you should pretty good control for only 2 years welding.
Jz is right, 1 and 4, 2 and 3
im a cunt
and apparently i dont know shit...
My mistake, that'll need fixing.
Conventional wisdom is the pairing of 1 and 4, 3 and 2.
A motor out of the US from a well known formula race engine builder did have it around your way. Following no less an authority than Vizard on pipe diameters/lengths, etc and usual pairing, the engine proceeded to lose a shitload of torque. So you can be right or very wrong....only discovered by testing.
It's interesting that engines that usually have very high outputs per litre, sport motorcycles, often have the "wrong" ones together.
Nice work by the way!
So I just made it go as good as I could ..... then when I was looking under the bonnet I suddenly realised what the problem was ....
Howls of laughter for a few minutes.
I quizzed the guy that made the extractors and he said no, that was right, they did all the V8's like that and they worked fine.
Thanks for all of the input guys. Yes I certainly did pair the cylinders incorrectly but am sure to have it fixed quite soon. On the flip side of this error I will be doing a bit of testing on how great or small the difference with boost response and torque/power before and after the pairing fix. When it's all done I'll post the pics on here and post the data on the forced induction forum.
nice work on the welding mate looks real good. now if i could only get my mig to do that
What sort of inlet temps do you see and what boost levels?
There is some nice neat work there, you should be happy with that.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Very nice job, hope you have good bushes on the spark leads where they go through the firewall though! Had a mate that used to run them like that, used to scare the crap out of me, ha. Maybe I'm just soft.
Thanks for the comments. Actually, The radiator and aftercooler combo are not made by me, I only mounted and plumbed them up. I believe the radiator to be a core well known on the toyota forums. The aftercooler is just an ebay unit. At the moment the car has not been started yet so I can't give you an idea on inlet temps. If you are looking to save every bit of weight off the front end, generally tube/fin cores are lighter than that of bar/plate type of comparable size.
Nice work !
