Default My Never Ending S13 SOHC Turbo Build

Whats up guys thanx for looking at my thread ...basically i got this car as a graduation gift from my uncle back in 2002 ,i was 17 at the time and had no clue about the potential of the car so to me it was a POS beater i drove it for about 2 years and ended up buying something else which left the 240 sitting in my yard up untill about a year ago . well heres some pics...still work in progress

this is when i got it..i polished the lip on my steelies..lol



The stock motor



Taking the stock motor out ...had a LOUD valve tick





rebuilt ka24e! Sucks trying to put it in with a gravel driveway!!









Coilovers And Rims

















new Exhaust




interior



^^^sloppy wires (i know)lol



Parts motor and Valve cover change









I LOVE GOOOOLLLLLDDD!!!!













TURBO TIME!!














































The turbo fits really tight i had to bend the dipstick tube and cut the motor mount and clock the turbo thanks to the great info sdaigle and this forum gave me

Just a few pics and an update (got bored LOL) I got now 8.5mm wires and some ngk plugs gapped @ .032 the car has been on the road for about a month now and has been running good with stock injectors and ecu @ 8 psi just gets a little lean at wide open throttle, an the stock clutch did not last long at all! I'm in the process of finding a good tuner and getting my new stage 3 clutch installed. So I will post my dyno sheet as soon as I get it! ! Can't wait!

you will probably have driveability issues with that blow through, I just realized how you had it set up. you should technically have straight pipe right before and after, your tuner will have a nightmare trying to get that thing to tune predictably.

You can try some saxon-pc honeycomb maf straighteners to help in place of the screen, but I don't know it will be enough.
