5mge engine wanting to put a turbo on
Hey I just was trying to figure out if putting a turbo on a 5mge engine was worth the hassle. I am modifying my 84 mkII supra and am trying to find the easiest setup for the most power but am new to setting up a turbo to my new project. Any ideas for the ultimate setup?

wow dude im building my project rite friken now! LOL
ok dont even think about ultimate rite now.
first off i think you should turbo ur car with a easy setup. MK3 ;P makes this quiet less difficult
Exhoust manifold, turbo, downpipe from Rabid chimp, new gaskets, oil and coolant lines, bung for oil return, intercooler and piping, and ofcourse the blow off valve.
i lucked out with a manifold 2 turbos and oil lines for deals.
and with some of my klnowledge in cars i pieced my self a decent turbo kit for around 1k.
BUT!!! you also would want to get a fuel pump!
My car already as an upgraded fuel pump with electronic regulator.
so if you cant get hook ups and not know what to look for.
you maybe be near 2k.
rabid chimp sales an amazing kit i wish one day to purchase.
but im taking a chance with a used turbo. but i know for sure 1 will hold up for a year atleast.
getting one rebuilt(thats why i have 2!)
so first step create a drawing or find a turbo engine picture and create a list to purchase
then while your gathering the items to turbo your car prepare it.
timing, water, head gasket, and maintaining
and while doing all that. RESEARCH
haha those are my steps to prepare myself
i actually go threw the steps in my head and put everything together outside the car.
IM A FREAK! but i hate getting stuck in the middle of my projects.
living on an island blows for parts ;P
but yea dude. message me if u have any questions and believe me i might even ask you some
i get surprised everyday for what else can go wrong. LOL
but this is just my o2 please no yelling

http://rabidchimp.com/rcp-turbo-kit.html is a good, yet spendy start. Sure, you can find some of the bits and pieces cheaper elsewhere, but the kit is COMPLETE and has everything you need to boost your car. Base model kit, with rising rate fuel pressure regulator, $3574.63, and $4138.89 for the upgraded kit. You can purchase individual items for the kit too (from me). You'll not find an application-specific intercooler and piping kit for the car anywhere else.

id definitely recommend a proper engine management & wideband. Personally I did a diypnp megasquirt & lc1. Probably a good idea to do a mhg and headstuds. My 272,000km motor is still holding together after a month of boosting @ 12psi and being relentlessly beat on.
Your motor wont last very long advancing ign timing under boost, idk about accuracy of a rrfpr but I bet it would be a little scary at any boost level if you were watching it with a wideband.

i was planning on getting chimps wideband because his downpipe takes both. woot! and was planing to run an safc for a mild tune. nothing nuts. just safe. then go from there.

I think everyone is doing a 5M-GTE now =P but i had a few questions too because i just got a complete 7M-GTE for a deal and the main things i still need to figure out is; do i need to get custon oil lines or can i just get regular ones because im not paying 150 for custom ones unless i HAVE to.. next is what kind of water lines do i need, once again custom or can i buy some generic and make my own custon ones without paying out the ass? And lastly and most importantly what does it take to put 7M-GTE 440cc injectors on the 5M-GE? And would 440 be too much? Should i just go with the 7M-GE 295s? Thanks in advance.. and yes car freek i do know how to use the search function but i want to ask here anyways..

there is alot of build threads under the sticky. check them out. gave me a lot of info. i just purchased 210cc injectors and i already have a fpr. i would stick with this for a little. im going to run stock boost. cheewoo.

If you are adding the T to the 5M-GE, take your time and do it right. For all the work I'd go Megasquirt to get what you paid for.HKS 5MGTE MKII METH 2JZGTE MKIII

Don't run the 440s. 295s will work, but you'll want to run an aftermarket fuel computer. You'll need to have someone modify the 7mgte oil lines to work on the 5m. You simply cannot use the lines in stock form. If you get the metal coolant lines from the 7mgte, you could probably modify those to work. Otherwise, I have a kit for that as well. To start with, I'd run stock injectors, and a rising rate fuel pressure regulator. It'll work plenty good for 7 psi or so.

Oh sh!t, I was thinking MK3 (just did my buddies 7m with 880's safc big turbo n so on) Yeah since the 5m didn't come with a turbo, you will have a hard time finding turbo oil lines in there. Sorry for the confusion, I seen where you wanted 7m injectors on the 5m, so thought you were going that route. Get some pics and have fun.HKS 5MGTE MKII METH 2JZGTE MKIII
