Geo Metro Turbo vs Honda Civic
1993 Geo Metro turbo. My first race at
the track and toying with the civic. Turbine tech performance manifold,
RHB5 turbo, 2.5in Exhaust straight piped, 255cc injectors, ported
and polished head, cold air intake, holley adjustable fuel regulator,
electronic Boost controller set at
10 psi, and many more mods.
Turbo Geo Metro Build
This is my 1992 Geo Metro 1.0L 3 cylinder 3 speed automatic. This car had a
measly 55hp and the same in torque and could barely get out of its own way.
So I decided to turbo the car. I pulled
the turbo from a Volvo 940 and the Intercooler from a Saab. I
bought a small arc welder and made the manifold, pardon the ugly welds but
Saab Blackstone IntercoolerBoost referenced fuel enrichment
through the CTS
2 inch Exhaust with one resonator and
a glasspack at the tip
I am in the process of changing the turbo to a Garrett T-25 with a different Intercooler, so I will post up as the
1992 Geo Tracker walk around - 5 speed 4x4 Rag Top
I'm soon to be 28 years young. Ever since I was 16 (12 years ago) I have
experienced many cars I've always wanted. To be exact I have owned 14 cars
before this tracker which now makes it 15 vehicles I ever owned as yet.
Nothing ever goes bad or have I been in accidents with the previous cars
(thank god fortunately) I just get bored or interested in something
different. So with that said, all my previous cars including this tracker
will be sold off just like the others to get my money back or to pay off
The day I sell this Geo will be because I found another type of car I want
next. Unfortunately I make very little money and can't afford to keep these
awesome cars I been through nor do I have the space anyway.
This tracker has already been fun, cheap, reliable and useful in all
weather conditions. Gets 18 mpg city 22 mpg highway on the 10 gallon tank.
The Rag Top scene in this video, was my first time taking it off and it
took me about 20 minutes to figure it out how to get it all off (I think I
could do it next time in 5 minutes) it looks awesome with the Top off,
sorta like a mini 4x4 truck. Pretty much think of these trackers as Jeep
wrangler type. I take several months deciding and waiting on my next car
and I happened to of found a perfectly good condition tracker and you can't
find them like this anymore.
I will later regret selling this car...like the majority of my other
vehicles I've owned, but the heart wants what the heart wants!

Geo Metro 600cc Bike Engine
!NOT MY VIDEO!
Reuploaded from streetfire.
has a bit of info on this thing. As far as I know however he sold it.
Build log and video of our summer project. We put a 2005 Suzuki GSXR 1000
engine in a 1994 Geo Metro.
Driving my Turbo 3 cyl. Geo Metro Swift
Some driving clips of my 91' Geo Metro with the guts from a MK2 Pontiac
Firefly turbo. As far as a driving
experience, it is leaps and bounds better than a stock n/a Geo Metro. I
haven't driven a 4 cyl. Suzuki Swift Gt, but I assume those are even
quicker and fun to drive. This car is a compromise between economy and
performance. I can surprise alot of people with the performance of this
car, but I can also get 45mpg. Not Bad IMO.
Turbo Geo Metro First Start
Well, after one long week of fabrication, we finally were able to start the
car. This setup is somewhat different to the original setup. I went with a
front mount Intercooler that
mounts in the bumper fairing. The piping runs through the fender well to
avoid running right over the hot turbo
and manifold. The T25 turbo does not
have a compressor bypass valve like the TD04-13c did(I blocked this off and
used a blow off valve), so it is much smaller and allowed me to put the air
filter right on the front of the turbo.
So here is the breakdown:
Garrett T-25 turbo, .48 compressor and
.49 turbine housings, wastegate set to 5psi stock.
Manual Boost controller to raise the
Boost to 6.5psi
Standalone fuel enrichment circuit that activates at 4.5psi
27x5x2 inch front mount Intercooler, this is just at basic
universal ebay Intercooler
2 inch Intercooler piping
with blow off valve
160 degree thermostat, gotta keep that extra heat under wraps
Transmission oil cooler
2 1/4 inch Exhaust system, 20 inch
resonator midline with a 6x10 glasspack at the tip, no fart cans!!
Hope to have more videos up as the project progresses!
