'00 Turbo Zx3 Build

Hey guys first post on the forums. I wanna share some pics and ask some question from everybody The back story on this build is that I got a Lincoln town car for 300 fixed it for 50 bucks and traded it for this focus.



First things first it needed a cv axle



gutted the bay to make room



60lb injectors



used this port on the side head for the oil feed



Bought a header off of ebay and welded my own end on it to make this work



3 inch down pipe fabbed up



3 inch exit lookin nasty



3 inch high flow cat and aem wideband



oil return location



how much I had cut off the hood to make it shut



as of today I put the stock intake on just to drive it around



If you have any comments or questions I would love to hear them and answer to the best of my abilities this is my first car that wasn't v8 and 4wd so im still fiquring this fwd thing out. My question for you guys is that im putting a boost a pump in I got it brand new and it didn't have a control knob like ive seen on other peoples builds. Do I need one? or will the pressure switch work that out for me only going to be 8 pounds of boost. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

You will need to use a site like imgur or photo bucket to upload pictures. Or Tapatalk app for the mobile version and upload right from your phone.

Just a couple of updates here. I got the boost a pump all wired up. Intake all put together and blow off valve hooked up. Air Fuel gauge and the boost gauge are working and I gutted the rear half of the interior and started to paint it all with por 15 then its going to get topcoated gray after the cage goes in. Also picked up a metal valve cover at the u pull it for 10 bucks.

Awesome bro! Love a home made turbo set up. I can't view your pic of the downpipe. Can you post a pic of how your manifold meets your pipe to your hot side? I'm curious if you used the factory manifold.

Sorry it takes me a little bit to resize pics my phone pics are 6 mb for some reason. But anyway did you mean the exhaust manifold. I used a ebay manifold and cut the end off and made a bend to fit where i wanted it.
This is the manifold i used except i paid 50 for it. 00 04 Ford Zetec Custom T3T4 Turbo Charger Kit 2 0 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2 0L | eBay

thats where i cut and turned and added some pipe to it.
