A turbo ' kit '.. to include the fabrication of an exhaust system, blowoff/bypass plumbing and innercooling.. Yeah, it sure would cost less then a roots blower..

Tell your friend Im into selling properties, mostly bridges.. I have MANY deals..

we need something a bit more concrete than " my friend said he could". Does this guy have a website of his work or anything???

I don't care if this guy gets turbos for free there is no way a full custom build would cost less than a SC

Hello guys.. I'm not into buying bridges.. But, we do build some cool production, and, one-off stuff for the aftermarket crowd. Forced Induction Racing (www.fi-r.net) has been in business for roughly 6 years. We specialize in custom turbo kit fabrication
(mainly), engine blueprinting/assembly, custom engine internal parts, custom camshafts/valvetrain, and unique engine swaps. Nissan is our forte', but, we have worked on many makes/models.

I spoke with Tony a few days ago, about his interest in possibly having us design a turbo system for his Ranger. I would be happy to look into building a kit for testing, and possibly, production, at a later date. The reason that I'd prefer to go with a turbo setup, is for efficiency, and to maximize the TQ curve (which is what a truck needs the most). Contrary to popular belief, a PROPERLY designed/sized turbo setup will produce more area under the curve, with lower charge air temps, and less chance of detonation.

For R&D, I usually offer a kit, at cost, with no labor cost for install/tuning. In the end, you usually come out saving 25-30% off of what someone else would pay for a kit/install. With that out of the way.. I'd like to show you guys some of our work..

Here's a setup that we're fine tuning at the moment..



Turbocharged 4.2 liter Chevy Trailblazer. This is the first/only turbocharged Trailblazer (except for the OEM project that Chevy was working on). This car features a custom turbo system, with ball bearing Garrett turbo (35R comp wheel, and P-trim turbine), stainless turbo manifold, aluminum piping, bar/plate cooler, and EFI Live tuning software with larger injectors/MAP sensor. This truck hasn't been on the dyno yet.. but, on a street tune, she runs low 13's on street tires! Not bad for a 16 second SUV..

Here's a pic of a destroked 2.5 liter Nissan engine, out of a SE-R Spec V. We modified a SR20DET crankshaft, and had a set of rods/pistons made for the shorter stroke (from 101mm to 86mm). With the new stroke, we have a rod/stroke ratio of 1.77:1, which allows us to safely rev out to around 9500rpm, without piston speed getting too crazy. This car made 500whp @ 19psi of boost, on pump gas, on a VERY mild tune (20* total advance, and 11:1 A/F) This was letting out early too, as we were out of injector..




Here's a dyno vid of a 500whp pull..
http://www.fi-r.net/images2/500whpSQRDyno.wmv

Here's a few random pics of cars that we've built..




480whp @ 18psi, on 93 octane



VQ35 (maxima engine) swapped into a Sentra.

12.95 @ 104mph (stock engine, with a small set of slicks)

http://www.fi-r.net/images2/VQSwapFiles/VQSentraFun.wmv
Having a little fun..


SR20DET swapped into a Spec V





Anyway.. if you guys have any questions.. let me know. I won't be able to take on the task for a few months. I'm booked solid for the next 2 months or so.

Travis

I'd be down for something.

Just all depends on the price/quality.

3.0L Turbo for less that $2000 would be incredible...I'm pretty sure if he could get parts for less and sell them at $2000 the market might be better than the Whipple was because of cost. I wanted a Whipple but the price was outrageous. Now if this "turbo" kit could be built and testing fully and be priced around $2000-$2500 I think it would sell. The 3.0L has potential but it just needs some help.

yeah there is. heck my 5.0 another popular engine has a basic 6psi supercharger all inclusive for 1400shipped on some sites. making an extra 70-100HP depending on tuning and injectors. thats the same as the ranger and they wanted $3k for a ranger SC. thats bunk.

I don't want to put a set price out there, as I haven't even had the chance to look into the layout/design, or tuning logistics. However, going off of most other systems that we've designed, I'd say that you're looking at a tuner kit (no fuel/timing control), coming in at around 2800-3K, and a fully loaded system, with fuel/timing control, for around 3800-4K. I don't use sub-standard parts.. so, don't expect "ebay pricing" on this. My stuff is top notch, and I use only the best parts.

To get started, I'll be looking at information/specs on the 3.0 and 4.0, as well as the trans/rearend, ECM, etc.. If you guys have anything to add to that, feel free to post it up.

Thanks,

Travis
