Default first turbo buiid


here are photos of my 72 el camino turbo build. never posted much just lurking and absorbing information, which of course i found extremely helpful.

it is a junkyard lq4 when took apart there was water in cylinders and of course surface rust,cam bearings were pitted and flaking. everything else looked ok. so i bought new bearings,cam, rod,and mains. also got some ebay head studs, btr trunion upgrade and springs tick stage 2 cam and ported ls6 pump. cleaned up pistons new rings and gapped them to.028.

tranny is a t56 with viper 30 spline output shaft, hinson shifter and monster stage 3 clutch. 12 bolt with 3:73's and a true trac diff with 33 spline mw axles

ms3 pro ultimate, 1000cc fic injectors and a weldon fuel system, s475 turbo t6 1.32 ar and 2.25 hotside and 4" downpipe.

thanks everyone for the knowledge and help you guys gave without me even asking. i will try to post pics in order.

car is running been driving it around(couldnt post video) this boost is so addictive i love goint into boost. playing it safe at 10psi and it feels awesome what a rush. starts to spool around 2800-3k and pulls to 6500. already planning forged bottom and more boost for next year
