obd1 m52 turbo build
« on: May 18, 2015, 03:22:36 PM »

Hey Everyone,

I'm starting to pile up parts for a lowboost turbo build and am curious how to go about tuning. I've looked into RK tunes, TRM tuning and the similar and cant see spending 1300$. I am currently running a 96 m52 with 110k, elec fan conversion, m50 manifold, m50 pcv setup, m3 midpipe/scorpion catback.

Have not had a chance to see where the compression is at but will ultimately end up doing so before the build.

A friend of mine wants to give me his gt35r, and I am currently looking into a ford 6.0 diesel intercooler that was picked up recently for free: Dimensions: 26.5"x21"x2.5".

I would run a topmount manifold and either a 3" or 3.5" DP

HG and studs would remain stock being that I want to run a low boost setup until im done with body work, Would love to keep the stock MAF as well.

Can someone lead me in the direction of WAR tuning and how it can be done?
