2014 WK2 Turbo Build!!

What is up guys. I know the forums are not as active as they were in years past during the WK1 days.....but I wanted to let you guys know about my turbo build! I will be documenting everything from fabrication to installation to dyno tuning to drag racing on my YouTube Channel. Would really mean a lot if you guys could subscribe to the channel and like the videos! AD Motorsports will be doing the build and the truck is already there! : ) Truck already ran a 12.83 @ 106 in stock form and you can see that video on my channel or in the Track forum here.

Here is a link to the Part 1 in the Video series. I will be releasing weekly until the project is done. Next video will be about the actual parts going on the car.


I realize most of you think I am an idiot for doing this on the stock engine, but I have my reasons why it will work. Truck will be on E85 with a very mild tune. If it blows up I build it and have another video series for you to watch lol. Cheers! Allen

X2!! AD has a reputation and it isn't good. I remember their shop WK2 that was smoking like a diesel at ATCO.

AD sounded pretty familiar indeed.

I have heard all the same things you guys have seen and heard......I went and talked with Adam in person for a while and felt very good about the direction of the build and trusted him too. His name will be all over the internet now because of me, hoping that means increased attention to detail etc. Modifying cars is always a risk, I am good with it. Cheers

Having his name all over the internet because of you isn't going to matter. All builders try and do a great job for their customers. I've had great conversations with Tim Mahoney on FB and he's very helpful. Suggesting your build being all over the internet will somehow make a difference isn't fair or accurate and suggests they do lousy work unless someone is watching which isn't the case IMO.

Agreed and was not implying that was or would be the only reason I am doing it. The main reason is I spent over two hours talking with Adam (shop owner) and I feel good about it. I also have ran E85 for ten years and am a big believer it is capabilities with regards to cooling properties. I am okay with the risks and like the idea of this being a "science project". Who knows maybe the truck might do well
