Well I finally went boosted on my ITR. Here are some pics of my build up to September this year. The build is aimed at a fast reliable road car that I can use reliably on trackdays. It's currently only limited to 9psi and tuned on Hondata S300
Second hand Integra Si block purchased
Test fit of turbo and mani
CP pistons and Eagle Rods
Block decked and honed
Rod bolts tightened to correct stretch
Home made TIG welded IC pipes
Original ITR engine removed
Si block fitted with uprated 6 puck clutch
ITR head fitted to Si block and turbo ancilliaries fitted
Here are some more recent pictures after a few tweeks to the setup AC bits removed for safe keeping
Alloy rad test fit
Not much clearance on the wastegate pipe! :shock: :lol:
Random front shot of turbo gubbins :P
All fans fitted and oil cooler mounted 8)
Obviously it wasn't just as straight forward a job as that. Fitting the oil cooler/fans/sandwich plate and getting everything to fit properly was a pain it the arse!!!! I'm glad it all fits properly.
I ran the engine for over an hour and the fans never kicked in so I bridged the fan switch wires just to make sure I had correct rotation on them. With the original radiator fitted the fans would have definitely kicked in so the extra capacity of the new radiator must be helping already. Well see how it goes on track!!
Just got a few more jobs to do and it's time for trackdays!
Trackday pads arrived!!! Hopefully will find time to fit them soon!
Yes, a road car that can be driven to the track. It's not stripped out or anything like that. I've tried to keep it as standard looking as possible.If I need to do the school run to drop my kids off, I still can.
I can't believe how smooth it is with the Hondata S300 and for an old 57 trim (journal bearing) turbo, there's hardly any turbo lag. The guy that mapped it for me here in the UK did an awsome job! All I've done is tweaked the closed loop and cold start parameters because it was slightly rich in that area. I'm really pleased with the outcome. It's only running 8psi but for the track, that's all it needs. It has the torque of the turbo and the revs the Type R was designed to have. Honda should have done this from the factory!
