The turbo was second hand from a turbo mustang project.
I'm not sure of the origin. From searching it looks like it could have came from an 89-94 cummins possibly, except mine has an h1e wheel in the h1c housing. more flow.

and for the engine bay paint. i dont want to tackle that project.  tongue.gif

Wow, great job man.  Everything looks good.  Yeah dont paint the bay...I think it adds to the "sleeper mode".  At some point I am going to be dumping my built 4G63 head/block into my 88 quest.  I plan on hitting 10's with it in the awd gsx first however.  Well done...!

How is the tranny holding up to the high RPM's?

The orange 4g63 starion at the shootout said he has been through 3 TH350's already, the high RPM's ruin the pump, and that ruins the rest of the tranny.

just a heads up.

Powerglide + nitrous FTW!

I used a 1g power steering bracket, and made up a mount that bolts to the old lower alternator mount.

For the high rpm th350 issue, i addressed that with the guy that built my trans, and he said w/ the b&m manual valve body, and the "high output mod" he called it, to the pump, I should be fine up to about 8k.
also, I have a spare powerglide just incase I need it  wink.gif
but I'm too poor for nitrous.


and I haven't actually got this out on the street yet, cause I am getting the winter beater up and going for the up-coming season, so that takes precedence over my toys.  laugh.gif

yes, evo 8, i had to make some brackets for it using the stock lower mounts on the IC. Its (2) 1"x1/4"x~2.5" bars that goto a 10mm threaded hole in the core support. Since it was pushing agains the bar that hols up the hood latch panel deal, i just slit down the side of a vacuum line and ran it across the top so it wont rattle.
I also had to mod the bumper so that there will be airflow across the whole thing.

just to update, per a couple pms and some other mentions throughout the board.
its sitting next to the garage still waiting for me to yank the motor/trans to change the starter.
I'm re-building a g54b for the 85.5 flatty in the mean time. It's basically a stock rebuild minus balance shafts and jet valves.
It will still be tbi w/ megasquirt and 1000cc injectors. running a k26 turbo, knockoff 38mm wastegate, knockoff geedy bov, and an evo8 ic. (i'm not taking any parts off the 87 to get the 85.5 running. in hopes of having 2 running quests this summer  :oops:  )

A few people have asked "what are you doing with the 4g63 quest?"

well. I'm making a new adapter plate for it.
The one I bought was "used". It wasn't from buschur come to find out.
Buschurs flexplate is based of of a fwd dsm flywheel. So I had to relocate the starter, which was done with a drill, die grinder, and sawzall. (I know, not the right tools for the job)
Then I had thought my starter had gone out. Well the only way to change it on this setup is to pull the motor, trans or both.
So I pulled them out. And come to find out, the starter just knocked back so the teeth wouldnt contact.
So I said screw it and got some dimensions off the narrow block and the th350 and played around in autocad. Depending on what my machine shop quotes me, I might just have my own made instead of dealing w/ buschur. As long as its lower. I doubt buschurs will be cheaper  wink.gif

Heres how it sits:




and heres my cad file if anyone wants to get crazy. (its not done)
