funny noise turned out terribly (400whp build thread)
Well last week my car was running really lean due to my ebcs so i replaced it it still wasent running good. Now my motor is blown and my turbo. So i am now building my engine fully forged internals, and adding a nice amr cxr500 turbo on it. Ill post a build sheet up later. Im hoping for a safe 400whp on pump.

So, what was the failure? I'm recovering from LASIK (yesterday) and can't stare closely at the pics, but I'm guessing ring lands? What was the failure of boost control? Too much boost? If so, I'd say a boost gauge should be on your list as well. IMO anytime you start modifying an engine, a boost gauge should be on the list, since you never know when you'll start having issues with boost creep, vacuum lines blowing off, boost controller failures, etc.

Good luck on the build. I'm actually kind of keeping my eyes on this for the sti engine that will be going in my 98 LGT.

Any reason why your changing the manifold?

ehsnils 01-25-2011 04:47 AM

Red Manifold = STi manifold.

Doesn't it look sexier? :p

And it's a bit different so the flow may be better. At least that's something to hope for.

So how easy are these engines to work on? I may need to be rebuilding my bro's at some point/ swapping a built shortblock with his current heads.

Would probably end up doing a similar setup with the cxr500 and internals.
