Now availlable for the swift enthusiast, lots of parts for helping you to make your dream come true. Mostly for the supercharger wannabe but also for any serious racer. I can build just about anything for acceptable prices with a quality craftmanship. Here are some parts I have for sale, take note that I also build custom turbo setups for virtually any car on the market. This mean the 1.3 SOHC as well as any 1000cc turbo3 looking for turbo upgrade.


Turbo manifolds:

Made of high strength, SCH40 mandrel bent pipes with CHT100 grade steel flanges, they can be ordered under 3 different design: equal length, non-equal length and log-style manifold. Log style is the cheapest and allow you to keep your existing stock oil filter location. Good for the street racer with mild h-p target (140-160whp).
Equal and non-equal manifold offer more serious output possibilities.(140-300+whp) Exhaust pulse being undisturbed, it allows a wider range of turbo choices and maximum flowing for exhaust gases. To be efficient, these manifold require the shortest possible runners with a centered turbo. Most turbo setups are made of long, twisted runners with the turbo being mounted far away from the engine itself to allow the stock oil filter to be removed. Although turbo threshold will remain the same with both setups, lag will be dramaticaly reduced by having shorter runners. Bends and shoulders also create restriction and thus must be avoided as much as possible. Keep also in mind that long runners give more time & area for the gases to cool down, wich result in slower exhaust flow and less energy to spool the turbine.

-External oil filter adaptor:

Made out of billet aluminum, these covers adaptors bolt straight to the block and allow you to install a remote oil filter for ease of turbo manifold mounting. Aside from turbocharged aplications, a remote oil filter allows you to install better flowing, higher filtering-capacity filters. These 10-microns filters are made for hydraulical applications where the smallest particle can destroy a $25k body valve in no time. Most automotive filters in the market are in the 40-50 micron range. A turbocharger is notoriously know to cause oil to 'coke'. No matter how long your auto-timer is set to, any resting turbo will create coking. These 'coked' particles are extremely harmfull to the engine as well as for the fragile turbo components and must absolutely be avoided in the system.
Another benefit of having a remote oil filter setup is that it allows you to install an oil cooler. Engine internals such as crank & rods are not cooled by the water-cooling system but rather by the oil flowing throught the head. The temperature of these internals have a nasty habit of going up quickly but take quite a while to cool down. After a couple of WOT runs, your engine temperature might look normal (if your rad is efficient enought) while the crank,rod and other moving parts are still trying to cool down from the intense load they just took. Having a good, efficient oil cooler will help them hold a steady temperature, thus prolonging life and minimizing overall wear of these components. For those with high-revving goals, keep in mind that the colder a rod is, the more stress it can withstand before reaching the breaking point.

- New, used and rebuilts turbos:

Mostly for 1000 to 1800cc engines. I have a large choice of turbos to suit your needs, depending of the setup and aplication. The best suited for the swift is certainly the T25. It's availlable in a wide range of trims and are the cheapest turbos for any street racer. For modest gains (100-150whp) you can have something smaller such as KKK k14, mitsubishi 8g etc.
In the T25 familly, you can add: IHI rhb5's series, k03 and mitsubishi TDOH4. For huge output cavalry, you can have a garret T3, Mitsu TDOH5 and K28's. The bigger turbos require a lot of exhaust flow to get spooled so expect your car to be blessed with extremely poor low-to-mid-end torque. Most of these biggies won't start to spool before 4500rpm.
Please take note, turbos are fairly complex systems and they are availlable in a large variety of housings and impellers. It's possible to have two T25 with totally different CFM. Make sure you know what you're buying and do not be afraid of asking questions.

- Right handed intake manifolds:

Made from modified stock manifolds, they allow you to make customs setups and TMIC (top mounted intercoolers). They can be ordered with the t/b size of your choice. They are much cheaper than the few availlaibles from older MK1's DOHC cars too.

- TMIC mounting bracket (For those wanting to install their I/C just like mine)

- Modified injector racks w/exchange

- Rebuilt engines

- Rebuilt & ported heads

- Used or new low compression pistons

- I also have almost any used engines & body parts you might need, block, heads, pistons, name it, i've got it.

- Underbody braces (aluminum or steel, your choice)

- Aftermarket headlight harness w/relays (bypass the crapy stock system, keep a steady 14.2 volts to the bulbs and allow you to install off-road bulbs) 80/100 watts H4 off road bulbs aslo availlables (not DOT legal tho..)

- Complete oil cooler setups.

If you need any advices, let me know, I'll be glad to help

Here's a few pictures of some items availlable:

I have his underbody brace and it is even more beautiful when you have it in your arms and on the car. Jars always had good ideas and I'm sending at least one person to him for the turbo stuff.

How much for the pistons?

Are they forged? Are they the standard the bore?

What sort of compression do they knock the car down to? Are they any particular make?

Cheers

Tim!

ohh and price, and any chance of shipping some to the UK?

THanks for the tip lithan,

There is nothing wrong with the pm system, it's just not suited for long e-mails conversation as many ppl do w/me. I like to keep track of the thread.

Yep, this TMIC is very efficient, It surprised myself.

In case anyone is interested, I'm going to perform a basic turbo setup on my beater with this intercooler. I'll have a nice article put online by our dear webmaster nitro. I want to show everyone how a turbo setup can be made with little time, patience and loving care.

Under the car, up front. It attaches the two legs together and keep them from waving independently from each other.

A good option is to take a look around the board, search a bit, and if you yield no results then your best bet is to email Jardamuth (Jess) for information on this.
