Another Almost Boosted 3.0

I have a lot of critics so i waited till i am a good ways in BUT here we go.


EDIT: NEW PLANS IN POST #2

Goal: Around 400whp
Turbo: T4/T04E A/R .81
Wastegate: Tial 38mm
Blow off valve: HKS SSQV
Intercooler: Spearco 3.50" x 7.9" x 24" 2.5" in/out
Tuning: Emanage&e-01 w/ Z32 MAF

As some of you know i am putting my last effort in my I30 with boost if it doesnt work then thats the end of me and this car. And also as some of you know i did just purchase a boosted maxima with a 3.0 in it.

Here is the thing, the Maxima is a good car, quite well built, Jay25 is the one that put the car together. Also since i have owned it, which has been about 3 months im finding little things i do not like and things i do not agree with. For example the extremely low hanging feedpipe and downpipe.

Obviously a lot of stuff needed to be redesigned and a lot of stuff needed to be taken off the car. Then i turned and looked at my I30, currently has a good motor in it compression is in check just had an O-ring leaking oil behind the timing cover.....Comparing motors the Maxima has a 3.0 with an MEVI and thats it, My I30 has a 3.0, Rev-up cams, and an SSIM with all the 3.5 goodies attached. Why not just move everything to the I30, right? So thats what im doing.

Now that you have the background lets get into what im using. Obviously a lot of the parts from the current turbo maxima, which includes turbo, intercooler, tuning equipment, sensors, etc. Biggest problem right off the bat Injectors, im using top feed 3.5 injectors, the turbo uses TT 300ZX injectors, so i purchased RC 440 top feeds. Im still debating about what BOV to use. I have a synapse and an SSQV. Also i question if i should bump up to 3" turbo piping, what is on the turbo now looks like 2.5" and it can barely get 350whp out of it.

On to pics, and as i was saying O-ring took a ****, and yea its leaking oil, a massive amount:

Thats just over night:


more drippage and just how much oil is all over the place:



its all over the suspension and brakes aswell:



Here is most of the tuning stuff:


Z32 MAF:


RC440s with clips:


And here are the 2 cars in questions here is the current turbo'd maxima:


And my I30 with mostly everything on the front end taken off(epic hood strut too):



Suggestions and advice is very welcome'd, and me being who i am there will be criticisms so go.

I think everyone tries for 400 whp but I don't know how many stay there for very long with a stock motor. Are you gonna stick with the 02VI?

400whp is the goal i will very rarely be at 400whp, i will be keeping the boost very very low most of the time, as the car will be daily driven. The previous car made 350whp with this setup and pretty much ran forever with it.

But yes the reason im moving things to the I30 is because of the SSIM and its cams so im keeping all of that stuff.

I wish I could find an e-01 that was reasonably priced, but nice setup. I would suggest the synapse for bov. Get the 3" since you are looking for 400. As far as wg the 44mm is "safer" since it bleeds off quicker but nothing wrong with 38mm, you may have issues trying to push higher hp out of 2.5" with a 38mm though. I currently have 2.5" and 38mm but it is just a dd and has not seen the dyno nor a professional tuner yet.

I heartily agree with a 02VI over 00VI for boost. Good luck with the project, can't wait to see it out on the track!

I will be getting things done very quickily, its kinda dependent on when my new feedpipe and downpipe get here to when i will be finished but im hoping sometime mid march, then the car will be heading down to be tuned. As i want to be able to drive the car around for a good couple of weeks before i try and drive it down to IA in April.

i have a 38mm already so im wondering is it really worth it too bump up to the 44mm.

But the more and more i learn about BOVs the more and more i see how it really does not matter what you use more how it is setup, the SSQV has a flutter at lower boost levels which it sounds alittle cool but overall i dont like it. but as i go deeper i realized that if you are only making like 1lb worth of boost that flutter isnt going to hurt a damn thing.

Im interested to see what this car will be like. NA the bastard pulled like hell with these cams and the SSIM, it will probably feel like warp drive with this setup.

3" is critical for boost, pretty much required. Ditch the ssq bov. Are you going to be opening the motor for this oil oring deal? I ask because, putting stronger head bolts might not be a bad idea. It's usually the first thing that fails before rings fail. With head bolts and a conservative tune, should be able to easily handle even 450.

The reason im pulling the motor is to install to fix the oil leak. I still have my HR head studs, i might throw those in there. But yea i wanted to do about 320whp on low boost, more than enough to keep that car exciting.

Im hearing mixed things on the synapse, my friends at a shop here in NC are telling me to stick with the SSQV others are saying go with the synapse.

just some progress, i havent done much this past week, but today i got started tearing into the turbo. The car was sporadically smoking so what i found was alittle interesting, in anycase i have to say hats off to Jay25 for the most part this car was put together pretty well. im finding alot of stuff done to this car that i like and will end up on my car, but here are pics.

bumper off:


IC off(ignore teh stolen TV box ):


here is where things get alittle interesting, there is a film off oil on the inlet of the turbo, but guess what i found inside the IC:


thats right nothing, it was so dry i think i saw a tumble weed bounce by. On the exhaust side of the turbo there was some oil on the fins, i will get it completely off tomorrow and take pics of what i found, jesus christ this thing was a b1tch to get off. i got all the bolts off and said **** it I'll finish the rest tomorrow:



and i finished installing the ES swaybar bushings, everytime i got frustrated i would go back and work on the bushings because nothing goes wrong with them lol.

I like the 3.0s for boost. but since you have ample time and space to tinker with the 3.5... good job.. I would offer a DET manifold for the boost.. but now ur using the 3.5..

Being the first running a setup anything like this should be interesting. Just my luck for an update everything caught on fire.......

New feedpipe and downpipe still have not got here looks like i will be dumping more money into keeping my little storage spot for another couple of weeks. the exhaust on the ex-turbo again my luck is all welded into 1 piece so i cant break it down and use it on my car with out cutting it up etc.

Typical delays but other than that ordered a new wideband for my setup, and i need to pick up a laptop to do some partial tuning when this thing finally coughs into life.

OK this is coming back to the top as im finally putting this car back together, got the turbo manifold all wrapped up and ready to go right now i just finished setting timing. Some updates on what has been happening the past couple of months.

Clutch: This is the most recent hold up I was going to use my spec Stage 2 but, the clutch disc was starting to fail. good thing i caught it now rather than later, so i looked around and saw Fidanza made clutches and they were cheap, i ordered it and waited for the longest time just to find out they didnt make clutches for the maxima anymore , so i had 2 options that were under $400, get a Spec or an ACT for $40, being my spec failed i couldnt bring myself to pay another $340 for another one so i went with the ACT.

Turbo manifold: "The Turbo Header" t6378tp had designed this one and i was waiting on him to finish up the down pipe and etc. As some of you know i dont mind have a low car, my car is almost sitting on its bumpstops. Not good for handling but its an A32 how well is it really going to handle. My thing was I want to maintain ground clearance, i want to be unhindered by the turbo and its extra components. It was a tall order but im glad t6378tp said "ok lets see what we can do". so i still have a 3inch dowpipe, all the needed turbo stuff while maintaining ground clearance of an NA 4th gen. Works for me.

There were also questions about motor mounts, im using Urethane mounts, just pulling them off the 97 and putting them on my I30. I might be requesting some assistance on a base tune. i plan on modifying the tune that the 97 was running because it had smaller and injectors and stock cams, just use this to get it to a place it can get tuned.

And asking if there is anything else that might creep up on me that others have experienced.

Like stated above I would said timing around 15-17, a/f around 10.5 in boost and a stock rev limiter. Also I would tune the car so it's pretty much like stock while out of boost

Well problem. My car has ABS as the rear manifold will not clear the ABS, any suggestions, im thinking just push it back about 2-3 inches to clear.

you maybe able to get away with just bending the hard lines alittle, if not the hard line will need to be re-routed or just delete the whole abs system

It would be more of a hassle to delete it then just move the module. I like my ABS anyway.
