My 16vT is alive, big thanks to Kevin Black, i'm hoping to get a video up tomorrow
current status of my motorcross bike
what it looked like after a season of riding..which is why its now apart
and this is the quad that i play with. its a 2003 cannondale cannibal 440 with a built motor and after market suspension and such. it made 48whp on a mustang dyno with load on 1800..it made 65whp on a dynojet lol to say its a scary ass bike would be an understatement
this is all i've been working on all winter hahaha
Pick this turd up recently for a quick restoration. Runs good with a few issues. Should look fresh by the summer. Possibly a future turbo will be going into it. Here's some pics
Started pulling off the tint
Found this drill bit holding down a cover with wire hah
Pounded out this piece out and painted it because it was dented and folded in
Check out the way someone sealed the sun roof Yes that's duct tap!
Here I removed some interior parts to find a electrical issue. Turned out to be Power wire to the radio hooked up wrong and blowing the ignition switch. So I fixed that and took out the push button they put in to by pass the ignition. Then they had a 3 stage switch to run the fan on the dash because there was a short in the wires. I found a hot wire exposed rubbing against another and that was resting on the the fan shroud.
Here I pulled the front fenders.
I also fixed some issues with the bumper retainers that was broke and straightened some brackets for for the air cooler.
So that's what I'm been working on.
Just picked up a spare motor just in case I "oops" my good one.
You sure you got it wired proper, they get goofy with grounding problems. Flash the firmware too.
Ngk afx only w ntk sensor.
So far so good, got my VR6 together. Cant really think of anything else to do to it. Did a MKIV HG, replaced the junk head that was on it, ARP studs, Shrick cams, intake manifold spacer, ported throttle body, CAI, ported manifolds, tectonics downpipe, MBS 3" exhaust, gruven short shifter thingy, Autotech 7lb flywheel, Cluthmasters clutch, poly engine mounts, etc... Made the trip to Daytona and back flawlessly and sounds so good! Just needs a set of sticky mickeys...
Got my LSx car back together and running, just put new M&H's on it and waiting on a fuel pump.
The only downsides to the AFX is it only goes to 16:1 on the lean side and you can't recal the display for lambda or non-gas AFR.
32mpg just doesnt happen by accident with 4.24s and a 3.2l :p
Project change. Won't be ready till the 2013 race season. Switch from a mk4 jetta chassis to a mk4 GTI platform. Cage will be installed mid March ( $2,500 out the window). Still using the 12V VR set up. Going to be hopefully be talking to Kevin about get a lugtronics set up going. SQS gear set and a set of dss axles.
Lot of money to be spent but well worth it
