I actualy have "all the parts" ..the important ones anyway.. still need all the small bits that take every project over budget (fittings, lines, etc).. the flanges are being cut still too but I can give some insight

turbos: K03 from a 2001 S4
Injectors: 36lb (a little small but they were cheap)
Fuel: 255 Walboro
Intercooler: Godspeed (also cheap)
oil: oil filter relocator kit and b&m oil cooler
cooling: Mishimoto, electric fan, proper shroud and vented hood
motor modifications: arp studs, gasket matched and polished exhaust ports, polished combustion area?
management: MS 2 (depending on when I actually get the fabrication done I might upgrade to something more reliable/just better)
Drivetrain: Clutchmaster stage 3 (they have 8 stages), 2.93 Diff
Exhaust: 1.5 OD .065wall header tube 1,75 OD collector .. gonna try dual 2.5 out the back but well see what happens when we get there..

so all the stuff listed I have, but I just got a job so I need to afford a new daily before I can start having fun... any suggestions on whats best at towing a e30 to the track? lol I was thinkin a imprezza, a 5 series wagon, or a 1 series ...


I recently bought a chinese T28 turbo (its in bad shape), me and a buddy are going to do some bench testing to see if we can make a proper diffuser next to the turbine exit and what modifications to the housing give us any benifit to its efficency .. ( I was reading something on gas turbines and it got me interested)

I dont remember what I used for volumetric effiency but heres what I got for the compressor map: (yes I know I won't make full boost at idle ) and I dont remember which vertical line is at the stated rpm, I did this a while ago


and a few other pics:
right side = before ... left side = after


before

after


oil return idea

that guys build:http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthrea...ITURBO-346-507

exhaust





its a work in progress just got to get that second car first ... and I'll make sure to do a proper writup when I get the ball rolling on fabrication

I'm currently contemplating the same thing, seeing what's out there that would be a good all year car, can tow a car to the track, and is still fun to hoon around. A scooby wagon is on my short list. Oh, and it has to have working a/c lol.

Not too much going on this winter for my car, just gonna take care of a few cosmetic things and add a few finishing touches to get everything looking and working as it should, and then next winter there should be another big project for me.

93 Talon TSI AWD. 150k no rust. Tuned by Magnus. I'm putting a clutch and transmission in it right now.

Then cams and a Holset HX35.. Hello 11's

Drive shaft good? They tend to go on those.

Cams and engine troubles on the later years

Hopefully it doesn't spend more time being fixed than being driven like most DSM cars

It has a 6 bolt (7 bolts get crank walk, it's because of higher clamping force clutches)

And I'm getting aftermarket cams

You sound like my brother. It's a solid car, it just currently has all the DSM woes. I have to take the pedal assembly out and rebuild/weld it. And I have to put a clutch and transmission in it. I have all the parts I'm just busy at work.

It was super cheap, and theres no rust. It has a $600 chip/speed density setup in it, bigger turbo, full exhaust, in dash blah blah blah.
