    Personally I like the later response on the street ... got tired of the tires lighting up every time I thought of using some throttle. Much nicer to drive in the wet which is an important consideration over hear seeing as rains so bloody much :rolleyes:

    What people forget is that while larger Turbos may reach max boost and torque later they are also most likely still producing 300rkw give or take @ only 4500rpm

    I fitted 60mm Throttle bodies which have really improved throttle response.

    Just a thought or 2 ... was struggle but there you go :)

    Ok this may ask to be slapped in the face but I have came into some spare cash , is it worth getting ferrea 1mm oversize valves ..

    What are the performance aspects of this and are they worth it in my build. ?

    I don't think so, get/do a nice job with the ports is all you need.

    In my opinion larger valves get too close to the side of the combustion chamber and cylinder bore resulting extra "shrouding" ... this is bad enough with std. sized valves.

    Since our blocks are thin, a significant increase in bore size ( to give some room around the valves) is not an option.

    Of course there is, exhaust side more so to aid spool.

    Would my existing FMIC 500x200x76 be a restriction with the power output I am chasing (can be seen on unique auto sports website)

    You could always improve and go plazmaman but when does it stop, I wouldn't be too worried about that for now.

    Greddy vertical core intercooler may be more efficient than plazmaman anyway.

    official update 3 - engine pull


    well i set out last sunday to pull the engine, i had a few set backs along the way.. *cough* stripped bolt *cough*

    but i got there in the end and i pulled the gear box too, when it came to pulling the actual engine it was alot easier then some people had made out, i didnt have any clearance issues with anything.

    The block and tackle on the roof made it SUPER SMOOTH sailing :D

    Piccies coming up:p

    wheres my 'low rider' trophy.. ignore the front being 18" up ;)
    plenty of oil in here.. eek!:eek:
    My assistant "reece" looking rather concerned.. (and cold)
    NEVER leave these off your engine! so hard to put back on!

    "Are you sure its this one you pull "
    NEW engine- Ran of my own sense of SELF SATISFACTION :zlove:

    work all done for this phase.. now engine repainting and a few deletes to go :)

    Official update 4- HICAS DELETE

    So not much new in the last week, slow progression. massive degreasing job in the engine bay...

    I can actually see reflective material down there!!

    In the process i got stuck in and removeed the hicas and all associated lines in the engine bay. I also installed a nice blue TOP SPEED lock out bar while i was down there. Began masking off all the electrical wiring too.
    (lines still exist under car to the rear havent removed those yet.. yes im lazy :p)

    Few pictures .. a nice before and after shot.

    *NOTE* i am still to take a grinder to the HICAS bracket supports and smoothe out the fender im doing that this weekend ;) Then its time for a engine bay respray over the next week ;)

    so i havnt touched this in a week or more.

    I have been busy purchasing and researching my supporting mods.

    Turbosmart FPR1200 ordered (plus gauge and 8mm hose tails)
    Clutch/flywheel combination is a secret ;) will post up when im done.
    buying another MAF
    Still searching for 2x apexi air intakes.

    And otherwise sorting out what i need off my original engine to put onto my longblock.

    Turn your now redundant hicas lines into fuel lines ;)
  18. rob260

    rob260 Administrator Staff Member

    I concur.

    Procky you're running big walbro 400lph single pump right? HICAS lines are bigger than fuel lines -use these for send and return.

    And use -6 fittings on your fuel line not 8mm barb fittings.

    What's going on Rob? We have to stop agreeing!
  20. ProckyZ89

    ProckyZ89 Senior Member

    Already taken care of Rob JP is setting the fuel system up for me with -6 fitments. And I left the Hicas lines underneath the car on for that reason if they are to be used. I only cut the Hicas hose/line after the bolt in the engine bay (down bottom near fuel rails) so just need new lines from there.

    Also yes I am going a big 400L/H unit

    So I'm sure UAS will do my fuel lines right ? :)
