she is a garret, bb GT and will be supporting around 450 to the wheels. No other info than that will be given until it is done :) Was going to go with a 4" inlet but install only permits the thin wall 3" for now.. man it is going to rock over the supercharger setup I was running at a puny "in comparison" 250whp hahaha.

The turbo is not that small really, but also not that big as I chose it specifically for my 2.4L engine. Like I said the goal is around 450 to the wheels "500+ crank" / 350-375 on pump gas at 2900 lbs which is not bad...... and this turbo supports the 500+ crank but is at the edge of the compressor map even though it has been tested at around 500-550whp peak. **** good bb turbo which will provide wicked fast responce as I am running a .63 turbine and it is matched very well for my engine size...

On another note, that is 100% exactly why I bought a tc, super cheap out of the box, very very nice car even if it cost $22K it would still be worth it... all in all I have spent probably less than you have on your toy, except mine is 100% built to my specs and my style.

Read above, going for 300 wheel on 101 octain for testing, then doing the full build with some of the parts listed above, then going for 450. 300whp on a tc is very hard to do with stock internals and would probably not be that reliable *LOL* But going to test more on it.

Yes I agree, you can get them for less than $30k out the door.

I hope they just leave the looks of the G8 alone (leave it the way Holden has it) and not put some stupid cheap ugly looking Pontiac bumpers on it like they did with the GTO.

We were working on a buddies truck today, a 99 Ford F350 crew cab dually, with a 7.3, all the banks stuff plus some other "minor" things, runs very well, but he wanted more power so he got a new turbo, around an 88mm i think it, I dont know the exact size of it, but I know its 3 times larger than the stock one, cant wait till its ready to run, it would already get sideways at the drop of a hat :drool:

Turbo work is expensive... mine is adding up on the Civic and I'm only shooting for around 225 WHP at this stage in the build (T-25 Greddy Turbo). Of course I'm building the bottom end for later abuse when I want to get a bigger turbo... Crower Rods and custom JE Pistons with polished, balanced, and bearing matched crankshaft.

agreed, if most people knew the cost to setup a system right, they would run away wallet in hand. The turbo itself while the focus point actually ends up being a small portion of the system cost. I am working with a local company with years of experience building some of the baddest cars in Az. I will be posting pics after nopi phx this weekend, the setup is flat out crazy and the fab work is wicked. No corners cut, no bs. Downside is I have gotten less than 3-4 hours of sleep a night for quite awhile now :( Guess it will all be worth it haha.

Oh yeah, it is coming :) I have to wait for the specs to be released by the company I am working with. They are designing kit useing my car as a base. I have been working hand in hand with them since December on the details and build. They have been killer to work with "known them for years" and there skills fab wise are amazing. After looking at the setup in depth when it was all setup, I had to laugh as it made the other turbokits for the tC look so cheap and mass produced.

I see so many kit makers cutting corners to save a dime like useing a 45 degree silicone elbow to make a bend instead of actually building a pipe to match, or going with cheap *** china turbos, or useing steel intercooler pipe *LOL* that always cracks me up. Everything has to flow visually, functionally and still be daily driver reliable. You have to hit on all points in order to go FTW~!

This is testing all on the stock motor useing others testing results running up to 14 psi on stock internals. For now I plan to run her on the street @ 10 psi which is what I ran the supercharger at. She is simply sick at this boost level.

When the motor build is complete I will be turning her up to around 18-20 psi which will net around 500whp or so. Also turning up the redline to 7500 with the new head and internals. Should make for a very fun interesting tc hahaha.

Here is the best dyno run. More tuning to come with a little more agressive settings.

if they would've made the tC's rwd i would've bought one long ago. i dont even want to think about all that power in a fwd car. but it would be a blast dusting unsuspecting porsche owners on the highway.

and of course i have to give props for all the hard work, time, and effort that took. whats it drive like? is it still civil or has it lost some of its manners?

Actually with the larger turbo it is VERY civil until you nail it then all hell breaks loose. This car was never meant to be FWD with 300+whp hahaha. Cannot wait until 450-500whp. It tears it up hardcore when it comes into boost. When off boost you would never know it was even boosted *LOL* Drives like a stock tc. Does not bounce into and out of boost all the time like a stock turbo setup or a small frame turbo setup.

What I love most is how hard the torque comes in... when boost comes on it simply rips the tires apart in 1st - 3rd and pulls hard all the way to redline in 5th gear. never lets up.

Here are some more pics...

Doing Mahle pistons, Carillo rods, Ferrea top end, extrude hone, balance shafts removed, lsd, reinforced axles.. blah blah blah.. basically all around fun in a car that looks like it could not outrun a civic si haha.

yeah if it is a short street race the tc will stomp on an si as the tc stock runs around 150ft lbs at the wheels which is dyno proven and about 145hp. But on a longer race past 3rd an si will eat the tc. Redline on the tc is approx 6300 stock. Will find out what she can do in the 1320 tonight if the weather holds up.

Wahahahaha last night was funny as sin. I could not nail traction in 1st - 3rd even running only 7 psi of boost. Did not matter even if I ran 1/2 throttle. I was consistantly ****** running a 2.45-2.5 60" and about a 13.8-14.0 @ 106mph hahaha. My 330' was horrible as well and only reason I could nail the 106 was the top end power in the car. That was on 235 falken azenis at 18 psi in the tires haha. Car is wicked from a roll, but we do not race from rolls usually haha.

Well next step is I am ordering in a HKS black limited boost controller so I can turn it down to 5psi in 1st @ 2nd then run full boost in 3rd and up. Only hope I have without running uber slicks.. car is hilarious to drive. The new boost controller is the only hope I have of being able to drive it when the motor build is done haha.

Guess I sound like a supra owner "this car is vicious from a roll" hahaha.

Lets say you can pull a 1.9 60', you should be right in the 13-12.8's on the power level you are on now. Of course adding more power will just cause more problems with your 60'.

Actually my car is a show car, and has won 1st's at many large national events such as NOPI, Hot import nights etc... Daily driver it is not.

So what, I show the car, I drive the **** out of it and it is a total blast. Took me a long time to get this car were it is and I love it. Just because it does not look like a mad max aussie pile of **** and lay down 1000whp or KW whatever your stupid system is, does not matter.

And for handeling it / driving it are no issue. It is laying down the power down low that is a massive challenge and would also be for you period. Your defintily no pro racer yourself so stop acting all high and mighty. And yeah, you come across like a total dickhe*d that does not know cars as well as he touts. Just because you got your hands on an aristo does not mean anything *LOL*.. Just thought you would like to know cocksuck*er with your backwards spinning toilets. Even your **** is confused were it is going.

I have owned many AWD and RWD cars, never had problems laying power down like this. But in all honesty, sure as hell makes it fun to drive!

You did not see the 330' as it was spinning through 3rd *LOL* was almost 7 seconds. I should be around 5.5-5.8 haha I can shave a second and a half off of that so I would say I could be in the mid 12's. I bet ya a steak at texas roadhouse than when she hooks I will be around 110-112mph on the stock 4 bangin guts :) Not bad for a turd slow lil scion. Motor is holding together well and car feels great. Will get things figured out soon. Main issue is at 3K rpm I am at around 190ft lbs which is nothing special, then 1K rpm later she smacks 300ft lbs. That is when traction goes out the window in an instant. **** tail dragger. Think I will go back to mr2's or subies haha.

I did see one car I dug big time. It is the lexus sportcross, basically an is300 wagon. Man I could see that on staggard rims with supra drivetrane and a built 2jz at around 800whp. Would be SWEET. I love the audi wagons build like that.

Thats actually very true. Usually on bad runs w/ bad 60' and good runs, the difference is only a few MPH. Although then you should be up around 108-110. @ that speed w/ traction, 12's is cake. Hell, I've done 13.0's before in my blown SHO @ 106mph, so you'll be good to go.

- Two tone work to be completed. Top of car is going black / blue pearl. Bottom the oem flint mica, totally repainted fresh.

- Smoke / skulls in the smoke around the graphics...


I have on of the best airbrush artists in the country working on it "The KID" from autoartstudio.com , you would have to see it in person to understand the depth of the work and how 3d it looks. Amazing. Looks like a peice of metal sitting about 2" in front of the paint. Totally bad arse.. THIS IS ALL HAND AIRBRUSH! NOT A STICKER *lol*

Design was a little "tribal" for me, but I really like it and I wanted the artist to use his vision of what it should look like. Will post finished pics soon.

AND if you read my post, you would see I was talking about the OLDER cars, SUCH AS "camaros, corvettes, chargers, challengers" Which all had V8's, or come with V8s in the newer base. I myself will not drive a rear wheel because of road conditions here in the winter, and the lack of weight in the back of the car.

You said REAL MEN DRIVE MUSCLE.

My woody wagon has more balls than your "monte SS". My mother drives the same car as you.

I'm sure your car gets better MPG, but that has **** to do with power.

And my car owns in the snow. I've never been stuck. I see FWD cars in ditches all the time.

Please, keep being wrong.

I guarantee I can beat your car and use less gas in the process.

And who cares if a FWD car is stuck in a ditch? How do you know how fast the person was driving?

Want a cookie for not being stuck in the snow? I havent either, so does that mean I get one too?

like I said, with the aftermarket, which I am pretty sure there isnt for a station wagon, I could easily put more power into my car, but I dont have the money which brings us back to MPGs, Gas is expensive now... and you kinda need it to get the horse power out of your car

im stuck in the snow cause i am lazy, havent shoveled my driveway in weeks. when the clearance of your car is about 6 inches and the snow is 8 inches deep that causes problems imo.

i made it 3/4 of the way(40 feet) though, but it must be because i drive a POS FWD car or i am a ****** driver:(

I want to do that, do a top swap and somehow find one of those whipple superchargers, get cat back exhaust, headers, high flow cat, CAI, turbo, and a better transmission to handle the power. Also gonna need a new, performance programmed PCM.

heres a vid of the whipple, it sounds crazy...

I never said I was faster. YOU brought snow driving into it, not me. Have a cookie if it'll make you feel better.

My car is essentially a heavier Impala SS, there's plenty of aftermarket, lawl. I can get 26 out of my wagon on the highway, not great, but not horrible.

YOU SAID "A real man drives MUSCLE." Yet you drive a na 3800 fwd monte.

Not even CLOSE to muscle.

never said anything about his car, simply stated that a man should drive muscle. His comes in the form of performance upgrades to get power, unlike V8's and V6's which have larger blocks and produce more power. I never once trashed his car. :fyi: Me stating Monte Carlo SS is because Im proud to drive what I drive. I paid for it myself, which was difficult as it is being in HS.

And who cares what I say anyway, its my opinion and I'm entitled to it. You can be big and bad in your station wagon, and call out the 3800 series engine, its your opinion. Yes, I drive a N\a 3800, but what part of I DONT HAVE ANY MONEY TO DO ANYTHING TO IT do you not understand? it CAN be muscle with the right parts and upgrades.

The wagon has a chevy small block V8 right? whats it got? sounded like it had exhaust... And I'm sure the extra room in the wagon is gonna be helpful when puttin in sound equipment.

That one is NA, probably a top end rebuild with nitrous, rear end, and drag radials.

I know he drives his family to the track in it.

I can't remember, I'm trying to find the vid of the 8 second blown wagon.

Here's a pic, I'll post a vid when I find it.

haha YEAH, 3800's can pack a punch with some upgrades. I want to get the ram air for the monte carlo, and black racing stripes, but unfortunately, I dont get paid much as a lifeguard in high school. I want to get the black diamond headlights too. So many upgrades, so little time.

But not many people can say their engines last longer than the 3800s

I would definately get some more grippy tires and possibly a built tranny before you decide to step up to the black racing stripes.

it's been covered. Im talkin about with upgrades, or at least an L67, The newer 06s and 07s do have 8s in the SS though.

The tranny is too expensive for me, and the tires are comin after these wear down. I dont see a need to get another set of tires before these are used up. I dont have enough to get another set of rims and winter tires either... Its gonna be stock for a while, and for a first car, it has plenty of power for now, but I do have the ability to upgrade depending how long I have the car. That is also another reason for being stock, first car, dont need to get into an accident and **** away all the money I put into it.

And I think that is the first time I've ever seen a station wagon on two wheels like that... ****...

i jus hate the FTW drive when you mash the gas on those 3.8's. Im pretty much wrestling with the steering wheel on a quick take off. But i guess you get use to it after a while. Indeed the 3.8's last pretty long
