  1. Following this, i know of a lad on the colt owners site I'm on that ran a tf035 he used a tdo4 13t compressor housing and wheel on a tf035 exhaust housing and a tdo4l 11blade exhaust turbine. The thing was 1 hell of a turbo no lad and made power till redline. He ran a large external gate also. Do any of you lads have any graphs with setups please.
  2. Still not working for me.
  3. It does look so clean. I'm very tempted to get a fresh import GT mk2 quadlight.
  4. I'll message you so as to not spam others threads. But I'm home from work now and have caught up on the reading\research I've had to do because I've been moved onto a different project now the race season has been haulted. I'll get it all together from the books I've got.
  5. I'll have 2 please when there ready. Ep91. A really good setup gt Brad. Can't wait to see the Dyno graph it's going to impress.
  6. Very sensible most of the engine failures on the high boost level setups happen around July to September in the UK. The hottest times of year. If mapping has taking place in the coldest winter months on a Dyno the chances of failure in summer is high.

    I do need a spare 4efe to measure up for pistons. I was looking at figures from the acis manifolds on the 3sgte and 3sge. With the 3sge engine and manifold out proforming the K20 vetec honda. so you could be onto somthing. Remembering the 3sge and different 3sgte manifolds are a different design to the 5efhe. So this gives room for ideas designes. My only worry is the turbo design and cam arangement on my setup. Against the high lift and duration cams on the 5ehfe leading to the adaptive acis intake manifold design. Looking at Dyno graphs on these setups on the 4e and 5e the manifold changes over runners (long narrow to short fat) around 5krpm. Ramping up low rpm intake gas speeds (velocity) to access the cams 5k+rpm peak flow rates\power/torque. The problem here with the cam arrangements and turbo design I have. Cams are the lowest rpm peak flow rate cam setup on the 4efe with peak flow around 4krpm. Giving good off the line power (low rpm torque) This allows me to drop the peak rpm red line by 1krpm so 6000rpm limit. The turbo tdo4 13t billet hyb design is to operate at normal 3.5krpm to 5krpm range with a slower smoother surge of boost in this range (spool up) for control and engine reliability. delivering better air volumes in this range giving greater torque (3.5krpm to 6krpm) than a standard tdo4. for the desired target of the hyb turbo operational range to be met the intake & exhaust manifold design and cam arrangment are critical. The turbo also reduces mid to peak rpm egt levels for reliability and power gains. The 5efe paseo intake manifold I'm currently running gives great power (flow rates) from base to peak rpm but the power balancing of the engine is off with cylinder 1 being the weakest down nearly 20% at 6psi boost levels against cylinder 3 at the 100% reference strongest cylinder). The intake and exhaust manifold design on these almost controls the power balance offset the other factor is cylinder temp. I'm also massively impressed with the rolla inlets base to 2.5k rpm power levels/flow rates and equally alarmed by its 4.5krpm power drop because of its very small plenium design. The even length exhaust manifold like the zisco (narrow diameter even length runners) giving better low to mid range rpm gas speeds. the bigger diameter exhaust manifold designes aiming at peak rpm volumes not really contributing to gas speed at lower rpm levels. The acis in standard 5ehfe design requiring the 5ehfe cams would more suit a good mid range turbo like the ct9b hyb or a gt17 to 20 turbo or tdo35. Really ramping up the mid to peak rpm power levels to tdo4l levels with much better low rpm spool up, giving a almost complete rpm power range. If the owner now runs a better transmission gear set this design on the road would be near unbeatable by my calculation under 5sec to 60mph achievable and equally impressive 0 to 100mph times.I would strongly recommend the largest diameter external waste gate to be used as well as a 68deg thermo state with egt and cylinder temp cylinder 1&2 needing to be the very real fouces here or else the starlet will be just another engine dead statistic on here. Like most of the high boost ct9 & ct9 hyb mapped cars and certianly track cars I've read about. The garret gtx17 on the zisco designed exhaust manifold and acis cam and manifold would be insanely fast on the C63 gearbox. This setup would also give great road speed level control, as well as very good reliability on both engine and gearbox. The only real room for improvement here would be engine efficiency mpg. If a larger turbo wanted for track then play with the exhaust manifold diameter to achieve good spool up results also accessing good road speeds. Im also of the opinion this set up would hit these speeds with around 200 to 220hp allowing a standard 4efte engine to be used but I would recommend forged pistons and ACL high load bigend bearings. As well as a oil cooler. The design I'm running follows this design but aims at reducing all the nasty temp and power balance issues allowing the high compression ratio more efficient (better mpg) 4efe engine to be used. The higher compression ratio heavier piston crown in the 4efe is why it runs weaker valve springs to cap peak rpm it also has a noticeable lowwer redline limit. Not requiring forged internal or oil coolers and a better in car heat 78deg thermostat to be run for winter defrosting needs. Target hp 240 with equal or more torque. With the buget of the build set at £8k max.

  9. Hello spray brake cleaner around in intake and inlet manifold to see if it affects rpm to find a leak. Also do a blink code dtc read out on the ems to help pin point the fault.
  10. Yeh. The body roll on these and suspention deflection is truly shocking in standard form. When I first experienced driving one of these on track to be truthful I did 2 laps and came off in disgust, parked it up it was so so bad. Body roll and pitch, suspention deflection that made the wheels/axles feel not attached to the vehicle, brake bias making in corner brake control impossible and weight transfer\shift\pitch a real problem. Lift off over steering. And a steering rack that felt very unresponsive and lacked feed back (feel). We really changed all this dramatically with out areo work and with some very precise mods. The thing holds the road and gives great feedback. Handling mods are a very beneficial mod on the ep91 and 82 the complete opposite to the ae101 which surprised me.
  11. High quality. Agreed a 1.5 on a c60 gearbox would be very capable. Alot more acceleration and torque. Following this 1 keep it up.
  12. Its bad this lockdown, so much could be getting done. Alot of mechanical skill on these cars\site. Lovely glanza v keep them updates coming.
