Hey there everyone :)
Loong time no see.... Never mind that, here is some of the stuff I've been going about.
The car is on the verge of beeing rust free, so that means the engine must soon be ready to drop back in! After the paint job ofc...
BUT speaking of the engine, here os some of out thought on that.
Since I have got a CAD job ad Rotrex, doing work for Kolstrup himself, I have the opportunity to get a Rotrex supercharger for very cheap or free, when the car is running.
With great power comes, great amount of stress on the gearbox/diff (responsibility)
After having owned a RX8, (loved that car) I came to think, "That gearbox shifts darn good(!), is slim and can handle good amount of power!"
So now the thought of mateing the RX8-box mate to my little A12 have hit me...
I have the engine on a self-build engine stand and want to give it an overhaul. Most of all also want to tear it apart to get an idea of its condition.
I'm thinking of leaving the engine mostly stock, if possible I might get it ported to 32 on the intake and ?? exhaust(need some input here).
I have designed a throttlebody for EFI, with minimal turbulence in mind, based on the idea of a RollerThrottle:
Haveing checked with a local machine shop, the design will be expensive as hell to make.. like 5000AUD *_*
Need to make some corrections to make it more simple/easy to make..
So there is plenty of things left to do
