    Pros and cons of EGR delete

    Sorry, no offense, but that's not how it works. EGR's function is to reduce cylinder temperatures which limits the amount of NOx emissions produced from combustion. NOx levels increase a lot when cylinder combustion temperatures go above 1600*C/2912*F. Exhaust gas is inert, which means it will...

    bwalt's MSP build log

    It's January and I'm still driving the MSP.... winter's been rather mild this year so far. Changed oil today and emptied the catch can. Looks like it's doing a great job keeping the vapors and sludge out of the intake.

    College Student First Car Build

    Exactly what I had to do. You may have to start threading the nut for the stud you trimmed and wind it down before putting the other three nuts on. Otherwise when the flanges are clamped together you cant squeeze the nut past the stud. Hope that makes sense. Also recommend nord-lock washers...

    Oil squirter delete?

    Do not delete your oil squirters. They are there to cool the pistons and lubricate the wrist pins. Kind of important, especially on a turbo engine. You can get the AWR pan or Speed circuit sells a proper baffle for the stock pan. Your oil pump link did not work but I think you're referring to...

    Turbo Replacement

    No, the CX turbo has a different size turbine wheel and will not fit the garrett housing. I'm not sure what you mean by the flipping the flange... it's positioned the same as stock. The downpipe bolt hole spacing is what looks different to me.

    Turbo Replacement

    Read the specs for this T25 turbine housing, they list all the different garrett turbos that fit: https://www.turbokits.com/Turbo_Chargers/Garrett/Turbine_Housings/T25_Flanged_Internally_Gated_Turbine_Housing/5532/#galleria ATP made a special stainless steel housing that fits the larger 60mm...

    Turbo Replacement

    To me, it looks like the bolt holes for the down-pipe are positioned differently. Here's what the stock turbine housing looks like:

    How much boost can the stock pistons handle?

    It really depends like 323 said.. So many variables with age, use and unknown maintenance history of the engine means you take a chance when increasing power. That being said, the stock engine in good mechanical condition can handle 200whp, for how long though would not be certain. Have to...

    How much boost can the stock pistons handle?

    You have to buy pistons, sorry. Stock pistons and rods use tapered pins. Forged rods require floating pins which come with new forged pistons.

    MSP build, advice welcomed too

    In that case, grab your self some stock compression 9:1 forged pistons with 0.020" overbore. The wiseco's should be readily available. I'm stoked to see how your build turns out!
