For a little while nowI have been debaiting the altamite question, "To boost or not to boost?" After the Mutt desided to go on strike, I desided that it was time to make my desision. That being said, I am currently building a complete turbo kit to go along with my new 9:1 compression engine that I'm building from the ground up.
Currently I have the fallowing mods:
Pioneer DEH-P560 Head w/ GEX-P910XM XM System, 8" Bazooka tube w/ a Rockford Forgave sub, Alpha sonic tweeters, Alpine V-Power (MRP T-220) amp, Scotch remote start and keyless entery, leather shift boot & knob, anodized red gage bezel, custom trunk work, VIS Racing carbon fiber “Invader” hood, painted calipers (red), 20% tint, and a WW kit.
Energy Suspension “Hyper Flex Kit”, Progress springs, Intrax camber correction kit, Tokico race struts, 19mm sway bar upgrade w/ Energy Suspension bushings, rear disc break conversion, Ractive front strut tower bar& custom rear strut tower bar, Konig 16 inch “Trouble” rims w/ Toyo 205/45/16 Proxie 4’s (set of 5, Always role rite even after a flat), Cross drilled and slotted rotors (front).
The engine I am building will be running JE Pistons, eagle rods, Cryo’ed crank, one over ported head, Ported intake mani, 65mm focus central throtle body, ZXtuner UDP, AEM Alternator UDP, Ford racing red timing gears, Mega Squirt tuning, Volvo 15g turbo ( with internal waiste gate and BOV), Summit 14" slim fan, big ass FMIC from Sparco, MSD coil pack, Ford Racing Oil pump, VCT delete, APR head and main studs, stage 2 valve springs and titanium retainers, 2.5 Custom Exhaust from the Manifold to the muffler, And the Jury is still out on the boost controller. I think that covers it.
Other items to aquire while I am at this are a JayCo manual rack with a 10:1 ratio, a possable break upgrade ( front and rear), and a LSD wath a ACT clutch.
More to come,
