Well guys, the time has come for me to become a big boy. I'm not doing a complete Full-Race kit just yet but I will be running the heart and soul of a Full-race kit....The manifold and downpipe. The FMIC will be coming in the spring. Here are some pics of a REAL manifold. I will update the thread as the build progresses. Thanks Aaron and Geoff. You guys are awesome!!!

Mod list

Garrett GT3076R turbo
Full-Race manifold
Full-Race downpipe with recired FR dump tube
TiAL V44 wastegate
Skunk2 70mm exhaust
GReddy IC and piping
HKS SSQV2 BOV in quiet mode (removed fin insert)
Walbro 255 HP pump
Injector Dynamics 1000cc injectors with PnP clips
Comptech crushed FPR with 70psi base pressure
Hondata FlashPro
Hondata 4 bar MAP sensor
Hondata boost control solenoid
Comp Clutch stage 4 sprung clutch
Stock flywheel
Boomba torque mounts
Corsport short shifter
Corsport shifter cable bushings
AEM IAT sensor with MAF delete
Custom 3" intake with Apexi Power dry element filter
NGK BKR9EIX plugs (2 steps colder)
Modified PCV vented to baffled catch can and then vented to atmosphere

Added recently
Enkei RPF1 wheels 18x8 +35
ISC coilovers
Hawk Ceramic brake pads all 4 corners



Updated pics. Manifold with 2200* HPC coating. :dancing:












Here's the motor naked.



Here's just the mani in there looking bad ass.


This bolt is a ***** to get on because of how tight it is to the runner. You will need to start the bolt with the mani pulled out a bit.

And here is the turbo on the mani. I only got this far today.

Well guys the stuff is all in except the ID 1000s. I didn't feel like possibly having drivability issues due to increased pressure and not knowing exactly what my pressure is at this time. I'm going to install a Hybrid Racing rail with a pressure gauge so I know what's going on.

For now here are the install pics and some pics of me and Scott recircing the dump. Came out awesome. I did all the prep work and install he did all the welding. We also made a custom 3" intake tube that I didn't get any pics of because I was beat and just wanted to get it in and running.


Here's the downpipe cut open to allow the dump to be welded on.



Here's the dump cut and shaped by me on the belt sander.



Here's the dump installed and mocked up for tack welding.



Here it is tacked and ready for welding.


And the finished product



Here's the bay and the intake as best as I can get it.

have you dynod the gt2871r on your greddy manifold so we can have real data on how much power the F-R manifold gives you. I can't wait to see the new setup.

:yeahthat:

Mike it'd be a huge help to the community if you could do this before and after dyno for this part. Of course we know it'll make great power, but the proof would be awesome. I'm sure FR would appreciate it as well ;)

Looks good Mike. Should flow a lot better than that GReddy setup. Looking forward to your turbo upgrade too. Are we going to be knocking on the 400 hp door soon?

Warning: this thread is liable to contain lethal levels of WIN....
:woowoo:

uh oh!! another greddy owner-boost addicted is comming out and play!! awesome man congrats! like to see what happens!!!
Yea, GReddy just isn't cutting it anymore. Even with the upgraded turbo, the greddy mani is strangling my motor and my fuel mileage is not where it should be. The upgraded flow of this manifold combined with the MUCH larger T3 framed turbine flange will just let this motor breath soo much better. I'm also doing 9.0:1 forged pistons and forged rods in my extra Z3 block at the same time. No more messing around with the high compression. 20psi here I come. The GT2871R should make minimum 400whp EASY at 20psi. :dancing:

That was the plan but I would actually have to have it tuned to be able to get a true power number. Since I added the Apexi AVCR my boost is WAY more stable and at the higher RPM it is going way lean. And It's just too risky to go WOT to the limiter without proper tuning. The other problem is I will have different internals when this is all done so there will be no comparison. I don't want to have to drop the motor twice.

also, did u ever get a chance to dyno your current setup?
Unfortunately no. I was planning on getting it tuned once I got a real boost controller but now I don't want to waste the money on it. Also, see above posts for further info on this subject.
