The first item for the new turbo kit build....

This is the intercooler core. It's about 27 by 12.5 by 5 inches in size.

After we determine the final pipe routing, we will be welding the tanks and inlet and discharge fittings... This thing is substantially larger than my old intercooler.

No, those will be determined when we set the final routing of the pipes. We'll cut and weld them into the tanks...

We pushed way beyond the capabilities of the system we had in there... So, with this rebuild, we will be building in the efficiency range of the new turbos... This ought to offer the dependability and power we want....

lol, no.... I guess it could be but it most assuredly would not be comfortable... It would work for PBB though... Save wear and tear on the soles of his shoes...

So, 10 days after the last post in here, I have an update...

Corey sold my old Turbo kit and tomorrow the new turbos and all associated components will be ordered...

This includes two Street/Race PTE 76/75 CEA Turbos, waste gates and the blow off valve/s.....

Here is a link to the specific page at PTE.... http://www.precisionturbo.net/Street...T7675-CEA®/279

These have the forged compressor wheels and will include the ball bearing center section. They will make the same power with less total boost or more power with the same boost level. This is due to the size and efficiency as compared to the old 67/65's or the 62/65's we first used... They should be in the shop by the time I arrive there...




The picture below is representative for now....

T4 exhaust housings and an "H" cover... The "H" cover has a 4" inlet and a 3" outlet.... They are frick'in huge...

"Shit be gett'in real up in here".. as one of my catering friends out here on the rig commented...

I also got some good news today with crew change.... Not me but the other crews...

One of our Roughnecks just bought a 2010 2SS Camaro while he was at home... He has been grilling me already about the Camaros, and I am going to get him hooked up here on Camaro5 and drag him kicking and screaming into this build thread in the next day or two...

His name is Tyler, really good dude...
