Lance's G40 turbo with ITB's
« on: July 25, 2010, 04:30:32 pm »
I bought the car a good few year ago now from a lad called cliffden it was still funning the G charger R1 spec, looked like this,




I then got bored so sold the standard charger and fitted a eaton charger with a front mount i/c




I ran it like that for a year or so and then melted a piston




So i then went onto going 1341cc rebore with forged pistons and rebuilt the whole engine with all vag parts.


it then looked like this,

fitted 280mm brake conversion, compomotive 15" wheels and afew other bits and pieces.


i ran it like that till around 15 month ago to wich my newman camshaft snapped! too a few valves with it so was a goood excuse to start buying parts to make it better again, so i sold all my eaton charger and kit with other bits to fund my new parts,

k03 turbo

turbo manifold

DTA standalone management

oil cooler

rear axle bushes

jabba heat shield and cotten green air filter

my mate sleaved my drive shaft

some 300mm 4pot brakes

top mounts

vernier cam pulley from cat cams

cat cams turbo spec cam shaft

water injection

slim line fan

so i got to start on the car.
stripped the engine down and rebuilt it again


bought a PPP subframe/wishbone conversion and fitted it


fitted brakes and also had some coilovers made up


got another head and sorted it


built the head up with new tappets and the cam plus pulley fitted it to the block along with the turbo


i then fitted the engine plumbed in the intercooler to the turbo and oil cooler also a seperate rad for the turbo water cooling



got my comps refurbed



got some track wheels with some slicks fitted




then got some motorbike throttle boddies to modify and fit to my inlet


cut my standard inlet up


tig welded to my inlet flange so the inlet rubbers could be fitted



couldnt use the standard fuel rail


so made another


started to modify the plenium




sizing up



fitted and fitted the dump valve


modified the angle of the boost pipe


made a blank to fit where the dizzy went

then fitted coil pack just a mock up really





thats as many pic's as i have on my phone, i have more on my camera of fitting other things.

what are peoples thoughts?

it might not make a big performance difference but i just wanted to do something different and interesting.

will be mapping it soon and should be all sorted to take to leeds vw festival for a run out.

cheers
