Default Turbo

Okay, so I race my sebring,... not a race car by any stretch of the truth and I'm kind of not wanting to do it so much anymore... but my question is... I got a small turbo for it and I want to know what anyone thinks the best way to put that on would be... I'm not even sure what size it is or anything, but it's a good size. I'll send you guys some pics of it when I get the suspension dropped a little... Just let me know what you guys think...

uuummmmm,.... I dunno what else... I got new rims in the mail, and I'm about to order a new transmission and some eibach springs to lower it about 2 inches... Then a new cannon for the back... as far as the turbo goes... well.... I have the turbo and the bov with a few hoses and wires hanging around. I'm going to buy a turbo timer and boost controller for it once it's in and ready to go. My intake manifold should be able to hold, but I'm going to get new gaskets anyway. I drive a 1998 Sebring JXI

did you buy a turbo exhaust manifold? how many miles are on the car? youre not going to be able to run very much boost on your stock engine.

indeed there is...just buying a turbo and having it bolted up will work, but not for very long, and you wont gain much before it blows the engine.

I've been taught that a good rule of thumb is to never go over 12 psi with stock internals. My shadetree mechanic assures me the internals can handle up to 14, but I only plan to run about 8... I have vacuum, oil, and coolant lines and we're actually going to mount it at the back. Just before the muffler. It's supposed to be the latest craze down here, and I want people to know that mother is turbo'd... the car has 130,000 miles, but it's been overhauled about 2000 ago...

It's just the stock 2.5 liter V6... nothing special.. hasn't even been competely restored yet.. Bob and I are going to bluebrint the block in the next 2 weeks hopefully, and replace all the bearings on the crank... I want to add some high comp pistons to squeeze a few more ponies out.. Koing rims on the way, and headers being built for it as we speak... I am determined to get this bitch turbo charged...

you cannot use high compression pistons with a turbo! you need to find a 4 cylinder to turbocharge...that V6 is going to be a nightmare..
