    Turbo build, engine pics

    Well there you go what do you guys think, i don't have any other pics of the inside because i didn't figure them necessary because its all just stock bottom end( the head is too, with the exception of polished exhast ports..) The bottom end just has .020 over piston, polished crank...etc..etc. The mani if you didn't know i got from 3geez about 4 months ago, the turbo is just a Chrysler/Dodge turbo(48/42 A/R) I hate the intake housing on the turbo but it will do for now... and my nicely painted red valve cover, it kinda looks orange because of the light though.. Well I have alot more work to do on this thing still before it goes in but what do you guys think so far...?

    Looks good, But I see the dreaded red dust in the distributor. Makes me want to put my turbo stuff on.

    Re: Turbo build, engine pics

    DO you have any internal pics? Looks good so far and the two things i am concerned about is the Turbo to Radiator clearance and the fuel. Seems like you got the stock regulator on. U plan on running additional injectors or something? and yeah that distributor has to go. Lol looks worse than mine. A little info about the head and the cam would be appriciated.

    Re: Turbo build, engine pics

    Ok well the distributor is dirty inside yes but what is wrong with that, once the cap is on you'll never see it.. also i didn't take pics of internals, like i said i didn't see any point because it is all just new stock parts... sorry but i'm not a big picture taker. As for injectors and fuel regulator i am most likely going to use dsm injectors(blue tops).. and maybe a B&M reg. The head i just took a cylinred read repair and rebuilding class in college and reabuilt it... I did a complete valve job(3 angle) and polished the exhaust side for flow. other than that i just R&R'd the head. I only plan on running 7-10 psi on thins motor so i don't think i'll need much more than what i already explained on this engine.. How does all this sound...?

    Uh, the red rust means it's on its last leg. (Bearings inside the dizzy.)

    You'll see soon enough if you don't replace it. =)

    10psi is doable on stock internals no prob, so if you just wanna go oversize stock cast pistons they should hold.

    Re: Turbo build, engine pics

    That's about what i planned maybe even less(7-10)... I think i should be around 175 Hp depending on the boost and stuff... I believe that Elijah did those numbers with this mani,slightly larger injectors and FPR... We shall see.

    Re: Turbo build, engine pics

    Ok just so i get all around info, people at prelude power asked me about my vaccum dizzy and boost. How will that all work out, i just figure not using the vaccum advance will solve any problems. What dop you boosted accords do?

    Re: Turbo build, engine pics

    your best bet is using something along the lines of an MSD BTM. it will pull ignition timing a certain amount (that you set on a dial) per pound of boost in the system. its a cheap easy way to pull timing.

    You can also implement stepped timing retard with an OBD1 conversion and Crome. I believe that TurboEdit will also do it with OBD0 Civic and Teg ECUs.

    Nice mani, looks like the ones Sean was building. Yea I will be curious if the wastegate hits the rad, or just run a civic rad.

    Re: Turbo build, engine pics

    yeah justin i think that was the manifold that sean built for elijah long ago.

    im thinking of putting a civic radiator on the DRIVERS side of the front bumper, and running one of those manifolds that moves the turbo over to the passenger side. would be bitching.... ill find a pic...

    Re: Turbo build, engine pics

    I really don't like that style of manifold. It pushes so much heat closer to the hood.

    And it looks like a bitch to access the sparkplugs.

    Well this mani was stainless but it had lots off burns and finger prints in it so i painted it...But yeah it is made for the dodge T3 with the weird flange... And as for access to spark plug its really easy now we shall see once it is in the car.

    Well, I'm impressed! Good job!

    Of course I'm lazy. If I wanted to work on my car I'd have gotten a DSM

    Looks nice. Let us know how the turbo w/wastage & radiator fit. Going with inter-cooler too?
