Turbo advice



  • after going down the drag strip at the weekend i got the bug for racing now has any body got any advice about putting a turbo on a 1.6 auto? i would be grate full, i may have asked this before but i have decided to keep this car and a engine swop is too much to do. can anybody help me please :D :D :D :D :D :D



  • ummm.. not a common question. Think your probably find a quick answer on club323f.com. or maybe a mx5 site?.
    But in all cases im sure its no problem



  • Hello Jay,
    I plan to fit a turbo to my 1.6 DOHC manual, using a mazda 323 turbo manifold running emanage or MS, and an uprated clutch! so i dont honestly know how the autobox will handle your extra torque, if at all ! New to mazda,
    but not turboing ;)

  • is it a streight foward fit or dose it need a bit of moding ?



  • piece of piss jay :)

    uv'e got my email ;)



  • i think welly should turbo my ze as there is just far too many klzes now!!



  • :wink:

    It's easier than people think to make your own turbo kit…



  • I've been thinking about adding a turbo to the V6, I know the basics but would appreciate a "How To". The subject of fitting a turbo has roused more interest than a lot of other topics. I know this is the 4 cylinder area but it's still relevant. :)



  • v6 has 2 exhaust manifolds? correct…so in theory u can twin turbo it... ill be quiet now.

    hope there is 2 exhaust manifolds anyway, its not a inline 6 lol.



  • hi welly i cant find the e-mail about turbo any chance you could send it again please. thanks.

    Straight forward fit so im led to beleive, havent actually offered it up yet though, finding a T25 sized turbo to fit is proving a bit difficult ! must be 323 specific?! a bit like bloody pug turbos.

    :cry:

    Im hoping to do it for 500 quid ish :D cant get cracking on dishcharge flange, downpipe or boost pipes/intercooler till I source a turbo mind.



  • Rover 620 and 200sx are T25 turbo's ;)

    Make sure u dont over do it with boost, and have enough fuel..or ull start pinking and blowing pistons



  • Had a look at those already ;) They have a rectangular flange, were as this
    323 mani I have has a very sqaure flange, guess I may have to get a gasket to find out for sure, or even make up an adaptor block if I cant find one that fits right up. ( I work in metal fab) dont really want to go this route though!

    Dont worry wont being running loads of boost and will run a wideband lambda, and get someone who knows what there doing to map my emanage/ms. :)

    Do these engines run a knock sensor as standard?
