Engine back in and running 300 HP!!

by on Nov.23, 2011, under Garage

A few weeks ago our K22 engine came back from it’s trip to UK. Rebuild and ready to rumble.
We mounted the engine back in the car and modified some minor details. Always exciting when you push the starter button for the first time again, but no problems at all. Everything was running perfectly.
To finetune the engine again another dynorun was needed, therefore we went back to DP Engineering. This time the magical 300 number was getting pretty close. Martijn managed to tune it with the Hondata Kpro to an astonishing 300,2HP with 275Nm of torque. All of that without using a turbo or supercharger. NA all the way.
Next up is fixing some minor things with suspension setup and we have to finish the front splitter. After that next Time Attack season may as well get started.

The E85 fuel system.

by on May.29, 2011, under Garage

In order to go “green” being a hot item in motor-sports, we decided to run the car on E85 bio-ethanol. Well, to be honest, it runs better and adds a few hp’s.
The entire fuel system needs to be upgraded. Bigger injectors (650cc), swirl pot to keep the fuel from getting hot and make sure it takes fuel and no air, new fuel lines and a fuel pressure regulator. I will take you trough the system. First we pump the fuel into the swirl pot with a small fuel pump. No need for a big pump, it just keeps the swirl pot full. If the swirl pot is overflowing the fuel just gets back in the tank. To pump the fuel from the swirl pot to the front we use a Bosch 044 fuel pump. Before it gets to the fuel rail the E85 runs trough a filter. Right after the fuel rail there is a fuel pressure regulator, needed to keep the whole line from the pump to the fuel rail pressurised. All fuel that doesn’t needs to be injected runs right back to the swirl pot to cool down and ready to be used again.

Chop-shop Dongen!

In order to make room for the exhaust we extended the tunnel all the way to the back seat, or what ever was the back seat. The intention is to make the car’s bottom flat, to run the exhaust to the back, half way to the back that is, we had to extend the tunnel. It was time to start chopping!!
