I would never buy an eBay turbo kit. I'd be an ebay intercooler, and manifold, but i'd never buy a turbo or wastegate from them. There's no way I'd trust my engine running off an ebay wastegate, cause if it fails, then my engine goes pop.

The minimum you'd need to turbo your car?
If you wanted a decently quick cheap setup i'd say:

-eBay bottom mount T25/T28 manifold
-SR20 T25 Turbo
-SR20 Intercooler Kit (CXRacing)
-Oil Line
-Drain Line
-SR20 Downpipe (needs to be extended for KA-T)
-Some sort of tune, or a 6:1 FMU

You'd probably spend less then $1000

Have you ever had your car tuned? What is the process to be tuned? Sorry about the 50 million ?'s but I'll never learn unless I ask!!

Nah I've never had my car tuned. It was on a T25 setup so there was really no excessive tuning to be done.

You can either get a rom tune, which is as simple as buying the ecu and installing it. You can get a dyno tune, which is expensive as hell I've heard, or you can get a standalone which is also expensive as hell.

I'm pretty sure with a dyno tune you just get your car on there, and they can see everything that's going on with the ecu, and they adjust it so your car runs like it came with a turbo. Same thing for standalone but you can do it yourself with a laptop lol

Changed my oil today. I was bored so I went ahead and took pictures. Smile

I used Mobil 1 oil



Get the 1/2 inch ratchet so you can break the oil pan bolt free without busting your balls



Old oil



New oil!

What the hell? No you crazy bastard, it's a 14.

Yeah it's my DD.
It's not boosted right now and it has a stock exhaust so I don't get any harassment whatsoever. It had a 3" straight pipe and I didn't get any harassment either...Just don't drive like a honda owner and you won't get pulled over.

Cops like Nissans cause they're sexy, so we get some slack.

I was going to try to "refresh" my engine bay, since I didn't have time to do it when the motor was out. It actually came out pretty good! Good enough!

The supplies...



Before paint/cleaning/anything, wires all over the place, gatorade overflow tank hahaha





I cleaned off/sanded a section and sprayed a coat to see if I liked the color. Turns out it was a pretty cool color, even sparkles in sunlight



Since I was pulling everything off anyway, I painted my coil bracket, and cleaned that too



After I got most of it painted, notice the wiring harness is out of the way, etc (I had a big plastic cover over the engine while painting)



After I put everything back together, and finished.



Way better than before I think!

Before/After

Did some bodywork on my passenger fender....

Body work sucks. But there are dents and they need to be fixed...

Here's right after "cheese grating" the bondo, notice how it's still rough looking



Here's after going over it with spot putty and sanding to smooth it out



Here's another dent. Right after the "cheese grating" that's why it's rough



Then spot putty/sanding



Another dent fixed



Bondo cocaine!



I primer-ed it and noticed I missed a few dents so I'll fix those tomorrow. too tired haha

Sway bar bushings arrived!

Took less than 2 business days for these to arrive from FRSport, they always ship fast



I never knew polyurethane felt so "solid." I figured it'd be like rubber.



New bushings vs. old bushings....look at that bushing...




I haven't been able to tell the difference yet cause I haven't driven it, but i'm sure it'll be significant compared to those old ones.

More body work

Posting all this from my build thread on nico....don't feel like updating one by one.

I got my Walbro yesterday, so I decided to install it today. This thing is tiny compared to the stock unit! I also may have figured out why I had my boost issue...my old fuel pump was like freakin DEAD.



New vs. old



Old fuel pump



New fuel pump mounted



New connections heatshrinked



Replaced the o-ring where the fuel pump bolts down

Just bought this for my turbo setup. Decided to run my Tomei 555's and a Z32 MAF. (I was thinking of selling the 555's, but whatever.)

My 3" v-band came..i needed this cause I want to run a 3" downpipe, not a 2.5" like the H1C has. So I welded the flange to my turbo...Keep in mind I don't really weld...




Also, my manifold came, I couldn't find any reviews on it so I just bought it.





I also ordered my intercooler kit, and some 3" pipe to make my downpipe with. Smile

Alright so IDK if you guys follow my build on NICO but I'm gonna skip months of progress and just post where I am at now.

KA is gone. No more 4 cylinder for me!



So I got a bunch of money for my new motor from the KA...



Tore the LSX down



And this is how my 240 looks now...like a part car.
