View Full Version : 7A-FTE set up questions?

01-11-2011, 11:13 PM
I am going to do a turbo set up on my 7AFE and I am having trouble finding forged parts. I was wondering if anybody had a solution for my search. I have also looked on the forums on this site and haven't seen any info about the 7AFE turbo set up, So it would really be a big help if I got as much info as possible.

I think Eagle may make rods and Wiesco (sp?) may make pistons.

You may have a little better luck on 6gc.net They are primarily 6th gen and will have a greater knowledge base on the 7afe

Holy shitake batman!!!

That setup is using a 12:1 FMU!!!!!

WOW... 43psi fuel pressure at 0 boost...
55psi at 1psi boost.
67psi at 2psi boost
79psi at 3psi boost
91psi at 4psi boost
103psi at 5psi boost
115psi at 6psi boost
127psi at 7psi boost
139psi at 8psi boost
151psi at 9psi boost.

No wonder vortech recomends starting with a base fuel pressure of 33psi... It should be noted that with ANY fuel pump, that as pressure increases, fuel flow decreases...
