Re: Hybrid ct20b with 71mm induced, what are people thoughts?

Post by chaos19810 »

I’m thinking of getting my ct20b refurbished with the addition of a 71mm inducer. I have the st205 version so it has a steel shaft already.

So it’s been decided the ct20b is going to be rebuilt and hybridised, at this stage there is no need to make the AW11 Mk1.5 any more powerful than it already is until I move to a 2.2-2.3 stroker kit so with this in mind there is no need to get a bigger turbo yet.

The turbo is being sent of to midland turbo to get stripped down rebuilt with the addition of a billet 71mm compressor. This hopefully should allow me to make 300-315 with out having to run 19psi.

For no other reason than I can here are the before pictures.

Re: Anyone uses a 5.0 mustang throttle body p7

Post by chaos19810 »

I am looking at increasing the size of my throttle body and using the 75mm 1986-1993 5.0 Mustang on my rev3 tubby intake manifold. I was wondering if anyone had done this as I have a few questions about fitting.

I plan to use the racer X conversion kit to mount and use the OEM TPS, cable and IVCS, but it’s attaching the TB to the manifold, I could just weld it as a last resort but I was wondering if anyone had just drilled and tapped one into the manifold?

Well 4.5 years later and this project is still not complete, I never imagined it would take this long. I think my first plan was to get it done in 16 weekends, I think I was a little optimistic and adulting got in the way.

However the project still lives on and I have given myself until the 5th November 2021 to have it completed or it will need to be broken and sold.

So a little summary of what has been happening since my last update:
- the rear Harper’s hatch has been sanded and mounted

- I removed the Hurley engineering cam timing set up and moved over to a racer x cam and crank kit

- removed the Ford coil pack and replaced it with individual 1zz coils

- completed my wiring and decided on the standard ECU and could not stop it over fueling so stripped it all out and started all over again with a Emerald K6 ecu

- stripped out all my emerald K6 wiring and decided I did not want the main harness/rear lights wiring running through the car so stripped it out and am finishing

- removed all of my gauges and decided on using a race technology race dash 2 and ditching the OEM gauges.

The next few tasks are:

- Remove st205 chargecooler set up and build a custom one which with includes a rad at the front of the car and one in the Harper’s hatch scoop
- finish rewiring again
- put an interior in the car
- sand, sand and some more sanding ready for paint
- drive to a meet


I can’t wait to get out and start joining in the mr2 meets again if they still even happen I’ve noticed the forum doesn’t get as busy as it used too.

Keep it up, you’ll get there!

Still plenty of meets but most seem to be organised through Facebook these days.

Don’t think there is an official Mr2OC page that I’m aware off though
