    Hey guys, so this is now a new shortened version of my build thread after photobucket took a dump on everybody by changing it's hosting rights

    i'll be able to reduce the initial 1200 pictures down into a more compact version of a thread haha

    starting a fresh because i cannot be bothered going through every post and editing links etc

    so here goes, lets wind the clock back 4-5 years at the begining of basically a nut and bolt rebuild haha

    my bone stock s14 silvia sr20de n/a import from japan

    so i had bought a 2jz ge block, had it machined to take oil squirters and turbo oil feed, i sent my block to a motorsport company in dundee scotland

    unfortuantely i wasn't to know how bad i'd end up

    i wanted a new set of pistons in the block and bearings so the compression ratio would be right+ refreshed and since i don't have engine building precision tools i thought i could turst them

    my block came back with deep scoring in the bores in some cylinders, weather that was there before i don't know but it should have not been returned to me like this from an engine builder

    deep enough that my finger nails would go inside and catch

    when removing the bearing caps to try remove the pistons to see if i could hone them out going on advice from other engine builders i'd realised some of the 'new' bearings were also damaged

    on an engine only turned over by hand a few times

    i'd bought alot of parts from this company also which turned out to have issues, a new turbo....found an owen dev sticker on the housing

    called up owen dev and quoted the number, they said it was rebuilt and off a bdc car....awesome

    got that back but as for the block etc i was told i'd marked it with a screw driver and it's my own fault.....yeah so basically i had to start from the begining minus the money i'd paid so far

    i'm not to mention his name as i'd not like to be done for slander for making damaging accusations but i guess you just learn who not to deal with in the motorsport trade!

    thankfully i didn't use the engine as it would have burned oil and all sorts

    so.....cut to a few months down the line, i had no money and a half built car after selling my 1j+r154 setup and piling all the money into the parts for the new build

    i got in contact with DY engine services, dave yandell, he suggested oversizing my block which means new pistons and rods again and another set of bearings+arp studs etc

    i just went with it and put it on my credit card because i had to! otherwise i'd have an expensive useless tin on wheels


    dave worked his magic, block hot tanked and painted, .5mm oversized so bores were like brand new

    so now i spent a little while saving and paying off stuff etc, then moved onto turbo choice, fast spooling over lag

    gtx3582r, t3 divided .83 housing, 4" intake, 2.5 intercooler out

    engine run in on dyno and oil changed correctly

    box developed a noise so changed it, abc couldn't have been more helpful with aftersales advice, probably best company i've dealt with

    back onto dyno after driving around for a while making sure everything works for a base boost map

    changed onto the good stuff

    went for a drift day with just stock 1 bar of boost which is wastegate spring pressures, boost controller off

    had so much fun, went down with my mate stevie to crail and we spend the day chasing eachother

    i was rusty as that was my first time drifting in 2 years with a whole new engine/box setup and a new alignment and anti roll bar setup

    completely different car to drive, it's 100x easier and such an animal now, the boost comes on so hard so fast too

    back to dyno and had boost turned up

    the car was mapped up to 2 bar of boost and made something over 600hp, unsure on exact figure due to wheel spin but it's insane.

    so i need to go back with some 265 r888's now to make sure i can get grip and we will do a proper power run

    as for now, the car insurance was set to expire the day after mapping so it's just been put into storage since august, i've had other priorities to sort out just now....turbo converting my supra haha

    it'll get back out in 2018 and insured and ready to rock around march/april time

    but for now it's just needing some overfenders on the rear since the 1/4 was reshaped by stevie's s14 during a drift session and it'll mean i can run stupidly wide rear wheels




    also dumping these in here for my own reference incase i'm ever stuck without them, boost controller references

    p1: wastegate pressure no boost controller
    p2 - 1.2 bar, 40 gain =25
    p3 - 1.5 bar = 50 gain =25
    p4 - 1.8 bar = 60 gain =25
    p5 - 2 bar = 65 gain =25

    I'd need 35 grand haha, only way I'd ever sell this car, would have to be a stupid price for me to ever hand the keys over as I've built my dream sbody that I've wanted to own for years and years. sounds ridiculous when you read it back haha but I can't ever imagine myself without this car

    hows the 330d box with the 3.6 diff? 1st must be interesting, is top useable on longer drives?

    it works really good, tbh it feels the same as the r154 with 4.3 diff

    I use 3rd gear when drifting a lot because the turbo comes on boost so quick that there's little to no lag now, 2nd gear is gone almost too quick, it's fine for when you really slow down if chasing someone on a tight couple of corners, but otherwise I just leave it in 3rd and sometimes have been into 4th when there's enough space to stretch it's legs

    I think working it out, the ratio's work out to feeling the same as having a 4.3 back end again with the beemer box and the 3.6.

    the 3.6 was the lowest ratio I could get with no hassle, I believe there are certain models of r200 diffs with 3.1 etc etc which would have been interesting

    on long drives I think form memory it sat at 3300 at 70mph :S and for all the time the car was on the road I've not managed to find out when it stops in 5th, will do that on dyno next time it's in for a power run
