Hey guys what clutch/pressure plate/flywheel setups are you using for the extra power? Also does the larger Tial dpwg have more substantial mountings and seals than the 38?

Well Paul my friend, I am glad you finally started your own thread to talk about your beautiful 3.2L project car, wow! 3.2L? Moma! Anyway, it is so nice to hear that there are more 3.0Ls on Rennlist that are adding to our community. And I'm sure that between you and Nick, we will continue to hear more great things once 2007 rolls around. Anyway, I looked at the mods you've done and admired the nice eye-candy photos too. Very nice pal! You know it is funny, when people hear that someone is building a 3.0L, they automatically think that the person is looking to build a monster car. But with you, you made it very clear of your goals, how the car will be used, and that you want it to look pretty much stock too. Well let me tell you something, not only will you have a very fast car, as you were talking about in your postings, but, the car is so stealth looking it isn't even funny. If anyone ever pulled up to you, they would think it is a totally stock or lightly modded 951. Moreso, if you popped open the hood. Hell, if I was there and it was at a car show, I would be thinking that it's a stock 951? So the fact that you built a car that is unique, in that it is very usuable and has a stealth look to it too makes you stand out way above the average 3.0L owner. And for all the hard work you did, all the months you put into the car, I think you have one of the nicest 951s in our community. Without a doubt, the most "stealth" 3.0L I've ever seen in my life.

I know you are going thru a break in process now. Well I don't have to tell you, as I'm sure the engine builder did, just take it easy even though it must be as hard as hell with all that TQ at your disposal, ugh! God that would be killing me! And let me say this too. I know you aren't looking for a car with monster numbers, but when you work with John at Vitesse Racing, and get his custom chips and MAF, you're car will even go to the next level. You won't have to worry about your A/F ratio at different boost levels, for with his system, it will be perfect regardles of what PSI you run. I can say this from my own personal experience using "all" of his products I had on my other 3.0L. As Special Tool would say, "fact not fiction!"

Anyway, thank you so much for posting and sharing this project car with us. If and when you can, see if you can take some nice outside shots of the car, and some interior ones too. I think Baltic Blue is a gorgeous color for our cars, and it's a color that you don't see everyday. Let alone one that is a monster stealth 3.2L too!! Keep us posted and get some more photos. I would love to see more of your baby!

Cheers,

Looks great, congratulations! 3245cc works out to 108+mm bores or do you have a custom crank?

The crank is standard its all done with the sleeves.

Paul I cant believe you are getting 10 psi at 2400 rpm that is amazing. I think you may have ended up with the better setup, the 3.2 is spinning up the 10 hotside better than my 3.0 and combined with the race bearing setup its even faster. Maybe mine will have an edge on the top end but not so sure about that. Your car just felt so much smoother than mine on those generic chips. I hope I can get mine dialed in on the dyno to feel as good as yours did when I was in it. Hope our paths will cross soon and I can sample yours on full boost as my car doesnt feel that quick at 10psi although I only have 2000 rpms to feel it right now as the rev limit is 5500 and I normally change up at 4500 which means only 1000 rpms to feel the boost. I am going stir crazy not being able to get the miles on but I am going back to my Motec guy to see if we can fix the idle or install the stabilser valve I have now as well as fix the hot starting. Hopefully then I can get out there next week and put the miles on ready for dyno in early Jan. Maybe then this Vitesse Stage V will show its true colours as right now its just not getting warmed up at 10 psi (which is what I expected).

John do you have any experience with Motec to be able to review any of the data once we have tuned it to see if we are optimising your turbo?

As I said, I don't have the exact figures yet as my engine builder still has the spec sheets and is compiling a nice folder with all the details. There is so much to take in just now but I'm sure the figure was just under 3250 so we can't really claim to be a 3.3 unless we have a few more cc

I don't know as all the work was done by Johns contact in a local Turbocharger manufacturer. I do know it was worth the effort for them so that the KKK hot side bolts straight up to the downpipe.

[QUOTE=nick_968]

Maybe we could combine that together before I fit my VR MAF. I was planning to use the Dyno Dynamics road at Weltmeister at Silverstone as that's where all the UK 951's get tested and it provides a very good comparison.

I'm sure your 'rough diamond' will smooth out once you get a proper map in the MOTEC and you can start to experience the joy that I am going through right now

So Paul a few things I'd like to know if poss:
-What block did you start with?
-Is it a standard crank, if not, what?
-What exhaust mods?
-Clutch mods?
-Tranny/lsd mods?
-Any head/cam work?
-Stock inlet/throttle body?
-Brakes?
-Suspension?
-Intercooler?
These are genuine questions as I'm sure there are some looking at doing similar upgrades like yours. It sounds very promising. Good luck with the rest of it.
