Good luck with the build, should hit 400bhp with the right map. Looks externally gated. What manifold? Backdraft?
Gotta love those huge garrett inlets.

yep its externally gated a 41mm tial just waiting for it to be delivered, its a racing manifold from qed power just making up the down pipe as we speak and putting a screamer pipe on the wastegate.. all i need to finish is some injectors and some graft putting it back together ... htc what cc injectors would you recomend?

Defo worth the wait :)
Hey Jimbo, good to see the update pics, looks like you are getting on with it!!!

Have you changed the wheels on your car, im sure they were standard before??

Very nice choice. Full race mani arguably the best out there. Not a single failure to date. I take it they fit in RHD cars with 4WD then?

Screamer pipe, you nutter! Get some vids when it's done :)

See here for injector info --> http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1989841
I use USRT For injectors, tho Bob at QEDpower is a USRT agent and will do them for the same price so you could ask him what he suggests. I'd probably for for 630cc.

they are standard wheels just painted and minus the centre caps.. the down pipe is a bit of a squeeze but i think it will fit plus thats why im putting a screamer on to make it easier with all the pipe work.. just got a r32 throttle body as well through today plus some stainless tube to finish the down pipe..

cheers htc for the info on the injectors

Nice work. What rods did you go for? 82mm bore on the pistons?

Wish I'd gone for a top mount. So easy to get at everything :banghead:
 
jim S3, your engine bay is looking awesome! Loved reading HTC's BT threads - keep posting about how you're getting on.

Jim, do you have any more heat shielding to go on. I see some rubber and plastic pipes very close to the turbo. I would also invest in one of the TT coil pack wiring sheilds. Gonna get pretty hot up top now.

Defo worth the wait :)
Whoa Jim, that looks mint now, how long left till you are finished then??

Keep the pics coming, makes for an interesting read :)

well i had the block bored out to 83mm so not sure what cc it is and i have gone for scat rods. its only a matter of weeks now just waiting for parts then have got to run engine in then get a new clutch and get it mapped so could be a few weeks or could be around 2 months...

and yes htc there is loads of heat shielding to go on but waiting for the oil and water lines to fit the heat shield as got to take turbo off to get to everything..

Looking good Jim, can't wait for the local Midlands meet which I'm sure you'll be up for, so we can all have a butcher's at the finished article.

83mm bore with 86.4mm stroke gives a capacity of 1870cc. 90cc over the standard capacity of 1780cc.

I couldn't get scat rods for love nor money. On back order worldwide when I tried. Went for Intergrated Engineering items in the end (basically exactly the same rod).

Can't wait to see this one finished.

This will show when the boost will come in (you can all read compressor maps can't you?)

Might spool a little sooner due to the extra capacity. Also will depend on intercooler type, inlet manifold etc. Probably won't get much befor 4000rpm. It will kick when it gets there.

i bought the scat rods from some one on here a few nonths ago.. i aint to bothered when the boost kicks in as long as it does lol

Defo worth the wait :)
LOL...i like that Jim, "as long as it kicks in" thats what its all about (c'mon everyone sing the hokey cokey)

Very nice, I am looking to goto this turbo in the near future on mine so will be very interested to see how this goes. Also is the factory strut brace going to fit with the turbo there?
 

jim s3

Registered User
