Another RS turbo upgrade

Postby radstar28 » Tue Nov 22, 2011 7:29 am

Hi, I have not posted for a while but now my car is nearly ready I am motivated to chat about the focus again :)
Anyway motor is being put together after some valves said hello to a piston and found my std turbo needed a rebuild so I went the extra for an RS. Anyway here is a list of mods to date.
RS turbo, 650cc injectors, sitec inlet plenum, airtec IC, milltek turbo back, lsd/clutch, half cage (no back seats), pedders coilovers and braided brake lines with performance pads.
I would post pics but I have no idea how.
Anyway waiting for the rebuild to finish then onto the tune, currently I have a DS Ultra but that may need to change.

I also have an s60r turbo sitting here and I wonder if anyone has any ideas on a hybrid K16/K24?

Anyway cheers :)

Another, the cage is just in undercoat untill I can colour match it without spraying the rest of the interior.

The cage pic looks eerily familiar to another I've seen before.
And the intake plenum pic has a bumper from a FL ST poking into the pic, yet you have a pre-fl.

Who is doing this conversion and where in the world are you?

No, as in the fastest ST in the world is from Aus (where I am as well) and that cage pic looked eerily similar to one he posted on here as well.
