Max that would be the understatement of the year, i'd hate to add up the hrs so far but hey its finaly starting to look like a race car.

and some good news weighed it tonite and was plesantly supprised, as it sits in those last pics 456kg,with a weight bias of 45% fr and 55%rear, it should handle reasonably well.
so my aim of a completed car under 600kg is a very real posibility,
now if i could only get 600hp, oh Sh#Thang on

Thanks guys , appreciate the support, one small problem i will be facing soon , some of you may have picked up , and that is i will need to reverse the intake manifold to face forwards, i havnt as yet tried to see if it will swap around but if it wont i will have to build a new one, any one have any ideas on a good setup, the throttle bodies will have to angle up over the Alternator as intake will be under roll bar beside my head.

there's a company that does eg33 prep for aircraft down in your part of the world. They have an intake mani that I think can do what you need.

As for the throttlebody - since you have some room to play with why even bother putting on either end? Just put it right on top of the plenum.

very much what i'm thinking/wondering about.


modifying a street-designed AWD transmission to work in a 2wd racecar just doesn't seem like the best idea to me. i'm curious how you arrived at the decision to run the gearbox that you're running..

Andrew , mate a very easy and simple answer, MONEY, the box i have in there is one that came out of a Saker, its a 2wd box with a close ratio set and slippery diff installed and cost me $500 after a freshen up with new bearings and syncros,
I would dearly love to have a quaife sequential, Ricardo etc in there, but unless i can attract some sponsership its out of the question on my budget. but please feel free to jump on board , i,m positive i'm onto a very quick car with this project, and one that will be a fraction of the price of a Juno or Nemisis etc that it will be competing against, but for some strange reason i cant seem to raise any interest down here whatsoever, pity, so they will all get one helluva shock i hope when it hits the track.


I have solved the inlet manifold problem , oh how i love japanese enginering, just simply turn it around



also gave me the opportunity to get rid of excess emision plumbing, i will have to remount the alternator but thats no problem




cheers John

thanks Parkes, i overlayed the set up with the rear body drawings and it fits under the orig body line perfectly, bonus,
a question for you though if i may.
while i had the manifold off i spotted a vacume operated butterfly that is normaly open , that allows both inlet runners to equalize, what would be the best option for me, close it off or leave it open.
regards John

it means i will have to fabricate new engine mounts , but was going to have to do that anyway as they differ slightly from the EJ mount pattern.
and as i have changed from a 4wd box to a 2wd box which has a smaller rear housing, [no extra diff] i had to re engineer the rear mount to one at the rear of the box, instead of the two , one on each side as for the 4wd box.



the only concern is i now have approx 4 deg of angle on my half shafts but from what i've heard that shouldn't pose to much of a problem.



any thoughts
Cheers John

i dont knwo if that angle is too much but i do know that you dont want U jiont perfectly straight you do want some of an angle on them

John,
What you've found is the IRIS valve that Subaru designed into the intake to provide a dual plane design based on engine vacuum. Given what you're setting out to do, you might just want to remove it and tune.

Thanks mate will do, mabe i should start a new thread on a body rebuild, mine, lol apprantley they can do wonders with stainless steel these days, there going to overhaul my hip, got a bit to much play in it, i suggested some rose joints and the doc looked at me with a strange puzzeled look, dunno why.
but the guys that bought the car have access to everything they need and have the expertise, so it should take shape very soon.
cheers John

I would agree. Since most of the time it'll be at high RPM with that motor just ditch it.

when do you go in for the new suspension joint?
