My GT42R st185 project

Well, I got my beast of a new turbo in the mail at 7:30 PM Friday night... This thing is HUGE! Pictures do it no justice. Just think 37 lbs with the compressor housing being nearly a foot across in length. Just got back home and decided I'd take a few pics (sorry, couldn't find my nice camera this very second, so had to use the Wal-Mart special, so the pics kinda suck). I'll try to take a few more with a better camera when I get a chance. Basically wanted to give you a comparison of size... The first pic is showing the turbo in comparison to my spare .82 A/R turbine housing for my GT35r which has a 3" outlet. And the Coke can comparison is pretty much self explanatory... :P

It works if you post a direct link to the image not a php page requesting the image :) Like this:

That is truely a BFT! 8)

I have seen NoShoe's setup on the mr2oc. Will yours be similar?
Are you going to run more rpm's?

good luck on the build.

What's my goal? I'm not totally sure yet. Just know I would like to be able to run mid 10's on a full interior, full weight All-Trac. The only thing being ditched so far will be the AC. As far as links to setups of people running the GT42r, here are a few MR2's running GT42r's, but as stated above, the only alltrac that's pubicly stated running one is that drag car in Russia. I know No Shoes will be running one in his MR2 with a custom kit Kris at KO is doing for him, and you can see pics on koracing.net here: http://koracing.net/gallery.php?folder=46 . As far as other MR2's, you can go to mr2oc and go to the MR2 Dyno Registry and see the dyno video of Jeffrey Burke's 808 WHP MR2 on a 42r.


BTW, I'll be ordering a manifold tomorrow for this beast, and should have first pics of it bolted up under my hood in 8-10 weeks... :P

More updates to come. :)

Some sick numbers ur aiming at! I have to say I like the idea of keeping it kind of a street car. :) This really is a nice project to follow.

Keep up the good work!
