Amazing.. especially with the full electrics and leather trim a 10 sec time is crazy. shows how strong the old C4 3 speed, 9 LSD inch diff combo is.

Yeah, nothing wrong with those low-style intake manifolds. Especially if you feed them with an intercooled charge at 25psi, sheesh.

I don't think it is any larger then standard, just polished.

For forced induction applications I don't believe there is any advantage to be gained from the EF-AU manifold. These have the long/short path to utilise the ram-air effect of the air's own momentum. When you start forcing it in with a turbo or supercharger any N/A gain from ram-air effect becomes redundant.

I think I read somewhere that the BA XR6Turbo has the butterfly's removed (or fixed open) in it's inlet due to this.

Hmmm... that looks like a EB/D motor with an EL head... i thought the thermostat housing and power steer pump were all different on the EL's?

I reckon it's the original car's EL motor. That's an EL style single belt setup isn't it? With the usual cover removed.

It just has the EA-ED low-style intake manifold to better mate with the turbo/intercooler setup. Shorter piping!

Question hmm...

No I think brent is right. The belt setup on that thing looks more like that of the ea-ed then the single (much wider) belt found on the EF-EL's.

Sure VL turbo's may go faster with the nissan engine, but I bet they are not as comfortable :)

thats definately an EA-ED belt setup (look at the power steering belt) and definately an EA-ED thermostat housing. I wonder why this was done?

non-standard coolant tank, also... to make way for the turbo, and the heat it makes i guess :)

also not that that PCV has moved off the top of the rocker cover to the side! just picked that one up then.

yep, EB-D XR6 motor with a EF rocker cover i bet, you can see the T cast into the head, and the thermostat housing is from a EB, belt setup etc is too, including mandatory coolant leak.

they have taken all the wiring out of the engine bay and moved the battery too.

DAMN I LOVE THAT CAR!!!!
