Jono's KLZE Project - Turbo Build Begins


  • admin

    Yeah I no,

    Im getting a x-member from a broken mx-3 which I will mod for the down pipe, this way I can still use the car while I build up the kit and also if i screw it up, I wont be without a car.

    My install is gonna be generally custom made by myself, also where I work (in a school) the D & T tech used to work for Ford, and he can build pretty much anything, so any brackets etc he said he will make for me :D

    Plus my dad is a pretty good welder!

    Let me know how that turbo build goes with the MS II, im planning on going MegaSquirt with the V3 board! Still have a lot of research to do tho!

    Im only looking for 4-5 PSI for now, but will look into a ZE rebuild after, lol as no doubt I will be up for more power.

    I have been thinking alot about the next few mods for the MX-3, and have decided at some point to do what I never thought I would…

    Im going nitro!!!!!

    Yep, the plan has upgraded to a ZE-T NOS install, however I only plan to do the NOS install after I have rebuilt the motor, which will be some time after the turbo install, hopefully next year :D

    Also I have noticed the sudden trend of car stripping here lol but unfortunately im not gona go this route, im gona keep the car as standard as possible & plan to make it more comfortable for everyday driving.. but with a twist... hehe

    Im gona install a semi hidden rear srut bar, and a few other things that I havent thought of yet! lol

    Anyway thats the latest thinking, however is still a plan :)

    Hopefully good news,

    I have just taken delivery of a replacement Release Bearing, so I should be able to get the clutch swapped over within the next 2 - 3 weeks :P

    Small Update:

    Havnt had the time to take the car off road to swap the clutch yet, but that will happen soon.

    I completed my boot install yesterday (will post pics soon) & am quite pleased with myself lol

    I have started installing blue silicone vacuum lines.

    Also have a brand new set of Devil Alloys on :D (again, pics soon)

  • nice work i might coyp your boot install :D



  • you have any photos of what you did with the boot etc how you fixed the sides etc.



  • that install looks smart i want to do a similar thing, but with out the 6x9s and the power cap. looks good and keeps boot space.

    Umm is your car overheating really bad? or is the needle just messed up?! lol


  • admin

    Lol your the first one to notice that! lol

    When fitting the dials I had to remove the screws from the temp & fuel gauge, when I put them back in (upside down) the clamp fell out so the gauge was not getting a signal and just went right to the top lol

    Fixed now tho
