#109246, "420a Turbo upgrade"
Apr-13-12 08:52 PM by PinkPixi



          

I just wanted to start a thread on our turbo project named Pink Pixi.

She started out as a normal 1995 RS eclipse 5 speed with a broken timing belt.

We bought her for $250.00 from a friend of mine.

As soon as we got her home I asked my husband if he could make her go PSHHHT?

He was like yeah but its going to cost us alot of money and take some time to do it right.

My husband is a mechanic/master fabricator with a degree in computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

Here is what has been done to her so far:

BLOCK:

Cleaned, decked, line bored, pressure checked and painted pink

Wiseco Piston 88.00mm (+.020 Overbore)
8.8:1
Eagle Rods
New crank (knife edged)

ARP main/girdle Studs

Balanced the rotating assemble


HEAD:

cleaned,decked, line bored, pressure checked and painted purple

Upgraded Lifter Lash Adjusters

Cometic MLS Head Gasket

ARP Head studs

SBI Rocker Arms

SBI Valve guides

PEP Stainless Steel Valves

Stage 3 Head port (loss of low end, gain on top end)

Crower Performance level 5 - Stage 3 - Full Race Camshafts

Crower Springs/retainers


Transmission:

Built by royal transmission with heavy duty parts (01 neon with an lsd)

Fuel:

850cc PTE injectors
Warb 255 HP fuel pump
-8 up -10 down fuel lines
Custome built fuel rail
Aeromotive 1:1 FPR

Turbo/induction system:

T67 0.81 A/R P Trim Turbo Charger, Oil Cooled, 0.81 Turbine 3" Inlet & 3" Outlet 400-500 HP Rating
2.5 IC piping
FMIC 2.5 in 2.5 out
TiAL Q BOV
Custom intake manifold top half with fully ported bottom half
2nd gen throttle body with FIAV delete (egr deleted)

Exhaust:

Hasnt been built yet but it will be a full mandrel 3" with no cat (fake cat, we dont have emissions here)

That is all I can think of right now but I know there is more that I am forgetting hehe.


OH!!! and we have the super 420a Megasquirt from RS AutoSports too. (using it as a full stand alone with no factory ECU)


I have a lot of pics if anyone wants to see them.

I'll take some new pictures as soon as my husband is done taking out the ecu harness.

He is in the process of removing the harness completely but retaining all of the stock funtions that the car came with, so it is kind of a chore sorting it all out.

Here are the pictures of the motor that I posted in the introductions forum, it looks different now

All of the blue is gone and the intake, fuel rail, t-body, ic piping are differant and the FPR is an aeromotive now.

Got rid of the MSD Dis II too.

OK, I have a few up to date shots of the progress that is being done. Dont mind the mess and the RED elbow, I just used it for the picture.

Here is a shot of the new intake manifold with the 2g 4g63 t-body and a the fuel rail that was built also.

I am loving the car as I get to see it finally getting worked on again and moving towards a completion.



Same stuff just different angle and distance.



A shot from the front.



And a few closer shots of the rail

Where did you get that intake from? And the 4g63 TB and fuel rail was it hard to make it work??

My husband built the intake, exhaust and fuel rail. Tbody was easy with the intake being built for it. A tps is 5v ref , signal, ground. It's just wiring it up.

You mean how he built them?

My husband owned his own custom fab shop for over 10 years.

Right now he is removing the stock gauge cluster and setting up all aftermarket gauges in a custom plate in the stock location. (I saw it on youtube and told him I wanted that hehe)

I would love to see a write up from someone on how to make a custom intake manifold. I've seen a few custom manifolds here and there, but not much on what went into designing and making them.

Whats your HP goal? Looks like a record could be set with this! Also are you using MegaSquirt on it? Solid lifters? and Xtreme performance sells a more aggressive cam I believe. http://www.xtremefabrications.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=53_67&products_id=198

Also that's a lot of light pink!

not sure bout that record comment..^.. Deff an Interestng build tho.what LSD are you running? Quaife? OBX..?

I can deff say Doug at Xtreme is the man. Also interested on what EMS your planning on running.

you can always trust a dishonest man to be dishonest, honestly, its the honest ones you need to look out for. you never know when they will do something..stupid

With more custom parts maybe how about that lol. I'm curious on why you used a box style intake manifold instead of a rounded one. Those sharp corners would cause a lot of turbulence I would think.

I've seen a few people use square manifold bodies now and got curious.

Found this article on manifold design:

http://horsepowercalculators.net/intake-manifold-design/intake-manifold-design

Interesting read. It helped clear up some misconceptions I had about the proper design of an intake manifold not having any fabrication experience. For instance, I would have thought having runners flush with the bottom would cause less resistance, but it turns out that is a big no no because velocity is extremely low toward the bottom of the body. It's the only source I've read though, so I won't say without a doubt that everything in it is definitely right.

interesting, looking at the pix now, its very tall too, its like a large box on the bottom half of the runners, i wonder how that plays with VE, not to mention, same concept as using larger IC pipes, increases spool time due to your filling a larger volume.

All I asked was why she used a square design haha. But I would do a lot of research on intake design before making one. It seems that all high hp cars have rounded tapered manifolds with the "trumpets" off the floor. The rest is based on turbo vs non turbo, displacement and a whole lot more r and d.

Also a good read bluespunk. I've read that before and its so amazing how little changes make a huge difference.

My husband has a degree in computational fluid dynamics and he built manifold at his work based on a flow bench that they have. He built 4 different ones before he settled on that one. He use to build them for about 10 years for the 4g63 platforms. We are using mega squirt as a stand alone with methanol injection. HP goals are still on the table.

Not to disrespect his degree but look at Greddy's intake for the Supra http://www.titanmotorsports.com/grinma93sutt.html or AMS for the EVO http://www.amsperformance.com/cart/AMS-Mitsubishi-Lancer-Evolution-VIII-IX-8-9-F1-I-Intake-Manifold.html they have been in the game for a long time. I would mimic their design and look over the article. You don't have to but these are just suggestions. By the way did he lift the runners off the floor? And MS2 or MS3?

I asked him about it and he smiled and told me there is a lot more to that "box" then meets the eye...I asked him what does he mean by that. He told me inside that box is a work of art.

So I will have to drag out of him this magic that he is talking about.

I'll let ya know what he says.

Inside the "box" the runners are velocity stacked just above the throttle body bottom , each stack is mathmaticly angled. There are air dam/defusers in place to equalize the air flow across all four runners.
The "box " evenly distributes air up to 40psi. There are no actual dead flow spots inside.

A lot of companies make great products but if you can build one that can perform the same why not?

Will she be on a dyno? Absolutely!!!

I just want him to finish it so I can drive it.

id go ms3. ether way, have fun with tuning. there so much flexibility.
that way you can tun sequential injection as well. i love the clean look and function of full standalone, but the tuning is kicking my ass. i hope Erik can hook it up : )

you can always trust a dishonest man to be dishonest, honestly, its the honest ones you need to look out for. you never know when they will do something..stupid

I know it has a mls head gasket and my husband showed me how he O RINGED the block but I am not sure what head studs he used , I am pretty sure he told me a while back that it had ARP head studs in it...but like I said I am not sure what ones he used.

O ringed the block? Can you get more details on that? I never heard of it but it sounds interesting. The ARP's I showed you are the half inch ones. They are beefier than the off the shelf ones. But you have to bore the bolt holes and re thread

With off the shelf ARP head studs and a good O ring setup you have enough clamping force to handle 30-40psi.

My Husband runs 35-40psi in his eclipse and has done so for over 10 years.

Here is a pic of an o ring setup.



Here is the Tool that can do this.

yes.

Some people use the copper wire, others have used SS wire although they both seem to hold up just fine either way.

No, the project has NOT been scrapped by any means lol.

We have just been really busy as of late.

The motor side is now 98% complete and we only have a little more to do on the interior to get her running.

The list is short as far as actual things that need to be done.

Time permitting we will be working on the car this weekend and see what we can get done.

My husband finally got around to putting the seats in. The dash cluster is not a full aftermarket set-up like I wanted but it will do just fine for now.

He still has'nt taken the time to do the exhaust yet

The car is about 90% drive ready, I am so excited.

There is a little more then exhaust, but it shouldn't take much more time once we find the time LOL

There is a lot of cosmetic things that are on the list of things to do, none of which will prevent it from running. (will prevent me from driving it though hehe)

My husband decided to keep the stock cluster, but added 2 gauges into the cluster itself, and the led for the knock sence. :p we also added to gauge pod that puts one gauge on each side.

Well, its been a few years and I thought I would give an update lol
My son and husband have redone most of the motor color wise and changed the intake manifold, fuel rail and exhaust manifold, they changed to an a2w intercooler setup also.

The motor is now blue with no more pink

They redid the fuel lines and fuel filter while they were at it and powder coated the wheels too.

Let me know if ya want to see pics.
