Todays effort was cleaning up the comp housing which was very rough cast compared to the old GT3076R. Garrett must have changed suppliers for the new comp housings as they are pretty average. After an hour with the flap wheel and dremel its now smoothed ready for shot blasting to even out the texture then its off to be powder coated

Its been a little quiet in the garage of late...this is the latest...I've fitted up the accusump and wired it for 3 modes of operation, it also has an idiot light built in. If the oil pressure drops enough to activate the accusump, the driver gets it from the big red light aimed right at the eyes.
 

 

 

I've also finally mastered itunes and can now get the albums to display properly with the cover showing for each track

TWO BIG THUMBS UP!
and that's just for the oil pressure light.
So the engine ignition spark will cut out once you loose oil pressure?

What you think about, you bring about.

Looking fantastic phil! Do the injectors and fuel pump need uprating for that turbo? I guess a tune will tell

Hi Mark,
I havent interupted the ignition at this point, I should have about 15 seconds courtesy of the accusump with the light on to shut it down...I figure if I havent seen the light by that point, its all over anyway!!

The pump should be ok but we'll know once its on the dyno, the fuel pressure guage will give it away, 044's are claimed to be good to 700hp. I have a set of ID1000's here that I was going to use, but since the build started, ID2000's are now readily available, so will be using a set of those. They should be ample, even with E85.
 
Cheers,
 
Phil.

Progress is slow bu slowly chipping away at the small jobs...the Accusump wiring is now finished and tested, and the stone shield is now finished ready for powder coating

I finished the machine work on the throttle body last night...it can now house a 60mm throttle plate up from the 55mm std one. Now just needs to be powder coated and assembled
