After these pics, it's only natural to want some video.

Sam, he's running Motec and 1600 cc injectors IIRC. He has more in his engine management than you will have in your entire build.

I wonder if "he" would give us any idea what it cost to build a car like this outside of the car price itself? $18k?

You need to do an advanced search using his name. Built head, 2.0L stroker, huge fuel system, massive turbo with tubular manifold, huge IC and lots of boost. There's so much to it that there is no point in me attempting to type it out.

Great to see another NB as most here seem to be running an NA. But then considering your level of modification NA versus NB is really only skin deep at best LOL.

Oxygenated race fuel is some really expensive stuff. There are a few that I race with (bikes, not cars) that use it for sprint racing.

Very nice car. E85 is available here so I have thought it would be cool to set mine up to run both E85 and 93 pump a-la different maps.

So I noticed your breather system for the crankcase. Looks like you have a catch tank with a level indicator? I can see one of the two hoses running to the valve cover, where doe the other one connect? I looked at your other threads and did not see a description, sorry if I missed it.

I'm setting up for the same thing. From what i'm reading you need injectors that are roughly 40% larger than what you need for Dino fuel.

Thanks for all of the comments guys. Yes, E85 fuel takes much larger of an injector to compensate for the burn rate. I was at 100% duty cycle on 1000cc
injectors at 433 hp with E85. Thats why I switched to the 1600s.

O and the catch can vents to the atmosphere.

How in the hell are you idling 1600s? Does the Motec have some absurd idle resolution?

Yeah i'd like to know this too. Are they saturated or peak hold injectors?
