Project: Force Fed GT4

Postby klue » Mon Nov 07, 2011 3:17 pm

Hey guys and gyals,

I decided to do a quick little write up on the car that I'm working on at the moment. Since I have never actually taken the time to do a my project for myself, I choose my second favorite car. The car is a 1990 GT4 straight from Japan. Condition is excellent inside and out, a real pleasure to wrench on VS the rusty Canadian cars I'm used to building. For a little back ground, the car was previously "stock" and running a GT2871 turbo kit. With upgraded management,fuel, inter cooling and suspension the car was able to muscle out a mid 13 sec pass. When I was first introduced to the owner it was already set up and running mediocre. He had it built and tuned at a local tuning shop and the work was sub par. They complained that it was running lean and thus was developing minimal power. Sadly, the shop just did not know apples from oranges. After some quick tuning with the management system we rekindled the missing power and the car was running great. This was short lived as I suspect the months of running lean took a toll on the pistons. After getting the extra 40-50 ponies they let go.

With a few tear drops and dollars in hand we set out to build a bad ass, force fed GT4. Guide line for this build was strictly give her hell. The whole build is based around the turbo charger. Selecting a Garrett GT35, .63 for the pumping duties. Forged pistons and rods will hold the ship together, and a rebuilt head to flow the air. Lots of custom parts on this build, and a few top secret mods :smokes:

It looked baked when I got it, but it wasn't shot peen'd. Do you mean shot peen the block, or bores specifically?

Here is the long block assembly, almost fully assembled. Think I was doing the valve clearance at the time. Used the later revision 3sgte cams to keep the VE broad across the band. The cams are properly timed stock and with our combination of parts creates a interference motor condition.


Running tein coilovers to control the wheels. You can see the new SS brake lines, painted up everything pretty


Here is another pic, the ARP wheel studs are in to accommodate our 18inch spinners

Running the gen3 cams, shim'd to my specs. Still using the shim over bucket set up. May end up doing the head again when we have a intake manifold which can support more RPM

Engine button'd up on the stand
