I have been thinking about what color I will paint the wheels in.

Gold was my obvious first pick but gunmetal/dark gray is also nice.

What do you think??

I got my last bits for the gearbox change that is planed for tomorrow. Kartboy gear linkage bushings and new exhaust gaskets.



Also Keith at revolution called today. He got some news about the Team Dynamics wheels. They agree to let me paint them but their boss hadn't yet approved the amount I want back.

I got a fiat color painted on a piece of plastic so I could visit the guy who bought my old wheels. I loved that color so I want to paint the new wheels in the ssme color. The fiat color was almost perfect. 98% accurate. So it will be perfect







two pictures of guy's car, he who bought my old rims.

Hard to take pictures on them but you can see the difference...

Looks like quality job there, and I'm sure these will look great on your car.

Have you had any feedback from the manufacturer / supplier of the wheels on the quality of their product?

I hope they will look good =). I will find out this afternoon.

Yes the manufacture and supplier nows about it and I will get a partial refund so it will cover the cost for the respray and a little bit more.

I did a new wheel alignment today..

I added some more camber because the values I had before was not enough.

I also tested the top speed of the car and it's about 179mph....

Today I did some changes on the air filter placement. It now sits behind the front bumber.





This is the view from the fog light cover. I will cut of some of the metal to get more room for the hose.



It looked like this before.



Right now I'm driving without any cover but I will buy one of these fog light covers, so I get more cold air to the filter. I will attach a hose to it to lead the air directly to the filter.








Earlier this week I wrapped the downpipe with DEI Titanium heat wrap.







I also bought some new trackday tires. Toyo R888 GG 215/45 R17.





I bought the wheels and tires for £410 used. The tires have rolled 10 laps on the track. The wheels were OZ-Racing Prodrive P1 17" wheels. The wheels had scratches and marks.



I sold the wheels and my old Toyo R888 GG 215/45 R17 tires(1.6-2.5mm left), made in 2008 and 2009, for a total of £365 =). So the new tires only cost me $45 =).


-3 degrees camber is kinda aggressive =).




Here is a bonus picture from the last trackday I attended.

Just read through all this, what an awesome project you have and a very tidy looking type R. I'm not usually into the white and gold, but you've managed to pull it off well! Good job mate

Well last trackday the rear diff didn't want to play anymore. Something happened when the rear right hand side driveshaft popped out of the diff. It popped out because I had adjusted the lateral arms to much. But that is sorted now. New diff is in place, the lateral arms in winded in and camber bolts are ordered to still be able to achieve some good camber.

Yesterday I rolled the rear arches to to make more room for the tires.

I cut away some metal in the front to make room for the future hose between the new fog light cover and the filter.

Will do an alignment as soon as I get the camber bolts.

Camber bolts arrived today and here is the result of the alignment.


Före - before
Aktuellt - current
höger - right
vänster - left
fram - front
bak - rear

I've got a nice increase in camber caster compared to last year =).


Last years alignment:

Got some problem with the boost last week. After some updates the flow on the exhaust side is much better. Even the relocation of the air filter made difference. Every update made the turbo to boost creep. The wastegate couldn't keep up and the boost peaked away. On 0% duty cycle of the boost selonoid I hit the boost limit at 1.5 bar on 5-6 gear.

So yesterday I removed the turbo. Ported the turbo, smoothing the edges into the wastegate hole and making the wastegate hole a little bit bigger. I also ported up the exhaust inlet to the turbo.







Mounted the turbo back today and went for a test drive. 0.6 bar on 10% duty. Now that's a big difference . Now I got nice controll on the boost. Boost peak at 1.4 now after some tweaking with the laptop.

The next big step for the car is, MORE POWER!!

I've sorted out three different ways to go. My goal is at least 400hp and good spool up. I drive mostly on the street but hit the track about 5-10 times a year


Nr1: 2.0L semi cdb from a new age. Running the standard stuff. The cheapest option, but you never know what condition one used blocks are in. How much does these handle with standard internals? 450?


No. 2 2.0L cdb with forged internals and stroke to 2.1L. Give me a sturdy and reliable block. Provides more torque than the 2.0L and the option to go closer to 500hp later if I want to. Same price as building 2.5L I think ..?


Nr3: 2.5L block with forged internals. The extra volume provides better spool up and torque which is nice for a street car. But how much can these handle? 450hp??


Which way should I go?

Probably going for a SC42 or SC46 billet depending on the block.

Then there is all the supporting mods.

Tubular headers - Witch ones?
Up Pipe - Witch one?
Injectors -at least 740cc - DeatschWerks??
DeatschWerks DW300 Fuel pump
3 or 4 bar map sensor
Parallel fuel rails - Buy new ones or modify the standard.
Adjustable Fuel Press regulator - 2 or 3 port Fuelab Mini
New clutch for 6speed - Witch one?
Lightened flywheel for 6speed to match the clutch, if the clutch doesn't include one.

2.1L CDD running E85 will be a nice car even without avacs heas.

Maybe SC42 on E85 will be able to be pushed close to 450 on E85,
Maybe the SC46 twin scroll made some nice figures(Harvey posted in the SC turbo thread).

Budget newage block

How about start out with a newage block and 400hp with a sc42. And later if I want more power. Forge that block(can I stroke it?) and push closer to 500 with a bigger turbo. Can that block handle that power with forge internals?

You can stroke any block you want (even 2,5 to 2,66 if you really want to).
I was basically thinking the same way for my v6.Currently have 330bhp,6speed box,coilovers,AP/brembo brake set up......so all i need is power.

There is a good topic under SN general.

I decided ill go for pinned or CDB 2,5 cause of the torque and SC 42 billet.It should spool like crazy

how much is it to get a cdb 2.5?? The extra cost is to make it cdb right? How much is that? I haven't read much about cdb 2.5 so how well tested is it?
