Right - decided on cast manifold, tubular a struggle to remain in tact for 6 hour race from previous experience.

Turbo choice.

GT2860R or GTX equiv.

If you go cast, you will want to get 8mm Inconel studs from Full Race or the big 10mm Inconel ones from Trackspeed Engineering (which will require opening up the holes and tapping them for larger studs). Our little engines seem to be tough on the standard street studs on the track and they fail with regularity.

So far...

Wiseco pistons and eagle H beam rods - on route.

Ordered today from FM the rest of the kit we will need.

Waiting on GTX2860R Turbo, intercooler, and oil cooler...

oh and a few bits from the ECU.

I'll post some pics as I get stuff in the shop.

Pistons and rods are nice

Any thoughts on camshafts, looks like people just use pulleys and stick with OE??

With the price we can get the GT2560R at, we went for that one, as it looks like next year we may be building a 2.0 turbo, into a BRAND NEW SHELL that we have here.

2560R is now here, and being stripped to be modified, block is in machining having the bottom end sorted, crank, pistons, rods, flywheel and clutch all being balanced up. Just waiting on a large parcel from FM now

Going with standard cams, as the power we wont just doesn't require anything more, looking at the timings, also, we want to get this out for testing on the 8th december, I am fininishing up today with the front end seam welding and prep for engine bay paint.

That is all for now!
