04 zx3 body + D23E + cosworth = SEX

haven't posted here in a while, but i'm the guy with the cervini's sex and the carPC and an active member of the gump crew...but

omg

the day we have all been waiting for (you know you've been excited)

all those parts sitting around for a year with some C-word stamped on them like cuzwerth or something are finally on the car

however it was a bitch

seriously

most useful tool was the SAWZALL!

seriously

wanna see how we do it in the Gump Crew?

lets go


FIRST OFF: i wanna give a huge thanks to my boy, Jeremy, slocussvt, who drives the euro sex monster SVT for donating his shop, his time, and for towing my ass all the way to NC to get the beast dyno-tuned by Tom.

now that thats all over, check it out!

we first (while the engine was cooling) replaced my rear sway bar with an SVT one with urethane bushings and upgraded endlinks (thanks to dyerjg for selling it to me CHEAP!)
stock:

new one installed:



before engine shot:

new intake:



torn down:



manifold out!



COSSIE ON!



had to modify the cruise control bracket to make it work...cossie said it wouldn't work but they were WRONG


so remember how i said the header was a bitch? well this is how we got it off...
SAWZALL!





back of the head


the cossie header went on remarkably easy



reassembled this morning!






as for how it runs...well untuned it runs like absolute shit haha...loud as crap too, however it is sitting outside Tom's shop right now awaiting an amazing dyno-tune and afterwards will purr like a kitten..

yay!

want videos?

BEFORE:
steeda SRI, Cosworth BS delete, custom Borla flex-back exhaust deleting second cat



AFTER:
steeda SRI, Cosworth BS delete, custom Borla flex-back exhaust deleting second cat, PLUS Cosworth Intake Manifold, Cosworth Race Header (deletes all cats)

no leak i was lying...just fingerprints and shit burning off the header

sweeeeeet

then we trailered it up to tom's and i parked it outside...anyone know who these other foci belong to? i swear i recognize some but i can't think who for the life of me...



waiting patiently


who's are these?








DYNO NUMBERS!

Tom is cool as shit, big thanks go out to him for making major power fiddling on his laptop...I don't have a graph but i'll see if i can get him to email me one but anyways the numbers are:

173.4whp at redline, a perfectly diagonal line all the way up
155(ish)wtq available at like 2000rpm and flat the whole way

which works out to ALMOST 200hp at the motor after factoring in a 10% drivetrain loss...so I'm happy

but OMG this is a beast to drive, its like nothing i ever thought my car could do...just pulls and pulls all the way to my new 7100rpm redline

the drive home was quite fun

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED ME!

Dyno Vids:





Removed all the EVAP stuff today...PZEV FTL:


removed air pump and all the random vacuum crap




i am soo happy with this thing...best money i've ever spent

I'm curious to see what the intake manifold gave your car as far as power.

That is awsome Evan! Cosworth header and Intake Manifold........SICK!
Can't wait to see your focus again at FocusFest. Mine sure has changed a lot.
Those pics of your car in front of Tom's Garage are awsome shots.
Brings back memories of my car being parked there. You're gunna love your tune. Tom is the MAN!
