Whoa! That's bougie and ghetto!

This has been so worse as far as rigging everything is concerned than I ever though I'd do to my daily driver.

The water injection system... Bunch of speaker wire, connectors, and electrical tape. "Fog light" retro switch in the cockpit, and boost switch set to 11 psi iirc. Reservoir and pump out of my 242 GT, held where the stock airbox goes by a bunch of zip ties.

Cold start injector for said water/methanol injection... And ghetto SSQV look-a-like.

The sleeping giant...

With wastegate.

So yeah, this project is crazily rushed, and the car has to run tomorrow around noon. I'm sure the rest of what I have to do will be even more ghetto.

But hopefully it runs decently :)

Oh, turbo in question is hybrid with 57 trim T04E compressor wheel, .60 a/r housing, stage 3 turbine and .63 housing. Wastegate is 35 mm and 14.7 psi spring, injectors are 360 cc/min 3000GT VR4 injectors... 2.5" exhaust, Woth R-Line ECU, etc etc etc... Hopefully it all works together to some degree.

You know you could have given me a call on this. Sure if like Kenny you'd called me yesterday I would have hung up on you because of how busy I was, but still.

550 whp on stock bottom with stock pumps. and pump gas.

the overloaded 850 is stock longblock except cams and rods... and plenty of people have made over 300whp on stock rods :) that's all i'm looking for.
