hy guys, im just wanting to put soem feelers out there- ive done soem research and foudn out that a turbo upgrade on a F2T will probably require either a custom retro-fit or a manifold customization?
What are my options for this in australia? does anyone have any experience? id like to upgrade to be able to run something t3/4 like a t28 or something
Also, what are my options ECU wise? apparently the F2T has a 10psi boost cut? i cut see the point of getting aslightly better turbo if its restricted like this?
Is it possible to just adjust the fuel-cut/boost restriction and the A/F ratio?
I dont want to spend mega $$, for obvious reasons, and i also cant do much of the work myself.
At some point id liek to be able to push it into high 13's or low 14's.
Also note; i know this isnt the best car to start with, but i love the charm and i picked up a near-mint example and getting another car just isnt on my mind atm.
Cheers x

Hey Mate, I have recently been doing a fair bit of research on this myself. it seems the easiest way to upgrade the turbo is to buy a full kit like:
This guy also has manifolds that fit the FWD variants.

For a budget build the best option would be to get your ecu chipped for the setup your running, but, i have had trouble finding someone who can do this in Australia. Another option is to use a megasquirt ECU. These are DIY kits and can be programmed on a standard computer. Some electrical knowledge is required. Also with the megasquirt kit you can use a air temp sensor instead of the factory AFM to eliminate the boost cut.

If your running less than 14psi the standard ecu will handle this.

Dont give up on it, hese things are wicked when you do beef them up just a little even, my wagon scares most commodores and imports around.

Peace. Tom.
