thanks...ya,i did all the fab work myself. i estimate it cost about 3k for the setup. the car is 97. i never got the part # for the injectors, but louis from 2R20 performance knows what they are and sometimes has them in stock. you can get ahold of him at

im going to dyno it when i install the clutch. its really fun to drive now with all the additional torque and power. i broke the tires loose in 1st gear last night. the tiny ball bearing turbo spools so quick..its sick:D

Nice car, even nicer turbo... but after driving a GA16 for 6 years, I'm not a big fan of that motor. Has almost no sweet spot and has no power. And with that turbo, what are you expecting? 180 to the front? MAYBE 190 w/ out gernading the motor (unless the bottom end is built)? I have a 93 SE-R and a 96 200SX SE (GTi-R going in now) and I've always believed that money is better spent on a SR20 that can handle the power rather than the economy motor of the bunch. And w/ that much money, a SR20 can easily put 300 or so to the ground w/ no problems! :D

Not knocking your car (its beautiful), just commenting on the GA16DE... thats all ! :D

true, but the 1.6 is really cheap to replace and easy to find compared to the 2.0. and once people start making power with their 1.6's then maybe manufacturers will produce some bottom end parts. then we can just up the hp level. i know the turbo can handle it, it has a 60 trim t3 comp wheel that flows 31lbs/min which is good for ~300hp.

Nice job

Looks very good. Layout is very nice, intake plumbing, cool air setup, BOV recirc all looks good. Looks like someone had to reposition the BOV and the nice clamps should be on the charge pipes not the MAF. Regardless, hats off man!

Can't wait to see some #'s and hear your input. My car is well on it's way. Just waiting on the plumbing myself ;) Rest of the bits are collecting dust. By the time it's boosted it will be time for me to put it away for the winter;)

ya, i know...the tbolts are just for looks right now:D i couldnt find any at the shop the right size for my charge piping. also, that other flange opposite the blowoff valve was to test one of our blowoff valves that we designed and machined...they look like this one

as you can it doesnt recirculate....so i didnt have it on very long. it has a real nice sound, and its really light weight

JavierB14, Since you custom made the parts, you think it will be available to everyone in the near future? I notice you have Max-Rev website in your sig, isn't that your shop/store? Like to have a similar set-up with my car.

Nice job! I notice you used a breather filter on the rightside of the vavlecover but not one at the back which connects into your intake manifold. I did the same thing when I made my CAI. You're letting unmetered air into your intake manifold. Put another breather filter back and plug the hole in the manifold. Thought I'd point it out! Anyway I love the way you set up the piping. damn I need some money! I want some boost. :(

yes im using a filter on the CCAI crankcase air intake and decided to leave the PCV valve alone. i have basically turned the PCV valve into an "open" system instead of a "closed" system like OEM.

The PCV uses vacuum as a signal source, opening and closing. an engine only sees vacuum at idle or low engine speeds. this is when the valve is flowing or allowing the vapors in the crankcase back into the intake manifold. whenever there is positive pressure(boost, backfire, etc) in the intake manifold, the pcv valve closes, preventing flow of the vapors.

when the PCV is closed, there is only one other way out. through the CCAI. mine is open....venting the vapors to atmosphere. a closed system would flow the vapors back to the intake stream from the air filter. i dont want carbon coated piping or compressor;)

and yes, my filter may allow some unmetered air in but when my engine sees vacuum its either at idle or at some cruising speed. ur not making power at these instances, meaning its not harming the engine. as soon as the engine/turbo is "loaded", it starts spooling or making positive pressure.

its worked for me..i should have my wideband installed this weekend i will have some real data then.
