Sniperscout's K24 Turbo Build

Well I recently got back from a vacation in Iraq and have some money to blow on the EM2.

When I built my first K24 I said I wouldn't be going boost and that the power I had would be enough. Some told me I would eventually get the itch for more power. Well as it turns out...they were right.

I now have essentially a brand new motor built by ERL.

ERL assembled and built k24a1 with superdeck system
Balanced and polished crankshaft
ACL race bearings
Crower rods
Wiseco 8.8:1 pistons
New k24a1 crankshaft pulley
PORTFLOW fully built, ported, and polished k20a2 head
Full supertech valvetrain
Supertech dishtop and oversize valves
OEM headgasket
ARP headstuds
Brian Crower stage 2 turbo cams
Hybrid Racing timing chain tensioner
Spuntek lower chain guide
ERL modified S2000 oil pump


After doing some talking with a friend and some extensive reading I have decided to go with the Precision 6262 turbo with an .82 AR. My goal for the motor is 500hp.

I have also been accumulating a lot of projects over the past couple years that never got started. I have a set of prelude oem calipers and rotors (which are significantly larger), ep3 rear discs, yakima roof rack and a few other small things. All of these will finally be coming to fruition.

As of today my parts have started trickling in. My Competition stg 4 clutch, Hybrid Racing 70mm throttle body, and Skunk2 intake manifold came.

THE CAR:







THE PARTS:








I will be posting lots of pictures as this build comes along. I have a lot more parts coming over the next several days. I am hoping to have the turbo project done by January.

Interesting, I ran a Precision turbo (SC61) and intercooler a few years back in one of my miatas, and it was great, no issues. Maybe a recent thing this is?

Looks like the exhaust turbine is coming apart/failing on those pics, or some sort of shaft issue.

From what i understand this is a recent issue of turbos produced in the last 12 months or so. Some people say the shaft is too weak, some blame back pressure.. who knows

Nice build, but i gotta ask, why would you spend all that money on a huge motor to run a little turbo and 500 hp?????

People make 500hp all day on stock k motors and they live for quite along time... just didnt make sense to me, so i ask why.

Put a borg warner s300 on there for half the price of a precision and have the same performance gain.

that borg warner is the same price as the precision one.
I am already going to have traction issues with 500 so whats really the point to going any higher. I still want the car to be very streetable and run pump gas.

You should get a tune on race gas too then with a higher boost setup.

Just because

How do you figure?? a ball bearing precision 6262 is $1,300 bucks give or take a hundred. A journal is $900 plus ship on both

The s300 is $750-800 give or take. So how is that the same price?

If you want to chip in some $ for the extra tuning time then I will!

every price i saw for the BW was 1100-1300


Put on my Ktuned billet shifter arm. I was worried it wouldnt fit on my revo shifter but it did. With some minor modifications i was able to fit my strut king lateral short throw adapter as well.
The shift arm reduced almost all of the play in the shifter and makes for a much nicer shift feel.

The Original Arm on the revo...as you can see the bushing is extremely loose.





KTuned arm installed:
