I ran the built motor with the same 19T, exhaust and tune I had before but never heard the sound of detonation. I beat the shit outta this thing for almost 3 years but I wanted more.
The new setup:
Balanced rotating assembly
3 angle valve job
850 T5-R flywheel
Spec stage 3+ clutch
S60R exhaust manifold
GT35R (.63/.70 A/R)
Precision 600hp intercooler
2.5" intercooler piping
3" turbo back exhaust
Siemens 630cc injectors (saturated)
Tial 40mm wastegate
Tial 50mm blow off valve
Nira i3+ EMS
a few pics from the build..
The car is off the road for the winter turbo upgrade http://volvospeed.co...IR#/biggrin.gif
19T was the first to come off, as was the stock IC and the BSR exhaust.
19T and GT35R:
Precision intercooler mocked up:
S60R manifold and new turbo mocked up. The turbo will end up sitting higher as I only had 8mm studs to mount it and the hole in the turbine flange and a fair size larger.
It's close to the mount, but like i said, it will sit a bit higher after final install.
I had originally planned on having a tubular exhuast manifold made, but ended up using the S60R manifold to save myself some headaches. I still wanted to run the external wastegate so I switched over to a 5 bolt turbine.
Installed the Innovate WB02 and XD16 gauge:
Siemens 630cc injectors:
New coolant lines and fittings:
GT install kit. I'm hoping I will luck out and be able to use the stock return line, but we'll see.
Oil feed setup:
Next step is to run the IC piping and drop in the NA cams. The 3" exhaust/external wastegate setup is being fabbed locally after I get all this other stuff done.
Tuning.. yes I know someone's going to ask... is still up in the air. Nira is a possibility if the budget permits.
I currently have a dualmass flywheel and spec stage III clutch installed. I have purchased a T5R singlemass flywheel but am still on the hunt for a good clutch. I will stick with the dualmass for a while and just keep the boost down until I can find a clutch and get my hands on a LSD. That way, it can all be done at once and then I can crank the boost up.
Updating this with some new pics since the last half of my thread got lost.
