Those billeted trumpets are lovely ain't they. I'd enjoy making them as they look interesting.

This looks great! Jealous of the 205 rad as i want to do that but think it'll be more hassle than its worth

So a few weeks ago I borrowed a trailer, and my BMW's alternator died on the Thursday evening just as I was loading up the ZX ready for the Friday morning trek to Launceston, cue DCC's Landrover to the rescue!!

this was the view at about 6.30

9.30, That sign, a very welcome one.

Bumper off and strapped down.

Dan popped down to Truscotts and got a brand new expansion tank cap, the used one I had didn't seem to be holding much pressure, though it wasn't boiling over at all.

big thanks to Neil, he's a bloody good teamaker, as well as Pinto building machine, I'm sure he knocks out two or three a day at least of the hotrod high power beautifully finished engines!

oh and Dan picked up some bits from Sandy...

After a few issues with some tricky to find wiring faults causing an injector to not fire, Sandy cracked out his wiring kit and made me a new outer injector sub loom, cleaned the plugs and got cracking, then found an issue with the lambda dropping out, seems the heater circuit was a bit iffy and the lambda kept going full lean, gave that a clean stronger live feed and it seemed to be fine thereafter, once the few niggles were nailed down the map came together very quickly.

only managed to get a few short clips, no power figure yet but we do know we're at the limit of the GTI6 injectors at 3 bar (running up to 85% duty IIRC), and the Clio 250cc are filling the rest as required, so its around the 240 bhp mark.

next jobs are to sort the clutch cable as it seems to have been cooked with the prolonged periods under load on the rollers, will need to find some material to protect it from the heat, buy some pads and fit my brakes.

Yeah I'm quite happy it didn't grenade itself or puke oil or coolant LOL

It's not happy with large throttle openings at under 3.5k, but tickle it up past that or drop a cog its clean all the way up to 7500 rpm (still hydraulics)

I need an oil cooler and some more ducting on the rad too I think.

I know an E46 M3 does not pull much on the jump, and up top it starts gaining...

Its fine, drove it to work for a week after the mapping as I was waiting for the alternator for my bmw! Its all in the mapping, and I think I got quite lucky that the parts I've bolted together seem to work together well enough.

I'm sure people are looking when they see a slightly noisier zx with mismatched panels idling at 1200 LOL

It certainly likes a drink when its up the revs, I've not done any lower rpm cruising in it yet though, the temptation is far too high Laugh my ass off

My race car likes to drink but I think that's because the map isn't great. Did it take long for Sandy to map the 2 sets of injectors? I guess he's good enough for it to not really matter Big grin

it will take a little more time but not much at all really, It depends whether you're using them staged or just using the outers to fill in where the inners run out of duty.

What do you have as inners and outers? I've only got standard injectors as outers, figured I wasn't running an aggressive enough setup (Piper BP250Hs and 45mm bodies) to be worth inners as well.

GTI6 IW204 as inners in standard location, Clio IWP042 on the outers.

I was going to run them on the 2.0 but I had a duff injector last time round!

Mei, any more photos of your rad setup and pipes? I was looking at using a high flow 205 rad but the top pipe is pointing inwards and angled downward which could make it a pain getting a pipe for it

Ahhh, I see. So a 205 top hose chopped and connect in to a 306 top hose? I was thinking about getting rid of the heat exchanger so I should be able to just use a 205 top hose then, with a push fit adapter in the thermostat housing?
