After five years of beating my poor 06 silverado to all over the the place and racking up 320,000 kms on it, I wanted some more power and to start working towards an overhaul. It still needs to be a daily driver, go down back roads/bush, and embarrass a hemi or two, My friend built a 427 stroker with a trick turbo set up and I decided to see how cheap I could build my own turbo system. I used a set of ls header flanges, 3' skid 40 pipe, gm3 turbo, ebay complete intercooler kit with hks knock off BOV, knn air filter, ebay oil line kit. So here it is after a couple months of fabricating and ordering parts off ebay. manifold started Bolted down ready for welding prep work on the turbo fabing up the exhaust dump drilled and tapped the oil line every thing welded together fitting the manifold. required a little firewall/hammer love. turbo mounted up. intercooler mounted up. Things to come this week is finish the intercooler piping, drain line for the turbo, wiring for the mass air flow sensor, wideband and boost gauges, ignition wire protectors, re route the heater hoses and order the turbo blanket. total to date not including gauges and six puck clutch is 660$, this includes border fees to ship lots of this stuff to Canada.
