Default Single turbo 02 GS430

I'm just getting fired up here on Club Lexus. I just finished posting my pictures of my single turbo build on my 2002 Lexus GS430. If any one has any questions I'll be more than happy to answer them. I've learned so much in this crash course of doing something to a car that was never meant to have been tampered with. But now when I punch it, the sound of the turbo spooling up like rockets accelerating he the tial blow off valve blasting open is worth every penny and countless hours.

didn't go twins one because that's twice as much money. plus I didn't want to mess with the location of the factory ecu on the drivers side. it just worked out easier that way. and the build Is done. ive been driving the car for three weeks now waiting to get an appt. for the dyno tune at d3 performance in Houston tx. so far so good. yes its been little things here and there but for a daily driver its gotten to work and back every day.

What kind of numbers are you looking for?

I'd like to hear how that F/IC-8 works out.

Not too sure I like the design but we will see how it performs.

A few questions:

- What turbo is that and what boost level / HP level are you shooting for?

- Are there brackets to support the turbo or is it just the pipes supporting it?

- Is there any reason you decided to have the exhaust run that way (basically running through the one manifold) when you could have used a merge instead - just for ease of construction?

- Were does an air filter fit?

I'm very interested in seeing more of your build, please post more pics.
