The Beginnings Of A 5e-fhe Turbo Project
Posted 11 May 2007 - 02:12 AM
I'll be leavening the 5E-FHE stock to start off with and run low boost (6-7 PSI), eventually getting my spare engine worked on and the compression ratio dropped.
Current list of lined up parts
- CT9 Turbo
- 4E-FTE Exhaust manifold
- 4E-FTE Injectors
- 4E-FTE ECU
- Oil and Water Lines
- Oil Filter Relocator
- 4E-FTE Sump w/Pickup
- 4E-FTE Wiring Loom
- 4E-FTE Map Sensor
- Random Gauge
- Random Blowoff Valve
Bits I still need
- Intake Piping
- Fuel Cut Defender / Some kind of fuel controller?
- Thermostat Housing
My first point of the unknown is the ECU, I think its manual (and I have an auto Sera), should I just keep the stock 5E-FHE Auto ECU and run something like a fuel cut defender or fuel controller piggyback style, or try to source an Auto 4E-FTE ECU?

definatly run low boost on a 5e at first, I dont think anyone has properly proven that the 5e pistons cant handle the conversion but the fte pistons or custom ones would be the ones to go with.
Yeah, lookin forward to this one dude......

5E-FHE ECUs are the same, year for year, between auto and manual.
4E-FTE ECUs differ. The difference is that the 4E-FTE auto box has two electronic modes, a power mode where the gearbox hangs onto the lower ratio for longer and, I think, a 2nd gear start mode for poor grip conditions.
I think you could run an auto Sera on a manual 4E-FTE ECU - just needs someone brave to try out my theory.

The auto box buttons involve a lot of extra re-wiring as a Auto ECU has 3 plug ECU - 26 pin + 16 pin + 12 pin, whereas the manual ECU has 2 plugs like the Sera - 26 pin + 16 pin.

that BOV ain't lookin legal (bonus brand new fuel reg too)
Close Up of some stuff: One, Two.
- CT9 Turbo
- Exhaust Manifold
- Intake Manifold (dont realy need)
- Oil/Water/Intake Pipes
- Oil Filter relocator
- Wiring Loom
- Another Sump
- Four (!) throttle bodies for some reason
- Enough paper to start a house fire
- Other stuff!
Best $500 ever? time will tell...

Inlet manifold - should be same as existing one.
Fuel injector rail - should be the same.

Correction - inlet manifold is 99% the same, but has the air temp sensor in the front - silly me - you'll need this, but match it up to a throttle body that fits your wiring
