UPDATE!

need to fabricate two flanges to connect the turbo's outlet to the intake and to rig the oil pump/tank under the turbo... stay tuned

Nice filter and carb. Is that those 75 mm inlet like $20 air filters? If it is those things are junk for filtering air. Even on my dragster its more just to get rocks and gritty water from flying into my carb venturi off the tires.

yep it's a 20$ filter... like you said it's more for keeping big objects out... and mostly for the look.. i nearly never ride the cart exept to go get the mail (400m ride)... lol

UPDATE AND FAIL REPORT...

actually its the brake caliper that failed... the turbo is now oiled! the only thing left to do to actually try the new setup is to link the compressors outlet to the intake... and plug the gas line

here are some pic... you can see the snapped brake...*SIGH!* i now have to buy another caliper... i think i'll go hydraulic this time...

It's a 13g off of a 1g automatic eclipse/talon. For the record the 14b flows more than the t25 that came on 2g dsm's. The 13g was the smallest offered on a DSM hence most likely to spool on this engine. Good luck on the project.

Nice work so far. But couldnt you have taken the turbo piping off the engine to paint to avoid all that overspray?

You should finish this, and tape the result. I kind of want to see what happens.

simple... take the bolt, cut the head (that leaves you with a stud) then take a 1/2 drill bit and bore something like 3/8 deep into the coupling, tighten set screw and tack weld the stud to the coupling from the inside. that makes you a "bolt-coupling combol" lol
