Deuce's Turbo/Motor Build Progress Thread

car has been turboed for about a yr and 14k miles now and still runs like a champ..

it's only been 100% since about april so alot of that 14k was just taking it easy.

Here's how it sits currently.

Performance
-Custom turbo kit
-3" coldside charge piping
-2.5" hotside charge piping
-50 trim t3/t4 garret turbo
-60# injectors
-NGK 1step colder plugs
-type s bov..soon to be changed
-3" catless dp
-3" custom exhaust w/magnaflow resonator and no muffler
-ttr tranny bushings
-cosmo short throw shifter
-exedy stg 2 clutch
-new oem flywheel and slave
-Trifecta tuned for 10 psi
-Hallman es manual boost controller
-innovate lc-1 wideband
-full 3" exhaust w/ no muffler






dyno on stock clutch just to hear it




here's some vids of it i made recently of the new exhaust. i should have a dyno of the setup in a week or so. first time @ the track i ran 13.94 @ 109 and 2 14.0s @ 108.


YouTube - ‪2.4 turbo cobalt. exhaust idle‬‎



YouTube - ‪2.4 turbo cobalt quick pull‬‎


finally sitting down and planning wut i wanna do for the future. im looking to get a new place next jan so im trying to have the big pieces ordered so i dont have to worry about them

here's what i have planned out so far.

diamond forged pistons 440 ottperformance.com
carillo rods 849.99 ottperformance.com
ARP ECO head studs 134.99 ottperformance.com
ZZP valve spring kit 179.99 ZZperformance.com
valves 339.99 ottperformance.com
main studs 132.99 ottperformance.com
piston rings 130 ottperformance.com
intake mani
Devils Own Meth Kit 200 CSS purchase BOUGHT
zzp 2 bar map 34.95 Zzperformance.com BOUGHT


Still unsure as to wut i wanna do with the intake mani but ill work on that later. my shop can make one for me. its just a matter of wut i wanna do.

i may or may not go with a new turbo, ran a bolt on and tune ss tc on saturday. for the most part we're even depending on the speed he'd beat me or id beat him. (friend has video, still waiting for it lol) but ill be updating this as i gather all the parts

i just ordered the meth and 2 bar so when it comes in ill be adding that to my setup and dynoing.

ever think of a 2.4 manifold and throttle body? and your internal build its pretty impressive. I was just thinking rods and pistons.

i first bought it off Maven from css (one of the most knowledgable cobalt guys on the net)

and from wut it seems it was a kit made by Rebel Auto Works. Since ive had it i replaced everything except the turbo mani and dp

i paid 1300 for it and it came with a gt30 turbo. turbo alone worth 1300

should be 300 easy. i havent dynoed, but i will after i install meth. maybe before, whichever situation presents itself. i did run a ss/tc that is on par with most 3xxwhp ss/tcs so itd have to be somewhere around that range as well
