    VIDEO of Fabricating Our GP SHO TURBO Kit

    For those interested, here is an abbreviated version of what was entailed in the fabricating of our turbo kit on my GPSHO conversion. Looking back through the pictures I had taken during the build, definitely gives me even more of an appreciation of the time Jesse put into designing and fabricating it as a whole. Being able to watch and work with him is a treat in itself for me. I feel fortunate to have him as a good friend and share the interests in the majority of my projects enough to want to get involved in the designing and building of them. There was a lot more involved than what's in the video, but I figured I would share an abbreviated version relative to the pictures I had taken.

    Thank you Thomas. I appreciate the compliments. I FINALLY got a GoPro today to use, and just tested it from different angles on the ski in my garage. I didn't realize how user friendly they were. I've had a few friends tell me to get some onboard footage, so it's time. My boy Josh (BAYOUFZR) has been bustin my balls and tells me to send him a video every time we test, if nothing else...he'll be happy. Needless to say, I'm excited about putting it to use. I know a lot of you guys don't visit the conversion section, so here is a log from the last time out. As I stated in my build thread, we're just easing into a tune up and happy with a gradual progression. Thanks again. Keith Salles

    Forgive the ignorance of this question, but shouldn't you have a water jacket around the turbo itself? I remember a previous thread where somebody did that and I thought that since the turbo gets pretty hot it might be a good idea...

    Thank you guys again for the compliments. Bryan, in regards to water jacketing the turbo housing....we didn't feel it necessary to water jacket the exhaust housing itself, being the complete header, merge collector, wastegate piping, center cartridge, as well as dump pipe is jacketed. The turbo has ceramic bearings with self contained lubrication, so it doesn't generate the heat nearly as much as a standard turbo system that uses the engine oil for lubrication. Another benefit of this is the engine oil doesn't require nearly the maintenance as a result of it not being plumbed and circulated through the turbo. Even prior to installing the racing seat, we never had heat issues in the engine bay area. Now with the racing seat, we have ample clearance between the turbo and base of the seat. The engine temps stay really low, even in the heat of the summer, with our water routing as well as benefitting from the additional air flow the new seat allows.
