Twin turbo 850 project...
Have been keeping my twin turbo project under wraps recently. However, now that all of the bits and pieces have arrived, I thought I'd share with you my progress thus far...
- Disassembled top end of motor (intakes, valve covers, etc).
- Disassembled valence pieces below and in front of radiator.
- Removed stock exhaust system (engine to tailpipes).
- Begun fabrication of stainless steel turbo exhaust manifolds.
- Begun fabrication of intercooler brackets.
- Completed fabrication of intercooler.
- Received turbos and wastegates.
Lots left to do but things are progressing. Here's a pic of the pieces. Will post more pics of the car later as things progress. Rgds... -John
Pics of intercooler mounted in the car...
The pics below show the intercooler from the top and from the bottom. I still need to fabricate brackets to secure it and hope to finish that bit soon. Rgds... - John

Pic of my new wideband O2 controller...
Picked this up last week. Will interface the output from this to the datalogger in my piggyback Fuel/Timing controller. The O2 controller unit itself is from Innovate. They have just about the best unit on the market today. Should pay for itself in money saved from widband O2-logged dyno pulls.
HELL YEAH! It\'s time to party!
