Cheers mate 

turbos are t3 fitment so made a custom adaptor. I read about them on other forums but mainly in the states and other jdm cars.  

For the cost it was worth a shot.  Little bit laggy but round town cruseing is perfect as if boost.  Then if going for it just drop down a gear.   

Looking in a 2.1 build or if money can stretch then a 2.35 as I build blocks myself.  That would bring the power curve right down and should give a bit more top end as turbo still got bit more to go.

I'm running pretty much the same spec in my 94 sti and I built the engine myself too but I've got a smaller turbo and injectors. It's a fairly unusual turbo choice too aps sr40 which is basically a garret gt28rs with a 8cm hotside.

It's stock location and should be good for 400hp but it was only £200 so I thought it was worth a punt 😎

I haven't got it mapped in yet so I've just turned it down to 1 bar untill I do .

If you know your way round a boxer build feel free to join in or add any advice on any of the threads here .

turbo looks pretty good.  Will it b on 2.0 or 2.1

8cm hot side might b a bit laggier 

7cm would b perfect for 2.0

8cm for 2.1.

It's a Ar 0.83 hotside bolted to a 2ltr cdb with v1sti ported heads ,gruppe headers and up pipe. seems to spool fairly well (1 bar @3.2 k in 4th ) .

it made 375 hp at 1.2 bar on a mates forged 2ltr with uk cams but I'd be happy with high 300's tbh .

As it's a road car and I doubt it will ever see any track time just the occasional blatt down the 1/4 @ the pod .

It was my first attempt at building a turbo boxer lump but it's done 20k now (so I must have done something right lol ) tbh I'd like it to go pop so I could build a 2.1 .I couldn't squeeze the extra £800 for a thrust conversion and 2.5 crank past the Mrs first time around lol .

Have you done many boxer builds and is it a hobby or job ?

Either way nice machine you've built and I bet it shocks a few cars that cost a lot more to buy 😎

Just a hobby.   I rebuilt a few engine knw.

I done my mates after thrust bearings went.

I built my other pals block with same spec parts and he running 440bhp on a gt30

ive also got another block to bull for my other pal who just brought his first Subaru.  

 

Like you you say my next step is also 2.1

but also looking Into a  2.35 build for myself  aswell buy using open deck 2.2 and having filled.  

Or a ej25 filled block and destroke to 2.35 which seams to b a popular thing over the pond knw.
