1987 Iroc 5.7 TPI with T-70 single turbo, megasquirt, 6 psi cruising around with AC on
Having a little bit of fun with the turbo 5.7 Iroc. At the time of this video I've finished the 3" downpipe all the way to the cat (no more leaky Exhaust from the first video). I was testing some heat barrier tape today that I put on the AC system components. Seems to work well, nice cold air all day. I'm putting on a 3" cat back next week so it won't be as quiet in the future but it will be as quiet as I can make it (unfortunately a Flowmaster is on the 3" system but that will change to Magnaflow in the near future) and a Walbro pump and then it's off to the land of 12-15 psi!
Just a teaser video from the outside at the end of the video. I didn't want to get in trouble driving crazy so I only took off once and it ended up being too far from the camera. It left black marks and didn't really get anywhere fast but it was fun. I'm working on getting some good outside footage soon. Probably when I get a little more Boost so it's more interesting to see & hear.

Junkyard Turbo Swap! Chevy-Powered 1971 Datsun 240Z Autocross Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 26
What do you get when you cross a rusted 1971 Datsun 240Z with a Chevy 4.3L
V6 and a turbo from a Ford Power Stroke
Diesel? The Rotsun! During Roadkill Episode 25, Freiburger and Finnegan
revived the Rotsun expecting it to dominate in the 9-car autocross showdown
of previous Roadkill project cars. It also needed to beat a 2014 Kia Rio 5,
but failed to do so with the Rotsun shamefully breaking down before
completing a decent lap. So in this episode: revenge. After swapping in the
mismatched turbo and making nearly 400
rear-wheel horsepower, the guys head to
the autocross at the Goodguys 5th Spring Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona
and mingle with fans on their way to a rematch with that dastardly Kia.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

1987 Iroc 5.7 TPI with T-70 single turbo, megasquirt, 6 psi first drive
Build info at http://www.mentalsocket.com/iroc87
First video of the turbo setup running.
Car is completely stock 5.7 TPI with 140k miles on it, except for
Precision turbo 65# injectors,
Megasquirt II 3.0 and an Ebay T-70 turbo
with a $20 Ebay blowoff valve. Exhaust is noisy because I haven't welded the
flanges on the front of the cat. Stock 2.5" Exhaust and muffler still too!
Already finding the limits of the stock fuel pump and ignition, so
upgrades coming soon. Yes I know the manifold is leaking, have to pull
all of it back off this week to find the source. Also have to put some
additional heat shielding in and run the cold air intake tubing. Intercooler coming after the fuel
upgrades so I can turn up the Boost.
Plan to run 12 psi on the stock engine and 18-20 after I upgrade the
Lot's of fun, not really so fast but hella better than stock! At 6 psi,
the engine should be producing around 315 hp and 435 ft lbs tq
Turbo Camaro IROC turboCamaro IROC. 350 TPI. Garrett
GT40 Intercooled. This vid was taken early in the build and it had dodgy
injectors in it.
Updated drivetrain ended up in the ratrod;
1987 Iroc Turbocharged TPI 350 burnouts and donuts
When will it blow? We'll know when I turn the Boost up soon. Still waiting on my fuel pump
to arrive. Just some sights and sounds of the turbo Iroc after getting the 3" Flowmaster catback
on it. The new Exhaust brought the Boost up to 7.2 psi. Before long it
will be 15 psi. For now it is pretty fun even with low Boost because the rear tires are old and hard.
I'm almost done using them and we'll throw some Fusion ZRI's on the back
and then it's off to the dragstrip. Also at the very end of the video you
can hear the $20 Ebay blowoff valve doing its job!
See my other vids for more into on the setup.

1991 Supercharged 383 TPI Camaro Z28
This is my 1991 Z28 Camaro. I am running an Eagle
bottom end (5.7" H-beam rods) with forged JE pistons. The block is a 1976
4-bolt main block with ARP bolts. That is good for 383 cubic inches. The
compression ratio is around 8.2:1. It has a custom ground Lunati flat
tappet camshaft, Crane full-roller aluminum rocker arms, and Comp Cam
lifters and springs. The heads have mild port work done. The TPI induction
is stock except for a TPIS air foil. It has Hooker long tube headers
(#2210) and 4" single Mufflex Exhaust
to a Spintech muffler with 3" duals out and a Flowmaster merge y-pipe. The
blower is a Vortech S-trim with a 2.87" pulley, good for about 12-14 psi at
5500 rpm depending on conditions. The car has not been fully tuned yet with
the stock computer. It is running 30 lbs injectors with a 4:1 Vortech fuel
pressure regulator (yes, I know). It has a shift-kitted 700-R4 with a
3000rpm stall TCI torque convertor. The rearend is a 10-bolt that I have
rebuilt once with Richmond Street 3.73 gears and an Eaton carbon fiber
clutch posi. It has run a best G-Tech time of 13.6 at 110 mph spinning the
tires through first and halfway through second at 5200ft elevation. The car
is estimated around 450 fwhp and over 550 ft/lbs of torque. I am in the
process of pulling the car apart to repair the body, replace the broken
windshield, and replace the transmission. The car was sitting for about a
year after I blew 3rd gear. This is the 4th time starting since. There is a
pulley that is making noise that can be heard over the blower. I am
planning on making a few more videos before the teardown. The revs were to
about 4000rpm and the belt was not adjusted very tightly. Sorry about the
bad sound quality.

Turbo TPI Iroc - driving around fun and blowoff valve sounds
See my other vids for more info on this car. Had to go pick up yet another
rental car so had a friend with me to drive the Iroc back home. Yes my
truck is down again, BIG TIME this time. Diesel contamination. Anyway I
asked him to make some blowoff sounds for me while I shot video and this is
what we came up with. Had to keep the speed down but with this car you can
have a lot of fun with short Boost
runs. Car is still running great after almost 15 months on Boost!
