Not much of a updatre but I made some progress tonight.
I got my new oem water banjo washers for the turbo, oilcooler banjo washers, and turbo gasket set.
I spent most of the night playing with the turbo figuring out where to clock it. The 14b has htis annoying notch on the cartridge and a pin on the compressor housing so it can only be installed one way. I had to file a new notch into the cartridge as I have it clocked way off from factory.
Anyhow, pic is of my 14b turbo mounted in a td05 housing ground out for a td05h wheel. This turbo should be fine for the time being. I know with the evo 3 housing these turbos will flow 300rwhp. I figure if I can get 250rwhp I will be happy. I know my torqu will be over 300 with some luck
I also installed the water linues for the heater core. Along with that I cut some of the cloth intercooler pipes to fit my intercooler configuration.
The only thing I have left in the engine bay right now is the following.
-install new vc gasket
-Secure starion wiring harness
-trim stock harness so it only fires the starter, or run the starion starter trigger. I'm undecided.
-Make some simple radiator mounts for the fiero radiator and tie in a puller fan.
-make a small oil cooler mount
-bolt the grill and bumper back on
-install the new pcv hose
-install a 1 way valve between the intake and booster off a starion
-install fuel filter, feed and return lines
Basically a ton of small things I can wrap up in a day easily.
Other things I still have to do with the car.
-reinstall blower motor
-clean and paint the dash parts
-install some black starion carpet
-install starion seats
-paint and clean the entire interior trim
-install banjo for the slave cylinder
-weld in the upper mount for the clutch pedal
-install clutch pedal to master rod
-redo all the brakes and flush brake system
-cut and weld up my resonator and side dump exhaust
-wire the couple wires off the starion harness.
-run a fuel pump power wire off the stock starion harness
I think thats about it. I should have this baby up and running in a few days.
This is how the engine sits now. I forgot to bolt on the wastegate actuator.
