Toph's All Out Turbo Build

Hey everyone, been working on getting all the parts for this build together for the past two years, so I figured its time to show it since parts are finally heading to the machine shop tomorrow. Hoping to have the car rolling and mechanically finished by the end of March/Early April.

I bought the car back in 2007 with 93k on the clock and didn't really do much besides the usual till out of college (CAI, dual exhaust, 8.8 gt axle, tubular control arms, aluminum driveshaft).

I took the engine/trans out in November, and have been working on buying the last round of parts for the final build. Currently I am waiting on my pistons to show up from summit racing, then two weeks at the machine shop, then assembly time.

Parts List:

Engine:
94 Supercoupe Block
94 Supercoupe Forged Crankshaft
94 Supercoupe Forged Ibeam Rods
Wiseco Tru Pro Forged Pistons 0.030" over (9.0:1 CR)

ARP Head Studs
New Water/Oil Pump
39Lb/hr Cobra Injectors
Ported/Polished Heads (done by myself)
Ported/Polished Lower Intake Manifold (done by myself)
Windstar Upper Intake Manifold
65mm Mustang GT throttle Body
Autometer Oil Pressure Gauge
Autometer Water Temp Gauge
42% Underdrive Pulley
310LPH Fuel Pump
BA2400 MAF
LS1/6 Valve Springs
GT Valve Spring Retainers
Custom Camshaft (Specs to come)

Turbo:
Custom Stainless Steel Hot Side Piping
Master Power T3 S50 Turbo
Tial 38mm Wastegate (5psi spring)
Tial 50mm BOV
AEM Truboost Electronic Boost Controller
AEM Wideband A/F Gauge
Bar/Plate 32"x12"x3" Intercooler
3" Aluminum Intercooler Piping

Drivetrain/Suspension:
Promotion Gforce T5 Transmission
Valero 11" 26spline Clutch
Short Throw Shifter
Aluminum Driveshaft
03 Cobra Independent Rear Suspension
Prothane IRS Bushing Kit
MM IRS Differential Bushing Kit
IRS Differential Brace
Tokico Dspec Adjustable Front Struts
Tokico Front Lowering Springs (1.5" drop)
Bilstein Rear Shocks
03 Cobra Springs Cut for 1.5" drop
03 Mach 1 13" Front Brakes
Caster Camber Plates

And now, pictures.

Thanks man. Yah, getting the porting was a lot more work then I imagined it to be. All in all for the lower intake and both heads, about 8 hours, and I think I maybe have about 5 cartridge rolls left of that porting kit from jegs haha. Glad I got an air compressor or it would have never happened.

Yah, I'm pumped to finally get this project into the final stretch. Not having the car since novemeber has sucked haha. Been going through major withdrawls (almost sold my DD outback for a 5 spd wrx or similar car about 4 times)

The porting wasnt too bad, the most nerve racking part was doing the bowl work. I covered the valve seats with a couple layers of athletic tape since its pretty tough, and that helped put my mind at ease since they were at least protected a little bit if I were to slightly bump them (which I thankfully didn't).

I barely did anything to the bowl.

BTW, I may have to come to PA to snatch that bumper off your car. Mine is about to fall off, and everytime I see your sig picture my eyes get greener and greener

Well I ordered the rest of my gauges today, should be in in a few days, as well as the lifters for the engine. Everything should be purchased for the engine now except the pushrods, which I will have to measure once it goes together, and other than that just spark plugs. Any body have any suggestions on plugs to run on a turbo, and gap?

The turbo is sized pretty small for this engine, and the combination of that, the gearing in the transmission, the gears in the IRS, and with the porting work I did for opening up the exhaust ports on the heads I don't have any concern with this turbo spooling. Its set up for quick spool, not high end power, as this will be a street car/autocross, not drag strip.

My assumption was that he was assuming since the UDP transfers less energy to the accessories the engine is under less load. But the load just gets transferred to the back wheels where you want it anyways.

Anyways, the only things left to purchase for this build are spark plugs, pushrods, some exhaust tubing, and to finish up my windstar brackets for the windstar intake, besides oil/coolant, etc.

Anyone have any suggestions for plug gap and type to run for the turbo?

I see you"re running a 94 SC block..wouldnt still have that late model blower would you? and i dont really know much about turbo setups but I'd say exhaust powers the turbo, and your rotating assembly supplys the exhaust.. so a pulley on the crank shouldnt make a bit of difference..

Well I got my bushings today. Prothane kit all around. This is the majority of them. I also got my differential bushings the other day (MM urethane bushings) and the IRS subframe bushings should be here friday.
