single turbo z32 project
Posted 06 October 2009 - 11:58 PM
Anyways... new setup is consisting of the following:
71mm Holset hx52
single throttle body plenum with Q45 90mm tb
top feed rails w/ 900cc injectors
twin walbro pumps
lots of other misc stuff but thats the major stuff.
Also, interior is getting redone black w/ new carpet
car will also be getting repainted white and the engine bay black.
My new toy (idk what happened to my picture of it, but between these 2 you get the idea) ThermalArc 185 Tig,...i love this thing
and the reason behind all this nonesense
motors out, old setup is all off, bye bye twins
Play time is over.
radiator positioning, ignore the ghetto mounts, i just wanted to see how it fit up.
and lastly, a before and after of my engine bay to this point:
cut out the battery tray (all rust is just surface rust so it will all be grinded down when the bay gets painted.
alright well manifolds are done (tackin wise) w/ collectors and vbands.
and got my fuel fittings/fpr
Heres some pics of the manifolds in the car, I can remove either one with no trouble with the motor in
I ended up shortening the passengerside about a inch to clear the turbo better, but this is where the turbo is going to be sitting in the bay.
and the intercooler (which is going under the nose panal)
Thats all for right now, should have the cross over done by the end of this weekend hopefully, then time to start on the intake manifold

got a jig made to hold the turbo for the crossover.
and how the turbo will sit, dont mind the angle iron, the jig isnt welded completly and i didnt want it to snap lol from the 40lb turbo weight lol
fits pretty good....should have the cross over done tomorrow and hopefully get the intercooler mounted as well.

Heres some pics of the crossover done.
I am going to redo the drive side vband and move it back a couple inches so it's not so close to the cold pipe.
and a waterbox for the water/air
just waiting for my gas lense to get here then I will be welding up the crossover/manifolds

Also got a new lip for the car and I have had these turn signalsfog light ducts sitting around forever so this will be the new front end when i go to get it painted
The intake manifold has gone through a couple revisions But this is the final one,
It's not finished yet, brining the valve covers/lower plenum to get cleaned monday. I cut the roof of the plenum off so thatI can weld the inside around the ports and smooth them out. Also drilled the lower plenum for the injectors, they are going to sit alot lower, just havnt cut the bungs yet.
Thats all for now, was hoping to get alot done this week but I caught a cold and have been in bed/playing xbox for the last 2 days lol. But I should have the intake mani finished by the end of this week and the valve covers flattened as well. The goal to finish it by is the first week of jan so ima have a good xmas break working on it.

Got the fuel rails done,
Intake manifold some what together and also cut the tops off the valve covers:
Also picked up my aem
My origional plan was to run twin walbro intank pumps, but the more I think about it i'm leaning towards going with a single external. I have looked at aeromotive eliminators but have read that even witht he voltage controller they still run hot on street cars. I've seen a couple people run a magnafuel pump and i'm really leaning towards going that route. Anyone have any experience with these pumps?

Nice setup. Kinda similar to my equal length front mount turbo headers:mrgreen:
Those headers look awsome! nice setup. Do you have the turbo braced at all? Are they 16g?
ok forgive my ignorance, but this started out as a TT or Na?
The car started its life as a na 300zx, swapped in a tt motor in 2005 and the madness began
