I know a C&C Import that is in East Valo. It imports European cars into Asia and US. Try calling it at 1-483-CCIMPORT

How did you squeeze 570bhp out of a 2.8 N/A engine?

I picked up some spacers today. Everything is line with the fenders but I won't say it's anything worth staring at. 13mm at the front, 25mm at the rear. I also got a diagnostic and cleaned the injectors. I guess you can say the car runs a bit better now.

# shaforostov : How did you squeeze 570bhp out of a 2.8 N/A engine?
Formula One engines were 800bhp out of a 3.0 N/A engine for a long time. :troll:

Not saying that anything near that level is possible with an N/A L28 - getting 500HP out of an L series motor in any spec is incredibly impressive, and I'd think it would require forced induction - but you could get that much power out of that sized engine, if you had near-impossible cylinder head flow rates and could rev the crap out of the car. Your idle characteristics and torque would probably be awful, though - you couldn't use it as a street motor.

(Speaking more in SLRR terms, it's likely that the "L28" in question is a Baiern_Emer standard engine with the D Speed parts, which could have ridiculously awesome camshaft specs for N/A builds.)

So after I put all the trim back on, I finally can say: It's done! The first stop I had was my buddy who has the turbocharged Golf MK2. Towed the car until I was a block away, put on Avicii - Levels and was hooning in front of his house. He came out and was like "WTF?!" and he had to resocket his eyes. He really likes the car and the whole Idea of putting a rotary in it. Then I went to Haku to run this thing on the dyno. He loves the scream of that rotary at full throttle. But enough talk; PICTURES! LOTS OF THEM!


Since everyone loves the Borbets: SIDESHOT!



This is the dyno sheet: Remember, it has peripheral ported rotor housings, a larger intercooler and a modified ECU.


Also got this 1999 Ford Transit diesel as my new shop truck. It is registred as a corporate car. Plus a used car trailer since the Transit has a trailer hitch.

For 6000$ i bought this FC3S (Mazda Rx7 89'), Its just a rolling chassis wich

So my plans of picking up a MX5 didnt happen. I was going to look at a mariner blue one yesterday but it was sold once I got to his place which pissed me off. I told the dude to keep it til I saw it. With a bad mood I remember I had a plan B aswell.

I knew of a guy who was selling his 1989 Foxbody Mustang. Unfortunately not running. It needs a whole lot of new parts including a new alternator, starter, carburetor, head gaskets amongst other things. Felt like a dumb move to buy it but I did!

Here it is!



What are my plans? To drift it hard like I would do to an MX5 if I picked one up :D

But first I need to sort out the issues of the engine. Make sure its healthy for whats to come. If anyone knows of someone who might have the following parts let me know:

Starter
Alternator
Headgaskets
Ignition distributor
Waterpump
Cooling fan

These are the parts I know needs replacing at the moment. There are probably boatload of things that needs replacing but I wont do them, only the bare essentials to get the car running and somewhat of a good car at the track. Plans are to keep it a low cost build but knowing me that will change :D

I got news about the FC!

I Bought an 13B N/A rotary engine pumping exactly 217hp.

When it arrived i started immediately putting the engine
in the car.



Once i got it running i immediately started
to hoon the shit out of the car, it was a blast! XD



I painted the car black.
I also ended up rebuilding the exhaust ( It was leaking like HELL )



A accident also occured...

Wait. I just realized: I made a typo on the power. I meant to type 340 and somehow came out with 570. The worse part, is that I didn't notice until now.

I like the idea of putting a modern engine + suspension into an older car so I want to do something like that as well. Possible is:

Golf MK3 with Golf MK6 GTI tech (Finding the engine + DSG trans will be tricky)
'71 Camaro with LS3 and modern suspension
70's Corolla with a more modern Toyota engine that has EFI (maybe a 4A-GE blacktop or silvertop) + new suspension

Hahaha, i like the humour on vstanced

Anyways i got AMAZING news on FC3S!

I replaced the muffler to a better sounding one instead of a chrome pipe.

I also installed a turbo on the 13B, the engine now make 554hp straight to the wheels.

Im diggin that Golf idea and the Corolla idea... I may sell these vehicles I do as one offs or take custom orders. Im considering looking at BMW next though. Maybe the new twin turbo 3.0 from the F80 and suspension into an older E30?

Thanks man I would surly recommend them if you want to eventually run a wider rim and tire. I got mine for the primary purpose of cutting out rust and eventually wider tires because drift car. Speaking of drift car, I got my hydro brake from enjuku racing today and ordered a recaro because I love the way they feel in my evo.

I'm currently working on strengthing the frame on the Minto. I'm genuenly not sure if the stock frame can take the torque from the V8. That, and I need to change out the gears in the diff. It's currently just an open diff, pretty basic, but strong. I'm gonna install a Ford Racing FR500S. Its a T2-R type torsion differential. Bias Ratio of 4.0, and its 31 spline. This mutha is gonna FLY, so damn fast. I need to go and get some new gauges, because the original gauge only goes to 85 mph. I need something a little higher xD I'm thinking somewhere in the 180 range, like the 2010 Camaro SS.

I am actually leaning more to the Corolla. Maybe we can make it our speciality? Modernizing older cars with components from newer models? I also like your idea of modernizing a BMW. I thought of a M635i but they are kinda hard to find.

Well, imported this instead of the Polo. Reasons being it comes in left hand drive, and was cheaper. I'm butchering it to turn it into a rally car, so functionally it should act the same as the Polo.

Suby UPDATE
Till now all the parts arived and i got a few other things that i bought in town.The Nardi wheel and the JDM headlights were finaly shiped and i bought rear camber kit and a set of carbon covers for the fog lights.Everything is mounted and the wagon is driven every day without any problems.Oh yeah, and she is fully droped, i went the lowest i could with the coills.It rubs a bit but only on heavy bumps.The Summer can come! :D









Cressy UPDATE
The cressy was now for a long time sitting arround and wasnt driven 2 much, and i kinda looked at her and thought if i refresh her a bit i might drive more offten with her.Soooo, she is getting some new stuff and some love right now.Wont reveal to much but i hope i will drive often with her after the refresh. :-X

Well, here is an update on the Gol Rallycar. I added a spoiler and some rims from Fifteen52. The bodykit and suspension should come soon. While I wait for those, I'm going to start looking for an engine to put in this thing.

It's just the Rescripted Devil's V8 found HERE. Also, sad news IRL. The engine went pop in my trusty Solara after 215,000 miles, and found a buyer for her. $600 cash, and he hauled her home. Lives in Illinois, so not too far, but I recorded the entire loading up and everything and will post it in the "Real life cars" thread and here once I get my old ass phone to connect to my new ass computer.

@DXG I'd like to stick with the old name XD

I found this odd little '77 Corolla KE30 on the junkyard. It's a USDM model but someone converted it to RHD for a reason beyond me. Has no engine and trans. Some windows are busted and the seats are in horrible condition. It's also missing the hood, grille and headlights + taillights. Rust is mostly under the paint and under the car; Can't really see it in the pics but you have to believe me here. I think I'll go for a 4A-GE Silvertop or Blacktop, whatever I find first. I also think that Watanabes will look good on this one.

Started tackling some bodywork the last couple of days. There were rust in several areas and still are. I mainly focused on the rear lights since that bothered me the most. I had to go apeshit with the grinder at some areas but luckily most of it was surfacerust. So I cut and welded in the new metal and then applied some bondo to fill out the bumps and make it flat and somewhat nice again. Wont be nice until I spray some paint over it which most likely wont happen in the near future. As I've said before this was meant as sort of a missile/driftslut so I dont feel the need to do that ATM.

Enough talking here is some before and after pics!



I also removed the speedhunters logo, nothing against them but I didnt fit IMO, and instead threw on a hoonigan sticker.


I went through the car and discoverd that all four shocks are leaking which sucks. Gives me an excuse to get rid of them aswell as the lowering springs. About the springs, one of previous owners only installed lowering springs in the front for some reason. This leaves me with gay rideheight in the front and even more gay in the rear... cant wait to sort that out!

As far as the engine goes I am constantly on Valolist and Ubay(Cheesy AF I know) looking for parts. I bought an alternator aswell as a starter from one guy who claims they are in working condition. That's all he said. He seemed to be a nice guy and he told me I'd get my money back if they dont work. Ultimately I would like to find a donor engine for a reasonably good price and swap parts from it but my main objective is to make the current engine run!
