whitey's turbo build thread
might as well.. sorta halfass started on it the other day. have a few snails to play with.. got the motor back to the house since it was where i used to work at.. since it was here and i had a boring weekend, i spent hours going deaf with a grinder to make the 954 exhaust fit the .040" smaller exhaust port bores.
took the TB22 apart to start cleaning it. it's been rebuilt once already back in 2003.. i should probably do it again, but i can't get the wheels to hit the scroll.. so, fuck it. i'll run it til i find something else.. lol
have to make a trip up north soon i think because i'm pretty sure somehow i forgot the adjustable cam gears
also missing head bolts, but am planning on running ARP studs.. so, fuck those bolts.
well, after 2 days of grinding and sanding and whatnot, got 3 pipes to fit. lol.. ran out of cut-off wheels. sucks.. but, it's a start.
stock pipe and the modded pipe and flange. the holes in the flange were off just a tiny bit.. matco carbide burrs to da rescue.
had to remove about .020" the whole way around the fuckin thing to make em fit.. shit sucked.
hate grinding metal. lol next time, i'm buying pipe, a bender, and making those little rings to fit on a lathe.
fuck modding shit.. BUT, it was free, so, fuck it.
gonna offset the snail so it's hidden in the bodywork.. not sure yet how high i wanna mouint it.. it'd be easier to sling it WAY low under the radiator and use some sorta pump to pull oil out and back into the pan, but i really don't wanna do that.. will probably fab a custom bracket up, mod the bodywork and move the radiator forward 3" at the top and 5 at the bottom if i can.. that way i can run the charge piping straight to the intercooler without any stupid bullshit going on with the piping
so, heres 3 of the 4 pipes.. they're a little far out and i'll probably end up bending them a bit more. thought of armadillo bends, but i don't like that shit for something that'll be structural as this will be holding the turbo up.. so, fuck cutting and welding.. gonna pack those pipes with sand and bend the fuckers til i like them.
gonna run 1 into 2 and 3 into 4 and bring both those down into the collector.. but i have some extra pipe, so i might be able to pair them so the exhaust pulses aid in cylinder scavenging.. then again, i'm not even sure on the firing order. .lol.. would actually be better to build around the firing order! haha.
i have some trickery shit up mah sleeve.. not gonna say tho. .secret race trick. you'll see it after i get pics and run it/test it to see how effective it is.. might have to play with that setup i'm trying to perfect the shit and how it works.. as a hint tho, it'll help with spooling.. thats all i'm gonna say on that.
once i get the tank filled for the tig rig, ima start cutting and tacking pipes up and fabbing the airbox.. maybe.. still would rather spend the money on the CBR throttle bodies... being that EFI is the ultimate goal.. so, lets see if i can't maker this all happen!
no time frame on this yet.. all revolves around money.. but a realistic goal could be 12 months with efi and tune done, and several LSR records under the belt. a few months should a better job pop up. HP goal is between 250-300 at the wheel. MPH goal is 210 or better.. with 300hp i should be able to get 230mph with ease.
lots of little things in development as well.. we'll see whats in store for the blue beast.
