Omg Omg Omg... Boost
 
Well... it looks like I'm just about finished with my kat project.

Yesterday I rattle-canned the IC piping, today I installed and clamped everything down. Then I started the car. It fired right up and idled perfectly. After it got warmed up, I backed it down off of the rollers and made a few passes up and down the alley....

...:D...

It was quite a new experience. Over 3 months went by without driving the car. Boost comes on at 2500, and after that, first gear comes to an end in a snap. I only drove it for a few minutes, but those few minutes will be in my memory forever.

Today was not without its share of problems, however. It came to my attention that I have a pretty massive oil leak. I saw it coming because my oil return line is pretty crappy.. I just wanted to ignore it and hope nothing would happen. Wrong I was.

Another minor problem: the bypass valve is having some hood clearance issues. It's an easy fix, but still a problem.

After fixing those two apparent problems, I'll work on fabricating the exhaust... After everything is finished, I'll toss the wideband on and see what I can do about getting good a/f.

I decided to spare you all the crappy camera phone pictures. That means I'll post up good pictures taken with a digital camera tommorow or monday. :D

exciting times.......

It sounds like you need to start a kat fund. ;)

It's actually pretty damn cheap if you can fabricate the parts.

$120 for manifold
$130 for turbo
$200 for ic, exhaust pipes
$10 for bosch bov :D
$100 for IC
$85 for injectors
$200 for safc
$100 for couplers and clamps
$100 for fuel pump
$200 for miscellaneous stuff
$300 for wideband(optional)

comes out to $1245 w/o wideband. But then you have 3 months of downtime :(

I definiely spent less than $1500 on this. and it seems like a quality setup if I do say so myself. :)

It's the regular jgs log manifold. That was the first part I bought when I decided to go kat. They were having a sale, so I couldn't pass it up. :)

crzycav86 07-01-2005 11:23 PM

I had to go searching for the link to their turbo parts(it's not linked on the main page), but I found it: http://www.jgstools.com/turbo/index2.html

I got the stage 1 log manifold. It was on sale at the time.

slideways2004 07-03-2005 09:40 PM

nice, what kind of injectors and turbo are you using? and is the i/c front-mount or side-mount

crzycav86 07-03-2005 11:48 PM

I'm using 370cc sr injectors, z31(t3) turbo, and a starion fmic.

I'll try to put up good quality pictures tommorow.


Thanks for the compliments guys. I've been really lazy about this project, and the motivation from certain members really has helped push me to finish. :)
