Donington Race Sept 2016

Time to hit the track and race at Donington Park with the CSCC New Millennium:

Had a clean race with some good overtaking with Team Mate Mark Neville..

More Mapping @ Shark Performance

Fuelling fixed and running nice and rich now, we were kicking out around 300Bhp  and 425 lb-ft of turque with this test BBT KO4 Hybrid Turbo.

Next Donington with the CSCC New Millennium!

New 550cc Injectors..

We have been chasing our tails a bit with the fuelling on the TT for some reason we weren’t getting enough fuel into the cylinders as we expected which was holding the performance back.
We had used bigger 550cc injectors, added a second inline race fuel pump, an upgraded in-tank pump a new race fuel filter, but still it was running too lean?

Maybe it was the Injectors? Since they were all working the same on each cylinder they didn’t appear to be faulty. So the thought was - clogged injectors?

Time to test the injectors..

On removing them I thought I’d double check the serial numbers, and to my surprise they were the wrong ones! We had ordered Bosch 550cc injectors for the TT and we had been sent Bosch Standard upgraded ones at around 260cc (0280158315)– same price, plus they look the same!

     Wrong number!

Explains a lot..

New 550cc (0280158117) fitted today so it’s back to Shark Performance for another Dyno run!

Correct 550cc ones..

New -New Fuel Pump!

Our secondary inline Bosch 044 Fule pump was cavitating - so we fitted an uprated DW65V in-tank pump from Deutchworks to give it some more gas:

All runs much quieter now with no cavitation on the secondary pump..

CSCC Anglesey 2106 - Class Win

Botls and Bushes..

After Cadwell the Titanium manifold/turbo bolts had be bent slightly sideways indicating that the engine was pulling on the exhuast. So it was time to replace the lower engine mount for a poly bush type:

Plus we swapped the titanium bolts for stronger M10 x 80 MARINE Grade Stainless BOLTS (A4/316). The 80mm ones had a longer shank of around 50mm giving more strength around the stress point.

Also the Throttle Body died, it looked like it had got water in it somehow over the years, so we bought a new after market one:

The TT recognised it was a new one and did an automatic Throttle Body alignment..

Finally we also fitted some new front Tarox race pads..

Cadwell Testing

We took the TT to Cadwell for a test run of the new ECU mapping..

Wow what a difference it was revving smoothly right up to the red line and running really cold. In fact the air intake manifold was ice cold after 30mins on track.

I have to say the car is super balanced now and is totally planted around corners – no understeer or oversteer – awesome!

New ECU & Shark Re-map

We recently changed to a wideband ECU and a Beach BuggyTurbos custom hybrid turbo, so a full custom remap was needed. We spent three days down at Shark Performance who have now got the car running beautifully. We have kept the power to around 300 Bhp for now but there is room to go up to possibly 340 Bhp.
