|Re: [sconz]1JZ turbo relocation

|Well Folks, i have finally pulled the turbo's off my 1JZ motor, not to fix, |
but to turn the back one around and build new exhaust for it. The turbo's
appear in remarkably good condition(touch wood) so I am just cleaning them
up and putting them back on. I will take some photos when finished. I am
also removing the Air Con pump and radiator and fitting a new drive belt,
moving the Hydraulic fan pipes and reservoir and building a better air box
in the front. As to the front spoiler, I am not sure if i will have time to
remodel it, but time will tell. I have to build a roll cage as well before
September, when it will be in the Hamilton Tarmac Rally, all being equal.
So just a few things to do. I will keep you posted and let you know if what
I am doing is worth it in the performance stakes. I have a controlled piece
of road I use for testing(public of course :-)) so will know the results
from that. I have also used a G-Tech although the clutch was stuffed at the
time and i have never been good at getting my car off the line, probably
because i like to keep my tyres and clutch. So i will be looking at more
than 300 RWHP if this Change has done any good. I know it is only a G-Tech,
but it is the difference i will be looking for, And I know that the person
who used this G-Tech had VERY similar figures from a Dyno on several
occasions. The last figures i got were 276 RWHP, 0-60mph time (with
verified Accurate digital speedo) of 5.2 seconds with 2 people.
Anyway, lets see what happens
Any comments on other improvements, while I have the turbo's and front
bumper off, would be welcome.
