1993 Wrangler Rot Fix / Turbo

Bought this vehicle for $500. It's the 4.0 with a 5 speed.

Came with a body lift and 33x12.5 tires

Replaced all brake lines, wheel cylinders, drums and one caliper(bleeder snapped)

Doing some rot fix on the floor/body. Also the middle body mount on both side will have a plate welded in.

Replaced both rear axle seal and pinion seal while flushing diff and cleaning rust off diff cover(no picture)

Cut out tinted/painted rear vinyl and replaced with 20mil clear cinyl(half as thick, but was only thing at the store near me)

After I finish all the rot fix and paint her with bed liner I will be installing a T04E .63 ar turbo at 8psi. . .
now before you all go "dreamer thread' I was the first documented case of turboing a Kia Sephia (which cost me about $500)
and I currently have a turbo 350z which I completed for $2k

Doing the jeep should cost me around $400 @8psi tuned via FPR around 75psi and if needed a s-afc2(have from my old sephia), but I think I can dial it in without it

Here's some pics after two days of work.

I noticed another rot spot on fender after I welded the spot I cut-out.

Just ordered
T04E .63 AR Turbo with Internal Wastegate (8psi) $147.99
4 Bolt Flange $13
300LPH Inline Fuel pump $49.99
FPR 1:1 ratio $22.00
Oil Filter Sanwich Plate $20.95

Total cost to turbo so far $251.94

I need to measure to see what size intercooler I can buy and where I am going to put it. (most likely a top-mount, which I'll have to figure out a hood scoop or vent system)

More rot fixing. Left side is almost done. Have to sand and just patch the floor.

Left side done. Right side just about done.
Also I need an idea for a hood scoop for the intercooler. I have this dragon nose hood scoop in my garage which I can modify and fiberglass to the hood, but not sure if I want it mounted. A
ny idea's for another scoop for my top-mount intercooler?









MAYBE??

Windows turned out awesome! Nice job on the body work so far. Turbo's aren't for jeep dreamers any more, a couple of companies have made a bolt on kit, but i'm anxious to see how your custom set up comes out. As far as the hood scoop... to me, that scoop is almost too much for the hood. Campbell enterprises makes a fiberglass hood with scoop, and one with flairs incorporated and you could lose your stock fenders. If you plan on going bigger than 33s it would allow you to have minimal lift, and up tire size.
But every jeep is different so do what you like the best!

I agree with the scoop being a little too much that's why I'm looking for and alternative(cheap, but looking ok and I want to stay away from water to air)
I do not plan on going bigger than 33's.

Update. Riveted scoop to hood. Fiberglassed(short strand because I was too lazy to use resin) filled twice and smoothed out(quick job not perfect, but my friend couldn't notice when I showed him in person) The stock bump in the nose of the scoop I might fill it to match the scoop because it looks a little off

Painted hood(undercoating) to see if I like it. Undercoating sprayed a dark brown(might still keep it) instead of the black it was suppose to. In addition I need to seal the body fill because once it dried you could see it through the undercoating.

Painted completely with Rustoleum truck bed liner. My frist two cans would only spray upside down and inconsistently(PITA, since i had to modify a plastic spray handle to get them not to drip everywhere), but the the 3rd/4th can sprayed properly and you don't see any lines like it was rattle canned. I need to primer seal the body fill spots and re-spray with the liner since you can see where it was filled.

Installed front and rear leather seats from an 01 eclipse convertible.

Rear seats now comfortable fit two men without hitting head on anything. (we are both 5'7" I'm 145lb he's about 185) Also have some nice storage space under the rear seats(might make some sort of lockable storage)

The fiberglass job turned out pretty good! Did you open holes under the snout so you can use them?

I'm waiting to see how I'm going to clock the intercooler. Then I will cut the hood right above it
