I remember seeing those pics a while back. I'm glad you're recovering from this and doing what you planned albeit in a bit of a different fashion.

Any idea what the engine should be putting down?

Hello, why are you gonna use a VG trans ,instead of the VQ there is a forum member here that makes adaptor plates.

Reason I ask ,is because Im in the process of gathering parts for an SR350 also.

From my research if you stick with the VQ trans,now you dont need to make a tranny mount & you get to keep the carbon driveshaft.Plus shifter placement stays like OEM.

Z33 trans is about the same price,if not less.

LMK,either way mad props on the build

i can get vg tt transmissions for 320 each...most vq transmissions are alot more (for me at least). also, i sold all the driveline stuff for the vq setup hah so im out of luck on that. Also, either way the shifter allignment would probably be off since im pushing the engine as far back and getting it as low as possible so the trans bracket also wouldn't work.

For the class im in, its not horrible. The MAIN thing is to not have more power then the car/driver can handle and to also not have to much lag on acceleration. The turbo choice is perfect and everything that has been picked for the car has been carefully thought out to make sure that we don't sacrifice any of the acceleration or handleing. The world racing TC has even more then what im going for. Also, there are actually alot of 4-cylinder cars running 600+hp in modified and unlimited class. Like I said, as long as the car/driver can handle the power and the acceleration is on point...the 700-800hp will work out just fine. Look at all the other forms of road racing and the insane power that some of them put down...its all about the car and driver being able to handle that power.

sounds good, I forgot that you were doing time attack. Are you going to drive the car yourself?

Yes. I have been doing some time attack events for awhile in my previous cars (WRX, S13, and S14) but this is a bit of a step up in many ways but i will be taking it easy on the tracks for awhile to get used to the new chassis/power/setup and to also work out any little issues in the car/tune

CAR STRIPPED DOWN UPDATE...PART 1!

differential taken out to have the tomei differential put in and the SPL bushings put in.


subframe dropped out only after removing all the brackets that were in one way or another over lapping eachother...here are just some of the brackets


the subframe


subframe stripped down


gas tank dropped...still had about 3/4 of a tank.


all of the fuel/brake lines from the car


every last wire from the car (getting a custom harness from Touge Factory)


the tubbing in the engine bay and the speaker/storage area in the car still has to come out...200+ spot welds! ZERO RUST ON THE WHOLE CHASSIS




hopefuly the spot welds and everything are done by the end of this weekend so it can head out for cage. for awhile.

im not allowed to go with a full tube chassis. but, i am going with an unboltable tubular structure that will bolt up to where the radiator support bolted up and probably bolt to the strut tower area as well. it will serve as my radiator support, bash bar, bumper support, ect.

how much for the radiator support?

Not a HUGE problem, just a bit of a speed bump. Went to set the motor in the engine bay to see if everything cleared...it didn't hah. Intake manifold is WAY to big for a Z engine bay. We are going to have to make one that will fit. I already drew up some designs to go off of, still kind of mad though but with this engine not going in an S-chassis...i kind of expected some things to not fit right and need to be one off peices. We are going to stay with runners that are the same length, but basically come up with a whole new plenum style. Stay tuned for that!

the line on the intake manifold, would give me about 1/4" clearence between the engine and strut tower wall.


Also, all the Aero was ordered today (black friday) along with a wilwood pedal board. The aero won't be in till probably January.

That sucks about the Plenum... I have the Mazworx's proto type plenum(first VVL setup they made, was in a blue S13 hatch) going in my S14. It's about twice the size of yours... Looks like it will be a sick build, good luck man.

Going by what you've drawn even the RHD version won't clear the tower. I'm sure you already have a plan, but most likely it going to involve stock runners with custom plenum right?

I will be sticking with the original runner design that Mazworx made since they probably did a bit of R/D when designing it. The plenum design that i have settled on will give me the same volume that Mazworx has, so I don't see there being a problem.
