wow so maybe its just me but would have went with a puller fan on the rad and dont know if you realized but you mounted the intake for the turbo behind the radiator ??? why ??? so you can suck up the hot air ??? just wondering man but other than that just looks like a hell of a lot of over kill.. and why would you anadize something that is supposed to dissapate heat a color that attracts it ?



efficiency is key !

apparently im to mean to people on here. do better work and I wont make crude comments. :thumbup:

puller was the first choice, but pusher fan fit best, the car has no over heating issues.

the intake is only there until i delete the maf, then it will be moved up further. also the intake is not totally underneath it, it is more towards the end of the "v". and if or when i do a levin conversion, i'll put the intake right behind the headlight and then modify a headlight into a intake.

black is the colour i wanted it, pure and simple. the heat difference between dull silver and the black isn't too bad. (i have tested the difference on a different car that i anodized the charge pipes and the difference was 4 to 6 degrees.) i think the trade off between the performance loss and the way i want it to look was more than worth it.

this car is my street car not my "wring the the utmost power" car. and i would have hated having high polished piping on the car (the best at reflecting heat) for purely aesthetic reasons.

Black does not attract heat it reflects less light there by adsorbing the heat out of it instead of reflecting it, black anodizing does nothing to effect heat transfer from one side of a metal to the other. specially in a shaded condition of that intercooler.

This build is completely awesome, very nice fab skills. keep it up.

thanks!

what i think that guy was trying to say is that something shiny and smooth will reflect radiant heat while something dull will not. (i.e. the gold foil on f1 cars and the silver wrap they make for charge pipes etc.).
either way the difference is so small it doesnt matter.

if the coating would have had an insulating effect (powder coat/paint) i would not have done it.

Do me a favor and look at the motor bay, and all the work that has gone into it. Countless hours of thinking, drafting, brainstorming, fabricating, brainstorming, more thinking and more fabricating. He has probably already thought of everything there is lol. He probably has a reason for everything he decides on the car, don't know you personally supine but i've been following your build since you first posted it up and you do very precise work

edit: BTW where can i get myself some baller gold sticky sheet like you used on the brake boosterz?

gonna do a little more tweeking on the ecu tomorrow.

today i started to gut my spare cluster.

i am going to retain the stock fuel gauge and oil psi gauge.

i'll also be using a mitsu volt gauge out of an evo instead of the idiot light.

i'll have a new face plate waterjet cut after i have collected all the gauges that i need.

i have come to the realization that i am a visual learner so i drew out the wiring schematic of the cluster so it would be easier to follow than the circuit board on the back of the cluster

i'll be getting this lil doodad to do alot of the work
[URL="http://www.hrtuning.com/pages/category/tunerviewrd1"]http://www.hrtuning.com/pages/category/tunerviewrd1[/URL]

i'll also use some led's for the turn signals and the other idiot lights

i want to find a novel use for the old tach

you beat me to it! Just had to drop my .02 in here. This car is just dripping with personal touches. Its one of the more refreshing and down right FUN builds I've read. This is fantastic. Period.

These builds are tough for me to read. I'm too much of a slave to convention. cheers!

blah blah blah. this build has officially been glebed the f up. hood mount gauge? all that money on paint and then a bare hood with finger paint that looks like my 2 year old did it..... its your daily and you say the car has no heating issues so you ride your bike to work and back or what ??? sr's run hot normally, cram them into a tiny space like you have stuff a tone more **** around it and do a v mount just cuz it looks cool... all i can say is you must not drive this car much or you live some place cold like canada a.... not sayin the build dosent look good cuz it dose welds look decent (decent color) but other than that the form dose not follow the function. just think everyone should maybe look around before they let there toungs hang on the floor

did you read the part where he said hes waiting for his dmax hood or what?\

when im in the middle of a huge project i've had to find an alternate form of transportation too. as far as i can see this guy deserves credit for all the clean work that has been done. attention to detail is what separates good cars from great ones.

hey, I was just gunna say that....

Dear HOTDAM, who cares about the efficiency of the car. In the end its an extremely good build and very well done, HE's the one doing the work, not sending it out to get done....minus the whole buddy tigging it and powder coating. This car is this mans dream and idea that's been floating around for a while. Maybe it doesnt follow the way the rest of the rollas on here look b/c of what??? A hoodride style hood? who cares man, its tha dudes own gangsta flare and aint no 1 gunna take that from him

Big ups once again on the build, cant wait to see the finished product

awesome build - i love the attention to detail!

just a couple things to keep in mind...

i'd watch the master cylinder closely. that turbo/manifold seems awfully close and even with the shield and heat reflectors, i'm thinking heat soaking might be a big issue. given all the power, it'd be nice to stop once in awhile too have you thought about relocating it?

any thoughts yet on the rear end?

good job - definitely following this

hot dam:
i ride the bike because i like to ride the bike. i also have a 1981 toyota starlet that i like to drive. and a track only turbo civic that i roadrace. actually, i haven't been riding the bike that much lately.
that being said:
no, the sr does not run hot, you are just wrong there, they run hot when you use a crappy electric fan, but a proper one (good electric fan set up/clutch fan with shroud) will not run hot. mine runs between 170f and 190f, not that hot and i live in arizona. v-mounts help with cooling efficiency, that is why its there. not for any fanboy sillyness.
yes the hood is dumb, its a junkyard hood that is on there til the dmax hood arrives. yes i know it needs a proper vent in the hood too work correctly (see above comment about dmaxx hood)
by the way, there was no money spent on paint. my friend hooked me up on the engine bay. the entire car including whatever hood is on it will get painted when i can afford it.
i have no excuse for the hood gauge... it was pretty lame
yes the welds are good.
the car was built with efficiency and ease of upkeep in mind.
i.e.:
short charge pipe
intercooler sized for 300-350hp
short runner intake manifold
V-MOUNT (including proper ducting for it.)
v-bands for the exhaust
A/N fittings
i'll admit the cooling system is a little more complicated than need be, but it burps itself and in addition to the v-mount, it helps it stay cool.

i can tear the front of the car down in 20 minutes if need be.

i am not sure why you are so hurty about the car, if you're mad that i put a nissan lump in a toyota, or if maybe you just like sounding like a jerk, that's your problem. i dont expect or care if everyone likes this or not, it's not why i built it. but your reasons for "trashing" it are pretty unfounded and make you seem combative. not mean.


bottomline:
the car was built to be driven, it gets driven and it works very efficiently. efficiency is key.

----i have been keeping an eye on it, because i was worried about that too, but its got quite a few miles on it now as well as several hours on the dyno and it seems to be ok (brakes work great, master resevior is not discoloured or anything. i'll continue to keep an eye on it tho.
speaking of braking, the fc calipers and braided lines were done in preparation for this motor.


any thoughts yet on the rear end?

----what do mean? currently there is a 79 celica supra rear axle with a detroit trutac lsd and a trd 4.56 final.
i like the set up alot, except for freeway cruising, i might set up a second pumpkin with a 3.90 final drive for road trips (i am gonna travel the pacific coast highway in early autumn and the longer gearing would be better for cruising.)

good job - definitely following this

ah, my bad - i must've missed the part about the rear end.

i ended up going with a 3.9 on mine. it was a pain in the arse driving around in a 4.77.
