Well my parts hoarding has officially begun.
I took delivery of some Turbo Turtle parts today (thanks to TheChukker). Turbo manifold (T25 & wastegate v-band), V-band downpipe, 5 bolt to v-band adapter, 3" to 2.5" flex pipe (this will probably get made into full 3") and a metal coolant tube.

So I have officially started the long process of collecting parts to go Turbo... many more parts to collect and alot more money to spend to get them all!

Goal is to make as close to 400whp as possible. Yes I will be building a motor for it. (Anyone in Cali have a spare SVT motor they want to part with?)
Turbo choice right now looks like Gen II GTX2871R (one of the few I have found that are T25 inlet and 5 bolt outlet. Although I can go straight V-band outlet I suppose...)
For fueling current thinking is Ford GT pump and a Boost a pump (would this be enough?), as for injectors I need to do a lot more reading to figure out sizing for those.

Will also need to find a bigger intake manifold and throttle body, decide on intercooler and piping, wastegate choice and all the other many variables... but step 1 is complete and I couldnt be happier!!! :lol:

Well as some already know I recently picked up a daily.... Got a 01 ZX3 with powerworks supercharger on it. 61k miles.

Unfortuanetly for me the previous owner put the wrong fuel pump in it when he had it replaced last year... So the fuel pump was beginning to die on it. Have a new 'SVT' fuel pump, fresh SP463 plugs and a fresh fuel filter on the way from Tasca for it.

Honestly love the way it delivers the power. It needs some work handling wise but thats easily taken care of. Might throw the stock SVT rear sway bar on it along with some new poly end links. I really want to get a set of Fiesta ST wheels to replace the SVT EAP wheels but the tyres are basically brand new (they are crappy Kuhmo Ecsta AST all season though), I will probably wait until I need tyres to pick up a set of FiST wheels and tyres.

I already threw LED number plate lights in the back since one of them was out when I got the car, but honestly all this car needs is some minor upgrades suspension wise and MAAAAAAAYBE some tint. Its a perfect daily for me while the SVT gets worked on to be the beast I hope it becomes. :lol:

Got a whole bunch of new parts purchased for the SVT.

12.2" 4pot Wilwood Big Brake Kit from TCE Performance
Full Billet hubs with ARP Wheel Studs
New wheel bearings all round
New License plate bulb holders & LED bulbs
Lower Control Arms & all new hardware

Just waiting on the brakes coming in so I can get everything installed and a fresh alignment. Trying to get a friend to part with a F2 kit so that I can rebuild the CCW wider (they need new lips anyways)

The 01 Powerworks car has been sitting for a while, replaced the fuel pump and then the belts were making a whole bunch of noise, finally got around to ordering all new belt related stuff and a water pump for it. Will get that sorted out soon (might actually put it up for sale after I get it fixed)
