Trying to decide on my turbo, just wish there were more people out there using some of the twin scroll options so we could compare. I've narrowed it down to these two.

GTPS05T-73HTA which is a 54lb/min thrust bearing
Blouche SC46 (TS polka pickle) that is 47lb/min Garrett BB CHRA

I've been leaning to the Blouche due to all of the great results over on scoobynet. But the larger GT Pumps turbo is interesting as well, especially after watching this vid (not sure if its the TS model or SS)

Mine came with "25k" on it but taking a proactive approach, I just replaced the timing belt, idlers, water pump + thermostat, and accessory and AC belt right off the bat. It cost an additional $500... was it worth it? I dunno.
That $500 might include some other stuff that I bought at the same time as well.

I bought a gates racing belt (and everything else) sourced for me by Rallispec in NJ. I'm not sure what PN they gave me, but I trusted they'd give me the right parts for my JDM motor. It's worked without a hiccup thus far (knock on wood). But I'm guessing this gates belt falls under the same 60k schedule.

I've looked into them, and for the price I'm leaning to the Blouch as the better bargain.

Check out this thread on them.
http://bbs.scoobynet.com/scoobynet-g...oll-turbo.html

From what I've seen, they are nearly identical performance with the Blouch apart from the few turbos which are larger and in turn have a lot more lag.

My engine came with two sensors teed under the alternators, looked very proffessionally done, with corrugated cable jacket, maybe installed at the dealer. I am guessing oil pressure and temperature sensors.
They looked like extra black connectors in the harness.

Another option is the Moore Performance setup with EVO turbos. Very tempted by this but the price is high considering everything that needs to be done. I haven't been able to find solid numbers, but $2-3k is my guess. But damn would a EVO 9 turbo on E85 be awesome. Bout to call them to get a better idea on pricing.

It is kind of a long story but the company I bought them from no longer exists but I am sure many places carry them.

The car felt great even with significant AVCS problems so I can't imagine they are hurting any of the motor's grunt but I can't give you any sort of valuable information yet. These pictures will help you understand why:

Passenger side intake cam pin:


Passenger side AVCS cam gear: (sorry, this one is a bit blurry)


Both sides were messed up (though passenger more significantly) due to the owner of the now deceased shop using an impact gun & 120 psi compressor to tighten the cam bolts. We finally discovered this 2 weeks ago, which is why the car is currently down, but the car has been running static and unchangeable AVCS (28* passenger, 4* driver) since initial start.

So, I am sure the car is going to feel drastically better even though it felt smooth, believe it or not, and strong already. It did hyper-lope at idle though, haha.

Hey what kind of gas mileage are you guys getting with the EJ207? I'm currently getting about 14MPG commuting to work and staying off boost as much as possible. Just want to know if that's normal or if I should get retuned?

To my surprise this 2.0 is a thirsty beasty when compared to the ej205, on which I normally average over 25mpg. With this setup, I'm at about 20mpg with mixed driving. Its much torquier down low, revs faster, builds boost quicker, so all these things add up to more fuel being used. Could also be my tune as well, my open loop transitions mirror the jdm rom, which puts you into open loop much much sooner than the stg2 accessecu rom i ran with the ej205.

Thanks for all the replies looks like I will be needing a re-tune, I imagine that my car is running rich since the previous owner had it tuned to his specific CAI, and me having a different brand CAI. My wideband shows it's running between 14.4-14.8 during highway cruising just not sure about how it's doing otherwise.

I picked up a V7 Ej207 for $1,000 knowing the heads were sticking come to find out the shortblock is all rusted too. Im waiting to hear back from the machinge shop but, Im looking for some help building this thing please chime in on parts and my options. My goals are a reliable 400whp and decent spool on e85. I have the turbo and stuff all figured out .82 rotated 3076r.
I dont want to take shortcuts on the motor build.

I was going to do the heads with
SuperTech .5mm bigger inconel exhaust valves
SuperTech .5mm bigger black nitrite intake valves
SupetTech dual spring Ti Retainers

I want your guys help with the shortblock. Im even considering an ej22t shortblock. I want the most reliable and well built set up without going insane with stuff i dont need because after all I only want 400whp on e85.

Thanks in advance, Taylor

The valves are a big mistake in my opinion. Leave it all stock. There is no advantage of the valves.

Clean up the heads, Check everything out and use them. Same with short block. You can get some forged pistons while you are there. stock rods are fine but if you want, Get some decent rods as they are cheap. Stock bearings are fine.

400whp is low for that turbo and E85. 450 would be easy. 500 is doable.

In short, Clean up the heads, Pistons, rods, bearings, New oil pump, Belt,tensioner and all idlers. Slap her in and enjoy

I average about 19.8 mpg overall with the lowest being 16.6 mpg and highest being 22.7 mpg. Only mods are catback and detuning for 93 octane fuel.
