The compressor housing on my t3/t4 is so large that I couldn't make it to the stock location. I tried and the oil would back up and burn out the exhaust. Had to tap the pan and JBweld a fitting in. Works good now though.:tup:Oil feed lines are simple to run. Drains lines... well those can get tricky.
I know that the stock fuel system is pretty good, with a simple walboro 190lph and Aeromotive FPR I was getting around 17-18psi on stock injectors, easily making excess of 250whp. Now with my 39lb injectors(400cc) im making 20psi and made 280whp and 336 ft/lbs torque with 12.0 on the wideband. I know I need to go standalone badly.
And about Turbo budget builds... It all depends the extent of what your looking for, because I spent a big amount of money on my setup, but didnt skimp on 1 thing along the way. Bran new Ball bearing turbos aint cheap, but man my powerband is sweet, gotta post the dyno sheet one day. Plus you have to take into account if your not the greatest at fabrication or running custom oil/feed lines that the labour alone for this custom work will cost a lot of money. Ive been through it all, now I really need to go MS to complete the setup, bigger turbo on stock chipped ECUs can only go so far.
BTW, what is a good FMU that is compatible and available for our cars? I may need to pick one up.
Great Post Defiller:tup:
i agree that the stock fuel system probably wouldnt keep up with 17psi on a t3/t4, but he could have been running higher fuel pressure to make that setup work :shrug:point is i dont see you running 17-18psi on stock injector with just pump, without detonating the crap out of your car. i have 4 f2T with t3/t4e of varous different sizes and unless your car is not putting out anypower or just a crap inefficient turbo i doubt its running that much boost.
also just dropping a bigger injector on your car without any control is a quick way to dyno 170 whp at 20psi. show some of your dyno sheet.
