I have a EFR 9180. I want to max my turbo and see what she makes.

You should be able to hit 450awkw as long as the tune is spot on.

Hopefully man! I've started this project last year on the 1st December, so if I can finish it by December this year I would be a very happy man!

Do you have a build topic?

Hi all,

Back again with more questions ?

Is this something I have to get it fixed now or? Can I get away with leaving it for now and replace it /get it fixed when the car is in running condition? 

Also ordered new transmission cross member bushings as mine weren't looking that great

UPDATE

The picture below was taken on the 9th Oct. A lot has been happening in the past week whilst I was away. Ordered all the fittings, and the fab work started. (It is starting to look like a car now!😆)

Will be uploading another progress picture later today when I go in to check it out.

If you’re interested in a frenchys kit for half price I’m about to sell mine due to putting a surge tank in my car

Any reason you're going 3.5' exhaust and not 4'? I've just gone from a 3.5' to a 4' system on 98RON. This allowed me to run more boost (Ignition timing was close at only 18psi using -5's with the 3.5'). With the 4' exhaust and 4psi of boost added, I gained 40kw at the wheels. I'd definitely be going 4' if you're paying for a custom system anyway.

Could do 4' as well but I personally prefer the 3.5'. I think for the power I am chasing which is mid to high 400 kw's. You have a valid point tho.

In my opinion, no need to overkill.. the car will be run on E85 most of the time even tho we're going with a flex fuel set up, so we don't see the need for a 4' to chase a few extra kw's. I think it all comes down to personal preference and the power you'd like to achieve.

Two areas overkill is always better:

Fuel system - wiring and line sizes

Exhaust size

So yesterday I've started cleaning the disgusting fuel tank..

Here's some pictures of the finished product. (Unfortunately, I didn't take any before pics)

UPDATE:

FPR2000 is installed.

Haltech Flexfuel sensor is installed.

Catch can and the pod filter pipe will be painted gloss black this week so the engine bay should look a little more nicer.

hey mate, I know you have! you've helped me with this build as well (especially with identifying whether I had the long or short nose crank collar) appreciate the help🙏

My mechanic's welding skills are on point. Hoping to get the car before xmas so I can start on prep on the rest of the body and paint it during my xmas break!
