    Re: rebuild and turbo sc2

    yea, i want to take it slow. i want to have the second motor almost done before i put the turbo on just in case something happens. i dont want to blow my motor and try to rush the rebuild just to be able to put it in soon.

    That is actually a good idea that I wish I would have done. No sense in melting down a forged piston cuz your don't know what you are doing. Better be conservative and play it safe though, stock internals won't handle the abuse I throw at my forgies, and I still pitted a piston.

    well i already have the exhaust and im just going to put a 91-92 header and downpipe. but i think im going to do 3" exhaust and have it dump out just before the second 90* bend. as far as the turbo kit, i want to install it on the old motor first to make sure everything fits good and runs ok before i put it on the forged one. i would much rather have something break on the old motor than the good one.

    Well it looks like you're actually giving it a realistic build time. Honestly i'd just build it forged the first time around instead of building it then having to rip it back apart. Also don't bother with getting a header and an exhaust that's smaller than 2.5", you'll end up just getting rid of that stuff when the real build comes around. Otherwise looks decent.

    rebuild and turbo sc2

    ok so heres my plans. i pulled the motor out of my sl1 and plan to rebuild it with forged pistons/rods to a twin cam. im going to try and do the most i can on a tight budget, pnp, larger tb, and a few other things. i also want to turbo my car. so my plans are in this order:

    --stock motor--
    1. intake, header, exhaust
    2. install a megasquirt
    3. larger injectors
    4. get together all the turbo parts and install when the rebuild is almost done
    5. dyno tune it at about 5-6 psi
    6. boost old motor until it blows or i decide to install the rebuilt

    --forged motor--
    7. run it n/a for about 1-3 thousand miles to break it in
    8. install turbo kit and dyno tune to 5 psi. run another 1000 miles or so
    9. boost at 10-13 psi and hope i dont get boost greedy.

    i want to know if this is a good plan. im hoping to have everything done within the next 2 years. any input is welcome. im trying to do it right and take my time. thanks.
