Brought my turbo to work today to inspect the wheels. Just as I suspected the turbine wheel is damaged due to the piston failures. Saw this coming. Turbo has been shipped to Boostlab in Florida for an overhaul and possible ceramic coating to turbine housing and polishing of the compressor housing. I'd love to upgrade the turbo right now but I am more focused on getting the long block 100% where I want it. I'm curious to see what power I can make before I upgrade the turbo.

Got an NRG short hub to replace my MOMO steering wheel hub. Placement is much more ideal now with the quick release.

Also, Cloye's timing chain guides. Will be paired with a brand new GM chain and GM tensioner.

I see a 2 piece tensioner. I highly disapprove of that.

Agreed, the 96 is a much better design in my opinion.

My bad guys! I honestly wasn't aware of the one piece style.

I'll order one of those instead. :-)

Boostlab has my turbo (according to tracking info). Just waiting on their call!

Clutchmasters FX300 segmented kevlar clutch showed up yesterday. If my stock replacement exedy clutch could handle my old HP rating I should be totally fine with this.

800cc EV14 Deatschwerks injectors w/ adapters ordered.

This will get her down the road a bit quicker.

Precision 5531 with MFS compressor wheel.

I don't have a ton of clearance between the turbine housing and waterpump with my header so I went with a turbo that will fit the space constraints and line up with the current downpipe.

Overall very pleased with this turbo.

oh my good god.

makes LD9 last longer than 99.9999% of them ever made with incredible reliability, even under boost. pops TWO rings lands, still runs and drives for two more years whilst not even needing to be pulled. if that's not a true representation of what an LD9 is capable in the hands of a loving owner I really don't effing know what is.

lol I like how its "not gonna upgrade turbo" then two posts after, you post pics of a new BADASS turbo. hahahaha

I cannot wait to see this thing back together again. its going to be 10X the setup it was before.



RIP silver car. You will be missed.

Mocked up the turbo on the old engine to check water pump to down pipe clearance and ordered a 4 bolt to V band adapter. Perfect placement compared to my old turbo which will cut down fab time for down pipe reasons. I shouldn't need to modify it at all.

That is sweet. Old one not worth repairing?

I sent it to Boostlab in Florida and since it was a knock off turbo they were unable to rebuild it. Something about odd shaft size and such.

Some before and afters.

With paint, the Trak Lites, a better muffler, and on the ground this should all pull together nicely.

That looks cool. Rear diffuser in the middle or no?

Split lip is money son!


But you already know my opinion on this.

I mocked up a diffuser but I wasn't feeling it. Felt too tacky since it wasn't perfectly functional. I may revisit the idea later.

Not sure how I feel about the split lip... I'll be curious to see how it looks once it's painted.

I think that's the general opinion so far. Even I am slightly skeptical but I am excited to finish it.

Now if your running a diffuser in there, that changes everything.

Picked up the intercooler Skilz10179 was using. Needs some cleaning and I may straighten some of the fins. It's a shame the OEM bumper covers it up..

Wiggins made me some decals for the Trak Lites. Trying to liven up such a boring wheel!
