got a few questions. how does your booster work on a turbo setup. boosters run off vacuum right/negative pressure. but turbos would make the intake have positive pressure right?

if i'm running an AU motor. standard and turbo it. would 32lb magna injectors, 5 to 1 rising rate reg and a intake Bosch, is it 044?, pump be enough fuel?

the brake booster has a one way valve in the fitting at the end of the hose at the booster stopping vacuum from escaping, which also stops boost getting in, and your engine still creates vacuum at idle and light acceleration, so any vacuum used is replaced when the throttle is released or the car is off boost... remember that turbo's dont make boost all the time or without load..

unless you got a j3 or similar to trim fuel down at idle the 32lb would be to much.

otherwise its a trial and error thing, all you can do is set it up run it on a dyno and see what the fuel ratio is like,
if its to lean up top, you either need to adjust fuel map by a j3 or similar if the fuel is maxed out use larger injectors, the effect of using larger injectors is you then need to trim more fuel down low so the larger injectors dont over fuel...

when i first set mine up i had mine dyno tuned 4 or 5 time using different combinations of regs,injectors, before i found a combination that was spot on and i was happy with...

You will know if your injectors are too small, the ecu will not be able to get the comanded afr's needed.

A standard regulator should be all you need, input the injector settings set the afr you want and all should be sweet.

HA! I knew you could customize the standard intake!
I did have a bloke telling me you can't weld cast iron, I said if it's made of metal you can weld it!
Jus with that last pic, is the pipe off the original outlet going to join to the big pipe off the back of the turbo as the wastegate? (I think that's what's already been said but just want to clarify)
MORE PHOTOS OF THE MANIFOLD AND ASSEMBLY OF THE LOT!
5 year and still kicking, this is a thread worth keepin alive!


dunno if this was directed at me, but it was under a post i made of pics of the customised standard manifold and thought this thread could use a proper bump lol
heres some more pics -
standard outlet ground down to accept 2.5" flange for wastegate piping:

now to be honest, i never ran the car with one of those manifolds as i came across a custom tuned length for cheap, but a guy in SA has used one and i think he made 220-230rwkw or so using a T04e or similar.

theres a few improvements that i learned could be made after doing each one (only made 4 in total) and i'm sure someone could improve on the design even more (ie. turbo placement through different pipe design). so if you have the tools and spare time, research how to weld the metal properly and have a go.

certainly cheap and relatively easy to make and ticks all the right boxes when it comes to cost.

a steam pipe J pipe could also be made to mount to the outlet of the standard manifold once it has been ground flat - a 2.5" flange mates up perfectly ensuring a good seal can be made. this removes the welding cast iron part for those that aren't keen on the idea and also works a bit better in terms of flow through the manifold.


anyone else had a crack at some true DIY setups?

most likely because the thread was made in 2005 - the images are most likely deleted by now

This is why we always encourage people to upload photos to Fordmods, rather than linking them from other sites :wink:
