    Default My pulsar gtir sr20ve-t build

    Hi just sharing my pulsar build, it is a work in progress and one day I hope to be able to say it is finished.

    1993 pulsar gtir RA model

    current build

    Engine
    Sr20ve head currently stock (sr16 cams soon to be collected)/gtir block
    Cp pistons
    Cosworth gasket
    Sr20de rods and arp rod bolts
    4 counter weight crank from rr
    acl con rods bearings std
    mahle main bearings std
    acl thrust washers

    fidanza flywheel
    act 6 puck unsprung and hd pp

    850cc injectors
    aem 320 lph pump
    ms3 ecu

    borg warner 8375
    3" front exit exhaust

    Gab adjustable shocks and lowering springs
    white line anti lift anti dive bushings
    white line rear anti role bar
    wilwood superlight 4 pistons front brakes 11" rotor stock rear brakes

    [IMG][/IMG]

    My first build was with the gtir head arias pistons cometic gasket and gtir rods and arp rod bolts with a t3/t4 50 trim .63
    nistune ecu 880cc injectors I managed 11.7 in the 1/4 mile on pump and meth full road trim.

    [IMG][/IMG].

    I then went to a new manifold and turbo choice i tested a bullseye s366 with the same engine build as mentioned above. The power curve was a little to laggy for me, came on strong at around 6000 rpm, at that point I considered some tomei 280s and taking the rpm up as high as I could. However the car still does daily duty a few times a week and the power curve was no fun, so this build did not last long.

    On to the current build

    the s360

    my only issue is the physical size it is to big for a 68lb turbo

    the new manifold under construction

    completed new manifold

    it isnt perfect but its doing the job, my friends and i got together and did it in 2 days.

    new setup in

    Drove the car yesterday for a short while just to ensure no leaks or issues it went well. Will run exhaust on Tuesday and begin tuning. Hoping to get into the high 500s on pump and meth with the sr16 cams installed.

    I would use the 8cw crank just for piece of mind. I have yet to see a 4cw fail but I went with the 8cw with my build. the turbo should be interesting. we just had a s2000 in the shop running the turbo and it made 447whp at 13psi.

    Is the S360 a FMW? or older version? I'm leaning to that for my rwd build.

    Tight work my man. I have a build in the works very similar to this. In reference to the methanol injection how will you account for the uneven quench distribution? I have looked at this as an alternative to e85 but the fact that one cylinders 1 through 4 don't get the same amount of quench bothers me when it comes to advanced timing.

    Hi
    It is the cast wheel model with extended tip not the fmw.
    BorgWarner S300SX 8375 Turbo S360 - Full-Race.com.

    Nothing has been done to the box as yet, but I am either welding the casing or buying a box brace from strarcher. A few weeks ago a stock gearbox with welded case managed 10.3 in St.Lucia @ 133mph.

    With regards to the water meth I would assume that the cylinders getting less meth would be getting less air as well, hence under less pressure with the same injector pulse width so it would be richer. Just an assumption I never though about it before you asked.

    With regards to the 4 counter weight crank I am only after 600hp or so at the fly, hopefully all goes well. How was the spool on the s2000 which back end is it using?

    Big up to Bartown thanx for all the input and wisdom.

    Thanx for the comments.

    So we made some changes, I rotated the screamer and wastegate. The screamer pipe ran in front of the front gearbox mount, under the original battery position, I had intended to run a filter directly over the turbo for normal use and run it open for racing, however when the car was idling in the garage the air intake temps jumped from 29* to 38* as soon as the pusher fan came on. The air filter was warm to touch. so the screamer had to move in order for me to run an intake to prevent the turbo from sucking in all that warm air. The turbo inlet is 4" but that is mainly due to the anti surge area, I decided I would use a 4"to 3" reducer and 3" pipe.(no 4" aluminum bends on the island as far as i know) We first made the intake buy cutting an aluminum U bend in half 90 to the turbo the other 90 in the opposite direction to the battery area and a k&N cone filter. I drove the car a few hrs later and noticed a change in throttle response and a drop in afrs car would cruise in the 17s now it was cruising in the 15s. So I took off the filter and rotated the top 90 bend to a space between the radiator and light house panel behind the front grille. Drove the car and it feels better and afrs are back where they use to be. A few of my friends told me they think the 3" is to small and would cause restriction and they feel 4" should be used. I blame the air filter, anybody has any input?
    Pics will come later today.

    I plan to add a velocity stack at the end, may cut a neat hole in the grille and have it peeping out or just leave it behind the grille haven't decided as yet, my two concerns would be my daughter dropping something in the pretty hole or some random person with bad intentions dropping something in there if i put it through the grille, if i don't put it through the grille I am wondering if turbulence from the grille design will negate the velocity stacks advantage. What do you guys think?

    yes for the past 2 yrs, and on my first pulsar two years as well, allot of the guys here end up moving them for room, you can remove yours with confidence.

    Currently the box needs to be rebuilt, its seems to be the first motion bearing rattling, but I haven't had any problems or breakages and I doubt this box was ever refreshed since 1993.

    So I pinched my waste gate diaphragm changing springs, ordered a xspower 44mm with 14psi spring, got it installed today had to change both flanges, I can't weld. When we find some time, we will go clean up the map and I will share the findings.

    Hi guys so allot went down. So after changing the wastegate I went out testing the car was only making 8psi, I installed the other spring assuming the other spring was the 15psi spring. The car went to 13psi was close enough for me we did a few logs it resulted in this.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    So we went to increase boost, duty cycle on solenoid went right up no change, changed solenoid same result, we went for a boost leak test and found the bov was damged and leaking badly as well as a torn coupling off the turbo. changed the coupling changed the bov went for a pull straight onto boost cut which at the time was 21psi. A few days later we went back to tuning 25psi boost cut applied And out to test. Car felt great at the end of the pull I heard a funny noise limped home, revved the car in the garage with the car in neutral no noise, as I previously mentioned I had a rattling gearbox we assumed it had given up, jacked up the car out with the old box and tcase In with the new two days later we got it on the ground started the car let it idle whilst I was adding coolant and letting the fan cycle, engine sounded nice rolled the car out the garage rattle from drive line area and vibration in the clutch pedal. Car felt normal aside from the rattle consulted my guys we came to the conclusion the pressure plate got damaged we didn't inspect it sadly because we were rushing to prepare for 1/8th mile racing the weekend which would have been yesterday. Drained the oil in the motor fresh engine oil and off tuning again we also change the wastegate spring back to the original one whilst the engine was out. went testing car was on 15psi spring pressure upped boost slowly to 20psi on the last pull the rattle got LOUD.

    [IMG][/IMG]
    We parked the car because we were racing one way or the other

    Day of the event we went for a practice run got lock out no gears, we went back to the pit, adjusted the clutch pedal went for another hit, and boom smoke out the bonnet block got a port job. So we had catastrophic failure. will pull down this week, hopefully the head survived. Will post pictures

    I was thinking the same. I know he said this was on 20psi so assuming he hit full boost at 6.5k, im wondering what rpm he hit 10 psi as well as what rpm he has the vvl to engage at?

    With the new build the sr16 cams will be going in, I love the borg warner and I like the power curve but i want to install a double core radiator to keep temps down the borg warner doesn't allow fitment of the double core. Contemplating using something like a 6165 which is similar in wheel size and should perform similar but will be physically small enough to give allot more room that i can use the double core and possibly both stock fans

    So the head was taken off this weekend, no damage was done to the head, the head is spotless the rod broke on the way down. the piston crowns show no signs of detonation.
    Images of the carnage.

    The plan moving forward is je pistons 8.5:1 eagle rods, arp everything, cosworth 1.8 or vet gasket undecided, port and polish job as the head is off, sr16 non n1 cams and if I have enough cash or if I can wait long enough xessive plenum. I might change the injectors, I might change the turbo as mentioned before. I also need a new clutch kit, going with my trusted act 6 puck sprunless with hd pp 465 tq rating. looking to keep the torque below 320wtq and get as close to 480awhp as possible.

    I would recommend CP Pistons 9.0:1 compression, eagle rods and PTE 6262 turbo. Proven setup that should give you over 500whp with no sweat. @jdmsentra

    It looks like the stock rods reached their limit. I don't think you will have to port the head as it flows really good in stock form. Maybe just smooth down the casting marks.

    Please do not go backwards in compression ratio.

    I have a friend here with a built bottom I am purchasing, with the je pistons and eagle rods I quoted 8.5:1 but will be around 9.2 with ve head and the 1.8mm cosworth, so I wont be going backwards with the compression . If I build a block I would do the cp pistons. The rod bolts that come with the eagle rods are they reliable in the 9000 rpm region?
    I was born and bred and still live in the West Indies. I live under a coconut tree on the white beach sands and drink rum all day long. I drive my race car in short pants with open toed rubber slippers and my helmet is a Straw Hat with a tight shoelace round the neck.
