Lets hope this block lasts a little while before cracking.

The Goods:

Bottom End:
Early Style S4 Block (larger holes in main webbing, more likely to crack)
Stock Pistons
Stock Crank
IE Rods
New Main Bearings
New Rod Bearings
New ARP Rod Bolts
New OEM Head Bolts
New Headgasket
New Rings
Ball Hone the block

Heads:
RS4 Cams
Supertech Valvetrain
2.7 stock port heads

Trans/Clutch:
***edit **** going with Southbend Stage 4, Four puck sprung disc.
Upgraded 1-2 shift collar and syncros

Turbos and supporting cast:
SRM K24 Billet RS6 Turbos
SSAC 3 inch to 2.5 downpipes
SSAC twin 2 replica catback
Vast RS6 inlets
AWE Intercoolers
SRM Bipipes with meth bungs

Fueling (breaking in on pump gas and old fueling setup)
Vast 90mm Maf
1000cc EV14 Injectors
Dual In tank pumps from SRM - http://sillyrabbitmotorsport.com/twin-450-fuel-pump
Custom -8 feed and -6 return lines
Custom bulkhead for tank from SRM
IE Fuel Rails


Other stuff:
034 Snub Mount
034 Silicon Spider Hose
OZ Superleggera wheels


Bunch of other crap I am forgetting. Most of the stuff is carry over from my rs6 setup, but I am building the motor and doing the necessary fuel upgrades for a serious e85 car. Goal is at least 500-550awhp with somewhere in the ballpark of 125-130mph trap speeds. On to the build pictures...

Start, just back from PA, backed her into the garage and started tearing it apart. Stuff happened fast the first day!

The piece holding the fuel pumps looks similar to what amdisthebest runs in his car.
The picture displaying the fuel pumps is not from an s4.
Is your in tank setup completed yet, or are you giving yourself time to copy how it was done from those who have done it already?

I'm probably one of the first to successfully pull it off as it is harder than it appears to do, unless you run 2 different fuel feed lines through the lid.

You will probably be the 2nd person to do this, so please post pics.

I plan to run 2 feed lines through the bulkhead (hence the custom bulkhead cap that is easier to modify than the stock one) along with custom wiring with nice thick wires for the fuel pumps. I plan on combining the lines just outside the tank and running -8 feed to the rails.

yes it is very similar to amdisthebest setup but his is 3d printed and these are cnc from delrin stock. It's hard not to look the same when it's 2 pumps in that tiny space. I have not picked up the parts yet so mine is not complete. I will post detailed pictures when I do the full setup.

Why are you choosing to build an AE block?

Among other reasons, timing and cost were a factor.

One big reason is to test a theory of what breaks blocks: 550-600wtq+ or accidentally passing MBT at 550-600wtq+

I plan on getting on a dyno for pushing the power levels so I don't pass mbt on the street accidentally.

One big reason is to test a theory of what breaks blocks: 550-600wtq+ or accidentally passing MBT at 550-600wtq+

I plan on getting on a dyno for pushing the power levels so I don't pass mbt on the street accidentally.

Meow any updates on this?

Changed clutch plans, went with a southbend stage 4 instead of the fx850 due to budget and time constraints. Might regret this later... we will see.

Also going to get it broken in on pump gas and meth for h2oi and then do fueling over winter. Going with Sean@SRM's new drop in fueling option which is legit as heck for b5s. Dual intank pumps and custom lines to big rails. Very similar to what I was planning before but with nice billet parts and wiring solution all in one.

Is MBT dependant on boost level, i.e. does MBT come lower if boost is risen in given rpm area?

Is MBT dependant on air flow level through the engine? i.e. for example k04/22psi/4000rpm vs k24/22psi/4000rpm

Before your MBT tests in practice, what do you think in theory, on what timing level your k24 setup's MBT (+- few degrees about) will be in 4000 - 5000rpm area? 5000 - 6000rpm area? 6000 - 7000rpm area?

Sorry Boom's I couldn't get the clutch pulled and over to you by the time you needed it! SB Stg 4 though is great, that was my old clutch before I went the 850 route, you will love it! Just don't do multiple 4500+ launches...

you should talk to sean.

im pretty sure he is making 648hp with these now (take that number with a grain of salt as all dynos are different).

his car moves out though.. 128mph traps (on an old tune or something i believe).

I am currently weighing tuning options. I will no longer be tuned by Lee aka BritishTurbo. I will be talking with Daz and a few others and potentially doing my own tuning moving forward. I am slowling assembling the things back on the engine and will get some pics up some time next week. Thanks for the support from this community, I try to be very open with my build and cars performance specs. My past setup I ran on the dyno with and without meth, ran at the track with and without meth and ran many many many logs with and without meth to gather a bunch of fats times and information. I will try to continue this trifecta of information with the SRM k24 7+7 variant turbos.

Thanks [up]

MBT is dynamic, it depends on TONS of factors, RPM, Cylinder Pressure, Combustion Temperature, Fuel, tons and tons of factors. The key idea for finding it on a dyno is to increase timing until power no longer increases. I will be sure to post lots of information when I get it on a dyno. A good friend of mine is installing a dyno in his shop here in Detroit and I will be spending a day on there dialing in and data longing it all. I will make a large post about dialing in the MBT for E85 on these turbos and setup.

Wrapping the china DP's is probably not the best idea considering the amount of moisture a warp will hold in... They rot pretty good without anything just being exposed to the elements.

I've seen what just one winter will do to a set of tho's DP's... and it's pretty bad when I compare it to my china DP's that I had ceramic coated which looked like new even after 3 years of use. Just FYI.

Lookin good!

Check the tbolt clamps off the compressor outlets, they will hit the subframe if not in a happy place.
I usually run them on the bottom and pointed toward the center of the car with just a little downward angle to follow the subframe.

I don't know how tight you were able to get your metal zipties, but the last time i used a set it was tough to get them as snug as I would like (as they back up a little bit before the internal fastener fully clamps the tie). So i used worm gear style clamps at the ends to keep everything nice and snug. Just a thought in case you encountered any looseness with your metal ties on the ends of your wrap.

Looking forward to hopefully seeing some new videos. Keep up the good work [up]

Looks good! I love the look of wrapped downpipes.

Although, I'm not sure you want that sort of wrap on the compressor inlet pipes. It's just going to insulate them and keep them hot especially right next to the exhaust manifold. The air is going to heat up after the turbo anyways, so I'm sure the difference will negligible. But it's something to think about.

Build is looking good man! That exhuast wrap looks great too, but unless the SS bands are really tight I'd be a bit concerned that they may loosen up over time (due to expansion/contraction of the pipes and compression/breakdown of the wrap material), and you may end up with a bunch of them sliding down and rattling against the firewall or somewhere else. Just a thought... [up]

The thing he's talking about is thermal wrap is made to keep heat in for IE exhaust. For cold air on the intake side their is heat barrier which keeps heat out.
I'm using DEI gold heat barrier wrap for my intake stuff and I ceramic coated & DEI titanium wrapped my exhaust components. Also going to use 2 little turbo blankets.

Yup. I didn't use the gold kind, but it's still dei (I hear gold is better though)...

The air is going to heat up after the turbo anyways, so I'm sure the difference will negligible. But it's something to think about.

That's not exactly how heat transfer works. Gold reflective wrap would have been ideal as I was attempting to minimize convection and radiation heat transfer to the pipes. By creating an insulating barrier I was isolating the convection heat transfer a fair amount, reducing the effectiveness of hot air, but once an engine bay is hot and the pipes stabilize there is not much you can do about the pipes being a certain temperature. They will not "cool off" from externally radiating faster than other parts will radiate to them. The temperature of the manifolds surface was probably the biggest concern and would have been most helped by coating the manifolds. Like rob said, its the most important part! The radiation heat transfer during a pull of the hot hot hot manifold and the cooler inlet will be the driving factor for heat transfer to the inlet. I attempted to reduce this by using the spare left over exhaust wrap I had as an insulating barrier between the hot manifold radiating to the inlet pipe. If I wanted to minimize the transfer the I would have coated the manifolds, warpped the pipes like they are with exhaust wrap and then also used gold reflective tape on the outside of the exhaust wrap. I really didn't care that much as they were not coated before and that didn't stop my car from being plenty quick. I had extra from my exhaust and used it on the inlets.

Radiation heat transfer equation mainly depends on the temperature difference of the very hot manifold and cooler inlet:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/math/1/7/4/17400f908f8b69f5d7c69a1d0f575e87.png



I still have even more left over so idk what else I might do... might do the maf pipe too as that sucker gets hot.

The barrier will help even if it is not a reflective surface. I agree that it may not matter at all due to the heating that takes place inside the compressor. I was impressed by how well stock, uncoated, exhaust manifolds contain the exhaust gas temperatures (http://www.myaudis4.com/2014/09/24/exhaust-manifold-temperature-fluctuation/).

I honestly doubt I will ever see or be able to quantify any benefit of just the warp alone. I would not advise everyone to go out and pull their motor to wrap their inlets, but I had it laying around and had tons of metal ties to use too...

If you did that test with an IR thermometer it would be really interesting to see the actual surface temperature of the manifolds and how it differs with and without coating. I might be in a position to do that testing. Would like to be able to do it on the dyno though...

I have done the uncoated manifolds (http://www.myaudis4.com/2014/08/31/exhaust-manifold-ir-temp2/). Another month or so and I may get around to checking a ceramic coated pair.

That's not exactly how heat transfer works. Gold reflective wrap would have been ideal as I was attempting to minimize convection and radiation heat transfer to the pipes. By creating an insulating barrier I was isolating the convection heat transfer a fair amount, reducing the effectiveness of hot air, but once an engine bay is hot and the pipes stabilize there is not much you can do about the pipes being a certain temperature. They will not "cool off" from externally radiating faster than other parts will radiate to them. The temperature of the manifolds surface was probably the biggest concern and would have been most helped by coating the manifolds. Like rob said, its the most important part! The radiation heat transfer during a pull of the hot hot hot manifold and the cooler inlet will be the driving factor for heat transfer to the inlet. I attempted to reduce this by using the spare left over exhaust wrap I had as an insulating barrier between the hot manifold radiating to the inlet pipe. If I wanted to minimize the transfer the I would have coated the manifolds, warpped the pipes like they are with exhaust wrap and then also used gold reflective tape on the outside of the exhaust wrap. I really didn't care that much as they were not coated before and that didn't stop my car from being plenty quick. I had extra from my exhaust and used it on the inlets.

Radiation heat transfer equation mainly depends on the temperature difference of the very hot manifold and cooler inlet:

I still have even more left over so idk what else I might do... might do the maf pipe too as that sucker gets hot.


^^^^Very well elaborated answer.

Agreed.

I have a dumb question: Does anyone make/sell exh. manifold blankets like they do for turbos? I doubt there is something for the B5, but maybe something universal from Jeggs/Summit? Seem's like a quick/easy solution that could be installed afterward if needed, and would really help cut down on radiant heat transfer... Convection is obviously still a problem due to the size of the engine compartment and the lack of airflow, but at least you can cut down on the immediate problem which is thermal radiation.

Ceramic coatings may look cool, but they're expensive, generally don't last very long, and aren't nearly as effective as thermal blankets (i.e. those multiple glass insulation + reflective layers)

Thanks for the very thorough answer. Creating a barrier between the manifold and the inlets makes complete sense. Just seemed like it would almost exaggerate the effects of heat soaking. But you're right, once stuff is hot... it's not going to cool down anyways, especially in our engine bays lol.

The inlet pipes have cooling air passing through them all the time, so slowing the rate of heat transfer into the pipe should be beneficial, in theory.

He did 6 pieces for me for $300. There's also 2 different temperature ranges the silver is 1,400*F and the black is

Good tip - Thx!

Yeah, don't get me wrong: Ceramic coatings definitely have their place, particularly when there isn't room for anything else or aesthetics are more important to the user... But even a simple thermal barrier/blanket is way more effective, and probably cheaper.

Not our headers, obviously, but you get the idea:

Gotcha. And that makes sense, the intensity of the radiant heat would be less brutal. But once everything is nice and heat soaked, it just seems like they wouldn't recover well from that. Then again, I'm no engineer. I've seen your blog and it looks like you're pretty familiar with the testing and analysis of heat transfer, so I'll quit with my speculations lol

Shit is happening so fast when you are running these cars that I doubt any amount of thermal witchcraft is going to make noticeable diff.
Air is just moving way too fast to have enough thermal contact time/area for the magic to happen.
Stuff that xfers an appreciable amount of heat is going to look a whole lot more like an intercooler than a piece of bent piping.

Any gain is a gain (regardless of how minuscule), and some of the things we do to these cars is just for shits and giggles and more of a hobby thing.
I think some people put waayy too much stock in what thermal wraps/coatings do, but stuff like this is half the fun of hot rodding you own car.

SRM Fuel Bulkhead and Dual in-tank pumps installed. The install was extremely easy and straight forward. I double checked the pre-wired harness included and it checked out perfect.

http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l214/boomerw/s4fuel2_zpss3z10lmm.jpg


I used all Fragola fittings and black nylon line. I ran the dual -6 AN feed lines from the bulkhead, which come from individual pumps, to a y fitting which adapts to single -8 AN. I then ran that to a -8 AN summit racing fuel filter pictured below. That was then wrapped with a silicone hose cut in half and a hose clamp was used to hold it up in place. I also zip tied the -6 AN return line up in place. Both the feed and return lines fit in the stock fuel line clips under the body. This worked great to keep the lines off the ground hahaha.


http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l214/boomerw/s4fuellines2_zpshnthvvxu.jpg


This odd small fitting connects the y fitting and the fuel filter. I could have done this cheaper... but I already had the fittings. These fragola fittings are really easy to assemble and look great.

Sorry for the cellphone picture. I installed IE rails with -8AN oring fittings and an Aeromotive FPR (painted blue). I ran the rails in series with the end fuel injector on the bank I am monitoring wideband o2 signal. This will help see if lean out at all on the big end.

I ran a y fitting with one part going to the regulator, the other going to the rail which feeds the other rail and the outlet goes to the other side of the regulator. I used the regulator to control pressure of both rails.

You could just feed from the front, run a y to feed both rails and the both outlets go to both sides of the regulator. That's an option as well. I ran the first way though.

Yea everyone was telling me to feed each rail separately. So I guess it's not that critical after all.[confused]

Guys do it with v8 stuff also, but I feel if you can split the two off it would be better. A lot of hungry injectors pumping e85 can cause a lot of pressure pulses and alter the flow quality from the first to last injector in series. I doubt it would be a issue if you run large lines and big bore rails, etc, but I'd rather shorten the path if possible.

The bores on these IE rails are ridiculously massive, no need to worry about quality of flow from first to last injector, but if you do, that is why you run it in series like I have. This will allow me to see if the last injector goes lean at all, because I have a wideband monitoring that bank. Last on the rail is the first one to fail, so that is what I will watch. That is why I ran them in series, but others can do whatever they want.

Custom cluster, S4 cluster with RS6 faces installed in it with RS4 binary to run it all. Looks a million times better than the stock s4 cluster.

The 4 inch exhaust (wasn't mounted so thats why its crooked) looks like a damn school bus exhaust, it sounds amazing though. Also the ecoboost mustang is a lot of fun.

Filter location, I might tweak this. These are custom AFE filters I ordered.

Catch can installed, here is how I ran the hoses (they look shorter than they really are under the intake manifold, I changed the plastic t fitting out for a metal one that I made from threaded rod and a galvanized steel fitting pictured in the second part.

I had the exhaust welded to match the downpipes, it sounds mental.

She is back on the road and looking mean as hell. I cut the rs4 bumper so the intercooler gets more airflow. Not everyone will like it, but this isn't everyones car.

Ever think of doing something like this with your filler plate cutout to blend a little better with the RS bumper? Or painting the IC black too?

Love it! Probably will do something like that, not sure which one yet though. I need to fix the crack in it and paint it, so that mesh might look good painted and molded.

Also, test fitting new wheels.

+1 for deets on the cluster. Where'd you get the gauge faces? Where'd you get the binary? What'd you flash it with?

Cluster is a combination of parts made by Daz for me. The faces were off an oem rs6 cluster, the cluster itself was from a stock s4, the binary was pulled from an oem MPH rs4 cluster, and the flashing was done by Daz... no clue how to do that myself.

SRM Fuel Bulkhead and Dual in-tank pumps installed. The install was extremely easy and straight forward. I double checked the pre-wired harness included and it checked out perfect.



http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l214/boomerw/s4fuel2_zpss3z10lmm.jpg


I used all Fragola fittings and black nylon line. I ran the dual -6 AN feed lines from the bulkhead, which come from individual pumps, to a y fitting which adapts to single -8 AN. I then ran that to a -8 AN summit racing fuel filter pictured below. That was then wrapped with a silicone hose cut in half and a hose clamp was used to hold it up in place. I also zip tied the -6 AN return line up in place. Both the feed and return lines fit in the stock fuel line clips under the body. This worked great to keep the lines off the ground hahaha.

Exaclty what point did you adapted the dual an6 lines to one an8? Looking at the pictures somewhere between bulkhead and fuel filter but where is enough space for the Y-piece?

I thought the dual pump outlets are merged with a Y fitting inside the tank with the SRM double pumper?

Not 100% sure but in SRM kit the feed lines goes dual an6 all the way to the engine bay where they merge (?) But I'd like to do it like Meow with one an8.

nope, the y is outside the tank, 3 -6an bulkhead fittings on the tank, 2 for pumps and 1 for return.
