NP man glad I could help out! Epic is definitely a good way to describe it. The owner stopped by today and we began to discuss maybe changing over to utilize the new AEM Infinity system as opposed to stock ECU. There are also a few ramblings in the backround about fender flares

Thanks,

The motor made it into the car today. Here is a quick picture that I took today while Chris was installing it.



I can't wait to see the turbo sitting in the bay. Check back tomorrow for more pictures.

Starting to work on installing the turbo kit and figuring out how to make it all fit in the bay. Since a lot of the components are designed for a stock engine bay, when you start throwing lots of parts at it you end up with some overlap. Nothing a little ingenuity cant take care of though.

Check back for more pictures as we progress.

I think there have been a few with rotated manifolds that have kept their a/c. Piping get close but it's doable on the newer body styles.

Getting ready to crank this thing up. Just filling her up with fluids and we should be good to go. This Joe Gibbs Driven Racing Oil BR-30 is a break in specific oil that we will run for the first 150 miles on the motor.

Stay tuned for more photos and power results in the next week or so.

Red Defi Racer Gauges Installed. This ATI pod is not as nice as the GD clock pod but definitely better than an A-Pillar pod in my personal opinion.



Cosworth, ETS and Tial not a bad combination...

I think you need to push the hoses on all the barb fitting all the way down and use the zip ties on all the lines.

Looks good! I can't wait to see how much it makes on the dyno.

I haven't been a big fan of reversed manifolds due to the loss of A/C (It's hot and humid here in NC during the summers) but I have to say that setup from IAG looks pretty sweet.

Yes we know its possible, but with the Cosworth manifold being o-ringed to the TGV and the cylinder head it would be more difficult to use spacers to clearance everything as they did to make it work with A/C. This is "stage1" for the car as he intends to DD it for a while. We have more ideas in the works though such as an AEM Infinity system.

Thanks,
Alex Goodwin

Here are a few more pics:


We went with a 18x9.5 +38 Work CR KAI Ultimate set-up running a 265 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tire. We will be doing some custom flares in the rear and swapping for the 2011+ front end.


Got it up and running on the dyno to do some break-in tuning and load the engine to help seat the piston rings. The customer is going out of the country for about a month and once he returns we have a few minor tweaks to make and then we will have our final numbers on 93oct, 100oct, and VP Import race gas.

Last steps will be the body work/fender work. We also will be adding a breather tank for the PCV system. Otherwise we are pleased where it sits right now and the customer is very happy with the performance even with a 5500rpm rev limiter during break-in.

Happy to answer any questions for you guys!

Thanks,
Alex Goodwin

Alex,

We followed the Cosworth procedure for their built long blocks. First we broke the camshafts in @ ~2000RPM for 20min w/ no load. Then we loaded it on the dyno at various RPM and load settings for roughly 1hr to help the rings seat. Then the oil was changed from the Joe Gibbs Racing BR30 break-in oil for some conventional 5w30 oil to allow the customer to load a few more miles for us on the street prior to final tuning. It is running wastegate pressure currently which we are using a 1BAR spring combination.

Thanks,
Alex Goodwin

How does using the larger turbo for break in compare to a smaller turbo? What rpm are you taking it to?

Reason for asking, ive seen alot of people use smaller turbos for break in so boost comes in at a lower rpm. Do you think this really matters?

The final step for the Cosworth break-in procedure is essentially a 2minute period of WOT. We were seeing 14.7psi and this was performed at 5700RPM. The current rev limiter is set at 5700RPM's for the customer to complete break-in. Heat cycles are most important for the break-in. Boost isn't going to hurt anything as long as your not trying to break it in at 40psi. The process Cosworth requests you perform to break-in their engines essentially accelerates the process of getting the rings to seat by loading it with boost on the dyno.

Thanks,
Alex Goodwin
