Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

I made some more progress on the motor. If I manage to find some time this weekend the car might be running. Right now my goal is to have it track ready by PG2. As it sits right now I just need to hook up the wireing harness install the radiator and intercooler pipes and put on the transfer case.

on to pictures.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

IT'S ALIVE. .
I got the car all together and started yesterday. Today I the did some break in pulls. Following the motoman break in procedure. It runs smooth and feels a little stronger off boost. I plan on changing the oil tomarrow and running out the E70 left in my tank before turning it up. PG2 here we come.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

The car has been running great. I carpool to work, so my wife has been daily driving it for me. I think she has driven more miles sine the new engine than I have. I did take it for a long drive last week and was super excited when I drove the whole time with the AC on with no overheating issues. Saturday I retorqued the head studs and looked everything over. it seams good. I still haven't turned the boost up. I think part of me is scared its going to blow up again even though I know the new motor can take it. Im thinking of passing on proving grounds. I just don't have the money to waste right now, but well see.

I hear ya, it's not in my budget either. Been having fun doing full throttle runs all the time though.

Did you scope out the schedules for RFR or GCR for more track days?

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

I took the car to the track today. All in all it was a very good day. The car drove great the 250 mile round trip to Rockfalls and back. I was able to run a new personal best in th the car with a 11.347@112.41. The low trap speed was due to the car breaking up at the end of the track. I think if it hadn't broken up I might have managed the 10.99 Ive been wanting. I went back to the pits reduced the gap in the plugs changed the tune and went back out and managed to miss shift a automatic. Thank god for rev limiters. I managed 4 more run with 118MPH traps, but could never get a good 60ft to get me the ten. I am very happy with the car today exspecialy after how my season started.

Thanks. The engine has been running great. I like that I can push it hard and not have to worry about it like I did with the stock block.. Plus the added compression seams like it helps with the auto.

That slip shows the motor is working awesome.

Needs more boost.
