    DIY Turbo Kit Finished *PICS*

    This is the third DIY kit I've built for my '02 Z28. I used a Holset H1E for this build. The stock manifolds are being used right now, but I plan to switch to truck manifolds and 317 heads soon.

    A DIY alky injection system turns on at 3psi for intercooling, and tuning is done with HPtuners. I can't get on it right now because I don't have a WB o2 set up yet. I've got the timing pulled way back, and I have fattened it up under PE. I don't see any KR under the light boost. I'm pretty sure I'm safe, but I don't want to take a chance.

    I built a frame for my radiator to sit upright and lower. I also relocated the battery to the back. Those mods made plenty of room for the turbo to sit in the engine bay.

    I drove round trip 600+ miles to Vegas and back two days after the install and didn't get into to it at all. The most I saw was 3psi at part throttle going up grades. The boost starts to build around 2K RPM and comes in at part throttle.

    I can't wait to get my WB so I can tune the AFR and open it up.

    Just alky for now. I'll get a FMIC when I have some more spare change.
    I plan on running no more than 7psi.

    As they say, pick two: [Cheap, Reliable, Fast]. I picked the first and last.

    The jury is still out. After proper tuning, high 11s. I'm on the stock rear end and street tires for now.
