lol speaking of the "budget build" i would be interested in knowing how many people have attempted this so called budget turbo build. Just a thought
good to see it coming along
strut bar is cool, but adding understeer to a naturally understeering car. use a lower tie bar, and weld in a brace from the outside of the strut tower to chassis. works wonders.

I'm only into mine for 1500 or so, maybe a bit more. Problem is not saving a few bucks on the initial build, but rather not getting excessive buying little things here and there adding power after the fact.
On mine 18psi feels oh_so_****ing good, but now if I'm not careful it slips a bit. So there goes another 600 bucks on a clutch setup for an 02A, but then who knows what's next when 18psi gets boring.
I am currently $2500 deep. Originally had a$2000 budget so I'm sitting in the budget categories still. Its the small unexpected stuff that adds up! If u are resourceful u can make it happen!
Since i have not posted up anything lately..dont worry it will come! I have decided to post another cool project that myself and my supra buddy had put together for my 2007 cbr600rr race bike!
I will be posting up my Strut and exhaust fabrications update soon.
2007/2008 CBR600RR Exhaust Build:
Take a look. Myself and another memeber put this bad boy together a while back for my 2007 cbr600rr race bike- thought i would post it up! My buddy is the welding master, i am simply the sherpa!
Exhaust is SS steel with 4-1 header and 2.5" after collector with V-Band connection (yes on a bike haha). We also made CNC machined header clips (hold header to engine).This was matted to a 2.5" two borthers exhaust. Simply a for fun test go at an exahust build. Made less power down low and moved the power band way high- gained few WHP after 9000rpm. Ended up taking it off and running a two borthers header back as it yeilded better mid range which is what i needed. Never the less...and amazing build and learning experience.
Custom 4-1 Collector:
Sooo Fresh and Sooo Clean:
Comments are welcome!
Downpipe DIY coming this sunday! Upper stress bar is in the machine shop hopefully ready for sunday install. Then fluids and first start/tune coming soon!
P.S Anyone form Ontario looking for a great exhaust/exhaust parts, i.c piping suppliers, tubing and much more..check out Tri Canada in Mississauga. Super cheap and great service- they are a manufacturign company who produces a massive amount of S.S fittings, piping, v-bands, flanges and such.
Quick update for anyone interested. About 90% done the DP, just waiting on one more cut and the addition of a V Band flange. Updates will happen accordingly.
- 2 90deg 304 stainless 2.5" pipes
- 4' of 304 ss straight pipe at 2.5"
- 1 4" flex pipe 304 stainless 2.5"
- 1 3.5" straight pipe in 2.5"
- 5 bolt ss flange
- TIG Welder
Step by Step: (Applicable for 2.0 16v 9a with 034 manifold and t3/t4 60trim)
Note: I have already doen the calculations for you. This should be a direct fit for the application listed above.
- Cut your 1st 90deg albow down 1.75"- straight cut (yes this will now make your perfect 2.5" a slight oval)
- Tack your 4" flex pipe to your newly formed 90deg elbow
- Mount your 5 bolt flange to your existing turbo.
- Test fit your new piece by hand and insure this clears your WG and shift linkage(if running 020 tranny) and get a friend to mark the angle with a perm marker.
Cut a 3.5" straight piece of your 2.5" piping and tack to to the end of your 4" flex pipe
- Tack your peiace via TIG
- Grab your 2nd 90deg 2.5" elbow and run it in line at a 90deg angle to your outlet. Mark via perm marker and tig.
Note: When mounted this peice must run flat the rest of your pipeing moving toward the back of your vehical. Insure you test fit this peice and mark the angle you will need to cut. If you do not cut this angle your exist angle will be into your chassis.
Note: I will post this cut angle when it is complete. Should be done for monday and i will have pics fo the fitment + v band weld.
Downpipe almost complete. Thsi is what it looks like so far.
Went over the tie bar- to many mk1-mk2 guys are touching or tapping the bar while driving.
Super Simple DIY:
Simple wiring for you guys/gals who want to wire up your guages but are to lazy/dont want to hastle with finding your wiring- especially with alot of you running custom wiring and so on. Use your fuse box dammit!
PS: Legend for VDO Gauges..
+: Positive 12v feed wire
G: Wire to sender
Start with wiring all your guages together and leave a lead for your power source. I did the same with my grounds and grounded it to the body using a screw.
Then attach to gauges.
This is your fuse power connection- can be bought at your local hardwear store. Simple connects to the fuse of your choice. I used fuse #20 (license plate lights). Pull your #20 fuse, fill the slot with your new clip and replace the 10amp fuse into the two open slots located on the new fuse power connector. Please a second 10amp fuse into the open slot. Tuck and zip your wiring. Test- done.
Update! Well I FINISHED the car today. Worked on it for 7 hours today and added oil and coolant, primed the Turbo, checked for leaks and did some last min instals/maintenance. See below for proper (there are several different ways yes) Turbo priming. As it sits it has no exhaust just a 2.5 dp. Exhaust will be put on as soon as tune is complete. Gunna be loud until then!
Step 1:Add oil (4L w/filter change) +exhaust filter
Step 2: grab a beer
Step 3: check for leaks and inure oil feed and drain lines are tight and no kinks are found
Step 4: unplug coil connection to distributor + pull fuel pump fuse
Step 5:disconnect oil drain from oil pan and place catch can under line.
Step 6: turn engine for three 15sec intervals
Step 7: check line for oil drainage.
*repeat step 6-7 if needed until desired oil is found
Step 8-10 involve beer so I won't bother
Pics! She is awaiting tune on wed! Summer here we come!!
Comments are welcome. 5 months of work. Woot!
Did base tune on the car today with a friend of mine. Got it go idle nicely again around 14.5-15afr once warm. Starts at each turn of the key! Super loud without the exhaust (just has dp as of now).
Ended up grabbing a etx14 power sports battery from autoquest for $100. Same as the Dena ext14 just rebranded. Retrofitted the connectors and she works like a charm, even at 220cca.
Used some spare stainless to make a makeshift wastegate dump tube. It will work for now! Not bad actually. Made it in 5min literally. Its actually a spare header pipe from a old cbr600rr project-pis can be found earlier in this thread.
Street tune and video tomorro!
Here she is. 75% tuned. Just need a working VE table dammit!
Video of Idling after warm up + basic tune once I can find a way to load it!
I will post my Ms file later on. The car under acceleration sputters and looses power for some reason. Has terrible power across the board. Ve table or something must be way off. Any takers? I was using auto tune for ve as well. Made little difference..I must be way off?
I checked plugs. Bought new nkg iridium plugs gapped at .25. Check coil, distributor and wires...grrrr
my full tune file as of today..ve looks wayyyyyyy off.
Made some adjustments to the table. Look better now. Here is a screen shot. Removed the cell enrichment that was set way to high I think causing the hicupping or so says the Ms manual. So I put it too 2500 kpa/s so I won't ever kick in. They said to tune ve to near perfection before using the inrichments. Test number 3 tomoro!
75% tuned. Just need ot tune in boost. Could not do so because it had the stock sachs clutch which dident hold squat in boost. Maybe 1spi..grr!
ACT HD 4 puck Ceramic clutching going in on wednesday! Pumped tp be able to finally drive it to its full potential!
