I'm glad you are going to use black wrinkle powder coating on that. I was going to make that suggestion. It'll look awesome.

Where are you located? I can't fit one of my pipes in my oven.



Thanks guys. Got my rallyroad gauge pod. Thing is awesome. All metal construction, fits perfect. The BEST gauge pods you'll get.

Re: Hellrot Turbo Build

I honestly am super impressed with the whole setup. Zeitronix data logger and gauge setup is awesome and the rallyroad gauge pods could not be nicer. These gauges can have two parameters each, plus you can add other gauges plug and play.

I'll be getting the little square display with 4 additional parameters and fitting it to the sunglass holder area I believe.

I'm planning on boost, AFR, intake air temp, oil and water temp, and oil pressure. I may add EGT as well since the manifold has the bung. I'll also tap rpm and tps for data logging.

Double AFR gauges? Baller. How come you need two since you have a downpipe where all of the cylinders are collected?

Great work Matt looks terrific I love the rabbit ear setups looks so clean. Wrinkle black in the engine bay is always a win looks so cool. How good are you at powder coating? ;D

Re: Hellrot Turbo Build

They're not double lol. I can make the gauges read whatever I have plugged into the zeitronox box.

Each gauge can have two parameters. I'll have these set at boost and AFR for now.

yeehaw!! looks like a lotta tech there, matt. is all of this datalogging for custom tuning?? will you be able to tune as you go along with this??


never have played with tunes before, but it's similar to jetting a carb and timing the distributor and adjusting the advance mechanisms (hey, at least i didn't say set the points........i'm not *that* old....)


anyway, digging this thread, and as soon as i am able to get some cash together (which will probably be sometime in january at the earliest) i will touch base with you regarding your guages you mentioned selling. if you sell them before then, so be it. i have certain obligations that need to be addressed (happens with things like mortgages and whatnot...) so i have to budget my 'play money' wisely.

I'm OK at coating I suppose. I don't have an ideal setup but it works.

Yes, data logging for tuning plus it's soo much cleaner and easier to hook up gauge wise.

I can get a little black box with an SD card to record info, or plug a laptop right in and see and record live data.

I will start fiddling with tuning but I need to do a LOT of research and reading first. Miller base tune shoukd be close and safe.

FenderBender,

I am located in Bergenfield NJ. If you want You can ship your stuff to me if its too far for you. I get a great discount with UPS through my other company so I pass those savings on to my powder customers. What I usually do is email a shipping label to the customer and add the discounted shipping to the final invoice.

My oven is 6'6" x 4'6"


Let me know if your stuff will fit.

Christian

Kinda. The center display is digital and can show anything. The other numbers are permanent but can show boost, AFR, etc.

Drove her around a little, I think it's making about 11psi on a 9psi spring, which is GREAT! especially since I have only a downpipe, no other exhaust. Feels fast, but I didn't get into it a whole lot, spun 3rd gear. I did finally get to clean it up.

I'm stoked for you dude! Looking great! Glad you aren't getting any boost creep. What manifold were you using again?


You're gonna want get a hose on that CCV before you give your intake an oil shower, though

Looks really really really good! You should replace that centre arm rest though, looks gross. I've never really understood those colored hooks I see everyone putting on their cars, and I noticed you put a hole through your removable bumper trim flap. I see a lot of honda civics driving around with them mounted somewhere under their rear bumper. Whats the purpose of this? Why not just use the included hook in the tool kit whenever you need to use it instead of having a fancy one mounted at all times? Other than that I can't wait for you to dyno this car, you are going to dyno it right? Also have you decided to just not use an air filter, or is that still coming? Looks great man!

He has a screen filter on the turbo because of clearance issues. He's had that two hook on there for as long as I remember. I don't mind it. Because racecar.

I believe that armrest is covered in Alcantara, a fabric that is supposed to give all Bimmerphiles instant wood. I don't care for Alcantara myself. It's grossly overpriced CLOTH, but in this case it doesn't look bad. It certainly doesn't look "gross".

Gross? Interesting. I do want a new armrest and boot covers though. It will be dynoed eventually. Hooks are there for when I track the car.
