Re: Track car build 5 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 72
Ive no idea what i need yet, i need to finish sanding and spraying the bodykit and rims for my road car just to get all them things out of the way, after that ill pull the engine out and see whats wrong with the track car.
Im very slow with sanding and spraying, ill probably be another 2 months at it, dont like it..

Thats it compared to the toms sideskirts, still needs a little more filler and sanding.

Now that i got the car where i want it i can get stuff done.
Got the cam cover off today, the noise was coming from the intake cam and it skipped 4 teeth when it was on the dyno but it looks ok to me...

Took the engine out and seen the oil pulley wheel was broken off, after taking the oil pump off i noticed it was seized.
Oil pump seized and the 320bhp broke the pulley off the shaft and the plastic cover kept it in place thats why there was so much noise.
Replaced the pump, put the engine back in today and fired it up there dosent seem to be any noise.

The limits of that oil pump were very low, good thing i kept the old oil pump from my road car.
Put the exhaust on today and put her down on the ground, had her idling, no strange noises
Hopefully she wont be acting up again before the next track day.

Strange noises came up, bottom end started rattling but it was very quiet could barely hear it unless i was listening to it.
Pulled off the shell bearings and they didnt look too healthy, ordered another set.
Checked the crank, no signs of damage on it.
Car isnt even being driven and things just keep breaking, WTF?

Finished off the fiberglassing the whole thing together today just needs a little sanding and a can of spray now

Re: Track car build 4 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 72
Yes much better but a little heavier with the extra fiberglass but will help keep the nose down
How you getting on with your car? did you find out what was making the noise?
