nsfw Turbo Van
« on: April 18, 2009, 01:44:00 AM »

As iv had a few people ask me to put my build up I decided to do another write up as I'm banned from HMT and cant copy it.
My ride is a 2000 Mitsubishi L300 van with a 4G64 2.4L turbo 5 speed manual. It has Mitsubishi legnum VR4 16inch rims, lowered 2 inchs rear and 1.5 inchs front. I got hold of an LSD center from a L200 ute for $100 which is fucken cheap, before I had the LSD the van would just fry 1 tyre and not go any wear. Now it bags up both but hooks up quite well. I wanted to build a sleeper so the out side of the van looks quite standard and isn't too loud at idle, it also has a tow bar, a "I love lawn bowls" sticker on the back and retains the standard 1.5 inch exhaust out the back but isn't hooked up.
It was built on a budget out of alot of free parts and dodgy RHMT welding and fabrication.
-Walbro intank pump
-50/50 mix Water methylated spirits injection with a 5L plastic fuel can converted.
-cheap 3inch pod filter with a whitey bend intake.
-IHI VF 23 wrx sti turbo (way too small)
-DIY log manifold
-3inch dump into home made 3inch muffler box that dumps a foot before the diff under the car.
-De capped WRX injectors 800+cc's
-Bored out standard throttle body from 55mm to 60mm using a standard wrx throttle blade with ported manifold.
-Reground turbo cam
-Haltech E6K ECU  street tuned by me with a wideband and chassis ears.
-2 step limiter that I see 10psi with cut set at 3800rpm (shoots flames)
-Diy shift light by using 4 LED's in the dash.

This car was a great learning experience and is fucken fun to drive :noel:. I have had quite a few races to about 130kph against a few modded evos, skylines and STIs and have beaten all of them by at least 1/2 a van length :noel: . I tried to play with a 2jz turbo supra last night but he just laughed and shook his head lol, I was a bit disappointed. I see 12psi of boost by 2400rpm and it pulls hard to 7000rpm.

I cannot think of a better way to put it. OP is my vote for "Noob" of the year for sure.

Well I street tuned my van last night . I wound the boost up to 16psi and the improvement was huge, Unfortunately after a few launches off the 2 step in 2nd gear the clutch got hot and was slipping slightly. When I first turboed it the standard clutch lasted about 3 streets lol, I then when to an RX7 pressure plate and an organic disk which is what is slipping now. My clutch guy at the time couldn't find anything else that would fit in the bell housing so I'm a bit fucked off that i need to upgrade again. Its booked in for a power run on the dyno on Friday so it should be interesting if the clutch holds up, and on Saturday is drag racing which should be interesting.

Well the clutch has been fine after it cooled down. I had the car on the dyno but was getting a miss fire above 4800rpm, I thort it was from the rich mixtures but I later found out I had my plugs gaped at .9mm ::). The car managed to put out 240rwhp @ 4600rpm with 13psi of boost  before it miss fired, so I imagine it should have alot more in it when it goes to 7000rpm and I turn the boost back to 18psi. We had to put a few people in the back as it was wheel spinning on the rollers lol.
I deiced to go out for a tune after I put new plugs in, It was going well until a 4th gear rev limiter snapped my p/s belt and took out a coil lead. It cut the end completely off so i put it in the coil hole and tapped it up and drove home with out any problems :noel:.I put on a new belt and crimped on a new end on the lead because all the shops were shut and racing was in the morning, I had to wind the boost back down with the crappy lead end to stop misfiring.
Went racing and could only manage a 14.8@98mph with a 2.6 60ft and problems selecting gears >:(. I managed one good 60ft of 2.11 but couldn't get 3rd gear and run 15.1@84mph which mean I should get a low 14 when I can shift the thing. I am also going to put another Alcohol nozzle pre turbo to try bring my 140Deg F Inlet temps down.

You raise a good point lol. It was mainly a muscle car meet and since we have never built cars here all our muscle cars are from the US?? But I never see a Japanese flag for the import days haha

Its fucken hard to get off the line, I launch it in 2nd gear. 1st gear is usually over to quick. I didnt have a p/s belt on either which didnt help (it broke after the first run), on one run I was side ways for the whole 60fter.

Haha she's still going strong as a daily driver, it has huge traction problems till 4th gear unless carefully driven. I will have to put a build thread up for my other play toy. 1994 Mitsubish GSR (same as an EVO 2 but with a turbo 1.8L). heres a vid of me out launching a R32 GTR that the owner couldnt drive for shit. Its also been built on a RHMT budget/style, hockey puck mounts ftw. O0

4G93T. It will soon be replaced with a 4G64 2.4L and a HX40 :noel:. Best bit is the drive train is bullet proof standard.

Yeah I saw your post on ZeroG, do the 4g6X motors bolt up to the 4G9X transmissions?  Are the bolt patterns the same?  Here in the states, the Volvo S40 comes with the 4g93, wondering if that might be a possible source of parts.
