Ok I am going to level with you all. I always wanted to turbo a car, and the opportunity popped up earlier this week. One of the fellow 02ers posted a system in parts for sale. It is a complete system from what I understand. It was advertised with a megasquirt and boost controller that I passed on, as I have my heart set on a Haltech EFI system.
The challenge is always time. I couldn't take the car off the road for the 3-5 months to have the system fabricated for my car, so a turbo was always a distant dream. Because the setup had already been fitted to an 02, the number of tweaks that it may need would keep it off the road for perhaps a week, or not at all.
The fun part( for me) is actually getting it running correctly, as the system was installed on a roller, and then taken off never to be installed on a running motor.
It is being boxed up now, and will arrive shortly. Here are the bits and pieces included. I haven't decided to try it on my existing setup. I need to do a leakdown test, as I suspect my compression is not great. If I do install it, I would run it in a low boost mode until I get the bits organised for the bottom end.
Enjoy the pics.
P.S.. it is even dual scroll with ceramic ball bearings.
