Turbo Jimny was created by Keithy
Some may recall me scrounging/acquiring a Silver Jimny from Steve in Tenby with a view to modifying it a little....Turbo, Lift, Big tyres, body kit....maybe some other stuff :D

So I've made a start this weekend.....manifold on turbo on just needs lots of pipes and stuff to arrive this week.

Go bang...hush your mouth! :D

The cars not too bad....later I'll look at the rear floor and see how I feel....It's been "welded" previously, might just fit a new one so it can be more spacious inside....and a level load space is always nice.

How much boost are you looking at? Will you be getting the fensport turbo head gasket and their other goodies for a few extra horses and more reliability?

Oh damn the £310 head gasket is out of stock.... I could just about buy a Megasquirt and control the fuelling for that :D

This is a low budget low boost project....not chasing power that's for the younger generation.....just a little extra for the big motorway hills.

Would just be concerned it may run lean under boost

It needs to have a large user base for it to be do-able for me....I'm determined not to get too deeply involved with new projects.

Do you need to upgrade the fuel pump and injectors ?
