My GT42R st185 project

Talk about your project car here

Postby tjdouble07 » Mon May 12, 2008 6:19 pm

LOL! OK, I got the car back from the shop who did my roll cage last Thursday. As of now, I am completing pulling out my old motor tonight to make way for my new, stronger built motor. I just need to get everything balanced with my new motor, before I slap everything together and bolt it up. Oh, and I've got a pretty slick CDI setup to run with my new Hyra 2.6, along with lots of new goodies (complete new engine wiring harness, new shift cables, shorter throttle cable, etc, etc....). I would post pics, but I think the visual impact of showing it all complete would be cooler, along with maybe some AWD Mustang Dyno results to go with it. Also, I've decided to do only an E85 (actually E70, in Utah) tune this year, and see what I can do with that. A local guy with a 4g63 is making more power with 9 psi less boost then he made last year on C16 on his GT42r setup, so it sounds promising...

I will try to get everything complete ASAP so I can finally show you guys some pics of this beast!

Stay tuned...

:D

OK, OK... The turbo/twin scroll manifold setup/4" exhaust/3" IC piping/custom coolant system is done, the cage is in, motor is done, the suspension is done, the fuel system is 90 % done (will be completed tomorrow), the wiring is getting finished up and the new motor should be in tomorrow or Thursday... By chance does anyone want to see some pics, or should I wait till it's all running and tuned? Maybe I'll at least wait till Friday when the car is ready to start... 8)

OK, here are a few pics of the motor before I finished throwing it together. The first is after installing the pistons into the block and after decking/lapping the block (with my freshly purchased lapmaster lapping plate) in preparation for my new Phuzion Cometic head gasket.

Image

Here is my head, after polishing the combustion chambers/installing new SS oversized valves and milling/lapping the gasket mating surface. (before I threw it in the washer, it was VERY shinny. 8) )

Image

Here are a few pics of the motor fully assembled, before I threw the tranny on today. Figured I better get a few pics of the twin plate clutch before it is hidden forever!

Here you can see my A/C deletion...

I have pics of the turbo setup when we were mocking it up, but now that everything is completed/polished/coated, I'm gonna hold off posting pics of that stuff untill it's installed on Friday. I might take some pics of the interior tomorrow and show you guys the new cage/seats/interior. The guy who did my cage did an awesome job!

Sorry for the delay guys. This has been a very time consuming, slow going project, although I've been working on this stupid thing every night/weekend for the past 5-6 months! At least it's finally almost done.

More pics and updates to come.

Great work dude!


Did you purchase a new OEM wiring harness? It looks great!

Thanks guys. And yep, its a new engine harness. Along with all new connectors/cables for the engine bay, new shift cables, new bushings, new (short) throttle cable, etc, etc. And the valve cover in the picture is my old one. I'm currently getting some AN fittings welded on to another valve cover for my new pretty slick PCV system, and will have it freshly powercoated to match my old one...

Hopefully I get most everything put together under the hood by Friday, and will take some more pics then...
