my old turbo whips
« on: March 08, 2009, 01:35:00 AM »

What started it the ricey accord, well I had an old school turbo 300zx before that but did nothing to it. I Blew this thing up twice in less than 2,000 miles  :yes:  I need more pictures of the build but, I can't get them off of the old hmt, if someone with an account wants to get them for me, go to search and look up skinnye turbo accord

The setup:
stock f22a1 with 157,000 miles compression tested = good
1g dsm turbo manifold
t25 way too small
stealthmode oil line kit
saab intercooler
1g dsm bov
gude cam
aem cam gear
2g dsm injectors
2'' hot side piping 450's
2.5'' cold side piping
bus driver fan to cool intercooler
smaller 3 g accord radiator fan for clearance issues
cheapo filter
stealthmode performance couplers
homedepot couplers
2.25inch exhaust from turbo back
homedepot catch can
homemade polyurathane motor mounts
homemade battery relocation kit
p06 ecu
uberdata(this was 2005)
10psi to 12 psi of boost with just a basemap = every ring land broke after 1500 miles, second engine melted a piston
competition 6 puck

The car:

loving the old school turbo mopars.  I was so close to buying an old omni GLH for the longest time, after I had my SRT-4...nothing quite as fun as an 80's styled car that can put a hurting on some stock mustangs.  ;D

Def digging the oldschool turbo dodges. Used to have an Omni GLH. Loved that car even though it didnt like the heat. Super Clean CSX though.  :yes:
