paint looks great man
Thanks anti, its not 100% but I hadn't sprayed for a couple years so I'm pretty happy with it. The representative for the paint company did the right thing by me and supplied me with enough paint to do the repairs but ill get it back on the road and get some kms on it before I bother, its not overly noticeable until your a couple foot away
Always is far more work than you ever could imagine but the end result will be worth it and you will have gained valuable knowledge along the way. Can't wait to see it.
Yeah can't wait to get it back on the road
More info on the lifted rolls royce in the first few photos please!
I'm sure I've seen that car previously in Street Machine a few years back, sitting on a Patrol chassis with a small block chev if I'm not mistaken?
Z32 looks great also, I'm not a yellow kinda guy but that is tops.
Just an old Bush banger, setup on a jeep wagoneer chassis and drivetrain. My mates first rolls Royce and he never wanted to sell it so he did this lol
OK, so a very long time between drinks..... Engine is now nearly completed. Heads have had a mild port and polish, engine is fully studded and forged throughout, JWT R4 cams, bde intake gears, z1 exhaust gears, gt28r 2560 turbos, custom top feed rails, 1000CC id Injectors, plenum deletes, customised plenum and throttle linkages to still allow cruise control fitment, custom balance pipe setup, etc...... Unfortunately taken so long due to all the fun things life throws in our way but finally nearing completion. Rebuilt master cylinder, rebuilt R34 front brake upgrade, rebuilt rears, dbr slotted front/rear rotors. Have fitted a walbro 485 for ethanol, still need to upgrade pump wiring, Turbosmart fpr, ethanol sensor, relocated fuel filter and sensor including lines under the front passenger wheel well behind the guard, hks twin spark amplifier with custom harness I made and s2 ptu and new oem coils, will be fitting my ams 2.5" intake kit with Selin dual maf setup, twin catch cans being fitted, one for exhaust can covers to pcvs, one from intake covers to intake, ams/mungzy coolant tank on its way, setting up custom washer tank under nose panel to free airflow to driver intercooler and r33 carbon canister fitted to free airflow to passenger intercooler. nistune has been modded for flex fuel and launch control. Still have to fit Upgraded front/rear stillen sway bars and adjustable link arms. Rims are off at powder coating getting Matt blacked and will get a nice tasteful thin yellow pinstripe.
So has been progressing, hoping to have it on the road and start running in before October. Aiming for a comfortable 500HP atw and I will be happy with that.... Breathe...
That all looks and sounds awesome !!
The single walbro should just cover your needs.
No valve work?
I'd be curious to see what you dial the cam gears to, I only have bde intakes.
Keeping the stock fuel line size and stepping up at the bde top feeds?
All sounds pretty sweet and on e85 uou should make 500rwhp comfortably
It's actuallya custom rail that tek built for his race car, I modified it to -6 in/out. 8mm whole way through, might need to upgrade size but will wait to see how the tune on it is. 17psi Garrett bent arms off of 2871rs. A lot of this is off Martin's old race car, he was pushing 550HP on 98 so should be comfortable between 450-550hp. We will see
So did you run new lines from the tank forwards? Or are the stock lines close to -6?
I can't remember!
Looks like a strong setup either way!!
Please post results and dyno and information like timing etc if you can
Stock lines still from tank, they are -5 equivalent so not a major size difference, 8mm Vs 8.7mm.
Yeah I'll have an update hopefully finished and dynoed by October, at least that's the goal I have set for myself lol
Hey that's same time I hope my new set up is ready and tuned by too haha
Like what is done to the balance tube and associated lines at the back. Nice work.
Same, also really like the full blackout treatment. Simple, neat, tidy.
So little update, upgraded swaybars and subframe collars fitted, rims finished and fitted, just waiting on a small order from Rob for gaskets and my ghetto copy defi link zd system to arrive from eBay so I can finish off motor/bay wiring and install, but finally at that stage where this.....
Is finally going to meet this....
And hopefully fingers crossed, the planets align and my engine doesn't dismally explode when I turn the key and I finally get to tune and ****ing well drive this thing, only taken two plus years now
Certainly come a long way from the day I bought it and got to drive it a grand total of two days and 60kms
So lifes got busy as usual. Cars plans took a major change when i started realising i cant realistically have a track car and a street car atm so the poor zed is now going to be doing both, mainly hill climb, sprint and speed events if its on track.
First decision was to now go manual with z1 twin plate clutch, rebuilt shifter, 350z upgrade fork etc..
Ive had a custom bolt in cams spec half cage manufactured by a local guy who does a lot of drift cars.
Decided to step up my game with the engine again so now have gone to gen2 gtx2860 turbos, only issue is the ****ing passenger wastegate actuator is hitting hard up on the chassis rail. Gcg hopefully have an answer for me on this one otherwise im left with making a new custom bracket or scalloping out the chassis for clearance, but by Christ they are a tight fit regardless.
Will be running haltech platinum pro p&p ecu with dual wideband.
1300cc injectors, 1/2 inch fuel lines supply/return from the custom aluminium fuel tank with integral surge box inside with staged twin walbro 485 and a 255 lift pump, 8an fuel reg and 1250-1300cc injectors. Custom fuel rail has been modded again for single -8an feed and return. Rgs performance 3" dumps, rob z throttle bodies, japtek mammoth coolers, 2.5 inch intakes and boost pipes, veilside evo catback (still not 100% sure on this one, i really prefer quad tips). Once turbos are sorted ill pull everything hotside related and get ceramic coated to keep the heat down.
Ended up fitting up tein edfc active system to suspension and im exploring the option of using johns UAS street version FUCA with correct shimming for street duties so i can just swap shims in/out for street/track purposes, along with one of his front suspension braces.
Picked up a brand new sparco evo 2 plus drivers seat for a song so thats going on manual rails for the track.
It will be finished (well back on the road, lets be honest they are never finished) THIS YEAR. Taken up to much of my life ans with young kids im missing out on a lot, so hope to throw the wife and the midgets in for cruising.
Looks the goods!
Cheers mike, im getting there. Those bose boxes fitted in schmick thanks. Funny how i went from maybe using your old surge box, to modding the factory tank too, oh **** it, custom tank.
Cool! I thought it was strange in one of your pics there was a bose box on one side with no speaker, and a plain speaker on the other side!
Who is doing your tank? There are some good options for off the shelf these days, but I have never measured to see what is involved.
