Only way it could be cooler is with a turbo-D in front and a turbo-D in back. Nobody can resist drooling over double-D's... ;D


That shits really cool though. I can only imagine even a miata motor will be atom-like in all aspects.

I want 0 lag for autocrossing.  So the T25 will work perfect for that, besides it was free and had just had a rebuild done on it.

There are a few different types of plans.  There are the "Book Plans" that come from "how to build a cheap sports car", or something like that, then they have some others like the 442 which is 4 inches wider, 4 inches longer, 2 inches taller, and a couple other variations.

Spent some time working on the Locost this weekend, got the IC pipes all done and powder coated and the BOV installed.  I wired up the MSD boost unit and the O2 signal modifier and the RRFPR.  I also got the 1.8L injectors installed

Built the turbo intake pipe tonight and add a bung to the the other pipe for the IAC.




I also built a mount to hold the IC in place so now the nose cone fits over it

shouldnt the spacers be beveled?, like the ones you get with traction bars

malone labe

I think all cop cars need to have turbo. nbspnbsp Then they would understand the necessity of putting your foot down and how uncontrollable the urge is to fucking rail on that shit.

The spacers are small enough that they do not limit the heim movements.   That is the reason for the beveled edge.
