Default My small aussie build

So fellas, just thought i'd make a small write up of what I am doing so far. I am not going nuts with this thing as I cant afford to as I am still in Uni till end of this year so plan is to use the stock engine but support it to make 350+ awkw

Currently:

Unknown turbos, 450cc injectors and a walbro fuel pump, straight pipe 3' exhaust, thats pretty much it. Need to fix radiator thermos as new radiator i installed doesnt have bungs for temp sensors therefor my thermos arent coming on. Also need to do all engine mounts whilst I am doing my turbos.

Build:

Just got my IPS 19ts in the mail the other day, looks pretty swag, but I need to get a clip on the turbine wheel done if I am to push them past 370awkw, so looking to do that sometime soon, Anyone know a good place in melbourne to get this done?

I am completely lost about injectors as I need more than 550cc but less than 680 and its hard to find anything in between, so i'll prob go the the 680s.

Also been tossing and turning in my sleep between an Emanage Ultimate and ARC2, As much as I would love the simplicity of an Arc2, not knowing exactly where my fuel curve is and having timing control kind bugs me so most likely go with an EMU now.

Still trying to sort out my FPR as well, hopefullly can get ROB Beck to make up another adapter for me and stick in a AEM 303

Got the Walbro 255 already in so will need to highflow it

Now the interesting part with my downpipe is its stock, I hate the way the rear turbo enters at 90degress so am thinking about getting it custom fabbed whilst am getting the o2 bung for the wideband installed. Hopefully I can get them to fab it up so it enters at a better angle to the front turbo exhaust stream.

Wideband o2- absolute necessity if your doing any kind of build and running decent power

Still undecided on clutch, hopefully an RPS Max street full face clutch with pp should be able to hold my power, havent bought one yet.

I bought another 5spd getrag box and just waiting for it to be delivered, will probably fix that one up and put it in. My current box is crunching pretty bad.

Well thats about it at the moment, will update as I buy and install things on the way. In a bit of a buying frenzy at the moment cos my target date for the build is mid-July

Hey mate, I had the same problem as you in regards to radiator not having the extra bung for the temp sensor. I got a $30 adaptor from super cheap, took it down to an engineering joint with my spare temp sensor where they tapped in a new thread. installed it and works a fkn treat without any modifications needed to the wiring. Give that a shot hombre!

lol thats exactly what I was thinking of doing, good to know its the right thing to do though, thanx dude

One question though, if your talking about the same adapter as I think you are, there is only enough space for 1 temp sensor, but our cars had two, how did you get around this?

Cheers

Well the radiator only had one bung but originally had 2 temp senders. So one went in the bottom of the radiator, the other I cut the hose close to the bottom and inserted the adaptor there. I can get a picture tomorrow if you like lol

Default Re: My small aussie build

lol, thats my problem, my stooopid radiator has no bungs, pics would be much appreciated

Also considering the possibility of running e85, probably would need a second walbro and atleast 750cc injectors in this case. I am pretty convinced now to run an EMU so this takes care of the problem of running large injectors with an ARC2. Really dont want to go to the hassle or expense of replacing hard fuel lines and spoke to a few guys who are making 600awhp+ with stock lines so am going to give this a go first. Sticking a second walbro into my sender is going to be a PITA though, as well as figuring out how to merge the two and still connect to stock lines, like I said (Uni student on a budget with minimal time and money). Dont really have the dosh to pay $1k for a dual feed kit from 3sx, that money would rather be invested in my bottom end or even bigger turbos

If anyone has any ideas on how to setup dual walbros to stock hard line, your more than welcome to chime in

Maddy
