2G GST Turbo Swap Part 1
Installing a 14B turbo onto an Eclipse GS-T that had the stock T-25 turbo. Started smoothly routing the coolant lines became an issue. We also ported the Exhaust manifold and turbo once it was all off. We ended up running out of daylight so we were forced to cut the video short. We will follow up with a video of the finished product as well as some gauge installs.





2g GSX How-To: Attempting turbo swap with WTF ending
Okay. Now I've seen it all. There's an old adage that states "if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself". Well, this video both confirms and debunks that theory. A lot of that depends on each person's definition of "done right". You can't do things by-the-book with aftermarket hardware. Sheldon bought this car with a pretty full mod list and it ran great at the time, but by the time we got it to the track, we couldn't beat a 16-second pass. Despite the laundry list of troubleshooting we both attempted to do through tuning and testing, we couldn't determine why it was around 4 seconds slower than it should be running. I started having doubts that a "ported T-28" was what was on the car, and there's no easy way to tell them apart without removing it so we opted to install a 14b... since plenty of people easily run 13's with them. Stick around for the plot twist.
