Wow, sounds like a cool project. Would love to follow the progress. My wife had a '01 protoge' 5, was a fun little car.

Let me get this straight, you have his phone number, the one guy that could answer all your questions, but you come here instead and don't give us all the information?

Sounds like fun!

Biggest thing is to have patience. I ran out and didn't do it right hence I abandon'd the project. Well, it worked so I shouldn't say I didn't do it 'right' but I got greedy and if I had spent another week or two on it, it would have been awesome. I may still finish this project in the future as we have some extra cash.. but it may be on a different car that has a 6 rib setup.

Here is a shot of the full mockup on a scion xA (same engine, but more room to work with it).



The biggest thing I ran into is that I had the TB after the blower. The MAF was reading all the air the blower was taking in but none of that air (unless I was WOT) was making it into the motor.

Looks like that blower was meant to be on the motor. Looks like there IS a manifold under it, though small, but it'* there. WIth FI, once you hit boost, the design of the lower intake isn't nearly as important as if it were N/A.

You need to figure out:

> How much air can the motor ingest under it'* current N/A condition?

> How much air do you need to push to reach your desired boost level?

> What pulley ratio do you need to run to achive said air? (crank pulley diameter ratio to blower pulley size.

> What can your stock injectors flow and can they flow enough? If not, what size do you need to get and can you modify the pcm or trick it to run the proper a/f.

Those are the hardest things to figure out. Actually mounting the thing isn't that hard. My design used a plate so I could collect and funnel the boost into the stock runners. However, the motor I run has the intake on the front and a very tall hood so it worked.

email me boogieq at gmail if you need any other help. I don't check these forums enough anymore. Hope this helps somewhat.

That'* almost exactly where I wanted my project to go.. I simply did not have the access to the tools to make the manifold, nor the $$ to have it made for me.

If ONLY i could weld aluminum.
