Selling my T3/T4 Turbonetics Turbo that has 6631KM's on it, to the tee.
I think its a 63.A/R T3 Exhaust housing turbo efficient to about 400 poonies or so. TO4E Intake Housing which would make it a 3" inlet, 2.5 outlet on the exhaust side.
Turbo is absolutely MINT, selling because the engine is yanked and im upgrading to a full T4 set-up. This isn't a journal bearing turbo it's a ball bearing design, which provides for quicker spool and in turn less lag time.
Willing to let it go for $850.00US OBO + shipping.
I have Rods Stock mount tubular ceramic coated header with EGR provision for sale. It has just over 12,000Km's on it. bought for $550.00 US selling for $250 US + shipping. I can ship From Canada or the States.
Bought a Ford wiring harness, wired it all up for my Alpine Deck, plugged it in everything works lights up plays cd's blah blah blah. But there is no sound coming out of any of the speakers. What do i do with the stock equalizer that's there, i tried it unplugged and plugged in, it appears that absolutely no power is going to the equalizer so i am asumming it is not part of the equation.
Putting my new set-up together. Forgot where on the hell the PCV end screws into.
And im kind of confused as to which vacuum lines do what. I have no boost controller at the moment, i will be purchasing a Ric Gillis manual set-up soon enough. Is my wastegate line plugged into the right spot on the turbo, i believe it is.
Anyways i just need to clarification on things. Thanks
Over this winter/spring I am building my 2.3L from bottom to top. A lot of time and money is going to be invested into this project and I am creating this thread to post updates and ask questions related to the motor and drive train. Goal is to reach 700whp on race gas with MicroTech tune. and have a respectable 400-500 for the street as a daily driver. This project may even end up going through the majority of the summer depending on funds and determination.
First question. Is the stock Crank going to be good for 700+ HP? Should i go .020 over or .030 over? what kind of compression should i aim to run if i am running around atleast 30PSI, 8:1? What kind of Rods should i go with?
Needed a car to get around in now that the tbird is in parts. Found this little gem on CL and it was a steal. 1994 2.3L 4 speed manual with overdrive with 330,000KM's on it which is about 186,000 miles.
Car has absoultly zero rust. They original owner owned it until 2006 and he put all highway miles on it, drove about 40miles roundtrip everyday to and from work. The second owner only owned it for 2 years, he managed a oil change place, changed all the fluids with synthetics, diff, tranny, and engine recently.
Ordered these awhile ago from Panther. they are indiglow Blue with a white face. Paid well over $115.00 for them selling for $100 or will consider a trade for a performance goodie or gauges, turbo timer ext.
On August 3rd one of the local college sports car clubs was holding an auto X event, they actually hold a bunch of them. Anyways my father and I went down there, payed for a membership and got 8 runs in.
It was a fairly complicated course, started off with a slalom then a couple of boxs a 180 deg turn threw a chicane, back around another 180 deg turn threw the chicane again, threw the first 180 deg turn again then threw 3 boxs that where spread a part laterally. which required you to have the car at the right angle entering the boxs. then a braking box and that was it.
Second run was a DNF, course was confusing, got lost in the bunch of cones. But once I got it down I was absolutely hauling ass.
Fastest Times: http://www.ubcscc.com/events/2008/ntn4/T.TXT (finished fairly low in the pack 46th out of 58, but surprised the hell out of some import guys with my times considering it was such a big car for that type of track)
