VEHICLE STORY

I bought this Car on February 16th 2016, bone stock except for a radio and the Mishimoto Radiator. I then proceeded to research for about 6 months on turbocharging, and began compiling some parts. First thing I built was the MS3x and I began playing around with it while it was NA. Finally on December 26, 2016 I successfully turbocharged it. I put everything in one at a time with one week intervals in between for tuning and making sure everything was right.. My first turbo was a SR20 turbo, then I mounted a GT2560S that had a weird turbine wheel that didn't fit right in the housing I bought. So I had it machined and it worked great. Then I bought a GTX2863r turbo and the Begi cast external gate manifold. I just installed the manifold and turbo, as well as a 3.25" downpipe, to 4" midpipe and a 5" exhaust tip. Unfortunately I was unable to fit the resonator I had due to it being so long. My next steps are to street tune on e85 and then dynotune on e85. My goal is 300whp by using boost taper to keep the torque at or below 230 thought the entire rev range.
