I'm pulling the engine this weekend so maybe by next week I'll have it all back together. Stock TB.

A few things I need to do:
  • Billet oil pump gears
  • Front crank seal
  • Oil pan gasket
  • New oil return line
  • Eliminate coolant lines to TB
  • Run oil cooler -8 AN
  • Modify valve cover for AN fittings on both sides
  • Run -8AN to oil catch can
  • Run Vibrant vacuum distribution block with hard lines
  • Replace diff/CV seal and flush diff fluid - Inspect rear end for premature wear

go -10AN lines for both oil cooler and catch can. bigger is better! I run a single -12AN line for catch can and it's glorious so far.

GT30R Showed up today.. Weird

New build:
  • GT30R Turbo
  • Tial V-Band hot side
  • BEGi custom intake manifold
  • BEGi S6 Exhaust Manifold - V-Band with External WG
  • Tail External Wastegate
  • BEGi 3" V-Band Downpipe
  • BEGi coolant re-route
  • DW 1000 CC injectors
  • DW 300 Fuel Pump
  • SETRAB Oil Cooler -8AN Fitted
  • Boundary Engineering Street/Strip Billet Oil pump

As usual- I've done enough reading to trust that each of these components is going to do exactly what I want them to. BEGi has been a great resource for me. A seriously talented group of people who are very knowledgeable when it comes to compiling a group of components that perform well together.

The BEGi items are a no brainer - quality and support are something that aren't so easy to find these days. In addition to that I was doing some poking around and found an excellent article written by Corky that was quite eye opening called, "Not all turbo systems are created equally" < Click to check it out. Most who are familiar with the brand are well aware of the overall quality being produced but there are a number of little things that make a big difference and I had no idea before reading this write up.

The S6 manifold not only looks like jewelry, it's a great flowing stainless steel manifold that externally gated and fit with v-bands. This is one area where you really don't want to cheap out. I've had half assed manifolds in the past and they've almost all failed me. This thing will absolutely see the abuse.

The GT30R turbo was my weapon of choice primarily because of the power output and it's efficiency range. My GT2860RS make some serious heat to produce the power that I'm making. It's very much so at it's limits. I can make the same power with a 30R on less boost and it would be a whole lot easier on my entire setup. My other consideration was the Borg Warner S252 turbo. It's quick, powerful and can be rebuilt but for overall reliability I've decided to stick with a Garrett oil/water cooled setup.

The Boundary Engineering pump is another no brainer - blue printed oil pump assembly and machined housing to increase flow. Since my oil cooler and VVT setup is likely going to eat up some PSI I'll be going with the street/strip pump. This addition is going to offer a huge piece of mind while I'm on the track beating the ish out of my car. Spoke with Travis about the build and he confirmed my thought that this was a better solution than running the crank dampener. Really knowledgeable guy and willing to help.

The rest of the setup is rather self explanatory but I'm excited to get rolling on the improvements.

FINALLY you spill the beans
It took me great effort not to say anything for this long.

Looking forward to great results.

I would advise AGAINST DW1000's. They are significantly inferior to the ID and FIC in every way. But good luck either way.

Is the S6 manifold any better than their S4?

its made of thicker material than tin cans

I also LOL'd at the giant BEGi plug that was totally not your style of posting/writing. But if they're sponsoring you, I aint one to judge.

The plugs are most certainly from experience. I've clearly gone with BEGi in the past and there is a reason we have this partnership today.

So boys.. look what just showed up...






Yumm.

If you install the new parts at your usual rate, we should be watching a dyno video in the next half hour.

Made some progress yesterday. Since I'm waiting on some parts to come in, I took care of some little detail stuff that I felt was necessary. The parts I did have were sexy but one of them didn't match...



The cast finish on the turbo wasn't doing it for me so I started to level it out for polishing. I'd like to end up with a decent mix of polished and black finished pieces under the hood.


Then I figured why not take some of the bs casting marks and lettering.. So I proceeded to grind those away using an aluminum bit on my die grinder.




I felt like it was a shame to get rid of the "GARRETT" name but it just didn't look clean enough to me at this point.


I stopped and left "ARR" to add some humor to the job. I think it's appropriate for the build.


After the heavy cutting was done with the aluminum bit and a number of sanding discs I moved on to a 220 grit wet sandpaper by hand. The polish by hand was getting to be a real pain so I made my own out of folded paper towel and an old sock zip tied around an old sanding disc.


Shes not finished but it's coming along really well.. ARR...


On the Engine-removal side of things, I stopped to test fit my beautiful BEGi intake manifold. Looks like everything is about right here. They tapped the NPT fittings on the bottom side to keep everything looking clean and it certainly does..


I tossed the car up as high as I could achieve on jack stands to make the removal easy.


Shes naked and ready to come out. I'd have pulled it already but a friend of mine borrowed my cherry picker so I'm held up at this point.


At a stand still on the engine removal, I pulled the valve cover and started to prep it for the -8AN lines I'll be using on my new breather setup. I flipped it and removed the baffles.


Then drilled it and tapped it for my 3/8 NPT to 8AN adapters.


I also enlarged the internal passage for more bandwidth.


Cleaned up and I was out for the night. I'll be back tonight to pull the engine.

My real question is how do you KEEP the aluminum bits shiny? Mine look like crap a week after I polish anything. Your whole project is awesome and well documented. Props to you.

So Iíve ordered a couple of the components. Did some more of my usual homework and took the purchasing plunge.

Oil Pump: After further discussion with Travis heís recommended the Street/Strip pump. I had my mind set on a Boundary pump to begin with but this seems to be my best bang for the buck. Oversized billet gears and they machine the housing for increased flow.



Fuel Components: For the power Iím looking to produce on e85 the pump was in much need of an upgrade. Iím not interested in a double pump system, an in-line system or anything like that so Iíve decided on the DW300 pump. It puts out 320LPH and is quieter than my WB pump. The other big deciding factor was the fitment. Deatsch Werks sells this pump in a vehicle specific package, so itís a direct drop in. I also ordered their Fuel Pump Hardwire install kit to help with fluctuating voltage being supplied to the pump.

Are you going to change your stock fuel rails? Talking to Stephanie the fuel stock rails are only good for 300hp. I'm suprised you haven't changed your fuel rails yet. But then again you might have ordered a new fuel rail already.

The stock 1.6 fuel rail is capable of 400whp with a Walbro 255lph.
