2017/2018 Updates.
Tuesday, November 07, 2017 4:47 PM
Been a while since I have posted on here with updates.I have been posting on my facebook page for the car (@jmhz2497). SO the last couple years I have been attending this half mile racing event just south of my. Just watching friends and really badass cars race in the half mile. I finally decided it was something I wanted to do. This year it was my goal and I put money aside as it is not like going to the local drag strip to race. We decided at the last minute to get a new, bigger house (3 car garage, yes). It was looking like I would not get to do the Half Mile event, but things went my way and I did it 2 weeks ago. It was soo much fun. Car preformed great!! I won the FWD class for the day I ran on Sunday. top speed of 124.44mph. I was trying hard to get the 125mph mark, but couldn't. I was beating Golf R's and even some v8's.People really do not realize what it takes to run the half mile. I'm already planning my next one, but of course I want to get faster as well. Below are some pictures taken, and I will post a couple video's later as well. Also some pictures from a local car show a few weeks back as well. My focus is on getting my built motor in the car along with engine bay paint work.






Local show with my son.

congrats on the win!!

We have roll racing semi-locally but no standing 1/2 mile or mile races. I think it would definitely be cool to try.

if you still have the air dam below the rad, might try completely taping off the center section of the front bumper to see how it does. the lower air dam should direct enough air up into the radiator I would think.

I think you are right, but I have a air to air intercooler for the M62, so taping that off would hurt the cooling of the intercooler.

Forgot you had the air to air...

Maybe try closing up the rear end to keep air from getting trapped behind the rear bumper... like an undertray of sorts.

yes this wold be something to look into. I believe me built motor will be in before I run another half mile event. That is the plan at least.

Maybe. First built motor needs to go in and see what that brings for power.

Here is the trophy I got for the Half Mile event.



The most recent change is this:


Also every year our local cars and coffee has a cars and coffee at the Concourse Elegance at Amelia island. You have to submit to have your car in it and I have always been denied. This year I was accepted. This is not until March, but I will be posting pictures of course.

Car was on the Dyno tonight. It made 241whp and 259wtq on the E47 mix and tuning. Picked up 19 whp and 23wtq with the E47.

Now I need to go back and run the 1/2 mile again.

That is about the same gain I had with 101 Octane gas. We didn't tune on the dyno so there might be some more power left to be had with another degree or 2 of timing.

So some more small updates. I'm slowly getting things in order to pull the motor and trans and paint the engine bay/install some bushings.install built motor. I think by the end of summer I might be doing that, but we will see.

I did get a new part and got it installed.

What pulley are you running on the m62? Also, I'd love to see more pictures of your intercooler setup. Also come more info on how well it works for you..

2.7 on the pulley. Pictures will be hard, but I can get detailed pictures during tear down for motor swap later this year.

IAT's are really good. I am spraying a small jet of water only, which I think doesn't make much difference. I need to do some testing on that again. I usually do not see IAT's over 135, but really depends on what the temps are when I start. I have what I call a purge button setup on the water, to spray before a run to bring down iat's before a run. I have had this for many years and on my M45 I could bring temps down 20-25 degree's before making a pull. With the intercooler setup I do not see no where near as much as the intercooler does a good job bringing temps down.

That's awesome. Buddy of mine did an air/air with a tvs 2.5" pulley. The temps are very well under control. I've always wanted to make a similar purge button for my meth injection kit for exactly the same reasons. I think I will based on what you've said here.

I recommend it.

Also add my M62 is never too hot to touch.
