The The GT2 shell is back from the sandblasters! I have finished all of the major fabrication at last.
It doesn’t look like much at the moment but after a splash of paint and the composite panels are bolted or bonded on, it might actually look like the Porsche it was. Just a lot lighter, stiffer with better suspension geometry!
The new engine is going back together at the moment and should be on the dyno in the coming months. As in its previous incarnation, the engine is controlled by a Motec with one of my lightweight tefzel looms which saves just over 60kg compared to the factory loom and all of the various ECUs! This engine has some trick bits inside with a couple of Borg Warner turbos that I have found to be the performing turbos at the moment. More on that later…
Interestingly (to me anyway!) the chemists at ETS Race Fuels in France have recommended ESR GC4 as the fuel that has the best burn characteristics to suit this engine spec. It will be interesting to do another fuel comparison on the dyno. The gains by switching to the right fuels so far have been nothing short of amazing!
I can’t wait!
