    I kinda meant with complete hardpiping installed. I'm guessing it's not done yet. I will check back to see how it all turns out. Good luck with the build

    No, I said I was driving to Indy in two weeks. I will install the turbo there while my friends shop creates the exhaust.

    And for reference, here is a dyno pull from my truck while stock. (153hp/219tq) Good baseline to compare with the turbo swap. The other pull on the chart is an overlay of my car I dynoed the same day.


    Stock Cruiser Dyno

    I saw your build first on the other forums. You will get way more info from there and most of the parts used for cheap. I would almost guess that a oem 2j fuel pump would drop in as well as some n/a or TT injectors

    Looking great! So do you have a final parts list/configuration yet?

    I'm curious why your HP is low at 153hp- is that due to the usual 30% driveline loss?

    It was an all wheel drive dyno so that's what wheel horsepower is.

    Manufacturers rate the horsepower at the engine without any loss.
