Default Having an OMG moment...

Read all of this and have to say, "great job guys"!
I see you are not very active on IWSTI. That is where I have my journal. This is the post of my build. I am currently at 400/400 with a relatively stock motor, 24 pounds of boost on 100 octane (Torco fortified) gas, and a Blouch 2.5XTR. This is in my track car.
I'm building a complete, new motor...
BW's calculator had me up around 500 whp and I couldn't believe it. Now I do!
I'm about to put the engine together and EFI Logics will tune it. I will be running Speed Density. I have the same twin-scroll headers. I sure hope I can make decent power on the low end; though I will have a 7500 redline...
Several things surprise me. It is hard to believe you can do this on the injectors you use. Second is the pump. Are these max'ed out?

Going for a retune this Wed with Hill at Agile. Looking forward too meeting him and the staff as I have heard many good things. I'm going in for not so much a retune but a better tune. Down low it feels great but not holding boost up top. It is highly annoying to tell you the truth. There are also stalling issues. I just know there is more in this set up than I am getting out of it. Granted after doing such a large build there are always hiccups on the way. Hoping third time is a charm here! I will post results and any info from the tune!

What EBCS are you using? Everybody who has posted problems with the IWG model holding boost appear to all be using something other than the B-W supplied EBCS. I added another 2 psi this weekend and while that only puts me at 17 psi, boost is flat as hell all the way to redline. I'm using the B-W EBCS btw.

oh man, i wish you were getting tuned at IAG this weekend instead so we could have two twinscroll EFR subies getting done. jorge did a great job on my last tune and i am looking forward to what he can do on the 7670 this time around. would have been great to meet you and see the car as well. oh well, maybe next time! are you going to OCAWD?

Kelly..I'm using the high boost actuator internals on the fullrace setup...should be good up to 40lbs. However I'm bringing along a hallman manual boost controller just in case.

Monki...meant to pm you. I know you are down that way. Ha. Well good luck. But yeah I will be at the ocmd meet. I have a spot in the show with my friends at FAST. I'll see you there!

So gnarly man! The full-race twin scroll set-up is the one I've had my eye for when I graduate college! Full-race is local to my area.

I'm using the high boost canister also, I was wondering what solenoid you are using.

The BCS that looks like the prodrive solenoid? Its not a MAC solenoid like the Perrin or Grimmspeed unit but small right? How much preload do you have on the WG canister?

Hey coop, I am wondering if you would do anything different with your build? I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a similar build and wanted to be sure I don't overlook anything. I was checking out your car the other day and I have to say that thing is sick! How much did you spend on powder coating? I need to sit down with Dave and go over the build and decide if I want to use my motor or pickup a new block. Thanks

As I am also! I'm about to put it together! My build will be very, very similar, as noted above.
Same FR exhaust and a modified, reversed N/A RS intake. DVACS heads that flowed 284/219 at Kelford 220-C cam's max lift. Speed Density tuning...
Anything you learned from this build that might help us?

Sorry for the late response here. I'm in a difficult spot because as you know I went in to agile for a tune only to find that after a compression test that #4 is 110 Hill was fantastic and very helpful nonetheless even with this bad news. I can only hope it is something lite but fear a ring land went. I cannot make assumptions but fear I had a bad prior tune. I was spiking at about 28lbs when target was 22. Currently the car is with Fast Auto and Dave will be doing a leak down test asap. So what would I do different with this setup?.....I can't answer that right now. Will keep you posted...Again big thanks to Hill at Agile and Dave and crew for all help and time put in to this project. Fingers crossed.

Coop, that's a drag to hear this Hope fully it's not bad even if it's a ringland and maybe easy to repair! Have you seen any oil in your coolant overflow?

That blows. I've done compression test on mine @ 500, 1000, and 3000 miles and from the start I've been 125, 145,145,150. I"m about to do another today to see if anything miraculously got better but I'm not banking on it. Even with the **** compression the car runs pretty well. What's you plan of action now?


Cylinder #1 is my low one

Kelly...Yea car feels great for 375whp on 3 1/2 cylinders lol. I really don't know the plan of action is now...to be honest its becoming very frustrating.

Manitou...no. I have not seen any oil in coolant tank.

A bad ring land on Manley forged piston?

If it doesn't smoke, burn oil, or push coolant. Run it as it is until it stops running if is running well.

Sorry to hear this. Was fuel cut not enabled? Sometimes it reacts too slowly.
I would urge you to get a turboxs knock lite or something similar. It won't guarantee anything, but it can sometimes give enough "please lift" warning.

I hope it's something minor.
