when you go turbo , you wont be able to run a panel filter .with out fabbing something up .pod filter is the easiest way .


my car to make nearly 400 hp

ive got Garrett GT3582R turbo
indyblue 1600 cc injectors
i had a wolf3d ecu
surge tank with bosch 044 pump and walbro intank pump
turbo grind cam
vernier cam gear
double valve springs
4" exhaust
38mm wastegate
turbosmart fuel reg

thats all i can think off atm

ive changed some things . im now going for 600 hp

new forged bottom end .
45mm wastegate
ems 6860 ecu


What a beautiful engine bay. :shock:

That looks incredible.

Did you have to move your battery? Which side is your battery and boxed pod filter on? There is so much going on in there I can't quite tell!

Thank you so much for the list, it certainly gives me a much better idea of what is required of a turbo setup.

Did you go and take that picture just to answer my question? If so double thanks! :D

Best of luck on your 600hp setup, mate. What do you think you will need to install, upgrade/replace to get that kind of power?

Thanks, mate. :)

Also, did you paint your rocker cover? If so, what colour is it and what type of paint did you use? It looks great! :shock: I haven't seen paint like that before. I didn't know you could get such a smooth and reflective finish when the rocker cover seems to have a kind of rough surface.

That looks great. Thanks for taking that photo for me. :) I thought I was crazy when I couldn't see your battery anywhere. Now I know why! What gauge wire did you have to run from the boot to the engine bay to power your starter, etc? 0 Gauge at a guess?

Also, what is your PCV hose going into?

Man I feel naive, but what is a catch can? Is it fed back into the intake manifold at all? Or is it just pumping out into open air? Don't worry, I'm not the EPA. :lol:

Thanks, mate. :)

A catch can can suck back into the air intake . Mine doesn't . As my car is a track car . It catches all the crap that would normally sit in the bottom of ya bbm . Blowby etc .

Oh, so it just prevents oil and gunk from your crankcase from entering your intake manifold and being burned?

Thanks for the info, mate! :D
