Suby turbo conversion
« on: February 23, 2020, 09:04:33 PM »
Getting closer to "dyno time". Adding a small turbo and low boost. Waiting on lines and fittings for e85 conversion, also. Then build my fuel rails. Switching to Haltec ecu for more options. dsrace knows what I am talking about!!! Spring gathering is  still my goal.

nice work! you will thoroughly enjoy the build when it's all wrapped up!   that haltec is a far far superior ecu and will delete the west coast issues  :m :m :m :m

I gotta do some measuring at the spring gathering. I'm seriously considering doing a subi conversion of my buggy.I think I have plenty of room-maybe.

Looking good on the new turbo.  I will be interested in how you like the Haltec ECU and how friendly it is for tuning. 

Go for it fabr, as they say, “the world is flat”.

in the busa rail?? if so then you have plenty of room! that inline 4 cyl is longer than the suby and you already have the lengt of a trans.

I'm concerned about exhaust clearance.

This is how my headers turned out. They are v-band clamped in the center for installation.  Mid engine  car so they run in front of motor, and out the back of the passenger side. Very thin walled stainless,  so they are heavily wrapped. Very glad they are finished. What a nightmare to get all the bends aligned, then of course, they move after welding. I am a firm believer that exhaust is a special talent. (That I don't have!!)
