My first homemade turbo kit.
Any comments are great.
Sweet...did you make the mani?
what's the spec's?
Hope it works out man, heard a lot of horror stories of homemade turbo's.
calvin: sweet. i really like that setup.
frankie p: airjockie's homemade turbo setup is amazing. everything is pieced out, nothing is stock honda on his. its reliable even with hardly any tuning, due to the simplicity of those engines.
any boost setup can be reliable if corners aren't cut. there are tons of daily driven mirages on boost, just not in the US since they weren't sold under the name "lancer", and i dont mean the EVO. improper equipment and driver greediness can lead to a blown engine.
looks very nice.
how is it running?
any fuel management?
I am not sayin that homemade turbo's are bad, just hope everything is done perfectly well, it can me a huge mess if something goes wrong.
those plastic endtanks? plus how early you see boost? hm mani?
Holy heavy duty piping batman!
more info please?
