Default building turbo setup on my own?

i have searched an not really found any clear results so my question is if i do build my turbo setup on my own and i take my time and weld everything the rite way can i have a reliable turbo setup i am only planning to boost at about 7-8 pounds and i really just want reliability but if anyone has done it on their own please lmk how easy or hard it was and i just kinda need some feedback to convince me to either do it my self or have a shop build it and btw i am very mechanically inclined and have access to air tools and welding equipment.



thanks- delsol

maybe you should have looked harder.....

turbo d reliability thread

its part of the stickies on the top of the forum. under the FAQ thread. hence the use of the term FAQ.

<- before i pulled my built y7, it had 14k miles on it with a ebay turbo . pulled it apart and it was perfect.

Seriously, what do people have against punctuation? Do you talk in run-on sentences in real life?

i fail to believe this statement. i have looked through your posts and it seems you have the education of a 12 year old. maybe you should learn to pay attention and you will not have to make threads like this. case in point, the stickies at the top of the section that answered your question prior to you making this thread.

btw: before you say it, i know i do not use capitial letters in 99&#37; of my posts.

i guess i just didnt think to look in the faq thread i am so sorry and dont play that whole i post like a 12 year old card, and i know my stuff man i just like to back up my thoughts with other peoples knowledge on the subject and i dont like to read thru other peoples threads to search for bits and pieces and thanks for the link but it just feels like d-series has gone from helping people to bashing any one who posts a thread it is turning into streetcar forums in here

fixed it for you. see how easy that was? thinking ahead is something people who modify cars, have to do. little pieces of information is what is all over the net. there is a reason for it, people don't know everything. to learn something you have to be willing to dig for information and sift through all the bull shit people post.

we/i do not bash people with honest questions that have not been answered. or when people post a question that doesn't get brought up much and could be addressed again. but you said:

which is obviously covered in the stickies. this makes you seem like you want to be fed the answers to all your issues and make us build your car for you. if we do this, you will not be happy. since your touches will not be part of the build.

again i state the fact that will make you have productive threads and keep people from bashing you or talking shit:

THIS IS D-SERIES.ORG NOT SPOON-FEED-THE-NEWB.ORG

have a nice day and i hope this thread gets locked soon as to keep you from getting an lot of neg rep. before you say "i don't care about neg rep blah blah blah", (trust me) people help less when the poster has a lot of neg rep.

honestly, you should leave your car stock. if you do not have the time to research, you do not have time to fix the car when it breaks. if it breaks on you and you ask for help, 99&#37; of the time its not an easy or quick fix. trust me, wait till you have more time to mess with the car and do research.

^this is the best advise i could ever give to someone in your situation

thanks man i was actually just sitting here thinking i may just leave it stock

because i need a reliable car and i may do a small turbo setup but nothing more i just want like 170whp but i understand the time thing and i may just invest in making the car nice for daily driving
