I'm tired. Quick update for now:

Tranny flush, IPD 25/22 sways, alignment, and 94whp and 106wtrq.

Plans are to stick a cone on the end of the AMM for now, with the eventual setup being a cone near the stock airbox location, boxed from the engine heat. Exhaust of some sort, and an E-Fan. m47... Yeah.

kyle, you definetly need something to help breathing up top....i think a well thought out 2.5" catback is just the ticket. try to get pat or peter to part with a b230 header also, that would make even more improvement.

i'm really surprised (well, that's not the right word) at how well that cam holds tq up high, and also holds hp past 5500! really a nice improvment over even my VX characteristics:



notice your torque never gets as high as mine (auto?), but still manages to stay well above 100lb-ft from before the graph starts (i mean, i would imagine...) until right about 4950rpm, while mine dips down below 100lb-ft at around 4250rpm. Also, your horsepower, in addition to being 6hp higher than mine at peak, blows it's shape and duration out of the water. my horsepower is above 80 (aka 10/11ths of peak)from about 4250rpm until redline, peaking at about 5300rpm, while yours is above 80hp from 4100rpm-redline, but is also above 90hp from 4500rpm-5650rpm! that's just insane

must be really fun to drive also, can't wait to see how you love a manual in there

i think you're knocking on the door of at least 115hp no problem with the efan, exhuast setup, m47, and CAI

Kyle, lol, no joke! I'll be turbo too though, no worries. I've been talking to people about gathering more of my turbo stuff, and it just makes me want to do the +T sooner and sooner!!!!!!!!! ARGH! I was even considering doing the +T before the tranny swap... The only thing that is making me rethink that is the exhaust. Maybe I'll just get a 2.5 catback for my NA, and use that for my +T as well, but with a 3" dp and cat... That way I can continue with the NA tuning for a bit, and see where it all gets me before I do the +T.

Man, the fact that my pull doesn't really start until that late in the RPM is really throwing my perspective off... I was thinking the HP and TRQ REALLY dive off hardcore at the top. I really want to know how much the eFan, cone(not necessarily cold, but it's all good), exhaust, and tranny get me. I'd love to do them one at a time and dyno in between, but I don't really think I want to spend THAT much... We'll see!

Yeah, Fred put together a spreadsheet with some information on most of the available OHV Redblock cams. Here ya go Paul: http://forums.turbobricks.com/showth...ight=cam+table

I want something more aggressive when I go turbo... Granted I'll have a manual tranny then, so I don't have to worry about the lower rpm so much.

Not too much new on the car yet... I did some damage though... :( Destroyed the front suspension and right front wheel. Well, I can probably get the wheel repaired, but it's got a nice dent in it. More on that later when we tear into it, and pictures as well.

I'll be putting on new ball joints, strut mounts, motor mounts, tranny mount, poly control arm bushings, oil pan, different steering rack, control arms, and subframe(fukked them all up), got a couple of REAL Virgos to replace the IPD ones on the front for now, SS brake lines all around and GT-LMA brake fluid. I think I'll finally get around to installing that lower chassis brace as well...

As far as M47 swap goes, I'll be getting a stock pressure plate and disc with very low mileage on them, but I still don't think I'll be doing this anytime soon. Turbo addition will definitely be first. I'm getting an intercooler and the turbo this Sunday, and then I already paid for the computers, injectors, resistor pack, and a turbo fuel pump(don't think I need to use this, and probably won't until I have reason to do otherwise), so I'm just waiting for them to be shipped. Even once I have all this, I won't get around to doing it because I don't have an exhaust, and I want an exhaust. A good one. From the start.

Peace!

I want to see pics of the damage! Did you have a camera handy right after the, err, incident? BTW, spousal unit is beginning to ask about when she can have the lawn back! I'll hold her off for awhile longer but we'll need to find a home for the blue (or is it green?) box sooner or later. Sounds like you're getting some in depth suspension knowledge...

haha, kyle, that's one of my reasons for not having a completed +T yet !

sucks to hear about the destruction...now's your chance to make it better than it was before, i'm sure it will come out just fine.

also, you might wanna think about doing a single walbro in tank 255LPH high pressure pump, and maybe selling the turbo pump instead. they are usually under $100 from places online and pretty easy to install also. gives you some headroom when you start to turn the wick up

Yeah, I've given it some light thought, but I'm not sure... I'll be hanging around lower boost levels(well, low enough, 8-12psi), starting at the lower levels and working my way up. We'll see how long it's been before I get an exhaust, and how much other money I have... Lol.

I don't get it, how's that working out for you? My V15's wayyyy better than your K... For an auto anyway, not sure about top power so much, I haven't seen any dyno sheets with one installed.

Anywho, I got my 240 style intercooler and my 13C yesterday... 2.4T computers, 804 greentops, resistor pack, 2.4 flywheel, clutch and pressure plate, and turbo fuel pump should be in the mail from the east coast any day now... Intercooler pipes will be on their way as well soon.

Then, it'll be the multiple month wait for some real, turbo back 3" mandrel bent exhaust... In the meantime I'll have to get the manifold and turbo ported, gotta make the most of the little thing!

Also, I might be swapping over to some Multi-x Bertone wheels... Put them up next to my car on Saturday, and it was SICK looking!

I'm waiting on my tax return before I start ordering the parts for my front end rebuild... And then also, my car's blowing the power window fuse randomly...!?

So I got my federal tax return... Ordered some of the stuff needed for the front end fix. Just waiting on someone to pay me for my last ebay auction before I order some poly control arm bushings from Dale. SS brake lines should be at the V Shop already I think... I need to pick up a plastic wheel well liner for the right front as well.

Now, I need to decide if I want to tap a nice deep hole in the block or weld a bung onto the replacement oil pan, while it's off, for the turbo oil drain...

My poor baby wants an oil change... It's been over 5k now... Mobil 1 and Mann though, so I'm not tooo worried. Also, it's been leaking a bit, and I burned a bit(when I did Seafoam again recently), so I've added a quart.

Anywho, just transfered some money to my paypal account so I can send money to the crank scraper guy and Dale... Strut mounts, oil pan gasket and some brake lines for my 142 have arrived. Just need to tell my boss to order the remaining things and he should be able to have them within the day I think... Still need to go to the shop and clean up/disassemble the "new" suspension though.

Here's the news... I swapped over to a 25mm rear bar from my 22mm bar... It feels sooooo much better. More neutral, and more planted. The rear end used to roll a good bit more, felt less stable... Now, when going around those tight hairpins in the hills and stuff, like 15mph ones, it barely pics up the inside rear tire! Not quite what I was expecting, but boy do I like it.

I'm supposed to have pictures right now, but someone's slacking on the emailing of them to me...

Anywho, not toooooo much going on over here. Yesterday I washed it and took some pictures. A few weeks ago I washed it and took pics as well, but then I accidentally deleted the pictures before I uploaded them!!! Damnit. I still don't have any clean, lowered pictures yet. Oh well, these upcoming ones will be well worth the wait.

While cleaning the car, I found that I suffer from some oxidation. I'm not sure if I'm going to worry about it and wax/polish it, or just wait until I get it buffed and de-striped and de-badged. If I get it debadged. Still not decided on that yet.

New news:
I cut off the rear muffler a couple weekends ago after hearing Jordan's(valvesprung) 245 with the same setup. It sounded damn sweet, although a bit loud. So, anyway, I did it, and am VERY pleased with it. It's definitely loud, but it's not going to get me pulled over, and it doesn't resonate too annoyingly. I put a nice and dirt cheap flex pipe on it that exits right behind the pass. side mudflap. You can see it in the pictures that'll be coming. I should paint it flat/matte black though so it blends in more and doesn't rust too bad. I like the performance, sound, and mileage increase I've gotten from it.

Poly control arm bushings, torque rod bushings, strut mounts, ball joints, tie rod end, replacement rack and subframe, replacement oil pan with O2 bung welded in for turbo oil return, motor and tranny mounts, 2 coil cut front springs, 2 coil cut wagon rear springs, and a crank scraper going in next weekend(not this one, but the next). Then, I'm going to drag race it. And have a sh!tload of fun.

When I drag race it I'm planning on doing tons of runs, trying out different things to see what's fastest, and just to have some things to compare and post up for everyone to learn from.

BTW, that rear 25mm swaybar? OMG I love it soooo much. If my car handles like this, with maaaaad toe in, too low front suspension with the geometry all thrown off, 185/70 oooooold crappy tires, bent subframe, old bushings, I can't IMAGINE what it's going to be like with proper tires, and all the other new stuff. Seriously. It's NUTS!!!

I LOVE IT!!!

Fawk man. Just because it IS doesn't mean you have to TELL everyone. Jeez. It's a temp exhaust, it was free, and it improved my gas mileage, so I'll let it go until my other "muffler" and full exhaust goes on. The tethy's will remove most of it's ricer status as well(currently has sh!tty flat black steelies while my suspension's F'd up). We'll see how much of a ricer it is when we go to the track. (not that it'll be fast, but something decent is something decent)
