Dood! sick 520! I can only dream that my 520 will be half as cool as yours someday!


It took alot of work to get it were it's at now. Building it while i was still limping around with stiches in my head and knee. I liked my first 520 so much and sold my 98% done 510 just to build the 520 the way i wanted my other one. And it's almost done. Thanks!

This truck is just as nice if not nicer than your other 520. You are definitely inspiring me to finish mine.

seriously!! freakin awesome man, this ones gonna be badder then the last one i can tell.. keep it up man!

Yup, this is ratsun. You can be a retard and do retarded stuff to your ride, and that's your prerogative. You can also drive around with a bear trap straddling your nut sack and a rabid ferret in your passenger seat, but we're probably gonna call you out on account of you being a retard for doing so.

Thanks! I wanted it to run last month but I went to turn it over and my starter died. So I got to get a new one and I also ordered new injector pintle's. So maybe this month it will run. I got the brakes and clutch bleed and been replacing almost every old bolt with the gold grade 8's. I still need to fix the fenders and other little ding's.

You shut up.  You're not helping

 

Not super hard.  You just gotta know the right people.  You now know the right people.  Welcome to Ratsun.

 

Fresco historia, hermano.

Got the exhaust almost done,It's going to be pretty loud I have a spiral flow muffler dumped out by the driver door. Got my injector stuff from RC engineering and got the driver side IC piping squared away,need to do the pass side and put in the iav and a bov,and find a good place for the AFM,thinking of putting it in the fender so my engine bay can be clutter free! I also cranked it over and all is good wiring wise! I'll have pic's tomorrow.

Sycloned, I know I keep telling you how much I dig this thing, but I can't help it. I think I remember tearing up when I saw what happened to the first one. You should be proud man, hell if it were mine and I built it with my own hands, I'd prolly never drive it because I'd be staring at it the whole time thinking what a bad-ass I was!

Much respect!

Here's the stuff on the ECU.
STOCK TURBINE-S14 turbine works just great as well, STOCK INJECTOR, FUEL MAP REFINED FOR BOOST UP(0.65-1.1bar), AIR CLEANER, SPEED LIMITER AND REV LIMITER HAS BEEN CUT, F/M INTERCOOLER, EXHAUST
SYSTEM, AIR CLEANER, STOCK AIR FLOW METER. QUICK RESPONSE.

Later on I might run that,I want a standalone or something so I can run it with a laptop.But that will be later after I dial it all in how I want it.

Thanks Man! I have over 300+ pictures of both 520's,everytime I come across the Crash pic's it breaks my heart. Thats how I feel sometime with all the bad drivers out there. But if you dont drive it what's the point of building it. So it will be driven and my other buddy I'm helping build his 520 to plan on going to some meets down south and Canby when were done. Ya I'm so close to being Done with it I can't wait to drive it.

nistunes fully tuneable(timing map an fuel maps + lots lots more), you can use a laptop to datalog everytiny little thing an the softwares compatable with most wideband units..

Spent about 2hr's wire tucking and trying to hide some of the engine harness and putting the braided cover over it all so it looks clean. Found a good spot to mount the AFM in the wheel well,there's alot of room in there so next I have to cut a hole in the inner fender well and gromet it and them pipe it to the AFM and them mount it, I also have a sheild for the AFM from my other 520 for it so water and other stuff wont get in the filter. Got my hood emblem too. And there's a picture of the gauges I'm going to run Cyberdyne that one's for outside air temp,but I will have them for speedo,tach,oil press,water temp,fuel level,volts and boost. I'm gonna run a Innovation Turbo Timer/Wideband unit too in all the madness.

This morning while I was waiting to go to my shop,got the spot were the AFM is going to be piped,cut a hole through the inner fender and cleaned it up,I'll put a gromet around it once I get it all squared away. I'll run the AFM wire along the inside fender for that clean look. Picked up my Pass side IC pipe on Sunday still have to clean it up and smooth it up,then add a BOV on it. So far everything is ran how it will be,just waiting on my water temp harness and fitting's for the TB water in-outlets lines,and then it should be ready to fire-up! I'll get the radiator last once I know it runs.
