I have been asked by a couple of guys to put a little build thread together. I don't have a lot of pictures of it, but basically, my block is now filled with a stronger rotating assembly, topped with heads that have been ported and polished, and matched with an almost new set of SIR Stage 3+ turbos. I ran out of money to finish with a 3-pump Foreline fuel system or upgraded lines, rails, and injectors. Nor can I do clutches or any trans work this time around. Aero is also next year. I plan to go with the same setup as Kman.
Bill at SIR is going to de-tune it to around 750 WHP / 600 TQ on pump gas and will provide 2 maps - one for road racing, optimized for lots of high RPMs for extended periods of time, and another for just having fun on the street once in a while. We agreed that I wouldn't run E85 until such time the car has a proper fuel setup. But 750 should be plenty of fun on the road course. There also won't be much money left in the budget for many track events this year. I'm signed up with SCDA for July 18 and 19 Watkins Glen, so if anyone wants to get in on that action, join SCDA at www.scda1.com and sign up for one or both days.
Another interesting thing is that with this motor, my gas mileage, already at around 3.5 MPG at the track, will drop to 3 or less. That means that the car will barely manage a 25-minute session before it's out of fuel. So we will be talking about installing a big (30-40 gal) fuel cell for next year for when it starts making some REAL power. Based on the internals of the motor and the turbos, the car should make around 950 on pump gas.
Thanks to JimA and Audioenvy for their help, inspiration and some other "odds and ends, lol". Thanks to Bill for coming up with the best solution for my budget, and a special thanks to Marco at Billet Design Motorsports, who is absolutely obsessive about doing things the right way.
