Image
Image

just got back from having the car maped and here is the result



Image
Image

Image

at the wheels
Image


so pritty happy with at for now, next job is to save and get me nice big turbo and injectors to go with it, then 380-400bhp here we come :)


air fuel and boost
Image

power graff
Image

full forged engine , 540cc injectors ct20b JUN264cams but not set up yet, full 3" exhaust and decat, HKS airfilter and with no air flow meter now, and was runing just over 1.1bar, the full spec if the engine is on the first page of the build

just finished making and fitting my cold air feed box, here as sum pics

first I made a cardboard template of the cold air box


Image
Image
Image



then after I had coverer it on fibreglass resin I then raped it in heat reflective shield
Image
Image
Image



then fitted to the car with a cold air piping going in to the box
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
not shore weather to fit a lid on it as it is a good fit to the liner under the bonnet which is acting like a lid plus I and benefiting from the vent on the top.

what do you think?

Holy crap that is a long post.. but so much eye candy! Great looking build; I love the rally lights and oil filter relocation job. Also neat paint on the rear half there... haven't seen that before.

Pretty dang 8) 8) man!

just a bit of an update, I went back to Weston performance today to get the map looked at and they found it to be over fuelling lots :( but the good news is that they have now remapped it and it is pushing 353bhp and 300ft/lbs of torque at the fly wheel :twisted: :twisted: and all this power gains is from having an alternator that works :)

Awesome job man.

How much faster does the car feel over stock? My HP goal is right where your sitting so I'm just wondering how it feels. Easy to drive around on the street?
