What car did this come out of? I hope not the white widebody Avant.


EDIT: Nevermind. Found the FS ad. Looks like it was a silver car. Damn. those are amazing prices.

How was the motor running prior to the accident? I heard those CP pistons have been hit or miss with oil consumption in the 2.7 block.

Ok guys, little update.. motor is at the machine shop, getting everything setup, cunningham rods/cp pistons/034 coated bearings


Manifolds are at ASP, just waiting to hear from them on how much it will cost me to repair the drivers side.


Currently i need to sell my ASP fueling, i know its a longshot but its for a 3.0L with 2.8heads. made 560whp.


plans are to go 034 standalone, 72lbers basically full custom fueling.


reason being is i will push these 28's to the limits or whatever else breaks first. and if they run out of steam ill either be going bigger in the future or throwing another power adder at it..


with that being said, no real pictures to post as of now that you guys havent seen yet.. ill post pics when i get some things back.

What is wrong with ASP manifold?

JDM EJ1 95
02-06-2010, 09:57 PM
What is wrong with ASP manifold?

the whole setup actually was installed on a car, the motor was built under 10000 miles ago, and the ASP setup was installed at the same time, guy got in an accident and cracked the mounting tabs for the alternator off of the block, and bent the drivers side manifold

sold everything to me for a killer price. so its all basically new but the one manifold is bent and i have to swap the internals over to one of my spare blocks.

JDM EJ1 95

not the 4k one the one for $1200 plus 800 flywheel same price as spec but yoru getting a tripple plate

its actually quite a bit more expensive than i got my spec for. like i said i didnt pay the price on 034's website i was just using that link to show which one..

i paid hundreds less. hundreds of dollars that will be going towards other things to get the car done.

034 goodies on the way :) i opted for the 034 springs and retainers

other than that... just need to get the fuel system done, most likely will be a full aeromotive setup.. pump, lines, fittings etc.. havent decided if i want to snatch up the a1000 yet or not. most likely will though

then obviously assembly... need to swap exhaust valves from some spare 2.7 heads to the 2.8s and install the valvesprings/retainers from 034..

may have a custom intake manifold and fuel rails made from my buddy (www.cj-motorsports.com) depending on the timeframe though..

hoping to be tearing it up this summer

JDM EJ1 95
08-17-2010, 09:33 PM
its vast's piston kit as well.

they set me up with the custom length setup to accomodate for the larger stroke and get a better rod stroke ratio.

this is their top of the line made in the USA setup with their upgraded rod bolts(supposedly stronger than ARP 2000s)

If you dont mind PM me details of the set ups you discussed with them along with their general pricing on those options it would help me out. As well as save VAST the time in explaining it all. Those guys are busy and at times very hard to get ahold of.

thanks.

im not sure on ETA.. i hope before winter time.. but i mean its really up to the machine shop and wether or not they can get me this motor back soon.


the intercooler is the TRTT but i am planning on grabbing the bigger one because i kind of overlooked the fact that this is only a 6 inch core.. id rather just get the bigger one now and be done with it than run into issues with this little guy.

ok guys, more SLOW progress getting sick of waiting, but what can i do.

here is the car, i am prepping it for paint, and was originally just going to paint the outside and the engine bay, but changed plans to clean up and somewhat shave the engine bay.

yes the handles and window surround moldings will be removed for paint. The car was pretty strait to begin with, so all thats needed is a good scuff of the factory clear and some de trimming and she will be ready to spray the outside.. the engine bay is a little bit more difficult.

thanks! CCW Doesnt give "specs" but id say they are 18x9 +20 or so in the front(+30 with a 10mm spacer) and 18x9.5 in the rear +25 ish.. i could be way off... i should really do some measurements :P

slightly rolled.. nothing crazy. i wanted to keep a stock body.

By null (http://profile.imageshack.us/user/null) at 2010-03-20

What are the total dimensions of this? Anyway you can go with a slightly taller core and still have it fit without modifying much like the JHM FMIC? I would love to convert to a vertical flow. They are way more efficient, but cool less, but that is what the W/M is for [;)]

JDM EJ1 95
10-30-2010, 04:08 PM
# Core Size, 25" X 6" X 3.5"
# Overall lenght 28"
# 1-3" outlet and 2-2.5" inlets
# 1453 CFM flow rate
# 1000 HP efficient

Yes it says 1000 hp efficient but at lower boost levels on cars like vettes. if i remember off hand, FMIC kits like JHM are bigger than this intercooler. by a lot.

ill probably end up making a custom IC for this car if anyone wants this one ill sell it for a good price.


anyways. making more progress on this thing bottom end is assembled finally.. hes getting started on the heads now.. i bought almost brand new 2.8s, going +1mm on intake valves and porting the bowls.. as well as whatever minor port matching needs to be done for the RS4 manifold.

Another little update.

got around to working on the body a little bit.. now i originally didnt want to do anything crazy, but i figured instead of having 2 sets of wheels ill throw some meaty tires on the CCWS and rock those. so i kind of went crazy with the roller on my drivers fender and this is the half way point.. it needs some body work obviously now but it gives you a rough idea of how its going to look. went to do the other side and for some reason the passenger fender buckled to all hell so it needs a replacement.. but at any rate.. heres what it looks like.

and i think i decided on the placement for the A1000 and the surge tank im running not 100% yet but i think this will be final. surge tank is an Autobahn 88 branded tank. very cheap on ebay (~80 bucks) and its pretty high quality so i picked that one up considering i couldnt have made one for less. should work out great. and comes with some AN fittings.

http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/7566/fuelsetup.jpg

and i sprayed my HPI Sprint 2 porsche body with the nogaro + 50% pearl.. cant exactly see it too good because its a cell pic but it looks good :P

got around to welding the mounting studs for the A1000 pump and surge tank, as well as re-installing my in tank pump to feed the surge tank.

http://img413.imageshack.us/img413/6025/mountedfuelsystem.jpg

Also cut and rewelded the quarters because when you pull the tops of the arches it makes the quarter panel pull in where it meets the bumper so i had to cut, bend, add metal and re weld on the underside where it meets the bumper so it would sit flush with the bumper again.

http://img191.imageshack.us/img191/6409/imag0538n.jpg
going to try and pull the body line out with pins later during the week to get a nice curve on the quarter.

basically finished the quarters, went back and forth on if i wanted to make a body line there or not.. i chose to make one and fade it as it got towards the front. i think it came out nice.

also got a new fender and pulled it, came out much better than the one i folded in half haha..

next step, finish the engine bay, body work the front fenders... then paint.

looks awesome ricky.

what did you do with your single project?? i still want that. would give me a reason to get another s4 to actually build.



gotta come see it sometime. did you decide where you're getting it tuned?

hahha my best friend will.


ATTENTION

i need the following. badly.


Power steering pump,pulley,mounting brackets
and the serp belt idler pulley(fan bolts to it) with mounting as well...

i seemed to have misplaced them and they are ungodly expensive from audi.

i would really really really appreciate if someone had these laying around i maybe could get somewhat cheap..

funds are running super low as of now and i really hate myself for losing these parts.

I have the PS pump pm me.

single is stilll on the back burner. pass side manifold is made, just need to make a drivers side.. but im so caught up in the current setup and working 50+ hours weekly that i really havent had any drive to even think about finishing it..

i may do it over next winter just to keep myslelf busy.


heres a few more pics. got the trans on mounted one of the downpipes painted the IM.. yes yes the trans is dirty, oh well, its in the deep depths of the engine bay haha.

To do list for the motor.

Modify drivers downpipe(open wastegate dumps instead of recirc)
Fab wastegate dumps.
Delete aux pump(find hose)

and i think thats it before it throw it in.

got a little bit done on the hot sides today.. just started routing the pass side over to the drivers side... ran it just between the oil pan and the front support. should be alright it doesnt hang as lwo as the oil pan. so i figure if my charge piping gets fucked then i have bigger problems

anyways.. heres a crap shot of what i did.. as in the previous photos, the tape is just there to hold it so i can get it as close as possible before tacking and then welding.. but all the bends are there in their natural form haha.

pics of the intercooler modification

band sawed the original inlet off. laser cut a new 2 in inlet out of 1/4 inch aluminum welded it all together and viola. the size of the end tank was reduced a bit but i dont think itll cause major issues... if it does ill have to do a bit more modifying i guess.. but as of now im super happy with the end result.

JDM EJ1 95
05-22-2011, 10:31 AM
just wanted to simplify everything i guess.. im going standalone so there really wasnt any reason not to change it.. this intercooler core was also only 450 bucks and all my labor is free, the metal was just scrap stuff i had laying around.. piping was cheap as well.... so it made much more sense than spending 1000+ on nice side mounts.

also the nice thing about it is there are very minimal junctions on the whole system where couplers are used.. only on the intercooler itself the turbo outlets and the throttle body will there be couplers.. most the pipes are hard mounted as well so it will basically completely eliminate any risk of boost leaks or blown off boost pipes.

The original purpose was to maintain continuous vacuum for the brake booster, it tied into the vac system at the vac only check valve that hangs out near the pancake valve off the y-pipe

Looks like a cool build. Wondering what things you think we overlooked and can be improved? Given our kit is a straight bolt and no hacking required it delivers what we say it does.

Thanks for the good words!

Well before all.. let me say i enjoy the kit for the price i paid for it.. im not bashing ASP at all they are a great company and been MORE than helpful..

-first off, i dislike the thin wall.. i think i worked with you when i needed one of the manifolds repaired and you assured me the thin wall stuff will be fine, and i beleive you . but it seems like common sense to make these manifolds bulletproof. considering the trouble one has to go through to change them out on these cars. also i think for the money one shouldnt see a generic formed collector..
-2nd. im not sure if its just the ASP kit or if this is common... i had bolted my turbos and manifolds on before the trans and had to remove one of the turbos to get the transmission to mate with the motor. again. this i think couldve been avoided with better design? because if my clutch ever goes.. which it will.. im going to be super pissed that its a 15 hour job to replace it.
-3rd. one of the downpipe bolts.. if i remember correctly its the drivers side is currently left out.. because there was no room to fit any bolt in on or around that hole.. the downpipe turns down too fast to get anything on the stud or in there. i searched high and low for some solution for this but ended up leaving it out and hoping this thing wont leak.
-4th.. the drivers side o2 location is pointed directly at the slave cylinder hardline and the o2 sensor and the slave cyl hardline are now best buddys and attatched at the hip.. enough said on that.
-5th. i dont know if this is covered in your install guide(i dontt have that i bought the kit second hand) but the passenger side wastegate placement makes it so i couldnt put the coolant sensor back in the crossover pipe.. luckily im not running a afterrun pump so i took the thermo switch for that and rewired the temp sensor over there and plugged that other hole.
there are a few more gripes i had with it.. but overall its a decent kit but it seems outdated now and there are better out there. thanks for your concern hopefully my input helps.

Finally and awesome 3.0L build in our section that is near completion (3 liter is the way a build has to be done). It looks fantastic, and I love the attention to detail you have [up] I hope to one day do some sort of a 3liter build with my Avant in the future.

Now, hurry the fuck up and put the car back together!!! [>_<]

they are respectable cars.. i just could never drive one... i work with most brands of cars all day and it seems even comparing the 335 to a ten year old b5 is a downgrade... they just havent gotten much better as far as drive quality in my opinion where other companies are making strides ahead.


but if you enjoy it. thats all that matters.


in other news.. sitting here racking my brain on how to get this car running well in 3 weeks... the end always seems like the most stressful.. its been a long road i dont know if im ready to see it fire up haha.

excuse the noob question - what are those lines going directly into the valve covers? Is that oil or is this rerouting of the spider hose?

JDM EJ1 95

You can think of it as rerouting the spider. Just some upgraded Pcv valve cover vents

THANKS VAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. we will see what happens in the next coupel days.. i have a few things to button up and then i will attempt to start it... i hope all goes well.. in a perfect world ill be on my way to H20 on friday and probably making a pit stop in michigan. but i highly doubt ill feel comfortable breaking my car in with a basefile on the way to the east coast..

Sounds pissed off! Maybe I missed it elsewhere in the thread here, but how are you running the dual filters? Dual MAFs, blow through MAF or standalone with a MAP?

No kidding? Most of the talk I've seen regarding that is it's a total pain in the ass to pull off. Interested to see how it runs once you start tuning. [up]

im interested as well. Mike at VAST is pretty knowledgeable when tuning these cars so im sure it wont be an issue for him. i was originally planning on running standalone but as of right now, to be honest, i really cant afford it lol..and VASTs project 9 seems pretty stout on a MAFless tune.

although the car isnt driving just yet it seems the basefile is running good. i mean given im running 95 lb injectors and a full custom setup i really cant ask for more out of it.

we will see what happens when its broken in and strapped to a dyno. worst comes to worst, it wouldnt be the hardest thing to convert to a MAF setup again.

AWESOME!!

Let me tell you man, I've personally driven Project 9 around Detroit for a night on the town with Andy and that thing idles well, full throttle is stupid, and nearly everything seems 100% like factory. I couldn't believe it.. Sometimes coming to a light with the brakes applied for a while it hunts for idle for a second but that's it.

Good stuff can't wait to see the progress [up]

thanks guys. took it for another ride today and found aminor issue.. it was throwing a p1519 code intermittently which is for the cam adjustment circuit on bank 1... i found this..

the way the ASP manifolds are built. the passenger side wastegate touches the cam adjuster.. i had used the old one which obviously was dented from the wastegate.. i opened it up and found that the outer casing was touching the inner coil windings of the adjuster solenoid.. hopefully this was causing the issue considering they are basically brand new cam tensioner assemblies. i replaced the adjuster solenoid and shaved a bit off the wastegate and all fits well now. dont mind the coils and the cover taken apart on this picture this was after i pulled it off and got curious as to what was going on inside.

this pic was taken by our photographer Jeremy Cliff after i came back from the drive. Check out his Flickr(http://www.flickr.com/photos/jeremycliff). he will be doing a full shoot once the car is buttoned up.

a couple more pics.. got around to almost finishing the exterior of the car.... need clips for the front door moldings and need to paint the hood.... got the front bumper moutned... it fits terribly but im not super worried about it right now... its an RS4 bumper. on pulled fenders with a massive front mount.. i spent 2 hours on it and gave up.. so here it sits... dont worry this was not a brand new.. or in any way a good condition RS4 bumper... i did not molest something worth money haha.
