Woow! Sub'd

Very niice sleeper ; its same goal id like to achieve with my e46 but worry as to how reliable it may be with extra torque added to the chassis:

Also could this be done with 10k? If not, how much we talking?

Customer requesting 400-450whp, I'm looking to be knocking on the 500whp door before all is said and done. Stock DME tuning, pump fuel

Off the flange is 1.25" sch.10 up to the 3 to 1 collector's, 1.5" sch. 10 out of the collectors to the turbo flange.

Any issues that arise in the chassis, if any, will be addressed at that time. Regarding pricing, the turbo setup alone, without touching the motor, exceeds 10k for this build . Feel free to call the shop (813) 949 - 3540, speak to Andrew or you can email me directly, shawn@lutzperformance.com regarding a quote built to your specs.

I find this completely reasonable for the quality of work shown.

You guys do Honda stuff? I have a really clean Integra, LS motor (b18b) with a T61 turbonetics that I'm looking to make around 300whp with. I think I want to run Hondata, eCtune, or neptune-which would you suggest?

Thank you! Trying to convince people of that (those that would never look for this type of fabrication and attention to detail) is usually more painful than 7 stitches in my hand =D

We are primarily a European shop and provide tuning for those platforms.


More progress:

The longest wastegate dump ever Sometimes there's just not space where you anticipate space!





3.5" intake



Current staus, everything motorwise completely reinstalled and ready to go, just some fab remaining







AEM boost and wideband display in rearview mirror from Radar Mirror



Turbosmart Eboost2 EBC



Shouldn't have too many traction issues with these









More soon!
