ok, ill be the one to ask... what hood is that? and are those vents functional , or is the lower shell blocking it?


Im almost done my build too... got all the pipes at the powdercoater...then ill unveil it in a thread when its done :) we should do a photo shoot later when they are both done.

oh, and if you interested, ive got a way you can be exempt and still be a DD ( just gotine indpection with exempt status :) pm me if your interested

Just a standard manual one. Should be online with the wastegate and turbo correct? And I can only decrease the boost not increase right? So for example I would have to have a 20lb combined spring inside the wastegate on order to hit 20psi or lower psi. I could not have a 12psi spring and use the controller to turn up the pressure because the whole point of the boost controller is to leak air out of the vacuum to decrease the amount getting to the turbo?

Is there a certain area on the intake manifold? Or any of the pre existing vacuum lines will work just have to buy a T splice to add in?

Steeda Hood, it is not vented it is louvered. I will be dremeling small slits into the bottoms of the louvers to let heat out but I'm DEI wrapping everything to hell so under engine temps should not even be a concern of mine.

We can def do a photo shoot in September, I deploy 21st of Sept to Afghanistan so it's gotta be sometime in the week or two prior.

it should work inline between the intake manifold source and bottom port on wastegate.

this will allow you to increase boost pressure from the spring current rate. you can not go under the spring pressure.

sourcing from the turbo will give you a lower boost capability than sourcing boost from the intake manifold b/c of pressure lose across intercooler and piping. hooking up to the comp housing of the turbo will work but it will usually be about 2psi lower than on the IM

tee off any port on the back of the IM

Ahhh.... So I had it backwards.... You can turn it up, but not down? Ok ok I got it now.

Thanks Tim,

Ill post a picture of the intercooler after I customize it. Can't say what I'm doing yet but I think it will go over very well with the focus community.

yeah you can turn it up. usually up to double spring pressure.

the wg spring is compressed at a certain psi and that amount depends on the thickness of the spring of tension on the spring. you can get a thicker spring to increase boost, put shims under the spring to increase tension and boost, or get a controller which limits the amount of boost pressure the wg actually receives.

if you have an 8lb spring and reference wg off comp housing and your boost gauge on the IM you will see less than 8 on the gauge. you can switch the wg to the intake and it will pick up more boost.

::::::::Update:::::::::

Got more stuff in. Decided that I was going to clean up the engine bay a little bit so I ordered CFM 10 piece coolant hose kit from William. Also I will be running a 70/30(Distilled/coolant) ratio with redline water wetter. Did alot of research on that one and it seems to be the optimal ratio to not cause any type of corrosion with the radiator.

Also ordered a GIGANTIC roll 2x100ft of DEI titanium wrap for all of the intercooler piping and DP.

I have 2x50lb packages coming in from William at CFM this Friday.

So here's a question for you guys. Do I A. Buy the Ct2 4747 comp turbo with triplex bearings and HF Billet wheel that's $1200, B. Buy the standard bearing turbo for $600 and buy a Topspeed intake mani $550.... Honestly Tom said I don't need the intake mani for 375whp so I'm leaning towards the Triplex turbo because of the impressive torque numbers.

..::Update::..

No longer waiting till September to finish this project. Managed to get the last 2 weeks of July off from work so I will begin a lot sooner than predicted. Currently received all of my stuff needed to finish the car. The only think I am currently waiting on is my Turbo from Comp, and going to pic up the block from the shop this week.

Will begin uploading more pics of parts tmrw after the gym.

Great build so far and good looking car. I think 400 WHP is very doable.

Thanks :P

Yeah I'm pretty sure 400whp shouldn't be a problem, I just like to be super safe and route out all possible problems that might arise so I can get them all taken care of at the same time.
