Engine build for all the boost!

Hey everyone! For the last 10 years, I have had a very nicely modified Mach that ran like a dream and took lots of hits on the street and track.

A simple run down of the car before now.
03 Mach 1 Azure Blue, non-IUP
Kenne Bell 2.1 @ 9psi
Stock Longblock
Stock Trans
PMP clutch
Steeda Tri Ax
60lb Injectors
Cobra tank, dual GT Supercar pumps
KB BAP
JLT CAI
SLP Longtubes
SLP X
Borla "Stingers"
FRPP Aluminum DS
4.10 Gears
GT Rear brake swap
17x4 / 15x10 Dark Star wheels
Hoosier bias ply fronts and bias ply QTP rears
UPR Tubular K & A arms
UPR Coil overs
UPR Control arms



I'm sure I am missing a few things. But the car made 490 RWHP on 93 with an awesome tune up from Fastlane Motorsports in Benson, NC.
Best time was 11.2 @ 127mph.

About a month ago, I was having a little too much fun with a 4 door Hellcat and ended up popping the motor.

Pulled it to find that it bent a rod, ripped the wrist pin out of the piston, and blew the side of the cylinder out.



So now I am in process of building the motor. The plan as of now is to turn the little 2.1 all the way up, and see how much steam it can produce. Ride it like that for a while, put together eaton swap parts and jam a huge twin screw on it.

Pics to come!

Re: Engine build for all the boost!

So far I have accrued:
Stock 03 Cobra rods
Manley Flat Tops, Steel rings
Boundary Gears
-8 Fuel line from tank to rail
Todd Warren Cams, spec'd for the build






I also got a block that is going .030" over, reusing my stock crank, and valve springs from Todd as well. The heads are getting .010" shaved off, and should be 11:1 compression. The car will be on E85.

Everything is currently at the machine shop getting balanced. I will be assembling this myself with my daughter as a project for us. She is 10 and loves helping in the garage with anything I do.

I will update as it goes, and try to take tons of pics as I go.

Re: Engine build for all the boost!

While the machine shop does their thing, I decided to paint a few parts. I found the closest thing to "vantablack" that is available to consumers. It is called Black 2.0, by Stuart Semple. It is the blackest black you can get. So far I painted the TB (BBK twin 65) the blower inlet and the valve covers.





It looks stupidly good in person. It is super black, matte and light consuming.

Re: Engine build for all the boost!

Bad *** car! Should surpass 600rw with that compression, corn and cams, not even upping the boost. Can't wait to see this build unfold.

Re: Engine build for all the boost!

They say things disappear when using that black; I would love to see it in person when you are done just to witness the black 2.0.

Pretty cool idea and good luck with the build.

She rode with 9 psi from 17k all the way to 40k. So 23k with no issues. But this was a weekend only car. Its been almost 10 years since the KB went on. Lots of track days and late night highway blasts with it.

700 is the dream number, but ill be happy with anything over 600 honestly.

Thanks! If all goes well the car will be at MW this year. It looks better in person, the images don't do it justice. I'm also going to do the timing cover and the shaker.

So this whole lockdown has put me a bit behind schedule. The machine shop has a reduced staff, and I also don't want to fork out another $1000 for the clutch, gaskets, fluids, etc. in the face of this thing. It may be more useful to have that cash in hand in the next few weeks.

But the machine shop bill is already paid. So as soon as they are done I can at least assemble and install the engine.

More updates to come! Thanks for all the support!

Heck that will be easy!!

The motor I just dropped in my Mach was from my bro's cobra, it's a stock 03 cobra motor with headers and a 2.9 whip made 635 rwhp on 93 pump through a 4R70w trans and when we put it on E 85 it made 704 rwhp @ 21 psi.

Ive made some slight mods and its ready to be re dynode next month..

I don't see there being any issue getting past 600 with his 9psi. Maybe closer to 700 if he can turn that 2.1 up enough.

Shift light set at 6700, probly spinning to 6800-7000 on the regular. N2MB WOT box, so no lift shifting every time.

Hopefully!

Machine shop got ahold of me today. Total Seal shorted me a ring, so as soon as it gets here and that all can be balanced it will be assembly time.
