A place to log my progress with the car. Now that I finally have the engine issues fixed and have a datalog setup, I can start seriously tuning it.
Currently has a stock 2.5 SOHC 8v turbo w/ a stock 2-piece intake, ported exhaust manifold, stock Garrett T3, FWD-P F3 cam, Wiseco pistons, full 3" turbo-back exhaust w/ a high-flow cat and a resonator, and a basic air-water intercooler setup. Poly motor mounts all round. Fuel system is a Walbro 255 and 58pph injectors. Trans is a 523/568 hybrid w/ 3.77 FD and an OBX posi unit, also has a FWD-P 4-puck clutch. Also have a socketed computer w/ a chip extender to easily switch out chips when I burn them. Brakes are the stock 11" vented stuff.
Best time so far is a email@example.com in the 8th mile. Unfortunately there is not a 1/4 mile track anywhere close to me.
Plan is to max the stock engine on the AWIC, then start upgrading. F3 cam will be coming out and be replaced by a stock cam for a while (have the F3 traded out for some custom work on solid 3.0 V6 rockers I'm developing). Once I reach limit of the current setup, I will add a reservoir/ice box to the AWIC setup and see how far that goes. Then I will change the turbo and/or cam again, then it will get a ported head w/ beehive springs and +1mm valves.
Also looking forward to running it in the mountains some this year
