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.

The car will need serious aero to stay on the ground through esses and over hilltops.  Beating the Viper ACR is a reasonable goal.

Woohoo!  My wife just let me sign us up for the 2-day charity event at Daytona on 4/14 and 4/15.  My friends Andy and Lyn Butler from UK are visiting us that week.  Andy is an instructor for UK police chase drivers.  They use M5s to train their officers.  This will be cool!   :)

2016 is going to be a great year! awesome build goals

looking forward to your progress, even if its 750... that's going to be super fun on the track.

I'm most interested in the aero aspect of your project.

Dude, 750 is going to be plain scary. Need some serious driver mods to compensate! ;-)

Yup.  I love KMAN's setup.  He's got a custom GT3-like front splitter with aluminum supports, etc., canards, and a monster wing.  Here's a rear shot.  That's me talking to him.

Welp, I couldn't resist a sale that Jim found on GT-R Classifieds.  It's a Kognition wing and trunk ready to plug and play.  The picture here is before the trunk was CF wrapped.  When it arrives next week, I'll add it to the list of mods.  In the meantime, I'll be dreaming about it like the sugar plums in Night Before Christmas.

Yeah the endplates look a little dumb, too small to do much.  But easy to change. :)

Hehe, I don't need no stinkin' end plates.  It ain't no 747.  Edit: But seriously, they are quite refined.  Not huge, but adhere to the zigzag standard that the DBA headlights, and body sculpting follow.  Okay, that's a stretch but... work with me on this.  I really like it.  Especially since I bought it.

Hehe fair enough! Easy to experiment with either way. Pretty sure there is a reason kman runs proper ones. (which also look awesome imho)
