  1. Project "Baller" - The quest to break 1000hp..

    nah was parted out years ago... sorry to dissapoint all.. I havent logged in here for so long I thought I would snoop and see if it was still up...
  2. Project "Baller" - The quest to break 1000hp..

    Shit this page is still up lol... Miss my build..
  3. CA18DET Help !

    Hi mate, if it is a jdm ca18det base ignition timing should be set at 10 degrees +/- 2 degrees btdc @ 750rpm.. I would start there first.. 15 degrees is the base timing for the euro model...
  4. s13 silvia bulb types?

    Are you talking the bulbs themselves? The front indicator bulbs are a T10 style spade push in type bulb.. The rear taillights are an 1157 for the single filament and 1157D for dual filament (brake light/headlight), rear indicators are also 1157... Hope thats what your looking for..
  5. Either way, you can use both auto and manual starter motors, I have interchanged them a number of times...
  6. Quick question - ca breathers

    There is no spring tension, it is a valve that is solely controlled by vacuum.. If you shake it the plunger will move freely and make a rattling sound..

    Yeah mate in one of my posts above is a link,,, Thanks mate...
  8. Project "Baller" - The quest to break 1000hp..

    Thanks mate it is time to move on... Need the dollars now and I lost my passion for building cars... When I am back on top of things maybe it will fire up the passion but for now, I would rather see some lucky bugger pick up a steal and enjoy it as I never got the chance too..

    Parting everthing out... All to be sold including engine/drivetrain etc... Cheers, Matt http://www.nissansilvia.com/forums/index.php?app=classifieds&module=core&do=view_item&item_id=4427
  10. Project "Baller" - The quest to break 1000hp..

    Well it has been a while since I have logged into the site... Unfortunately baller just sits in the garage now whilst I think about what to do with her... I just haven't had the enthusiasm to continue the work.. I won't be finishing off the compounding turbo setup, not that it wouldn't have worked, I just havent really got the inspiration anymore to achieve it.. If I don't find any inspiration soon, I think I will just part ways with the project if the right offer came up...

    almost is still not over... The joy of a real project is doing it by yourself, increasing your knowledge, improving your skills, accepting your mistakes, but most importantly its doing it for yourself, your way, your time. I think everyone will agree youve stayed true to these ideals. btw, keep it you slacker.. your still beating me Thanks mate, appreciate your thoughts as always.. Don't forget that I have also had the oppurtunity to meet likeminded people and make new friends along the journey too

    Where abouts did you get the sticker of the old person/disabled/cyclist and koala from? haha Found it on ebay a few years back and never saw them again lol..
  13. Project "Baller" - The quest to break 1000hp..

    Yeah no worries, sorry i thought you were talking about the garrett big buggers.. I did look at precision turbos but for what i wanted to achieve, they didnt really have the flow characterisics.. The 4718 turbo is .96 as it was the smallest i looked at a 1.08 but with some gas expasion calculations it would have been a little later to spool up than the .96 The greddy is a .63 as it needs to spool up quick.. With these setups conventional thinking goes out the window a little, your not trying to squeeze 3-5pr out of one turbo, your using efficent lower prs to generate a high pr.. I guess the crucial thing to remember is making sure you understand how much air your particular motor can ingest.. I have posted some information about these setups in the tech section... Unfortunately the fruits of my labour over the last 5 years may not be recognised, I am at the stage where my options to complete are almost out..
  14. Project "Baller" - The quest to break 1000hp..

    I dont think it will be a very good match with a 2871... the 6262 is a big turbo very big looking at 1400 odd hp worth of air being moved.. I looked at the maps for it, the pressure ratio is in a very sweet spot, but the exhaust wheel is huge on it, i think 130 odd mm from memory, not that it won't move, but its a lot of rotating mass to spool up.. I don't even know what type of power goal your looking at, but a better match for the 6262 would be in the 35 series or thereabouts, but thats just off the top of my head without using any of the calculation spreadsheets i created or studying specific compressor and turbine maps to give a decent ball park.. Not only that, you need to consider the physical properties of your engine setup, i.e displacement, rpms you want to use, type of fuel, injector sizes, port sizes, camshaft specs etc.. Hope this helps somewhat..

    lol.... agreed its a rough drawing... not much to update mate, been going through some difficulties in life, but i guess its a project, wish it was finished... But I have finished installing the carpet and finished off the audio guff... I might need your help shortly to Ill call you this week...
