PostSubject: Project T.U.R.D.   Sat Feb 26, 2011 10:26 pm

..Just realized I don't have a built thread for this bad boy, So Here goes (copied from my intro..lol)


Lets start off with a little background. She started off as a bone stock ESi turd, But it was my turd, and I loved her. So naturally I did what any young car enthusiast would do, I cleaned her everyday, and did little things, here and there.

Here are a few pics From the Early days of my DSM addiction (est 2007)


First day of ownership:

Cleaned her up, and snapped these:

After that I did little things, Like intake, exhaust, ETC, then My interest kind of tapered off, untill one fatefull day, I got into a pissing match over on a dsm forum, WAYYY back in the day, and decided that It was time for some boost.

Pics and modlist from the first turbo setup (2009):

and the modlist form that "era"
engine:
stock bottom end
9.8:1 compression ratio
new top end
New auto transmission

mods
Tinted windows
16" wheels
2.5 turbo back exhaust
12:1 fuel management unit (FMU)
Taillight blackouts

Turbo setup:
cast log style top mount exhaust manifold
cxracing .57trim t3/t4 hibryd turbo
custom 2.5" intercooler piping
type-s blowoff valve
3 layer silicone couplers
ball and spring boost controller
3 pod a pillar guages (boost, Air fuel, oil pressure)
xspower 38mm wastegate
-4an ss oil feed line
-10an ss oil drain line
38mm wastegate open dump tube
Front mount intercooler

That setup was on the car for roughly a year, and long story short, I let a girl dive my car, The end. The line to the wastgate heatsoaked and cracked, and the car overboosted ALOT, then died.

At this point in time I decided it was Time to build myself a monster. This is also about the time my life got really busy, and hectic... Any way, I was not really concerned with working on the car, because at the time, I had my TSi AWD to rely on, for a while. But that quickly came to an end when a mail man decided to Illegally park in a blind corner, thusly totalling my 1g :(

Fast forward a bit, I was enrolled in college, needed a car, and had limited funds. I had the 2g sitting in the driveway waiting, So I sent her off for a new engine. Shortly after the new engine, some asshat decided to back into me, cracking my talon bumper, so I put on a 2gb eclipse bumper I had, while I fixed the talon bumper

Here are the most recent pictures I have (nothing has changed, except for the wheels):
