The TurboS10 gets a Heart Transplant: Operating Pictures

Its getting closer. I got the engine stabbed today on the S-10. Looks like the turbo and piping are going to clear everything. Considering I built it on the stand with a tape measure that is pretty surprising.

Well, just thought I would post a couple of pics. I am pretty damned giddy this evening so I thought I would share.

Me running the hoist while my little bro guides her in place.



It fits!!!




Okay....Why did the pics not show up? I linked it to my album....

Turbo, looks great. Have you talked with Terry at Edelbrock about stuffing the Pro Flow I saw sitting on top of the motor? I'm curious about how the computer is going to manage the air/fuel ratio with the turbo.

I talked to one of the techs at Edelbrock who had set up several supercharged Pro Flo systems. What he said they did was just add larger injectors and pull fuel out of the curves at low RPM to keep the mixture livable. I am going to try to run a 2 BAR MAP sensor along with the large injectors to avoid having to change the fuel tables as much. I also have a contact who has reverse engineered the Edelbrock code and has the ability to burn custom chips. This would really be ideal from a tuning perspective if he can set up tables for 2 BAR. Of course this will cerainly be a challenge. I am not overly concerned about the drivablility since this primarily is a race setup. I would like to be able to limp it along around the streets a bit, but fueling under boost at high RPM will be the main focus. Hopfully I will eventually learn enough about the system to get the drivability nice also.

From what I have been able to find, I am kindof pioneering here. If the Edelbrock ECU is not up to the task, I will probably toss it for a more capable unit down the road. There are several controllers out there that work well with boost.

2 questions TurboS10....Where is the distributor at? How well does it fit with the motor in? Looks like it'll be veeery tight.
Also did you scap the twin turbo idea? The setup in the pic looks like a single turbo setup.

Looks good though...You are braver than I am, I would've pulled the front clip to set the motor in. Knowing my luck the hoist woulda took a dive and the motor would've crushed everything from the firewall forward...

Later,
WEIMER

Rubberman, it is a semi turbo. I hope to have it fully spooled by 4000RPM. It will support around 1000HP, but I am going to limit boost to keep it around 700 untill I can get an aftermarket block and a better fuel managment system....which could be never.

Weimer, There is actually alot of room. I was surprised t how easy it all fits. I did scrap the twins for ease of installation, and the fact that many classes only allow one power adder and twin turbos is considered as two. As for the hoist, I did manage to keep all the paint in tack untill putting the hood back on. I got the first good chip, but repaired it quickly before I started crying.

Thanks for the kudos everyone, and Monte LMAO.


Later,


Chris

Damn CHris...looks good bud...but I do have a question....

With that much HP (1000 as you stated - I think), how will you be able to put all that to the ground? I mean, we are talking a light bodied vehicle with a very light rear end (not the actual rear end, but the whole rear portion of the truck). It just seems to me like you may be over-powering the abilities and traction factor.

I am by no means bashing you, I think you did a great job!!

A buddy of mine has a early/mid 80's s-10 with a 283 destroked and a corvette 6-speed tranny...he runs in the high 11's with it and it is a true screamer. Saw him break it sideways at 60 mph!!!! Scared the hell out of the junker Impala that was trying to get him to run it on the interstate...LOL
