Magnum's ST185 project

Postby magnum » Thu Aug 07, 2008 10:48 pm

I started with a stock 90 GT-FOUR
Image
added Volk GT-N 17x8+31mm front 17x8+25mm rear wheels with 215/40R17 Falken Azenis RT-615 tires, HKS Silent hi-power exhaust and Tein SS coilovers.
Image
Image
Next I decided to add some more power.
Image
Garrett GT-3271 turbo, Tial 38mm wastegate, K&N filter with bell mouth, and parts for me to build a custom twin scroll turbo manifold.

Image
Parts to build a custom surge tank intake manifold with a 70mm throttle body.
Image
Spearco intercooler with pipe for me to make a FMIC kit.
Image
Speed source TFFR, Aeromotive FPR and lines for the fuel rail, Walbro 255 fuel pump, 750cc RC injectors.
Image
TTE head gasket, ARP studs, ATS cam gears GSC S1 cams and Engle valve springs.
Image
EXEDY Hyper Single Clutch
Image
Various parts from Speed source and a m300 wide band.
Image
Parts for me to build a down pipe and mid pipe.
I also bought a ViPec EMS but have not received it yet.
I will update as I complete each part of my build.

Looking good man! I'm still not convinced to go Vi-Pec over Autronic, but I'd love to hear your findings.. Good luck with the project, seems you've planned a nice setup! 8)

I will very much so follow this thread all the way through and beyond! 8)

Also, have you begun building your intake and exhaust manifolds? I am very interested in both!
Aloha,
Evan

I have to get my garage wired so I can plug in my welder, hopefully I can get it done asap.

I like it a lot. It's not loud and obnoxious, just a nice low db note.

I like the wheels, do you know the weight? Car color is my favorite too, guess what color mine is :wink:

I'd recommend the RC front bar, will give you much more space work with.

Anticipating feedback on the vi-pec!

They are 18LBS a piece. Believe it or not but I don't like the RC front bar. I like the stock one I have but would like a lip to improve the looks a bit.

Very nice collection of parts. Can you give any more info on the gt32? From what I can guess from reading up on it from garrett's site, it is only a mild upgrade and supports less than the gt30, t3/t4 etc. Is that right?

This is a link that magnum gave me a while back. It is an MR2 with a GT32 as well.

http://www.mr2oc.com/showthread.php?t=306348

I have one currently installed and I think it pulls quite a bit harder than stock (only by comparison with Nigel's car) in the upper end. There is a slight lag rather than somewhat 'instant' boost. It is signigicantly larger than a CT26, but nothing very large at all.
Aloha,
Evan

Good choice, looks like a very nice sized turbo for some stockish spool with a heap more on top.

Yes that is why I choose it. It fits in the gap between the GT28RS and the TD06-20G.
