Default EFR 7163 powering a MSM via Motec M130

Sort of new around here but figured I would start this build as a log for my MSM that sat in a corner for the past 3-4 years. I am by no means a fabricator so don't freak out if you notice work not up to your standards. I figured I would relieve stress from the day time job by spending time with this car and trying things I haven't attempted in the past.

The car in its glory days



Now (it turned into a parts donor for the friends around the area).


Placement of the turbo with twin scroll billet collector


Engine management for this build


PWR Nascar oil cooler test fitment


Motec display


Accusump setup and random oil fittings


Intake manifold flanges in case I failed at the fabwork

Builds like this make me wish I had better fabrication skills and tools (and money)

You have my attention. I was going to do a 7163 twin scroll but changed my plan and am now building everything with plans of the 6758 TS. What internal work are you doing to the motor?

The engine has over sized valves, grinded cams, ported head, high comp pistons, H beam rods, race bearings. It's pretty much blue printed including balancing the rotating assembly and WPC coating on the critical components. Pictures show the spare engine used for mock up purposes.

Negative. Car will get a front tube frame to accomodate all supporting components.

Trial and error. Race it, fix it. Repeat.

Very interested to see how the TS performs for you, I wasn't aware the 6758 had a TS option that was actually available finally!

I was going to do the 7163 TS but changed the plan to do the 6758 TS for a direct A-B comparison on a vvt motor. The whole for science and data thing.

This is very interesting. Exciting actually.
I don't like the turbo placement, but everything else sounds really intense.

They are manufactured by Elmer Racing. Also, known for manufacturing full billet engines for WRC and WTAC (Thor)
