Another turbo build (Supersnail)

A couple guys asked me about the Supersnail turbo kit that I listed in another post. Rather than mess up what they have going on in that thread I thought I would start up another one since there seems to be some interest. It is a Supersnail kit that I have been working on for a while now. It is all together but I still have a bit of a idle issue with it, that I so far havent been able to cure. Other than that runs great. Here is a couple of pictures.






Specs are

Turbonetics Super60 stg I .48
2 1/2" from intercooler
2" to intercooler
3" mass air tube
3" Air cleaner tube(to inner fender)
3"Downpipe(that saves the AC compressor)
Log Manifold
Evolution Wastegate
Diablosport Mafia
Remote tune from Tom(FocusPower)

Currently running 16 PSI...no dyno as of yet.

As for the engine it is as follows-

60 lb Injectors
SVT Block
Eagle Connecting Rods
JE Forged 9:1 Pistons
ARP Main Studs
Focus-Power Billet Main Caps
Custom Focus-Power Oil Pump Flow Porting
Balanced / Blueprinted
Built by Tom at Focus-Power

As for the other stuff in the car.

Quaife Differential
Competition Clutch Stage 5 6 Puck
VF Engine Mounts

And goals...I am pretty much finished once I get the idle fixed.

Looks great! Never heard of the supersnail before.

Clean that engine bay up and it would be hot.

That kit is the last kit that SuperSnail has made..... for now.

I was wondering who ended up with it.

Part of the kit was Clints latest kit he built(actually the piping/blowoff valve and intercooler). The manifold/turbo/downpipe and wastegate was off of an older supersnail kit.

Like all things it needed slight modifications to fit, but it went together pretty well. It would be good to see Supersnail start making some more stuff....but I guess he stays pretty busy.
