Hey Guys,
I am looking to get some big #'s out of my SR. I was looking into the Greddy/Trust turbo upgrade kits like the TD06 or the T67. Has anyone used these and what other thing will be needed? I know the Watsegate position will need to be moved becuase of the steering and I know some of the other stuff, but looking for someone that has upgraded thier SR and what kind of set up are you running?

Thanks

If you talk to Greaser he could beable to help you out some. I know he has a HKS GT3037 turbo and I believe the last time he posted he was pushing about 330hp with only a metal head gasket I believe. The turbo it's self is good to about 475Hp or 400-425 depending of trim etc. Me I'm thinking of going with the HKS GT 2835 its able to support a little over 400HP at about 1.1bar with boost hitting at around 3500rpm and thats with cams, headgasket, fuel pump and injectors. Hope this help a little.

You'll need:

Turbo Kit
Injectors, fuel pump, fuel management/tuning
Upgrade MAS Z32
Metal Headgasket
High performance valvesprings *optional*

That's it!

320rwhp with log manifold and HKS GT3037 Stock head gasket.

Greddy/HKS/Apexi all make turbo kits for the SR. Dont see why they wouldnt work, only the downpipe may need to be custom made to clear steering knuckle. To get 350rwhp i'd say get some JWT cams or HKS cams and a greddy or HKS turbo kit. Or go custom with a GT2835 or bigger if you can handle the lag. Money is the limit on hp.

What hp can the SR's internals take?

After chatting with Sam a bit, I think I'm going with a Greddy as soon as I found out if I can get away with JUST a headgasket to fix my current smoking problem.

I and others have put down 397-409whp and 20-24.5psi on a stock *DE* with the right turbo/fuel/timing and they have been STONE reliable...in fact I asked the the guy with the highest mileage car (over 100,000 boosting since 60K) when they were going to build a motor and his reply was..."Well figured when we blow this one up we would build another but that was over 20,000 miles go. LOL http://www.freshalloy.com/

The motors are stong, but like anything if you abuse it and detonate it you will destroy it quickly.

The weakness would be the stock cast pistons. At 400whp and big boost, a short run of detonation would most likely break the ring lands. Use race fuel and/or water injection to prevent this from happening and your motor will live.

Who told you that? The SE-R guys have been running up to 28-29lbs of boost on the stock head gasket with no troubles so far. I ran 24.5psi with no problems for two years.

The stock head gasket is *technically* metal if you look at it. Not fully metal like an HKS but it is a metal gasket.

So has anyone every had experience with a Greddy/Trust Turbo kit? My plans are one of the Greddy kits, NISMO injectors, Apexi S-AFC, Ect..... Can I run this set up with out having to get a stand alone computer and just use the AFC to controll it? What injectors are you guys running?

As for clutch, what clutch are you guys running? I have the ACT and JUN flywheels right now, but expect I Will have to upgrade. We just started carrying a brand called Star and they have 4 stages for the SR. Has anyone every heard for them? Thanks for all the help.

i have read nice reports on blitz active clutch kit. single disc is said to be good up to 300ps worth of torque http://www.freshalloy.com/ and it is expandable as they offer a kit that turns the single to twin for application requiring increased clutch surface.
not cheap.

there are other clutch manufacturers that offer systems suitable for big power (or torque http://www.freshalloy.com/ ) but i have never come accross "star clutch".

inadequate clutch can lead to shattered disc, damaged bellhousing, perhaps chopped off toe or two, blown engine etc, and as one can imagine, none of them are pleasant to say the least.

along with a heavier duty clutch upgrade, i have noticed recommendation for heavy duty clutch pedal bracket, clutch fork, cylinders and braded hydraulic hose.

a clutch travel limiting gadget is nice for precision footwork.
as most of you stick shifters know, you don't have to extend your left foot all the way to the firewall each time you shift.
an adjustable bracket-like gadget is installed on the pedal to limit the amount of travel so one can kick the pedal to the limit which is where the shifting takes place, and let go. kick it again for the next shift, without over kicking the pedal. neat eh?

Enjuku, if you want info on this setup, contact your local specialists (Titan Motorsports).

Enjuku did you ever get any info on the star clutch, any reviews yet on it...I like the stage 3 and the fact that its carbon fiber is nice...

I'm tall enough that extending my foot all the way is easy, unless I'm slouching. I have more trouble w/ having room for my feet when not on the gas http://www.freshalloy.com/ (but arms are right length &gt; chair is in right position)

Streetpower.... We just started carrying the Star clutch line. We are very impressed so far with the quality we have seen. We have only sold a few of the Star clutches so far, so we do not have any reviews on them. The only thing we have are the Stages and the torque capacities. Here are the stages for the SR and KA clutches.

SR Stage I - 360 ft/lb
SR Stage 2 - 399 ft/lbs
SR Stage 3 - 469 ft/lbs
SR stage 4 - 477 ft/lbs
KA Stage 1 - 264 ft/lbs
KA stage 2 - 300 ft/lbs
KA stage 3 - 347 ft/lbs
KA Stage 4 - 357 ft/lbs

The Carbon Fiber stage 3's is what really impressed us. Star upgrades the disks with its clutches. Let me know if you guys might be interested in trying out a Star clutch and giving a review on it...we can probably work out a deal. email me at ken@enjukuracing.com if anyone is.

Does anyone know what computer/electronic upgrades would need to be used with the Greddy T-67 kit I am think of?

Electronic upgrades needed:

1) EBC
2) Fuel Management you have the options of:
* Apexi Power FC (Optional: Speed Density conversion, so no need for Z32 MAS if that's what you plan to do)
* HKS F-Con V Pro
* JWT ROM tune (if you plan to use 550cc injectors) with SAFC
* HKS VPC w/GCC or Apexi SAFC with 550cc chip base program (no need for Z32 MAS in this case).
3) Z32 MAS

What ever you decide to do, the important part is to dial everything in on dyno tuning.

Good luck!

Ford 2.3 guys love those Star clutches.. their turbo motor puts out a lot of tire shreddin' torque and some of 'em spray also - so must be a stout clutch. Good price too.
