Re: Mark's Talon

update: picked up a 97 GSX and while looking at it, I thought I've seen the car before.. Turns out it's Blakes old one! Guy he sold it to blew it up, then sold it to a guy who did a 6 bolt swap but couldn't get it started.. and now I have it!
Plan is to swap my stock block in and put the head from this one on, throw link at it and drive it though the winter or sell it.

Re: Mark's Talon

Well I have all the parts needed to finish it up! Block goes to the machine shop this week I'm hoping. I also picked up a new resonator and tip for the exhaust to hopefully get rid of some of the rasp and quite it down.. also installed my launch control device and HBC in the cockpit. Got my new bov welded on and picked up a 2gb eclipse front bumper (since I love the way they look) and a set of 2gb headlights to go with equipped with hids.

Can't wait to start putting it together!

Re: Mark's Talon

Little update.. Took everything to work and got every last bit of the fire extinguisher powder off. It made a mess and was in every hole/ crevasse. I also decided to get a Kiggly main girdle this go around with a new (reman) 150amp alternator. Just waiting to hear back from the machine shop so I can order my pistons and injectors.

Re: Mark's Talon

Block is still at the machine shop. Got my alternator wired up with some 2gauge awg and a 150amp breaker. Next is the inline fuel pump with a Hobbs switch.

Re: Mark's Talon

Almost assembly time! Machine shop is honing the block then I can order pistons. Until then I have started to build a new coolant reservoir and catch can.

Re: Mark's Talon

Injectors and pistons showed up today! Went with the 2g wiseco hd's with the e85 coating and a set of FIC 2150's. I believe I now have everything to get it back on the road!!

Re: Mark's Talon

Block won't be done until the beginning of July so possibly this fall one we will see how the tuning process goes.

Re: Mark's Talon

Coolant reservoir done. Still debating on if I want to dump the catch can to atmosphere or if I want to add a Venturi tube/ hose to the exhaust to help with suction.

If that's the route you want to go, Vibrant makes a kit.

Otherwise, I'd go to the intake/turbo inlet if it's a baffled or filtered catch can.

Re: Mark's Talon

Catch can is baffled.. I know a few people who have gotten the vibrant one and I have made the conclusion that they don't put it at a big enough angle so it doesn't create much of a vacuum effect. I don't have an intake yet and not sure if I will have one made by this fall, that and I'm not to fond of going back to the intake pre-turbo. Even the thought of going to the exhaust scares me a little bit with fuel vapors.

Re: Mark's Talon

With a properly baffled catch can you shouldn't have any issues at all going before the turbo. I'd much rather pull a vacuum on the can than just venting. There's a reason why lots of the big V8 drag racers run crank driven vacuum pumps to their valve covers.

Re: Mark's Talon

Not sure how well the baffles will work. I am going to be upgrading to -10an fittings on the next can I make with -10's on the front of the valve cover. By then I should have an intake setup made and will probably run it to that.

Re: Mark's Talon

Finally heard back from the machine shop and the block is said to be done this week! I can not wait much longer now knowing it's getting close! Hoping to put it together and get a good base tune on it in time for the cookout.

Re: Mark's Talon

Machine shop called back and unfortunately had more bad news.
My brand new MAP Howard rods don't fit into the Wiseco pistons because the pin bosses are too wide. How does this happen?!? Anyways I will be contacting MAP before anyone else gets screwed.
The fix is to machine the rods down to fit into the pistons.
Block should be done next week if everything else goes as planned.
Unfortunately I won't be making the cookout
