    calum i am using AV-gas right not. its nothing spectacular mate...just leaded 100 octane. nothing compared to Methanol or Ethanol..the latter can make tons more power. Meth is too expensive in our country and Ethanol is illegal. if i had the chance to use E85..i'd easily be making an additional 40-50whp over my current power figure.

    570bhp works out to roughly 485whp mate. i have a couple of customers who are making 425-475whp (on E85). the highest power figure right now for 5E is a lad from Florida who is making 525whp(E85) on his Tercel.

    No worries....ANY and ALL discussions...even unrelated banter is welcomed in this thread :p

    Ahh right, with higher anti knock properties I guess you can up the boostnwithout risk of detonation. But can the internals handle such pressues I wonder.

    lolol...i like that attitude

    glad to hear that the banter is welcomed,,,but will try to keep it project and engine related still

    it does seem the 4e/5e power starts to plateau around 500/550whp...so it appears that may possibly the limit of these engines??

    if your rev range is 5000-8500rpm,,,then by all means a bigger turbo is very possible...along with the nos and antilag which will certainly help with the low/mid range rpms....it your antilag fully mapable?

    i wouldn't say 500-550whp is a limit..just that nobody has pushed beyond it. possibly capable of more. nobody knows how much the stock crank/caps can take also. i guess i'll know soon enough when i decide to push a bit more.

    for now...i need to address the head stud issue (mentioned earlier)..one of the threads are messed up..one stud does not torque properly..we tried heli-coils..but did not help much as head was still lifting when we tried to go over 2.2bar.

    so i'll need to find a new block and machine it. all this may take a little while as the work shop is so busy that i hardly ever get time to work on my own car. not to mentioned funds are a little tight too hehe.

    LC Porting is doing a new ported head too which i'll have in my hands soon.

    well back in the day it seems f1 made 1300/1500hp from a 1500cc engine...so anything seem possible if the budget allows it

    is it possible to weld the offending stud hole, redrill and retap it ?..i agree that helicoil would be under immense pressure to hold given the level of power you are running.

    like any good trade's man, you never get to work on your own projects...lolol

    yes i guess if you had a big budget then anything is possible. nowadays race teams are building billet blocks and everythig else billet to go with hehe..sadly i will never be able to afford such fancy gadgets lol.

    weld...redrill-tap will not be possible mate...if its a shallow orifice..then yes possible...but there just no way to really fill a stud those this deep successfully...cannot ensure it will full evenly.

    guess you're stuck with getting a new block as doing the full machine and rebuild work over again
    well, that's what projects are about, overcoming the issues along the way to reach the goals

    So are you going for a fresh engine and re-build to same spec then ? Don't forget the photos please :cool:
    I'm going for 220-250hp soon using a TF035 and what we believe to be one of your early Manifold kits, will send pictures when I have it :cool:

    Hey guys...as usual due to work and being busy..my car has just sat in the workshop for year without use lol...

    Few updates (no pics yet though)...

    Head stud issue...found a company called Timesert ...they make allow for thread repair via a simple thread insert system. so i purchased a M10 kit to fix the issue i had with the ruined thread on my block. i was reluctant to get a new block till i tried this out..i have a feeling it will fix the issue. if you guys have time...search for "timesert" on you tube...may be useful to some of y'all too..

    Billet main caps....I've been in touch with Pro-Gram in the USA that manufactures billet end caps for the crank. i should have a set in my hands soon. buying direct from there, the price is very reasonable...Tuning Developments charge more than double the price. i have not had problems with my stock end caps yet..but i'd rather change them out before i have issues and ruin my bottom end. anyone else who needs billet caps..speak to Josh at Pro-Gram ...

    Sequential shifter...been working with a company in europe developing a sequential shifting kit for my car. i'll have the kit in hand probably in a months time. this sophisticated pneumatic shifting kit converts my H-pattern dog box into sequential and eliminates the gear lever all together. shifting is via paddles. more on this later...

    and finally...i need to upgrade my Ecu as i have run out of Aux in/out's and other options i need. so the Haltech Ps1000 will come out soon...Link Extreme most likely will go in.

    will update again when i am able to guys..

    Pretty crazy stuff.

    I'm surprised you guys don't fabricate your own Billet End Caps?

    I've watched a few videos on the airshift kits on YouTube they are a good looking setup and not overly expensive either, there are a few videos of homebrew kits too boys have made.
    One thing I did pick up on was the rate the gearstick moves at when changing gear :eek::eek:its like a blur lol. But as you say Sacha no need for the stick with the airshift hooked up.
    Keep er lit :cool:

    Imo billet mains is a must for anything over 300whp. The stock ones will work but cant see them lasting very long

    Forever pushing the boundaries Sacha, great to hear this stuff firsthand. Most of us can only dream of being at this stage with a power build :cool:

    i dont have the right material available here mate to make them. also its cheaper to buy them rather then investing in importing material and the tooling required. so yeah...

    the kit that i am getting is not cheap mate..its around 4000 euros (maybe this is cheap for some haha)..it comes with its own programmable ecu too. but yeah..shifting is very fast.

    hehe..yeah well you know how the power bug is when bitten...progress would be much faster if i had a bank account to match my aspirations heheh..sadly not the case.

    i would have to disagree with this. i have seen one or two cases where mains have given out at the lower power levels...but i also have many customers around the world (and locally) who are making well over 300 wheel without any issues. however...at around $450..they are an easily affordable addition to any forged build. so as you said..if its a possibility..then yes, by all means at that to the list of parts you'd install when forging.
