donno. I am thinking twin M62s but I am going to fab the kit and then leave it N/A and drive it around like that. If I get the urge for more power then I will do the internals and install the setup. If I don't then I'll just sell it. I am thinking N/A is going to be enough for me if I have the other car to race so it can be stupid fast. I want the lego so get decent MPG so the SC would surly disrupt that unless I can turn them off and on.

I still gotta say, I love those new exhaust tips better.

Also, how do you like those Hankook RS3s?

I like them a lot. I think they aren't to last very long I bet maybe 1 1/2 seasons but for the price they aren't bad. They are pretty quiet too on the street I think their only folly is their performance in the rain but thats what the AWD is for...

So I got a new intake manifold for the Lego that I am going to try out for the last couple events to see if its going to go on a car that I am currently working on for a friend. Going to see if I can get it on and working so I can drive it to WCSS

ITBs anyone?

Pics soon...

Just got back from WCSS 13 and I had a blast. Go to see some old friends and met a bunch of new ones. But now it time to get to bidness...

Legos going in the garage tonight for some ITB goodness. Not sure but for those that went to WCSS the manifold at Maxwells booth is the one going into my car I just brought it along to show off. Going to pick up the last couple parts I need tonight and get started. I will have pics tomorrow.

Okay all Last night I was finally able to get a start on my new manifold start. I got this Mani from a guy online and told him that I would test it at my next 2 Auto X events and if it worked out that I would order a few more for projects I have going in the shop. This is a Tomei replica manifold and I have seen some on ebay but the quality of this one seems to be much better then what I have seen one some of the other ones out there. This could very well be one of the ebay pieces which is exactly why I didn't pay full price for it but at the price I paid it was more then worth it to get it and try it out.

So here are the ITBs themselves. They have much better transition then stock and are ready gasket matched to the lower gasket. As you can see the flanges are sealed with a reusable o-ring type gasket but I added some fujibon just to be sure.



You can also see the new location for the TPS so that plug will need to be extended.



The only thing this came w/o was some sort of modual for the Idle control valve. Now you could tune your car with out this but it would suck so I got a piece that maxwell made to reuse my stock one. Also because the Throttle bodies are at the bottom of the many there are only 4 ports that will go under vacuum so I got a little manifold so I can connect all my ports. The 4 on the sides will be for each cylinder so I will have the full amount of vacuum like the stock mani.



Next is the Mani all cleaned, sealed and assembled. You can see the linkage on the back.





Here is a pic of the rail that comes with the mani. It has the boss for the stock regulator right in rail.

So I got it in the car and there are a few things I am going to need to alter to get it in.







First will be the turbo location. I need to move it about an inch closer to the strut tower to fit the larger intake plenums. I'll do that by cutting the up-pipe and bending it over and re-welding it. The down-pipe has some movement so I shouldn't have to do anything with that.

Second will be some of the wiring as it is in the way of the linkage but that's an easy one.

Third will be the Intercooler pipes. As you can see the new port of the mani is where the AC comp used to be. Also the turbo side pipe will have to be altered to get around the mani and work with its altered location.

Forth will be the wiring. I need to relocated the TPS, the Idle Control Valve, and my AIT pigtails. Should be pretty easy.

Lastly the Oil catch can will have to be moved so I will redo a few of the breather hoses to help with clearance and probably move the catch can to the rear firewall.

So I should have the turbo moved tonight or tomorrow so I can bolt it down and finish the vacuum system and check for leaks in the fuel rails. Once that's done I can finish up and hopefully it fires right up. Then its off to Maxwell to have it checked over because the increased flow should lean me out so it spools up fast I might even put my VF39 back on it. I am also considering running my wastegate into my dp so its a little quieter for the last few months this car is turboed.

More to come.

Willl that manifold work with a TMIC, or are they made for FMIC?

FMIC Only. I am sure you could make something with a but of welding though.

Yeah, probably not worth it...

Intake manifolds and intercoolers are unlimited in Street Prepared, so I can choose non-stock if I want. Will have to talk to Dom.

Hey all. I'll have some pics up tomorrow. Got it all together and it runs pretty rough. I believe the 4 ports behind each ITB I used to small a hose and its not generating enough vacuum for the sensors to read so the car is running pretty rich. I am going to go to the largest size I can fit and see if that fixes it. Idles great so if this is the only issue I should be good to go.

Here are the pics of the finished setup.

Needs to be tuned but I think its going to work well.

itbs and turbo. never seen this before. should be interesting. what the advantages? the boost is closer to the valve meaning better respone. and faster.

Yeah this should increase throttle responce and flow for more top end and maybe some faster spool.

Ran into a couple issues yesterday. Turns out these guys need a little more work. The runners are 48mm each and are machined but the throttle plates look like they were cut and then shaved to fit but they are letting to much air past so we can't drop the idle. So I am going to get them on our CNC and port them out to 49mm and make some new machined throttle plates to get a better seal.

Unfortunetly the Lego is done for the year. I took her off insurence for the winter and this manifold isn't going to see any more action with this car. EZ30R will go in this winter and this manifold is going to go on the track car.

I will have build thread for that car when I get it started but I have a couple other projects I need to finish first so this will be the last update for the Lego for a few months.

Check out my other build threads as they manifest.

Hi Girodisc, I just finished reading your CELARU thread. Very impressive work. I also love to build cars that are outside the box. Current project is a 75 chevy nova body with a fully fabricated chassis, rally style cage and wide 5 stock car hubs with a winters quik-change rear-end. Its destined to gat a twin turbo LS1 with small, extremely fast spooling turbos and a "Nascar" tex 101A road race gearbox. I will soon read this complete thread also and hope to continue to learn from your excellent skills. Steve
