 Post subject: low boost turbo
PostPosted: Sun Jan 20, 2002 9:41 pm 
Hi guys, I would like to know what I need to turbocharge my swift. I have a brand new GT motor and I think I only need turbo, manifold, boost controller and some hoses to run at 5-7psi. Any comment or suggestion?I'll add an intercooler if its too hot under the hood... <p></p><i></i>

Intercooler won't cool down your engine. In most case, adding intercooler will create more heat under the hood by producing more power and usually also by blocking radiator.<br><br>Good luck on your project!! <p><b>Team Ukosias Racing</b><br>90 Tsi<br>97 Civic LX</p><i></i>

Your fuel system is good for up to 12 lbs of boost, provided you have a fuel pressure of 45 psi at full boost.<br><br>For your low setup you'll need the following:<br>1. Exhaust turbo manifold - Easy if you don't have A/C<br>2. A TO2 or TO25 turbine. TO3 is more common but for low boost you'll need a compressor A/R of 40 or 45 and an Exhaust housing A/R of 48 or 36 for a faster spool-up<br>3. Braided oil line with 1/8" AN fittings. Need to weld a 5/8" fitting to the crankcase for oil drain.<br>4. Intake Piping, and down pipe. Better to remove the cat.<br>5. Water lines if the turbine is water cooled. <br>6. As you'll be running low boost, a Blowoff/bypass valve is not mandatory. The wastegate can be either internal or external. You will be controlling the boost with it.<br>7. The stock cooling system is pretty good for your setup, provided it's in healthy shape.<br>With this setup you can run 6-7 lbs of boost easy, it depends on how healthy is your engine internally.<br><br>Anything else, just let me know, as I just turbocharged my Swift about 3 months ago. <p></p><i></i>

Someone said it's easy to have an exhaust manifold if I don't have A/C or something like that...What do you means? <p></p><i></i>
