What type of EMS are you using?

16:1 AFR is high (lambad 1.09), if i would run at that AFR my engine would not be nice to drive. It would be coughing. AFR 15:1 is working (lambda 1,05) but I'm running at around lambda 0,95. I guess mine could be better tuned too.

2200rpm @ 70mph is really low. What kind of rear axle and ratio do you use? Lowest we got here in Sweden in a Sierra/Scorpio is a 3,14:1, but that would not be enough to get down to 2200rpm @ 70mph. 2700rpm minimum.

It's a very old ECU, made by Turbo Technics in the late 80's.
http://www.fordpower.org.uk/forum2/index.php/topic,8552.0.html

Yes you have to be careful, I only run 16:1 between 1800rpm - 3000rpm off boost. It's right on the limit just a little leaner & it will stutter & has to be 14:1 or :o richer for low revs.
Modern engines can run leaner & are often mapped same as mine.

Yeah it has a Ford 3.14 rear LSD & a matching 3.14 front diff that Turbo Technics had made for their cars to suit the torque curve better. It also has a 0.75 top gear from a diesel MT75 & the road tyres are 195 60 15 all = 31mph per 1000rpm
http://www.fordpower.org.uk/forum2/index.php/topic,1326.0.html

10.6 quarters is that really what the Capri was doing! Mega fast if so :o :o

I have never done a quarter with this new engine yet but it's miles quicker than the old engine which was 310bhp / 360 lbs & that did a best of 12.91 with the same high gearing but 205 50 15 tyres & total weight of 3300lbs.


Gengis runs GT2860RS turbo's he has maxed out boost wise.



You have got a fair bit left. Guessed your actual GT40



& I still have a bit to play with LOL!

Ah, i guessed so. Turbo technics made good stuff but isn't it a bit old to run with today? :blink:

Rare setup. We are not that fortunate to get low ratio LSD here. 3.36 is common though.

Yes, it did 10.6714s with a wheel lift.  :wacko:
60-feat : 1.5357s
200m speed: 163.43km/h
200m time: 6.8565s
402m speed: 208.83km/h
402m time: 10.6714s

I haven't got any time with my granny yet. Maybe next year.

You know, our 370BHP kit (367 BHP / 553 Nm) makes a standard sierra sapphire to run 12.023s  @ 187km/h . ;D
201m 7.787s @ 151.311km/h
402m 12.023s @ 187.328km/h

0-100 -> 4.555s
0-200 -> 14.546s
100-150 -> 3.535s
100-200 -> 9.991s


Yeah, Gengis is using way to small turbos.
My GT40 is maxed out, it cannot deliver any more power.  :-
You are pretty close to surging the turbos, but as long as you just don't make it flow better it looks good. :blink: (still a bit to small for my taste but much better than Gengis)

Sweet project. I read the list with the specs, but dont see anything abouth pistons or rods or such? Stock crank and such? Im building a 2.8 with a single turbo, using a scorpio 2.8 efi inlet, and im saving money for megasquirt ms2v3.0. Im nog aimng for 300 horses, but i should be able to make 250 using my single t3, dave told me the turbo should be able tot get 325 horses at max, but i dont want max,i want to hold it in one piece ;D how did you guys fit the beemer gearbox? And is it a 5 speed, or a six speed? My car stays rwd, and beemer boxes arent that expensive.

Ive read the part on the o ringed head gasket, but i dont understand one thing, how does it fit with your headgasket?

You want to trade your big spec engine for my sierra 2.0 dohc? Has only 400.000 km on the counter, first engine, cossie parts fitted, revcounter and front grille, and it has a fully electrical leather heated interior ;D just kidding haha ;D

Keep us posted with updates and such!

Well they actually copied it from a firm called Zytek, the ECU was used in F1 once but is now so basic lol!

The whole project is back to basic tuning, no fancy add on's here!

It's actually the point of the engine Grey, if I can get results with a 25 year old ECU, a couple of £100 Chinese turbo's I helped to develop with the factory based on GT2252's, an engine bore 100,000 miles old, other not perfect bits & bobs.

Prove the engine can make good power, mpg, run normal everyday cheap fuel & be reliable. The almost perfect road engine!

Then show people how to build & tune the engine within a total budget of 3000 pounds hopefully a few more engine's will be done & the 2.9 12V starts to get developed which is what it needs.

Quote
Rare set up. We are not that fortunate to get low ratio LSD here. 3.36 is common though

I have something even more rare a 7.5 version of the 3.14, only ever sold in Sweden LOL!
Took me 2 years to find for another project.

Them are very good quarters by any ones STD, well done!

Can't see mine ever getting below 11.5 unless it goes on a serious diet ;D

As I said we have tuned for different things mine is an all rounder where as yours is a drag machine :wacko:

Quote
Yeah, Gengis is using way to small turbos.

Actually they are too big. Would suit the 4.0L V6 much better.

He has not got the exhaust flow to drive them so needs NOS to get them spinning & the compressor side flows way more than he needs but is not efficient at the boost level's he needs.
But fair play to Gengis for pushing the engine, makes his drive to work very exciting! :mellow:

Quote
You are pretty close to surging the turbos, but as long as you just don't make it flow better it looks good.

I run it close to surge on purpose mate, up to 20 psi the peak HP is always in max efficiency, it's one of the reasons the engine is so strong below 20 psi & goes off the boil above.
I built the engine for a max 500bhp in theory but day to day plan to run 400bhp at 1 bar reliably.


Another one to watch here:

http://www.fordpower.org.uk/forum2/index.php/topic,9890.msg69777/boardseen.html#new

Like mine but Matts should out spool me & will in theory hit 500bhp.

Comparing these engines - obviously turbo choice and e85 if used makes an enormous difference -
surely the compression ratios are having a very significant effect as well ?

This giving you "free" power and torque without having to flow more air .

Or am I making a stupido assumption ?

Compression ratios, well me & Gengis are 7 to 1. Grey is around 9 to 1.

Grey's higher compression helps him spool that big boy but once on boost there is little difference as the turbo plus fuel difference is far more important.

I know what your thinking but the compression thing is not the key ingredient here.

I didn't know that it was only in Sweden, but yeah, then it's rare. Only a few 2.8 Sierras from 1988 got those. :)

Hehe, guess it's not the point of the car but if you give it a run, you might get a low 11 or even a high 10. My granny that weighs 1500kg should be able to the same figures.

Very true. We like to drive around with a car that when you press the pedal you should be able to outrun a Ferrari on the straights and go really fast @ the strip but also reliability is very important so high speed races at a highway (250km/h+) is not that common due to the stress of the engine and power train. It's like training your body. Our cars is built for explosive powers but not that longwinded, while yours is more longwinded but not that explosive.  :ph34r:

Quote

Could not agree on that one. The 4L is pumping so much air that it would not be good. With a single Precision 67 turbo, good for 600BHP+, the last 1500rpm it lost power due to heat and inefficiency of the engine. When changing to a bigger and older Holset HX55 the engine could breathe much better and would pull all the way to the rev limit.

Quote

True, the GT28RS would work much better on 1bar of boost because is not built for high boost. This is just the problem with running twin turbo, small turbos are not built for high boost. The efficiency is really bad when going above 1.5 bar. If Gengis would put in one GT3788R he would hit the maximum efficiency and would without any problems get 550BHP with NOS. The spool is probably going to be the same but the hp would rise a lot due to higher efficiency of the turbo over the whole RPM range.

But fair play to Gengis for pushing the engine, makes his drive to work very exciting! :mellow:
Yeah, I just love to see high powered 29ers that is an old construction from the 60s with push rods and still can deliver better than any 12v engine i know of.  :blink:

I would love to see your engine with the better efficiency and spooling Mitsu TD04H-16T. Should look something like this and give you almost the same spool but closer to 450BHP with lesser boost.


That mitsu is incredible of making power at high boost but still spool is really good.
Here's a RST 1.6 with Piper S2 cam making 267.3bhp & 339nm (250lb/ft) torque @ 20psi of boost.

Factory stock crank, rods and pistons. Even the block is std.
If you can, build on a 29er instead. The 2.8 is not worth spending money on.  :rolleyes:

The gearbox is mated with a MT75 so it fits the 2.9er. Some tig welding and you are there. It's a 5-speed Getrag 260. :blink:

We do not o-ring the gasket, we o-ring the heads. Easy and when fitting the head gasket you get them durable for 1.5bar+

Haha, no trade unless you can send over a £5000 BOA engine that i can swap to.  ;D Would not want to drive on the "wrong" side either.  :-X  ;D


Regarding the compression ratio.
With o-rings and forged pistons there is no need to be below 9.0:1. If I would have built an 29er with free hands i would have given it 9.5:1 on E85 (9.0:1 with 98 RON) forged pistons with H-beam rods and an even bigger turbo than mine, say a better spooling BW S300 or a Garrett GT4294. That would give me the power to run with a reliable 600BHP+ @ the same boost.

Very true but it still shifts, fast enough to catch Nissan GTR's down the straight at Silverstone however they simply pull away on the corners & only need half the braking distance I need!  :'(
It's a very easy car to drive fast for mile after mile.

Again we are looking at it from two different views, you are focused on power & the best possible figures where as I look for something that builds on the engines STD power characteristics to give a wide torque curve with decent power.
A pair of GT2860RS on a 12v 4.0L are good for that.  :P

The spool is probably going to be the same but the hp would rise a lot due to higher efficiency of the turbo over the whole RPM range.

The GT2860RS has particularly bad efficiency at high boost, it's not the norm.
Back say 15 years ago there was a big difference between small & big turbo's as you say but now we have more modern designs the difference is far smaller if not the same. So I have to disagree.

For a road tuned V engine a twin turbo set-up will always give the largest spread of torque or response.
It's simply a better package i.e suits the lay out of the engine better.
A single turbo wastes a lot of exhaust energy due to the heat lost, distance & pressure drop with all the extra pipe work.
Creates more engine bay heat & so on.....
It don't matter if your chasing figures but if you want the widest torque curve it does.

If your read the tech stuff on stuff like the twin turbo Porshces, GTR's or even the old F1 twin turbo stuff it high lights the problems & all the testing that was done.

That old F1 engine was like 1500cc, a V6 Twin Turbo that reved to 12,000 rpm, on 4 bar boost it made 1200 bhp & was reliable between 600mile rebuilds. It ran on pretty much normal fuel too!

Crazy engine.


No single turbo for me mate.
Not that I don't admire what you have done with yours, it is simply not what I am looking for.

This build has achieved exactly what I wanted & more, I just need to sneek another 65 bhp out of it & it's mission complete ;D

Then onto the next build, a 24V BOB with Custom made VNT Turbo's.

The plan for that engine is to beat this 12V on every score, mpg should top 40mpg as it switches to 2wd in 5th & is even higher geared lol!

Looking forward to see that project!  ;D
I'm a little on the same plans but i have to say though, there is nothing easy on the BOA/BOB compared to a regular 12v. To start building a 24v will give me a lot of problems: Space, price on the parts, scrap parts and so on... Maybe I try to do some major work on the 29er Granny since it got tones of space under the hood, guess that's good for power hungry Swedes like me. ;D

Anyways, I have some good news to tell you guys (at least for me ;D). My Company, GZ Racing AB have just bought a Dyno so in the future there will be some tests with the 29ers. Going to try to start a power project where I can compare different turbos, flow, cams and so on to find out what is best and what works best for different purposes. Will be a off work project so I don't know how much time I can put on it but I guess time will tell.

Thanks Mate!
I might have a "FordPower Dyno Day" some day! :) I'll just load my P100 and go over seas.  ;D

Anyways, you guys are always welcome to Sweden to go for a run. Roads here are great and a really nice summer day with your great love (read car) is a memory for life!  :blink:

Hi Grey i'm wondering about the heads on the 535hp 2.9er - does it still run stock 42/36mm valves?
Also the getrag gearbox, I have a few 260's kicking around but is the 265 better (this has the removable bellhousing I think)?

The heads is only match ported, valves is stock but valve guides is better and it have got Mira machined seats. Kent valve springs even though i have measured the springs on another engine and the Kent springs is softer, probably due to higher lift and to save the cam. Didn't measure this set though.

26x Gearbox is more or less the same. Go for the 265 with removable bellhousing if you can, but I can recommend you to get a ZF-gearbox if you want it to get a bit stronger.

A nice movie from 2011 when the capri run 10.6714s with a little wheel lift.  :mellow:

It's the same 29er in the granny now. Plan is to upgrade the bottom with Cosworth pistons and a better turbo. GT40 is really good but since i have maxed out the Bosch 044 pump and 680cc injectors its better to choose a turbo that can do 550-600bhp but spools faster. My plan is to get max boost at 3000-3500rpm. 800NM+ or even 600LB/FT+ should be possible. Torque heaven, here I come!  :wacko:

Nice watch that Grey very artistically produced in places!

How do you expect me to catch you up if you keep improving things LOL!

I think having a larger spread of torque won't improve your quarter's but it will make it a far more enjoyable car to drive.

Thanks mate,
Well, I'm improving because of the limits i have stumbled upon. To go above 500WHP is too expensive so why not improve the rest. As long as I'm above 500BHP, I'm happy.  :blink:
Catching me will not be an issue as long as we drive on a track.  ;)

So, I have been giving this a thought.
My HP is enough and it will cost me massive amount of money to get it above 535BHP, so I'm aiming to get better torque... well 564lb/ft (765Nm) isn't bad but I would also like to get better spool so I'm going for a more effective turbo with the same compressor housing but ball bearing and a smaller turbine housing. My goal is to get full boost at 3500rpm instead of todays 4500-4600rpm but without loosing my 535bhp.

I made some calculations on the matter and the numbers will really be impressive if everything will work as I want.


665lb/ft+ (900Nm+)

So the goal for 2013 will be as follows.
  • At least full boost @ 3500 rpm
  • 21psi (1.45 bar)
  • Above 500BHP
  • Above 665lb/ft (900Nm)

Hope the parts can hold up. 29ers is a very impressive engine but as you all can remember, my bottom end is pure stock from factory. No changes what so ever!
If I get full boost earlier than 3500rpm, I will hold back on the boost or change to regular floating bearing. Can't push the limits too much, still want some durability!  :ph34r:

I will start to dismount the engine so a rebuild project is on its way.

LOL your crazy  ;D

Only way you will get that spool is with the smaller turbine housing yet you need the bigger turbine housing to flow over 500bhp.

Will be insane if you do it.  :mellow:

Maybe will be so.
I have three different turbine housings. Hopefully I can use the ball bearing cartridge on all of them to compare.  :blink:

I will start to study all of them later on. Should be able to get one mean hybrid turbo!  ;D

Yepp, mental is a proper word for it. Not there yet...

Early vid after I fired it up a year ago. Interior and some fixes under the hood was not done there and the skirts is now long gone. Now i also got recaro interior.  ;)
On the first page in this thread you can find images from the same time.

Now that will be very interesting :mellow:

You know some of the most insane people have come up with the most amazing results all through history  ;D

I will of course help if I can.

Good Luck.

Moved the Granny to a new cozier spot. Hopefully magic will happen.  :blink:


I also tried to fit the new turbo. A cute thing with 7.5kg weight. Don't be fooled of it's size. This boosted little thing can do the same figures as my GT40, but with a lot faster spool. 900nm here i come!  :wacko:


So, next step is to pull apart the engine and rebuild the exhaust manifold to fit the new turbo. I got a lot to do at the moment since the dyno will arrive within a month, but i will try to get some time for the Granny later on.
More will come!
