Xecutionr's TURBO BUILD

Just like the title says, i got a deal on a turbo setup that just needs a set of injectors and a tune and I am good to go.

getting the kit installed later this month and getting the tune from tom at the end of december or first week of jan (paychecks).

This kit is NOT TOP Brand its mediocre, but that is all i need for right now, just planning on running 6psi for now until the internals are built up. then i will replace the parts to top brand/quality parts. I am NOT going balls out on this setup right now, i am not stupid lol. just looking for some umpf in my ride.

here is the pic of the turbo setup

i will get more once i get it this weekend.



FUTURE Upgrades:
Garrett GT28RS Turbo
Eagle Forge H-beam Connecting Rods for '00-04 Focus Zetec
[Go to Greddy Type RS Blow Off Valve 40mm]
Greddy Type RS Blow Off Valve 40mm
CFM Zetec High Performance Short block.
Ford Racing Cylinder Head, Camshaft, Cam Gear Combo for '00-04 Focus Zetec (Exc. SVT)


these upgrades are WAY down the road




11/16 Update!

Picked up the turbo on sunday, and it was everything I was expecting!
no shaft play at all whatsoever and that thing is def brand new can't even tell it has 750 miles on it.
only downside is that the boost gauge is in BAR so that means im gonna run .42 boost ;) just means about ~6.1 psi
the intercooler was REALLY light i mean ridiculous light weight, that is a plus im guessing lol.

Installing the intercooler this weekend and prob slapping on the turbo too, getting everything setup in the car to run the wideband and boost gauge. also installing the oil pan with the bung welded in.


Things to get:
Wideband - 169.99 (ebay)
MaFia - 150$ (mcnews)
siemens 60lb Injectors - 178$ (mcnews) OR a set of 52lb injectors in the BST forums



11/20 Update!

got the front bumper pulled off
Removed EGR system
mocked up how the inter cooler is going to set in.













there is a better shot of the turbo in those pics...

if they are i will def. take them off your hands sean! btw yeah its OBX, I think it looks like really good fab work to be honest, does anyone else agree or disagree? i mean to be honest this is what i paid for the kit..

Xbox elite with two controllers and recharge station
stock parts off my car that i will be taking off to install the turbo charger (because his car blew up because he had no tune, and therefore is trying to get his car back to stock)
and 125$

i couldn't pass up the offer, there is only 750 miles on the turbo kit.

That's pretty dang cheap.

SVT injectors will not flow enough for boost. Just get 60 lbs/min injectors and be done with it. No need to upgrade ever again. You'll thank yourself later.

What size turbo?

Lastly, I would take off that part about your friend's warranty situation. This is a public forum and that is not the most honest way to do it...
