Just because, eBay Gt45, eBay Turbo manifolds, eBay intercooler, walbro 255 inline, aeromotive reg, will mod my current 750 for boost following hanger18 instructions, and see what happens.
Was going to keep my mouth shut cause I'm known to change directions, or cars lol. But this is way to cool not to do....

Isnt it nice to be able to get the basic components for a turbo kit at a affordable price. I waited a long time for that. $4-5k on a kit is not reasonable to me.

$4-500 and your talking. Most people spend that on coated headers.

The little *bay t34 can be mounted on civic, integra, neon, cobalt, focus, Saturn, sunfire, etc.

A twin cam Saturn sl from 2000, can become a self destructing terror. Who would have thought the Saturn sl could become fast as the old factory corvettes. The fact that you only have to spend $500 to get there is a slap in the face. Then to be able to turn the power down for longevity is a bonus.

People said that the 90's mustangs were fast stock. I think they ran 15 seconds in the quarter and made 180 rwhp. A Saturn twin cam with these kits cam make over 200fwhp.

This is the hotrodding of today. It has to be. There is nothing but these crappy 4 cylinders everywhere I turn. If you can turn a wrench , now you can do something with them.

Im not sure about the legalities or ethics of it . Somebody else would know better

Its hilarious actually, I spend an obnoxious amount of time on turboforums and this stuff has gotten so simple its embarrassing....not sure if u have read the grenade thread over there, but its epic. I spent $150 on this Turbo, eBay cooler is $200, charge piping etc, maybe $100. Was looking at eBay Turbo headers but the way the cross over runs I may just make my own pass side with a merge from the drivers side and go from there. I am more the willing to see how long the bottom end hold up with decent forged slugs and really good flowing heads on 15# of boost lol. A wideband, a modded 750dp. And the biggest expense will be an MSD 6AL2 box. I know from digging through some past posts on here that not everyone agrees, but making 600+whp with 8.5comp, real good heads, and 15psi or less is not rocket science. Making it live, and the parts behind it live may be a different story lol, but I will fix and upgrade as its needed.

my twin turbo iroc was built after the grenade thread , all stock stuff pushing 23 psi of boost with an added nitrous shot ontop of it never an issue, infact ill be re regeristing that car end of this week now that the weather i s getting nicer , and ill drive it with that engine in it till i finish the sb 427

i also just ordered one of the ebay gt45's for my silverado 2500 those turbos even if u have to pay the full price of 300 bucks a unit are outstanding turbochargers and have been proven to be dead reliable


dont matter what u put the turbo on wether its a stock engine or a fully built engine, tune it right and the thing will last forever
