Drunkyoda's budget turbo build!
I have been contemplating this for too long. i think its time. im going to put a list here add anything you want. and if you have anything for sale for cheap lmk.

ok so im trying to piece together a full kit for around 1000 not including tuning.[:p]

we shall see if it can be done.

Turbo- already got for $40... very minimal shaft play. only axial. means no up and down shaft play. i think i got an awesome deal here. trying to figure out what the flange is though. It is an old Garret(airresearch) turbo off of an izuzu turbo bus. haha


42lb Injectors-

oil lines and fittings-

Water lines and fittings-


Blow off valve-


manifold & downpipe- 200 from a member

downpipe- see above

Tapped oil pan-

boost gauge- free with turbo

a/f gauge- free for christmas

I already looked at my other options and this is what i want to do so please dont clutter the thread saying you should go with this kit or that kit...

any other help i am welcomed to having. hope to update you guys some more.

very creative. I wish i knew how to build a turbo [V]

you'll also need a wide-band air/fuel guage...AEM one works good with SCT tuning[thumb]
good luck & keep us updated !!

Good luck! That turbo doesn't look like it's ever been mounted, let alone be from anything old.

i already have an AEM a/f gauge. and i am tuned for n/a right now lol.

Do you have the manifold as well?

If you're going with a used turbo I say go ahead and rebuild it, especially if you can do it yourself.

no manifold as of yet.

i might rebuild the turbo. we will see.

you might need depending on the size of the turbo a pcv delete and vent it to the atmosphere as well. maybe a boost a pump or svt fuel pump too
