View Full Version : what i hope to accomplish over the winter

12-15-2009, 06:33 PM
so after talking about this for a couple years im finally getting all the parts together to get it done, hopefully will have it all ready to go by spring time. anyway, on to the pics.
the little snail il be using
the IC i will be running
manifold i will be using(will be making a brace for it of course so that turbo doesnt cause it to break lol)
what just got here in the mail yesterday:
fresh rc 1000cc injectors. just sent out to RC to be cleaned and recalibrated so they are FRESH.
turbo xs RFL BOV
basically all i need to do is finish up the charge piping and do the oil feed and return lines.
still need to decide what motor this will be going on as well. but that will depend on the money flow over the winter. would like to have it on the semi built motor but if not it will go on the ls for the time being
that is all for now :twisted:

That TurboXS RFL BOV looks different than the one I had...earlier version maybe? Whats the specs on the turbo? HP goals?

12-15-2009, 08:09 PM
yeah its a little different than the one my brother has as well. im guessing its just a different version but im not sure. turbo is an hx 35. il search for specs and post them up here shortly. what motor this setup goes onto will depend the power goal. if its the motor thats semi built i would like to do 400-450whp. if its just the stock ls somewhere close to 300 will be good.

looks good so far.. just one concern..

is that a blurr manifold? I have heard some negative reviews about those.. If you are definitely planning on upwards of 400 I would try and see if you can snag a new mani.. other than that good luck with your build

i heard that too but there was a similar build with the same turbo and that manifold on HT. thats where i got the idea for the brace. but we will see. i would prefer a ramhorn manifold but like i said money will decide how far it gets power wise. i appreciate the info tho man. gives me some more decisions to make lol

No problem man, My buddy has a log style manifold on his b16 (something like spoolin performance/RC autoworks/Go autoworks) and hes making well over 350, probably around 400..

Yeah, a ramhorn would be more efficient and everything because of the design but what im trying to get at is you cant go wrong with a log manifold... as long as it isnt cast... like you said; it comes down to money..

well since i havent updated this in a while thought id snap some pics of the progress today
bought a built gsr bottom end for 500 bucks. eagle rods, JE pistons, block gaurd, arp headstuds and main studs. only problem is the cylinder wall has a scratch so it will have to be taken apart and fixed. but i figure for 500 i still got a pretty good deal on it. anyway, heres some pics:
grex oil filter relocator
with the head and skunk2 mani on
still need to find the cam caps. couldnt find them earlier. my dad better not have thrown them away when he was cleaning up stuff in the garage or im gonna be pissed lol
