How about this to get the ball rolling…

Thought it was about time I collated what has been happening over the last little while:
In addition to a Forged/Balanced bottom end, Substantial head porting and 274'/9.3mm lift camshafts.

Fuel:
1: Fitted Aeromotive 340lph Fuel Pump.
2: Fitted 800cc Subaru STi Top Feed Injectors feed buy custom Fuel Rails.

Power making stuff:
Fitted Garret GT3071r Turbos with .64 Exhaust housings fitted with 90trim wheels… still in the process of finalising the pipe work and oil feed lines etc.

Engine and Transmission are back in, just setting up/fabricating the Turbo Inlet Piping then it should be all go to hook everything else up… pics of intake piping to come when I get them done.

Well, it goes … note to all don't start em up without the MAP Sensor connected embarassed
Sounds very "CAMMY" cool I wonder if this is due to the engine having much better breathing both in and out, than it did before… either that or there is a vacuum hose of somewhere.

Sounds good!

We need to organise an event at some point – just a cruise somewhere or something simple like that so you guys can show off your cars :D

I am surprised as to how long it takes for the Turbos to spool down after shut the engine off… and how loud they are.

Test drive taken, run nice 8) … steady idle @ 950rpm

As for performance, can't really tell until it's tuned, BUT it feels much quicker than before… revs and makes boost quicker as well… even on part throttle only.

Am looking forward to getting the odds and ends tidied away and having it tuned, my guess is I will need a spare pair of undies in the car at all times wink

Na, take too long to change.

Oh, and got a little shock last night… noticed oil under the very front of the car after the test drive, never been there before… bloody oil filter was loose and I mean wobble loose shrugconfused .
It could have all ended in tears if it had come loose on a trip somewhere swearcensored

We will have to chalk that one up to that flu you had aye.

At least it was found before it caused any serious trouble smile

Let me know where and when you're getting it tuned – I might pop along for a watch if I'm not busy :)

Looking at Tuning in about 3-4 weeks… got a few bits and pieces to tidy up first. Will get Dave to do it.

More goodies to fit cool

1: 4 Bar MAP Sensor… my existing one won't let me go higher than 21psi

2: 3 Port Boost Control Solenoid… The G4 Link ECU uses this to set Boost limits.

3: Crank Trigger Wheel and Sensor… This will replace the factory CAS unit, fitting more powerful valve springs can/does setup harmonics with the CAM Belt causing it to develop a "whip" which in turn has the CAM's turning at varying degrees to the Crank Shaft as evidenced by observing the timing moving all over the place which makes it necessary to run the timing more retarded than is ideal to make good power.
A Crank Trigger Wheel setup like this ensures rock steading timing all the time which means I can run more timing adv. safely = more POWA
