my name is Fabian, I am 28 years old and I come from Germany.
My car is well known in the german community and I have been there for a long time.
Now I would like to show my project to you guys.
But first I want to tell you my story how I came to this graeat car.
My Dad bought his Speedster as a new car in 2001.
I was 10 years old when we collected the car and I was in love from the very first time I saw it.
My Dad always told me that when I am grown up and have enough driving skills that his Speedy will be mine one day.
I can tell you that he still has his Speedy. But the good thing is, that I have got my own one.
I bought mine in 2011 from a guy who did meaningful and track oriented modfications to it.
It was SC with 250HP, Öhlins Suspension, AP Racing 4-pod calipers, 315mm AP lightweight discs and Kumho V70 in Soft / Medium on DTC Rims.
A fast dream car
But as you could imagine it was not fast enough after a short time.
So I went on and put a B207 engine in and mounted the Harrop 1320.
That made about 330HP with 80mm pulley and oem cylinder head.
Could not make more without a proper cooling system.
So I built a double radiator at the front, dualpass in the back and the big Bosch water pump.
It was helpful but to get the results that I needed I had to install the Aquamist system.
Everything was running fine until my engine blew up.
The connection bolt between piston and rod failed (JE Pistons).
So now I want to have a strong engine with good material.
Here are the specs from my new engine:
-cylinder wall support
-Z22SE Crank machined to -6mm diameter
-Crankshaft plasma nitrocarburized and fine balanced
-C20LET Mahle Pistons
-Special 143mm steel Rods
-weights of pistons and rods adjusted to under 0,2g in difference to each other
-compression ratio 9,0:1
-Cylinder head ported with ZZP Stage 2 camshafts
-intake manifold machined and added fitting pins
-clutch will be updated to 8 pad sintered metal
Tobias Kroll from KT-Fahrzeugtechnik did all the machining. I am very happy. It looks so great
-Racelogic Race TC
-315mm AP brake
-carbon coupe back
