Read a few Nova builds and got inspired.

Is a GT1752 meant for a Saab, a lot of people run them on A series engines with good results. Is only a little guy so should spool up quick.

Im hoping I can get away with putting a new flange on the existing cast manifold like this, maybe rotated 180 degrees to clear the engine mount



From here made 187bhp on 1 bar of boost on a 1.4 8v.

If not will go for a log style manifold.

Oil take off just tee off the oil pressure sensor.
Oil drain will have to tap into the sump.
Will add an oil cooler, may need to relocated oil filter.
Fueling got the Speedunio stand alone ECU, also got redtop injectors, Walbro 255 and a AEM wideband
For compression ratio I'm going to use a decompression plate, read a few builds where they worked out fine. Courtenay used to sell a turbo kit for this engine that used one.
Intercooler is a tricky one, don't really want to hang it out the grille, considering mounting one next to the engine opposite side to where a standard mini rad goes.
Standard actuator is at 8psi (about 0.6 bar) which should be a good place to start.
probably put a cheap blow off valve on as well but not sure it's necessary
Exhaust should be able to chop up a Saab downpipe and join to existing exhaust, might be a little quiet though
