Ok cut the firewall today, actuator needed to go on the otherside so thought it best to cut out the panel for a bit of extra room and also ease of inspection of the turbo as it will be engine out otherwise
Gearbox sits on the same mounts but about 25mm further towards the passenger wheel so the gear linkage needed a little tweak
Vibratechnics mounts are in, spoke with Phil today and he is happy with the way its in. even mentioned the drivers side engine mount is used on the supras and 700lbft so should be ok (y)
But, bought a new toy, its called the S-dash. I am not a fan of lots of gauges in a car, esp when on a mission as its the last thing you look at, i loved my DASH2 in the metro as it had hi-lo alarms but didnt want to change the std stack on the elise to keep the car looking std as possible.
So Drew at Roverdose showed me this S-Dash made by a guy in Belgium. It plugs into the DTA (one of the reasons i bought the dta) and can show 48 channels of information. Basically everything the DTA can see if will show and it has HI-LO alarms that can be configured to rpm, temp etc
So above 12.5 AFR above 6000rpm below 15 AFR below 10% throttle etc
It also has shift lights built in, is a data logger with 8mb memory, can hold 8 maps downloadable in 5 secs and an easy wipe screen incase i get any more excited :wub :up

Thanks for the messages to say it's been emotional is an understatement.

The exhaust is in. Its 3" to after the cat then splits to twin 3" I did think about twin cats but heat and extra restriction put me off. Exit should use the std lotus tail pipes :-)

Things have been a little slow due to baby and a job promotion but back on track

Suspension is on brakes fitted, ap 4 pots but with 308mm solid discs from a vectra not pretty but at 125 a set drilled and spigot type insert I had to try it. Braided all the pipes too
Dta has lots of features one is launch and traction control which is four channel so had to mill some marks into the disks.
Will also give speed to the ecu so I can trigger radiator fans and engine bay fan to come on at low speeds to counter act heat soak
Loom is made and engine should be running this week

Custom dash little bigger than I wanted but should be ok

Dash displays all parameters on the ecu

Three buttons are launch control, wet / dry traction and on/off traction control

Two potentiometers control variable boost 11psi to 29psi and variable traction control

Just got the call, didnt have time to do all of the mapping but so far i am more than happy
First proper run it made 260bhp at 6500rpm, but was boosting higher than the 11psi at 14psi
timing was knocked back a little to lower the boost and it made 290bhp at 6500rpm max torque of 281lbft at 5400rpm and torque at 3000rpm was 210lbft :brum
at 2500rpm it was making 7psi, torque is very flat from 3000rpm to 5500rpm at around 280lbft
Should be finished off on Monday, where the boost will get turned up a little more (29psi max) and cam timings will be changed to get it to rev past 7000rpm, preferably 7500rpm

Bit of a pain but the water pump to the dyno brake broke today so didnt quite manage to get it all done.

Here is the curve for the first curve, timing is now correct but still needs cam timing and more boost but its a nice start.

Boost is rising higher up which I think is the wastegate being to small but its not the end of the world.

Still needs to rev more but its a good base.......hopefully tomorrow but 400bhp looks achievable hopefully more ;-)

So cams were checked and inlet was 1.8mm at tdc and exhaust was the correct 0.42mm. Inlet has been corrected and it made another 40bhp. But the dip in power at 6250rpm is still there. It does recover so tomorrow we go for more. But exhaust manifold gasket is blowing so needs changing.
Could be turbine housing but its got no more boost on the 11psi actuator.
So do I up the turbine housing to 0.82a/r and bolt on a 14psi actuator.
Or just accept it will be quick enough with 450bhp per tonne and get it on the road !
