    Default KeWLKaT's Steps

    Old Turbo Kit is now sold.

    Ordered the Alpine entry level kit without decompression plate. I want to remain with stock compression to not lose power in the lower RPMs, since I will be keeping the same boost it is wastegated at (~8psi).

    Here is the reply I got today:

    Now... For all the people who can help me I have a few things:

    - I think I'm going to go with a simple DSM 1 G BOV (yes, the one I had and sold and now regretting ) I don't want to buy a replica and leak boost. A Cheap, real BOV, IMO, is better than an expensive, fake BOV. Comments?

    - Looking for an intercooler now... What dimensions should I need? I am going for something around 8 inches tall or so, but what's the width that I need? (Mahonroy?)

    FYI: That allen-bolt on the driver's side of the head is a MFer to remove. Most people have had to drill out the center to remove it. Just thought I'd give you a heads-up.

    Yeah, I had heard about that, but after doing multiple searches on NT.com, apparently all you have to do is get the engine hot, and then remove the bolt.

    Either way, I have an extractor

    Thanks for the concern though!

    Good luck with everything. I will be following closely to see how it all goes!

    I really hope this works out as well as you are hoping with all the tuning you talk about, show everyone what you mean and have a sick xd driving around montreal to show for your hard work!

    So whats the expense so far on parts (price run down on each piece and where ya found them for others to reference) and are you getting it professionally installed or doing it completely yourself (for free)?

    honestly, a 3" exhaust may be too big. if youre getting mandrel bends, go w/ a 2.5", itll be good for up to 400 hp easy. with a 3", you risk hitting a boost spike, over-boosting, and possibly blowing your motor.

    dont tap your block for oil return. tap the oil pan at the top. this will a) not ruin your block b) be easy to reverse if/when you sell, youll just need a new oil pan c) be a TON easier. the oil pan has plenty room to have an oil return line

    make sure you have some extra $ on hand (500$) because you WILL be making countless runs to the store for dumb parts...trust me, me and nick (dweet) did it while turbo'ing his rd2

    @robs02elantra:

    Thanks man, I hope so also Next year comes you car

    @Ctele02 and Arunsenior....

    Price breakdowns... (CAN$)

    I basically got a (partial) custom kit from some local guy with an RD. This included all the big parts like the manifold, turbo, exhaust, pipes, fuel delivery system (which I will not use) and a couple more goodies for around 2000$

    Apart from that,

    SMT-6 - 340$ new (local)
    Boost controller - 50$ (local)
    Injectors - 250$ (Kspec)
    Gauges- 50-80$ EA, some came with the kit, some from eBay
    Oil lines and fittings - 75$ (local)
    Misc gaskets, couplers, clamps, piping - 150$

    Plus I wil be reselling the FMU and injectors that came with the kit, looking to get a minimum of 400$ for that, so, in total, I think it comes close to 2500$.

    I have a little extra left "just in case".

    @Clarion:

    I need to tap into the coolant lines because my turbo is watercooled also.

    @evan:

    The only reason I got 3" is because the guy gave me his exhaust with his kit. The DP being 2.5" (right size), I am not worried about boost creep, and also the fact that my WG is internal helps a little to give me that piece of mind. Also, keep in mind that I have a boost controller attached to the BOV, so, even if I experience boost creep, it will be evacuated into the atmosphere

    LOL You're funny

    No problemo for the info.

    And for information's sake, this SSA manifold has flawless welds, I don't know why you guys hate them so much. The runners aren't messy like on their headers.

    Next year my car indeed!! I've started saving for a car for my wife, and enquiring about increase in Insurance for a second car, so that I can go crazy on the XD without having to worry about it being reliable enough for my wife.

    If I pass the 200 whp mark nicely, tuned on 94 octane, I will be very happy.

    Then come the air flow mods.

    Installation comes during holiday vacations. Most probably around the first week of January, and the tuning will be done asap with wideband O2 dyno sheets.

    if he has a tiburon. the exhaust is going to take more work trying to get it to fit (remember, tibs exhaust comes out on the drivers side) than just getting a good 2.5" for your car. you can still hit boost spike w/ a 2.5" dp and 3" exhaust. i think its just overkill, and will be too much. 2.5" exhaust will also be a little bit lighter due to less material, and again, will be good for well over 400hp

    It's all good man.

    I'll see.

    Also, bro, i don't know where you got the info that the tib exhaust comes out from the driver's side...



    the exhaust is very similar if not identical to the xd's.

    two guys on my forum did the swap with minimal modification needed, and i will try to reproduce that.

    ...as listed on ebay for a 97-01 exhaust.



    the bend makes it go to the drivers side. ive seen a few lately like that. i guess they go both ways. either way, good luck making it fit
