And the buildup (finally) begins
There are a few of you out there that would be aware that i have been living in isolation in order to fund the build up of my EB. So here 'goes..
Firstly, rough engine specs.
O-Ringed 4.0L block, balanced standard crank, balanced and shotpeebed rods, ACL Dishtop pistons (although after some reading here i may look at alternitives), ACL rings, ACL race head gasket, ported head, CC'd chambers, Crow HD double valve springs and retainers and a cure cam custom grind cam.
I am having a custom 11L plennum made, I will also install oil catch can, surge tank, electric water pump etc etc.
I am as yet to decide on a turbo setup but I was leaning towards one of the Snort stage 4 kit but I have contacted them regarding a bigger wastegate as a 38mm wont be sufficent. I vuagly remember reading someone on here sells turbo manifolds?? Has anyone used one? results? suggestions?
Cooler dimensions are 520mmx300mmx80mm and will be hidden behind my GT front bar (with some modifacation of course.
Fuel Wise: Bosch 044 (i think, it may be 040) in tank pump and a rising rate regulator. Now i am after some suggestions for injectors, This car will not be a daily driven car rather a weekend car so i had considered upgrading to Malpasi BO18047 injectors but running 7 of them for the strip and control the 7th by a microfueler for high boost and the 6 of them only for the street. And mate that with a chiptorque chip until such time i can afford to blow the $$ on a aftermarket ECU.
Transmission wise i am sourcing a C4 conversion kit from CRS which with mated with my already fitted Detroit locked 9" should keep that under control for a while to come.
Thats about all I can think of for now I will post more as it comes to me, if you have any suggestions or questions please feel free to ask.
P.S. Bottom End should be back this week I will definently post pics
New ride: EB GHIA, 5sp manual, pod filter, lightened flywheel, 9" diff conversion, locker, Superlows all round, full EB GT body kit, extractors and Zorst, EF XR8 wheels, Recaro Seats, GT Wheel and more.
