So just a minor update. We dyno-ed the engine at LME couple of days ago, albeit we used the wrong injectors to test it, but still was decent (used 630cc instead of the 1050x). I feel that it made decent torque at appropriate rpm (trying to maintain traction), objective of overall power under the curve is achieved (not aiming at peak power) and fingers crossed increased reliability and sustainability of operation of the engine is there. we ll rev it up to 7500 to be safe. We ll add the E85 and the nos kit once I ve tested and run the engine for 2-3 months on pump gas only. (and yes engine was designed/built and rings were gapped so that nos can be added safely and account for heat expansion effect).
Finalizing ordering last remaining parts to complete all the mechanical and cooling aspects next week and then its a matter of shipping everything to Pat G in Victoria. He will tune the car and fix all curves nice and flat and he also gave me a really good quote on the engine swap so I am thinking to use him for everything.
Some on going discussion concerning the oil and coolant cooling capability of the engine because the introduction of the very good improved racing oil kit blocks a significant amount of air from the aftermarket dewitts radiator. Thinking to get either 2 smaller oil coolers and place them behind the fog lights (and eliminate the fog lights) or place it in horizontally and in parallel to the ground...the first options seems the better but need to verify my thoughts.
Track specific mods will be done immediately after I get the car back (brakes F/R, seats, harness, wheels, harness bar, aero).
In the mean time, TDE and members day on MSRH for November
