town i first gear all the time.

it's that fine line between turbo life & faster spool, just have to fine that happy medium.

the "disco potato" is a good turbo for stock internals.
