#109246, "420a Turbo upgrade"
Apr-13-12 08:52 PM by PinkPixi



          

I just wanted to start a thread on our turbo project named Pink Pixi.

She started out as a normal 1995 RS eclipse 5 speed with a broken timing belt.

We bought her for $250.00 from a friend of mine.

As soon as we got her home I asked my husband if he could make her go PSHHHT?

He was like yeah but its going to cost us alot of money and take some time to do it right.

My husband is a mechanic/master fabricator with a degree in computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

Here is what has been done to her so far:

BLOCK:

Cleaned, decked, line bored, pressure checked and painted pink

Wiseco Piston 88.00mm (+.020 Overbore)
8.8:1
Eagle Rods
New crank (knife edged)

ARP main/girdle Studs

Balanced the rotating assemble


HEAD:

cleaned,decked, line bored, pressure checked and painted purple

Upgraded Lifter Lash Adjusters

Cometic MLS Head Gasket

ARP Head studs

SBI Rocker Arms

SBI Valve guides

PEP Stainless Steel Valves

Stage 3 Head port (loss of low end, gain on top end)

Crower Performance level 5 - Stage 3 - Full Race Camshafts

Crower Springs/retainers


Transmission:

Built by royal transmission with heavy duty parts (01 neon with an lsd)

Fuel:

850cc PTE injectors
Warb 255 HP fuel pump
-8 up -10 down fuel lines
Custome built fuel rail
Aeromotive 1:1 FPR

Turbo/induction system:

T67 0.81 A/R P Trim Turbo Charger, Oil Cooled, 0.81 Turbine 3" Inlet & 3" Outlet 400-500 HP Rating
2.5 IC piping
FMIC 2.5 in 2.5 out
TiAL Q BOV
Custom intake manifold top half with fully ported bottom half
2nd gen throttle body with FIAV delete (egr deleted)

Exhaust:

Hasnt been built yet but it will be a full mandrel 3" with no cat (fake cat, we dont have emissions here)

That is all I can think of right now but I know there is more that I am forgetting hehe.


OH!!! and we have the super 420a Megasquirt from RS AutoSports too. (using it as a full stand alone with no factory ECU)


I have a lot of pics if anyone wants to see them.

I'll take some new pictures as soon as my husband is done taking out the ecu harness.

He is in the process of removing the harness completely but retaining all of the stock funtions that the car came with, so it is kind of a chore sorting it all out.

Here are the pictures of the motor that I posted in the introductions forum, it looks different now

All of the blue is gone and the intake, fuel rail, t-body, ic piping are differant and the FPR is an aeromotive now.

Got rid of the MSD Dis II too.

OK, I have a few up to date shots of the progress that is being done. Dont mind the mess and the RED elbow, I just used it for the picture.

Here is a shot of the new intake manifold with the 2g 4g63 t-body and a the fuel rail that was built also.

I am loving the car as I get to see it finally getting worked on again and moving towards a completion.



Same stuff just different angle and distance.



A shot from the front.



And a few closer shots of the rail

Where did you get that intake from? And the 4g63 TB and fuel rail was it hard to make it work??

My husband built the intake, exhaust and fuel rail. Tbody was easy with the intake being built for it. A tps is 5v ref , signal, ground. It's just wiring it up.

You mean how he built them?

My husband owned his own custom fab shop for over 10 years.

Right now he is removing the stock gauge cluster and setting up all aftermarket gauges in a custom plate in the stock location. (I saw it on youtube and told him I wanted that hehe)
