Why not run the surge tank and pump in the engine bay then theres no need for the box/bulkhead and all the hoses.I used to run the std tank with std gti pump,use the std steel fuel lines to engine bay,run the feed line into a 1lt surge tank,gravity feed from st to bosch 044,return from reg to surge tank and overflow from st to metal return pipe, very simple and not much weight.

Any progress? is that just a box to hide all the equipment to be fume proof? I put a lexan cover on mine so I could see at a glance nothing has leaked.


All finished. Box covers the lot to be flame proof. Just made it simple (well the workshop did).

Cheers for the comments Dave. Not a bad idea re the tank in the engine bay, it's all done now sonwill stay like it for a while.

Will post pic later of finished product.

Not sure about Ruta, Saturday he did an engine, fixed it over night, then all was well Sunday, I think.

Mine, had a problem with a hall effect sensor, it had taken a whack and was overheating and shutting down, giving me a random miss firing problem, chased it all week end then worked it out Early sunday morning and pulled the pin so it didn't break anything else.

Rather dissapointing!!!!!

The black Honda from WA is going to be something to see at the nats, its dropped the U2L record by over a second and I think it will come down again at the nats.

yes the honda should be quicker again come nats they have more go faster bits on the way from what i've been told has only run 6 meetings since it was built also so lots more to come i think.

shame about your car tho the more track time you have the better just to get race craft up atleast look's like v8's up here will be very interesting 40 cars all very quick looking at the entry list i'll be happy to finnish in the top 50% with who will be here

Plenty going on.
New ECU, New front brakes & lines, New airbox, New seat/harness, Ally radiator, relocating the oil cooler to suit new radiator, 4.4 gearbox to build, 1044 cams to go in.
Just struggling with time to do it all.

Its either time or money...or both.

What sort of drop in lap times are you hoping for?

Im hoping he adds about 4 seconds a lap. Somehow I doubt it will work in my favour.

No mate I think there is some time in all that, the cams and seat will add the most to your lap times. however the older rubber this season will take some of it back. but re-rubber and you'll be gold.
How did you get on with the brackets?

A set of Yokahama 050 medium compound will be worth 2 to secs a lap in your GTi

Fantastic tyres

Well if I go from what is said here and I get a second from the cams and the few other things plus the 2 seconds from the tyres, with everything else being equal that should just about equate to the under 1600 lap record.

Somehow I doubt it will happen though.

JP, brackets on hold machinist is ill.

THis brakes set up looks absolutely business =P~ , but unsprung weight may go up a bit? , then again the amount of braking power may outpaced it

Unsprung wight increases by about 1.2kg's per corner. the calipers and bracket are a lot lighter than the standard GTi gear its the larger disk which is heavier. the alloy parts maintain the gain to as little as possible. The gain being confidence inspiring brakes all day long no matter where you are or what your doing. The hotter mine get the better they work, suggesting I haven't found the limits yet

I didn't actually weight the components I took off. But this would be simple to do as I still have the rotors and standard calipers sitting around.

As GTP has mentioned, the new rotors are a fair whack heavier, but the increase in brake capacity negates that. I haven't had fade or anything over a length of a race, even with cheap shitty pads, these came at the right time and I was able to make the change along with a few other thing that are happening at the moment.

It looks like a great setup! I'm Super keen to get the same thing on my build as soon as the funds are available. Its great to hear how well they work in a proven track setup as well as I'll be using them for track days/hill climbs and daily duties oneday

Good to see this work in progress too. I love seeing the GTi race cars evolve and continue to push newer "better" cars =D>

A few more bits and pieces. Sprint 500 is currently being wired in along with a few more gadgets for the data logger to see.
