Kiss my ass :p
I've built kit's before, I know what im doing. :lol:
And unlike ALOT of people, i've done my homework.

-Fuel computer is comming from Dee, XFC
-Intercooler is comming from a comapny call "just intercoolers"
-The Turbo is a Garrett t3/t4 with a V1/V2 Compressor. (Built from a turbo company in dallas, TX)
Stg II Trim turbine in a .63 A/R T3 Turbine Housing, it's internaly wastegated too.
-All the little crap, like the flanges\gaskets come from a guy on ebay who makes CNC flanges. He has AMAZING craftsmanship, they are perfectly cut, polished, and they are thick as hell!
-The manifold is comming from a local company, don't know where they get them from, but hey how can you screw up a manifold?!
-Might buy rods, not sure yet. My goal is around 8psi so im not to worried
-I still need the BOV,Oil lines,injectors,downpipe,havn't bought the XFC yet but im forsure going with it.
-Boost,WideBand, Oil Pres gauges.
The intercooler piping is a universal kit 2.5" and I think thats it.

The only thing that might FAIL, is my POS atx 4speed.
If it blows I won't eat for a few weeks, then I will buy aminzer's tranny :)

No offense man but you can screw up a manifold real quick.

Some of the parts listed there are kinda iffy. Ebay parts regardless should not be purchased. You are going to run into a mess of trouble with mix-matching all these companies parts. Better off with Hiboost or Tripoint.

Re: Jort's Turbo Build!!! :) :) :) :) :D

It's a cast mani, and when you say ebay parts it's not like ebay makes the parts.
I bought flanges, it's not like I bought a JDM TURBO for 200bux!
Mix and match parts? How do you thing Hiboost or Tripoint, put kits together?
You don't see a Hiboost BOV, Hiboost wastegate, Hiboost turbos, or Tripoint Oil Lines!?
They put parts together, and fabricate the mazda spec parts, I don't see how my method is better/worse than what they do to build kits.
I bought my flanges from a guy on Ebay, he has his own website...he just used Ebay to help expose his site =/ Doesn't mean they are crap parts.
The flanges I have are 10xs better than a magnaflow flanges/f2/tripoint ect..
They use thin 1/4" flanges that can bend under extreme heat. Mine are 1/2" now try to bend that!
I realy want to know what parts im using are "iffy" I don't buy "iffy" parts ,I buy what I think is the best.

Re: Jort's Turbo Build!!! :) :) :) :) :D

Yup :shock:
Should be fun, i've upgraded my tranny a little but it still could break.
I've talked to a few other members, it holds up.
But its just kind of luck since aminzer blew his in 30 mins, other members have been boosted with a atx and still are running strong.

We all hope you boost and it holds and you throw any of your knowledge back into the pool... we've all just seen these threads before Jort that's all.
