Is E85 not available where you are? If you want it to live as long as possible under boost I would run E85 as it is around 105 octane which will give you a good safety margin.I have a few questions about after i get the turbo installed and running, he said he had it on his truck with stock 2.2l pushing 12 psi with methanol, i wont be buying the methanol but i have heard that the stock internals can hold 10psi with a good tune and 93 octane.
1: would daily driving it a 7psi (the lowest it can go) harm the motor? I know that it won't last as long but if it could last me a couple years then i could build it before it blows. I will be using upgraded injectors, fuel pump, and a 93 octane tune with it.
2: I know that our computers have trouble dealing with boost even though they can run it, what kind of issues could that cause while daily driving it?
3: i could afford the boost camshaft from chevycavalierworld a lot faster than i could afford the stroker kit, would the camshaft improve horsepower and longevity or just horsepower?
4: since the nv1500 would not be able to support my power levels for very long would it be best to swap in a t5 or an nv3500?
Thanks for dealing with all my posts yall, i know this thread is getting pretty long im just excited to start a build thread already.
well, in that case the cost of the tune alone would be another 600$ As long as this motor lasts me a year or two i can build it up, at 7 psi and considering the motor only has 15k on it i believe that it would, if the cam would help it last longer then i can put that in there along the way. It would be something worth looking into in the future but since the ecu he is sending me is pretuned with 93 octane the E-85 tune would just cost too much. He said that he ran the turbo kit on his for 20k miles without any major issues.You'll need basically the whole fuel system from a flex truck (tank to the fuel rail and injectors), plus either reprogram your PCM for it or use the one from the flex truck, or else you won't be able to get the fuel composition sensor to work. It would be easier just to buy a flex truck in the first place.
i still could not find the 4th vacuum line hook-up on the 56mm
I starting this assuming that you already have your intake off. First remove the 4 Vacuum hoses and unclip the IACV and the TPS. Hoses 1 and 2 will reconnect in same positions on new TB. Hoses 3 and 4 will be connected using a vacuum elbow and T Adapter.
