M50/52 + S50/52: It's crazy how such a small part can make a car...
It's crazy how such a small part can make a car run like absolute crap. I'm about to replace the same part on my Ram 2500 Cummins this afternoon. Fortunately, seems like the CPS is a pretty easy job...

I am still in disbelief of how much power these motors make with a supercharger, but I suppose it's really not that far-fetched considering they are factory-built motorsport platforms.

Gospel! Fitting the parts won't be much of a headache, but you want to be sure to get a solid tune and enough fuel for sure! Not sure who you guys have locally in PI, but here are two great tuners in...
Also curious to see how she's moving these days. What's the power band like with the extra boost?

Looks like you have all the right ingredients for the recipe. As for the 4088R, an asymmetrical NACA duct might look pretty cool.

Sounds like a pretty cool project, share some pics when you get a chance.
As for re-mapping the factory DME/ECU, it is certainly possible and regularly done here in the States. OBD I units...

Seems like whatever you did worked, everybody here so far is supportive and encouraging of each other's projects. A man is only as good as the company he keeps!
M50/52 + S50/52: Cheers! :eusa-clap:

Garrett is pretty cool about answering customer questions and sharing information. Give them a shout and I'm sure they will provide the dimensions for you if you ask nicely.

To be perfectly honest it was some contentious douchebag whose name I cannot recall. I am a very happy, extroverted guy, and I don't dig e-drama or keyboard warriors.
But, it seems everyone on the...

Very nice, but this guy has it down to a proven science: a lot of bang for the buck!

It's not as big as you might think, slightly larger than a big 35R. The response with the billet wheel is pretty impressive.
M50/52 + S50/52: Sound advice, thanks for the tip!...
Sound advice, thanks for the tip!

So then, to answer your question more specifically Mr. Sticky, they would stack up something like this (we'll use the highest-flowing 35R for the sake of objectivity):

Great to know! The best part is, his car already has an S50 intake manifold, Cometic MLS head-gasket and ARP studs. ID 1,000cc included with sale. Ready for boost!
I still cannot...

That is an incredibly flat and linear graph, very impressive. Must be predictable and easy to drive fast!
My return to this forum is convincing me more and more to buy my buddy's S52 E36....

I would expect no less of your engineering and design prowess. Very cool! That does seem like very optimistic spool for what is a relatively large frame turbo, but you have done your homework.

This. With Fleabay kits, the saying is most definitely true: you get what you pay for. But, that doesn't mean you can't modify and replace what you get to put together a reliable, inexpensive set-up....

Absolutely bonkers, and one of my favorite 'street' cars to this day. No frills, no fancy graphics or aero. Strictly business!
Very impressive 60' for the weight.

Very impressive build so far. Have you considered running the 11-blade GTX4088R? It was hugely popular with many of the 2JZ guys in Formula Drift last season. Quick spool, high flow and excellent...

He's got another rusty, ratrod-style hood with cut-outs for the exhaust and wastegate dump. Beyond the Thunderdome!
