Out with the old, and in with the new.

Recommended Posts

You're welcome to check it out anytime you would like, working on it or not. What kits are you looking at?  I should be done with the turbo install tomorrow, and will probably be driving it around next weekend a bunch.  If I'm up in your area I can swing by your place.  Speaking of new turbo....  Here's a sneak peak pic of the progress.

You planning on coming to the del mar/56 freeway area? If not I can swing by whenever you've got time, I would come by today but I am currently on the tail end of a drive from SLO and I don't think I'm gonna feel like going to el cajon when I get home, let alone much of anywhere. I'm off Tuesday and Wednesday if you're gonna be around either of those days as well

 

As far as kits, I'd love a Type 65 But I have a suspicion ill end up with a roadster due to my size, but that's why I want to stare at your car again, I want to see if there's any room for frame/ aluminum mods to get my fat ass to fit any better,

Fuzzy ~ There's also the new 818 which promises to be the most wookie friendly car they've ever designed. Also is overall a killer philosophy build imo. Might be the biggest hit ever in the kit car world on their hands, but time will tell.

SQ, If i could have upgraded the twins easily I would have, but there just wasn't enough space around where the turbos sat to accommodate a physically larger turbo.  what turbos are you going with?  Hows the motor doing? I remember a while back to did a little damage to it, any updates on that thing? If you know of anyone interested in my old twin set up, let me know! :wink:

I'm going to be running dual precision mfs-6152e t4 .58ar. It should spool pretty quick if I did my homework right. I hope to make atleast the same power as before but from 3k to 6500. I made 577whp on just one sc6152 t3 in my integra. I hear the billet mfs wheel is better than the old cast sc wheel but not as good as the cea wheel. The 2cea's were out of my price range. The 6.0 is going back together now. I had gone to a stock 150k 5.3l junkyard engine last season and it took a lot of abuse. 770whp to be exact lol. But came to an end while crusing on the freeway. Having pulled it apart but its making a floping noise.

 

i will pass the word around on your turbo's

The new set up looks good! Should be a monster,(again)  I think my S475 on my Datsun spooled just as bad as your S480.  Because I only had a 4.8L in mine. Haha. 

 

Little update on the coupe...  Took it out to the track on the GT42, Managed to get a best of 6.7 @ 105mph 1.4 60ft. it was at roughly 14psi of boost, with some 110 leaded gas. I feel like it should be faster then that,  just in comparing it to the Z. But it was only my first time out with the new turbo so there is plenty of room for improvement.

I've got a few updates on the car, and a couple pics,   but no videos just yet... I've taken it to the track again 1 time since the last post and managed to get a 6.6 @ 106.  Same 1.4 60 ft.   This time though, the car is pulling the front wheels off the ground.  I would feel the front end slam down a moment after launching and had no idea what it was. Then after talking to one of the tech guys there, He mentioned that the car was pulling wheelies. Shows how observant I am. :-D   Also, I got tired of having to buy race gas for the car every time I wanted to take it out to the track so I designed a new fuel system for it...

this guy and his "new" fuel system :P ... more like secondary boost referenced fuel system that takes over spraying whatever fuel you choose, so regular fuel out of boost and race gas in boost ...think NRE (Nelson Racing Engines) :o !

Which is what I plan to do with E85 since it's less than $2 a gallon locally, which is cheaper than I'll ever find race gas... I think if it were better documented more people would go that route. Hopefully I can work to change that. :-D
