Impressive Arthur!

No worries about the GTR... I have a friend that has 2 of those. He will be coming with us to Trackday this year. You'll can also have a go at our other buddy's new 997 GT3 RS when he takes delivery this April.

We usually do most of our car trackdays in April/May before our motorbike trackdays take over in June.

Good Luck on the build can wait to see it in action.

Wow, cool build. I am very interested in the project and look forward to sometime getting to meet you and your car. I am switching my current plans from a track/tarmac setup to a rally build. After seeing the last engine and imagining the plans with the new one you are building and tuning, I am pretty happy with my decision to hit the gravel!

PM me if you ever need a hand and there aren't any around.

It has the same physical dimensions as a GT40R but only flows like 3lb more than a GT3582R

Haha. There are 2 dump tubes. The V-band from my turbo to DP was leaking a while ago and never really bothered to fix it.

Sweet. I wonder how the old 996 turbo compares in speed to the 997 GT3 RS

Some photos for you guys. Swapped the heads. Got it all timed up. Just have to take the flywheel off, get it resurfaced, change the rear main seal, put the oil pan back on, put the turbo stuff on, intake manifold stuff and wiring harness then put the motor back in.

Also finally got the Vi-Pec working... 2 wires were mis-labeled on their wiring diagram so the DBW throttle plate wouldn't calibrate properly...

How did you manage to tighten the cam gear pulley ??
W/o the special tool it seems to be quite a biznatch IMO


I was able to make a tool for the crank pulley bolt but gave up with the cams

Yeah those cam gears are a serious bitch.

I tighten them by using an old timing belt wrapping around the whole cam and back to the crankshaft sprocket. Then use a lot of clamps to hold it in place to prevent it from slipping then I get the 10mm hex and tighten it down. Sometimes it slips but if you're doing it right it won't.

Oh and I have a big breaker bar shoved between the flywheel and engine stand so it can't turn.

thats how ive done it too. its easier with two people. one to grip the old timing belt with some big channel lock pliers, one to torque the camgear down.

^I got it from a fellow Nasioc member. You can pick them up from Cam Koole @ Lightspeed Innovations in Red Deer, Alberta directly if you want. They're about $2400 CAD +tax for the wire-in version.

Oh and I finally got the car running. Motor is so much louder than before! Valve train noise I guess.... not to mention the exhaust is like even louder. Guess it's all from the big port heads.

Was street tuning it for a bit today before the dyno tune and played with the rotational/cyclic idle/cool down function which is part of the anti-lag.

Here it is:

Switches on the anti-lag. Once I rev over 4000rpm and throttle position is over 80% anti-lag is enabled. Below 4000rpm for 5s or more turns it off again.

Could we have a nice HD vid to demostrate how it really works on anti-lag?

I'll have one after the dyno tune. Don't want to rev it too high/boost too high right now.

Should be pretty much like this after though:
