Great mods Gratulations
Please send me cost of tranny on PM
front bonnet is ready - weight 4.5 kg /original bonnet weighed to 18 kgs/
adjustable front lower arms /very similar to Almera kit car ones/. Not a final product, sandblasting and comaxit cover will be done during this week
some new progress =
front adjustable lower arms ready
rear axle - adjustable, tubular from CRMO - sandblasting and comaxit will be ready this week...
final pictures of the rear axle
and car looks like this - prepared for sandblasting and zinc cover /sand blasted and zinc covered will be suspension, frame of the windshield, engine bay, front + rear arches.../
We are starting with sand blasting tomorrow and car goes to the paintshop within the next week
Incredible amount of work gone into this!
What are you planning on using the car for? Hill climbing?
many thanks! It will be a car for fun = hobby car - for hills, track days and weekend driving
didn´t update last parts which arrived from USA =
CP Pistons, 87mm, 12.5:1 - for more fun
ATI super damper
all new OEM Nissan bearings from Jagy - main, rod, thrust bearings
new head bolts - OEM Nissan /didn´t want ARP as they are not in correct length for SR20/
87mm SR20VE metal head gasket by Mazworx
ARP rod bolts
Mazworx SR20 valve cover hardware kit
Mazworx SR20 exhaust studs kit
engine block is already drilled and honed using a SR20 torque plate. We are porting the head and will start to assemble the engine, within the next week.
Car is at the paintshop already 3rd week. Hope We will be ready at the end of this month and car will be ready at the end of June...
ATi Damper and didn´t post the wheels which came 2-3 months ago = BC Forged RS41, Crystal Orange, in 8x18, ET38 and weight 7.2 kg per Wheel. This set will be used on street driving, I´ve prepared set of Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires in 225/40/r18 size for them...
some headwork before the cleaning + and before the head skim
porting and polishing, work on the combustion chambers...
That looks fantastic, it's really good to see people going to great lengths for these cars. Exactly how I feel about my Resto project vzr! I'm after doing the bottom end shells on my SR16VE, any idea of where I could get the part numbers from? Thanks a lot
Great work with all of that! Very nice to see
NISSANdreamer: try Greg V. from Gspec.com or search on SR20-forum...
few updates - hopefuly We are coming to the end...
We have measured final compression ratio = CR is 12.6:1
And We have spent 1.5 day with timing... Today finished
just as a matter of interest, what were the timing events, and measured at what lift?
that has to be the best almera ever, everything you have done is amazing
Such a great car, but why 18's?
We spent a lot of time with timing adjustment and finished with these exact numbers:
We used valve clearance:
Timing regarding N1 cams and factory instructions should be 110° intake / 122° exhaust – both on low cam
Timing was quite off when We set as it was from the factory
We finished with: 111° on the intake, 117° on the exhaust side
valves opens +- at the same point as are the factory specs =
Intake Low: Opens at 0deg before TDC, Closes at 40deg After BDC
Exhaust Low: Opens at 64deg before BDC, Closes at 0deg After TDC
What is strange - when We have exactly measured low duration of the cams , it´s differs a lot!
Many thanks to you guys!
and why 18´s? Almera kit car also had 18´s for asphalt competitions... I need much more grip and have 225/40/18 size in the vehicle registration. Those wheels are very light /only 7.2kg per Wheel/ and wrapped in Pirelli Trofeo R tires /225-40-18/
timing events and duration change depending on the valve lift its measured at. nissan measure their duration at 0.04mm or 0.016''. if you measured at a different lift you may of got some different results. probabaly gunna change anyway once on the dyno. top work.
