Big Turbo 124 Build
« on: January 16, 2018, 08:25:32 pm »
Hey Abarthisti! I'm building a big turbo 124 and documenting those whole thing on YouTube as I go.

So far it has a slightly bigger turbo, e85, tune, and a few other goodies. The slightly bigger turbo is going to be replaced with a much bigger turbo when the built engine goes in.

Episode 1 - Intake build, exhaust, washer fluid reservoir


Episode 2 - Catch can, Recaros


Episode 3 - E85 Conversion


Would love to know what you think!

    Here's episode 5. How to OBD II flash the 124 and why comparing dyno's isn't the best practice.

    I’m enjoying watching this. I like your simple yet focused approach.

    How much more fuel did the car use with E85?
