Default One off Single turbo Dakota.

Hey, new here...looking forward to sharing a few words with some peeps on here.

Anyways, just finished up my turbo system for my 1996 dodge dakota. Started from scratch and made a pretty good system. Theres a few things I would do different next time. Like using stainless for the log instead of aluminzed. That ---- sucks to weld.

System utilizes a Garret t04e turbo charger, 1.00 turbine, and .70 compressor
tial 38mm wastegate
Blitz bov
bar/plate intercooler made to size
Aeromotive digital FMU and inline booster for the fuel control.

Anyways heres a few boner poppers.

Wow, I really like the set up. If the turbo is not extremely braced expect it to break the manifold. I see tons of cars at the local shop with thin wall manifolds that all fall apart from lack of bracing.

Nice work. Got any ET's?

I have the the turbo flange and the header flanges braces together. But plan on making another brace for the cold side to connect to the alternator bracket.

No et's yet I have to put in a new tranny. I blew the old tranny when I was running my paxton on it. Ran [email protected] with the supercharger, pulling 2.2 60 foots!!. hehe

Also there was a problem with the turbo so I have to send that back as well. When it gets hot it is locking up. Its like its not alowing for heat expansion. Ive heard that on some garrett journal bearings they installed the bearing backwords.

Looks pretty badass. You should paint the IC and the charge piping that can been seen flat black so it doesn't stick out so much. Either way it's a clean looking setup.

this is the best thread I've seen in awhile, I love seeing something different. And I'm especially digging the darth vader theme.

Good work man....
