Maybe a Supercharged Turbo Altezza in the making??

Postby not_too_fast » Sun Oct 17, 2010 10:35 pm

Right had a tip out the county bounds at the weekend. Hit a ditch fairly straight on and here's the damage before and after i took off the throttle body, air intake piping, intercooler and piping... and rads...

Think it can be straightened or a whole new cross member in order?

After i get this sorted.. hopefully in the next two, three weeks? I might be able to get my hands on a fully forged 3sge.

So i was thinkin while im at all of this bolt on a HKS GT-SS turbo and manifold into the mix as well as the blitz compressor I'll take off from my old engine.

I know its not as easy as doing that so don't insult me with saying that, its a big job i know but a forged engine with the s/c boosting at 0.5 and turbo maybe at 0.4 should be more than able for that. Not lookin for massive massive power gains here just to be the first one to do it in Ireland?

Along with a standalone ECU with SERIOUS map, thicker head gasket, what else am i looking to get? Seeing as i have all the FMIC with piping, stage 2 SPEC clutch, callipers and discs out of a supra and alot more bits that had to be done when the car was supercharged..

Again i know this is a big big job and any help would be appreciated

I think if you do go ahead with this, one thing you'll have to change is your username :lol:

I don't know enough to advise you, but I'd suggest you spend a bit of time to think about how you'd set it up.
i.e. will the turbo feed the supercharger, or the other way round, or could you run both in parrellel ?

They'll both be running different boost at different RPM, I think the main benefit is really to reduce the lag of the turbo which is why having a large turbo (more lag) is most rewarding.

Best of luck and keep us posted
