From Spain ( 2 x Sierra)
« on: June 11, 2013, 09:49:48 AM »
Hi

I'm new here. I saw this forum recently and I like it too much!
 I've two and a half sierra's.

This is my daily drive:






It has a 2.0 8v DOHC turbo. I'm using a megasquirt to drive it. I had two engines broken by conrod failure. I will open a thread about it conversion when having time.


Another one is a xr4i from 83', this is fully stock. I don't use it a lot.




The another I've is an old red 3 door mk2. But had an accident with it two years ago with it. I left it in house instead of sending to scrapyard as it was my first car and I'd like to repair it in a near future.




For short time I'm going to install a BOB engine instead of the 2.0 DOHC in the white mk2 3 door and turbo it. I'd like to get 300 bhp with stock internals. In fact, searching info about turbing this engines is as I found this forum.

I've the donnor scorpio in house:

Hi there and welcome there is lots of information about turbocharging the v6 engines be it a single or twin turbos. 300bhp is good for running standard engine internals think they will run 1 bar but fuelling has to be spot on for longevity.
Your very lucky to have 3 3 doors  :mellow:

Yes, I saw a lot of threads. I think I will go with single turbo as is cheaper. Maybe with a little more of lag than if it was twinturbo, but the engine has nice torque, so I think it will not be a problem.

Your nick is familiar to me, probably from the sierra owners club?

Nice looking sierra's.
thanks

something has change since that initial pics hehe

the white sierra was painted to imperial blue and had a BOB installed after breaking another conrod with the dohc turbo









Now I've spring problems (apex), as is too low in the front and probably too high in the rear




also bought another sierra  :ph34r:







it needs a lot of love, new rear bumper, new head gasket, new paint..
