if you aren't going a massive amount of power 1000cc injectors will support over 400kw on E85. you can just use both the feed and return as feeds and run a single new return line.

as for 11:1 and bent rods if you are going to the effort of making it run 11:1 might as well throw some aftermarket rods in it as they are only ~800 for a decent spool set.

That's how I looked at the build was if I wanted 11:1 i'd need rods, which to me meant a whole motor build. At the moment everything on thi. Car has all been about bargain hunting really.

And from 1000cc to 1600cc there isn't much price difference.

I'll do some calcs late tonight if I can get my ecu to let me download it and get the dc of the 880 injectors.

At 3500 this motor feels dead as a door nail, but it's making 190 rwkw. But at 5000 rpm plus it's making 250rwkw which accelerates 5 times faster... Dyno definitely didn't read my full power read out properly... I think I'd max a 1000cc set, or at least be chewing into the safety area...

Watch this space though, big changes to setup before next texi!!! :)

good choice on the stand. where from and what price, that is what i need.

I bought it from a local race place.

Total Race in Wollongong.

Bought $170 I paid. Probably a touch more then I needed to, but it was simply email one of the guys there and he called the moment it came in.

Titan: that's my garage... Missing a skyline... Lol

So, I forgot to follow up on this and update everyone, at 6000 RPM and on 1bar of boost, with an afr of about 11:1, the car is using 70% of injector duty cycle on 880 cc injectors. There is no way I can even move to E85 at the moment with my current setup, and 1000cc wouldn't cut it either...

Using the old 1cc of injector = 1hp I'd be making around 600hp at the fly... Or around 450 HP at the wheels, or about 330 rwkw...

Well, it looks like this adventure of smashed motors, and other issues from crazy horse power is coming to an end.

Another motor is going in (Still a 30) although a smaller turbo is being put on and then the car sold off.

But don't worry! The big turbo is going to another member to blow motors up with and I'll be back straight away with most likely two new beasties for some circuit work!

So, things didn't pan out how they were planned to back in July, my white beasty is still with me, and there will be no new additions to my fleet just yet.

But what does this mean for my car?

Well, the huge turbo is GONE. Like, completely, manifold, dump turbo, GONE.

I have a new turbo sitting here (ATR43G3), which should give a super responsive setup with a very usable rev range.

I also have a new forward facing plenum.

Camber arms.

Coilovers

All to go in.

But what's happening with the motor? Well it's not 100% decided yet what products are going in, but there'll be some nice little goodies going in for a budget rebuild to handle some circuit work.

It has started! To pull the engine out, I just need to get my mate to give me a hand one night this week as well as: Under the tail shaft, and undo the gearbox cross member.

The spare motor is stripped down to a short block, I need to get some bolts to put it on the engine stand, and strip it down to nothing and send it off to be X-Rayed and machined.

Then to buy some parts to bolt it all back together!

Before it goes back in though, I WILL be cleaning every bit of the engine bay, and even doing some repainting. As you can see, I've already started, for anyone who's looked where my air filter normally goes, the chassis rail that runs beside it is normally black from grease and oil... I spent around an hour and a half stripping out those little clips that no longer hold anything, and deciding how I'm going to re-route a heap of cables through the guard to tidy stuff up!

It's beginning!

I also need to keep an eye out for a good condition front reo bar. When someone owned it before me, they appear to have had a minor bump in the front passenger side and put a minor dent in it, of which I'm not happy with! (I'm becoming a perfectionist with this car now...)

So, like, I couldn't get the motor out, as my missus isn't strong enough, not matter how hard I yell... (I KID! :))

So the motor is still in, but we started cleaning a bit more instead.

This was the start (Well, it had had a bit of a clean... The white area... )

62001_1522272971311_1069171597_31554361_3310887_n.jpg

So I scrubbed a bit...

61286_1522275291369_1069171597_31554366_2660925_n.jpg

And some more...

62776_1522276451398_1069171597_31554369_974470_n.jpg

Stupid spots that aren't smooth panel! They don't want to come clean!

And I need to do this all over the front of the car... Both inner guards are full of oil and grease, mainly this one though from a track day issue...

Some how even more stuff fell off the front though...

So, I had some time on the weekend, and while I was looking at the car, a few things fell out...

Mainly being the front half of the tail shaft, the gearbox, my airconditioner and then some blasted Rats ran off with the wiring loom...

I was going to take out the engine, but the problem being, it appears that when the RB30E was pulled from my mates old car and stripped, the brackets for putting the chain onto appears to have been left on the head, when it went to the tip... So the engine is still in the car... :thumbsup:

It's being supported by just resting on the mounts and against the firewall.

OMG! Someone stole my dash and aircons!

65201_1538774383836_1069171597_31590552_1042539_n.jpg

Wonder how fast I'm going?

58164_1538775383861_1069171597_31590556_1019519_n.jpg

But you know what the REALLY big question is, other than what's going back in... Do I remember how it goes back together...

MAtty - use some bolts in the head where the brackets were and slip the chain over those, just make sure you have some washers big enough so the chain doesnt slip through.

I'm being very untrusting of an individual bolt... I thought of doing it... But will it really take that load?

    • Just wondering if there is anyone else. Spoke to them but want to know if there is other prices out there in Aus. Do you know who make the polycarbonate windshields? 
    • Try a window tinter for tear offs, a local place here in Townsville has done them in the past. A quick google search will help https://www.facebook.com/RaceScreen-Tear-Offs-169184126960839/ https://www.alfab.com.au/3d-shaped-polycarbonate-race-boat/
    • Yes but no.  Start with 450hp and see how it goes. Should go alright with Z221 295 Hankooks all round. I'm running Enkei RPF1's but reading the above might have to look at other options if I get into it again. Koya seem to have some well priced semi forged wheels.
    • Anyone know we’re I can get tear off racing windscreens in Australia? Similar to the ones you see on the V8 or on your motor cross googles. Also where can I get polycarbonate windscreens for a commodore here in aus ? Please let me know 
    • @GTSBoy, School me on the ITB options!! We are not committed to the RB26 option. For us it is all about the sound and feel of the car. Big power figures are not required. Any RB25 NA engine is going to be a big power increase on what an L series NA can do. It has to run well on 98 fuel. I run my WRX on E85, and I like it on a big boost turbo, but it can be a hassle to get at times. The S30 has to be able to go on a cruise and get fuel in little town 2 hours from a major city. So that will probably set the comp. Then we will get the heads done and some not too wild cams. I think revving for max power around 8k (limit to 8500?) as it will cost lots to get a bottom end to stay together much higher.  That should set the cams. We want to run the NCVS which is one of the reasons I wanted the NEO head. Some nice headers with the ITB should do OK for power and sound great.  Light flywheel so it is snappy free revving.  We just have to find the right engine to start with first!
