Default Couple of pic of my turbo charged, intercooled 2F

This is a FJ40 turbo conversion project I've been working on for the last few weeks. Today I got done fitting up my stainless exhaust which marks the last of the plumbing - well almost. I still have to fit the battery tray and alternator before I can run the tube between the intercooler outlet and the throttle body, but that's a detail.

So I thought I'd post a couple of pics and show off my work...



That's a Garrett GT2876R turbo. The intake is a mid 70's stock unit I modified for multiport injection with a Ford throttle body and Ford fidle valve next to it.

I moved the radiator back a bit and put a large intercooler in front of it, fits perfect and yes the headlight buckets clear with no problems.



Still need to paint the body and assemble an engine before it's going to be back on the road, but I'm getting there slowly...

Megasquirt it will be. I just got done adding a couple of mods to add real time barometric correction, and turbo boost control. Here it is with the case open & attached to a simulator for testing:



The Megasquirt is a very a capable ECU with a lot of nice options. One of the things I really like is they can work with a fuel composition sender to adjust boost and timing based on the amount of alcohol in the fuel. I plan on running E85 whenever I can to take advantage of its 105 octane and run the boost up accordingly.

Another pic of the turbo that shows the exhaust to turbo detail.



And the intake

Here's how the intercooler tucked in. I was really surprised and pleased at how well this one fit with minimal fuss. I had to move the radiator over a tad to clear the FJ62 steering box anyway, so setting it back about an inch at the same time was no big deal.

Good question. As I'm sure you know MFI requires a high pressure pump, and those don't last very long unless they are effectively cooled by being immersed in fuel. So I built this tank with an internal pump pretty much first thing after deciding to fuel inject my 2F.



The coating is Line-X, I thought it would add an extra measure of safety since they use the stuff to help blast proof buildings, plus I like the look...
