We dropped the entire power train to be able to have proper access to all of the areas that we would be attacking. Scott took every single precaution to make sure that the wiring harness was safe from heat, that all sensors were properly positioned and gave great attention to detail.
Once we took the time to properly prep all of the parts for install, the kit started going onto the motor. A turbo being bolted onto a motor for the first time ranks right up there with seeing your child being born. It's a beautiful thing and you immediately imagine all of the great times the future holds.
After we put the motor back in the car with all of the turbo hardware, we started plumbing the intercooler and intake piping, making sure to install everything with plenty of clearance and fitment. The oil cooler is installed and hidden away behind the intercooler thanks to Scott's creative work.
When you take the time to properly install a kit and go that extra mile, you get an engine bay that looks like this. Nissan could sell the car this way and no one would question it. Attention to detail, taking the time to make sure it's perfect and going above and beyond ALWAYS results in quality.
Now, on to what we have all been waiting for! The numbers! What does this kind of work net you?
Just 5psi on pump gas! This is just getting started. You can see the torque come on really hard and fast with peak power just after 3500! That leaves plenty of power band to really enjoy.
Here is the safe, fun and finished product! At just a hair over 7psi, we see about 550whp and serious torque. There is still room to grow within this setup. This is a built motor away from over 600whp.
At the end of the day, after all of the hard work, there is only one thing that matters, the customer. Brad is very happy and said that he's learning how to harness and control all of his new found power.
