Hahahahahahaha this is too funny

I cant wait till both of our motors are done. But my internals are planned for next year. When they are both done i really want to see by how much you will beat me heads up.... Yes i know you will have the more powerful set up

Nothing really... Just been thinking about some vac ports... Going to pick up a catch can. This time around i wont have an icv. I did pick up some more jb weld and an aluminum "L" channel for spacing the itb. There are still a few more little things to pick up but waiting on one little thing that needs to be done with the adapter.

I hope to have some progress this week and or next weekend

So, can someone explain to me the purpose of this? How much power are you hoping to gain?

Easy... More air flow into the motor= more power... Keep in mind the motor needs to be tuned. With the internals stock And with what i have been reading should see close to 15hp or more. When the internals are upgraded... Longer duration cam and high comp pistons it will all come together. In the end i should be just under 200hp n/a

Just look at the s14, s42 ... Itbs, heavy cam and high compression pistons.. Among other goodies. Hell even if i can get 180hp ill be happy... Its all i really need for what the car is used for

ITB's are usually a really good way to increase the response of the engine as well as it helps smooth out the roughness of a high lift cam... although the horsepower doesnt seem like such a huge gain/$, the response is what your after

thanks for the clarification. Seems like a lot of work for very little performance improvement, but I can understand doing something unique though as the motive behind it. Personally I would just drop in a bigger motor or turbo.

Good luck with it though. NA power is my preference (if $ feasible) vs FI, but FI can be cheap power.

you are 100% right

dont forget that with swaps and turbo/sc builds in most cases the diff is upgraded for top end speed. i'm keeping my gear ratio.. im not looking to build a fast car.. im trying to build a quick car. My plan is to keep my 4.10 gears with the added power/tq. this will help with my autox and small/medium sized tracks times. it will be a fun car to drive... but not a fast one.

lets look at some rough costs for FI upgrades

DASC for the m42 give or take $3000 new 2k used aprox 200hp
a turbo build on the low end with used parts and standalone/piggyback $1500-$2000.. high end new parts 4k with 200-220hp @ 7psi

if i were to go low end just itb and standalone (pnp megasquirt) approx $1200 with a gain of maybe 20hp

add the cam $400
11 or 12:1 pistons $800
engine rebuild $1500 give or take

give or take total $3900 and i believe close to 200hp

these are all rough numbers i have been seeing from my research over the past year wondering what type of build i wanted to do...

Little update...

Ordered air filters from webmoto in the UK. They should be here soon and ill post some pics. There wont be much progress till june. Im waiting for a buddy of mine to do some minor machining to my upper intake manifold adapter to match the O.D. Of the tb's for better fit with the silicone tubes. Once that is done i will be able to get everything set up and ready for install and tuning
