Well Im now Im on the second VX(third actually but second one shown on here lol). I sold the first one after achieving 509bhp from a 2.4 short stroke build. I didnt think Id own another one but here I am lol. Original plans were to keep it simple with not to much bhp and just have some regular track time. That thought lasted about two seconds.
I brought the car as a track ready stage 2 forged supercharged car with around 250bhp. I then decided with the kind assistance of Neil and Joe to carry out the following mods which are still being undertaken....
Blower comp cam upgrade
Aquamist meth injection kit - Ill be running mw50 again as per my last build
OBD pro software
Ported M62 supercharger
LS4 throttle body
Bosch injector upgrade
Wideband lambda kit
Front Louvres - awaiting fitment at the body shop(IKustoms)
Coupe conversion - awaiting fitment at the body shop
Pro alloy rad
New charge cooler pump
Ive probably forgot some bits but I think there the main ones lol. When the car returns apart from a set up on our flat patch and some tidying up in places Ill run the car as is for the rest of the year. My thoughts then are to remove the motor and carry out a bulkhead mod to remove the window and gain some space in front of the motor. Rebuild the motor completely with Datton sleeves again and my custom pistons to make the motor a 2.4 like my last one, upgrade all the valve train and cams again possibly. And then due to already having produced big power with my last harrop car I thought of twincharging this one. A Harrop coupled with possibly a gt3071 ish sized turbo, maybe a slightly bigger turbo Im not sure yet I need to have a think about it more. Lets see this time if we can break 550-650bhp.
Ill try keep this car a little longer than my last one and attend some avents so we can see what the car can do Round a track rather than just on my rollers and local roads!! Some attention and thought will need to be given to tyre/wheel size for traction.
There my current plans/thoughts anyway...I hope I can make most of it happen. Im booked for the National at angelsey so it will be good to meet some of you this time round and put faces to names etc.
