I bought this for $0. I call it "Woozy-oh", they are just the plates that it came with from new.
Never took a pic because it looked so shitty, so Google helped me out

they made a 2.4 litre version of that engine can't remember what it went in, maybe astra SRI. does the family 1 have the same bellhousing bolt pattern as the family 2?

bugle
07-02-16, 11:07 PM
Yeah Rodeos had it I think? Astra was 2.2.
Not sure about the bellhousing, but you can put a Family 2 engine and gearbox in a Barina which Sloth has done. It's just a bit heavier than a Family 1.

This is the plan for turbo

S14 T28 I got cheap ($37), only problem was that the arm that the wastegate actuator attaches to was bent a bit but I straightened it. Must've spooked the other bidders.
http://starlyon.com/bugle/barina/Engine/T28Turbo.jpg

Plan is to make a 2-1 turbo adapter off the bottom of the stock exhaust manifold.

Stock intake manifold is pretty funky. Variable length intake runners type thing.

http://starlyon.com/bugle/barina/Engine/StockIntake.jpg

Felt like making something different, got the cheapest FWD style 4 cylinder plenum I could from Ebay to use as a base, it's for an early Evo 4g63.

http://starlyon.com/bugle/barina/Engine/X18XE1-2.jpg

Turns out I couldn't use the runners that came with it because they were too big, and port spacing is slightly different. I chopped the stock manifold off after the injector bosses, got some 50mm aluminium tube, crushed it to the right shape and welded it on. Then cut the plenum base plate in the middle to bring the ports closer together. The runners are angled a bit so that I don't have to cut it between every single runner.

They're Calibra/TR Astra/Daewoo Espero front brakes. SB Barina rotors are 236mm, these are 256mm and require atleast 14" rims. Caliper looks the same but it's different. Have TR Astra rear discs to go on too, but that's a bit more work involved.

Originals were so bad that they couldn't lock up with the new tyres, now I can lock them pretty easily.

Sloth if there's any way to get side skirts and front seats to Sydney i'd be interested in those too.

Crack, yeah $150 can't go wrong. Bargain for a nice smoothly shaped plenum to chop up.
Except now I realised that the manifold interferes with the stock huge Bosch alternator. Going to have to convert it to a compact Denso type now.

Started the TR Astra rear disc brake conversion, using a spare rear beam so I can swap it over quickly after it's ready, because the car is my semi-daily driver. Bonus is that the new one cost bugger all and included a thicker rear swaybar being from a GSi.

Painted the roof because I hadn't done it yet, and it had a few dents from some bogan walking over it. There was also a rust hole on the edge of one of the gutters which wasn't going to get any better so that spurred me on to do the whole job at once. Deleted the antenna too, because I can't remember the last time I listened to the radio.
Did it the same metallic grey as the bumpers just because I thought it might look ok. Painted the gutter strips the same colour will re-install them soon.

It's just a Chinese special "Super 200P" TIG, cost around $1000 on Ebay a few years ago, and so far have had no problems with it.

I've actually done something!

I had a spare front nose cut bit which makes fitting an intercooler and radiator easy. The Barina radiator was too wide to allow for intercooler piping either side so I got a Astra radiator which is narrower but taller. Basically using it just for the core and i'm making new end tanks.

So here's the intercooler. 600x300x75 but had to cut one row of fins and a bar off the top, and weld some sharp bends to it. Only thing in the way with a non air conditioned barina is the outside air temp sensor and the horn. So i'll have to figure out somewhere for the horn to go to let out all the beep beeps.

The engine mounts aren't the same but for a Camira you'd be better off with a Family II turbo engine like the Astra or Calibra engine. Camira with a full Calibra 4WD swap would be a cool sleeper!

Thought i'd stick with Family I to save a bit of weight and because of bolt in. Although the Family II conversion into a Barina (Corsa B) is common enough in Europe that you can buy engine mounts for it on ebay.

Mounted fuel pressure reg.

Clutch, some heavy duty thing I got from the UK. "Kev-tek" clutch plate.

Astra gearbox is slightly different where the rear mount attaches, has an extra mounting point between the two Barina mounting points which means the mount needs to be modified. Also had to swap in the Barinas cable clutch throwout fork, bearing and shaft. Astra has a hydraulic concentric slave setup.

Engine in

Found out my measurements off the car weren't quite good enough and the throttle body was too close to the strut tower to fit a hose to it, so I had to cut off the flange and move it a bit.

Welded that up and welded a throttle cable mount. The VN moo cable had the same firewall/pedal end as the Barina one so that was easy.

Test fitting slim thermo fan, radiator, intercooler and turbo. The original fan is huge and doesn't allow any room for the turbo compressor outlet.

Might keep the chopped front bumper for the track. It's a 10 min job to change it. The original bumper only needs slight trimming to fit, not this extreme.

Made an exhaust, 3 inch with a cheap varex style muffler. Still have to weld in a blocking patch at the turbo flange end, weld in O2 bung and have to change the tip for a straight pipe. For some reason the tip is 3" outer diameter but dual wall with 2.5" ID.

grass built stainless mandrel exhaust gets ultimate respect from me.

in retrospect, if you used the internal wastegate could you keep the main-turbo adapter thin enough to gravity oil drain?

second go at the inlet manifold is all too common when making custom parts haha.

I should've taken a photo of the makeshift hoist used for lifting the engine on to a trolley jack. Put a piece of wood across the chassis rails then a scissor jack on top of that with rope over it.

Nah i made the turbo adapter as thin as possible already. The two outlets on the manifold were too far apart to make it any closer.

This is beginning to come together. Well done.

Legit the most pimp exhaust ever seen on a Barina anywhere in the world.

As usual flabbergastingly good for a backyard job. Is your new job welding space shuttles or something?

That engine looks pretty tough with the engine cover and inlet manifold together.
