And the Turbo Build


Specs of the build.

-Currently on the stock 3v computer. Tuning was done wrong due to a time restraint.
-Factory MAF was the limit. Did not want to buy a new one because of future plans
-Single borg warner s369sxe
-Twin Precision Wastegates -
-Single Tial BOV
-Factory 3v exhaust manifolds w/ the flanges cut off.
-2.25 in up pipe
-4in down pipe
-3in intercooler pipe
-Treadstone intercooler
-Vibrant couplers and Clamps
-Radiator is a v8 swap s10 radiator off Ebay.
-Still has the manual trans in it for now.
-Stock bottom end 4.6
-5 psi wastegate springs
-91 oct pump gas
-Removed the power steering

Its not all done. I ripped it all down again to change a few things internally because I am going to go to a stand alone computer. I am locking the cams deleting the VCT solenoids and getting some stuff powered coated. I will be swapping out the manual for an auto. I have one of the ford 6r80s sitting here waiting to go in the truck. And the plan is to get a better tire on it with maybe a narrowed rear end because right now it wont hook at all.
