How it looks now :)

I've fitted a cage, Willwoods, modded the sump and made up some headers :)

These should help me stop nicely

Modded the sump to fit :)

Got some new knuckles for more lock :)

Starting to feel the crunch now!
Its getting there though.

After trying out a few pipe designs, we figured that this layout wouldn't work:

This one would work a little better I think...

One side done!

Rinse and repeat for the other side! :)

So had it at Powercruise on the weekend and foudn out that:

- In the wet, it'll happily smash limiter in 4th anywhere you like, and almost pull fifth around turn 12

- In the dry, it runs out of revs in third and the RPM drop to fourth means I have to straighten up before I can get enough speed to turn 4th sideways... damn fast though

We're going to lift the limiter to 8000rpm to see what she'll do

Change my name from Stevumi back to ToySprinta?

We took about 700ml out of the sump, but fitted an oil cooler and lines to make up for it.

We've got planes to build a dry-sump setup for it in the near future anyway :)

WOW! I did think about this for a while but couldn't find any engines cheap! Well or as cheap as what I got mine for anyway.
Very nice! Also where are you located? Would like to see this thing out on the track!
I drive in my Falcon and I like driving it, but it has no heart/soul.

I'm currently working in Sydney, so it'll be out and about there :)

Upcoming events will be:

Motorkhana in Canberra on the 18th

Heading to Raleigh drift comp on the 1st

Then the next weekend is Toynats in Dubbo and hopefully the IDA day in Wakefield on Monday


...this is all pending whether I can string enough cash and rubber together :P

This is Insane! You should try and get a TRD Aurion Supercharger Kit, and it'll be even more mental. :yes:

Keep up the good work. :y:

Lovely work on those manifolds! That's a lot of grunt for a lightweight car!

Found an Aurion S/C on eBay, but did a bit of research... they are massively undersized for the engine. Eaton recommends the maximum capacity of only 2.4L...

plus.. the snout would stick out of the bonnet :P
