DEFTFORCE is da ****!

 

 

It all started when I had my drivers licence. I built my own dragster, a Cuda -70 with 1136 hp. Hemi Cuda -70

 

 

It was an awsome adventure to be in control of this extreme machine, knowing I built it myself and have success at the races. Eights on the strip, lovely time it was but rediculously expensive.

 

Today I´m building an extreme street racer. Handling and brutal power in a nice wraping.

Even if I am building most of it myself, it is costing a lot, but it is worth every single Krona, Euro and Dollar. Luckily there are many good suppliers around the world who produce quality parts at decent prices. I have made many good contacts during the years.

 

I bought the car in 1998, it was in a very good condition and more important, the engine was flawless and without errors and only a few Miles on it, just to pay.

 

The first mod I did was 17" rims, lowering springs and adjustable Koni dampers.

After that some styling. Got in contact with Erebuni and together we found a package and named it Shogun. They still use my car on their site.

 

The engine needed an upgrade. Started with exhaust system, chip tuning, open air filter and increased boost. The result was rather meager, some lousy 200 hp. Nothing to chear about. I got an intercooler, a larger turbo and a manifold. Increased fuel pressure and a modified chip. Together with some other changes, the engine produced some 300 hp... Still not satisfied.

 

I sold most of it.

 

After a heavy research I started collecting high performance parts to make it 100%. Forged pistons, forged rods, new aftermarket control unit, injectors, turbo, manifold, large IC, water cooler, clutch, oil cooler, fuelpressure regulator, blow off valve, etc etc... Bosch Motorsports added high ohm 960cc injectors from their development department. It´s nice to have contacts.

Lots of things is needed to assemble a 600hp engine.

 

How will the gearbox manage all those horses and the hughe torque?

 

The original tranny dies between 300 and 400hp...

 

I have to make my own.

Said and done. I bought a Z32 tranny that without swetting manage more than 1000hp.

The bellhousing was cut off and the S13 flange part was TIG welded on. A special made prop shaft and a tranny bracket was made. Thats it! OK...a short shift on top of it.

 

Potent engine, durable tranny...but...gripp?

How to solve this?

 

Bought 18" Japaneese light weight drifting rims and really good rubber.

One of the better LSD:s on the market was bought from ATS in Japan and found its place in the rear axle.

Coilovers, adjustable link/rods made of chrome molly, ball joints, swaybars...there is a long list over all modified chassie parts and upgrades.

 

I mounted the brakes from a Skyline, both front and rear. The brake discs got some work and the wheel hubs was exchanged to 5-bolt version to prevent the wheels from escaping during acceleration.

 

The interior was modified with Sparco seats, 3" 6-point belts and some more, making it able to handle and keep full control over engina data and the car handling.

 

It is not an easy thing to create a monster kind of car but with time and effort it is possible, but not for free. For more information, have a look on my site. There are lots of pictures, both on parts and projects.

 

I look forward, summer to come

`Shogun´

It has been rather unclear what ARP-studs to use for the main bearing caps on the ca18det. I made an extensive investigation and can now confirm that the kit 165-5402 is a 100% fit.

get off your high horse man, there will always be a better engine somewhere in the world. not everybody loves SR20's.

 

my question is why is the exhaust manifold not tuned length when everything else is well planned? and i was going to ask why the internal wastegate but then i saw you changed it.

 

i agree with the others on the body styling and props to the effort of the build.

not on a horse

 

just saying i dont like em

dont be upset because i think rb20's are poo as well

 

respect to the amount of work u put in and im sure it will make a shit load of power

 

looks like its a trust manifold and ur modifying it by changing the turbo flange on it

the short runners should help with response

Nice build so far. exterior styling is personal preference, up to him. As for ca18 IMO i think they are a superior design to the SR20. Like a baby RB. Out of it all though i love the garage the most! I'd love something like that it would make everything so much easier than working in my little one car garage!

Awesome build and loving all the pictures to go with it. Looks like plenty of time and thought has gone into it. Exterior isn't my cup of tea but each to their own! Look forward to seeing some pictures of it in action. Left hand drive too, where about's are you from?

Nice car mate with top quality parts, very comprehensive with all bases covered!

 

Not that my opinion matters too much but I don't mind the looks, the silver tames it down a bit and looks nice and clean.

 

Even better that you are doing the majority of the work yourself.

 

Even better again that you have your wife and kid supporting you with it!

 

Good luck with the rest of the build but don't think you will need it!

Thanks for that mate. I have had that bumper on the car since 1999 and in near future something will change. Regardless of that I am satisfied with the looks of it and in real life it looks even better. It is very hard to take justifying pictures.

 

Thanks again for being friendly and honest. That make the effort easier :D Wish more people would learn from your example.

That garage is awsome. I wish I had it allready long time ago. The ca is very well designed and only need some changes coz of the high power output. About 700BHP is a big deal to handle so pistons, rods and bearings must be exchanged. Other than that it is a question about what else to upgrade to create the power.

 

I wish you in near future manage to get hold of a good garage mate.

cheers

exterior styling?/?!?!?! far out THAT is an extreme ca!

 

Just wait mate. The styling is in no way ready yet. Nice things in ongoing but no photos till it is done.

 

That tiny little 1.8 liter turbo ca is great fun. I have built a high powered Hemi once but this is a different school. :D

Thanks for your opinion

 

Yes it i a Trust manifold but since the turbo is changed, I will build my own exhaust manifold with shortest possible runners to get the high energy pulses straight in to the turbine wheels.

Also needed because of the external waste gate.
