    Thread: Official Big Turbo Engine Bay Thread!

    1. 12-04-2008 10:26 PM #1
      With all of the affordable turbo kits out now, there are many options for going BT. It seems like everyone has jumped on the BT fun, and lately there has been lots of interest in piecing together kits too. I think a thread where people post just 1 or 2 good engine bay pictures could help a lot of people out. It can show them different ideas for intake manifold/throttle body placements, intercooler piping setups, top mounted/bottom mounted turbo setups, intake setups, catch cans, batteries, etc etc.
      Official? not really.
      Please do not post unless you have a picture, that way the thread will only be a couple pages, and very informative (like the dyno thread)

      Kinetic manifold, 3071r, 4" to 3" 45 degree reducer to 3" intake. 12lb deka battery with room for the intercooler piping to be run that way (much shorter than going down between the intake manifold/battery. windshield wiper reservoir removed for more room for intercooler piping/ BOV.

      again, please do not post unless you have a picture. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      heres my all go no show gti that i personally built with the help of a few texers and my local shop helped me with some of the portwork. running the new kinetic kit with a gt35r upgrade with unitronic 830 software, rmr intake manifold ported built head good for 8500rpms, I.E. rods with factory pistons tops her off. have no idea what kind of power im making yet. ive been waiting to get my ecu bug free. what i can tell you is she burn 1st thru 3rd at 24 psi with water meth (75 to 80% meth) and timing increased 6* so i lowered the boost down to 20 psi for daily driving.
      *EDIT* apr turbo back exhaust. 3" to 2.5"
      nothing fancy but here she is
