MXP's ST165

Postby MXP_57 » Thu Dec 02, 2010 7:15 am

Hi everyone.

I thought i'd post some pics of my setup. I've been working on it for over 4 years now. It's almost the end of the project. I've done 98% of the work myself. (the rest is machining shop lol)

I've been very busy with CEIKA for the last year, and going overseas a lot so it hasn't progressed but i will have some time and all the bits finished soon hopefully.

It's a 1987 JDM st165 #1587 out of 2500. 130000kms on the chassis.

I've rebuilt my 1st gen 3sgte to stock specs + ARP head studs (new OEM pistons, head gasket etc..). The engine is 5000kms old.

It started as a personal project, but it's gone too far so i will be using it as a demo car for my company CEIKA (http://ceikaperformance.com)

ENGINE/TRANS:

- GT35 turbo oil cooled, 0.63 exhaust housing, full 360deg journal bearing one.
- Ebay T3 manifold, wastegate.
- 3SGE intake manifold
- custom cams 273deg/8.9mm intake and 265deg/8.7mm exhaust
- 3" front bumper exit exhaust with Varex canon muffler (adjustable volume)
- custom NST alloy crank pulley. (underdrive and only 1 belt thick for the alternator only) (no A/C, no P/S)
- Mocal thermostat plate with 19rows oil cooler and 13rows trans cooler.
- Honda Civic Bar and plates 60mm rad.
- Moroso oil pan

- St205 rear diff and st205 gearbox
- Carbon fiber 1 piece prop shaft
- Stage 4 unsprung clutch with light flywheel. (probably have to change that soon)

CHASSIS:

- fully stripped. FULLY! lol
- fiberglass doors, bonnet, fenders, rear hatch.
- carbon fiber gt3 seats
- Lexan windows
- complete roll cage build starting soon

- solid engine mounts
- solid rear subframe mounts and diff mount
- poly bushes everywhere
- uprated swaybar links
- rear whiteline sway bar
- CEIKA Type 1 coilovers 8kg/8kg springs, front and rear camber plates.

BRAKING:

- CEIKA big brake kit 8 pot 356mm front / small 6 pot 356mm rear. With full-floating 2pcs slotted rotors.
- new brake line routing from front to back
- floor mounted pedal box and bias bar.
- hydraulic handbrake
- need to get some 18x9" wheels in order to fit 275mm tyres. (got some fender flares lol)

FUELING for E85:

- 1600ccs top feed Siemens low imp injectors
- dual 044 fuel pump setup with lift pump, surge tank and fuel cell. Braided teflon lines everywhere. Returnless.
- Devilsown water injection kit with progressive controller. (D03 nozzle pre turbo, D04 pre TB, 250psi pump)

ELECTRONIC:

- J&S interceptor safeguard
- Megasquirt 3 ecu. Fully sequential injection and ignition with COP.
- 14point7 wideband o2
- new wiring / stripped wiring / 3kg battery


The goal is to get below 1000kg and power i will see how it goes but around 700hp max. This engine will not last long and wasn't meant to. It's just to test the setup i want to run. And in the same time, see how long a stock fresh engine can last. :-)

I had the car in Australia for 3 years, then shipped it to France when i moved back.

Those pictures are from before, the car is in pieces at the moment as i will start building the roll cage soon and then full sandblast and respray with OEM white paint inside out. Once i have all the fiberglass panels on. Then put it all back together with all the parts above. There is a huge lego in my garage look. :-D

Here is a video of it the day before putting it in the container to France. PS: the car is hell dirty, after 6 months of work on it lol http://youtu.be/n8KJWSXGAYo?hd=1

Love it, everything looks really clean. Any estimates on what kind of numbers you'll hit ?

I like it. Looks clean. I am guessing by the exhaust routing it is a strip car or is it still a street car?

Thanks for the comments.

I will tune it to the limit. Around 13:1 AFR at wot. ~700ccs of water injected. I want to reach 400whp with that setup.

It's still a street car. I still haven't started it but i'm guessing it will be quiet with the varex fully closed.

The car is currently in Australia, but i'm going back to my country (france) next year. I'll ship the car over of course. And then the car will be registered in UK as a company car. You can do pretty much anything with the exhaust in UK...

There will be a video asap once i started. I just can't wait to start the thing it's crazy...

801alltrac> many advantages to pre turbo injection. Faster spool, turbo acts like bigger turbo, lower than ambient intake temps possible. And with no intercooler because you don't need it anymore, less pressure drop, faster throttle response, better spool again, less weight, less shit under the bonnet. I think i'll stop there lol :D And then there are all the advantages of running water injection...

But mainly i want the car to be different.

Cheers!

I've been away for a 2weeks. I will go back to australia mid january.

Before i left, i struggled with the megasquirt but it wqs only silly mistakes...

The night before i left, i solved the problem, and the car almost started but i needed to set the base timing before starting.

So it should start almost right away as soon as i get back to it.

I have to finish the interior also.
