Well as the local Sydney guys know I have been doing a bit with the old girl of late so I thought I would start a thread aswell. A quick background on the car: This was my Dad's standard old ED GLI 6 cyl auto nothing special family car, Dad unfortunately had a heart attack in November 2008 that he didn't survive and I have ended up with the car as I couldn't let Mum sell it for the obvious sentimental reasons. I took Dad out to the drags at WSID to watch the Top Fuellers and whilst there he asked what his would run down the quarter, I told him about 17's but if we turbo'd it maybe 12's, he just laughed and said "yeah one day, I'm sure your mother would love that...." but seeing as he doesn't have a choice any more I am going ahead and doing it, lol. So when you look at the photo's and see the less then perfect bodywork you know why I didn't start with a better base for a project.

stage 1:
I brought back my old EB XR8 from the guy I sold it to 5 years ago and have put the suspension, front seats, dash, stereo, thermo's, diff and brakes into the ED. I then swapped the Windsor and auto for the turbo kit to be fitted. best $1800 I ever spent when you add up the value I got from it, lol.

stage 2:
I fitted the turbo, had to modify the exhaust manifold a little, and got a 3" exhaust fitted, ordered and received a water to air intercooler kit from frozen boost and fitted it up aswell. Because I am doing this as a sleeper project I have decided to mount the radiator for the intercooler in the boot so from outside you cannot tell at all its turbo'd.

stage 3:
this was a very easy stage to complete, it involves massive overboost from having to small a wastegate and putting 17-20psi into a standard engine until it blows up, LOL.

stage 4:
Engineering, I went for a drive this morning to see an engineer and the car has passed with flying colours and will soon be 100% legal... very happy about that!!!

upcoming stages:
Replace the motor with another std ED engine then begin the better build up of my original bottom end, at the same time I will be going for a C4 with stally aswell, and will be looking at suspension to help the car hook up and launch as best it possibly can.

so stay tuned, lol, hopefully more news soonish.

looking good rob..
how did it go on thy dyno??
and good to hear it pased engineers..

who said it was hard to engineer turbo/supercharged in nsw.. :lol: :lol: :lol:

im interested in how well the wta heat exchanger works in the boot???
thats something i never thought about.
half the reason i havnt intercooled mine yet is because i dont want to remove/modify my aircon stuff to fit intercooler or heat exchanger..

Thanks guys, It didn't get to do a full pass on the dyno yet as it over boosted and cracked a ring, before it died it made 195rwkw with 830nm (Peak) torque at 3/4 throttle at 4000rpm.

Hopefully there is plenty more left to come out yet.....

theres definatly alot more there Rob using the SCT gear make the tuning proces to easy, so 240 260rwkw with 12-14psi is doable, just need to sort that gate out & use my new method of cooling using the W2A...... :wink:

Good work Rob.
You cheeky bastard getting it all engineered!
Will talk to you on Friday night about your guy. I think I will be getting in contact with him soon before I pull the big grinder out.

Well not a great deal of progress of late except that it has passed the blue slip and is now 100% legally registered and the RTA has a copy of the Engineers certificate on record now.

at least I can now drive it without being paranoid all the time :)
