craziness! I really like the work gone into this vehicle
new headers - custom 4-1 stepped headers with megaphone with reverse cone. Custom calculated in pipemax, simulated in Lotus software exactly to engine parameters /cams, diameter and length of the valves, intake and exhaust ports diameter and length, intake plenum volume, comp. ratio, bore and stroke etc./
Made in A-M-A exhaust
Absolutely beautiful set of headers there! How's the performance?
thanks, We will see on a dyno... Seems that it has more power from 5600 RPM to 9000 RPM and from the feeling it has much flatter power/torque curve from 5600 RPM = what is cam switch point on my setup. Holds the power until the end. But that is a feeling, We will see the facts on a dyno
Last setup - how it actually looks under the hood /engine bay/
testing on Sunday morning with friends...
We had a small track day at gokart circuit last Saturday. Some pictures in the article + link below:
This N15 must be the most expensive and over the top project on this club's site tbh, it's awesome still though.
Wish i could afford even half of this because prices here compared there is like 5 times higher because nobody does anything cheap around here, you could almost buy like a brand new M1 BMW with 350 or so horses from a dealer with the money that'd go into tuning a Almera this far here locally. (M1 BMW is around 70k euros and is probably worst way to spend that amount of money, GT-R money basically.)
Granted, M1 Beamer or GT-R is not as impressive as this N15, nicer maybe but not as impressive.
Hopefully i get motivated enough myself someday to put some of my project's stuff on the sites, it's been rather interesting path for my N16 getting small upgrades bit by bit during the last 5-6 years, i guess i'll finish the project first and then show the overall aftermath whenever it's done, but hey, at least 10 years worth of time left with my N16 since it'll probably never die at this rate (everything under the car replaced, polyurethane there and here, all regular N16 problems fixed and so on) basically the only original parts are the engine, transmission, interior panels and drive shafts, lots of work hours but not much to "brag" about, tbh even if i went through all the trouble like getting custom intake and exhaust manifolds, custom catback system, hi-flow cat, forged internals for engine i'd only get like 130-140 horses since it'd be impossible to turbo charge it around here since there's no petrol turbo N16.
Anyhow, i'm really waiting for some updates for this project of yours.
