    Default Turbo with PS and A/C

    So most of the turbo builds I have seen have all had the a/c and PS removed. I want to keep mine and am in the process of research for a turbo build. I live in FL and pretty much have to have the A/C, too dang hot. If anyone has any info, links, or pics of a turbo set up with the accessories I'd appreciate the info. Thanks.

    I know that, my question wasnt whether they had to come off or not, my question was to see info/pics of how guys are setting up their turbo systems while retaining accessories.

    Small turbo, compact manifold, and good exhaust routing is all that you would need. I'd recommend a turbine housing cover, so you don't melt the radiator fan.
    Found the limits of factory internals. Pictures here.

    2000 ZX2 - Built engine (Eagle Rods, JE Pistons, block bored to 85.5mm, 2mm oversize valves, Forged oil pump gears), Garrett GTX2863R turbo, 80 lb/hr injectors, flex fuel, Megasquirt 3 EMS, Celica ST185 radiator, 3" exhaust. Other mods too, check out my build thread for a full listing.

    I was actually considering relocating the battery to the truck and doing a remote mount in the area of where the battery was. Probably alot of room there to do it and keep the turbo away from the radiator and fan.

    I plan to add a pusher fan soon as well.

    You would have to have a flex joint in order to not crack the manifold with all that thermal expansion.

    VJ11 + focus mani will clear a/c, p/s, and radiator. You will need to get a slim fan, unfortunately.

    Any particular focus mani? If I do a twin set of pushers I can take the fan completely out of the way.
