Skankfoot 4.0 turbo kit

Recommended Posts

Anyone else been following the building of these kits?  $1680 intro price, I know it includes manifold, turbo, down pipe, lines gaskets, etc... waiting to hear about fuel management.  Capable of 20psi on stock internals, but looking at about 245whp at 11psi.

Don't think it works for renix yet but it looks nice otherwise

Just sent them a question about the fuel management, they said: With OBDI/II harnesses OBDI will be able to use HP Tuners, so yeah, unless we upgrade, we are out at this point unless we go to Mega-squirt or comparable stand alone.

He says October for the obd1-2 adapter. The idea is that we can pickup an obd 2 computer for a 4.0 and throw it in our 91-92 mjs then tune it with HP tuners. The total cost for the electronics would make me go with mega squirt instead. Not a fan of his welded tube turbo manifold either. The boostwerks one is cast and is on sale now too for less than 400. Also don’t like the internal wastegate on the turbo. I’d grab the boostwerks manifold, a decent eBay turbo that is the right size for your needs, an eBay 90* v band downpipe with o2 bungs and a frozen boost intercooler. The picture below is what I’m planning to base my design on. It’s a very clean install for a turbo:

The stock metal parts may be capable of 20lbs but the stock head gasket sure isnt.  I also wouldn't want to push that much pressure through a 200k+ mile motor.

 

Nice people are doing this but the "kits" are still too far in their infancy for me.  I'd think of them more like "developer kits"
