    Re: 86 Honda Accord turbo build

    I would like to thank you hashmam for being my friend and posting on my thread. yeah I'm going to do what tdurr Said. he's the man right now .I appreciate you homie. but the turbo right now is a T3 T4 generic turbo it came with the kit . It's claiming they put out 485 horsepower I'm kind of scared it's going to blow up on the dyno. In the future I plan on running a Garrett turbo off of Mercedes . I decided to take the car on a 800 mile road trip to Orlando . 400 miles there 400 back. I replace the fuel pump a couple months ago with the $40 one off eBay the claim to hold 500 horsepower. I bought this one before I learned about the walbro 255. But for $40 this has been one of the best performance parts I have ever put on the car in my 13 years of owning it. I think I mainly got it because it said it was high performance and it has a lifetime warranty Japanese made .So back to the road trip .car running great Like A Champion .hundred miles from reaching my destination car starts running like I hit a big water puddle and it sucked up water backfire bubbling just running like shit. I'm on I-75 and there's no rest stops or little towns to stop for 15 miles so I pull over pop the hood check it out I see there's liquid splattered everywhere it looked like I thought a radiator hose blew up .what happened my battery blew up!!! battery acid everywhere all up in the intake on my new plug wires battery acid burned part of my plug wires away . take pipe off cuz the air filters right there and the battery is just blowing it directly into it. So I get it back on the road it takes about 15-20 minutes to run the water off or battery acid before it the motor was running fine again. then I said fuck it I'm going all the way .so I took it all the way and went to the nearest store which was a Walmart at the time closest to my destination. pop the hood to unhook the battery for my cord charge and Battery was round instead of square so I purchase battery $80 enjoyed a couple days in Orlando and now it's time to head back. As I go to fill up the car with gas to leave it starts raining and my intake piping is off. no problem and I'll just do it at the gas station covered out of the rain well it was a thinner battery the newer battery is the one for the car so my piping didn't fit said fuck it pop the hats do in the back hauled ass for 30 miles it rained and the car ran like shit I would have not ran it through the rain like that but I had to get back to be at work on Tuesday but after the rain stopped in the motor dried out and ran great and I made it home safely and right as I sat down that's when hash man replied to my thread car hit 400,000 miles on my way back .new dash cover came in today

    lmk how that clutch holds up. I don't understand how their 2+ holds better than a stage 3. But having a 2&3 at different points you will like the clutch for sure. Just know the stage 2 does not do well with 220hp.

    Re: 86 Honda Accord turbo build

    Decided to go ahead and bolt up turbo header and turbo combination .to see where I was with my clearance and downpipe and intercooler piping. stainless exhaust studs installed. had to cut part of the motor mount bracket out and motor wedding to have clearance for the turbo. what a nightmare I have to find some kind of T3 spacer a thicker spacer. It's my daily driver so I had to take it back apart. EGR tube removed and capped .I can verify EGR taper plug for a 2.0 Nissan part number 14052 - 21R00 fits great in stock header. that's all I have for now see you next time

    Cygnus x-1 mount upgrade may have save you from cuting the stock one up. But its really unavoidable at some point most people end up cutting them out or crossmember to Turbo

    Re: 86 Honda Accord turbo build

    Thank you for your info I'm pretty confident that the two bolts that hold the mount are secure. Even with the spacer the turbo so big , such a tight squeeze the oil lines may have to be at a 45 degree angle. Still trying to figure out how I'm going to do the intercooler piping, may have to switch to Honda Civic half size radiator for clearance

    Re: 86 Honda Accord turbo build

    Half size radiator is the most common way to go you can also look for truck radiators many places offer them now but they range anywhere between 499 to 750 depending on what brand you go. As far as intercoolers go you can use the one that came in your kit or you can also opt out to get a radiator with a dual-sided Inlet so you don't have to run extra piping would make life a little bit easier but once again those are expensive. I don't remember who it was but somebody here just recently I picked up a nice intercooler and Tuck radiator kit for around a grand from speedfactory that's pretty nice she also looks pretty awesome on the Accord

    Re: 86 Honda Accord turbo build

    Yes I have just long enough to get it running then I pulled to head and to have it cleaned so the I can put my cam and duel vavle springs and titanium retainers before I put my turbo setup on it. I just got my itm back form being port maked to the 72mm tb I'm running. Not is to complete my milspec wirring harness but thats not going so well. I still have to the radiator and a bunch or other little things but its my project car so there isn't much of a rush as there is a need to be doing right the first time

    I got them from a member here a while ago. They were custom made from what I understand. I didn't really ask many questions because I got a hell of a deal. My TB is BDL industry 72mm something but it was much bigger than my skunk2 b16 ITM port was so i had it opened up.
