After you finish this article up, are you going to write up on wiring the EZK?

Great Job. I'm in the middle of gathering the parts to do just this. The list of parts needed is a great help. Now If I can just find the darn intercooler brackets.....

the rubber bits from the 740's can be re-used and you can take some flat stock and weld 2 NA brackets together to get what you need...

pics to come

Thanks, I'm off to the JY and I'll keep that in mind if I don't find exactly what I'm looking for.

Or maybe helping those with a limited budget turbocharge their cars. It doesn't have to be ghetto if you use all of the stock parts that were intended to be used on a turbo car. Its not like omg you need Megasquirt, MSD ignition, gold plated intercooler, and platinum injectors.

My thoughts exactly. Going cheap does not necessarily mean it's going to be unreliable - if you do it right.

Thanks for the article, I need to do the same thing so I'm checking up on this every chance I get.

After reading this article, it makes me want to do this to the 90 244 dl I just bought. I have all the turbo parts (exhust mani, garret t3/t4, intercooler +piping, water lines, and oil lines, +their fittings) i need from my 84 244tic, so this looks like something i can do with my 90. I plan on running on 5-6lbs of boost, the motor does have 2xx,xxx on the clock, but has been well taken care of.

Questions for this project of mine ( just like this one lol )
You say you can use the stock N/A injectors, resistors, ecu, and icu, but how well does the N/A computer compensate for the turbo, will this project make my car run like a stumbling idled fool, or will the N/A do okay untill I get the brains from a 740? Also how much is this going to kill my mpg is another thing? Im just worried about how well the N/A computers will do with the turbo, as im looking to keep this as my DD just a bit under the under DD, thanks guys!

It will just have no balls down low because you will have to pull mad ignition timing. Fueling should be fine. If you run premo, you can probably get away with decent enough timing to give it similar torque to a B21 (with its abysmal compression ratio).

What is Premo? 84 blue- have you done this set up, or is this just bench talk? No offence to anyone, but I'm planing on doing this mod, so I'd like to know how people's cars that have this set up run.

So I won't have low end grunt, but boost the for the top side of the tach is where I'm looking for power.

Depends on how much boost you want to run. I ran a 14.5@95mph with that setup (plus 3 extra cold start injectors) and in order to be that fast I needed to retard the timing to the point where the car almost didn't idle. It basically idled like a boat motor. But once the boost hit, it felt like it was gonna rip your head off.

I added more to the +T article btw.

Thank you Isaac, Did you retard your timing on the cam gear? I was going to advance my timing on my 90 244 the other night and remembered that EKZ doesn't use the dizzy to advance or retard it, but the brains do it for me lol.

I just plan on running 5-6 lbs of boost on mine.

So, my question is this...Does/Has anyone had any issues with the alternator bracket hitting the fitting coming out of the oil galley. For example when you go to change alternator belts.

Is there a alternator bracket from another model that I might need or a modification to the stock bracket if any?

Nope, thats where i am going and i havent had a problem. I am using a brass street 90* though, so i could get it as close to the block as possible.

I also had a 90 degree and the bracket isnt my problem. I had a hard time removing the belt when i needed to. SO I would loosen the tention screw to create slack in the belt but then I couldnt lift the alt high enough to get enough slack cause it would hit the fitting. I got by with it but it was a tad anoying...still seems like a good spot though
