Hi guys just thought i would say a further hello and upload some pics of what i am up to. Well heres some background. Last year i decided that i wanted to build my second kit car. Previously i have rebuild a westfield that was left to ruin. The westy now has a 2.0 ltre ZETEC running Megajolt and ZX7R bike carbs.
So i wanted something a little different and found a half built Dodge viper GTS replica. The car infact is not supported by any kit car producer at the minute but should be in the near future.
The initial pan was to stay true to the american muscle concept and drop in a rover/tvr v8 and get rid of the ford v6 , mainly due to what i had read about the poor tuning ability of the cologne v6. HOWEVER you guys have shown me the light and i intend to follow the teachings and stick in a large turbo and MS.
Ideally 400hp would be nice but i understand 350 with the mt75 gearbox is about the limit.
Question though, i am trying to locate turbos with similar dimensions as to what has been discribed on here, i believe 55mm in and 65mm out has been suggested ,but is this the compressor or the turbine size? or a mixture of both??
hopefully i will keep you posted with my progress.
Loads of jobs to do as you can see
jobs to do first though are :-
fuel tank and fuel system
wiring - so going to install the MS from the off
engine- turbo , manifold etc
few pics for you.
thanks again for your works!!!!!
