Anyone running a turbo with no IC?
I have starting a new project/build. I recently picked up a 87 coupe with a 8 point cage, fabbed sub frame connectors and the full UPR rear suspension.
This weekend I sold the engine, trans and ecu in preparation for the build.
I am planning on running a fresh stock block 347 (8.5 comp) with TFS 190 heads, F Cam, Victor EFI, 42lb injectors, MegaSquirt, On3 70MP Turbo, and Redneck racing C4 w 3500 rpm stall.
For suspension l will be installing an AJE K with coil overs, Eibach drag springs in the rear and strange adj front and rear struts/shocks. I have a 8.8 rear with 3.27 gears and will be running BFG 275/60/15 dr's and skinnies.
I ran almost this same combo on my 92 w a 9.5 to 1 compression 331, same heads, cam, turbo and broke the block with 4.5psi @497 rwhp.
I am planning on keeping the boost down and the tune conservative on the 347 in the hope that it will live a while longer than the 331 did.
I am considering running the turbo kit with out the IC. I doubt its doing much at 4.5psi and it would eliminate some weight over the nose and I avoid having to butcher the bumper cover.
I know I'll need to have someone fab a discharge pipe with a mount for the WG. Would I need to make any other modifications to the kit to run it with no IC?
Will I be able to run 5-7psi with no IC?
I know I could do it on E85 but dont want to upgrade the factory fuel tank or lines. I am running an intank 255 pump and have a T Rex on the shelf JIC. I suppose I could try to run e85 with a set of 60lb injectors and the stock lines/255 pump and the T rex.
Anyone else running a turbo with no IC?
My goal is to be able to drive this car to the track on pump gas, rip of a 10.5 and drive it home with the AC on.
