You could use those to make a real torque monster scooter, would run out of puff in the top end but boy, she'd come on HARD

I remember looking through all the features built into the Diablo and was stoked to see they came calibrated for positive manifold pressure, BOOST BABY

Re: Is this turbo set-up junk??

Well, I won't say that it is junk, as I have not seen the parts up close. I will say that what you would get is a couple boxes of generic components, nothing is specific for a Jeep.

The turbo looks to be a T3/T4 Hybrid, likely a T60-1 which E-Bay always lists as a T70 for some reason. It might be smaller. Certainly not optimal for a V8.

Really no need for the cooling fans, will not work if you have a 5.7 with the hydraulic fan unit.

The wastegate is far to small, can't see the BOV to tell what it is.

The intercooler is only good for a realistic 300 HP set up.

Rubber, not silicone couplers.

No need for a battery mount, miles of hose wrap, inexpensive silicone hose for vacuum lines, fuel regulator, manual boost controller is junk, no need for a turbo timer, universal aluminum tubing that you can't cut or weld easily.

This is from a quick look at the ebay ad.

I build turbo systems for the 5.7 Cherokee/Commander (first to do so), I would definitely pass unless you are simply looking for an $1100 grab bag of parts.

Re: Is this turbo set-up junk??

Im surprised scott doesn have a 6.1 in his garage he's waiting to put in.

And kinda on topic I guess, I was on youtube looking at srt8 at the tracks, and that Hennessy twin turbo is sick to watch. Looks like a rocket going down the track.

Are you kidding about the turbo or the 0-60 time?
