it fires up and runs like a clock, with the exception of air being introduced to the cooling system. Since I know the engine is being replaced, ive done a few WOT 1st & 2nd gear pulls. only on 6 lbs, reving only to 5500 this thing pulls haaaaard.
It's definitely going to be wicked when Itsb reliable.
Well I'm going to see how much boost it will take with this borg warner 66mm to split it.. seems like that's the only way this warranty is going to be any good. They just keep telling me to replace the gaskets.
The way I figure it....the first fuse is my 265/35zr18 tires....then the T5....then the block. Thanks to MS, an over rev will be unlikely. My set up will stay in low boost. I'm just toying around with this thing until I can afford a real beast.
She's coming back together guys!
I've also decided to do a hood exit with the downpipe... how far out of the hood do you guys think I should run it, like would there be any risk of damaging the window cause of a back fire?
Oh yeah and I'm going to be mocking the hood exit downpipe(up pipe now? Lol).
In the last picture I posted, if you look behind the turbo on the fire wall, you can see where I already did a little clearancing with my trusty ol' left handed adjustable BFH lol
Well guys she fired right up!
Sounded healthy, didn't let it run long mainly because I didn't have any coolant in it, but as soon as my afr gauge warmed up and started reading it was maxed out lean.
Tomorrow I plan to do a little tuning so it's somewhat drive able.
How does pulling 2* per psi sound if I'm only running 6psi with a s366 on a stock head/cam with a track heat upper sound?
I only plan to rev it to 6250.
