This project came in with a nightmare turbo system..............I'll just leave it on that note!
The only thing of old turbo system that was retained was the intercooler, wastegate, BOV and TurboSmart boost controller. Given the guy's budget, It turned out quite nice.
A few specs:
Stock Cobra spec Aluminator with relatively mild cams
Sullivan lower and upper intake with stock 3V FBW throttlebody
Relocated oil filter and added an oil cooler.
Modified driverside cam cover with second cam sensor.......needed to be able to keep the stock 3V computer
Upgraded fuel system
Stock 07 MAF with MAFia
6060 Tremec with twin disc clutch
It has 3.73 gears in the rear, but the stock 3.31 would have been much better suited for his usage.
6pt rollbar bolted in with removable door bars.
The car drives like stock until you plant your foot.
During a couple 100 mile shakedowns, the car averaged over 22mpg. This was with quite a few full throttle runs to get the boost controller set and just make sure it had no problems.
Here's a few pictures of the engine bay.
SNEAKY!!!!!!!!!!!! Ya can't really see the intercooler.
On 14 psi, it made 624RWHP/588RWTQ. That was a "cold run" if you can call a run at 7pm in Phoenix cold. The other run on the dyno was from the previous night and was a real word hot run with the engine and everything heat soaked.
