This is going to be a very (very) slow build log for my new project. I plan on retrofitting the 2.5 motor in to my r32 shell, and push it over 1000 all wheel horsepower.
Fueling: ID 2000s, Magnafuel Mp-4703 in custom surge tank fed by walbro 255 fit in OE fuel pump basket., E85
Spark: ls2 truck coils
Turbo: custom tubular exhaust manifold, Holset hx52 pro (will upgrade to 60 if need be), 4.5 turndown to dual 3"
This build is going to be really, really (did I say really?) slow. I travel for work 8-9 months out of the year. The engine was delivered today, and I will be turning home the first or second week of January to tear down, and send the head out for porting and crank out for knife-edging & flywheel modification. The goal is to have all the hardware in place and ready to assemble when I get back in June.
Looks pretty good for an advertized 170,000 miles. I'm thinking that might have been a typo, and it's 17,000. Engine is an 08 CBUA.
