Had some stuff arrive.  

Ok, run in tune done.   460rwkw on 15psi gate pressure. Sorry, no dyno sheet, it's just a run in to make sure everything is working as it should.   Small issue they're working thro

Update: engine build complete.   Went JE pistons with upgraded wrist pins. Howards billet rods. Should be good for 1200hp.

Will take a little while. I think the shop won't install the engine for another month. Getting the engine bay painted and tidied up. Then they want to do a 1000km run in before sending. Which works well, because I need to bed that clutch in...

What made you go with the howards rods? Ive got a set in my built sohc bit worried about breaking them when I turn it up past 1100hp after a mate has broken one. You got any plans for a bigger then the g35-900 in future?

My engine builder is a fan of US made stuff, and Howards seem to have a rep for being well finished billet steel rods.

Was originally going to get Carillo rods, but there was a 4 month wait on those. Looked at Nitto, but the Howards are significantly cheaper. 

The G35-900 will only make 600rwkw absolute max, so I'll be well within safety margins. Not interested in massive turbos

She be opened.

 

Apparently my oil pump housing had a chunk missing from unknown debris, and my cam lobes had some wear. Good thing I bought the new Dyno-Mite cams! New oil pump with billet gears and backing plate of course.

Surely this is boring after you've hit your lofty heights? 600kw is weak sauce for a barra these days. But I stand by my manual trans. I'm already in danger of losing the fun aspect with the clutch needed to handle it though...

Yeh you should be sweet then they will be plenty good enough for that. The set I know that broke was 1170rwhp through a powerglide 1300rwhp manual so think you have a good safety margin.

I think they're the sort of numbers the engine builder relayed to the shop. 

Mine will be interesting because its not peak hp that's the concern, it's peak torque low in the rev range (or lower than a typical big turbo)

So, everything is back together. Just waiting on a few sensors to be installed, trim dial and some heat wrap on the dump. 

 

Run in tune next week hopefully! 

 

I'll get some pics when it's done, but engine bay looks great now. Painted body colour, super tidy.
