The intercooler and boost pipes is done, the turbo brance is done, the oil supply to the turbo is done. still need to do the wireing and oil return pipe,the exhaust system 4 inch pipe from the turbo to the rear axel, then i need to do the air filter ,fuel system and injectors and fuel pumps and also need to do the cluch(buttom clutch with solid flywheel) and need to lower the compression on the motor and im going to run unichip on my car. wil send some more pics. for now im aiming for about 450bhp on 0.8 bar boost and later all the internal on the motor wil be changed and will make the car all wheel drive and crank the boost up to 2 - 2.5 bar boost and then aiming for a 1000bhp+. the engin have prove itself and wil handel the power iets just the gearbox,diff and transfercase im worry about. if every goes acording to plan the car wil be ready and sorted on 0.8bar by the end of this year.

Would love to see the pics. There was someone on here and Facebook that managed to turbo there 220. But then stripped it and moved onto another make.

Would absolutely love one. Even with mild boost. The noise alone would be worth it

A few more pics on my project.

Had some issues with the turbo branch,boost pipes,water pipe,oil return line and the fitment of the intercooler

basically everything i paid someone to do was a mess so i had to refit the intercooler and modify the turbo branch, still need to weld the turbo branch again and modify the boost pipes,water pipe and oil return line before i can carry on with the wireing.

- it's considerable effort. it demonstrates a huge commitment to the car at hand, given the cheaper and considerably less time intensive option would be to just buy a different car that either has the power you are looking to attain off the shelf, or can achieve it with plug-and-play mods.

- it's pretty uncharted territory. You're going solo - it's not like you can refer to the collective wisdom of people who have already done this mod to this car. No support network.

- it's gonna be a pretty insane squeeze getting all the components in and the related pipework

- the time scale you are working to. 12 months if all goes to plan. For phase 1!

 

Yeah, come to think of it, I'm not sure why i said it's nuts  :notworthy:

hahaha i get your point but luckely i have build 2 turbo cars before this one.the was my every day car(2l irs ford laser) and help my father on his race car(3.4l ford sierra with twin turbos and it made 450kw on the wheels on 1.5bar boost). and to buy a car with that amount of power in south africa is to expensive and i love working on my car and to make it faster because nobody will think the car will be that fast if you pull up againt then next to a trafic light. drag racing and building cars is my hobby. the only reason its going to take me 12 months before it will be ready is because i dont have the cash to do evering at once.

This is mental cant wait to see the finished product, I seen a supercharged St200 and even that wasn't make anything close to 450bhp. All will drive mondeo would be epic! Would love to see video on youtube once its all completed bet the sound will be quality.
