[QUOTE=Christian and Beccy;2030036]Firstly, here's the car with it's new wheels.

9.5J x 18" Rota GTR's with 255/35/18 Dunlop SSR's.





I think we found the limit of the standard engine, so a rebuild is in progress.

Starting here......











AMS 2.3 Stroker Kit, featuring a K1 Billet Steel Crank, Crower I-Section Conrods and Ross Racing Forged Pistons......[/QUOTE]





[QUOTE=Christian and Beccy;2030044]It's going to have a slightly bigger Turbo bolted to it....













That's an AMS GT35R Dual Ball-Bearing kit. It has a Tial 38mm External Wastgate and is good for over 600bhp. :top:[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=Christian and Beccy;2030066]





Hopefully the pictures do the talking!!

The bottom-end is now built and work is starting to assemble the head. There is another parcel on the way from the US, containing more goodies, which should be here in the next couple of days. [/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=Christian and Beccy;2049598]....and now the dirty little bastard Turbo is right where it needs to be......

[QUOTE=Christian and Beccy;2493764]Well, it's been ages since I updated this thread, so here is a little update for you!!

Where on earth do I start??!!

The EVO RS Rear Diff conversion is now fitted. This is a steel-cased diff with no gadgetry and is what is usually fitted to the high-horsepower car's with good results. Of course the car has a much more 'real' feel, so you know where you are with it, instead of the computer sorting it all out so-to-speak.

We have also just complete a full gearbox rebuild using a brand-new Evo 9 GT gearkit. This has diffierent ratio's from what was in the car. We found that on track and in some of the sprint classes (particularly 30-130mph) the transition from 4th to 5th gear had a huge drop-off, these improved ratio's should address this, though will cap the top speed to under 160mph.

At this time we decided to take a look at the clutch (we fitted an Exedy Twin Plate last year) and since it was in good condition it would have been rude to leave it there!! So we sold it!! :cry:

In it's place is an Exedy Hyper Compe-R Twin Plate unit. This features an Ultra Lightweight Low Inertia drilled flywheel, rigid Low Inertia discs and an Aluminium cover. The result is a fantastic clutch that is great to drive with and the whole thing weighs around 4kg less than the previous twin-plate.



LET'S GO LAUNCHING!! :banana:

Next up is the Engine bay. The standard Evo Breather system has it's inadequacies, so we have fitted a Weapon-R Breather Tank, which is designed to fit in the triangular gap in the factory Strut-Brace. However, this tank comes with small push-on type connectors. This just didn't cut it. So we hacked those off and had -10 Alloy connectors welded on. The Rocker Cover was also drilled and tapped for -10. This meant that we could pipe the entire breather system in -10 pipework with the appropriate fittings......









We also re-piped the Boost Control Valve with Steel-Braided Hose.....



Next up, we have finally fitted and got working the AIM Dash. This has been a bit of a mission as it requires all the warning lights to go through a re-think!! A good friend of Gary's made the Carbon-Fibre Binnacle too, which we are extremely impressed with!! You can also see the new Sparco Suede Steering Wheel and Quick Release Boss in these pics......









The new Sparco Pro 2000's now sit on Bride Runners, so have full sliding adjustment and there will be a set of Black Harnesses going in shortly. The rear interior is completely gone now too. :cry:

Also, as an update on the power side of things. We have seen almost 570bhp at under 1.8 bar of boost. 460bhp at the wheels. This is on V-Power and considering that the kit can easily run 2.2 bar, infact it could run 2.5 bar, though we won't go that far, I think our target of 600bhp should be easy to achieve. I will add some more information and graphs as and when we get time to get on with the mapping.

[QUOTE=Christian and Beccy;2881299]Aaaah, since this has been bumped to the top, I might aswell give you an update.

Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere on the thread, but Gary's Evo was fitted with an Exedy Compe-R Lightweight Twin-Plate clutch a while back. It an awesome clutch, featuring a lightweight, low-inertia Flywheel and unsprung Paddle-style plates. However, we have reason to believe that 650bhp/550lb/ft may be its limit, due to other peoples experiences. So, whilst it is still very new (it's only done about 500 miles), we opted for a replacement.

Enter, Exedy Carbon-R Lightweight Triple-Plate clutch!! :eek:











Exedy own the patent to the push-pull Clutch conversion, so are the only ones to have the system that they do, with no conversion assembly required, also, this clutch has what they call SX Coat, which is the black coating seen on the metal plates. Ordinary Carbon Twin/Triple plate clutches require extensive and very fussy running in, they also need warming up each time you use them. The SX Coat allows you to fit the clutch and use it immediately with none of that messing around.

What do you think?

Incidentally, the Compe-R is now for sale. I will post it in the For Sale section on here incase any of the PassionEvo owners want a serious clutch. These are around 1400 new.

I don't even want to tell you what the Carbon-R cost!! :eek: :cry: :eek: :cry:

Oh, the joys of 650bhp. :eek:

Now, wheres the rest of the boost. :eek: :cry:[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=Christian and Beccy;3125052]Ever wondered what a gear-kit looks like that costs about the same as it would cost you to actually buy an Evo 4??


Yes, it's a PPG Dog Engagement Gearset. That's gonna make some fooking noise. :cry:







Here it is next to the old gearset.....



It's having a strain-gauge type set-up too, so it can have some clutch-less full-throttle changes. [/QUOTE]
