What it looked like not long ago.

Had a heater hose go and overheated my forged engine, Decision was made to pull my good engine out, source another and just put my old stuff onto it, and tune on e85 for matsuri and rebuild my forged on the side.

 

Pulled old engine and box out. Went and picked up my new engine

Put the new engine in and went to matsuri. Engine made 330HP then did a big end mid matsuri.

Plan was always going to be to go to change to rb26. Happened to be that the day the sr20 let go, i went for a ride in a LS1 powered BMW. Quickly after riding in it and experiencing the amazing torque the LS, i made the desicion to go to LS. Idea first off was to purchase a LS1 and go down the simple root, it quickly snowballed and i ended up picking up this LS3 built and stroked to 427. Will also be receiving a HKS T51R

 

Engine Specs:

 

GM Alloy Block - Stroked 427ci - Manley Forged H Beam Rods, Crank, Turbo Pistons 9:1 Compression.

ARP head studs and mains.

Sump with Baffeled Pan

SRE - High Volume Oil pump.

SRE - Upgraded Timing Chain

Hardened Lunati Dual Vavle Springs

Hardtop Vavles

1.8 Yella Terra Adjustable Roller Rockers

Polished Ls3 Throttle Body

Water Pump and Pully with Attachments for Braided line.

ASE High Flow Fule Rails

 

Will also be recieving

Fast Intake Manifold

So is this going to be a single turbo or twin turbo ?

I've always loved the look of a big v8 with a big turbo sitting on each side of the engine

Still have the turbo kit off it here, for sale aswell as not needed now. Just a single turbo, will have enough trouble fitting the one.

keen to see the result. should be off dick!

going to need a clever piping setup, cos that engine bay will be very cramped. i have seen guys running VQ single turbo steups with the turbo mounted at the front of the bay, just behind the radiator, this way the turbo isnt favoured to one side of the motor.

Yeah sweet dude that's the kit I'll be using, you should see some massive power my brother used to have a vy ss with a t51r on 12psi it made 420rwkw so yours should make bullshit power

Possibly will matsuri... would love to. Will take whatever time it takes though, i find when you rush builds... shit gets half done.

Turbo will be mounted on passenger side up in the front corner. 6 Boost will be sorting out manifolds/pipeing etc so will be well done.

Even though i wasnt really chaseing numbers.. same setup without intake/throttle body etc on pump was making 649hp so should make 700hp on e85 @ 10psi super easy.

Rear housing is like 1.01 or something. Was worried bout lag first off.. then realised i have 7L of torque to get me by before the turbo kicks in ha. Gate will be 50/60mm

Nah motor hasnt seen the engine bay yet. Old SR setup has now been sold.

 

 

Welllll.

 

Started to get a bit more stuff bought slowly. Picked up a 40L fuel cell and aeromotive pump that flows up to 2000hp or something crazy . Also picked up a set of MSD coilpacks.

Never really welded to much so it has been a super slow process getting my tubs in, taking the time so there strong/dont look like arse.

 

IMG_1648_zps6c66c5e6.jpg

 

Ripped all unnecessary wireing out, and removed rack etc so replace a few more parts with cool shit and move forward.

 

IMG_1672_zps21ba3287.jpg

 

Started prepping for some new paint aswell. Still have to remove seals etc.
