i did some searching and figured all i would need was what is in this ebay kit plus an afpr, fmu, fuel pump, batter relocate, and oil catch can.

T04E 12pc T3 T4 Universal Turbo Kit turbocharger Intercooler Wastegate BOV Timer | eBay

plus turbo headers of course, and thats all i figured would be needed for the most basic turbo set up.

Yeah man, see is the exact same stuff, except without alot of the extra hardware the more expensive kit has right? And ya, ive been looking around for a good, solid consistant list of stuff needed but everyone has discrepensies in their setup:/ and you used an fmu? How much boost you running and how much power did it turn out? Plus how did you get the idle just right?

A lot of people have put tons of hard work into digging through tons of threads and where solutions weren't readily available they thought long and hard to come up with them themselves. Not everyone is willing to just hand you a list they worked ages on themselves just to be copied in an instant, if such a list even exists in the first place as a lot of these systems are at least partly custom-built. Furthermore if you don't know the most basic list of what items a turbocharged system is comprised of, the general consensus is that you shouldn't even bother try building one yourself. The response you're most likely to get (if someone is feeling generous) is to read certain books on the subject. I personally think they're not wrong

I'm pretty much in the same boat as you by the way. I have almost 0 clue on what's needed. While a list would be handy I personally feel I will learn a whole lot more if I just go out and do some research on the topic. That'll make it a lot easier to maintain and troubleshoot the system when/if it fails.


In addition: Why would anyone post if you're not going to read carefully anyways? Pigeon stated he hopes he'll be there next summer and you're asking him how much boost he's running?

Ya, well, i appreciate the fact that you were polite and not a d*** about this subject , but on the same subject , it was a nice way of calling me lazy when i have actually spent hours looking through the forced induction forum area, many MANY hours of scouring the internet for a better understanding of basic and gradually more advanced subjects on operation and customization of forced induction systems and many more hours searching for videos of turbocharged vehicles including the mx6s. I have also taken apart a few of the turbos that are laying around at my house and have a good understanding how they work and what modifications needto be done. What i dont understand, is what is wrong with friendly assistance from more experienced people who have been in the situation and done it before, so people like you, pigeon and i , and other people like us, so we can cut down on time, mistakes and money. All of those thongs are costly and frustrating which could be relieved by help from veterans. Now that being said, learning from mistakes is costly, but invokes better understanding what to do next time. So while i agree theres nothing like self-taught experience, theres nothing wrong with assistance from your fellow member.

From what ive seen over the years, people that start threads like this never end up boosting their cars.
People who want a turbo make it happen.

i bet thats why people hesitate to post.

but you are right, theres no harm in helping out.
i havnt boosted an mx6. but itll happen eventualllly lol the basics that youll need are:
hot pipes
turbo
IC and piping ..might as well get a cheap ebay kit with turbo and oil line and what not and upgrade them later
afpr
for 5-7 psi you can use stock injectors
12:1 fmu
wideband
and youll need to modify the l-r crossmember for exhaust to clear it

better mounts and tranny saver bracket or extra mx3 mount are a good idea to

Firsttimer: Then you've indeed done much more than I initially gave you credit for , plus you've also done more research on the topic than me which I'm not ashamed to admit.

Regarding your initial post:
FMU/AFPR shouldn't be necessary when running Megasquirt
Polyurethane engine mount bushings aren't necessary, they're just a bonus
Stock injectors will handle an initial boosting project just fine. You can always switch to bigger injectors later.
Port and polish of heads etc isn't a requirement, but also a (huge) bonus.
You might want to reconsider the lightweight flywheel if you're going with a lot of hp. Lighter flywheel will make your car 'feel' a lot more nervous and in heavily boosted applications also a lot harder to control (but not undoable).

Thank you, i appreciate your honesty Mika and thanks for the info about not needing the afpr with ms, i guess if it needs more fuel you can just lengthen the injector pulse right? And all that extra stuff isnt needed, but from my opinion, theyll all make a big bonus on durability on my engine plus theyll have their own additions to the drivability of the build, more reliable. And i get where your coming from 97mx6, people think,"omg! Thatd be sooo awesome! Lets do it!" But then lose interest after they cant do it themselves or they dont have the money to spare or they cant afford to not have the car to drive during the build

Bump! Now that all the agreed upon requirements are settled, if i was to set my boost mildly at 5-7 psi, with an ebay T4e turbo as i listed in initial post, what kind of horsepower would i be looking at? Im looking for 250 or better but 250 is my goal atm
