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.

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

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.
