Photobucket have applied "improvements" to their site - cocked up a lot of their users image locations - hence images not now showing ;)

Hi,
Engine bay looks like this now:


I am running about 0.8bar boost at the moment and borrowed friends gTech yesterday.
0-100km/h


Had very little traction with 1. and 2. gear.

50-100km/h took less time than 0-50 ;D


Quarter mile speed shows that there is some power.

100-190km/h

hmm...
Nice project...

I have some questions about your OMEGA.

1) you didn't say anything about turbo. Which brand? Model?

2) What about ECU?

3) Now running on custom Headers or stock manifold?

4) Exhaust system? 

Thanks

How do you get on with the supposed over heating issues?  I'll be fitting 2 further electric water pumps to help flow the water round the system  :y

So far the overheating issues seem BS. Havent had any problems with coolant temp. Maybe it becomes an issue on a track days but not when daily driving or at top speed and drag races.

For max cooling capabilities I bought brand new radiator and expansion tank too. Also I got rid of the factory oil cooler and fitted an oil to  air type unit. I dont have the three way valve in the heater circuit neither, because no air-con.

Or I am just been lucky so far ;D

Ah ok, very interesting! How did you go about ridding the car of the oil cooler?  I've tried to fit an air oil cooler myself but the sandwich plate that would fit between the oil filter and block won't fit because there's a sensor right near it!
