TX COMPLETE GTX35R BB Turblown top mount

Category: Engine - Power Adders
Price: $4500
Private or Vendor Listing: Private Listing
Part Fits (you may select multiples): Series I
Location (US State/Canada/Int): TX
Item Condition: Used

let me start with my story about Turblown; 1 year after placing my order for their Top mount turbo kit I finally received my kit. not surprised many things were wrong and or not functional on the kit. Manifold was leaking, Coolant spewing out after countless times bleeding and burping the system, Downpipe not clearing the APV (30% power loss after 7k rpms). All of these little things have been remedied and fixed.


I am a tune away from having this bad boy working at 100%. the total kit has no more than 14k miles on it. here is what is included in the kit:


1: GTX35R BB T4 turbo, turbo manifold (no leaks)
2: 2 piece downpipe w/ v band clamps (clears APV EASY)
3: Garrett core intercooler w/ iat gm sensor
4: complete intercooler piping, couplers, and clamps.
5: BOV, and tial wastegate w/ dumpipe
6: COMPLETE water, vacuum, and oil lines w/ oil sandwich plate
7: upper and lower radiator thermostat housing (needed to clear turbo)
8: upper and lower racing beat silicon radiator hoses
9: motor mount and motor mount bracket
10: (2) uncapped p2 yellow injectors
11: walbro lph 255 fuel pump (new)
12: AEM water meth injection (may be missing a few mounting bolts)
13: racingbeat ashtray gauge pod
14: dash mounted lotek gauge pod w/ boost, AF (new), and fuel pressure gauges (complete with harness'
15: Greddy profec B spec 2 boost controller COMPLETE w/ harness' and vacuum lines.
16: omp block off plate w/ bolts
17: coolant reservoir relocation bracket
18: PTP lava turbo blanket
19: Heat blanket for PCM harness




The only drawbacks in my opinion with this kit are the heat top mounts produce, and the removal of the omp. I put 30k miles on my last engine 100% turbo broken in and everything 10k miles of which were on the turblown top mount and if it weren't for user error I believe she could have easily gone many more miles.

I did manage to get a partial dyno (dyno was acting up) @ 4300 rpms she put down 250TQ, and 279 HP. Just as she was hitting full boost. Ill post some pictures of the kit later on today. thanks guys!

My price is OBO

My mechanic has been looking for a top mount for a long *** time. I emailed him the thread. I take it you used the Cobb for this?

I already left him a voicemail. Hopefully he calls me back. We are in Dallas. He is a former NHRA RX7 national champion. He has a few shop rx8s, and wants them to be as fast as his Rx7. (No way a renesis does 700 whp, but you gotta start somewhere)

Yeah it wont be no 700 hp with a renesis powering it. I believe mine was probably around 330 rwhp. id say the kit is good for easily 450 hp but the renesis needs some work to get it there.

Sorry to hear that happened. I had to replace one at 42k miles. It started as a misfire and luckily I work on rotates and new I was getting good fuel and spark and so before it hit that point I took it in. Luckily my 08 is under warranty for one more year. As far as a rotary goes they are actually a very simple engine. Much less complex than most think. The fear of these engines in the lack of knowledge about them. Easiest way to repack the engine is by dropping the sub frame engine, Trans and driveshaft all in one and then separate but you need a lift for that. You might try and and purchase and after market warranty that covers that and try and use it but you may need to give it a couple months before you use it after purchase. Sucks but it may be the only way for you to get it fixed and while I don't like that because it's shady. You kind of got screwed in the first place.
