Hughesy's 2nd Gen Duratec Turbo Build
Alright folks, I have come to a point where I am close enough to finishing my kit to start a build thread. Ok, the car I have is a 2010 se. I will be running stock internals and stock clutch until later on. Main goal is boost at this point.
List of parts: (I'll edit prices later, have a spreadsheet keeping track)
Isis RS3871 Turbo
Tubular bottom mount manifold
27x7x2.5 intercooler
2.5" piping with blow through set up
1st gen DSM BOV
42 lb injectors
knock off intake manifold
Oil Sandwich plate for oil feed
Turbo timer
Boost gauge

still needed:
3" Turbo back exhaust
Tune by Tom
Diablo Mafia: F7370

Ok so some of you have already seen the other thread I had going so don't get upset if you've already seen these pictures.
Well I started test fitting yesterday and things look a little snug but should not pose any problems.
Without manifold and turbo
with just manifold
^Just low enough to put the exhaust below the alternator(was my biggest worry)

Hughesy27 05-31-2012 08:56 PM

Here is some with manifold and turbo
^This was another concern for the intake but it is just a bracket that can easily be manipulated to make an intake work for the turbo. Also, can someone chime in and tell me what lines those are in the picture. Waste gate is a little close to them.( The ones with the heat guards on them)

For the cold side, I was fortunate enough to purchase Sporadic's cold side on here.(Thanks again)
(I like the blue but this has already been painted black)
For the top half of my cold side, I will be using the top half of a K&N typhoon CAI
Should work just fine. And I will be able to use the other half on the hot side or intake for the turbo.
When I mount everything I will make sure to post pics and what bends I used to make the hotside.
(will be painted black as well once welded together)

Hughesy27 05-31-2012 09:27 PM

This is all I have done right now just have to wait on a few more pieces. Starting tomorrow, I will be getting some more pieces. I'm gonna find a shop to do the downpipe and exhaust for me.( wish I knew how to weld or knew someone who was decent at it) Hopefully this will all be done by the end of next month if not the first week of July. Open to suggestions and will do my best to answer any questions you may have.

very nice keep the pics coming and good luck

Hughesy27 06-01-2012 06:39 AM

Thank you. Will definitely take as many as I can. Oil feed should come in today also a boost gauge I bought from a member on here. Going to be adjusting the turbo today will make sure to post some pics.

Well got some more goodies in the mail. Got my oil feed line in and put on the turbo. Got boost gauge that I bought from a member on here. I ordered SCT fire wire and brass T's for the water lines(Thanks Sporadic) and 1/8x3an for the sandwich plate for the feed line.
I slacked on getting pictures of clocking the turbo but didn't want to high jack my own thread for a how-to on clocking a turbo. I will post pics of the before and after. I did adjust the compressor housing so I can run the hot side piping a lot easier and more effective. Should finish up the cold side next week and will post pics of that.

Well the fire wire cable came in today. Got it on ebay for like 20. Good thing about it, it comes with a pin diagram. Did some more measuring for the intercooler and started looking at the angles I need for hotside piping. Once I get it all mapped out, I'll take some pics and list exactly what pieces I used and measurements for each one. I know I've searched on here plenty of times for what angles to use so once I finish it I will make that available.
Downpipe will be made hopefully next week sometime. Has to be custom made because of how low the manifold puts trubo. Gonna get some other stuff finished up next week still waiting for some parts to come in and some still need to order so bare with me folks.

This is where I got my firewire cable from It was like $3-$4 shipped.
