    That's one of the ones I was talking about. Ivan Tighe's BDG used to hit 10,200 during a run up mt cotton too. That was funny

    To show you what I am working with.... when the engine last run, this is the engine dyno sheet:

    It is amazinng just how much money can create such little power! It will be plenty for the road, but certainly not what we all wanted.

    Engine has
    L1 and F1 billet cams
    lots of porting
    big custom valves
    solid followers
    titanimum retainers
    12.5:1 custom pistons
    custom rods
    Turbo crank
    Turbo block
    Dry sump
    Hi lo injectors (the low power runs on the dyno sheets are with the low injectors only!)
    jenvey tapered throttle bodies

    So plenty of money spend, not much power output.

    the engine will rev past the RPM shown on the dyno sheet, but it only makes sense doing so if it makes more power, which it didn't!

    I remember reading the article on your motor when it was in your sports sedan probably 10+ years ago re the dual injectors. Hasn't the massive improvement in injectors (IDs etc) eliminated the need for dual injector setups?

    yes, I probably don't need both any more, but it was never a sizing issue.
    I ran both injectors, as the top injectors make more power due to their position in the airflow, but their height out of the trumpet makes airbox fires far more likely.

    so the bottom injectors are for driving around slowly and the top injectors are for high throttle and RPM.

    so I kept both not due to not having enough injector, but more for fire safety at low throttle openings.

    See above :P

    More progress, the car feels like it is finally coming together body wise.

    4 link kit, watts link and turrett dampers are in.

    the diff has been modified for the floaters, and the arm mounts.

    The wheel fits and is just inside the guard.

    The ride height looks like it will be a little high at the moment, need to look to see what it hits first when it gets lowered.

    no, boring quaife floating kit.

    only did it as I needed to change the stud pattern to suit the rims that I had (from the IPRA Datsun 1200 coupe) and didn't want to have special axles made.

    Camber would be overkill for a streeter anyways.

    to finally fix the lack of front guards (the yellow car guards were too rusted, the black car had fibreglass ones) I bought a pair of new standard Mk1 guards and I already had the steel flares.

    the first one is almost finished.

    the Pedal box is now in the car, pictures to come.

    So it is time for the car to come home and start the assembly process...

    Fuck this thing is awesome.

    So engine dyno thats 225hp - why the [relatively] mild L1 profile? Surely there would be a bit more to gain out of it with some more lift? Interested to know what your head flows if you want to disclose

    I have never had the head flowed, so dont know.

    Chose L1 and F1 cams for racing at the advice or Glenn Seton when I worked at GSR.

    the car is now going to be a street car only, so if anything I might go smaller, depending on how bad it is to drive around... maybe it will be fine!

    The sonata really doesnt need any additional power... just wait till you feel the power!

    There's something about this thread that tickles me just under my ball sack.

    Having owned a few eskies in the past (when they were $500 shitters), I reckon this is tops.

    10/10.
    .... because every driver experiences the destructive potential of the effortless surge of power available through the smallest of body movements.

    Time to install the hydraulic centre push throw out, the flywheel, clutch and then put the Quaife gearbox on the engine. Sounds simple, but that isnt how it turned out.


    So mock up the centre throw out and lines

    I could space it out, but then the clutch throw out wouldn't fit and I would have to space that out too, plus any complications with tailshaft position, gearbox mounts etc etc. it is a bit of a slippery slope. Quaife have a short input shaft for only 270gbp, so that looks to be the way forward.

    "Only" $700 later, and I have a new input shaft.

    time to learn how to pull gearboxes apart I thought, so I changed it myself. My friend who knows these gearboxes said it should take an hour to swap the input shaft.

    About 4 hours later... it was done. a bit of a learning experience, but at least it is complete. or so I thought.

    Motorsport tools strikes again. New rack ends dont fit... I think I need to run a tap through them as I suspect that they shrunk during heat treating.

    Finally got to looking at the rear end of the car whilst waiting for Motorsport tools to work out what is wrong with the steering parts.

    Got the brand new plate LSD out of the box, and went to install it. Good bit of gear, they even provided bearings (sometimes it is the little things!)

    All bolted in, lock wired and ready to go.


    so put the diff in the car. Now time to put the new floating axles in the diff.
    I think there is a problem here (that is all the way home!)

    Looks like quaife supplied the 820mm long atlas axles instead of the 730mm english axles..
    Another day, another screwup.
