well i got bored and had some spare cash so i decided to Turbo the daily.
d15b7 w/ a6 camshaft
stock engine otherwise. 240k miles. 10k miles on the rebuild.
mhi 13g Turbo with volvo 13g compressor housing all welded together lol.





quick question though. what kind of pressure lose would 5 foot of 3an cause? oil pressure before Turbo was 8-10 warm idle now 3-7. 40 psi at 3k now 35ish.

I love it.

Dirty, gettin the job done.

How much power you going for? I think a good 160-180whp would be great for a daily. Be enough for close to 100mph in the quarter. Not too fast, but fast enough to keep you interested. :)

yeah shooting for 180ish. runs great. i just need to get my 02 bung in so i can do some tuning. only running 4psi for now. once i get the bung in there I'll turn it up to 10 and leave it.

that would be the perfect sleeper... I agree on teh welds - I might look into touching those up if I could.

If it runs, and you can get it tuned, it would be a blast, regardless of what direction you decide to go.

I approve :D

What happened to your exhaust studs for the #3 runner?
Isn't that a oil/water cooled turbo? I don't see any water lines...

Otherwise its a pretty cool little hmt setup, as long as you used dryer duct for the charge pipes of course :tt2:
