It's been a long time coming. I kind of neglected the GTR for awhile and started to get into road racing and messing around with Porsches. The parts had been all ready and sitting here for over half a year, but I finally flew out Zack - a technician who built my stuff at English Racing but now part owner at  PRE Racing - to come install everything. I'm glad I flew him out because the plumbing was ridiculous with an A2W and a dry sump. It only took 5 days from zero work done until the car fired up. Now I'm really surprised now how shops can keep cars for over a year. 

 

This build consists of:

ETS / English Racing "Little Sidekick" turbo kit (6466 Vband with cast manifolds)

ER built 4.1 with Mahle pistons and RR alum rods
3.5" Intakes, VTA dump tubes, Wastegated Y-Pipe

English Racing mechanical fuel pump setup. Keeps OEM in-tank pumps for priming and start up. Flex fuel sensor on fuel return line.

AT/AJ air to water IC with heat exchanger. 

"Regular" routing of the IC pipe from the turbo outlet (doesn't go through the frame). If I had a great fab guy I would have elected to go thru the frame.

Magnus dry sump

* Keeps AC, PS, Radio

Shep stage 5 but with 11/11 clutches not 12/12

Motec M1, 6 EGT's, 2 backpressure sensors.

All other ancillary supporting mods like axles, blah blah

 

Goal is 1600whp at 40-42 psi. I'm hoping to hit high 2's 60-130mph and 100-150mph.

 

Why use aluminum rods? Honestly I debated this for a long time and still don't have a clear answer. It's like a trade off - do I try to protect the bearings or the rods? In the end I'm just gambling that I need the bearing protection more, and that other things will fail at 1600whp before the aluminum rods heat cycle out. 

I think I'm going to love the A2W IC in this tropical heat. I've seen logs of it and it's pretty damn awesome even without putting in ice.

The dry sump means the oil cooler is relocated in front of trans cooler. Not ideal for trans cooling but better than no trans cooler at all. I'd have to watch trans temps more carefully.

Lotta sensors!

It lives!!

 

Next up will be tuning, which I'm still trying to figure out.

Hoses. Hoses everywhere! You need to draw that up in Visio or something to keep it straight. I did that for my steering system in the rockcrawler and that was only about 60-80' of hose.

Yeah the plumbing was seriously no joke. All those big AN lines running back and forth... it was a super tight fit for sure.

Don't know since it's not tuned yet. For sure ideally the filters are sitting outside, but man the fit is already so tight.

 

With the A2W I don't expect the intake temps to be bad despite the filter being inside the engine bay.

Are you located in Taiwan? Just curious as I remember some mention of it a while back.

I travel to Kaohsiung regularly.

My company buys a good amount of carbon steel pipe in Taiwan. One of our main sources.

Besides business, I really love Taiwan as a country and culture.

My fiancé is Taiwanese... (American born)

I'll be in Taipei in October. Maybe we can meet for a drink. I can see your GTR.

I think it's safe to say you have the fastest car in the country.

Just waiting to get tuned.

 

A12 I sold it. I wanted more power. It's such a different setup because 1) it needs a lot of fuel, and triple pumps just wouldn't do 2) oil pressure at big power and high rpm was dipping even on a12 3) I liked the idea of of a a2w I/C after seeing the logs of IAT's with them. That's why so many things had to change even for 400 more hp.
