    Amazing build!
    Lol thanks I've tried to do things as best as possible, hopefully the end result is what I'm looking for.

    Top notch build. Anything RB related is cat's ass, I tried to find a reasonable RB swapped 240 before purchasing my 1JZ swapped MK3.

    This car should roll hard after a year or two of shake down. What's it weigh? What's the cage certified to?

    I also spotted the Fox in the background of this photo. Yours?
    1 or 2 years to get it up to speed would be terrible lol. Ive got a few experienced people with me that hopefully can get the car where it needs to be in a couple test sessions/events. Car weighs about 1850 with motor and trans in right now. Goal is 2200 with me in it and race ready. The fox belongs to Jay@NRC and is for sale as a roller if someone wants a BADASS drag car that is a great place to start. My 25.3 cert is good to 6.5secs in the 1/4.

    It says it somewhere in the thread.
    That is correct.

    2200 lbs is pretty light, that thing will be a handful. This sounds like this isn't your first rodeo, so when I say 1 to 2 years I mean to the point where you accomplish a pass where you feel like it's all worth it. This is a serious car. If this was a 130 mph car, I would say no problem with having it ready in a few sessions. This is 160 mph plus car for sure, this will be one hairy ride. Good luck man, I'll be excited to see what it pulls.

    Cant believe how long its been since I update this thread, a year ago I would have bet anything I would have had this done by now. Alas a series of fortunate and unfortunate events have conspired to keep me from getting this done. The chassis is pretty much done with the exception of putting the rear end together and back in and the rear shocks. We are waiting to get some numbers from the engine dyno to order the converter, rear gear and shocks. Ive missed a few scheduled tuning days and proline has cancelled a few on me. Once we FINALLY get it tuned the rest should come together pretty quick but ive said that before so we'll see. In the meantime I've finished one "build" and started another one so I'm keeping busy. Only have a few pictures on my cell and I'm out of town so perhaps I can do a better update next weekend.

    Interior all carpeted, it has since been fully finished with panels cut in and painted but no pics.

    No the 240 is being tuned and built by someone else and wont be affected by the GTR as I will be building the GTR's motor and the rest of the car in my house. The GTR shouldn't be down more than 5 or 6 weeks as it wont be as built as the 240, plan is low 9's.

    Well it was a pretty good day on the dyno but could have been MUCH better once again motherfuking chasebays strikes again.First who the hell knows how they wired my 02 sensor module so I ccouldn't calibrate the damn thing. Had to use the big stuff one of the dyno but that made datalogging a pain. Second these geniuses used 18ga wire for the 12V and ground to my coil (even though I took them a 500ft spool of 14ga to use check earlier pics) well the damn motor wouldn't rev past 5800 on boost and was running like $#@!. Luckily a member on here and nearby neighbor of mine helped run some thicker power wires directly to the dyno battery and that helped us get here:

    Click here to enlarge

    That is 1127@7000rpm running 48psi. We ran one more pass which ended up being the highest of the day 1157@7150rpm with 49psI but that popped of the valve cover vent

    Click here to enlarge


    We always planned to rev to about 10k so we made a pass with less CO2 on the gate. I'm running my wastegates with no springs and just put X amount of psi pressure with CO2. So we took off 10 psi of the gate and it made this while breaking up a bit:

    Click here to enlarge

    This was at 44lbs@7k falling of to 38psi at the end. We actually backed up the boost on the following pass and made 1041@9400 with 36psi just cause it was breaking up less. Try as we might we could get the coils to ignite any higher cylinder pressure. I got the info I needed on spool and the motor runs strong and oil pressure and everything and timing was real mild since we were trying to rev it out. Kinda bummed I couldn't see it run XXXX@10000rpm with 50psi but I'm super happy motor took it like a champ, all told we made 17 pulls of just over 1khp and the plugs egts and everything else looked good. We cut the filter open and not much at all in it. After the first track session we'll pull the bearings to make sure everything is durable. Not bad for a little ol 25.

    That is super awesome. What an amazing engine that is. I cannot wait to see videos of you running this car - and hearing/watching it rev out to 10k. What a freaking awesome motor. If you don't mind me asking, what would cost be for a build like this?

    Thanks guys its taken a while but I think I'm near ready to see the results. Inline as far as cost for the whole build I'm probably a bit north of 80k. If you meant just the motor and peripheral stuff (manifolds, turbo, electronics etc) I would say about 30-35k.

    Just the same, incredible numbers for a 2.5L.

    So will you spend another day on the dyno sorting out those issues, or is the engine already out of the room?

    I'm thinking you might have enough data to setup the torque converter, and rear gear?

    48 psi, crazy.

    Ton of power but damn is that narrow. Going to be an on/off switch!

    No I actually had to drive down to miami last night and ill be here for a week so no time to fix the wiring and go for big power. I will pick up the motor on tuesday and fix the wiring then finish tuning the high end on a chassis dyno. We definitely have enough for the converter and rear gear so mission accomplished on that front just gotta make more power next time out.

    Well actually we just couldn't get the ignition system to hold more cylinder pressure to keep the run going. On the 1127 run it made that at 7000 but the motor has another 2500rpm in it so hopefully when we get it all right you will see a much longer period of good power. You can actually see on the second graph that power stays at around 1000hp even though torque is falling fast (wastegate has been pushed open at that point). It made about 1000hp for about 2500rpms and were just getting started.
