Also like the title of the thread, are there any big turbo sky's out there? Any info you'd like to share as far as what components will hold up to power and what doesn't?

Now, if your the guy thats going to be going to a Drag strip after slapping on a turbo and putting on slicks, don't be surprised if your axles or even diff goes. If your going to be just doing street stuff(like gay rolls) then just watch your shifting with the battleship transmission(clunky) we have.

Can we start by asking you, what are your power goals and for what application will this car be used for?

Bear in mind that installing a larger turbo unit is in many ways like tuning a conventional engine for semi-race use with peaky cam etc.

You lose down below what you gain up top. While many people seem dazzled by peak power numbers, some of these cars are a pain to drive in normal traffic because you rarely get up into the RPM range where the engine produces those trophy numbers, and are normally slogging along lower down in RPM ranges where the stock engine had more (sometimes far more) flexibility.

If you are on a search for big numbers, so be it, but just bear in mind that there are trade-offs. Try to strike a reasonable compromise depending on the use you'll have for the car.

ya im very aware of it but i dont have a huge turbo anyways so there not really much boost lag or power lag at all in normal driving. I have full spool at 3100 rpm. I know compared to stock 2200 its not as quick, but its also not as bad either

Ok well the application will be more just in the driving around town but have power style. Im not the biggest drag strip guy, but at the same time its nice to have RWD car so you can use it.

Miller, why did you get rid of your sky?

yes i have a safe spot for it. I also have insurance to cover it if something were to happen.

Finally your talking about big turbo sky's and then having a car with no lag. Which is it that you are looking for? I think the 2871+ethanol is a great combo. It gives you the max that the car can do in stock form and really has very little "lag" per-say. (spools in the early 3k rpms) If you want a "big turbo sky" in my mind, you are looking at a built motor with a 35R/6766 on it to go for big power. So I am a little confused by what you mean.

The 47R on my car should spool at 5500rpms. Lag just gives the V8's time to catch up

Does anyone have drawings or blueprints to the turbo manifold and downpipe for the 2.4? I'm looking to piece together a custom turbo "kit " and if someone has already got drawings ....well it would be a tremendous help ..let me know ...thanks

You both just reaffirmed my insanity in my co-workers minds (random laughter out of the blue)...

Miller, you coulda just slammed the Supra engine in the Sky :P

Oh wait, that's been done (where as stupidly fast Supras are a new thing, lol)
