Made some calculations today.
If my coupe weights around 840kg and it has power of 117Kw
It's going to have ~7.2Kg/Kw. And Finnish law says that turbo charger is same as engine swap. And when doing engine swap, weight/power ration must not go under 7.
So it's getting close! Haha, I'm trying to get that 140-160hp out of this little beast. More pictures uploading on weekend!
And found contactless ignition for 4-cylinder engine. And send a ordering message for missing instrument panel. And what else....
Just going to clean up the whole engine. Oh, the crankshaft has to be little oversized, because bearings were terrible! But getting new ones probably next week.
New steel parts cut for rusty areas. And some measuring need to be done with horizontal intake (110mm aprox) and with new dellortos, and still need to fit pressure chamber there, going to be tight!
Hope you guys are interested in with this project, send me some ideas to make this system better!
Oh and I'm taking volvo 740 radiator to this engine, should keep the temps lower! And thinking of getting another fan to the motor, bigger and with more wings=more airflow, right?
RULE: Do not rush to the forged piston store every time a turbo engine needs preparation
If it doesn't work well, chrome-plate it.
