hey guys I'm super new at forced induction... but I bought a precision turbo kit off a friend. It has 300 miles on it so it's cocked locked and ready to rock.

I paid 500 and got: precision turbo 50 trim, precision intercooler, vortech bov, tial wastegate, revhard manifold (for honda), intercooler piping, and a hose... I still need to get a 255 fuel pump, and a new manifold.. I plan to run a safe 6-7psi because I don't have any supporting mods.


questions, comments, concerns are more than welcome !







These are the parts I was thinking I need to buy, if you disagree or know of anything else I will need please let me know. Also if there are better or cheaper parts that I should use let me know !


Oil line kit: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/T3-T4-T3 ... 4155fa1560

Wrx 440cc injectors: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/02-05-wr ... 19c87ed0da

Turbo Timer: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/APEXI-TU ... 27b85c4b33

Manifold: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NISSAN-A ... 5add7a28ea

Fuel pump: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/WALBRO-F ... 588bfb8a28

Exhaust(vrs tubing kit is cheap for the diy'er): ??

Treadstone intercooler piping: I think the piping I have will work, but let me know after I post pictures..

Downpipe:

Personally, I would go with treadstone parts for everything else you still need. You got a deal on those parts though!
Treadstone's DP are on sale I believe, check their clearance section.

440 injectors max out around 310whp. At 6psi you'll probably already be using them at about 80% of their capacity. Look for mopar stage 1 srt4 injectors, 577cc. usually aroudn $100, or as cheap as $50 on srt forums.

You should be ok with stock fuel pump for a while (years possibly), I wouldn't have it on the first install list. Add it once you get more funds or feel like it's going out.

Honestly, the turbo 101 thread is good for learning about turbos, but when it comes to the questions he asked, it's not going to help him out. My post didn't say anything turbo 101 says.

And 440cc's will be ok, but you really don't want to be running your injectors near full capacity. Not to mention if you want to turn the boost up later to 9, 10 or 11psi, 440cc injectors are going to stop you.

Watkins, you don't have to listen to me. But I will tell you if anyone is a personal friend and acts like the mother of someone looking to upgrade their coilpacks cause they think they are making "so much power", you really don't want to listen to what they have to say.

Just trying to be a friend here. Don't listen to people who think they know it all because they are running the wrong set up. Do it right the first time. It'll save you headache and money.

Ditto that man. Seems like no one can ask a question related to turbo in this forum without it turning into a shit fest.

OP you need to find another forum that will help you pal. Seems like the mod staff is non existant here

to help you with your questions.

440s are fine, But bigger is better especially since the bigger ones cost the same. I have been running 440's for 4 years at 7psi and its fine, but I know i am limited when i go to up the boost

I recommend upgrading the pump.

Getting a treadstone manifold and Downpipe is your best bet. Since they are made for each other it will be a direct bolt on. Unless you know a welder that can make a custom downpipe, treadstone is the way to go

Intercooler piping is up to you. you can get a universal piping kit for just over $100 on ebay. A friend did that for his kit. worked fine. Piping is thin but treadstone is only slightly thicker. Either will be fine just becareful not to crush the piping with the t-bolt clamp. If you have a CAI you can use that for the upper portion and have the i/c piping meet up with it. I did that and it works great.

If you have anymore questions you can pm me, sammy or shogun

If I really need to go over it with you how your contradicting yourself, your seriously dumber than I thought.....

Uh, no one here is mad man.... Actually Im in a humerous mood due to you showing your lack of knowledge.

To OP - feel free to pm for USEFUL information. GL

Oh and as far as the fuel pump my buddy with his spec-v was able to go to 10psi on stock pump, I aswell can go to 10psi on stock pump. Anything higher it would be good to upgrade. :)

Downpipe:
-go with treadstone manifold and dp $600 for both right now instead of $750
-oil lines should not be ebay, id get stainless steel lines with fittings crimped on the ends, do this for return line and feed
-get the walboro 255 fuel pump its 86 bucks shipped brand new
-440cc injectors will work with 6psi
-stay away from 3" treadstone exhaust, 2.5" is fine 2 tho good to set u up to upgrade ur shit
-any universal intercooler piping kit will work

good luck man, sorry for the thread jack

Yea, but one half of the forum says do this and the other half says do that. Then ya'll start arguing. Doens't sound like a clear answer to me.
lol, that's true bro.. especially because I don't know a turbo timer from a wideband. I was trying to get some good talk going

thanks boss that's good info. is there anyway I can go a cheaper route with the manifold and dp though? or is it important to my kit and car life that I buy something with the quality of treadstone?

God forbid anybody ever ask a turbo question without having one on their car prior. Apparently if it didn't come that way you're not even allowed to discuss boosting your car... Because every single Sentra didn't come stock n/a.
Seriously, you three from "h-town" need to quit fucking up threads of people who are looking for actual advice. Nobody wants this shit here.

@charca, u dont kno shit man, if u wanted to put ur 2 cents in last night would have been fine, cuz u would have got flamed..but its a little 2 late

@watkins....its up 2 u man...u can go cheaper get the autoboost/godspeed manifold, and have a custom dp made...and its not about the quality of treadstone, its jus the fact that there manifold and dp lineup perfectly
