This is my car, turbo setup is almost done now, should be running again in a couple weeks.
The steering wheel I got off of an earlier model ... Show moreRX-7 since mine was cracked and falling apart, this one is in almost perfect condition. The boost gauge is mounted where the clock used to be, it fit almost perfect, I just had to grind out the silver surrounding some.
The turbo is from a 1988 RX-7 Turbo II. It's a good size for this car, and will give me 225-275hp, at about 10psi of boost. It's not some insane amount of power, but when it's in a 2200 pound car, it makes it fly.
The carb hat was made at Mid-Ohio Products, they do great machining work.
The carb was modified at www.rotaryshack.com It used to be the stock carb, but it has had many modifications done to it, and it flows enough for at least 500hp. The intake manifold is from a J-Spec 12aTurbo, and has TONS of porting done to it. I know this setup flows enough for 500hp because it was on one of RotaryShack's other cars that was making that much power :) That car had a much bigger turbo than mine though.
Here's a closer pic of the boost gauge. It was VERY easy to mount there. Just grind the plastic a tiny bit, drop the gauge in, hot-glue it on the back to connect it to the console. The wiring for the backlight is already there from the clock, just solder the wires from there to the gauge. Or if you want you can cut the harness off the clock, and connect the harness to the gauge. That way if you ever need to take off the console, you can just un-clip the harness instead of unscrewing the wires from the gauge.
Here's the first turbo setup, no intercooler, lots of stock parts. Show Less
