My GT42R st185 project

Postby tjdouble07 » Sat Jan 12, 2008 8:41 am

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:

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!
