    Numbers are in:

    Low boost setting numbers:
    0.75BAR
    440hp at 6000ish rpm and still 1000+rpm to go (peek a bit higher)
    580nm (430lbs) at 4000rpm (peek a tad more)
    11122011294.jpg


    High boost numbers
    1.2bar at around 4000rpm and then falling to 1bar at peek hp.

    488hp at 6300rpm
    489lbs/ft at 3750rpm! (660nm)

    But it did deliver over 500lbs/ft but then the clutch started to slip... So that is now the limiting factor for the torque. However the turbos run out of breath and will not give more top end.

    How to spend Christmas and the new year Long post warning

    Got my car back on the 16th of December from it´s 11 month stay in the UK. Unfortunatly upon arrival it was not compleate or at least good enough by my standards, so I deceded to pull the engine out. There were two gaskets missing from the rear turbo which could not be accessed with the engine in.
    Also the Crankcase went was not routed the right way and had blown out the valvecover gasket and spilled oil everywhere.

    Since the engine came out I decided to paint the engine bay. I started off by fixing some of the damage, sanding down and so on, but did not want to use filler and I don’t know how to weld. After the first layer of piant (with a professional gun) I saw that the glossy effect would not really bring out the best of the damages on some of the panels, so I shot 2 coats of flat clear coat.
    However, I did not like the flat finish on the struts so I went back to glossy for the struts, which ended of being a semi glossy finish. I kinda like the result, specially after the install of the motor.

    Let the fun begin.. December 17th.. My first ever “engine out” operation. Remember that I am not a mechanic Extensive use of Ziplock bags and painters tape to mark everything..








    Engine comes out on December 18th. Got some help from a local friend! My 9year old daughter on the camera








    Me:


    Ready for some treatment...


    Since I had access.. why not paint!

    This is where the valvecover gasket had blown out of its place due to crankcase pressure.




    The reason why the engine came out, missing gasket on the downpipe, also missing a gasket on the exhaust hausing....


    Looking forward to the install


    Biggest Xmas packet in my house! December 22nd.
    Primed:




    Painted:








    The gun.






    3 coats of paint.. looks good but the pictures don´t really catch the imperfections on the fenders.. Custom stickers also in place










    Flat finish.. too flat in my opinion..








    Finished article, semi glossy struts, with Flat/matte finish on the rest. I raelly like it.

    Motor back in place on the 26th


    Face back on the car, waiting for a new front windshield.


    VEMS in place and the MAP sensor hose going through the lid, so I can now close it properly


    Catch can fastined, and the vent now routed into the air intake pipe, before the front turbo and after the KN cone.




    I also used the opertunity since painting to cut a bit from the inside fender to be able to fit 3” intercooler piping.


    Also installed a Z3 shifter which is a great addition! Amazing feel.



    Flushed the brake system and put a new batch of ATE super blue racing fluid, also change the oil to the Castrol M-approved 10W-60



    I also had a broken front windshield so I had that replaced on the 29th.










    My assistants in the garage.




    Supersprint exhaust installed, this is a new upgrade.



    Just before the new year the engine went back in, clean, with a new valvecover, modifited crankcase wentilation, the two missing gaskets installed in the rear turbo and some other small things.
    The past days I have been chasing away the last of the oil leaks, on on the oil drain flange on the front turbo and a second one on the front of the engine where the cylinder head meets the camshatf tray.

    Some pictures:
    The oil leak on the front of the engine




    Old faithfull.. silicone gasket


    It was missing a hexagon bolt here, which might have caused the leak




    And this bolt was also not tightened.


    Faulti gasket, also the flange was not flush so I grinded it down using a 180 paper, followed by a 500, and installed a new gasket, I hope it has solved that leak.

    Ready (again) taking my 3year old son for a ride
