little vid of my 2v diy turbo 97 gt mustang

Just to fill you all in, all engine mods are as follows:

stock 99 pi heads untouched and stock pi cams
stock plastic intake
stock replacement forged rods
stock replacement forged pistons
75mm TB
TFS plenum
intercooled homebuilt single turbo system with garrett 60-1 @ 7 psi

Car went [email protected] mph Drove it 30 miles to the track and 30 home, so I didn't get everything out of it I would've liked to for fear of tearing something up. Here is the vid at turbomustangs.com, enjoy!:

Looks nice. I should archive that one for when I need to convert my 97. What compression ratio are you running?

Around 10.5:1, that is why I am building a new motor. I should have around 8.9:1 with the pistons I am going to use this time around. I originally built the engine with nitrous in mind but that bottle filling bs got on my nerves.

How do you like the BOV and Wastegate that you purchased from
Ebay. I am looking at the same type of items. How is it holding boost?

Thanks,
Eric

Everything I purchased off ebay actually works flawlessly, I have no complaints about either the wastegate or the $47 BOV. If either of them tear up, they are pretty much dispensable anyway. Throw them both away and buy new ones for under $200! Don't believe all the internet bashing on ssautochrome stuff and ebay intercoolers. I have both, I wouldn't buy a turbo from ssautochrome, but thier wastegates are awesome. I bought a good garrett turbo, that is one thing I wouldn't skimp on.

One other question. Looking at your video etc, do you need the tubular front end to run your piping? It looks like no. That would be pretty cool.
The bosch bovs that I run are $25 from advance auto parts-but I am running two of them. It seems the consensus on the ssautochrome bovs is that they are good. Also, there are a number of people who had good luck with their turbos. Still tho, I wouldn't buy the turbo.

You could probably build a kit similar to mine without the tubular stuff, but the k damn sure makes things easier if you know what I mean! Does the bosch BOV make the much needed psshh sounds when you let off? Mine is really loud with just 7 psi. I don't know who makes my bov, I don't think it's SS. The wastegate is definitely ss though.

The bosch bovs are pretty loud. Since there are two of them it is sort of a stereo effect. Lots of psshh.

Who makes a quiet BOV? Nice vid and nice job on the set-up!

The best bet for quiet is a bypass valve similar to what most supercharger kits include. It vents pressureized air from the intake manifold or dishcharge pipe to the post mass air pre compressor piping (before the turbo/blower but after the mass air meter so no metered air gets released). That is the quietest system I have ever heard, and with a draw thru setup it is the most efficient design.

What is the benefit of having two BOV's? Do you ever blow-off too much pressure?
Also... where did you mount them?

I guess if one bov isn't large enough to release enough air, two of them can be used. I think the reason he is running two bov's is because they are very inexpensive!
