MY TURBO 202 HQ PROJECT...

Postby gtarhead » Sat Aug 07, 2010 8:58 pm

1971 HQ Kingswood 202 and Trimatic

-lowered 2 inches with King Springs (i didnt want to get ridiculous and have to drive diagonally over speed bumps- i want to actually drive it)
-nolathane bushes throughout
-aftermarket sway bar (not sure of brand)
-upgraded front drum brakes to disc brake front end with v8 booster (taken from statesman)
-LSD
-18'' CSA rims
-stock red 202 with extractors and 2 1/4'' exhaust
-exhaust cut out (basically a butterfly valve controlled by a switch I wired up that opens the ehaust up just behind the extractors and it's LOUD!!! :D )
-a full resto respray which saw most of the car stripped back to bare metal, whole front end, doors and all glass and rubbers came off the car and sprayed in 'Crunch' which is a VE Commodore Green and done at Focus Prestige Motor Body Works at North Wyong
-chrome strip along the sill and around the wheel arches removed and holes welded up
-side and boot badges removed (shaved)
-inside of doors, and other panels coated in rust proofer
-lots of money spent at Rare Spares getting new grilles, mirrors and many other odds and ends including a clackson horn hahaha
-i have an draw through turbo setup that i plan to put on soon... it consists of a t3/t4 ebay turbo (cheap to replace if things go bang or it doesnt work out) and a sidedraught Weber carb i need to rebuild, inlet and exhaust manifolds, adapters and gaskets.

Hope you all like it so far... My future plans for it are to work on the trimatic so it can handle the extra power, put a stally in it with a shifter on top. Put the draw through setup on and work the 202 up a bit with all the "go fast bits" so she makes some decent power but for now i'd like to just run low boost on the stock motor. Hope to have the turbo on it within a couple of months.

Just some more pics... I'm hoping to put in the Young Guns section of Street Machine when she's a bit further along the build.

gtarhead - Looks great! Does your T3/t4 have a carbon seal on the compressor side? You'll need one for a draw through setup...

So what guitars do you have? :P

Looks good mate, though i wont comment on the rims.

If your putting together a custom turbo set up why fuck around with draw through??

cheers.

Draw through sucks.

To answer everyone, the turbo doesn't have a carbon seal on it yet... And yeah I know what will happen without it! I can't wait to feel the difference in power, Im not getting my hopes up for something insane but i'm looking forward to a bit of a giddy up. Umm, I didn't say it was a custom draw through, i just want to stick with draw through coz it's simple and easy to work on. I have a pic of it...

I know it's off topic but the guitars - 2010 Gibson Les Paul Traditional (in honeyburst)
- Ibanez S series with Seymour Duncan pickups
- Maton semi-acoustic

What about yourself?

The setup looks nice - but I would recommend a tappet cover :P

The brand spanker Les Paul must be a sweet bit of wood to play?! Honeyburst is the "Iced Tea" shade right - man they sound fat.

I had to cut back a couple years ago when we had kids but I kept;
Music Man - Steve Lukather sig (early 90's series when they had a floating trem) signed by J.Petrucci, Ibanez SR506 6string bass and a 30yr old cheapy classical that sounds so beautifully melow I'd just about give my left nut to make sure I keep it (thankfully no one would ever want to flog it!!!). On the lookout for a nice 7-string but not playing much at the moment so money is better aimed at the project car ;)
I've never owned a Les cause I always liked my trems but they always feel comfy.
