Undrgrnd- u got a pm
Im the king of budget, I'm in school and have a race boat addiction to fulfill. This turbo was my choice for dollar per hp. It is the dreaded hx52, what i found doing research is everyone that talked on it never ran one.
I was expecting it to be a project but it was a lot more work to make it fit than i expected. I still have a temporary manifold right now (stocker with a flange welded to it) until I can afford a 3 piece t4 to up flow. The down pipe is done and looks awesome thanks to my brother welding it up real quick. The charge pipe is done and used the stock elbow from the hx35 thanks to a pointer from a guy who ran and loved his hx52 and made 600+ on it (jake the snake I think). I will get some pics of my setup with my sparkling wiggles manifold and new 4in down pipe (leaking) etc.. It is doable with most of ur typical tools but as any new design needs tweaking after the first couple beatings.
I also just remembered that my AFC housing is slid 3/4 of the way back cause i couldnt tow with the hx35 and that much pre-boost fueling (even with the screw off the diaphragm). So i have a few MM of rack travel that i havent even tapped into yet, not including the mack plug thats not in yet.
Timing up from stock another 7*, afc moved full forward, rack plug installed, 10 hrs attempting to tune it and a 10psi 4x4 launch ought to earn me a duramax=tampons sticker
my brother, Beef layin some weld on the down pipe i couldnt get out of the truck so he was in some interesting positions but got it done
