Yep in 1999.... it was cheaper to bring it here from NZ than to buy another car here locally in those days....

I never put it on a Dyno as the clutch was slipping. I would say it was around 190kws at the wheels....have other plans for this car which is more worthy! Which you will see soon!

Power figures are dependent on type of Dyno used...I have another project (Levin - 4AGTE) that did over 200kws at the wheel and its 1.6lt and was on a roller Dyno. I can't comment on your m8's project but I can't see why he couldn't do over 200kws easily. Was it on a run-in tune? Do you know if the heads were a limiting factor?

Silvertop and blacktop block is the same thou rods are thinner and lighter in the blacktop and the blacktop heads flow more. I used the blacktop bottom end because I couldn't be bothered changing it as I have a 7AGTE engine going in soon.

Barry builds Motors to the spec his own motor has,

Which has made 330 fwkw with heaps of room to spare so potentially 400fwkw is achievable on e85.. Time attack winner in NZ and it's a genuine 10 second street car.

This car will be a weapon and I pity the p plater that tries to race it.

Looking really good :)

What power you wanting from this motor?

250kw?

As Alex90 said....somewhere in the 300kws range...this has a couple of differences when compared to Barry's one and he reakons it should do more than his easily....

The Black one is for sale!

I have poured so much money into it now ...I am thinking that I should drive it for a month at least once it is ready or maybe sell it after I run it in....it's still at the workshop so not sure at this stage...hopefully next month it will be ready!

I am moving on to my RX7 fc now instead of the black Levin....and a 9agte and a few other things!

I was having alot of issues with fuel starvation. The fuel pumps were crazy loud. Even when i had the Bosch, they were very loud. After some checks realised it is as a result of the Earls filters being pre-pump. Took out the mesh inside the filters and the problem went away!

Changed the surge setup again! This time the Earls filters are inside the surge tank!! The filters mount on the return and supply inside the cap on the AI surge tank!

The fuel pump noise went away too! They are pretty quiet now!
