    Thread: Twin VRT Drag Car Build

    1. 06-08-2013 10:48 PM #1
      Hi, I am building a new drag car. I have been hesitant to start a thread on vortex, but what the hell. I am going to need some help from you expert's so I think its worth all the flaming. I have been out of the vw racing mix for about 5 years. I have been itching to build another race car, this time I am going BIG. My goal is to join the 8 second club With 1600+ AWD HP I dont think that is too lofty of a goal.

      So here is some info:
      Looking to build a twin engine drag car with 12V vrt's

      Engine:
      SP stage 3 short block
      SCCH ported 12V heads
      TT big valves upgrade
      titanium retainers
      Solid lifters
      TT 288 solid cams
      SP intake
      3" throttle body
      AFI twinn Scroll turbo mani
      Precision pt 1000 AWIC
      Garrett GTX-4294R turbo

      Transmission/Drive terrain
      02M FSR case
      SQS custom gear kit (see photo for ratios)
      Peloquin diffs
      SQS SEQ-E shifters
      Clutch Masters 850 twin disc Race
      Drive shaft shop custom stage 5 axles
      SDezego hybrid mounts

      going to run wilwood pedals with twin masters to operate the dual clutches. And 2 seq-e shifters that can operate the trannys separately to do both front and rear burnouts separately.

      TIG welded chromolly roll cage and chassis


      Car is at the Hanksville hotrods in denver, They are doing the chassis and roll cage, this is what is done so far..

      These are the gear kits I have. They are being installed at SP right now, waiting on the peloquins..





      Turbo manifolds Im going to use, Should be ready this week...

      So, the first thing I am going to need help with is, What A/R housing should I use?
      I am ordering a turbo's next week, as the chassis shop needs it for mock up.

      I am going to need a wide power band to accommodate the super tall gears.
      RPM drop of 2350 looking for a good powerband from 4650 to 7000 RPM

      This is a DYNO sheet of a 12V Vr that I found on the net. It looks like It would work for my gearing, but I would like to do much better.
      Plan to run on E85 with lugtronics.

      Also anyone know what throttle bodies are an easy bolt up to the SP intake? 3"




      Im going to be making some custom rear control arms. Anyone know if I should lose the rear sway bar or keep it?

      There is no word for the amount of legitimacy that is this build.

      Looks like I got burned by Brad Ratliff from AFI turbo. Just realized they are out of business and JDL is the new company making manifolds. Had to file paypal claims

      Well, brad finaly emailed me back the other day and assured me I was getting the manifolds soon. But he has been telling me that for weeks, we'll see, I really hope AFI comes through..
