Hellrot Turbo Build
 
Well ladies and gentlemen, it has begun. This morning at 8am, we started.

Phil gave me the inspiration with his cooling system thread, so I didn't take pictures. (Actually I forgot my camera) but you can all imagine what it was like :rofl:

First, compression check, 190-200 psi on all cylinders, I was very impressed! :thumbup: Especially for 195,000 miles. BMW makes great I6s! Not that anyone didn't know that...

Removed intake manifold, all exhaust, cams, radiator, bumper, cams, and finally the head.

Cylinder walls were in good condition, obviously they looked like it had many miles, but it was very well taken care of.

Mounted T3 manifold and turbo, mocked up downpipe, intercooler.

Next we will put in the .140 MLS headgasket, tighten up manifold and turbo, make exhaust, intercooling piping, and ect.

But, I am leaving for New Orleans on Friday, so it won't be done untill after I get back :thumbdwn:

I'm getting very excited already!

I will have pics next time I work on it, as for now, I am going to sand blast the valve cover, and repaint it.

Looking forward to seeing how this goes.

What numbers are you hoping for?

I will be doing the same eventually.

FenderBender 12-26-2009 06:50 PM

Running 10psi daily, around 300whp, hoping for 350whp at 15psi

cmybimmer 12-26-2009 07:04 PM

Good luck Matt! Next time take picatures!

FenderBender 12-26-2009 07:13 PM

I'll be sure to take picatures :eeps:

:rofl:

I'm very behind in car pictures actually. I want to post a good writeup on the whole process, but we shall have to see.

FenderBender 01-13-2010 08:45 PM

UPDATE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!! I said we would have pictures wednesday, well here they are! Will be getting many more quality ones Sunday.

Sorry for crappy pictures, forgot my camera, so had to resort to the phone.

Head off, you can see the old motor mount, new one is on. .140 MLS gasket prepped and ready to be put on.

Back on, fresh paint on valve cover, new valve cover gasket, hopefully no more leaks.

Mess of wires, hoses, and connections under there.

Can just see the manifold.

Crappier picture, can see turbo placement. It's clocked with the outlet facing downward. Freshly rebuilt turbonetics 50 trim journal turbo.

I would hope so cuz it would suck to have it occur during school (even tho i may take summer classes http://i573.photobucket.com/albums/s...er/1shifty.gif)

And Frank, early May was the original plan. They had to postpone tho
