Anyone know off hand the peak torque that common aftermarket rods are good for by the way?

From what I remember of a recent thread, 1.6 stock rods are good to around 200 ft/lbs, and the common aftermarket rods have not been known to fail. You'll be grenading other things like pistons, transmissions, diffs, oil pumps, clutches, etc. well before you run into issues with the rods.

All of which I'm fairly certain will be upgraded anyways.

Just an interesting thought to see if I can break 1000NM at the wheels measured in 1:1 gear.

It's kinda like a ft lb but easier to hit 1000 in.

Just an attempt to get it in the factory location or damned close.

It will look amazingly OEM tucked up in a stock location like that and HOPEFULLY will leave room for the a/c. It clear the power steer as it sits. It will also mean the downpipe clears the shelf totally and be very straight forward.

It may end up around 1cm further from the block, in this instance its about 1mm away.

In a country with ridiculously harsh unreasonable laws regarding modified cars i think this is best.

If you could get a factory heat sheild to go on top it would make it look legit stock. Im sure you could find a reasonably well fitting one from the wreckers. Just an idea.

Manifold is finished and I'm starting the exhaust.



I'm on a phone I hope that worked.

So it has a reroute I made, and the thermostat is in the back of the head with a 4mm hole in it., stock front cover welded only no spacer (no heater).



Then it has a stock pump with no blades on it, and the Craig Davies EWP80 that you can see in the pics feeding into a stock, flipped and welded lower water inlet.

I like what you did there with the sensors and what not in the re route pipe. Totally epic. Looks badass. Can't wait to see the finished product.

All that and you're keeping the stock fan switch? Isn't this on MS or something similar?

It is on an MS2, I have no idea if that fan switch does anything at all. Doesnt hurt to sit there though. I make a few reroutes similar to this so I have the bungs just sitting around.

By the way, this was the engine bay before I got to the car.



And a shot of the up pipe mid fabrication.



In the above post showing the reroute you can see the BOV recirc pipe also, in stainless behind the rad.

Good stuff as usual Dann.

Just wondering about the blow off recirc placement. Wouldn't it be easier to fit on the hot side?

FYI, no, the fan switch doesn't do anything. It uses the green connector sensor to activate the fans at any temperature you want, as opposed to the stock one, which turns at one set temperature.

Re blow off valve placement: do you mean moving it across so it goes straight from outlet to inlet? The old setup had it configured like this so I simply left the design the same to save half an hour.

Thanks curly, that was my understanding of it also.

Ok guys need an answer by tomorrow or I just go for it.

Is it acceptable to have the turbo outlet pipe inches away from the manifold?

The manifold will have 3 layers of ceramic coating and I can get this pipe coated too if need be.

Im concerned only about the amount of heat transfer that could happen in 6 inches of pipe, it feels silly to ask and the answer i expect is that the air will be in it for a few hundredths of a second so just do it but im asking anyway.







Also most people go straight up from the 38mm opening of the 2560 straight to 2", its ok to go up to 1.75" for 6 inches then go to 2"? You can see pretty clearly the silicone pipe it needs to make it to, it will take 2x 90*'s to get there.

Here is the other option and routing. Able to go straight up to 2" off here.



Also heres some new build pics.'









I swear i got some good ones of the welds up close but they all turned out blurry on my phone, Ill get some extra tomorrow.
