    I know a lot of you are turbo gurus, I am not at all but have been trying to read up on it as of late.
    I will be done with my lsvtec build in the next month or so and wanted to start piecing together a turbo setup for it this spring. Im not trying to go 10's or make 500whp but somewhere in the 200-250 range would be nice. I would also like to keep my ac because its hot as fuk in Florida.

    This is what I had thought of for my setup:

    Garret t3/t4
    Tial 38mm wastegate
    Greddy bov
    log manifold not sure what brand suggestions welcome
    I will build the ic piping at my friends shop
    some type of fmic
    450-550cc injectors
    uberdata


    Am i forgeting anything like maybe a wideband or something? Thanks guys.

    well yea get a wideband

    and just for reference when its injectors buy bigger becasue
    1. its easier to push less fuel outa somthing than more and
    2. you ever want more boost than you might have to get bigger injectors

    well thats about all i can think of right now.... im tired

    yeah wide band is good.

    If you are only looking at about 200-250 HP, i think everything is about right. Might want to factor in some dyno time for tuning.

    Yes I have figured dyno time which wont be a problem since Titan motorsports is 15 mins away, I would like to be closer to 250 whp as my goal. 550 cc fuel injectors it will be then.

    anybody else care to chime in?

    Ok list looks good..whatever you do. DO NOT get ssautocrome ANYTHING..all there stuff sucks balls...and on the uberdata...I would suggest getting crome pro. Its $150 but you can tune on the fly and it has datalogging. Much like the hondata S300. B knows more about the tuning aspect then me cuase im still learning about it but everything looks good..t3/t4 are big but your engine I think can handle it with not that much lag...if you want to get more bang for the buck I would go for a GT28R (garrett turbo) its a ball bearing so it spools alot quicker and more efficent.

    yes this is correct

    ls vtec
    00 gsr head
    98 ls block
    stock internals


    I have been looking for sites that sell turbos and have found phoenix turbos and full race but would like to see some other options if you guys know of any?

    you so dont need a full-race kit for 250 hp. lol
    even the peak boost kit will make 300 no problem

    both of those are expensive though...

    if i were you, i'd piece it together....


    inline pro mani
    tial 38mm WG
    tial 50mm bov
    precision turbo sc34 .57/.63
    precision 350 hp i/c
    DIY piping/oil lines

    the ls pistons with the gsr head really kill your power cuz of the compression drop to 9.7-ish, so yo're going to need a little more boost than regular GSR would to make the same power.

    550's will be MORE than enough. 450s' will probably be fine.

    Great info thanks, know of a place that sells these items at a decent rate that you trust?
    I found the sc34 for around $800-850 does that sound right?

    also with crome pro would I just get the basemap from someone like phearable or xenocron?


    thanks for the offer, might hit you up down the road.


    thanks to all for the help!
