    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.

    That's what I used when I first started out. It's close to everything but just clears. I later made an adaptor to drop the turbo down about 4 inches and cant it toward the engine. Said adaptor also allowed me to use a N/A Zetec Focus ram horn manifold and an external wastegate.
    I originally used a slim fan in place of the stock fan. Had cooling issues in the summer in traffic. Switched to the biggest high flow push fan I could fit in front the condenser. No problems since. (Currently deployed so I can't get a measurement for you.)
    T3 turbo, FMIC, 2.5" Piping, 70mm Mustang Maf, 1g DSM BOV, 70mm throttle body, Ford Racing Intake manifold, 42lb Green Top Injectors, SVT Fuel Pump, Focus Shorty header, Turbo Adapter Pipe, 38mm Tial Wastegate, 2.5" Full Exhaust w/ high flow cat, Fidanza Flywheel, Spec 3+ Technically turboless at the moment.
