E, here's a link to the FSM. Dunno if you want to look it over or not. But it's here if you need it. page 75 (EM-38) is the head stuff.

I got a new steering rack in the car now. I also have roll center adjusters on the front control arms now to help with the handling.

The 0.64 A/R, iwg GT2871R turbo is on with the Swain coated and Extrude Honed OEM manifold. I chose to use the OEM manifold for a few reasons:
  • It's strong
  • It's compact
  • It's actually properly divided which should mean more response
  • the collector matches the turbine flange perfectly thus no turbulence
  • This will actually get me to 400 whp
  • I'll have $500 invested instead of $1200
  • The S14 runners are actually larger than the S13 manifold's

I'm struggling a little with finding nice ways to plumb the compressor piping. It looks like I will have to fab a new hot pipe somehow. I can probably find an off-the-shelf suction/intake but I haven't found one I like for the right price. All it needs is to be 3" and "S" shaped. I have to find a way to bolt on the Apexi air filter too, they don't slip over the pipe like most other filters.

Some cell phone pics with the turbo on.

Next up:
  • Tune it in two weeks on the Power FC and Datalogit software - I'm taking a class to learn how to do it myself. So I'll be tuning my own car in the process
  • Replace my front wheel bearing
  • install fuel stuff (injectors, FPR, etc) and tune again.
  • Duct my radiator - not sure how yet. I suck at fabrication. I might just get a new radiator first. Probably a Griffin since they supposedly have one of the higher tube density's on the market.
  • Fabricate and install the lower cooling panel under the front bumper
  • Add brake ducting stuff (removed hubs, install carbon fiber ducts, install NACA ducts in bumper, run hoses)
  • Finish the head build. Still need random parts like seals, shims, oil tubes, etc.
  • I have a better suspension on the way. Goodbye Teins. Hello Bilstein!
  • Get a real, fitted, side mount race seat

yeah get a better radiator before you try to build ducting, and rememebr to get a power steering cooler and plumb it inline with the fluid return.

head is done!
lots of people dont realize this turbo head has 2 different valve stem diameters..... had to call the dealer 4 times trying to get the right exhaust valve seals before i just gave up and got them from an independant shop that deals with SR stuff. once i had the right valve seals everything went together with ease. the BC springs and titanium retainers were a nice touch. got everything assembled and wrapped it up in an engine bag till it has a chance to be installed on the car.
