    Thread: My VR6T 4-motion project.

    1. 03-22-2009 08:01 AM #1
      So its time to post my tread on this forum i geuss.
      Im working on the car now for 3,5 years.
      This is how it started.

      My 97 MK3 vr6 syncro, highline. How i bought it.

      The paint job was still in very good shape. The engine wassent but i allready knew i was going to pull the engine for a complete rebuild.

      So the plan is to stuff 400 BHP into the car. Dont know if im goieng to make it. But will see how far it will go.
      Then it was time to pull the engine.

      So now it looked like a Golf Country.
      The pictures are a bit low res but better will come.

      The timing chain was allready making a noise so i knew something wassent right. And when i took the engine apart i saw this.

      Thats not how it should look like. But who cares. Everything is going to get replaced with new stuff.
      More pics of tearing the engine apart.

      So the engine is going away for cleaning and sand blasting. After that a nice fresh colour of black poadercoat on it.

      Prepping it for sand blasting.

      And when it came back from poadercoating it looked like this.

      Its hard to see on the pictures but it looks like Sh**
      The coating dous not stick. Its very fragile.
      As you can imagine i was pissed.
      So i had to put all the plates back on, so it can be sandblastit for the second time and painted.

      The ARP studs mounted on the block.

      All torqed down.

      The head needed some persuading to take back his rightfull place.
      The intake and exhaust ports are bigger and the valve's are 2 mm bigger then the standard 2.9 valve's.
      Time to put the head back together.
      The only thing that issent new are the lifters.
      I hope there still ok. They diddent make any noise so i hope im in the clear.

      Some more goodies.

      There 248/260/113graden 10.2mm/11.2mm cams. Should be perfect for forced induction.
      Got my tial wastegate to. And more

      Putting the chains back on.
      The turbo on the picture issent the turbo thats going on the engine. Its just for testing.
      (And it looks awesome.)

      The parts keep coming in.
      New spark plugs.

      And very importend!! a new oil cap.

      And some more teaser pics.

      Also orderd a new waterpump and a new crack pipe. More things to come!!

    9. 03-22-2009 09:04 AM #9
      Even more eninge pics.
      Damm i took a lot of pictures.
      I dont want to hold you out, here they are.

      All new bolts and sensores.

      And the new pump and pipe.

      So the intake manyfold was going to be a bit of a problem.
      I bought a cheap ass one from ebay. But i should have known it wassent going to fit. I tryed modifying it, but it ended up compleetly destroyd.
      So new plan. Buy one that fits.
      After searching the internet i found the schimmel intake.
      Of course you all know schimmel. But i havent seen 1 of them in the netherlands. So time to order and only 3 days later!!

      TA DA!!
      Best looking SRI i ever saw.
      Time to give some more money to charity.
      Only this time i got something back.

      I was laughing out loud when i saw the turbo.
      To my standards, It was HUGE.
      luckely i had some spare time to test fit the SRI.

      Still looking good.

      looks great.. 400bhp is a piece of cake..have you fitted in the 4motion..?
      R36T AWD 1100HP


    11. 03-22-2009 09:27 AM #11
      Ordered some 400cc injectors.

      And bought a lot of stuff for the 4-motion conversion.
      Got the 02M gearbox.
      6 speed gear lever.
      Rear haldex of course.
      and a lot of drive and prop shafts.
      02M in need of some primer.

      Thats my daily driver on the back ground.
      My good old 60HP polo that never breaks down. It only sheads his skin a bit.

      But back on topic.
      Got the gearbox mount from dutchbuild. Why invent the wheel if you can buy it. Fits great.

      So putting it al together it was time to test fit the engine. And as you can see the trans is already in colour.

      BTW thats not my engine but a easy manoeuvreble one.
      Bought a sachs doublle plate clutch. And aluminium flywheel. I had a sinter first but now i dont have to train my legs.

      The flywheel still needes to get balanced.
      So got that done.

      They took out 7 gram.
      Now the real challenge was to get the gear box back on the engine. It took me 2 freaking hours to get it to fit on de vr6 engine. But finally. It was on.

      Finally. A significant breakthrough in the build.

    12. 03-22-2009 09:41 AM #12
      Got a new motor mount from vf engineering.

      Im only going to replace the front mount. I dont like to feel every vibration of the engine.
      allready mounted.

      Starting on mounting the oilcooler.

      In order to mount the intercooler straight
      behind the bumper i needed to mount the radiateur a bit further back. Then the OEM fan probable wouldnt fit any more. Then came in the SPAL fans. Safe's a lot of space.

      I also extended the injector wires with 7 cm so it looks a bit better with the wiring going under the SRI.

      Got a small issue with the wiring of the extra meters. Doessen't look right. So gonne focus on that for now.

    13. 03-22-2009 09:54 AM #13
      Bought even more stuff. This project is draining euro's fast.
      New auxillery pump.

      R32 oil reservoir.

      And a pic how the oil cooler fits.

      Working on the pipes for the turbo.

      And starting on the intcooler piping.

      It looks like im doing everything at the same time. And your right. I am. So i hope i dont forget a srew or something.
      Some more goodies that came in. My Defi gauges.

      Still needed to adapt the gear lever.
      Above the mk3
      center mk4
      and below a OEM part that make's the mk4 fit on a mk3


      My oil feed line came in.

      I had some trouble finding the right starter engine so i bought a new one.

      Painted the SRI black as it should.

      And some other pics to please you guys.

      Afer all this i started to get tired of my car.
      So i diddent do enything at it for the entire winter.
      But when the sun began shinning this year. I wanted to get driving soon. So i picked the project up again.
      So i needed to cut some metal out of the front bumper beam to make room for the IC
      test fitting.

      And mounted on the beam.

      Intake pipe. 100mm in diameter.

      And the rest of the piping all tacked.

      So thats it for now. This is what i have been doing for the last 3,5 years.
      And its time to end it. Because I WANT TO DRIVE IT.
      ow well.
      Keep you posted.
      Comments are appreciated.

      Wow amazing project and beautiful car! What EFI system are you going to be using?
      And if i can make one comment: PLEASE change out those lifters to the light weight INA ones, you already gone so far and no point in scraping those shricks you know...

      Why only 400cc injectors? looking good though man!!

    17. 03-22-2009 12:45 PM #17
      400cc should be big enough to get 400hp.
      You think i should buy bigger ones?

      Yeah, best not to reuse those lifters, especially not putting them back into the same place they were before. Will increase wear on the valvetrain.

      ps: depending on what your using to control the motor, i would recommend 630cc's at the very least, no point in building a motor like that only to run 18-20psi and maxing out injector duty cycle. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Great looking build....but you spend all that $$ and get a crappy plastic crack pipe? I don't get it.

      The OEM one wassent broke. So it hold for 12 years. A new one would do the same.

    22. 03-22-2009 03:00 PM #22
      Going for 630cc injectors wil make the car hard to run 1000 rpm.

      you can make 500 front wheel HP on 42# injectors.
      i wouldnt worry much about going to the 630s unless you are very hungry for power.
      also, dont forget to upgrade your fuel pump for the 42# injectors.
      car looks great.
      i too have a 4 door vrT. its just not all wheel drive

      One thing I saw that you might want to change. The filter for the oil feed line, Id put it closer to the turbo so you can clean it every oil change nice and easy. A clogged filter is not a good thing for that turbo. BTW: Youll love the GT3076R, best turbo for a street VR IMO.
