GTV 3.0 24V

Avi's GTV turbo

Hi all

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.

Great Avi!!! I will support you anyway I can my man just lemme know. The 19's will look insane on your car, with the right amount of Low ofcourse. I believe it has the ability to be the greatest GTV in SA...if you want that title, you'll need a good all rounder, power, stance, looks, drive etc.

I'd also try looking for good racing seats, not crap ones, but ones that fit in well with the interior...recover them in the interior color.

Red GTV with the Cup kit and sparkling silver 19" Ti's...woah!

I just don't seem to get enough time set aside to come look at them, sorry man. Can you possibly cart them to the track day for a view Avi? I know it might be difficult with picking up Lance's wheels - lemme know.

Fantastic, Avi! From previous pics, I've always admired your Gtv.
Glad you didn't sell it.

Woohoo! Subscribed. It would be nice if TN could make bolt-on kits for GTV's and 156's which one could buy in parts over a couple of months or a year for later fitment.

You keep MAF where it is, just after the air cleaner, I have heard it works under low / medium boost, but Carlo experienced under high boost it messes about. You have to recirculate your dump valve air, (pre-trottlle back to pre-turbo) as the MAF already registered it and fuel for it, you can't dump to atmosphere otherwise it will overfuel
