Official Turbo LSJ thread!!!

Since i believe theres quite a few of us turbo lsjs now, i think its time to start a New thread based on everyones setups weather custom turbo kits, or brand quality kits. Also i think it would be helpful if we have new lsj comers that want to gain some knowledge on turbo lsjs and what or how to start in order to get real boost and power on their Balts.

-Post pics of set up
-Problems
-How to
-Innovations
-Ideas
-Vids
-All the good stuff

Lets start!

Am running the Hahn stage V currently on 16psi
-S20g Turbo Int WG
-Custom 3" exhaust with obx racing muffler
-AEM wideband
-Turbo Smart BOV
-Turbo Smart Boost Controler
-60lb Injectors
-HP tuned

heres a pics when my build took place and when finished



and when finished


Lets keep this thread going!

anyone using an LNF manifold w/ upgraded turbo (heard on LSJ it hits the coolant pipe in the rear)? are most of you guys running an external wastegate? what about oil feeds and taps what did everyone do for that? and boost controllers does everyone rely on just their wastegate springs?

I havent seen anyone using an lnf manifold on an lsj. the manifold i run doesnt hit the coolant pipe, neither does the ones ive seen in other turbo lsj setups. Am runng internal wastegate which is set to 16psi. for your oil lines, is a must to tap your oil pan so you can conect the drain from the turbo to the oilpan. On the oil feed line we use a bolt that conects on the top of the block right under the turbo manifold, take the bolt out and use an oil fitting in order to run the oil feed line through there.

noice!!!! go ahead and count me in as one of the slow lsj turbo cars aswell.

and while we have this thread up. how the F%*K do you get the damn belt tight. i am starting to get a squeeky belt and its bugging the hell out of me.

the only way i could think of doing it is putting the belt on with the tensioner on loose. the i push it down as hard as i can and tightened it. is this wrong lol?????

you shouldn't have to loosen anything on the tensioner. the tensioner gets bolted into one place and you should just have to use a pry bar to loosen some tension off of it to slide the belt on
