    Turbo eta

    The turbo install is finally done, and what fun it is! The turbo suits the eta perfectly. It builds boost at 2000 rpm, and reaches max. boost (9psi) around 3000 rpm. This is the first turbo car Iv ever driven and all I can saw is WOW, im addicted. I cant even imagine what cars running 15+ psi feel like.
    Garrett T3
    524td manifold
    Bosch BOV
    Tial replica wastegate
    Powerdyne 8:1 FMU
    ebay intercooler
    2.5" charge pipes
    Boost, oil psi, A/F ratio gauges
    Next mod will be the exhaust, Im using the stock 2" right now, but hopefully will build a full 3" later on. Im also going to swap out the 4.10 LSD I recently put in, its really short, Im opting for a 3.46 or ratios in that area. The entire build took alittle less than 2 months, woking mostly on weekends due to school. This mod will take a long time to get used to!

    Videos are in store for the future as well, once the rain lets up Ill post some.

                        The entire AC system is gone, including the fan in the front. :D

                        I just added few pics with the front on.

                          so what's your redline? The only turbo e30 i've ever driven was Matt's old 2.7L- and i hated how quickly I had to shift, and that was around 7k!

                            Redline is around 5000 rpm:-( I have to shift alot with the 4.10 diff, but thats coming out soon. Its alot of fun though!

                            I drove around the day it was done like that, I got some funny looks. I roared through a little dead end road tennis place, the tennisers didnt like it one bit. On my way back out some tried to stop me giving me angry faces. I didnt stop.
