1995 HX40, need specs!
Ive got a 1995 f250 with the basic mods, DP, BHAF, 10k blah blah
Plan on making some parts so I can mount an HX40 or 50 to it. Im tired of reading into aftermarket modifications and after XXXhp you need X turbo. Well X turbo is going to run you $1000. Yeah right, might as well get a cummins and put $1000 into it and have big sticks and a turbo.
Correct me if Im wrong but the Garret is a T4 flange right? T3?
Im going to make an extension flange to bring the exhaust out of the valley a bit so the Holset will clear everything. I am thinking over the passenger side valve cover to try and keep everything short seeing as there will be no IC. Then just run a hood stack.
What I dont know is...
1. Under the stock turbo I know that the oiler needs to be plugged with a plate. Can anyone give dimensions of the hole sizes etc? Can I tap into the OE oiler and run it to the Holset?
2. Which leads to my next question. If the stock oiler is plugged, can I drill and tap somewhere around my oil filter and mount a feed line, like most cummins motors have.
3. Im sure I am forgetting some things.
Budget is small. Im going to buy the turbo, a DIY stage one kit and steel pieces. I am in machining classes until spring and my fabrication skills are good.
Maybe a detailed schematic or something, I would like some dimensions because I dont want to tear the truck down to measure something. The truck is in good running order right now.
I would like around 340hp.
