    0-6psi < 48 hrs

    So Loner made the 3hr drive down here on Thursday to install his turbo, got here about noon and drove home this morning about the same time (Sat).

    It was a long 2 days, we didn't go to sleep until 2am Fri, got up at 8 and went right back at it. Pulled an all-nighter and it was running shortly after dawn.

    Here's the startup...



    Here's the first and second test drive after we overcame a couple of snags (coupler never tightened, and a coupler blew off)...





    We used the prototype turbo headers I build for him a couple of months ago and fabbed everything else while the car was here.

    He didn't hesitate to make the 3hr drive home after and only had a few minor details to work out.

    Here are some pics how we did it...

    75% throttle and spinning tires at 30mph is fun

    The fun didn't last long. He blew out the tranny today "playing around a little bit". He knew it was on it's last leg, and I see why with >140k on the clock.

    Looks like I'm driving to Orlando in a week or two to do a 5 speed swap, mowhahahah.

    It ran mid 14's N/A, I really wanted to see what kind of improvements the tubo made after the tune was tweaked, but it will have to wait now ;(

    I think it's a corsica. That's a cool little setup.

    Yes, it's a Corssica. OBD2 swap and DHP for tuning.

    Here's the prototype headers I built for it...

    I love the second race in this video against the Mustang lol. The Corsica was spinning the first 100 feet, DR's didn't help much ...

    Now if we can make a Corsica this fast with a turbo...

    It's got more, it just won't hook up after 9psi. He's going to have to modify the chassis and/or suspension to go faster :P
