Territory Turbo Mods, KW & Quarter Times

Recommended Posts

Been a while since there has been much action in the Territory section here but I found it really useful with planning the mods on mine, so thought I’d fire something up again to see if people are still out there modding them. 

 

Thought it could be a list of Mods, dyno figures & quarter times if you have them. I’ll kick it off.

 

Mamba GTX3584R Turbo 

80lb Siemens injectors

Walbro in tank 450lph fuel pump

Still running stock Intercooler (didn’t have $$$ to upgrade but next on list)

Custom Intercooler water spray set-up using redirected window washers 

Running E85 (have a Gull E85 pump 2 mins from my house so easily managed and thought better to run cooler until Intercooler replaced then I’ll do 98 tune too)

Dyno tune at Torque Performance in Auckland

290kw at the wheels running 12psi 

 

Havnt been down the quarter in it yet but did a low 14 dead stock so hoping it might sneak into 12s even with stock Intercooler still holding it back. Will head to track next Friday.

Yep, debunged exhaust and running K&N filter with modded stock airbox. Tuner said rear muffler was buggered though which may have lost a few kW but was seeing a bit of valve float at higher boost + high intake temps with top mount so left it at a safe tune for now. Will do valve springs and Intercooler and push it harder but goes pretty hard for a 7 seat family wagon!

I just got a 2008 with 188000km on it and went to ask the local tuner about mods.

They said $3700 for -

Debung, air filter, 1000 injectors, tuner box and hi flow cat.

 

It seemed a little pricey to me?

What do you guys think? Will I also need valve springs and a fuel pump or anything else?

 

Ps: It needed front diff bushes done ($600 fitted) and a new drivers seat belt ($250 from ford) to pass rego.

Thanks :)

I had a login for this site in 2004 when I had a turbo Ute but don’t have that email address anymore.

 

Totaly stock as far as I can tell. 

I’d just like it to be different. Nothing insane that will break drivelines or break the bank. 

Just want to satisfy my rebel urges knowing that it’s not stock lol.

if you PM me the details (e.g. username and matching email) of your old account, I can set that up again for you with the email address on this account.

 

1000cc injectors are definitely overkill. Get some cheap 42lb'ers that are tested for flow to be close enough.

 

Valve springs are hit and miss, so if you need them, you'll know about it at the time of tuning. So you can go without them for now, but you might "need" them later.

There is no reason not to get 1000cc injectors.

 

They are only $600 and will more or less future proof your build. 

 

What you don't want to do is to buy injectors twice cos you decide to turn the boost up or run e85 one day.

What state you in

You don't need fuel pump and can save money with cheaper injectors. 

 

Definitely get the gearbox tuned. 

 

I got 750cc injectors. Typhoon air box.  Debung and a tune for ecu  and gearbox. Runs 12 psi now. Car drives great. 

Start there and mod  more later if you need. You will be surprised how hard it will go

 

Obviously an intercooler would be good but but not really needed unless you gas it up all the time.

 

Puff it correct.  Don't buy any parts yet.  Talk to tuner and he will give you options

Assuming you're running a RWD?  I've always wondered what if any mods the driveline on an AWD would need.   Even running mid 300's at the wheels though should be ok for the standard AWD drive I would guess

Update on my Territory, ran a 13.3 last night on the quarter with me braking before the line cos was going to break out running DYO, so should have a 13.1 in it. Stock cooler was really battling so next step is a front mount, battery side intake & valvesprings to hopefully get down towards mid 12s.

 

Id definitely recommend going bigger than 40lb on injectors as not a massive price diff and allows for future mods.

 

Driveline wise, at about 300kwaw my ZF is starting to flare a bit (although it has done 180k) so I won’t feel too comfortable pushing it much more, no wheel spin of course being 4WD so launches are pretty hard. Il probably stick with early 300kws and hopefully consistent mid/high 12s to save having to drop big money on a built box. Apparently the input shafts are often first to go in the ZFs.

42lb injectors cost about $150 or so whereas it's $600-$800 for 1000cc injectors. I'd say that's a massive price difference. The good thing about 42lb'ers is they automatically limit you to a power range that means your driveline is likely to surivve them being on a high (but sill safe) duty cycle (maxed out)

Ok, guess I’m thinking New Zealand prices then because over here you are still looking $400+ for a decent 42lb set so stepping up to 60 or 80 isn’t much more.

that's strange , if I plant my foot in my territory it just breaks into wheel spin, front and back.

Saw your car there last night mate, Impressive stuff. Interesting about only netting 290kw on E85, I guess the AWD sucks up abit of power?

Tuner was seeing a bit of valve float & intake temps high with stock Intercooler so didn’t push it at all with the tune, didn’t even play with the timing even though on E85. Also had a buggered rear muffler he reckoned might have been worth 5-10kw. just ran E85 to run cooler until I could afford front mount & valvesprings but will push it more on the tune when these are done. But not sure Trans will like too much more power so may retune on 98 until I upgrade the ZF

Ah right got ya, Few more E85 pumps popping up around Auckland which is good! Onehunga recently opened up which is 5mins from my house so will be running that once it is tune time.
