VR38 build

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Looking for a bit of a guide. I have a complete R35 GTR that I stripped down, the vr38 has a Samsonas sequential being it backed by a 32 GTR transfer case, 32 GTR with quaife in the back and quaife and albins gear set in the front diff.

Cut a long story short I have a bit of a build thread on another forum but I'm trying to sort out the parts for my VR38. I already have G25 660 .72 externals for it and I'm looking at approx 1200hp crank maximum on E85.

My thought process at the moment is

Carillion rods with carrs

CP pistons

ARP main studs?

Aged 625 ARP head studs

Kelford 272 cams and springs.

Motor runs motec m150 and daily dry sump pump but but is tba as I am trying to find some room in the front of this thing. I have a Waterman mech already that I will run this in the back with a cable. 

My question is do I run pistons on the stock bore and select the correct clearance piston skirt. That is option 1

Option 2 is run the small dry Darrin liners so it is a simple known quantity with approx standard bore pistons. I like this option also bit is preference 2.

Option 2 is not what I want and that is to run MID liners. I'm not sure I want to pull that much alloy out of the block.

If anyone has some experience please give me a hand. Unfortunately I am burning hours designing up custom dry sumps and bell housings for this thing and would like to not reinvent the wheel with this.
