i've read that the SVT can handle up to 17 PSI safely. is this true? from what im researching the stock SVT components are good including the fuel system.

i guess i really need to decide now before i start buying things if im going Turbo or SC

almost sounds like i just need to buy a turbo and slap it on and grab a tune.
my goal is 300HP.

Quote:
On the SVT with a BAP and proper tuning (that I figured out) you can achieve well over 350whp on the STOCK fuel system. I have datalogs showing 62psi of fuel pressure at 7200rpms while running 20psi. I shared this info with Tom and he is also doing the tune adjustments on the tunes he does.
whats a BAP? should i just change the spark plugs, fuel injectors, turbo/SC and grab a tune?

do you think i can fit a turbo on this kit? or should i just skip the hassel and go supercharger. which i cant seem to find for sale anywhere online. how would you go about cooling with a inter cooler, side mount inter cooler perhaps? i think rerouting to the front would cause lag but i know there are alot of arguments on that theory. your the pro here.

I think the SPA manifold , my turbo and the downpipe would bolt right into that perfectly , then you would have to make your intake and intercooler piping which I would love to do but your to far away

BAP = Boost-a-Pump t boost the voltage to the fuel pump making it add more fuel volume and psi , you dont need it

I would do a return fuel system and I can help you set that up

280-300HP can be done what boost it takes to get there will change with what turbo , manifold , piping etc

well with the turbo downpipe and SPA manifold. what kind of boost would that put out?
and the inter cooler is my main concern as well. can i run it to the front? or would that be bad.

and what exactly is the point of a return fuel system?

basically from what im gathering if i can get good intercooler set up all i need is
1. SPA manifold which i already found
2. 3 bolt waste gate
3. (turbo) not sure which turbo will work on the mani
4. custom intercooler setup as well as intake
5. return fuel system
6. a tune
7. spark plugs

and thats it? everything including the injectors are good as is from factory?

if so then this is by far the easiest turbo set up ive ever done. i should have gone to ford along time ago, making my old scion run boost was a pain just to get 12 PSI to run safely.

You would also need

180 deg thurmostat
60lb injectors
MAFia
3 inch MAF tube

SPA now sells an adaptor plate where you can run the 2 bolt turbonetics EVO waste gate

With having to do a fuel sell anyway and fuel pump I would just make a return fuel system , in the end this will save you money and be the best fuel system you could go with , with building the car your almost there already vs some one with a Focus and having to start with the stock returnless fuel system

You will need a good fuel pump , regulator rise and rate for boost , fuel rail and fuel lines , the pump and lines your going to have to do anyway

Missed this one earlier , the halo is basicly the antenna thet picks up the chip in the key for the PATS this and a key/chip will need to be mounted together in the car somewhere for it to start

when it comes time to do the piping for the turbo here is a little inspiration.


^^ this is the turbocharged engine that ford did for the fr200. they only made 3.
i feel the piping is something that could be duplicated on your kit car. the lag would be minimal since the path is so short.
IMO this would be a killer looking setup.

Problem with that would be heat soak , top mounts hold a lot of heat , the FR200 I got to drive you could see the IAT going up more and more even at cruise , it is an option for him thos depending on cover clearances

Reminds me of my WRX! It's a idea. Not sure how much room I have. But something has popped up. I can get a Jackson racing supercharger for $1500. Good deal? Comes with everything but injectors. And I could even use it now and not worry about space when I move it over. What kind of power/boost can I get out of it? And what injectors would you recommend. I could get better headers with that too. And grab a tune from you.

Not a big fan of the jrsc , for track days it heat soaks like crazy , IAT will exceed 230-250 deg hard running , which causes a major loss in power , engine torque is low

For kids wanting just a little more power red light to red light they were ok but they never impressed me

It just depends on what your going to do with the car and what your goals are , you will never see 300hp even with a BBK = big boost kit , 50lb Ink would be fine

What would I get with a bbk and and 50 pound injectors? 10 psi? If so I think I might just settle for the good price and grab a tune from you. The kit will still be super fast. It will be fun at the track. But it's more of a toy then a track car. I plan on making a drift car for track events. The kit will never really be track certified due to its Frame structure =[ I can only take it out on open track/lap days. Can't really enter any events with it.
