The heart of the beast

Built heads with Cosworth S2 Cams, clamped the heads down with genuine gaskets and ARP head studs

Next thing was the 6 speed gearbox conversion...
First off never attempt this on jackstands, not worth the mucking around of trying to get the old one out and the new one back under there.
Image

Image

Since the 6 speed is much larger we couldn't use the dolly to roll it under the car, so we had to roll it on its side on thick coreflute and side it under, this alone took 20 minutes :lol: :lol:

Put a Beatrush HD 6 Speed mount in

2.5 hours later we had this

and 10 minutes later

Next step is to bolt the diff in, its a 2004 Spec C Sti 1.5way plated diff, don't have any pics of it in there, next step is to source a tailshaft and rear driveshafts

Went to the wreckers to get a set of standard STi headers but saw some TOMEI un-equal length headers that already had an external gate pipe welded on there, picked them up for an absolute steal! Have a Grimmspeed 3 bolt gasket on order and just need to rewrap them with some better quality wrap

Next was to test fit the turbo, decided to go with the Mamba GTX3076r, took the risk and ordered it, being a cheaper turbo I expected the quality to be not the best but when it showed up i was very surprised. The quality and machine work is to the standard of Garrett, Blouch etc We will see how it performs on the dyno :thumbs: btw it only just fits in there haha

Im just wait for the APS 3" turbo inlet to show up before i throw the inlet manifold on top. That's it for the moment, more updates next week :thumbs:

How did you go with lining the mambo 30r stock location up with the under manifold inlet pipe. I have seen people with that same turbo have alot of trouble with lining the inlet up. Having to do all sorts of crazy things with making extension bits and home made pipes and such. Unless they have changed the comp cover, then I think its gonna be too short and in a the wrong angle for an easy fit.

I haven't put the inlet manifold on yet but I've read this might be an issue, with the the inlet not clamping on properly, there is enough room for a clamp but the slight twist around the TGV might be an issue, i've got an APS inlet on the way which will make things a bit easier due to the moulded silicon hose from the inlet to the turbo. I've ordered a TGV delete kit too so there will be a little extra room and the engine is out of the car making it easier to fit. And will have an extra 8mm of clearance due to the phenolic spacers. There will be a lot more room than what a factory car has. Fingers crossed it will a clamp together, only time will tell haha

Been slowly working on the car and will have another big update coming soon,

But i'm struggling to find any info on clutches that will hold 300kw on a daily basis (I dont know how much torque the car will produce) , i've been looking at the ACT XTSS as a lot of guys in the US make use this particular one. I dont want a button clutch as it's a daily and want something that isn't too heavy due to Sydney traffic...

Will i have to give Jim Berry a call or are there any off the shelf products that will fulfil what i'm after

Cheers,
Nath

I did the 6spd swap alone and with jackstands. Went smoothely and without issue. But i did use a few extra slabs of wood to make the jack stands higher.
