The turbo was free so I was "inclined" to use it. It is a T3 from a merkur xr4ti. The Compressor housing is a .60 a/r while the turbine housing is an inadequate .48 a/r. I ran the down pipe to the front of the engine cradle and utilized a flat downpipe to connect to the cat. The only fuel management mod (should have been more comprehensive) was a 2.5 turbo chrysler lebaron fuel pressure regulator. This car ran good, but the welds in the manifold were not up to par. This cause many exhaust leaks wich in turn cost driveability and performance. The Knock counts were the real factor though. It would go as high as 20

A bigger turbine, better manifold, intercooler, more fuel, ect. Should take care of most of that. I had a hard time finding somthing that could mod the ignition though.

The transmission was old (120 K) Hense it did not last long. I also had a DSM Gen II BOV as well.

The @#% ABS booster that comes with the trofeo is a pain to plum the downpipe. That will have to be negotiated later.

I have taken the system off for now so I can engineer somthing better. At the present time my Bro drives the car in stock form with the new tranny.

I guess I could have put it in Forced Induction, but I guess It can be moved.

MENSA??????

MENSA??????

Taken from the MENSA website:

What is MENSA.....
Quote:
Mensa was founded in England in 1946 by Roland Berrill, a barrister, and Dr. Lance Ware, a scientist and lawyer. They had the idea of forming a society for bright people, the only qualification for membership of which was a high IQ. The original aims were, as they are today, to create a society that is non-political and free from all racial or religious distinctions. The society welcomes people from every walk of life whose IQ is in the top 2% of the population, with the objective of enjoying each other"* company and participating in a wide range of social and cultural activities.

Commonly known as an organization for real smart ****'*
