Wild Steves KA-T Coupe

Figured its time to transfer this over to here since ONE is about dead. I'll share some highlights and the current stuff:

original 3 posts updated. Again, if you want all the details, click the link in the original post. I'll be more detailed from here going forward.

I'll try to answer a few questions I assume will be asked.
-Newest turbo is a GTX3076R .82AR.
-The car was never ever on a dyno. Friend street tuned it every time. Ran 18psi out of the Borgwarner S256sx. Shooting for 20 this year.
-Running LS2 coilpacks.
-Fab guy is Travis (username: flatout) aka wilson speed.
-Yes he made a jig for KA manifolds.

i like what you did with the intake manifold, do you have any comparison/opinion to stock with your setup?

I don't. I bought the intake manifold along with a bunch of other KA stuff.
It makes the car a whole lot easier to work on though, haha.

Why did you cut off the t3/t4 flange on the CX manifold? I'm assuming it was to go t3 flange only?

How much does your friend charge for those ka t3 manifolds?

The way the Borgwarner sat in comparison to my bullseye t3/t4 (in the first pictures) it would've hit my tubs. So we rotated it 90* so bring it inwards.

I can't give an honest number, but if you're really interested you can PM me and I'l give you his number. I'd say around $600.

Some more stuff:
Fitment of turbo. Waiting on some lines and fittings to re-do my PS lines and clean those up and out of my way.



Figured while I was in the steering stuff, I might as well do a solid steering shaft bushing. Turns out, the 27 year old rubber one was pretty beat up.




Took the KF's apart to send the faces to threepiece.us (they're already on their way) for a acid dip and re-chrome. One of them was flaking. I'm going to take the barrels to work and sandblast them and have a friend powdercoat them black.

Not trying to be a dick but the phrase is "might as well". I hate seeing people use that wrong.
