Just going to stumble into this thread.... Only realised you're turboing a V6! Cannot wait to see this finished
Reason for my stumbling in: I'm attempting a similar project but over a much longer timescale. Also, I'm using a battered 1.6 156 as a base car, I love a good sleeper car.
Using a 1.6 means a full body rewire, full suspension overhaul, brake upgrade, rack upgrade etc.... Not for the faint hearted. I have a few donor V6's and have pillaged the best parts from each (not to mention looms, ECU's and engines of course
For my engine, I got a 166 3.0 Super for a song (as it was rotten and beyond repair
) thus it has a healthy 3.0, 6 speed box to match too. Also has Brembos which might find their way onto my 156
As for my turbo idea, I was thinking of a rear mount job and scavenge pump. External wastegate set to open at 4psi. MF2 or similar with 7th injector before the throttle.
As for the turbo itself, well this
is it (same one in my sig).... I have future plans to mate a slightly smaller one to it when I'm properly set up to do so
Keep up the fantastic work and I can't wait to see this in action!
