351W single turbo blow-thru build

I posted these pics in the 5.0/5.8 tech section... Totally forgot about this forum. Anyways, thought I'd share my build with everyone.

These are as of Christmas Eve. I've had to make a few changes once the motor got in the car. I've changed the crossover pipe to come up front. It looks like I'll get away without having to use the oil relo kit. I had to modify the turbo side header for the crossover pipe. I did this because it left very little room for the down pipe. I wanted to run at least a 3 1/2" downpipe and rerouting the crossover pipe was the only way to do it.

I also have some hood clearance problems. I'm going to cut a hole in the hood to allow the carb hat to clear. I think that'll look pretty cool though.

I took the motor out last night to detail the engine bay and finish assembling the motor (pulleys, alternator, etc), and install the stock T-5 transmission that will not last long behind this motor. I just need something I could use to break the motor in with and to tool around this winter. Plus, I don't have the money for a TKO right now.

BTW, I'm kind of learning all of this turbo stuff as I go along, but I'd be glad to share any information I can.

I can tell ya the nice ARP engine assembly bolt kit was virtually useless. Not worth the money in my opinion.

Looks good.

If I had it to do over again, I think I would go with DIY kit as well.
What kind of power are you aiming to make?

I'm hoping somewhere around 650rwhp, but I'll keep the boost down most of the time.

Did you build that log header originally? Just wondering because it looks kind of familar in design(before you redid the crossover placement) for some reason.

No. Actually, I bought the kit from a guy on the Corral. It included pretty much everything to get it going. Since then, I've had to change a lot of it. The kit was a Cartech Street Sleeper kit for a 302 and the guy I bought it from modified it for a 351W. The turbo is an Innovative 70mm.

Ok, thought it looked like a TTI SN95 street header or a Cartech SN95 street header.

Is that at the tires? What drivetrain? I was thinking about a LM1 wide-band O2 sensor.

Got a little closer between Friday and Saturday. I'm being held up on a transmission mount, pushrods and a shifter. Here's a couple pics.

Looking Good dude!!!

I take it the 69 crank worked out ok, what did you do about the rear seal? As for me, another blown HG, so I gotta regroup. 10 to 1, 15lbs of boost, and 25degrees of timing dont go all that well together, but DAMN it felt good before it let go!!

Thanks. So far, everything is looking good. I went with a one-piece seal and some RTV. I hope it'll work out. I ended up putting the mains together a little tight with .010 under bearings. The King 10X main bearings had too big of a notch. Or my block had too little. Whichever way you want to look at it. So, I have Clevite .010 under mains and King 10X rods. I hope to finish up the exhaust this weekend and possibly hear it run the following weekend.

Ken, what head gaskets are you running? Might be time for some Cometics. Or some pistons. Or an intercooler.

What's up with your tranny? Got a C4 I'll sell ya...

Craig,

I was running the 9333's with a .020 copper shim. It was cool at 10-12 lbs and 20 degrees timing, but the weather turn cold, I gained a few lbs of boost, and I got a bit greedy on the timing. To be honest, I really need a set of heads with more cc volume, but mine are worked pretty good, and I dont have the cash to sink into another set. I've been researching alky injection, so when I swap HGs, I,m going to add a setup to keep the octane level up, and the charge temps down.

Regarding the trans situation, I got Cooks racing to build me "race" C4, and it turned out GREAT! With the PTC converter, my shift lite barely blinks on the 1-2 or the 2-3 shift. So,. I just gotta get motivated to swap HGs, and I,m set, until my stock botton end takes a dump......

Ken

Haha, that valve cover breathr. Mine likes to drip every once in a while. Right on the headers. Pretty embarrassing. Have the same valve covers, with baffle. Thinking about wraping a rag around it. Looks good.

I was worried about that. A vacuum pump is not in the cards right now. I'm sure I'll have that nice looking rag zip-tied around it.
