Think I've dreamt up my next project. Cheap quick and unusual

Post by ctwg60 on Sat Nov 07, 2009 12:16 pm

Laughing OK I'm dreaming but it seems doable especially as Ian Birch is just round the corner from me!

500bhp 3.6ltr twin turbo all wheel drive consisting of 2x 1.8T 225 BAM or similiar engines. One in the front and one in the back! Laughing Designed for the track and the QM! What do you do on the V5 though! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Just one long engine number I guess! Laughing

Ian Birch is the man when it comes to twin engined VW's he has done many and if rumours are right even caught the attentions of VW themselves. So 1.8T are cheap, they'll easily physically fit in the back and front, no need to spend any money on them other than to get them working correctly in the car. And maybe a consulting/fabrication fee from Ian Birch, but of course I'd do the front engine myself and as much work as I could for the rear engine. It stacks up for a fun filled cheapish project. Oh I have no idea how to fit an engine at the rear of a vehicle! Laughing

So what do we think! Suspect

I know! Yeah in my current C! But it really excites me because apart from the gear shift, which I'm sure ian can sort out it really makes perfect sense for a non daily car as far as cost is concerned! Clutch arrangement will be interesting too accelerator DBW??

Rear engine would be bump start! with no starter motor! wired to only start if the front engine was already running!

Ok.
An electronic throttle would make the most sense.
Can emerald or DTA cope with that?
So one engine for each axel so to speak?
Would you run identical turbos/engine specs at each end ?

If I went aftermarket that would increase costs substantially and as the engines would be be fairly stock I think a cheap rechip would do. Ultimatley I'd like to run more power at the rear as that's where the most traction is and would make the car more balanced in the corners. I believe Ian Birch ran light pressure turboed twin VR6 engined rallye and he had some sort of traction control to get the best traction. I don't think DTA can do DBW.

I think sequential shift would be the solution for the gear change. I'm not really sure of the calcs but I wonder if one master cylinder could be used with two slave clutch cylinders?
