Figured I'd give my proect a name since everyone else was doing it, lol but anywho.......YUS!, its back on :happydance: well, after a long time of searching, talking, and more searching for a certain part...i finally got it in my hands today. for those that dont know, i've been looking for a good heat exchanger for my air to water intercooler for quite some time now....well, i finally got it. the cooler consists of a Bell core, and custom end tanks made my Boost Factory.
I already have the water tank done and waiting to get put back in, along with the electric water pump to cycle the water through. And now i can finally install my Walbro inline fuel pump as well lol
also, today after work, i stopped by at Modern Automotive Performance and picked up yet another little toy. Since the boost controller that i have in right now isnt all that great (VERY inconsistant), i picked up a Hallman ProRX manual boost controller.
now to just find a garage to install everything and start cranking up the boost.
Such a happy day for me :happydance:

Very nice! I have been contemplating going a different route for my heat exchangers as well. They seem kind of small to me... I think I'll run them for a while and see how they do. I will be interested to hear how this works for you.

Hey mike i gotta see how you ran your boost controller cause i got mine all hooked up and i still cant get past about 12lbs of boost
05-15-2008, 11:04 PM
well, i got a lot done, but with my luck, its not all done yet :( I got the water tank in, relocated the catch can, got the water return line in, and got the power distribution box hiding lol. I could have gotten more done, BUT my retarded brain forgot to grab the water pump from the garage and the hose that i had was too small for the heat exchanger...well, photobucket wont let me log in at the moment cause i couldnt remember my new password so now i have to wait for that stupid failed log in crap to go away :headsmash::headsmash:
05-15-2008, 11:34 PM

w00t, fixed my boost problem, now im back at 15psi....for now lol
05-18-2008, 12:04 AM
man crank that to 20psi! send a piston through your hood, and a connecting road out your block and go drink some :beer:. haha jp i love your car, have you built the internals?
05-18-2008, 04:57 PM
Lookin' good Mike!
05-18-2008, 06:56 PM
stock internals. still gotta wire up the aux. water pump, start cycling water through the IC, and install the fuel pump before i crank it up to 20psi or more. thanks for the kind words guys.
06-05-2008, 11:40 PM
w00t, finally had time to install the fuel pump..sitting at 17psi too....time to install the stiffer spring on the MBC, the "soft" spring is maxed out >_<
