Regarding the lip I would pursue the idea if I were in your shoes seeing as the car does see some serious track time. The underbody spoiler design you've got going will seriously help to reduce underbody flow and improve downforce. If nothing else make it a track only item if you are unsure of the looks (which I rather enjoy by the way). The car is so functional as it sits, the lip would be the perfect addition IMHO. We can all agree that the Corvette does quite well aerodynamically, so here is an inspiration picture for you.

No need for the Q mate, the original will do just fine i think.

The Q is supposed to flow more i belive but the current one has been doing the rounds on drag cars for years. Should cope with my car just fine

Ages ago, so good luck finding another set.

Ive spent the last year sorting all the parts for my build so another few weeks wont hurt.

Cant wait to ditch the 2ltr for a built 2.5.
In that case, send me any 207 parts you have left over. I switched from an ej257 to a ej207 and I'm never looking back. Even if my 2.0 blows up.. I'm just gonna build another one.

Mine is a proper v7 motor with forged pistons too. Just want a big torquey 2.5 mate.

I probably will sell my short motor though but it wouldnt be cost effective for you to buy.

Man, if I had the money, I'd gank that motor from you right quick.

Well the ball is finally rolling...

I picked these little bits up tonight. I left the misc stuff such as the oil/water pumps etc etc at Zaks but here are my new internals ready to be checked cleaned measured and deburred.

I'll make a start next week probably, maybe this week if i get time.

Here we have brand spanking out of the wrapper a (new casting) EJ257 block that has been honed for my 99.5mm Wiseco forged pistons. These will be connected to a set of Carrillos finest A beam rods which in turn will be spinning on ACLs race series bearings.

This lot will be transfering their power to a brand new EJ257 STI crank (Should have arrived today but didnt... tut tut)

I'll leave you to enjoy a few crapy snaps if youre an engine pervert like me

Got about an hour spare today and measured up my bigend bearing thickness and free spreads. Then i weighed and balanced my bearing sets along with my pistons and rod assemblies.

Once i set them up the weights were as follows.

Cyl #1 = 1083.8g
Cyl #2 = 1084.2g
Cyl #3 = 1083.2g
Cyl #4 = 1083.8g

So only 1 grams between the heaviest and lightest set... thats pretty damn good so im happy with that.

Also managed to track down a JDM Spec C long runner intake manifold today which will delete a load of unwanted ****e out of the engine bay and give me more room to run the large intake pipe to the turbocharger.

So all in some nice progress

I'm still going with abandon the idea all together since it doesn't do anything for you functionally. As for the vette, it is a bottom breather and that piece pictured is actually there to direct and draw air into the engine... not anything aero-wise as far as I know. I could be wrong though, as it might have a little to do in directing air away from the wheel wells as well.

So today saw another few little bits towards the build.

I managed to grab some time today to get my big end bearings fitted up in my rods and measured the big end bearings with the liners installed. From here i can measure my crank and work out the running clearances. Unfortunately we're still waiting on my crank from Mark @ Lateral Performance. Once i have the crank, things can really start to move forward.

Another thing ive been hunting high and low for recently is a genuine JDM long runner Spec C intake manifold. These are like rocking horse ****e, and if you are lucky enough to find one, generally people are not willing to sell them.

Here you can see the long runners on the Spec C intake that are much smoother and cleaner than one with TGVs. There are one or two marks on it so im going to either paint it or have it powdercoated, but overall im really chuffed at finding one of these.




So all in, and apart from me being absolutely skinted by the whole project...



its coming together nicely.

Im currently grinding bits off of the inlet .... what a ****e job that is. Hopefully It will give it a smooth look.

Just gotta decide which colour to do it.

Crinkle red? Like OEM?
Crinkle black?
Gloss red?
Gloss black?
Metalic black?
Metalic red?

Or any other paint/powdercoat?

Its gonna be in here, all my hoses are black, fuel reg is black... probably going to paint/powdercoat the APS kit the same as the inlet manifold whichever i decide to do. Or i might lose the APS kit altogether and make a custom one up?

Any thoughts as to colours?

Truth be known i like the red, so i think i'll go with that. Might do the APS in black though.... dunno yet.



Heres what 4 hours with a die grinder on a manifold looks like.



Absolutely **** job to do. Its messy and awkward. Ive removed a few lugs that i wont need and have removed practically every casting mark i can get to. I also cleaned the sharp edges where the manifold runners are cast. This will provide a smooth area for the inlet hose to run along.



Now for some bead blasting, Nitro Moors and then a fresh coat of paint
