Default Another turbo Pontiac build

Here's my story, I have a 1970 Lemans sport, 455,KRE heads, performer rpm intake, mild cam, Cliffs Qjet, tremmec tko 600 and a 12 bolt. The guys I hang out with have deep pockets, 70-150k into there cars, I can not compete with them. (House,4 kids regular job=no money for car.)
Wanted more power for the least amount of money. Searched the internet about turbo charging my Lemans. Been saving and thinking about it for a while. I have been speaking with Jeff Palazzo a hole bunch on this.
I had a set of his headers for a firebird. The passenger side bolted right up. Not so lucky with the drivers side. I am cutting and welding that one in a big way. I am doing away with the rag joint and putting a ujoint on, frees up room.
I was going to go with F.I. from Proff. prod. and use holleys h.p. computer, but for now I decided since I am cash strapped, to go with a CSU carb, Spoke to Kevin, he was great, building me a unit now.
Putting axels and different gears in the car, working out the clutch problem that comes with the extra power I will have now.
It will take me some time, but I'll post as I go.
When it's finally running I will go pro it!
I bought the s475 from jeff, going with a tial waste gate, turbosmart bov. I plan on running 8-10 psi since bottom end is stock.
I at least scare mt big pocket friends after this!

Nice to see you got it posted up here, I'm sure a lot of people will be watching this build.
I've got my go pro ready for that first ride.

The car looks good in the pics, just the way I like it, coming apart for a turbo build. Lol

Plugging away, got carb hat, gears came yesterday, axels will be here tuesday, I have to pick up the dr. header, made some fit changes. Its tacked if it fits get I'll get it tigged. I cut my manifold today, Ill post some photos later. I paid Kevin from CSU today.
BullChit to anyone who says they are buiding a "budget turbo".
Turbo, wastegate, bov,carb, wideband a/f gauge, boost gauge, flanges,clutch, exhaust............at least $3500-4500, but I guess thats cheap for 300hp more!

Default guess what console

Just some photos of the goodies, turbo is new but I was to lazy to take it out of the box.
I am not using the F.I. intake for now.

If you can guess what console that is out of. I needed cupholders and 12v source. Click image for larger version

Default Turbo Headers, 3rd Brake Light

Took the header on and off about 10 times, p/s pump on and off. Think I got it, have to tack the other pipes in and see.
Check out my 3rd brake light going on the package shelf!

Sorry Jeff had to cut and kill your header to get it to work. Great starting point, and all the ????? are being used just repositioned!

The seats are not bad at all, light and very comfy. The bulsters hold you in place well.

Looks good! A s475 will work great on your car and will probably add a lot more than 300hp.

Default budget my $ss, Getting there though

The word budget and turbo should never be in the same sentance. What ever you think it will be add 30%.
My radiator(new aluminum northern, 2 months used) had to go, ordered a 28" wide rather than 33" wide. Got the turbo mounted, hood closes. fuel system almost done, Kevin from CSU should be shipping carb shortly.
The left side header still in the works, rear gear change and moser axels going in Monday. Click image for larger version

When you see how much power the hair dryer makes and compare that to what your friends had to pay to make that power NA you'll think differently.

It always sucks when your in the building stages, talk to us when you get to the driving it stage. then you'll be happy as a bearded clam.

Give us a running total once in a while
