Default Another Turbo Build

what's up fellas. I've been a long time lurker here and figured I'd post up my current project which I hope to complete late sept. Here's what I've got so far. Going to run a Mid mount turbo kinda like MGH but I'm just going to run a single 76mm 1.01 ar, PTE 46mm Waste gate, Tial q BOV, Air to air intercooler. I'm not quite sure on injectors yet I'm kind of hoping for a little advice on that and the tuning part of things. anyway here's the progress so far.

This is a older technology turbo but at the time I was unsure if I'd be able to tune this and if I cant I can unload this thing to someone else






The inter cooler and BOV and waste gate should be here tomorrow hopefully!. she's not much yet but hopefully it will come together.

Heres the truck

Yes I do! haha I've been playing with dodges long enough that I know that's the first thing that will blow up. I also tried to send you a message last night I've got a ton of questions but I have to have 25 posts lol i'd like to get ahold of your tuner and see what he has to offer I've read all your post and seems like he has his stuff together.

Thanks fellas Hopefully it will pretty fun. I used to own a 896rwhp SRT-10 so hopefully It'll make this truck at least more fun to drive. as for the trans mission I'm searching for a T-56 out of a SRT-10 and that should make the truck way more fun to drive plus let me make the power I want to make.

The things we don in search for more power, lol. This will be a good one to follow.

Josh is really busy but he should be able to get you set up with tuning, but it really is best if he's able to either have the truck to tune it or at least have it on a dyno, especially with a turbo since they can be a real PITA to tune, but when done right, totally worth it.

Exactly I agree about doing the dyno tune I believe it is the best way to do it. I'm not a fan of mail order tunes but I'm all the way in Texas that's a long drive. hahaha but id really like to get ahold of him and speak with him about tuning the truck

Like the stance. What suspension kit are you running? Good luck on the build. I subscribed. May be interested in the future.

Use Mike at L&M for either a fortified auto trans or the T-56. He was going to do the T-56 in mine before I chickened out at the last minute. Josh at HHP also confirmed that the manual trans can be run with our modern computers.

With either choice, tuning with Josh is absolutely as critical as Mike's transmissions.
