Default So I'm building my own turbo kit

I have a T25 from an Eclipse turbo, a small FMIC, an MSD pump, and a 1st gen Eclipse BOV. Coming up is a DeltaGate, Split Second Adj. Voltage Clamp, Vortech RRFPR and the manifold and piping will be custom. So if I was planning to run ~5psi, is the FPR, pump, and voltage clamp enough to keep it under control?

You should also either have a J&S Ultrasafeguard or an Apexi ITC for timing. I have both for sale

there is no reason to retard timing at 5 psi.. .esp on a T25 sized turbo. I doubt you will be at risk of Predet at that low.

I think you need to consider head gasket problems though. Suby gaskets are known to blow. But you might be OK at 5psi.

Forget the voltage clamp and the FPR,Just buy a link or some other form of PEMS,you will anyway.Do it right once,I'm still learning that.I built my own kit as well.If you have any questions feel free to PM me or ask on the board.

He already has them...

People will always tell you to open your wallet and shell out for the best. What you are talking about will work. Basically what you are building is a Ludespeed Stage I turbo.

Check it out at www.ludespeed.com

He uses a T3/T4 hybrid turbo, but I am sure the turbo you have will work too. You just need an up-pipe and downpipe made to replace the Cat section of your exhaust. As long as you limit yourself to 5psi, and get the voltage right on the volt clamp, you should be just fine. You will probably wanna change your plugs to a cooler range though. I would say use the ones that come with the Ludespeed kit. I am running a stage I kit with the TMIC that comes standard with the stage II kit @ 3psi right now (that is what the "4.5psi" spring opens at) with no problems. I have an ITC to hook up, but it isn't installed yet. I plan to add a boost controller soon, and turn it up to 5psi.

3 months ago I would have agreed with you,Now even only lightly tuned with the Link the car runs much better,no more stutter,better mileage (Hey bumper really is silver!) and alos faster (least important).Like I said it is something you will wind up doing later,trust me.$1600 for injectors and a plug in ecm is much better than a hacked ecm,too small injectors (and a popped motor)






BTW I had all that stuff on there that you are going to be using and never once had any detonation issues etc.....

From personal experience I highly recommend engine management as the first modification,even before the turbo goes on.

I think the most important thing to consider is that if you don't have the money to do it properly, don' t do it at all.

Default ITC

Can the ITC be used on any ole car? I'm wondering if it can be used on older modelled scoobies. Thanks!
