    i'm not planning on getting this engine built. plan on buying a fully built long block and then swapping it in. just need some time to get that much together or at least close to it so i don't max out the credit card. been talking to micah from 3mi about doing the build. most likely getting it sleeved for added protection.

    why?

My fuel system cost around $1000 alone.. Then what happens if your engine blows up on the dyno as soon as you get the turbo installed? How will you get to work etc?

    Only missing injectors, surge tank, and fuel lines for my fuel system.

    And luckily, I don't drive to work, I take pubic transportation. If need be I can use my dad's car or my girls.

    You already have an external fuel pump, rising rate fuel pressure regulator, and a fuel pressure gauge? Injectors, surge tank, fuel lines, and AN fittings alone can cost $800-$1000 in parts easily.. that stuff's not all too complicated so I suppose you could do all the work yourself if you're comfortable with it.


    Fuel rails wouldn't be a bad idea either, but I suppose you could get away without them.

    Have rails, regulator and gauge.

    By the end of the month I'll have the rest of the setup.

    I'm likely going with a 3MI +2mm SB when I do mine

    35R is just too big of a turbo to be what I'd consider "reliable", regardless of the block. A good SB with a 3071 shouldn't have an issue, if you don't push it with the tune, and leave yourself a good buffer from the knock threshold.

    going with the gtx 3071r.

    going to add a 38mm ewg to it.

    how well would this turbo work for auto-x?

    I think the GTX3071r would be pretty good for auto-x, the 3576.. not so much (unless you're going to rev it out to 8500).

    nice.

    plan is to see how i like this, and if i want more i'll just upgrade to the 3576 when i do the engine build.


    i'm excited.

    any particular brands of ewg that are better than others?

    Tial seems to be the most popular.. never heard any complaints about them, and the v-band versions have a lower profile so they're easier to fit.

    Your plan is to modify/replace the uppipe and weld the WG shut on the turbo? The ATP turbos, AFAIK, only have an integrated flange for 44mm EWGs.

    i heard there was a way to run a 38mm, so i hae to look into it. if it requires too much work, then i'll just get the 44.
