Hey all, some of you may or may not know my zed. It's been around the Vic group for a while now. My old NA motor had some valve train issues, a well built motor (ex badxtc) came up for sale, I decided to swap and improve instead of repair. Having known Alex for a while now I bought the motor with confidence. Started the swap in June, working on it slowly during my spare time, work kept getting in the way as I often have to work weekends. Finished everything this week and she's a bit different on the outside, a lot different on the inside. I've always loved the original series 1 look, body is stock and amber indicators looks great on red zeds IMO. List of parts: - Early '93 series 1 TT motor (Manual cams) - Ported heads with head studs - 1mm oversized stainless Fererra valves, 5 angle intake, 3 angle exhaust - Forged Cosworth pistons, standard bore. 4 thou piston to bore - Blueprinted and balanced bottom end - Match ported upper and lower plenums - 60mm throttle bodies with porting to suit - Heavy duty valve springs - Powder coated plenum - 850cc injectors with 300 degree rail - Mike Smith manifolds - GT2560R turbos w/ billlet wheels - rob260 custom split 3" dumps - Custom mandrel bent 2.5" twin system - UAS centre muffler - Magnaflow mufflers and high flow cats - Ash Spec V1 2.5" intake piping - Blitz Dual SBC-R electronic boost controller - Nistune Type 2 - AIV, EGR, PCV, PRVR removal - Stainless 1L catch can w/ 1/2" barbs - BDE alloy alternator mount - BDE goose honk killers w/ stock recircs - Z1 thermostatic oil sandwich plate - NA oil filter tree - Setrab oil cooler - Carbing front strut brace - Tein Monoflex coilovers F 9KG, R 7KG - Tuneagent midori style front camber arms - Tuneagent R spec rear camber arms - Tuneagent pillowball tension rods - Chili brake master cylinder brace - R33 GTR Brembo calipers (repainted red) - Endless 2 piece GTR sized rotors - DBA 4000 rear rotors - Endless MX72 pads all round - NISMO LMGT4 18 x 8.5 F, 18 x 9.5 R - ADVAN AD08R 245 F, 265 R - Retrimmed interior in velour - BRIDE fixed back bucket seats - Nardi 350mm deep corn - NRG quick flip - IMPUL rear wing - 5000K HIDs - Yellow Jspec fog lights - LED parkers - Jspec side markers - Rolled guards Results below: - Turbos are GT2560R w/ billet compressor wheels (Small GTX hybrids which are a new CZP kit) Car made 363rwkw @ 23psi and 670nm from 4500rpm (I haven't even used this setting yet). 343rwkw at 20psi and 600nm from 4500rpm (used briefly but the rear still gets loose at the top of 3rd even on semis). All tuned on BP 98 although I have to say the rate the car now uses fuel almost seems like it's on E85. Most of the time I'm using the 17.5psi setting which is around the 300rwkw mark. Trent at Chequered Tuning did a great job, gains to be had at every bump in boost but at 23psi it's at the limit of the coolers (Japtek massives / James007 mofo). As suspected, we were limited by intake temps. Needed fatter rubber so the 17" LMGT4s are now off the car and upgraded to some wider 18" LMGT4s (I'm a fanboy). Refinished in Formula Silver which is a limited edition TE37 colour. Wearing ADVAN AD08R rubber. Photo dump of the progress along the way, image count warning!!! Day myself and Sandeep went to pickup the motor. She's a bit dirty but that's how I like it. Bits from COZ have arrived. Old engine coming out. Pulled dash, full aircon removal and brand new engine loom going in. rob260's custom dumps. These are an awesome piece of kit. NA lump coming out. Prepping the engine on the stand. New wiring loom going in and dash back together. Changed the NA fuel pump to stock TT pump. Reused all the ancillary parts. Ceramic coated the dumps and also MSP manifolds locally. Tur bros. Nismo copper mix twin plate. New motor back in the car. Accessories on, intercoolers on. New Koyo rad going in. Rebuilding the stock recircs using the BDE kit to hold more boost. Love cable ties (these don't leak btw) Turbosmart fuel pressure reg, very happy with the setup, looks stock(ish) Adding Setrab oil cooler. Had to insert some rivet nuts as the NA doesn't have any threads but does have predrilled holes. Damn LHD fittings, 120 deg fittings don't fit due to steering rack fouling so changed to Speedflow 1x straight & 1x 45 deg fitting. Getting close now. Nearly ready to start her up! All done and she's finally out after 4 months. Getting the new 3" dumps mated to the existing 2.5" system. Chequered Tuning doing their magic. Finally getting her new shoes on. Waiting for my front tyres to be delivered to Melb as they had no stock locally. Z needs to start sharing her space now. Spoilt rotten in the garage for too long. Backed one side onto the sidewalk to check clearance. Clears, just barely. And that's it really Thanks to the couple of members who lent a hand. You know who you are.
