80Esky who did your fabrication, turbo manifold and intercooler?



Paul Testa at Mr 2600 Racing in Wollongong did all the major fab work and built the engine.

After getting the car home from Small Ford Sunday we sorted out the last of the little issues the car had and street tuned it. Got it on the dyno last Wednesday where it made 377rwhp on 22psi. Has a lot more left in it, but the spring in the wastegate was too soft to hold any more than 22psi.
 
Overall very happy with the results, time to put more kms on it before we put the heavier wastegate spring in and add more boost.
 
Here is a video of the last power run.

Nice one. What fuel were you using? I would be interested to see a dyno plot if you have one?

Were running it on E85 from the pump.
 
Here is the dyno sheet, the blue line was 6psi wastegate pressure on the street tune.

It's been a while since i updated this, since Feb last year we re-tuned the car with a heavier wastegate spring and turned the boost up, car now makes 450rwhp on 30psi.
 
I have been taking the car a fair bit to roll racing, last time i took the car it had a fair bit of attention so much so a feature was done on the car.
 

 
A C4 is currently being built for it, then once that is in it will hit the track.

No worries thanks, I’ll have a look. Also What brand pedal box did you use?

I got the pedal box from Paul Dunstan on this forum, I highly recommend them had no issues with it.

I got one of his too but we had to mod the throttle pedal.  Have you got a pic of it installed?

We just had to bend it slightly to make sure we were getting 100% open throttle.

Thanks for the positive feedback 
I'm assuming the bending of the pedal was required regardless of the pedal box as the accelerator was untouched from the original?

Cheers

Nothing wrong with the pedal box it self, just when we were calibrating the TPS and with the throttlebody we're using we were getting 80% throttle, so in order for it to show 100% and for the throttle blade to open all the way it needed to be bent slightly.
