So, turbo has finally arrived. We are just waiting on Wiseco, to finish our custom forged stroker pistons, to be able to get her back together again.
Its a GT3076R with a billet compressor wheel and a SS Tial exhaust turbine housing. I am running SS exhaust valves. And yes I will agree that this has taken quite a bit out of the pocket book, but its worth it! I've learned a lot throughout the build.

No wrapping, the manifold is ceramic coated. It does produce quite a bit of heat but all major components which are affected by high temps are protected by multiple heat shielding. Furthermore i am going to be developing new ways of cooling in order to reduce the temperature in the engine bay.
hey I started a new thread on Audizine if you wanna keep track of the progress.
So she is finally up and running. At wastegate pressure, N75 disconnected, of 25psi and mild timing with no meth we are at 380lb-ft/380whp. Decided not to go to full boost until springtime. It has plenty of power up to 6k RPM where we set the Rev limiter. So here's a short list of things done this time.
Custom AMD Stroker 82.5mm Wiseco Pistons
FP HTA3076R w/Billet compressor wheel and Tial SS exhaust housing
Custom 2.5in piping from turbo to Modified APR FMIC
Custom 3in piping from IC to BBK 70mm Throttle body
Custom 3L Intake Manifold

Beautiful setup! But I have a question: with so much goodness, how come you're still running the original AEB ignition setup?
