The MORE POWER disease

Ok so the next big round of work for the car is to delete the CIS fuel injection and replace it with a modern EFI system. I will be installing a MegaSquirt DIY engine control unit to gain full control over the fuelling curve. Why would you want to do that? To add more boost of course! Replacing the KKK turbo is a Garrett GT28R ballbearing unit. Which means I'll need to fabricate a new manifold, oil lines, exhaust and intake plumbing. Whew.

Mock up of the new manifold and turbo compared to the old one above. The KKK has completely seized and can only be spun with a ratchet attached. The bearing failure was due to oil starvation caused by a hairline crack in the hard oil supply pipe.
