I think you will be much happier with your new turbo.
Good luck !
Is she gonna make it to the salt this year ?
Best wishes, I can't wait to see how it does on the dyno and the salt.

Mike, I must admit that this is zero hour and as long as everything went smoothly I would make SW.

Well......


I have been going snakes#%t the last few weeks with a "ticking" in the new motor. I ruled out valve train and cam chain so you can understand I was freaking out thinking it was a main or rod bearing going out.

Today after doing some research found it is likely the TB's being out of sync as the sound goes away as soon as the clutch is pushed.

Needless to say I can breathe and I can finish getting the motor in! As long as it doesnt break on the dyno we will be at SW.

Got back from the dyno today.....

Found a bunch of problems.....

Throttle cable too close to header.....melty...
water hose to the block had loose clamp....steamy
Batteries not holding charge well.
Vac line to the gate too close to the turbo....again melty.

Was able to make 2 pulls after some break in (as described elsewhere on this forum).

1st = 280 whp
2nd = 310 whp

and then.....

after the pull noticed some water flow out of the bov!!!!!

Turns out I have a leaking intercooler core!

Took it off after I got home and poured out about a gallon of water.....

Motor is not hurt (thankfully!).
New intercooler on the way.
My dyno guy is now an expert with the Microtech software (required some calls).
Hopefully next session we will have fewer probs and more into tuning.

Moral to this story is:
Better to find your problems before you hit the salt.

All things considered 310 isnt bad (about 12 psi....and only 16 more psi to go) and no holes in the case.
YET!

Last years 1507 made 246 WHP (in bike) with race gas @ 800' and 70 degs. I estimate at Bonneville it was only making 2-210 car whp. I base my HP needs on the 246 HP @ 175 mph and this should give me some rope (and even better 'cause the car would of went faster if we werent making licensing runs!)

I had a PT1000 NDA'ed so it should be here Fri-Sat. Lucky that the PT1K is a very common size for "tuners" and they had a few on the shelf. This unit is a much better fit for the engine size and what little space I have to put it in. I am a firm beliver that everything happens for a reason.....this is an expensive little chunk but if it means not blowing the motor its money well spent.

You  can see the new intercooler peaking out from under the electronics.
Way happier with the new unit....fits 110% better and wont have to worry about my flow becoming laminar though the core (bad). Also note the busa ECU says 11200 RPM....I flashed the ECU to 11200 from the OEM 10800 and took out 2 degrees and removed softcut.



A shot of the new dash.
Still needs a little work with wire management but that is for tomorrow.
Check out the billet gear position indicator on the top (reading N for neutral).
This unit is super cool and also provides negative output for each gear for gear based boost controllers or No2 setups. Even on my personal bike I still find myself trying to shift into 7th gear.....I know my pop would hit upshift at least a dozen times before the end of a run in the car!

3rd fire bottle Sunday
Dyno Monday
We leave Wed.

For all who followed this thread it has been a long journey for me to build my first motor.

I honestly feel I could do another in 1/2 the time for 1/2 the money but that is a road I had to learn.


Dyno results.....


438 whp and plenty to go.
