Yep they are forged ones. I made sure when Darren built me the 1.9 engine it was made to take the nitrous. I'd planned on putting about 75 through it (I have a progressive controller). Given the nitrous should cool the charge a bit it should equate to about a 100bhp increase. That'll mean 350bhp and nearly 330lbft through the G60 drivetrain. Even with the VR6 clutch in there I get the feeling it wont last long. I also think the fuel pump will need upgrading. Thankfully the nitrous controller has a digital fuel pressure sensor as part of it.

porsche reg 3.5bar

Putting it bluntly!

Yes its a wet kit Laughing, so wont need all that, but the increased fuel demand will probably mean the exisiting pump wont cope. After all it will be trying to deliver fuel for 350bhp when it was originally designed for 160.

Actually I don't know - it has been on since the engine was rebuilt so I have nothing to compare it to. From looking back over my old charts though (from the old engines) I saw no more peak boost it just came on earlier.

Did a neater version of my boost rerouting yesterday. Used one of Revotec self sealing takeoff hose adapters. If you've never seen these before they seem to be a very useful way of customising hoses and would be good for things like dump valves etc. Bit fiddly to do perhaps, but alot easier than getting a custom made hose.

Looks nice and tidy. Revotech seem like a bloody good supplier.

Yeah it does look neat. I got it from Burton Power, oddly in a size I couldn't find on the Revotech website (19mm diameter). Seems like such a good idea for modders. Having to punch a hole in your prize silicone pipes may put people off though (punch is a one use item and comes with the fitting).

Are they very expensive? I wouldn't be too excited about cutting my nice shiny pipe, but I guess you've just got to do it.

Dave did mention a place he knew that makes up custom pipes, no idea how expensive they were though, but I did wonder how much it would be to get a batch of VR6 PCV pipes made up.

The adapter was about £22 posted mate. A lot cheaper than a custom hose, but still a bit odd when you cut your nice new silicone pipe...

Spend a couple of hours driving sideways on the way back down south on boxing day Laughing. Then I need to stop procrastinating and just get on with fitting the nos. Also want to modify the current instrument cluster a bit as well - do away with the white decals for the oil, water, main beams etc and make them transparent so they only light up when the bulbs are on, I think I'll relocate the ABS light to there as well.

A set of these turned up today Very Happy
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
7x17 Oz Ultraleggera with 205/40 R888 tyres. Will be kept until it is a bit warmer (drier). They are ET35 and I am running 25 on my current Compomotive MO's. Can you get hubcentric spacers as narrow as 10mm?

Also got a set of uprated driveshafts.

The owner (Tallpaul off the CF) wasn't sure twhat they came out of however he ran them on his G60 (after shearing the normal ones with his 20v tubo engine) and thought they may be either 16vG60 or VW Motorsport ones. Anybody seen these before, and please if they are just standard ones let me enjoy my ignorance Laughing

Final thing, couple of Vibratechnics mounts.

Going to be having the exhaust manifold out before long to fit the EGT sensor so will probably fit these then.

Nice selection there.

Driveshaft wise if Tall Pauls original chassis was a valver then the longer driveshaft is much thinner but is solid. Stock G60 units are the wide diameter ones but they are hollow tubes.

He said he had G60 ones on previous which he manage to break with his 20v turbo setup, then sourced these as 'uprated driveshafts'. From what he was saying they are a pair (not one from each) but you've got me wondering now whether it's just one G60 one and one valver one given what they look like Rolling Eyes
