Default 2000 ssei turbo!!

this is my latest endeavor, i only drove the car for about 3000 km with the gen v on there and decided to go turbo! so i ripped all the stuff of that had anything to do with the blower started installing the cartuning turbo kit that i got used, but still in good condition. i get my LIM today and then i can complete the build! i still need to figure out what i'm gonna do for intercooling though, i got the intercooler and all the piping with the kit but a core desinged for a w-body is impossible to mount on an h-body unless i delete all the a/c components on the front and get all custom piping done too. so i think i'm gonna end up going with the block off style intercooler from zzp, that 'll allow me to run up to 15 psi or so and with the cam and heads i should be in the area of 425-450 whp with a good tune of course.
you can also see in the pics i have the rear modified mani with #6 cylinder turned for better peformance, and i also have a electronic DMH exhaust cutout, sounds good!

Nice.

Have you considered going with a L26 upper/lower intake manifold or an L36 f-body setup? They probably flow better than a gutted m90.

i actually plan on running a stattama upper intake as soon as my car budget gets built back up again so the gutted m90 will do for now. besides i chunked out quite a bit of material from the inners of the m90 case... should be good to get me started.
