Hey Busta, Yes I made the exhaust manifold using sch10 tube(if I remember correct...I still have some left to check on this) A cast manifold can be had on ebay from a swift M series.....although they invert the turbo....and somebody put a chassis in the way on the Jimny.
Busta wrote: Few more questions....
Did you make the exhaust manifold?
What is the turbo from?
Have you thought about a bigger air box, or even an open filter? It has been suggested in the past that the standard air box is small to the point of being restrictive, even for the standard engine.
The turbo is a Garrett GT1544 with 0.38ar as fitted to various sub 1.6l cars.
As regards the airbox....I've seen the reports of the size issues between various Suzuki air boxes for different capacities...it would appear in actuality that the Jimny airbox has enough capacity to allow plenty through....normal atmos+17 psi inlet pressure=enough?
I still have the pea shooter exhaust and cat installed......it's plenty powerful enough for traffic light racing and laning as it is

Good luck with that matey! I usually wait until it's my significant others idea

@Busta, Sch10s 304 stainless lr90 elbows all welded onto the original Jimny exhaust flange...still got the egr in operation too.
Anyone know what the "power" indicator lamp was for in the dash?
It's set to light up under boost now......need a recording of J Clarkson shouting power to finish that part off
I hear ya....I was actually looking around under a Transit yesterday......the intercooler is around the area of mine....bit wider overall and not as tall......could fit?
Busta wrote: Surely it doesn't need an intercooler that big though? By over-sizing it aren't you increasing lag? I don't know the maths but a small one that neatly fits the lower opening in the bumper must be enough.
I'm a fan of safe power....so deliberately erred on the side of safety for this......cheaper and more reliable than injecting water.
Regards lag, on a standard Jimny I found that barring the 1st to second change the gears flow really well all the way to fifth.
Fitting the larger circumference tyres made the gears a little taller and the gears whilst still close didn't quite flow as well!
So with the turbo and from a standing start it's on boost superfast and the gears are boost boost boost all the way through to chav speed.....not had any lag issues as of yet.
So a new clutch arrived from a local maker....got a good deal on it so their sticker is on the rear of the Jimny....
It bites down just fine under boost and it's not too snatchy for use in traffic...not fun there though!!
Changed the bonnet vents to black ones....Orange ones for sale later.
