I bet the shop smelled wonderful....lol
^ I'm at the shop now. He started it up for me... Yes the shop smells wonderful!
Is that a fireball halo coming out? I see what appears to be flames in the exhaust. If so really cool shot.
about a 4 foot flame from the exhaust and i guess jackson caught the very last bit of it on camera, thought it was a pretty cool picture none the less
car made 539/441 on 93 octane and wastegate pressure letting off at 6400 because my wastegate springs are so high. so far its looking like its going to be a monster. considering theres another 20psi left, e98 and revving to 9000 rpm. this turbo should start getting extremely efficient in the 35+psi range.
:wiggle::wiggle::wiggle: excited to say the least :wiggle::wiggle::wiggle:
Post a dyno video?!
On snap chat haha its nothing exciting, letting off at 6400 the turbo was only in boost for 900rpm. I'm more excited to see a 40+psi 9000rpm rip
Almost makes me want to rebuild mine
but the wife could read my mind and asked if I had any bites on the car or parts today.
for the lazy.
The $hitbox radiator fan combo I used wasn't working at all so our fabricator is building one today off a core I had made 16.5x17.5x3.25 double pass. Trying to use a 14" 220w 2170cfm fan if we can squeeze it in there.
Thanks chris (killerB) for the advice on the phone!! We should be in business now!
Comeon it's been 18 days.
*knock knock* this thing on?
i know you've done a real dyno pull by now at least
Hopefully there's no *knock knocking* going on.
You guys lol
While I was out of town for a funeral for a family member, rob got started on turning it up. The goal is to stop somewhere around the mid/upper 40s. At 37psi it made 730whp, however the power was dropping off around 8k. I'm really wanting it to carry to 9k or so for a better powerband. So I've installed a process west billet track manifold to see if maybe the intake was the limiting factor at high rpm. Just finished up the install Saturday so hopefully rob will get her on the rollers sometime early week.... lol or today
Sorry for the delay.... we've been busy whipping some ass at the bucshur shootout
(**7.91 @ 178 - 1.270 60ft - 5.17 1/8th**)
That is one good looking engine bay right there sir. Looking forward to seeing some videos of this beast!
Thanks!!! I have a video but I can't post it until it's finished unfortunately
Sexy manifold. Is that a Nerf football in the exhaust? LOL
That is exactly what it is :wiggle:
Are you already running the triple pump setup, or just one or two?
I noticed with the PW mani that you had to leave off your 2nd rail's for now. I'm sure to test your theory it won't matter though.
Swapped 2000s, triple pump at 25psi
Wastegate needs another spring, made about 765 at 40 psi. Going to take it to the track at 40 psi for now to see how it does!
Gained 75whp and 60ft lbs at 6000rpm, also holds up top
Beautiful man! Testing, data analysis > talk and theory all day long. Great respect for you on that (and the shop).
I wonder if the PW mani would help me at all @ 520whp / 23-25psi?
Probably not, I have stock heads / valves with just springs and GSC S2 cams, no port work.
I would have no issue testing it on yours and having it tuned, you'd just have to have the piping put together and tuned obviously, quick before run on the dyno to see true before and after
Nice! Hey what happened to the "sound wall" behind the dyno door? Ya'll give up on that or what? Not that it would really matter with your side exit exhaust haha
We passed the sound test. Then moved it to install the new dyno.... and never moved it back lol
Excited to announce Chris of KillerB Motorsports has a super gangster holy header headed my way to test!!!! Stay tuned
haha sick man!
i'm already convinced that one of these far away days on a future build i'll be using that manifold. If your custom built header can be improved upon, that will be another thing on the list.
I'm using one Kelly (tigwerks) made for me right now (equal length)
Kelly makes awesome stuff!!!
We'll see if there are gains to be had from the holy header
Have you read this thread?
Some interesting stuff on outfront closed deck blocks. I haven't finished it yet, it's super long but everyone seemed to chime in at some point or another.
Chris from Killer B, Maxwell Power, Outfront themselves, JR, i forget who else.
The one thing I noted was that they were quoting numbers of boost limits even with closed deck's of like 35psi on 8.5 to 1 compression ratio's which I know can't possibly be true.
I stumbled across it when researching the limits of the stock sleeves and open deck like i'm running just to see if I could squeeze any more out.
Read it 3 times before buying mine. Jeff tested a v2 motor if im not mistaken, maybe a v3. They rate the v3 to 700whp. I've had a V4 since before it was sold to the public and they rate it for 1000whp. JR has also run these setups to 60psi without issues. When I get the header on well be seeing what it makes at the same boost level and then turning it up more
Supposedly they've still never had a V3 failure to date
Nice man, thanks for the info there.
I wonder what Ryan (stirhino) used on his build (what revision) i'll have to ask him.
Also, did you see what jeff was doing with individual cylinder AFR's and EGT's?
I thought his findings were pretty eye opening in regards to #2 and #4 being leaner. Certainly backs up what everyone sais about the stock tune being smarter then people give it credit for. I remember doug mentioning something like this to me, so i'm sure he compensated for that when he tuned mine but still very interesting.
Also the data around backpressure ratio's was pretty interesting too like how the stock turbo has a 2:1 ratio at 16psi (stock).
I wonder what mine is with the 6266 and a .82 back housing hehe
Well Jeff is using aem ems and with individual egt and afr if I'm not mistaken you can individually tune each cylinder/injector. I'm however on a stock ecu, until I make the jump to syvecs or motec m1. Depending on each tuners style determines where those limits are met. On e85 you see a very little decrease in power and torque when running it more on the fat side. My car isn't "lean" by any means, but some tuners will lean it out no matter what thinking thats the only way to make power. Neither here nor there, comes down to each tuners personal preference and style when calibrating.
Single digit MPGs FTW!
:wiggle: :wiggle: :wiggle: :wiggle: :wiggle: :wiggle:
Let me know what the dyno figures are, i'd be interested.
Between this and the Process West mani, I might be able to squeeze out more power at the same boost in my setup not increasing cylinder pressure at all on my open deck (or semi closed deck really)
:sx::sx::sx: that's what I'm hoping
It'll be finished up in the morning
Added another wastegate spring too
Do you need that pan to use that mani?
Works with 2.5 pan and all aftermarket pans
About 43psi yesterday
lol that poor onramp has seen so much abuse.
sounds pretty wicked bro! I want a ride.
Also I can see now how you broke a shift fork at the 1/2 mile last year LOL
I do not shift my car that hard heh
Also what was the outcome on the killer B header? Any gains?
Yes it made 700 at 32psi... hold header made 700 at 36.5psi
Current wastegate 23.7
Old graph 24.5psi
