Awesome build thread! It's neat to see a car slowly becoming more hardcore over time. Can't wait to see it with the painted bumper on.

I want a solid 450/450 bhp/lbs with useable power a good spread of torque. The car is built for road/track/nurburgring so solid reliability and useable performance are my ultimate goals.

peak bhp and drag runs are of no interest to me to be honest.

Excellent, I think if I would have kept my car i would have went for the same power and performance goals as you did. good luck and keep us posted

Yeah, huge numbers are great for bragging, but they have no place for me. I cat deal with a turbo that doesnt make boost until 5k or a silly peaky powerband.

Hence why im ditching my 2ltr for a fully forged 2.5.

I don't see the reason that you can't compete with those guys, besides...your project hasn't even finished yet

No real updates today...

Although i fitted a brand new set of wheel arch liners today of which i reinforced with 3M fibreglass fabric on the back of the weak areas.

Im also still not happy with how the filter on the APS intake fouls on the charge pipe. After comparing the filter with my previous AEM dryflow ive decided im gonna go back to the dryflow element. Its better constructed than the APS and is dry and not oiled. I much prefer the dry setup to the oiled APS element. Helps prevent MAF failure too.

So i contacted a guy i know that manufactures silicone hoses for the p[rototype car intustry and he is going to make me a bespok hose for me to connect the AEM filter to the APS intake.

The hose will also bend at 45 degrees and mount the filter in a nice big cavaty behind the foglight port hole.

Sweet

Got my intercooler back from the paintshop today, fitted it up and offered up the bumper too. Gotta have the bumper re done as we're not quite happy with the colour, but either way i cant fit it until the towing eye turns up.

Heres my new matt finish gunmetal APS core

Bit of a shame that the colours slightly out on the but its no big deal, it will just be painted again.

Indeed Paulie, its gotta be a big wide useable powerband of big torque. Im hoping to run approx 2 bar of boost through an 3"/8cm FP green.
