just to let everyone know... I updated all the "LINKS" threads so that the most recent posts are at the top of each list of links, save for a few that needed to stay at the top no matter what.

so just to clarify, threads towards the bottom of the list are older...
the only place I did not do this was in the list of members cars, that list from top to bottom is oldest to newest...

thanks for helping me get everything up to date, you have all been very helpful!

edit: 2/4/2008: added the "aux injection systems of all types - LINKS" thread. thanks to isifmobile for tracking most of those links down! give him some +rep for that!!!

don't ask me about the election... just ask me who I'd rather go camping with!

If guns kill people... do pens & keyboards misspell words? Yeah, and spoons made Rosie O'Donnell fat and ugly...

added a couple suggested links, one to the parts links [thanks Jonnyd] and one in the EMS links [thanks o24drsupra]... I really need to do an overhaul and add some of the recent threads that are quite pertinent! Thanks again to everyone for their continued input!

Running 425hp on a stock ge block? Is that going to blow it, or will i be fine. Being told i should rebuild it. Yes i know its a good idea. But thinking just running 425 wont hurt it. Cause i have to build up my tranny first. Running auto e-shift

Running that much power your most likely going to have to rebuild the block depending on how hard you run the car. It will prob be the safest bet and save you money in the long run beleive it or not. Do it right the first time. Once you re buld the tranny and the block you will be able to run even more power than that if wanted.

Hey guys, I recently put this together for download as a "manual" to the GTE swap, and single turbo conversion.

-To be fair to everyone- This is the internet, and we are all different sources, so each source will probably have different answers, and I do know that there are some people out there who are complete idiots....

Use the search function! Many guys are running this kit. It's worth the money if you know nothing about turbos. If you can shop around you will build a kit for less than that. Don't forget that buying this kit is not the only thing you will buy to go turbo.

Ebay turbo kit question

I am looking to boost for cheap for now. Im trying to decide weather to piece together a basic kit or buy one from ebay and just upgead parts as I go. I have pieced together a kit for my integra and accord in the past but I know this is a entirely different car. Here are some links I came across. If they are crap tell me why don't just say "those are crap"

2JZGE 2JZ-GE MK-IV IS/GS/SC GT45 TURBO TURBOCHARGER KIT | eBay
TOYOTA 2JZ GT45 TURBO KIT SUPRA SC300 IS300 2JZ-GTE 14P | eBay

The most important parts of the setup aren't even brand name. The turbo, BOV, and wastegate are all shitty. That turbo is way too big, especially if your power goals are around 300whp. A GT45 is meant for power goals of higher than 500 whp. You'll needa spend a lot more money on internals and whatnot just to be able to use that turbo in its apporpriate range.


Save your money. Buy used stuff if you really want to go boosted. A used TiAL WG will be better than an ebay one. Also, if you haven't done the necessary coilover/springs/struts, sway bars, braces, good tires; don't go turbo.
