    Hi there! I'm from Bulgaria and i'm going to show my project and to exercise my poor english :p. I bought my Moskvich 6 years ago but now i feel confident to do it proper. Last time that i rebuild the engine it bring me confident that it will drift . But the body is in veri bad shape,of course you can get nice Moskvich for veri low price ,but you know....it's just not the same car !

    Oh and just to know it's pretty much scrap project

    So the major things i made so far : put a scrap turbo in it , then intercooler ,after that i put bigger turbo and bigger intercooler -it was to fast for me . It start to broke diffs ang gearboxes,so i put a mercedes W201 rear suspension - sure get some improvement.After that i put Ford sierra gearbox -still going well ,and finalli weld the diff with 3,9 FDR - it was fun!


    So here some pics.

    pic of the rear suspension -i cut it with a 75mm on side to get it in the fenders

    025372424.


    the tire is not so big as it seems

    025659284.


    i use stock moskvich shocs

    025659293.

    litle bit more room for bars

    025659309.

    and the engine got the Opel Record 2,3 td turbocharger

    025659980.

    little bit flated the pistons

    025663117.

    port and "pollish" the head just waiting the propper manifold

    025663128.

    and for the header i start extra low budget - as i fab my head flange

    025663131.

    just the starting

    029390366.

    all done

    029536770.

    last triming on the flange

    029536780.

    029536788.

    029536795.

    the bends for downpipe

    029967159.


    029967217.

    got it done

    029967245.

    here's with Airesearch T3 but it's to big for me

    029984317.

    just to get some stance

    029984345.



    029984372.

    made hidro too

    030455183.

    and the pressure plate(Opel vectra 2.0-who knows)

    030685258.

    last minute turbo swap

    030751481.

    030751484.

    well that's pretty much for today..can't say everything in one post

    P.S. I drive it on lpg- the poor man's fuel lol :D

    Cool as hell! Awesome stuff on a super low budget!

    What carb are you using? Was it much work to convert it to blow-thru?

    Well the carb on the begining was the stock one but not hermetique enough and smelled onLPG all over the car,so i deside to put the mono-jetronic from our first VW passat b3 and the improvement was obviousand the throttle respons too! For blow thru on lpg is pretty easy ,as was my case i used atmospheric reducer vaporizer and i just balaced it to boost pressure and there you have it- extra low budget turbo Moskvich :p

    Advises for type of my rear suspension are wellcome :nod:

    that's very clean but i have to fabricate another steering knuckles

    [​IMG]

    that was my first idea where i'll keep the original steering knuckles use orignal uniball joint on the botom and upper uniball too , just on 2 main points.....but the fron is nothing more...

    [​IMG]


    as i said : advises are wellcome :)
