Turbo Street/Drift SXE10 project

Postby xeraptor » Sat Apr 27, 2013 9:42 pm

Hi lads,
decided to share progress on my turbo project.
It started as 2002 Auto Altezza with some aftermarket bits.
Looked like this.
Image

I got bored of auto and put in manual, that was easy enough + added clutch-type 2way TRD LSD.
In addition I bought Greddy turbo kit of paul c' unfinished project, which in turn came from 2.2 apexi stroker (supposedly) altezza. In February 13 I finally got around of putting it together and started the car today :).
Biggest job was to replace head gasket with Apexi 1.8mm one. Auto head + 1.8 gasket should lower CR to around 9.8:1 to safely run 1bar of boost.
A lot still needs to be done, but it's 70% complete.

Spec list:
Original Veilside bodykit
18x8J Advan RS2 with Bridgestone RE040

Cusco Zero2 coilovers
Cusco roll bars (front + back)
Cusco front underbody brace
Megan racing strut bars (front + back)

Greddy TD04 turbo kit
Greddy intercooler
Greddy thermostatic sandwich plate
Apexi 1.8mm head gasket
Blitz 535cc injectors
AEM 320LPH fuel pump
Autobahn88 oil cooler
Summit racing hoses and fittings
Toyota power steering cooler
TRD 2way LSD - Thanks Nick!

ECU - Apexi PowerFC
Boost controller - HKS EVC V
Gauges - Blitz DCII series (boost, oil temp/press, EGT)
Innovate LM1 wideband

Some build pics:
Removed 2 kilos of wires. F@!,ing alarm and jap TV/multimedia crap.

Head is back on and turbo in place:

Connecting power steering cooler.

Greddy thermostatic sandwich with oil press and temp sensors.

Autobahn88 oil cooler. The last time I buy chinese sh!t! it was leaking when fitting were tightened on and needed to be rasped to fit properly. Not sure it will hold the pressure...
Image

More updates coming.

Looking good, I see you have removed a/c condenser too, did you have to make a bracket for the tensioner at all?

Ooooh! Now this is interesting :D 1 bar of boost with just the head gasket and uprated fueling? I dont think Id have the balls to run that much boost without forging the engine :lol: Will be very interesting to see how you get on, and I will follow :D

You mentioned the power steering pump. Is that a new pump that you fitted?

You thinking of uprating the radiator? Mine gets up to 120degrees after about 5 mins sideways, the stock isnt that great :lol:

@tomo, you dont need to make any sort of bracket if you remove the ac unit. You take the compressor out (really fiddly) and bolt the bracket back in. Just need a shorter belt and thats it

Yeah, you might be right about 1 bar. I'm expecting to run at least 0.8.
Mapping it myself, so if it blows, there will be no one to blame :).

Thanks for advice about radiator, it does look flimsy. I was thinking of getting JCE10 radiator, which should fit bolt on.

mine runs 1.1 bar and i don`t think its got forged internals, it has a thicker gasket and other supporting mods like fuel pump, injectors and a decent front mount.
i really want to get an oil cooler though because it does get a tad warm when dicking about at full boost and the greddy turbo is oil cooled only.

a big ally rad keeps my coolant temp low even when the manifold is glowing. it holds so much more coolant than the standard one.

good luck with the project it will be good to see another turbo altezza done properly.

Yea, you are right about an oil cooler. I think its one of those things that must be done with a turbo tezza. I am yet to get one though :oops:

JCE10 rads have the the bottom flange on the other side compared to the sxe10....I think :lol: So it could be a case of making a hose to pipe it into the engine. But if it can be done easily, then it will be a cheap mod as those radiators are pretty cheap compared to the tezza ones.

Are you fitting the oil temp and pressure sensors to the sandwich plate then? Got any more info on that, as its something I want to do?

Saying that, I get a fair bit of boost creep up to 0.7bar under heavy load and it hasnt blown up on me yet :lol: Doesnt go above 0.5bar when skidding it though, so im happy.

As twiglett said, good luck with the project and keep us updated :wink:

Basically I bought Greddy plate (PN:12401123) and drilled and threaded both bungs (instead of buying bungs with pre-made holes from Greddy :)). I'll take a closer picture when I'm back in the garage.

Ah, I see. I have always had a bit of trouble getting my head around the oil cooler fitting business :D. Greddy oil cooler adapters are pretty hard to come by :( :(

But from what I have gathered, any universal kit that has a thread 3/4 16unf or M20x1.5 will fit.

Just order one from US.

I would go with thermostatic adapter for a street car to reduce warm up times.

Oil catch tank is a must. I've cleaned for much sh!t from turbo inlet pipe...
Image

Some bumper modification was required.
Image

Mapped the car for Blitz 525cc injectors (apparently they are same injectors as Caldina GT-T and SARD 530cc).
Runs a bit rich, but drives fine. Waiting for MAP sensor for Power FC to beging proper mapping.
Turbo blows 0.4bar max and surges horribly on throttle release. Don't understand how Greddy sells this kits without a blowoff.
Other small bits left.
1) Weld HKS SSQV blowoff to the piping.
2) Buy silicon hoses to connect boost controller.
3) Repair and respray bumpers.

my vacuum hose to my blitz blow off valve got kinked and i saw more than 2 bar on the boost guage when i was trying to figure out why it was so loud when i let off the throttle.
im surprised it didn`t blow up. :?

Wow, 2 bars on TD04?
I say 3S had near a death experience, hehe.

What power fc have you got? Do you know the part no? Where does the map sensor plug into?

I have normal PowerFC (non-turbo).
However, all PowerFCs have 5-pin port for MAP sensor and boost control solenoid.
I will not be able to use MAP sensor for load reference. Just want to see boost graph in the logs.
