Default Living that single life

After blowing up the S480 and sending shrapnel through my S300, I decided to do something I have wanted to do for a while. I decided to swap the shop truck to a ďbigĒ single. It isnít really that big by todayís standards, but it is definitely a big change for me. This is the first non stock single I have ever run on anything I owned. So far, I like it, but I have a few things I need to finalize. The turbo is a 472/87/1.0 with no wastegate anywhere. I really like the way it all came together. That 4Ē exhaust was a pain, and the 5Ē intake was a tight fit too. Here are a few pics for you all to check out. I still need to install a new MAF sensor, and I need to build a brace for the intake so it isnít hanging all that weight off the turbo.

Awesome.

I did the fender exhaust on white devil for a while, it is absurdly loud, lol. You gotta take a video while getting on it.

That's how I had it ran with the compound setup, and I didn't feel like running a whole exhaust.

It really wasn't bad with the compounds, but there is no doubt it is louder with the single. Hopefully it isn't unbearable.

how loose is your converter, josh? everyone i always talk to that runs a big single loves them cause the converter matches the turbo or hates them cause the converter is too tight. or you get the guys that want to tow at 2k rpm on a 475

id love a play truck with a big single on it, loose converter with great coupling and probably keep lock up out of the pic till WOT so that sucker comes on fast

Hey, I did use the quotation marks. Back in the day, that would have been a huge single though.

James, itís almost like the truck was made for a bigger single turbo. It has a 3k rpm precision converter and a SoCal 9100 cam. It drives really nice. So far Iím loving it.

In other news, I got the intake completely finished with a maf sensor and a nice brace. Iím really happy with how everything went together.

I just ordered a s400 single kit and turbo yesterday for my LB7. Along with a new converter from Evan. Guess I’ll experience the s400 single life here soon as well Josh!

Seal up that air filter from under hood heat. Throw on a turbo blanket and enjoy the spool
