Default The li'l 780 project of '09

If any link is broken, please let me know, until then please go to my PhotoBucket 780 Project Page

My 780 headlamp mod thread My Mod Thread


Started the project last year actually just gathering parts. Started putting it all together the middle of June. Lots of setbacks (oh, so many setbacks) Rain mostly.

I'm just hoping for somewhere in the area of 250-275HP. Nothing extreme, just drivable enjoyment.

If anyone has suggestions, I'd like to hear them.

Now, if I can just finish the projector lamps...

Basic updates:

Rear Sway Bar Install

Painting

New Grille

S.A.M. Strut Tower Brace

Side Marker Install

AC condenser fan ALA Mr. Bill

RSI stage 1 cam with RSI adjustable cam sprocket currently @ -2°.

New front cam belt cover. (Mine disintegrated into dust, literally)

"New" Turbo T3 .48 A/R I bought about 10 years ago, but only used for a summer.

Ported 90+

Mikes Chips (Injection & ignition)

4 flow matched 52#/576cc model INJL55 injectors from Racetronix

External CBV (Forge)

3" intake

3" 012 AMM

Airaid AA720-431 air filter http://www.airaidsales.com/AirAid-Un...ters-PRD9.aspx Tucked up behind the bumper
under the passenger side headlamp.

ATP UIWG Ultimate Internal Waste Gate (3" outlet)

NPR Intercooler

Volvo 2 speed electric fan mounted in the stock mechanical fan shroud with 2-speed relay. Low speed side in the radiator using the
"over heat" port. High speed control will be in the upper radiator hose.

3" turbo back exhaust custom made and installed by EurodesignMK with Magnaflow muffler and CAT.

VDO OIL 80PSI pressure gauge and sender.

VDO Oil temperature gauge. Sensor will be installed in the big assed banjo bolt for the oil filter relocation arm.

AEM Wideband

G-Valve

2 filters, yes.

The issue I'm having is dialing in the right boost. I think the G-valve may have had it as a little loose makes almost no boost, a little tight & it blows hoses off.

Better hoses than HG though, eh?

I'm intrigued! What's the advantage of this? Where'd you get the kit to run that?

It adds about a quart of extra oil capacity without the need of a deeper sump or expensive pan. Also better filtration.

This. Also, I'd rather *not* crawl under the car to change them out. I simply unbolt it from the bracket, hold them over a bucket & remove one at a time. I don't replace both of them. If I could, I'd install one of those remote oil pan bungs. Though I haven't seen them in a while.

If I wanted to get sick about it, I could get the bigger 3001 filters which are even bigger.

Or even still, we have Caterpillar filters here at work that are 14" long with the same base. But that's way WAY overkill.

No, someone I work with accused me of driving a girly car.

Mind you, this guy drove a Honda mini van.
