Hiya, been a bit quiet while figuring out what’s best to do but the ball is now rolling!!
After finding out the head had cracked on Kate, I’ve removed the engine salvaged what what left over.
I now have a st170 engine that is currently having the bottom end completely re built so I no it’s all good. Along with ARP rod bolts and a decompression plate. She also has a sidewinder t3 turbo manifold to relocate the turbo unit above the gearbox. Got my self a Mk1 focus RS turbo this weekend.
The next thing on the list is the ARP head bolts then the engine is going back together. For the inlet I’m keeping the GSXR throttle bodies and getting Plenuim chamber for Dan st engineering. I wanted to keep the throttle bodies As I like the look of them. The only down side is the blacktop head and the st head is slightly different so he is supplying a new manifold to accept them bodies.
Once I get the engine back from the shop i will post up some more pics and info, I’ve never done this build dairy before so bare with me lol
my aim is to get Kate back up and running for March April time with 320bhp and a slightly different look... thanks Sean
Been a bit quiet again as had some hold ups. Progress got slowed right down as I had trouble with dynotech in Ripley. Gave me the worst advice on what to do and it resulted in bad engine damage. So it all had to come out and be rebuilt again but that’s another story all together. So I’ve some new spoiler brackets mad me up. Rather happy with them, just waiting for the powder coater to finish off with them now.
Also treated her to a devils owns water methanol injection. I have her booked in locally for a new link g4 ecu on the 18th of June. I can’t bloody wait 😆
As soon as I have an update From the mapping I will post it up. Cheers sean
Got the new spoiler brackets finished off. Very happy with them. Finished the car yesterday. She’s all back in 1 piece. Such a relief. Fitted the devils owns water methanol injection on a progressive system control via the ecu.
She goes for mapping on Tuesday so fingers crossed 🤞🏼 soon to be apart of the 300bhp+ club again 😁🏎🚀
