$500 Craigs List Car 94 Mazda Protege
Meet my 94 Mazda Protege (with a 93 hood and headlight) I picked up for 500
bucks on Craigs List. I call her "Old Peppy". Has nearly 200K miles but
still runs nicely!
5.5hp Turbocharged Fuel Injected Engine - Bench Test
Quick test run of my 5.5hp fuel injected, turbocharged engine. This engine is controlled by
my homebrew ECU, it's PC tunable, (spark advance, and fuel delivery

TPS, Block and IAT Temp, TDC and CAM sensors, electronic spark coil,
in-tank fuel pump, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, PC tunable.
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!
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
