Hey everyone, wanted to get a thread going on my build in hopes the information can help others, and so that i can show everyone what im going to be up to.
Right now i'm basically in the part collecting stage, i've got mostly everything (i think) researched and laid out to what i'm picking up to put this setup together. It's somewhat of a custom build, and i'm looking to be 450-500whp on high boost.
Id love for any help as to things i might be over looking or missing, or just general pieces of advice from anyone who wants to add.
Car is currently cammed, 264/260's
Car is running a fluidampr
-T4 Precision 6266 ball bearing
(still not decided on AR size, .68 or .81, would love any real world feedback on this and what differences in boost characteristics i can expect)
-46mm Vband precision WG
-Inline fuel pump
-Coated rod bearings
-ARP rod bolts
-HEP SRI intake manifold
-Custom 3" vband downpipe, with WG return into exhaust, into 3" catless
-DKM MS Series clutch and flywheel
While it's apart:
-Eboost street EBC
-Crackpipe, waterpump, thermostat and housing
-Probably gunna tackle timing chain service as well, will be getable with trans out.. No chain stretch via VCDS but, again, might as well?
So, that's my layout. The install work and custom plumbing is all being done by a fantastic shop in NH and by a guy that has done these types of builds many times.
I just saw in this sub forum a post by a guy with essentially the same setup in a 3.2swapped mk3, made 420whp on 14psi with the stock intake mani.
I would be plenty happy hitting those numbers on low boost (14psi) but i have a feeling with the cams, damper and SRI, low boost might make closer to 450? Then high boost (18-20psi) id like to see where that brings me... My entire goal is to keep this build south of the transmission threshold. I don't really have a definitive answer on what that is on these cars but i know you get into it much more the more north of 500 you go. I don't track the car, it's my fun weekend car, and will be daily driven on low boost.
Anything i'm over looking or missing on? Any and all advice is welcome. I want to make sure i try and cover everything because i only wanna do this once. Reliable, simple and clean turbo build that can make upper 400's whp.
