Every year I fall into some kind of depression when the winter arrives... I just can't do anything with my car (reason for late update)... I hate the winter!!

Well, today I just had to do something.
I had ordered some custom made parts to the front lower controll arm, so I decided to put the pieces together.

The result (not welded yet):

You're probably suffering from Season Affective Disorder (SAD). This is related to the diminished daylight that occurs during the wintertime, and is much more common in northern areas. Treatment for it consists of exposing your eyes to a bright light source for about 30 minutes a day (SAD light). Upgrading the lighting in your home may not be a bad idea either.

We're here for you, and always want to see more updates of your project! :D

*lol* :)

12000 rpm should work, but to be safe this engine will be tuned up to maximum 10000...

As much money as he is putting into the car I don't think that he will have a problem getting 9500 to 10k out of that motor.

As long as you have enough money you can do anything.

You can fix that with some cams and porting... :wink:

First I need to decide at wich rpm I want the peak of the power curve. Then I know wich cams I need, length of intake runners, etc. All these things together with the result of the porting of the head gives you a clue how much power you'll be able to reach. We are aiming at about 400..

The engine that I originally built to this car has it's peak at 6690 rpm (285 hp), but playes along just fine up to 8000+ rpm. In this case it's all about wich cams I'm using, and how they are adjusted. Of course I'm using an aftermarket ECU.

The old engine runs with a Haltech E6K..

To the new engine I will get an ECU called VEMS

Formerly known as megasquirtAVR.
The VEMS is one kick-ass ECU. The power of open source is as apparent there as anywhere else. You can't get a commercial ECU to match it for under $3000

Just out of interest.....Which is better.....

1. Getting the oem ECU re-mapped

2. Putting in a chip?


PS: Runbag..its gona b a little Weapon of Mass Destruction!!!
Great engineering goin on up there!

A Drift Swift sounds great!!
Keep up the good work.

I think a fast swift sounds a lot better than a drift swift. To have a drift car just takes bad suspension, limited handling and no traction. You can drift in a 100hp car.

Thank you :)

No I have no experience about it myself, but a friend of mine knows more or less all about it. He installs those ECU:s for a living..

I've wondered for a while how the ECU from a GT(i) would work for a t3...... it would limit you @ ~11k then too, lol.

Today I've bought a BMW motorsport rear axle from Z3 M.

45% LSD, 2.93:1 gear ratio, and a big cooler.

I will change the gears from 2.93:1 to 4.10:1 to make it fit better for both track and strip.

Probably I'll also build another axle with the 2.93:1 gears just to make some high speed tests. Theoretically at 10000 rpm it will make 385 km/h (240 mph) at fourth gear. Well.., theoretically of course ;)

Today my new turbo arrived :D :D

It's a Garret GT2650R, and the specs says that it should be capable to up to 385 hp. The only thing is that my goal is to reach higher than that, and actually there is a way around it. By not using the internal wastegate, and use an bigger external wastegate instead, I can release enough exhaust gases to be able to reach above 400 hp. You know, what comes in, must go out...
