Default JZZ30 Soarer GT35 Single Conversion.


The stock twins on the Soarer finally bit the bullet, they have lived for 178,000km's and lived well.... Until I was putting up the highway and decided to teach a Civic a good lesson in manners. Upon doing so though, I started seeing my boost gauge bouncing erratically between 5 and 10 psi. I ran the car home and found that the front turbo had seized, and my stock rad had yet again blown the top tank.

So I toggled my options around landing on a GT35 big single conversion, and stuck with it. I ordered my parts yesterday afternoon and got an estimated two weeks ETA on them.

The first step of it all was to tackle the removal of the stock CT12A's, this was by no means whatsoever an easy task. I swear whoever had them off last put every exhaust stud in with an impact, it took me two hours alone to get the headers off, and another two to wrangle the stock coolant and oil hard lines out. I wish the turbos were done like a 2JZ's on my engine, it would have saved me many hours of grief, but I got them.

Here I was in the process or removing the stock turbos, I can assure you that it was in no way a walk in the park, many many, curse words were employed...


Well, there they are, off and out of my way. A combined total of about 12 hours, several cases of beer, and my iPhone for music helped.


I did a lot of cleaning up after everything was all said and done with the removal of the turbos, a three pass cut wax and de greasing.


I got bored and ran out of things to do on my other car for the time being, so I decided to bust out the old buffing wheel and brighten some things up... In a BIG way.


Some more buffing, you can maybe even see that I had re painted the valve covers.


And right there I got my $500 worth of FORGED Racing radiator installed.


Here is what the car looks like for anyone wondering.

Here is why I took the old turbos off, this is a PRIME example of why ceramic turbine wheels are no good. (Rear Turbo)


This was the seized turbo, I managed to free it up, and get it spinning well again, but will no be saving it by any means... (Front Turbo)


I will update the thread as much as I can, I am sort of sparatically receiving parts as we speak.

Hey guys, sorta fell off the band wagon with this forum, here's what the finished product was though. I sold the car about two weeks after finishing the project and moved onto a Mitsubishi GTO that replaced this and my Stealth.
