Default AR Fabrication- 42r bugeye

I was just up at AR fab yesterday tuning a car and Howard and Tommy had the shop drag car on the dyno.

730whpat 33 psi
it spun the tires at 40psi but made 730lbs of tq hp should have been over 800 he's going to try to bring the car down here to fatalville next weekend to run it on our dyno then hit the strip!

Car is insane. Oh BTW its a 2.0l wrx motor Woot!

love to see what kind of bumper goes on that thing, there sure is alot going on there. Dual intakes, everything in the front. Good power though. 730 ftlbs is insane too. Good luck with it.

This should be quite impressive to see...as I've always been a bigger fan of the EJ20 and not so much the EJ25, glad to see it doing well.

Sweet Jesus. Just look at the amount of condensation out of the BOV when it purges.

This thing is actually a SOB to work on in a sheet metal chassis! It is not supposed to be this clustered nor is it supposed to have a FMIC / Radiator / couplers...LOL

In the Tube chassis there are nice mounting points for the coil packs, dry sump tank and an ICE CHEST IC...The main engine runs on Methanol so a radiator is not needed...and we are using the Hargett IC clamps but I did not want to waste the rest of my clamps on this setup.


The BOV also has too much spring pressure since the cams produce nearly no vacuum so you hear the turbo surging after the initial BOV opening then it stays shut.

This engine is actually a 2.0L block that is sleeved with our 100mm pistons, a stock 2.5L crank, stock ported heads with +.5mm valves, a very nasty set of cams and a set of EAGLE(ARP 2000 rod bolts...the standard bolts) rods FTW!!!

The main engine is a new 2.5L casting that is sleeved with a set of 4.0" bore custom flat top (11.6:1) pistons, Billet 79mm crank, a set of our Big port heads with STD Intakes and +2.5mm Exhaust Super alloy valves, another set of one off cams from Kevin @ Kelford, JUN cam gears and another set of EAGLE rods with CA625 bolts

Yea...almost forgot... I will never ever use an electric fuel pump ever again!!! On the back of the drysump pump is a Weldons mechanical fuel pump and this thing is the best! At 4000rpm pump shaft speed it puts out over 7GPM of fuel!

More to come!

Howard

I have often wondered why no one has been more creative with thier turbo placement.

WELL DONE

Good luck getting it to hook

The hooking up is not the problem...its the destruction that happens after the launch. Regardless of how well we were able to make Eggums Civic(the Fastest FWD Honda) hook it still broke something in her gearbox every few passes or so.... but 1.1X-1.2X 60fts will do that to a gearbox without any kind of slippage.

This car uses the same boost control setup used in her car....multiple stages of timed boost increases and a launch control feature that helps with the initial boost hit on the launch.

This is our second brand new 6mt/PPG gearset.... The first one broke the input shaft and a few of the gears on a 3-4 shift along with the rear end and left axle...I was dropping the car off to my wedding Venue the night before the ceremonies so the wife and I could leave in it after being wed... OOOPS! LOL

AndrewTech and PPG stepped up and replaced it for us!

Almost nothing on this car has been left stock except for sheetmetal and glass... even the suspension is fabricated which BTW unbolts and bolts onto the tube chassis.
