The ducting is awesome! I'm running with mat 15 over ambient (35+ celsius) and coolant 85 cruising and 95 driving hard... never be so cold, even this winter!
Only big difference is the undertray, it's the first time I installed one.

C6 coils are arrived with pigtails, just bought the spark wires too

Installed:








Now the afr's turned from low 11 to mid 13, retuned and now the duty is 87% in boost... I think I must stop here, until I can take a set of ID1000

VD done on pure LPG, without any gasoline injection. Consider that before 4000 the clutch slipped a little bit, but in my opinion it's a great result!

This week I opened the engine, everything was fine, no signs of det on the pistons, just very dirty because of the supertech rings

Crankshaft was balanced with pulley, flywheel and clutch. Rod bearings are good, but the mains have to be changed with std ones

oil pump machined to accomodate billet gears




Detailing made by a friend (thanks again!!)






time to open the engine! Notice the dark inside of the intake manifold... too much overlap! I have to reduce it.






rod bearings






going to the machine shop




done!




the reason why mains are to be changed



and why the rod bearings are good




pistons before cleaning



almost cleaned




Gutting the intake for the skunk2








ARP bolts arrives next week, around 2-3 hours to close the engine and I can begin the break-in!

If I tilt the pans 45 degrees, the one with baffles stays full of oil near the pickup tube, the oem one is almost empty

It will feel like time for something else to break.

What's the point of a built engine if you don't make over 400 whp?

The breack-in is finally ended!
sadly I ran out of fuel (100%dc) at 29 psi, but I can see the potential
now it spins 4th with standard tyres

VD said 408hp, it's really impressive!
I think it's time to stop here, even if the boost duty is 68%

First problem: blown head gasket
At idle it runs on 3 cylinders, smokes white and burns coolant
When I installed the head with arp's I scretched the head surface on the arp's, that's the only reason it comes in my mind

Could also be that you're simply running more boost than you should be. I know on my car, we could make more boost but couldn't make more power. Something to keep in mind.

Really should get it on a proper dyno with the power and boost levels you're running.

I just ordered cometic HG, since I was using the ebay one, and AEM WI noozle, pump and everything else I need to run safer and with moar boost

AEM calculations said that if I use 50-50 water methanol the afr reading is a point richer than real, so if I run 11.5:1 I have to read 10.5:1
is it right?

VD log, red is 15 psi, blue 30 psi. Consider that the torque is in Nm, not in Ft pound
