Re: turbo omg turbo turbo turbo!!!!

im looking into building a custom turbo... does it really matter what the actual turbo is? i understand that the piping and hoses and fittings will have to be fabricated to fit my i4, but i have a friend with a subaro wrx who is selling his stock turbo to put in a bigger one, can i build my kit off of that turbo?

Anything can be done for the right amount of $$$.

Re: turbo omg turbo turbo turbo!!!!

Honeslty dude save your money and buy something with the potential to actually be fast. These trucks aren't high performace machines - they are GMs entry level pick-up.

Re: turbo omg turbo turbo turbo!!!!

why is $ this only issue? because of the manifold and intercooler?


i agree with you coyote14 these are a weenie of a truck, but i got mine through repo and it already had 20k in suspension work to it, so its worth it to me to force this thing to be fast.

Re: turbo omg turbo turbo turbo!!!!

do some searching on that. I think there was some members that ran the sts setup but I cant remember the outcome. I may be a noob to FI but how can you run 5-7 psi without intercooling. Kaboom comes to mind!

superchargers kits arent intercooled, and 5-7 psi isnt that bad. anything less really wouldnt be worth it i would think

But superchargers don't always need intercoolers because they don't get nearly as hot as a turbocharger normally would because they don't have the hot exhaust gasses going through the unit.

Re: turbo omg turbo turbo turbo!!!!

Superchargers get a lot of heat soak from being attached to the block, it's never a bad idea to run an intercooler on one...( a solid heat exchanger can help with this as well ) lets face it force induction, no matter how it's done, will create heat. If you're going to supercharge this truck go with a procharger. It will help with heat, and should be the easiest to figure out a mounting method.

Re: turbo omg turbo turbo turbo!!!!

well looks like the sts is a turbo not a supercharger so yes, you would need an intercooler. but what about the piping? thats the expensive part. cheapest estimate i got was $1400 for custom bending and fitting, but if those universal pipes work for you, im gonna be the next one to throw an sts turbo on my colrado!

Turbo!

I am all in on the turbo mod. Anything you learn when doing this, let me know as I, too, am considering, very seriously, aquiring all needed materials to perform this RAD modification. As for the ported T.B., absolutely! It needs all the flow possible with the pressurized air. I would like to know about exhaust mods, as for the best setup (after turbo) for street use. I was considering using a CARB! Since the intake will need to be totally custom anyway. Only issue here is the computer controlled fuel/fire timing and cam advance. If that could be resolved, it should be a bad dude! Then again, injection, if modified correctly with a way to modify tuning on the stock chevy ecu, should be equally as good, with obvious advantages for normal street operation. Maybe converting to the F.A.ST. system is a better way to go. As the FAST control system is well known for superior performance and tuning capacity far beyond anything chvy has ever made, should be much easier to tune to one's prefered state of tune, w/o issues! Yes, this means big $ as it always will with any mod worth doing to a street based vehicle. Its all about the owners desire. Much rather do this than to dump 60,00 dollars PLUS on a new pickup thats still locked down as for performance. Dull to me, thankfully everyone isnt like me! Let me know here on any and all methods found to takle this mod, as if it's done right, with regard to keeping with a good looking truck with some serious H.P. is concerned. Body just need to be straight with slight mods for the Turbo mod and considerations for traction! Let me know people, no hard feeling on any comment, but I do prefer those who, instead of bashing one mans dream, will actually be constructive to the modifications becoming reality.
