Default My Turbo Build Complete.....For Now! ;)

It is together and running.....

Dyno'd 295 WHP @ 6.8 PSI last Monday on 91 octane and with it being 108* here in Arizona.

http://members.***.net/acmeturbo/dyno062110.pdf

Here are the final pics:









Here are the specs:
SRT 2.75 Turbo Kit
Mishimoto Radiator and Thermostat
Polished turbo compressor housing, intake manifold & throttle body
HPC coated manifold, turbine housing, downpipe, mid pipe and dump tube
ACT 6 Puck Sprung Hub Disk & Extreme Pressure Plate
Factory W55

Future Plans:
I did not install the thicker headgasket or ARP head studs since I have a GS300 motor that I will be building.

nice car but that is a lot of gauges. no way you can monitor all those gauges.

a few quick suggestions would be to get rid of that breather filter on the exhaust side and go back to a hose or maybe a catch can before you start a oil fire. also try to turn the turbo intake pipe so its not directly behind the radiator fans sucking in hot air
