im pretty sure you cant use the (i) head on the eta motor only on the super eta's the eta's have flat pistons and the super etas have a dome shaped piston. so theres clearence issues. also if its a 325(e) and your redline is only 4500rpm its pretty pointless to turbo because your trubo probably wont start spooling untill 3000rpm so that will only be 1500rpm of boost.
so thats my opinion that i would contribute.
im going for the m50 or s50. just have to part it out and find a motor in canada i know the s50's are hard to find with low kms

yeah ive scrapped the whole turbo m20b27 and have found a nice m20b25 motor to boost.
ive also found a holset H1E but one with an 18cm^2 exhaust housing, a bit too large, so im trying to track down a 12 or 14cm^2 housing. ive heard NADP can get em but ive had some trouble with calling them and what not. but all is well, I also received my tax return today

im looking to get around 300whp

this holset should do quite well,
on a stock m20 at 14psi it made 324whp
but it spools a bit late with the current exhaust housing

to much boost and your going to blow that motor. you going to need bigger injectors, fuel pump. and some sort of fuel managment to run that thing properly. ohh and a better clutch because that thing will be a slip like a motha.

hehe we should have a rather large monster garage weekend for building my turbo m20

lots of stuff to do:
put in the motor, new clutch, all turbo goodies, mount fmic, all gauges and ms wired, tuning.

someone with a large garage would be perfect!

would be alot of fun, done it before with honda motors.

wont be ready to do it til spring or winter
