well shes home, for good this time i hope, suspension, steering and idle are all sorted, well, mostly. idle is not perfect, takes a few seconds for her to settle down, and the low revs (pre 1600rpm) are still a bit rough, im thinking that the new hardware just needs time to bed itself in as the revving has been improving all day. cant find anything wrong with the engine. the mods are all working as they should be although its hard to say how big an impact they have at the moment as im keeping the revs below 4k-ish to allow the internals chance to get to know each other!
as promised heres the list...
started life as the 2.0TS Selespeed Lusso with 150bhp and 182Nm torque...
engine stroker kit to 2100CC (aprox)
Inlet and exhaust manifolds gas flowed / polished whatever you prefer
All ports matched on inlet and exhaust sides
GTA throttle Body polished
Custom piper 'ultra road' cams, 289deg
Omex 6 series ECU set up as piggyback, couldnt get standalone for the selespeed system (which is handling the power ok so far)
custom cold air intake
custom stainless steel exhaust, 2.5in pipework, high flow cats
race spec 6mm valves
bronze valve guides
balancers removed and engine balanced
front lsd to keep it at bay!
and to stop the thing ive went for a set red dot 20 grooved disks and red dot competition pads, does the job champion!
still bedding in, and i guess i will be for another few hundred miles yet so cant be absolutely certain of the performance but we are hoping for aprox 240hp and about 260Nm torque, should be enough to propell her to 62 in about 6 seconds and keep her accelerating hard right to the limit! time will tell on this tho. shes a lot more torque thats for sure, pulls very well at low down revs in the higher gears, but im yet to really open her up.
sound like an acceptable gain from the 200.8 i had prior the belts failing? any excuse eh
