what about fuel injectors injectors? im not sure if they are the same impedance as the srt-4's..

what are the spec's on the jeeps injectors?

srt-4 03 injectors are 527cc at 58psi
srt-4 04-05 injectors are 577cc at 58 psi.

i figured if they would fit that you can run a return line and use boost regulated fuel compensating for the extra air in the cylinders.

extremeturboshop.ccoomm He builds upgraded SRT4 turbos for a major vender on the SRT4forum. He used to build my turbos when I was a test mule for SRT4s. He can do anything from standard rebuilt to upgrading the turbo to make it capable of pushing 400hp at the crank ( or more prob. by now ).

His name is Rob Reese. Tell him a guy named Bryan that used to test SRT4 turbos told you to call him. He prob. has 1 or 50 turbos sitting on the shelf for an SRT4. He used to do batches in the 20-80 range at a time ( depending on the level of mods/money/machine work ).

You should never pay a whole lot for one though. A good working order SRT4 turbo/manifold would be worth $250 tops. Or close to free if it needs rebuilt.

BTW: any of you guys that are doing this swap. I HIGHLY recommend porting the exhuast manifold. There is a TON of power to be had in that thing. Look at some of the versions a company called "PTP performance" has for the SRT4. I used to do the testing for them, and the manifolds made HUGE difference.

yea i have ported numerous manifolds my self for the guy's in the SRT-4 community. more local than anything, but porting these manifolds i know net 10-20 hp just on a port and polish alone. there is extra power to be made here.

I saw on the Reno site that you were still getting the manifold adapters?
Any chance I could get my hands on one?
Thanks

Hi, GreaseMonkey69! Any good news/photos with tubing?
I'm just about to start my turbo mod too, and want to go with air to air intercooler also. Looking at my TJ's grill I can hardly imagine intercooler behind it. Looks like it's too narrow over there. How thick your friend's cooler is?

here are the pictures of the mandrel bent aluminum tubing. he is using a Greddy Type-S blow off valve (the pink thing on the piping) instead of the mopar blow off valve. the aluminum core he said is 2 1/2 inches thick. ill ask and see what exactly needed to be cut to make the intercooler fit.




here is a picture of his devils own water meth injection kit. so for hot days and he wants cooler intake temps he is using a devilsown injection kit. he starts spraying at 2psi and is full 100% duty cycle at 8psi. the picture of the tubing is where he installed the nozzle to spray the water/meth mixture

This is an AWESOME idea! I have an '03 PT cruiser GT as my 2nd car and I can tell you that with the 5spd manual it rips pretty well. When they started putting the 2.4L in the wrangler, swapping to the turbo 2.4 was one of the first things I thought would be cool. Hope this works out!

Thanks a lot. Nice tubing. The only (well, not only of course) thing that worries me is the pipe after cooler. Because of the intake manifold design it have to go more or less the way it goes on your pictures. I mean - in front of engine, behind radiator, and (the worst thing) too close to turbo itself. That's why i am considering the possibility of changing stock intake, for some kind of sport receiver, if you understand what i mean. May be it will help to low temperature a bit.

This vodka stuff injection thing looks too dangerous for me. In my thread "2.4l turbo. Why not to do this" there is a story about how few drops of water almost spoiled the engine.

That's funny. The alcoy injection kit that screwed my SRT4 motor was a "devilsown" kit. Its a good kit though, other then the check valve issue. Not to meantion, as long as the tank is mounte lower then the nozzle, its no a issue. Then again, its one more thing to deal with. It could also be a slght help in adding fuel, but you never really wanna rely on the alcoy injection for a correct air/fuel ratio. If you do, its only a matter of time before you forget to fill the tank or don't realiize its low, or the pump fails, or a line comes off or what ever.

Also.. Everyone always posted these charts, graphs, and science crap that talked about how water/meth mixed at 50/50 was best. Maybe in some cases it is, but on my SRT4 it liked pure 100% methonal the most ( coming from a guy that shared at the knock sensor read out, intake air temps, and wideband air/fuel ratios at 120+mph ). 50/50 or Even 100% water didn't hurt anything, but its really liked the 100% meth. I did use some really strong windsheild wiper fluid when I couldn't get any methanol.
