WAIT A MINUTE, WAIT A MINUTE ........ lets not get carried away let me bring upto date with what i been doing the last 12 months CHECK IT !!!

 

What up PEEEEPS,

 

yeah I know , I know its been a crazy long time since updating and thats just not right so instead of giving you excuses i'll just get straight into tha truck load of stuff I've done ...............

 

check it........

 

so the front bash bar was fitted then outta no where came Paul from MTQ at regency park [LEGEND] with my new 38mm TiAL external gates man these things are sick (not 1 gate but 2 !!!!!) #f**kEVERYBODYSHEARING !!!

 

IMG_2492.jpg

 

so I got stuck into modifying the seat rails to get the seat lower as Im 6"1 my head with a helmet on nearly hit the roof with the standard seating position, I know alot of people had gone the flat floor option but to be honest I didnt want to go down that path I like the standard look.

 

So the standard seat mounts got removed and to reenforce the mounting points I bent up some 8mm flat bar in the same shape as the OEM mounts and welded them to the under side on the floor to give me maximum clearance

 

IMG_2496.jpg

 

and then gave them a lick of silver paint on top and seam sealed them and painted underneath, from looking at them you wouldnt even know.

 

IMG_2497.jpg

 

so with the main floor bracket down for my seat it has actually dropped the seat by nearly 2 inches and with my helmet on got nearly 3 inches of clearance and still retaining the factory floor plan....

 

IMG_2498.jpg

 

now i just gotta do the same to the passenger side :?

 

So Angry Panda racing have got this awsome set of Carbon fibre panels for the stock FD and i'm keen, so placed an order for them !!!

 

IMG_2538.jpg

 

The Haltech iQ3 dash will look sick mounted on there !!

 

So finally got round to getting the Bash Bar off the front and painted it and fitted it all up, it looks killa painted silver

 

IMG_2609.jpg

IMG_2612.jpg

 

Well while Im onto Bash Bars I got onto Lance at WALKER CHASSIS again [LEGEND] and got him to bend me up some pipe for my rear

bar and as usual he has excelled himself..

 

IMG_2706.jpg

 

This bar is going to be a bit easier but I want to incorporate a rear jacking point also as with the rear diffuser being so low I wont be able to get the jack under the diff to change tyres........ Im going to mount the bar to the strongest part of the rear where the OEM bash bar bolts up directly to the chassis, so first to make templates for the brackets

 

IMG_2707.jpgIMG_2708.jpg

 

I decided to fab the brackets for the bash bar outta the same thickness flat bar I used for the front, making cardboard templates makes fab work easy as !!!

 

IMG_2712.jpg

 

IMG_2714.jpg

 

P.S does anyone notice what rims I got on in that shot ??

heres another pic of my new rims !! :laugh:

 

IMG_2713.jpg

 

More about them laters........... Piecing the bar together proved to be a bit more tricky than I first thought I had to jig it up a few times to get it to sit nicely in the rear bar

 

IMG_2760.jpg

 

IMG_2766.jpg

 

but once it was all lined up, notching and adding triangulated bars was easy .....tacked them in and put it on the bench to fully weld it ready for fabbing the jacking point....

 

IMG_2769.jpg

IMG_2780.jpg

 

I tried to keep it simple as there was already a very strong cross bar in the chassis standard which already had a bolt hole for where the petrol tank bolted up, a simple bar down to this bolt hole where I fitted a bit of 90 angle with a larger piece of tube bolted into the OEM hole..

 

IMG_2784.jpg

 

Then I cut a hole in the carbon fibre diffuser and jacked it up to test it out .........works a treat !!!! :twisted:

 

IMG_2785.jpg

 

IMG_2788.jpg

 

IMG_2787.jpg

 

With the bar fitted ....

 

IMG_2789.jpg

 

I decided to paint this bash bar black coz it suited the back of the FD better incase I lose my rear bumper :bounce:

 

IMG_2805.jpg

 

dont mind the pink bits on it either hehe.........

 

let me know what you think peeps

 

stay tuned there plenty more to come !!!!!

 

Cheers

What Up everybody,

 

I know I know the updates have been slow !! Been so busy its not funny....... I wanna get all the progress to the current state up before I starting posting up Vids of the finished product !!!

 

So here we GO....

 

After finishing the BASH BAR it was time to fit all the oil line for the pile coolers, Im in love with the AEROFLOW fittings and the colours the raw silver fittings do it for me and no worries with scratching the colour off witch makes fitment easy as !!

 

IMG_2949.jpg

IMG_2950.jpg

IMG_2951.jpg

IMG_2953.jpg

 

Running the lines and attaching to the body using the billet line clamps looks classy and so easy to fit !!!

 

IMG_2968.jpg

 

and the fittment behind the bumper is sweet !! I love being able to see the lines thru the bumper holes haha

 

IMG_2954.jpg

IMG_2970.jpg

 

OH MAN got pics back from STAN THE MAN (the best alloy polisher around ) of my partly polished TE37's OH YESSSSS !! #f**kyourfakewheels

 

IMG_2966.jpgIMG_2967.jpg

 

while on the cooling side of things picked up the power steering cooler just generic kit and they work the best !!

 

IMG_3383.jpgIMG_3384.jpg

 

I'll fit that a bit later !!! Started cutting out the holes to fit all the switches etc for the dash came up nice

 

IMG_3385.jpg

IMG_3386.jpg

 

I decided to fit the brake bias knob & the start button in this panel also to keep it all in the one spot, thats basically all the switches it needs as the HALTECH controls everything !!

 

OHHHHH MAN MORE PICS OF THE POLISHED TE37'S

 

IMG_3556.jpg

 

AUTO PORN !!

 

IMG_3557.jpg

 

Next Up... fitting the dual engine breather system, starting with 1st catch GREDDY can mounted on the fire wall, the 2nd can will be mounted at the front of the engine bay [ that will come later]

 

IMG_4170.jpg

IMG_4171.jpg

 

Fabricated a breather tube that was previously an oil return for the stock twins set-up that goes directly to the sump, perfect for breather....

 

IMG_4162.jpg

 

I love the look of the old school map style breather lines so I found some at clarke rubber that was oil resistant and perfect for breather.

 

IMG_4245.jpgIMG_4460.jpg

 

I also fabricated some more heat shielding for the lower intake manifold [you an never have to much heat shielding], I made some basic tabs off the manifold bolts, made a cardboard cut out of what I wanted then cut it out of the heat shielding and bent it up by hand TO EASY !!!

 

IMG_4351.jpgIMG_4352.jpgIMG_4455.jpgIMG_4456.jpg

 

OK OK its getting serious now - BIG BIG THANKS to PAUL @ MTQ for the hook ups of my new GT35/1.06 with Stainless Stell TAiL housing V-BAND to V-BAND ..... F*^KING EPIC

 

IMG_4546.jpg

 

Time to start building the stainless steel exhaust manifold with the help of my good mate ALEX REVELL from [ REV-L A Rotary Passion ]

absolute legend !!

we started with a heap of 2 inch S/S steam pipe bends and worked our magic on the belt sander to get as equal length runners as we could, it a time consuming process building manifolds but when you get it right - WOW !!

 

IMG_4548.jpgIMG_4547.jpgIMG_4544.jpg

 

The hardest part was getting the external gate runners in the right spot as we are running 2 x 38mm gates so position is paramount but we got there in the end !

 

IMG_4622.jpgIMG_4597.jpg

 

With the gates dummy fitted its a snug fit but enough clearance from the steering column and still enough room for all the air and water lines ....

 

IMG_4599.jpg

 

Top View with tuber dummy fitted LOOKS MINT !!!

 

IMG_4603.jpgIMG_4604.jpg

 

Now time for die grinding the shit outta it and knife edging the internals of the manifold for maximum flow and reduced air disruption 10hrs of die grinding later you get this LoL (hope the pictures turn out !!!)

 

IMG_4564.jpgIMG_4562.jpgIMG_4565.jpg

 

thats it for now more to come tomoz

 

let me know what you think

cheers

What Up Everybody,

 

I got another stack of updates for ya to feast your eyes on .......

 

After the manifold was done was time to do the exhaust system, I once again enlisted the help of old mate crazy eyes aka Alex Revell aka REV-L A Rotary Passion to help with his awesome TIG welding skills....

 

IMG_4601.jpg

 

We started on the dump pipe first and as you can see in the pics we have created an expansion chamber type dump due to recomendations from Jason and his experience with Bridge Port Turbo's and there high exhaust gas temps, This design actually helps to keep temps down and increase flow FYI !! Its a 3inch out let out to 4inch dump then back to 3 inch using reducers

 

IMG_4606.jpgIMG_4605.jpgIMG_4623.jpg

 

I also decided to use V-band flanges for the exhaust system also as it makes it so easy to remove / replace with just 1 bolt !! one the system was fabricated I then exhaust wrapped it from about half way down the mid pipe right thru to the muffler and then also heat shielded it to reduce the heat transfer to my fuel cells in the passenger seat wells

 

IMG_4713.jpg

IMG_4716.jpgIMG_4719.jpg

IMG_4914.jpg

 

I chose to go with the similar muffler to my old FC as I loved the note of the JUN-BL mufflers Big Big thanks to Marky @ Exhaust Technology for the HOOK UPS absolute gentleman !!!

Although I wasn't happy with the tip so we've since changed it but you won't see it till its finished hehe

 

IMG_4608.jpgIMG_4609.jpg

 

I received the fuel rail from XCESSIVE MOTORSPORTS in the USA to suit there full flow L.I.M. so it was off to MTQ to see Paul again for injectors, Im running 4 x 1000cc in manifold & 2 x 750cc in engine should be plenty of fuel for the bridgey !!!

 

IMG_4823.jpgIMG_4825.jpg

 

Im solo happy with the placement of the turbo to the intake manifold, Nice spacing !! Also in this picture you can see I have removed the standard water pump assembly as I decided to go electric water pump and side mount alternator to allow more room in & around the motor !!

 

IMG_5088.jpg

 

Rohen @ XTREME ROTARIES in melbourne came thru with the goods and sent me a full side mount kit for my motor WOW he make some amazing gear !!

 

IMG_5190.jpg

 

I also ordered and received 4 x LS7 truck coils that have there own heat sinc on the rear of the coil to aid in cooling due to there high output, I made up a neat little bracket and will mount them straight in front of the spark plugs.

 

IMG_5626.jpgIMG_5627.jpg

 

Ok, you will be pleased to know after much research I decided to dump the silicone on the intercooler pipe work as it always caused me problems popping off so to eliminate this I opted for the WIGGINS PEGISUS CLAMPS for USA these thing are rated to 150psi and a neat as F*#K .............

 

IMG_5841.jpgIMG_5842.jpg

IMG_5845.jpg

 

The only difficult part I found with using these type of clamps was the pipe work had to be perfect in length and the bends had to be all cut square so they butted up neatly to the other pipes it was a bit time consuming ...........

 

IMG_5847.jpg

 

Once dummy fitted together I dropped them off to my good mate ANDREW MILNE to work his magic welding all the clamp ends and pipes together, while he did that I dropped into MTQ at REGENCY PARK again to see Paul and picked up my TAiL blow off valve !!

Andrew did a SICK job of welding all the pipes together WOW !!!

 

1392710_753108204704255_1278665221_n.jpg

 

AAAAAAAND the finish product !!! pipes and clamps fitted and blow off valve on also !!! YEAH BUDDY !

 

1459806_10151968781549214_1100374411_n.jpg

 

Also in this picture you can see the MEZIERE ELEC WATER PUMP, the quality of these pumps are 2nd to none but more about that later

 

thats it for now guys stay tuned for more !!!

 

Cheers

Cliff

Ok everyone SOOOO MUCH STUFF TO UPDATE WOW !!

 

 

The stainless steel HKS super filter is premium and fits in nicely next to the intercooler and with the 4 inch intake pipe made by Alex Revell just suits the engine bay and serves a purpose for cold air intake.

 

IMG_5210.jpg

 

IMG_5842.jpg

 

Next was to fit the MEZIERE ELEC WATER PUMP and plumb it upto the V-mount radiator set up,

As you can see I removed the standard water pump set up and ordered the twin outlet adaptor from the states.

 

IMG_5843.jpg

 

Unfortunatly the one from the states didn't suit so I got one of XTREME ROTARIES full CNC twin out let wow these are Incredible....

I ended up fabricating a bracket for the pump out of 100x3mm flat bar and mounted the pump to the rad bracket, with a couple bits of silicone and the water temp sensor section installed, it looked real neat....

I also got a breather tank from demon-tweaks.co.uk with the same size inlet/outlet as the radiator with the outlets at 90 deg to tie in nicely with the outlet on the KOYO rad and to the inlet on the motor.....worked out well

 

IMG_0061.jpg

 

Another Idea that I wanted to try on this car was having a additional pump due to the fact I'm running 2 water cooled external gates, I got my hands on a little davies craig pic up pump and started to design the way it would circulate cooling water for the gates and the turbo, I had 2 x outlets added to the cooling system one on the breather and one on the temp sensor housing

 

IMG_0497_1.jpg

 

So the cooler water coming out of the rad feeds the pick up pump which pumps it into these blocks made by AEROFLOW which have 3 outlets, 2 of the outlets feed the gates and the 3rd outlets feeds the turbo, then the same for the return into the AEROFLOW block then back into the hot side of the Rad set up, all of the feed line I made up of stainless fitting and braided lines and then used heat sleeve to protect the lines, Happy with the end result.....

 

IMG_0498_1.jpg

 

IMG_0499_1.jpg

 

Next on the list was fitting the mazda3 electric power steering pump, I decided I wanted to mount it inside the car under the dash to the back of the passenger side foot well this allowed me to use the standard brackets, which made install easy, then it was off to super cheap to get a heap of power steering hose sections that I used to to get the tank fitted, the main feed line I used braided line and got an adaptor fitting to bolt into the power steering rack, on the return I also installed a power steering cooler and ran all the lines the same way, with a couple nice Aeroflow hose clamps to neaten it up and secure the hoses.

F*#ken epic build dude. Top notch build quality and love the choice of car. Rota love. I've had a few rotars in my time, (old school) and anyone who's driven one knows the grin they put on your face. I can only imagine how big the smile on your dial is gonna be when this thing hits the track. Subscribed to this epicness of a build. I need another rotar :)

Ok another update incoming .........

 

After the cooling system was done it was time to do more heat shielding !!!

 

I picked up a couple packs of the DEI REFLECT A GOLD HEAT SHIELDING BARRIER FILM, this stuff is so good to work with and easy to install

 

IMG_0679.jpg

 

IMG_0490_1.jpg

 

The main objective it to shield around the turbo area and dump pipe to stop the heat transferring into the cockpit.....

 

IMG_0495_1.jpg

 

IMG_0617.jpg

 

IMG_0616.jpg

 

IMG_0618_1.jpg

 

Once the DEI REFLECT A GOLD HEAT SHIELDING BARRIER FILM was installed the AEROTECH alloy shielding can go back on....

 

IMG_0494_1.jpg

 

IMG_0619.jpg

 

Next super excited the Haltech PS1000 with the IQ3 Data Logger dash & Smart Wire Kit arrived from sydney and Wow I am blown away......

 

IMG_0442_1.jpg

 

but more on the install tomorrow

Peace

Ok Peoples Haltech Install time and wow do I have some surprises for you hope you like them!!

 

I've always had an idea or starting point on how I want to install the computer.

My idea was to mount it to the floor of the passenger side foot well and I honestly couldn't believe how well it all fit in there.

 

IMG_0453.jpg

 

Also to the left I mounted the Defi controller, also the can hub controllers for the haltech also fit in nicely behind the ECU

 

IMG_0489_1.jpg

 

With it all neatly positioned it was time to cut the templates for the clear acrylic to be put over it

 

IMG_0674.jpg

 

IMG_0677_1.jpg

 

I also order a carbon foot well that will be mounted the to acrylic

 

IMG_0672_1.jpg

 

IMG_0675_1.jpg

 

And the finished product the acrylic plate, put down it looks amazing

 

IMG_0729.jpg

 

next was to mount it and I was freaking out because drilling the acrylic is an art form and found coz the first one tried I shattered it with the first hole I drilled using a normal drill bit hahaha so I had to go get a second floor plate made up and try again and this time I got a special drill bit and managed to get all the holes done

 

IMG_0749.jpg

 

next update will be the wiring and smart wire install

Ok Gents Updates A PLENTY so to kick it off from where I left off and wow I can't wait to show you all what Ive been doing !!

 

OK, so with the foot well acrylic floor plate and the carbon foot well in I was able to put the stainless battery box back in after feeding the loom thru the fire wall and all fits SNUG.

 

IMG_0750_1.jpg

 

Far out the HALTECH ECU loom is complex !!!

 

IMG_0875.jpg

 

Next to install is the Electronic Isolator I purchased from the UK from DEMONTWEEKS along with some racing buttons [more on them later]

 

IMG_0869_2.jpg

 

I wanted to mount the Elec Isolator as close to the battery as possible as well as the Volt Stabiliser, I used a RAZIN volt stabiliser in my previous car and found they made a difference with electronic function

 

IMG_0899.jpg

 

IMG_0898_1.jpg

 

With mounting all of it on the battery box allowed for super short wiring and keeps everything super neat in my opinion

 

IMG_0897.jpg

 

next to be mounted is the HALTECH ECU SMART WIRE

 

I also wanted to mount this as close as possible to the battery box but out of the way, I found this spot on the trans tunnel perfect as its tucked underneath the dash just enough to hide/protect it but also is in a spot the we can access it for the data cable input etc..

 

IMG_0900.jpg

 

IMG_0975_2.jpg

 

Something else I wanted to put into the mix is a Charger/jumper pack point in easy access as the battery and battery box will be difficult to access once the dash goes back in, so for this I sourced some 12V anderson plugs and hard wired lines direct to the battery, I also made jumper leads and a trickle charger connection to use for the plugs [simple & easy]

 

IMG_0990_2.jpg

 

And the finished product all installed.....

 

IMG_0991.jpg

 

THE HEART AND BRAINS OF A MONSTER.........

 

IMG_0992_2.jpg

 

Next to come - the carbon dash !!!

Share this post

Share on other sites

OK OK OK

 

We are getting to the POINTY END of the build now wooohooo

 

The next to install is the Carbon dash, I picked up this amazing carbon facia thru ANGRY PANDA FACTORY incredible quality and fitment

 

IMG_0587_1.jpg

 

IMG_0458_1.jpg

 

I also got some carbon sheets to make up new facia's for my centre console and the DO-LUCK gauge pod came up NICELY !!

 

IMG_0456_1.jpg

 

ok so mounting the IQ3 dash is super easy with the template provided by haltech , all I did was add some extra braces to further strengthen the facia and the mount , I also added braces to the top part of the OEM dash that the facia mounts to which made for a super strong unit

 

IMG_0459_1.jpg

 

IMG_0467_1.jpg

 

IMG_0468_1.jpg

 

IMG_0469_1.jpg

 

IMG_0471_1.jpg

 

And the finished product of the IQ3 dash mounted......

 

IMG_0473_1.jpg

 

Next is I removed the centre aircon/heater controls facia and replaced it with another carbon blank facia by ANGRY PANDA FACTORY once again "CARBON PORN" is what comes to mind for me haha

 

IMG_0891.jpg

 

IMG_1041.jpg

 

I decided that I wanted to make this panel removable so I used the facia as a backing plate and made up another panel to go over the top, I sued small nut-certs and hex head bolts to fix the panel to the facia, this give me the ability to remove it and get in behind it for any reason.

 

IMG_1042.jpg

 

IMG_1046.jpg

 

IMG_1047.jpg

 

So back to those switches and the part I hate the most is figuring out where they should all go.....things I took into account when putting the switches in was; 1.how often they get used, 2.what there purpose is either for safety or function, 3. being able to reach them while strapped into my racing seat means the important stuff has be able to be reached at arms length.

 

IMG_1246.jpg

 

Pictured below is the final switch placement for the switches I can reach at arms length, starting bottom left the recall for the Defi gauges, above that is the left & right indicator switches, above them is the toggles switches for the IQ3 dash, to the right of the dash is the green isolator and accessories on switch and the engine start button

 

IMG_1251.jpg

 

IMG_1254.jpg

 

For the centre console switch panel I've put some switches I wanted to try and it probably very different from what you would be use to [let me know your thoughts about these??]

the switches are as follows:

#Top Row - left to right; 1.Wipers, 2.Headlights, 3.Hazards, 4.Flashers

#Bottom Row - left to right; 1.Water Pumps, 2.Radiator fans, 3.Oil Cooler Fans, 4.Dash Fans

The water pumps, radiators Fans & oil cooler fans are overrides over the HALTECH ECU so I can turn these on after the car has switched off giving me the ability to cool the car and keep water circulating while off and stationary

 

IMG_1257.jpg

 

IMG_1256.jpg

 

Very happy with the finished product !!!

let me know your thoughts guys?!?!

 

Ok so next the FD goes in for a quick cage modification then its off to the lads at GARAGE7 for the wiring to be finished, more updates to come !

G'day Lads,

 

Thought it was about time to get motivated to post some more updates....SO HERE WE GO !!

 

ok so straight of the bat - Most definetly have a external kill switch as pictured below.

 

IMG_5737.jpg

 

And as per cam Regs it has a BLUE TRIANGLE in front of it to identify its location so all good.

 

so to continue on it was onto AM Engineering just to get a couple cage modifications done

I had the cross bar changed for a ladder bar arrangement which makes for easier acces getting in and out of the carand the front legs was changed and had the map spec dimple die tie ins on the front windscreen which increased head/helmet room for me & the passenger.

 

IMG_4096.jpg

 

IMG_4698.jpg

 

IMG_4697.jpg

 

after the cage mods where done it went to FISHER paint n panel to get the cage coloured in Came up MINT !!

 

IMG_4900.jpg

 

IMG_4897.jpg

 

IMG_4901.jpg

 

Back at GARAGE7 for final assembly and final prep for starting her up, The wire up these boy did is INCREDIBLE !! Hats off to Declan and Stephen absolute legends

 

IMG_3861.jpg

 

from twisting and heat shrinking every wire, to building fan/water pump controllers and even designing a complete speed controller set up for my mazda3 elec power steering pump that can be controlled by the haltech AMAZING !!

 

IMG_3866.jpg
