Avi's GTV turbo
So; for all those who don't know what happened to my GTV at this years dyno day at FR&R.
On my way home i dropped 2 conrods which went through the sump. I was extremely dissapointed as that day was the most power the car made & was driving like a dream; really the car was at it's best.
So i parked it off for a month & then decided that i'm now going all out & want to build the best GTV in SA (hopefully)
The car looked beautiful (well to me) & nothing needed to be done in that department. The interior & body are in good condition. Then i saw a GTV with 19' Ti wheels & i had to have them. I sold my GT multispokes to Martin & was on the lookout for a set. After being messed around by a certain individual & searching for just over a month; Lance & i struck a deal. I will collect those wheels at the track day next week.
I will still need to change the PCD & buy tyres & will do that soon. But the car currently stands on a set of 17' teledials which i'm trying to sell off now (hint hint)
Now the fun part. So; it's time to rebuild the engine & add a turbo. This will be a very simple set up & i've already started gathering parts. I consulted with Gerhard (the car will go to Turbonutters probably in the new year) & he gave awesome advise.
Basically i'm going with a standard engine just with a 2.5 crank to lower compression. We'll make use of a T3/T4 turbo & a U flow inetrcooler as i feel that this will be easier to run boost pipes. Fueling will be taken care off by 2 extra 440cc injectors which will be mounted on the boost pipe & run of a seperate management system.
I want to make a max of 250wkw.
I will still need to upgrade brakes & get a LSD.
Please feel free to offer any advice? Will post pics of what i have so far soon.
