Yes indeed! It's now a reality. Well..to a point. The injectors I have are too small (came from a Dodge Dakota pickup) so I have got my hands on a set from a Toyota Starlet GT Turbo...only one problem. The connectors are different! So I'm on the hunt for Toyota connectors to make them fit then I'll be good to go. I don't have a host for the pics at the moment so anyonw who wants to see the pics as I have them thus far can see them here: Wonder Woo
It wasn't as straight forward as I first thought but not that difficult at all. The biggest problem I encountered was to get the oil filter away from the downpipe. I had to use a Toyota 110 filter...and that required me to replace the threading. The a/c piping had to be removed (and SHALL be replaced early tomorrow...PRIORITY I assure you) The other problem was the air-filter. The intake side of the turbo was pretty much resting on the top of the a/c compressor, and that required the power-steering hose to be raised slightly out of the way and the piping for the intake run through a smallopening made in the chassis leg, putting the filter under the right fender. The radiator has been adjusted slightly, pulling it more towards the front of the car. The radiator fan also had to be trimmed to give clearance to the downpip as well. My advice: Have the intake run to the left side of the car...and offset the manifold to compensate the downpipe going inbetween the a/c compressor and the oil filter. If I had made the shop do that i would have saved a lot of time and energy.
I did however drive the car breifly under boost (the blow-off valve has been removed temporarily pending the injector installation), 5 psi of it..and it felt nice! I'll keep you guys posted.
