SaleenT's Duratec 2.0L Build

I don't think you've convinced me enough yet to get a turbo. [emoji57] might have to throw me those keys one more time.

**Update 2015**

Well i got some new parts and decide to re-tune the car. In the form of a list here goes..
-New custom log style turbo manifold
-New GT2871R turbo (replaces old gt28rs)
-New External WG (formally internal gated)
-Plugs now gapped at 28 from 35
-Boost up to 26psi up from 24psi
- KB boost-a-pump is still not maxed out at this level on an otherwise stock fuel system.
-10" air filter

Power level (old) GT28RS
-low boost 14psi:280whp 287wtq
-hi-boost 24psi: 315whp 323wtq

Power level GT2871R
-low boost 16psi: 306whp 282wtq
-Hi boost 26psi: 355whp 370wtq

This is a .86 exhaust housing. I am glad i did this upgrade, its way more punch without being to large a turbo. great for the street and feels amazing!
Also i have a 3" turbo back exhaust connected with V bands. and external WG dump.

Note: Saleen exhaust is a magnaflow 2.25 diameter and is not suitable for boosting over 8psi.

QTP? must post vids , thats gonna sound wicked

I was reading about your engine build and I think I'll go the same way of yours.

My d20 blew up last night, I was running 11psi on a gt2871. Now I'm looking for pistons and rods.
Do you remember what PN of Wiseco you got? Your engine bore is the stock 87.5?
