    Interest in Bolt on Turbo kit?

    I wanted to gauge interest in a bolt on turbo kit for the m42. I recently finished a m42 turbo swap into a 2002 and helped my buddy turbo his m42 swapped e21. I have an e30 at my disposal that I could mock up a turbo kit in.... The kit would be based around a low boost setup, about 9psi. Using bigger injectors and a retuned DME. The reason to keep the stock DME is that it will start, run, and drive like stock other than when you get on it.

    Kit would include everything you need including - turbo, oil feed/return, downpipe, intercooler w/brackets, IC piping, IC couplers/clamps, 42lb injectors, by pass valve, tuned chip.

    I am still working out the kit price but right now it is looking like around $1700.

    This kit would not include any gauges...a boost gauge and wideband could be added at additional cost. I am talking with a wideband company about a discounted rate for a controller and gauge.

    I am finishing another swap right now but could see the turbo kit happening before Christmas.

    Here are a couple videos of my friends car. This was also on a rough tune I did just so he could get it running and driving. We have tuned it more since the videos and it is much quicker. Power is smooth...without a big boost kick.

    Overhead shot of the e21...pic was without the downpipe.


    Manifold from the e21 - 4-2-1 done because of space constraints.




    Manifold on the 2002 (has external wastegate due to space constraints. E30 kit would be internal wastegate for simplicity/cost.



    If you are interested or have questions post or send a PM.

    thanks

      I would be interested in the "Turbo chip" for DME.

          im assuming this is on stock internals? the price isnt bad. Id really really like to see an MSL oversized HG included maybe some Arp headbolts as well. it would make the kit much more complete imo

              Yes it would be on stock internals. Arp studs would be a nice addition but then the motor has to come apart... With low boost I really don't feel they are needed. They do add a bit more assurance that the head won't lift for sure.

              e30jake: It is sounding like one person is in for sure so I will develop it and jig everything up so it can be reproduced.

                I'm definitely interested in the complete kit at this price point. Add me to the list.

                      Not that it would sway me one way or the other, but do you have any dyno numbers?

                        No dyno numbers right now. I know my buddy is planning/wanting to dyno his e21. Once I have those results I will post them.

                          0-60 times on the 02? I'd be down for a kit for sure.

                            I'll be down, but honestly like in a year. I hope this takes off and we can get a $1700 turbo together for the m42. My next project is a full suspension overhaul, and other than that my car really needs nothing...but m42's are always begging for more power.
                            The first car I ever rode in was an e30
