Thread: t3h build.

  1. #1

    t3h build.

    I didn't want to really go public with my build info until it was done, but alas, I need the expertise of everyone here. I think I've covered all areas, however if anyone of you can chime in with thoughts, ideas, suggestions, or just whatever, it'd be appreciated. I'm putting everything up here, even if I feel it has no relevance, whatsoever.

    I do know I've left the transmission close to stock as of now, but that will be addressed when it needs to happen. Doing it later will also buy me some time to find someone to make some straight cut gears for me.

    Anyway, the list:

    Get a Cometic Head Gasket.
    What about head and main studs?

    You'll need bigger injectors. 550s will maybe... MAYBE get you 18psi.
    I have 750s and at full boost 22psi, I'm at 75% IDC (perfect, and a little room too!)

    MAYBE something other than Spec Clutch. Mine is iffy. I don't feel it can do 350whp.

    Thats it... for now

    Two schools of thought on the pistons..

    They will not melt as easy with the coating..
    They could cause detonation sooner because they will not allow the heat to leave via into the engine... (Oil Squirter Under Piston Cools Chamber)

    Aside from that looks like a really solid build..

    I'm thinking that depending on the boost, you might want to keep a close eye on the A/F if you decide to run those injectors.

    Well, 550 was the highest that Ken and I knew of at the time, but now with the information I'm getting, I may go higher.

    Plus, I'd like to find something I don't have to make a harness for, if possible.

    Which would you go with then? I've read both of those debates, and while both are legit, I have yet to find any hard proof of either case. I highly doubt I'll ever find proof, as it's a bit hard to do unless you have two identical motors with the ONLY variable being the coating (eg, temps, pressures, etc must all be the same), which won't happen.

    The idea of it protecting makes sense but so does the deflection of heat.

    Also, why the head gasket? This is yet another thing that I hear two sides two, one says stay OEM while the other says get aftermarket.

    search for Cometic, they make AWESOME head gaskets. This is the ONLY maker I would use other than Mazda. Had Cometic had Protege gaskets available when I did my build, I would have definitely gone that route. The cometic gasket can take a beating (much more boost than the stocker).

    Perhaps ask Juan, who I believe sells them now too.

    Who told you to stay OEM?

    Also Clay- check into adapters for injectors. some companies make plug and play adapters that would plug into the stock injector wiring that'd allow you to run the different clip without wiring.
