........... but it's a race car? why not gates out of the bonnet or out of the quarter panel like Ryan Tuerck's car?

Because NSW race car so needs to be below 90db or no Wakefield for you

95 dB if you hassle them during track hiring time

Mine was on the 95 mark last time i went out and they had no issues as it was a Time Attack event...

Unfortunately i never really got to update this after the turbo swap as the whole setup was letdown by the stock engine finally getting tired! I have punished the thing for over 10 years and many of those have been at 500whp... It was stock, including the headgasket which has seen 30 psi numerous times due to boost control issues prior to the upgrade.

So, when i ran the turbo on low boost it was mental, it was faster than the car has ever been and was good enough for a 1.39 at SMSP GP on basically bald semi slicks as they were around 400 laps old! The car was also bring on all shift lights in 5th on the straight!

I have another stock motor lined up for the car but am also considering a built motor, i always said i would never go down that path but will do the sums and evaluate what is best!

I still think my stock motor has been one of the best that i know of! Its done in excess of 200k and still hauls ass on track, the last compression and leak down tests were so low but the thing keeps amazing me!

Well the decision was made not to go with another stock NEO as the risk of failure again with the new EFR setup was too high! It was OK belting around the track on 300kw with the old setup but the bigger turbo is pushing high 300s on gate pressure with a worn out engine, so time to step it up a notch... 

Making space to get the engine out... Fills up quick once everything comes apart - 


Prior to removal - 


Just jacking this thing up with the aero is a pain in the ass - 


Removal is methodical and time consuming - 


Fabtech's work of art, not so user friendly when it comes to removal, but should be one of the last times it comes apart - 


You can see where the paint burned prior to the turbo heatshield was fitted next to the EFR, its pretty well hidden when everything is together. Once the new setup is complete i will clean up the engine bay back to its former glory! Just cus its a race car doesn't mean it cant look good!


Evidence of engine issues... I can shift the crank back and forth by hand... This was actually unexpected but does explain a few issues i had over the past few months.


So much room for activities!


Super Cheap Auto had a half price special so got myself a new engine crane and leveller!


Making a fkn mess :down:


Clutch is off getting a freshen up. Its done years of hard work and still performs faultlessly but while its out i might as well!


Can finally access all the lines that have been run over the years with the engine fitted and the mess just got more and more... Will spend some time routing stuff and cleaning up to make it easier to work on in the future.


Was a pretty painless removal.


Used whatever i could find laying around work to get it transported safely to our stretch wrapper.


Stretchwrapper did the trick! It wasn't going anywhere in a hurry!


So i just got an email as i was uploading these to inform me the engine had already arrived at Racepace (Bayswater VIC) which was under 24hrs... Not bad TNT! :486_truck:

While the engine is off getting built i have a long list of changes to make to the car for reliability as well as performance. I am not sure if we will make Round 1 of the NSW Super Sprint series as yet, really depends on the engine build time... We will do our best no matter what though! Once the engine is back and in the car it will go to DVS TUNING for a run in and base tune... We will run the first few events pretty sedate to ensure the engine is sweet before we run it up properly.

Suspension has been upgraded thanks to Josh @ MCA Suspension

Brakes have been ordered and will be all new and fresh for 2018

Clutch is up with Jim Berry getting a freshen up, its run since 2013 as is without a hiccup.

Tyres will have to be replaced... For those that were interested this is what i ran the 1.39 on - 


More updates coming soon!

Yay updates. Wish I had some updates >.<

I thought Jim Berry was retiring back when I bought my clutch 4 years ago? Hahaha.....

Giving away any plans on the engine build? Should probably keep the stock bottom end and we can battle it out for fastest stock bottom end, Jim Berry clutched, R34 GTT with a sick kunt driving it :4_joy::4_joy:
