Quoting bob92vr4:

i dont know if you thought of this but might hava good pdr guy (paintless dent repair) look at it and give you a estimate to repair the hail could be cheaper. just a thought. good luck bro!




It would be a fortune unless you knew a guy. I just went through that. I got quoted in the thousands and that is minus the hood and trunk. Be patient and look around.

We need to know your goals before we help you decide on a turbo. "Wanna make it fast" is a bit vague.




well i want at least low 11's...

which looking around people are doing that on pump gas and a 50 trim.... so maybe my goals should be a 10.999999999 hahahha

i am deff gonna run e85 cause i have seen all my friends convert to it and run way better everything....

Weight reduction plays a pretty large role in what people run with certain turbos on these cars. Keep that in mind. Not everybody runs low 11's with a 50trim.

Is the turbo oil drain actually going over and around the front crossmember? Or is it just hanging there and I can't see the unfinished end? I know there are limits as to how far rotated from straight up/down the feed and drain need to be for proper draining and that center section looks clocked quite a bit.

Piping looks nice, but maybe you want to throw one or two couplers in there somewhere. Seems like it'd be a hassle to have to remove the whole pipe to access something in the engine bay if needed.

yeah its a little cocked but its as vertical as i can get it without removing the front motor mount.... i think it will work worse case i will just have to redo it again....

and i dont know anything about your setup i just know on other fast cars i have had once you start running a lot of boost it sucks balls blowing off couplers.... so for me the less couplers the better.... (the piping is still really easy to remove the way it is)


UPDATE.... got a bunch more done....

finished welding up all the seems on the boost pipe and mounted up the BOV where i want it.





its gonna be low and out of the way but should be nice and loud outside the car...



then made myself a little downpipe.... wish i woulda bought some 3 " mandrel bends.... this will still flow just as good but damn is it a ton more work....



my entire boost system is 7 welds.... the downpipe alond is 10.



for now im just running it to here.... just past the motor with a turndown.... gonna be loud and fun...



then lastly i did the wastegate dump tube..... which fortunately was really really easy...




So yeah pretty darn close to done now... gotta intall the ecu and wire up the fan and stuff like that....

then as soon as my MAFT gets here, hopefully tommorrow i can start this bia up and see what happens...

I like how you are making your own stuff. I'm gonna learn to weld one of these days.

Post up some vids of that thing, i'm sure it will be loud and fun like you stated above. Fly by vids a must. Preferably one fly by where the car begins from a dead stop to get the full effect. In car vid would be cool too.

The build is looking good. Just a few comments that may or may not help. You will want to recirculate your BOV unless you are planning on running a speed density setup. At the very least you should look into upgrading from a 1g MAS to either a 2g or 3g MAS because the 1g MAS is a major restriction. With the 255 pump, it's also highly recommended to replace the stock FPR with an aftermarket unit, because that pump will overrun the stock FPR causing a very rich condition at idle.

So far so good! Congratulations on saving one of these awesome cars.

EDIT: Just noticed you are planning to use a GM MAFT. Ignore that part about changing out the MAS and having to recirculate the BOV.

thanks to mitshu for making the ecu very difficult to get to....



finally got it out.. good thing too the stock ecu has some burnt circuits....



also got my battery cable run from the bay to the trunk....



Oh and removed a bunch of stuff....

I can get the ECU out in 2-3 mins. You don't go through the front, you get it from underneath.

especially since below temp (can't remember what the temp is exactly d'oh) the ecu pulls timing much in the same way it does when it gets too hot.

Anything under 180degrees and the ecu is still in warm-up mode. I would suggest the stock thermostat for better fuel economy and power. There is zero reason to run the lower temp thermostat in a car that has properly working fans and radiator.

And yeah, the ecu comes out super easy from underneath. One bolt and one nut and the thing slides out with ease.

What's with the super thin flange on that intake? Hope it doesn't leak.

Yeah that wasn't worded right.... i was really pissed thinkin it was gonna suck balls looking at the ecu but once i popped the two bolts off and it practically fell out i felt stupid.


figured why not on the thermo.... if it runs wierd i will swap it back.... dont care about fuel economy and only running the half radiator so i wanna make sure it doesn't run to hot....


and not sure what flange your talking about on the intake?

I'm thinking he means the runner flange. The one that bolts to the head. They are usually pretty darn thick to prevent warping under the heat and leaking.

It isn't just a fuel economy thing with the thermostat. What do you think you're going to gain by using the 160degree unit?

And yeah, I'm talking about the flange that bolts to the head.

You cant even start seeing the fuel trims change until about the 180 mark. You are goin to end up chasing your tail trying to tune the thing.
