So i turboed my ecotec and was happy with that for a while makin 342rwhp :D



But now plans have changed, sold the v6 turbo setup last year and now fitting a 2j with a borgwarner s363 and a t56 manual to it :)

Done a bit so far, so ill be updating slowly to try catch up on the build, hope u guys like it. I know sumers has got his at a shop over east and theres a VT there too with a 2j in it but I havent seen a 2j VT here in WA yet :D

Few Pics of welded up runners:


Manifold pretty much all finished just need to get my mate to weld the end of runners on the header flange and on the collector ends:




Gonna smooth the bay, so made up some plates to get rid of these holes etc

Started cooler pipework:


Wasnt happy how the drivers side ran coz i wanted them to both go thru the plates to be simmetrical so changed the rotation of front housing and will be like this(still gotta shorten it 20mm):


And thats where im at :D
