  1. #21
    The air squeezer is here. Here are a few highlits:


    Optional 048 turbine housing. The one installed is an 036.

    The STS oil pump and the TiAL 38mm wastegate.

    What I have of the kit so far. Still waiting for the pipes, clamps, wiring harness, hoses and the BOV.

    Squeeze side.

    Turbine side.


    Much fabrication to begin.
    Bye!

    The Turbo came in today. I'm picking it up after work and I'll post some pics of the kit later tonight.

    Funny you say that, because mine were damaged as well, all 4 were bent, and 3 had their surface badly scuffed by gravel. I did contact Forgeline, and they said they can repair them even if they don't make them anymore, but I ended up bringing them to a local shop that repairs wheels. 400$ later they looked like new, or better since he polished them real good to a mirror finish and clear coated them. That was 3 years ago, and they still look that way. You might be able to recover those boat anchors!

    What's the jam on the turbo?

    Progress is lookin good!

    I've thought about it. And I would have to anyway because these are only 17x7.5. I'm looking at going 17x8.5 and 17x9.5.
    My other issue is that I don't have a good contact for wheel stuff yet.

    Thanks! My plan is to use 1" square tube for the main support structure and gusset and brace as necessary. Thanks for the advice!

    Me too, I wish my box was braced a bit more. Another winter project...

    Progress is looking great! What is the fluid pump for?

    I think he's mounting the turbo remotely, and that's the oil 'return' pump.

    ^^ I meant to ask that when I saw the STS stuff, why'd you decide to go with a remote mount? And where are you planning on mounting it?

    Orion is right. That pump is the oil return pump for the turbo. The whole idea behind the STS system is to get the turbo out of the engine bay reducing under hood temps (and that also allows you to turbocharge virtually ANY car). Also, I get some ambient intercooling with the charge pipe being under the vehicle so I can use a smaller intercooler up front. The pipes are going to present some problems when I put together the flat bottom, though. I'll need to channel around the charge and exhaust pipes. So, that'll be fun.

    The turbo will be mounted in a box behind the driver seat. I'll have a naca duct in the drivers rear quarter window with tubes coming into the top of the box so I have cool air flowing across the turbo. Another Naca duct will will be placed in the passenger rear quarter window with tubes coming down into an air box feeding the compressor.

    Or some such.

    It's a weld up kit from FatMan Racing. I can put together a kit for you, if you want one.

    Here's what we used for this kit:
    3/4" .100 wall main shaft
    flaming river u-joint for the mid shaft joint
    aircraft grade hardware on the u-joint
    chrome moly inner housing - gets tack welded to the outer housing
    chrome moly outer housing - gets weled to the frame supports
    nylon bushings center the shaft in the inner housing

    Also, we use the stock lower u-joint and the lower end of the stock shaft. We machine the stock lower shaft to fit inside the new 3/4" lower shaft. Then just pick out your favorite quick disconnect, etc.

    It's a pretty simple, universal setup.

    im kind of interested, not sure if ill get the wilwood pedals around my stock column. its for a corolla and the only thing im really not sure how im gonna do yet is get the column connected to the rack. i was thinking of just welding the old splined part of the column to the new column and putting a sleeve over that and welding it for extra strengh but if theres a simpler safer way im all about it.

    That's what we did here. We took the stock splined part of the shaft and turned it down to interference fit into the new shaft (3/4", .100 wall), slipped it in and welded it up. Good and strong.

    Turbo is mounted

    So, my buddy Johnny came over today and we managed to get the turbo mounted in the back seat (yes, we put it there on purpose). We also got the exhaust done up to the turbo and the first part of the exhaust past the turbo. It will at least give you an idea where the exhaust will exit the vehicle.

    Some photos:












    If you can tell what you're looking at here, then you'll know where the exhaust is going to exit the car.

    That's all I have for now.

    Oh, forgot to tell you...the original owner and driver of this car, Ed Shairbaum, gave me a call last week (we've never met. His daughters boyfriend saw the post and told him about it) and he has the Moton shocks that he used when he ran the car, so I'm going to pick those up from him. I understand they are pretty amazing shocks.

    Bye.

    I'm going to ceramic coat the entire exhaust and wrap it with Thermo Tec. I'm going to wrap the turbo in a blanket, as well. And I'll be building a box arounf the turbo and insulating that so it doesn't heat me up in teh drivers compartment.

    Your pedal set looks good! Looks like you're modifying the trans tunnel...

    you could say that haha, z32 trans is the plan on my sr. we've gotten my friends sr to fit in his corolla with a assload of hammering but no way the z32 tranny will fit, and my motor also sits farther back than my friends with this swap.
