So I attacked them with a stiff wire wheel, a couple of coats of etching primer and Ford Stratos silver (closest match I could get to the whiteline silver). They were finished with some new decals and

Well it’s been a while!   theres a long a weary story behind why I haven’t posted any updates on the car, which I can’t really go into...   however, I’m in the process of something

So, I can finally show you what’s been going on with my engine! In order to finally rid my set up of its gremlins, and in order to get the BEST possible tune, my engine has gone back to the state

Engine dynos FTW! Nice work well done emoji1417.png. What’s the target of your build - track/drift/fast road?

It’s just a fast road build, however I wanted an understressed engine. The engine is built for 1000hp and 8500rpm, but I’ll only be running at 60-70%ish of that power and a lower rpm, so should enable many miles of thrashing without any worries about the components being close to their operational limits

Haven't a clue what all that means Nick but you know what your doing so good luck mate. 👍

It just continues my ethos of having the best quality work and the best quality map on my engine.... however the proof will be in the pudding.

 

there may be an opportunity for some interesting testing on the engine aswell, will just have to see if things pan out

Under stressed engines always last so long so will be really interesting to see what the final set up is and a build spec list one day.

So what kind of gremlins as an example, were you having with the current set up?

This is all quite interesting to learn really, before I start building my engine!

The full engine spec is listed, probably a couple of pages or so back. I don’t know if you have, but it’s worth going through the whole thread, I detail all the finer details of the build, the hows and why’s throughout.
 

The limiting factor in terms of peak power is the turbos, which I’m fine with because they will give super quick spool and a really wide power band..... it’s still going to be primarily a road car, so peaky top end power is of no real use to me.
 

There’s a long standing belief  in the engine building world that if you build an engine as you would a high performance NA engine, the benefits are amplified when boosted (rather than just strapping big turbos on a fairly unimproved long block in terms of valvetrain, porting, etc) and that’s what I’ve done with my engine, I’ve specced the long block as highly as I can to maximise what the turbos can deliver.

Great cheers, I'll have a good read of the build spec then. Yeah agreed top end power no use on the road really, all about response! Keep us posted, looking forward to the updates 👍
