If I did my math right, the 46mm restrictor limits you to around 52-53lbs/min mass airflow. That is off the map on the G25-550, and lands you in the 76%-77% compressor efficiency island on the G25-660. Are you going to use the turbo speed sensor to control boost? Are you allowed to run external wastegate dump?

Long time no see around these parts. Been a long winter but we are getting the car ready to run for this year. The turbo kit is on, we are building a new oil pan, and the planned suspension upgrades for the year are taking place.

The new SSB Designs prototype 1.25" correction knuckles are being installed. There should be some production units on the way. Unfortunately because of the new placement of the trailing arm attachment, there was significant interference even at full droop with the back of the wheel and the arm. We really don't want to go any wider with the car, so we are opting to build new higher clearance arms.

Between the brakes and the knuckles we are going to shave a minimum of 34lbs. That is not including the ebrake stuff, but since we are putting a staging brake in the car I didn't include it until I weight all those components.

The oil pan will be center sump, with a trap door system around the pickup and a baffle plate around 2/3 the way up the pan. The exhaust will route around the front of the motor, as can be seen by the cutout in the pan.




Sorry for the crappy picture of the brakes.....

Pics work fine on both posts for me.

Looking good Zack, can't wait to see results. Especially from the new turbo setup.

Indeed. Cool to see the rears coming to life. I can't droop much more without significant fender work, may have to borrow your fender idea or fork up for the voltex ones lol. An idea a buddy of mine also gave me is that we need to either nylock or pin the nuts on the ankerman's and on this it looks like a couple other areas. The concern I had with nylocks esp on the front was heat but we'll see. Basically with the vibrations and impacts that's not an area we want to come loose.

Im using nylocs on the ball joint posts, but of course race car with solid joints def needs frequent inspections.

Ya I was gonna put one there too, maybe give it a tiny wrap with a SS tie strap. But pinning would weigh less lol. Does your provider offer pre-drilled bolts?

Metal-metal stover nuts + red Loctite is far more effective than nyloc nuts.

Well ya, but if that were mechanic friendly we'd be using red loctite on our axels, motor mounts, etc lol.

Why not just JB weld it while were in there

I always recommend blue locktite everything in the suspension. Its prevailing torque type like a nyloc but replaceable. That with good torque and Ive never had parts come lose unless driven by something else.

I think I've used red loctite twice in my life. It's meant for bolts that are never supposed to be serviced. Proper procedure to remove bolts with red loctite is to heat them with a torch. If you have to ask yourself if it can handle the heat of a torch it shouldn't have red on it.

Nyloc is plenty IMO.

I put red Loctite on my flywheel bolts, so next clutch job should be fun... But in fact there are MANY different specs on thread locker regardless of color. not all red are created equal.
