wow 14:1 comp ,that takes balls. i wouldnt go higher than 12.5:1 for a DD, but thats just me

the bottleneck for us is still tuning (timing especially for this application), hopefully Sniper can come through.

nice to see another turboed 6 congratulations Dood keep us updated

Yeah, he couldn't run it half way decently on anything less than 108 octane I think he said? lol

12.5 is used by Tripoint and Tindol in the Touring 6's. From what I can remember (I just cleared out my inbox like 3 days ago, woops) he backed it down to 11.1 Wiseco pistons but he has some other work done as well so it's effectively 11.6:1 compression.

Oh, and no tuning. He said it would be extremely expensive, lol.

not more expensive than a blown engine but hey its not my car.
but its nice to hear of some seriously modded 6's

anywho, 11.6:1 is about as high as i'd go as well.

build isnt finished quite yet. gauges will be wired today and all the coolant/oil lines were finished up last night as well as the injectors. im currently waiting for the cosworth bsd kit to come in on monday so i should be able to fire it up on monday night to check for any leaks. after that i need to bring the car to a shop for the intercooler piping which would be sometime next week and then the tuning will be done after that. as far as the speed6 parts go, they did bolt up nicely. the ms6 manifold flange has 10 holes on it compared to the 7 holes that can be found on the 6i but itll still bolt up. everything else has been pretty good so far.

edit: ill post some more pics of the progress later on today so stay tuned!

Looks pretty good, I definitely hope everything works out smoothly for ya. You're doing well price wise... my Hass kit was 3500 for parts and it's taken a shiteload more to get operational (and it's still not *quite* there).

Can't wait to see more progress. It'll be nice to have a well-documented custom build out there for everyone!

And yeah, this engine will do fine on moderate boost, it's the tranny I'd worry about past 10psi.

yeah i will get pics up tomorrow. i just finished up some wiring issues with the gauges but theyre functioning now. as far as the build goes, i think its worth it but i did get great deals on some of the parts. a key factor in this whole build is patience and waiting for the best prices on certain items. ive been buying parts since may so its been awhile already. if youre really looking into turboing your 6 using a setup similar to mine, shoot me a PM and ill try my best to help u track down parts. as far as injectors go, im running the bosch 42lb green top injectors with ev1-ev6 adapters. the injectors i got are ev1 style and the harness coming from the car is an ev6 which is why u would need the adapters.

Yeah im wantin to go the same route due to this way when its all said and done i can be like yeah i peiced it together...but i spoke with one member who is selling his stock manifold from his speed6 for 90 but me and him have talked at a lower price if it works out. and i saw a stock turbo for 300 and if he really wants it gone ill give him a price. so will see but im sure it will be over some time. and ive been searching craigslist for a intercooler and found one off an evo so will see..but please post pics want to see how this comes out. last question for now anyways how did the downpipe fit up with your exhaust because im running the magnaflow now.
