Rotated turbo in my fsti

Recommended Posts

Can any  of you wonderful people see any problems with a rotated turbo set up in my forester sti ? I have thought of a couple .

1/ my perrin fmic boost tube is right in the way (who should be used to alter this )

2/ my header tank could be in the way (where would you move it too)

Any input would be greatfully received and I would just like to say that most of my projects come to fruition so any words of wisdom will not be wasted .

So I have decided to go with a full kit from RCM but with out the exhaust manifold as I already have that part this brings costs down by £600 plus the sale of my existing turbo and various other bits will reduce the purchase to £2550 .

Can anyone shed some light on any unforeseen problems that I may encounter? or point me to someone who can . I would just add im looking to avoid Enginetuner.

bar from having ro much room LOL. 

length of Turbo oil pipes

I assume you have to raise/space up the induction headers. 

You might need to upgrade clutch fluid mutol RBF600 still dot4 but better boil points than dot 5 or 5.1

lag and or heat sheild.

Thank you Tony ! the oil lines come with the kit (ive been doing some research)and the air in side of things is no longer under the manifold unless your talking the hot air which I have seen routed under the manifold.

Your saying the clutch fluid needs to be replaced because it will be closer to the turbo? Also would I need a out of tank fuel pump . 

Would a gt35r be laggy on a 2.35 or should I go for a gt30r ?

Odd version i,d seen i think route for intercooler pipe!!!!! or old age moment

yes, giving large can boil and peddle stops down

 

 Also would I need a out of tank fuel pump .

not sure but dont think so, athough upraded Pump and Pressure regulator as minimum. Injectors depending on IDC on remap. Also depnd on previous set up upgrades and new mods for power or  new Turbo etc.

iffy 50/50, i`d prefer less lag over bhp pub figures, use bum dyno, so gt30. But better to ask on scoobynet, as more peeps have been down this route.

How's the doggo going to be installed...? 😁  

That's some impressive welding on the pipework.

yeah I got mocked for wanting flip over switches to stop her operating anti lag and w/m injection , If I leave her in the car for a moment she gets up on centre consul and presses all the switches not on purpose of course ………… or is it.

  • Full dyno print out once complete
  • 0-60 mph test & 1/4 mile run on a drag strip
  • Recording your G's on a skidpan
  • Calculated theoretical top speed & braking distances, or better yet an airstrip!

Yes please, keep posting.   Pics of the installation into the engne bay, as it happens part by part, will be interesting.  

Never tire of photos of well engineered stainless and polished parts!

Yes I'm going to use the standard cams as a bit of an experiment but I have sneaky suspicion that my clutch won't put up with it, if it doesn't I'll pull the motor and refresh it, do the clutch and fit tomei adjustable vernier pullies and get the lateral 272 cams for the single side avcs 

Mark at lateral has given me such good prices on all my bits and pieces that I don't think I could afford to do it with out him.

It’ll be interesting to see how it turns out with the standard cams.

What clutch are you running currently & what might you replace it with if needs be?
