    Garret fitting

    I have got my hands on a brand new evo5 garret turbo for not a lot of money

    Planning on fitting it to my gsi z20let

    looking at an engine build over the winter, but Unsure on everything I'll need

    Turbo
    Manifold
    Larger front mount intercooler
    some kind of software (anyone advise?)


    what about injectors, AFM and stuff like that, will these need to be changer yes? if so what to?

    Im finding it cheaper than going down the VXR part routes, as my dad is a fabricator and has sorted the manifold and pipework

    Any help is much appreciated

    to fit the turbo
    new oil an water pipes
    a suport for manifold an turbo off the Block
    engine you want to uprate pistons an road i would say
    why the engine is in bits tidy up the casting on exhaust ports a bit to match to manifold
    injectors change them to VXR spec or bigger 550cc once from MSD ?

    if you are that short on info you really are going to get yourself into a hole mate. I would call Regal and ask for their advise. They are the only tuner that has access to Arno who writes custom maps for jobs just like this
